I found two that weren’t submitted by their country, the only one that was nominated in foreign film and didn’t win was the emigrants, but it was nominated in best picture the year after it lost foreign film
Babel and Letters from Iwo Jima?
also I find it funny how some sites don’t count Inglourious Basterds as a foreign language film when 70% of the dialogue is not in English. (even the globes goofed and nominated it everywhere).
yes I know it’s an American co-production but so was the Farewell lol.January 20, 2020 at 10:12 am #1203295032
I think Fincher should be frontrunner for BD at this point. Mank is a true story, it’s about Hollywood and it’s in BLACK AND WHITE! If it’s good, Netflix is going to push it like crazy and the Academy is going to eat it up. It could also be seen as a make up win for The Social Network.
if anything this 2019 taught us, it’s that making films about Hollywood isn’t good enough anymore, it needs to be something exceptional.January 19, 2020 at 10:14 pm #1203294260
Ford v Ferrari beats 1917 for the main MPSE prize (Sound editing guild)
could it it upset at the Oscar? or will 1917 pull a dunkirk and win both?January 19, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203292554
I think the reason why there has been so much disparity lately between BAFTA and best picture Oscar is more because of the preferential ballot than the brits being biased to their own movies.
they just have different voting systems. Roma for example didn’t do well with preferential but still beat out the Favorite in a normal vote.
so what the PGA win for 1917 tells us is that it’s the type of film that would do well in a preferential ballot (albeit only from producers for now), but not necessarily will do as well with a regular voting system. which is why I think either 1917 wins the Oscar but loses the BAFTA or wins the BAFTA and loses the Oscar.
of course I could be wrong but I hope that stat since 2013 doesn’t break and BAFTA and Oscar keep rewarding different films.January 19, 2020 at 9:50 am #1203292312
To me, BAFTA seems like the easiest award for 1917 to win. I’m interested to know why you think it will not take this one. What do you think will win instead?
don’t have answers to what could upset but Gravity (While also being a british film and being a survival showy drama like 1917) still failed to win the BAFTA.January 18, 2020 at 6:56 pm #1203291382
They have started with the first 3 awards: Sesame Street for Children’s Program; Muhammed Ali for Sports Program; and Comedians in Cars Drinking Coffee for Best Short Form Program… I am sure the movie awards will be at the end of a long evening!
what time do they announce the last prize?January 17, 2020 at 6:26 am #1203288920
picturing a scenario where Parasite wins the PGA but still fails to get best picture because voters will be reluctant to award it 2 best picture awards in the same year (cus it will already win foreign)January 11, 2020 at 12:17 am #1203275042
for starters, since 1981 no best picture winner missed an editing nomination (with the exception of Birdman cus it was made to look like one take). So Parasite will have to secure that nomination first and it already missed it on the BAFTA.January 7, 2020 at 1:04 am #1203267664
