There’s no reason for A24 to push Midsommar, horror movies always do great with DVD/streaming, getting awards won’t give it that much boost. Add to that all kinds of biases Midsommar would face with awards voters. I don’t think a FYC campaign would be a good investment.October 10, 2019 at 11:46 am #1203130969
Overrated by the internet/Nolan fanboy community.
Underrated by critics and journalists.
IMO, it’s a good and entertaining flick and has some really interesting themes in it, but it feels a bit cold and clinical, like most of Nolan’s movies do.October 9, 2019 at 2:46 pm #1203129900
Me when Hitting the Fan, the greatest TV episode of all time, again gets ignored for some random Game of Thrones shiteOctober 2, 2019 at 1:51 pm #1203117916
Let’s be honest, all Smith needs to do to win the Oscar is actually show up at one of the precursors.
She won’t tho, because she doesn’t give a flying fuckSeptember 20, 2019 at 3:28 pm #1203089669
(FYI for some users by the way: I’m [semi] kidding)
Can’t really see Van Houten happening, but hey, the Oscar season is dark and full of terrors, so who knowsSeptember 20, 2019 at 1:05 pm #1203089236

Gosh, how is this category so weak this year, Zellweger is actually going to win this by default.
Surely there must be some random european veteran who can come in and snatch it?September 20, 2019 at 1:48 am #1203088197
Pretty sure a lot of people will fistpump when Jennifer Lopez gets snubbedSeptember 20, 2019 at 1:44 am #1203088193
Having just seen Parasite, I have to say it’s a bit weird Yeo-jeong Jo isn’t contending. Such a lovely comedic performance. And such a likable character.September 1, 2019 at 12:55 pm #1203052244
The influence of the critics is much bigger than before, so it doesn’t happen as often nowadays.
For something like that to happen, you basically need
– a universally beloved/respected actress
– in a weak year
– in an academy friendly film
Having said that, The Laundromat seems divisive enough (although it won’t be rotten), but Meryl isn’t missing out, regardless whether she is lead or supporting.September 1, 2019 at 12:48 pm #1203052233
I almost got excited, but then I saw the words “Lucas Hedges”August 30, 2019 at 9:58 am #1203048971
Ok, this was a pleasant surprise, looks awesome. More Golden Globe-friendly than Oscar-friendly tho.August 27, 2019 at 7:53 am #1203042621
This thread is one of the reasons I, personally, hate GoldDerby. People on here will always look at actors’ awards chances on everything else going for them but the performance. Linney was outstanding in that and she got in because she had the PERFORMANCE and that was enough, as it always must be. Jolie is always, always mediocre.
Sorry, but that’s very naive. I’m a big fan of Laura Linney and I glad she got nominated. Hell, I think she deserved nods for Love, Actually and Mystic River and deserved to win for You Can Count on Me. However, I don’t delude into thinking that my opinion and taste matters much (like so many people here).
