If it’s ineligible it won’t be on the published list eligible contenders. If an Academy member tried to vote for it (assuming that’ll even be physically possible with online voting) their vote would be disregarded.
Withholding it for a whole year would be preferable. It would be beyond disrespectful for Warner Bros to dump what is reportedly Nolan’s most cinematic work yet straight to VOD. People want to see this in theaters, whether now or later.
My only concern with Davis is that she is not a singer; in fact, by her own admission, she will never complete an EGOT because she ‘can’t sing’. (She could win for spoken word I suppose.) I haven’t seen or read the play so I’m not sure how much actual singing is involved in the role as written; nevertheless, I haven’t found any confirmation so…[Read more]

A solid and justified verdict on this thread.

The Shape of Water
Son of Saul
12 Years a Slave
The Lives of Others
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
I still haven’t seen most of the international feature winners of the 00s, so I’ve just listed the times where I’ve seen both. Unsurprisingly, the foreign films win out in my book.
Eddy Q replied to the topic Which foreign language film will be the next Parasite in the 2021 Oscar race? in the forum Movies 2 weeks, 3 days ago
I’m not convinced that holding Portrait over to 2020 would have done it much favour either. While people are preoccupied with covid-19 and its effect on upcoming releases and the future of the industry, Neon would’ve had a job on its hands to get voters to remember a foreign-language film that premiered at Cannes over a year ago. And who’s to…[Read more]
Some great mentions so far. My own is End of the Century, a recent Argentine film set in Barcelona, touching on themes of memory and the relationship between past and present.
Btw, what were all these banned comments about? I missed all of that but can’t help being morbidly curious.

If Neon and Lionsgate had decided to save Ammonite for next season they likely would have withdrawn it from the official Cannes lineup before it was announced in early June.
Barton Fink should’ve been the double supporting actor nominee for 1991, not Bugsy.
One that’s always mystified me is Jack Kruschen over Fred MacMurray in The Apartment, though it did occur to me MacMurray may have been pushed lead as stars often did back then no matter what. Kruschen was still great so I’m not too fussed.
Those predicting a lead campaign for Lindo may have a point. With Da 5 Bloods being an ensemble film with several noteworthy performances, it could look like bad manners to push Lindo as supporting at the expense of his co-stars, particularly Clarke Peters and Jonathan Majors (though it’s hard to tell at this stage if they would gain any traction…[Read more]
