Two Distant Strangers is rather odious but some people love it. It is likely to be enough given the connections its backers have with the Academy.
Feeling Through has the advantage of it winning a suite of audience awards at festivals.
I think Two Distant Strangers wins but I’m less confident than I was after speaking with the small pool of voters I know.April 13, 2021 at 9:30 am #1204198071

Kinda dumb doing this thing before voting has even started.April 3, 2021 at 9:27 am #1204173498
Its only danger was missing the nomination. Once it got in, it had its eight tentacles on the statue.April 2, 2021 at 6:13 am #1204170508
If some of the results have in fact leaked, none of those in the know are taking advantage of it.

I knew from the start that it was going to be a Best Picture nominee. I never bought the ‘no buzz’ nonsense. We wouldn’t be talking about it right now if that was remotely true.
Spike’s hissy fit after Green Book won will come back to bite him. Can easily see many Oscars voters snubbing the rather lame D5B.January 19, 2021 at 7:41 am #1203991051

This is winning Orig Screenplay. It won’t even be close.January 1, 2021 at 12:23 pm #1203956747
Nomadland is very good but it doesn’t scream Best Pic.
I’ve got Chicago 7 in top sport but on a preferential ballot I think Soul might end up taking the statue.December 31, 2020 at 3:05 am #1203954430
Hard to pick a winner here and is likely to be the case until the night, unless Day blows them away.
Hopefully she doesn’t and we have a genuine four, or even five-cornered contest in an acting race. The acting categories have all had worthy winners but when was the last time that more than two were in real contention come Oscar night?
I think you have to go back to 2008 when supporting actress was Swinton, Blanchett, Dee, Ryan and Ronan. All had a chance that night.
I’ll say, for now, that Mulligan is my pick. She’d never win with the Academy on a preferential ballot but there’s going to be a lot of passion and she might only need to jag 30 per cent of the vote to win if McDormand, Davis, Kirby and Day each have a solid support base.
