I can only see a January 31st UK release date. That will make it ineligible?
BAFTA has different rules where you qualify as long as you release by a certain time in February – I think. It’s always been super vague to me, especially as Parasite isn’t getting released until after the BAFTA ceremony but apparently is still qualifying. BAFTA members attend screenings and are sent screeners of everything relevant, but every year the nominees include stuff that virtually no one else in the country has been able to see. But to answer your question, yes Richard Jewell should be eligible.December 13, 2019 at 3:53 pm #1203235346
Let’s not act like it will affect Renée and by the same occasion help Woodard, lol!
No one said that.December 13, 2019 at 3:40 pm #1203235327
Context goes with the same people you listed earlier. Franco got snubbed because of the sexual assault claims… PEOPLE
Nope, he would’ve missed out anyway. It’s easily observable based on the nominees, though I’ve been through that too many times in other threads.December 12, 2019 at 2:51 pm #1203234160
As am I. It’s a mess
Speaking as a fellow Brit, I always think regional UK accents seem trickier than American ones, no matter where you’re from. He tried, and it wasn’t all bad, though I actually didn’t think about Ken Miles being Brummie until reading about it afterwards, and I’m originally from near there! Maybe I was just being thick.December 12, 2019 at 2:43 pm #1203234138
It’s actually better title and also film has very less Ferrari.
Both titles are pretty shitty but I agree Ford v. Ferrari is a rather misleading title for the real subject of the film. But Le Mans 66 is like calling a movie about when England won the World Cup FIFA 66 – it sounds like a title for a video game.December 12, 2019 at 6:16 am #1203233423
I’m surprised noone has mentioned the sexual assault allegation against him back in October. I think that is indeed the main reason Hollywood is starting to turn their back on him like James Franco.
The story doesn’t seem to have gained much traction though, so I doubt that was the reason.December 12, 2019 at 5:58 am #1203233390
Two blacks aren’t going to be nominated.
Why not? There were two black lead actress nominees in frigging 1972, why not now? Sure it hasn’t happened since but I’d argue there hasn’t an obvious opportunity to nominate two black female leads in the same year (which has nothing to do with whether or not they were deserving). SAG has never had dual black Best Actress nominees before now and yet here we are.December 12, 2019 at 5:47 am #1203233382
No, she’s obviously not a national treasure. You have to BE white for that. Naomi Campbell for example has always outshined Kate Moss, she even reached heights that Kate will never, yet they consider Kate more like a British treasure than Naomi, anyways.
That being said, Erivo won that irrelevant BAFTA last year, therefore they are aware of her.
Listen I really don’t want Erivo to happen, but y’all should stop being that delusional… Everyone can it coming, she’s getting in before Lupita. Lupita has won those critics awards but it’s Erivo that has always been considered as an Oscar contender since the beginning of the year. My Goodness! Get real Jans!
I didn’t actually say Erivo wasn’t getting in, which you’d know if you read more carefully.
Edit: Erivo didn’t actually win “that irrelevant BAFTA” last year, she lost to Leticia Wright.December 12, 2019 at 5:18 am #1203233343
I have a feeling Alan Alda is going to coattail his way into the fifth spot, just like Jacki Weaver in 2013.
The reason why I don’t quite see that happening is that Marriage Story, despite being a likely top 5 Best Picture contender, lacks the overwhelming popularity of a Silver Linings Playbook to easily scoop Alda along, as evidenced by its SAG Cast snub. Another thing is Weaver, despite not having a huge amount of dialogue, was present throughout a lot of her film whereas Alda, not so much. I think it’ll just be the locked three for actors in Marriage Story, though I won’t rule out an Alda nom entirely.December 11, 2019 at 3:14 pm #1203232410
Uncut Gems overperformed with the critics
but I’m glad that Sandler won’t happen
You’ve been dissing Sandler a lot so I’m just wondering, is this due to this particular performance or just because he’s Adam Sandler? Because I keep reading Uncut Gems has the best acting he’s ever done, better than Punch-Drunk Love, though I haven’t seen it yet.
