lol. Bee is right though.
Not in the slightest. Why would a bunch of old white men NOT watch a film in black and white and 1.19:1 aspect ratio filmed using analog equipment that has been compared to the likes of Bergman and Godard? Yes, they probably won’t appreciate its experimental nature, but they’ll certainly watch it, not to mention, the newly anointed AMPAS members will eat that shit up like they do everything else from A24.
Dafoe is winning. Get mad and stay mad.November 5, 2019 at 11:14 am #1203167230
And just because I’m bored (won, nominated):
Negga: New York Film Critics Online, African-American Film Critics Association, Alliance of Women Film Journalists, Black Reel Awards, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival
Academy Awards, AACTA, BAFTA Rising Star Award, Critics’ Choice, Golden Globes, Gotham, Indie Spirit, London Film Critics Circle, Online Film Critics Society and regionals like Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Florida, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis and Washington D.C.
Can we move on now?November 5, 2019 at 11:04 am #1203167216
Also, if I’m remembering correctly, Negga was an early frontrunner after Loving premiered at Cannes. Her standing in the top 5 only faltered after SAG/BAFTA took a sharp left turn and nominated Blunt and Streep over her and Huppert.
You can be both sad that Amy missed out and happy that Negga got in. Streep was the real spoiler, here.November 5, 2019 at 10:53 am #1203167198
#10 Dafoe, THE LIGHTHOUSE (atrocious category fraud and will the AMPAS give him a 5th nom and 3rd in a row and not give him the Oscar? Because right now the race for the win seems Pitt V. Pacino)
Imagine thinking Dafoe is #10. He is easily fighting Pacino for #1.
Pitt, Hanks, Brown, Pesci, Hopkins and Waititi could NEVER.November 5, 2019 at 7:33 am #1203166896
The underdog they won’t see coming. The film is sweeping Audience Awards. Not counting TIFF, it is winning the same Audience Awards Green Book, Spotlight and Lion won. Jamie Foxx coming for that second Oscar, and Warner Bros about to OWN the 2020 Oscars .

The only person I’ll accept beating Dafoe is BrownNovember 4, 2019 at 11:56 am #1203165907
Darling, I thought she was fine and very natural but Awkwarfina outacted.
Shuzhen was the highlight for me, personally, but I will do anything to ensure Awkwafina’s nominationNovember 4, 2019 at 11:52 am #1203165902

Zhao coming for those critics prizesNovember 4, 2019 at 9:51 am #1203165616
Willem Dafoe strikes me as our annual Hong Chau or Jake Gyllenhaal and whatnot. I am sure that he gives a great performance and he will show up at the precursors as such, but I predict that he falls out at the last minute for a slight performance in a Best Picture contender that the precursors rightly ignored, namely Alan Alda in this case … So I have Sterling K. Brown winning.November 3, 2019 at 6:47 pm #1203164839
Original Song is not a sign of a film having support. Tons of films make it in there and nowhere else. And no one is expecting Us to be nominated in any above the line categories (or any categories for that matter) except for Lupita, and even then, I consider that a pipe dream.
Thank you! Neither are happening. I appreciate the effort on their end to prove me otherwise, but it’s just not happening for them
