Most likely, yes. Can’t see them finish Nightmare this year, no chance. And if I remember correctly there were some talk a while ago about Blonde being pushed to 2021.
Annette is also 2021. No clear word on Ammonite, though.
I actually think the role of the nephew, Ernest Burkhart, is the more interesting one, compared to Agent White. It’s very different from what we’re used to see from Leo. However, I can’t see anyone other than White or Mollie Burkhart be the lead of the story, so I wonder if Leo is taking more of a supporting role as Ernest.
I’d say Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen) and Jerry Rubin (Jeremy Strong) will be standouts considering what they did during the trials. It’s gonna be so fun to watch. Plus Bobby Seale (Yahya Abdul-Mateen) because of the horrendous way they treated him during the trial, even if his part will be a little bit smaller than the others on tri…[Read more]

So, for the last couple of months, there’s been popping up news about whatever James Mangold’s next project will be.
In January, it was reported that James Mangold was going to direct the film Going Electric, a biopic about Bob Dylan and his controversial transition from folk music to rock during the 60’s. According to sources, Searchlight…[Read more]
A film adaption of the Vanity Fair article The Golden Suicides, about two young artists and the events that lead up to their deaths. A fantastic read that have potential to become quite a remarkable adaptation.
mansos replied to the topic Viola Davis, Chadwick Boseman in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ for Netflix in the forum Movies 4 months, 1 week ago
In the play, Ma Rainey doesn’t show up until about one third through, which makes me wonder if she really can be considered lead
It all depends on how Sorkin choose to focus the story. There’s a great gallery of really interesting characters, but unfortunately they can’t really give them all the spotlight in just a film. For some reason, I’ve been under the assumption that the story is going to focus on Redmayne’s Tom Hayden, but I don’t have any info to back this up. I…[Read more]
What worries me the most about Ana de Armas’ chances are the fact that Blonde is reported to be a really experimental film, almost no dialogue and relying heavily on the visuals. I’d love for Ana to score a win (or at least a nomination) but I believe her chances would be bigger if Blonde had been a straight up biopic. But I’m keeping my finge…[Read more]
My gut feeling right now is that The Last Duel is gonna be a disaster. I don’t have faith in Ridley Scott, Damon or Affleck handling the subject matter well. However, I do trust Nicole Holofcener and I would like to think that Comer and Driver are smart enough not to do the project if the writers/director didn’t handle it well.
But yeah, jury’s…[Read more]
What strikes me is the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any frontrunners for potential Best picture winners as of right now. Just look at what we got:
Tenet: Nolan hasn’t fared very well with the Oscars before, and I can’t really see them going for the kind of sci fi flick Tenet seems to be. Also, it’s very rare for a sci fi to win Best…[Read more]
I’d be SO happy if Daniel Kaluuya and/or Lakeith Stanfield are nominated, but the August release date has me worried.
I think the film’s best chances are in the acting categories. Both of them are very talented actors, but as of right now the leading category seems more stacked than the supporting, so whichever of the actors end up in sup…[Read more]
Close’s part is definitely the meatier one, no doubt. Depending on the other nominees, this could very well be her year. It’s the kind of role I could see the voters be into. Adams and her role on the other hand I can’t see winning this, but a nomination is possible. But between the two of them, Close is definitely the front…[Read more]
Having read Hillbilly Elegy, I can say with certainty both Close and Adams are playing supporting roles. There’s no way you can consider either of their characters leading roles without changing the story to its core.
So if they will be up for nominations, it will be in the supporting category and nothing else.
My predictions, potential winner in italics:
- “Da 5 Bloods” (Netflix)
- “The French Dispatch” (Searchligt Pictures)
- “Hillbilly Elegy” (Netflix)
- “Mank” (Netflix)
