Wow, I just saw the trailer for The Father. It looks like a tour de force of acting and filmmaking. There’s some great shots/scenes in the trailer alone. I think it has the potential to have some long legs this Oscar season.

Even though Nomadland won the Golden Lion at Venice, I have a hunch One Night in Miami will take the People’s Choice at Toronto. To me it seems like the more accessible, crowd-pleasing film, a la Green Book or Jojo Rabbit.

My Golden Lion prediction is Nomadland. It seems to have garnered the strongest across-the-board critic reviews out of Venice.

Is anyone else predicting nominations for Stillwater? I have it in Best Picture, Actor (Damon), Supporting Actress (Breslin), Original Screenplay, and possibly Director (Tom McCarthy of Spotlight). I know we know little about it, but given the subject matter and the star power involved – and if it even releases this year – I feel it has the potential to be a strong contender.

As far as I know, the screenplay for One Night In Miami should be in Adapted. It’s based on a stage play of the same name.

This looks quite solid, although I do believe The French Dispatch will be a strong contender in multiple categories this year…

The Oscar predictions center event should be opening up Tuesday morning.
Very excited! It’s been quite a few months since I’ve been back. Currently, I’m predicting it’ll be Netflix’s year with Mank taking home Best Picture.

Although I understand the reasoning behind it, personally I’m disappointed by the merger of the sound categories. The Oscars is about awarding the craft of movie making. The general public doesn’t understand the difference between the two categories (and frankly, some Academy members), but it is quite a big one – and both require different skillsets. It’s going to be a much tougher fight with a lone sound category now….

Thoughts on Green Book: Personally, I loved it. It’s a fun film, and I had an absolute blast seeing it in the cinema in 2018. I personally don’t think it deserves the hate it garners at all. In regards to Roma, even though it was a visually stunning film, I thought the plot was paper thin. It took me a few tries to get through it.
I know I’m in the minority, but in the weak year that was 2018 cinema, Green Book more than deserved the win.

Just saw the
Parasite AwardsGD Awards winners now and I only have two words:
A Parasite sweep? Come on. We’re taking about the best films in the last decade, and the love should be spread. Well, I guess I should have known this would happen by the nominations….

Wow, overall very disappointing nominations, in my opinion. The recency bias is strong. Did everyone forget the amazing movies such as The King’s Speech, The Artist, The Big Short, Brooklyn, Captain Phillips, Lion, Les Misérables, and The Help, just to name a few?
I’m happy La La Land made a strong showing. That’ll be my pick for Best Picture of the decade….

I hope there’s not too much recency bias….
I fear this as well. Most of the films I’ve nominated are from the early 2010s. I hope they don’t get drowned out by later releases….
