ecstatic for minari’s reception, but I’ve learned not to get my hopes up too high, or have any hopes at all for certain movies
Especially when it comes to A24 films.. though this year seems a little more optimistic for them with Jennifer Lawrence and Joaquin Phoenix rounding out their slate of films and Minari riding Parasite’s inevitable Best Picture snub straight to the Oscars in 2021January 27, 2020 at 9:53 am #1203314550

Uncut Gems made $525,498 from 5 screens while Bombshell did $312,100.December 15, 2019 at 10:05 am #1203238303
This thread is so disrespectfulDecember 14, 2019 at 11:54 am #1203236126
really spot on winners, except for Trashdam Trashler
“The Sadfie Brothers’ Uncut Gems, a powerhouse thriller starring Adam Sandler in the best dramatic performance of his career, earned a whopping $210,000 in five theaters on Friday, setting the stage for a $560,000 weekend and ridiculous $112,000 per-theater average. If that holds, it’ll be the 12th-biggest per-theater average ever (counting Red State’s roadshow tour in 2010), the biggest in A24’s history and the second-biggest of the year behind Neon’s Parasite.”

Coming out of hiding to just reiterate that Sandler and Uncut Gems are not to be underestimated this season like I’ve been saying since before TIFF. They may just be Ethan Hawke/First Reformed 2.0, but they deserve the praise and with the way these New York publications have been gushing about the film, I could see one or the other showing up come 10AM EST tomorrow.November 6, 2019 at 10:15 am #1203168595
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 .
“Des Moines International African American Film Festival Audience Award Winner”
