Black Is King wouldn’t since we don’t know have it was ever intended to have a theatrical release (Lemonade & Homecoming competed at the Emmys I imagine BIK would be the same). As a director, Beyoncé’s track record is pretty outstanding, Lemonade will be remembered as one of the defining cultural-shifting films of the 2010s. If BIK keeps up the quality I wouldn’t mind if Disney tried an Oscar run.

So how do you explain that many on this forum want an Oscar for Christian Bale in the leading actor category? An Oscar for supporting actor isn’t enough?
what are u quoting me for? I didn’t say they aren’t Oscars nor did I say he shouldn’t win a lead Oscar.July 3, 2020 at 1:26 pm #1203565319
They technically are allowed in technical categories and documentary in some cases, I believe. But Ariana Grande performing her own concert as herself isn’t the same thing as an actor playing a role on stage. She wouldn’t be eligible.
As long as she has some skits in her concerts/fan interaction/those filmed interludes, the studio can stretch it and say it’s “acting”. But imagine certain artists begging big artists to be opening acts so they can be campaigned in best supporting actor/actress. We don’t need to name names but we all know which ones who care about billboard hot 100 and Grammy noms/wins would definitely jump on this chance lol. Hell I wouldn’t blame them either.July 3, 2020 at 1:19 pm #1203565305
I mean if they let this be eligible, then they’d have to let singers who film their concerts and release for theatrical release be eligible in the future.July 3, 2020 at 11:32 am #1203565158
It’s exactly what they have : two leading oscars. Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Bergman are two oscars stars. Day Lewis is in the three oscar category.
Then what are the other 22 categories? Participation certificates? Best picture is the encore category?July 1, 2020 at 10:28 pm #1203562326
This is a considerably more conventional subject matter for Oscars compared to The Social Network or even Benjamin Button. I suspect this will have a The Departed moment where even if it’s not peak Fincher, there will be enough dues owed that it WILL get momentum. If this film gets fucked over, it’ll be Netflix’s fault not Fincher’s.
You better be right. This is the same group of idiots who thought Se7en + Fight Club + Gone Girl all deserved only 1 nomination each. We don’t even need to talk about the missing nominations from PGA + DGA + WGA nominee Girl with a Dragon Tattoo.July 1, 2020 at 3:15 pm #1203561585
I’m loving this GD energy of predicting Mank in every category but the Academy has always found a way to fuck over Fincher movies in nominations and wins, even more so than with Nolan, and I don’t want to have false hope.June 29, 2020 at 3:36 pm #1203557892
Not to mention it could even break into the major categories if this year’s field is weak enough, kind of like Arrival did in the extremely weak 2016 field.
2016 was anything but weak and Arrival got all it’s nominations deservingly and should’ve won way more Oscars than it actually did.June 24, 2020 at 4:31 pm #1203550655
Glenn and Amy better hope they lose SAG. All Ron Howard’s actors who won SAG ended up losing at the Oscars and it’s happened 3x.June 23, 2020 at 6:17 pm #1203548956
dont be salty cause you think white men are bad and this film is for incels
u obviously have not seen my post history cuz I’ve liked/defended a lot of the filmmakers that the stereotypical white men/casual film lovers tended to like and dragged GD for their best actress goggle obsessed taste.June 23, 2020 at 6:04 pm #1203548938
if you wanna talk masterpiece talk about joker which was a masterpiece well deserving of its 11 nominations
11 razzie nominations sure.June 23, 2020 at 3:09 pm #1203548551

Okay, so if the vast majority of the critics secretly hate Da 5 Bloods but pretend to love it because it’s topical, why wouldn’t awards voters do the exact same thing? It’s not like the issues it tackles will have vanished in the haze a year from now.
Critics are not award voters.
