I do wonder with the Oscars being pushed all the way back to April 25, 2021, if the winners will be less predictable than before now that movies that gain traction and seem unstoppable once they start winning a bunch of awards can lose steam with the longer period and fatigue can set in, or if early frontrunners who receive backlash and then lose awards can gain momentum back.

I'm starting to get excited about the prospect of Maria Bakalova getting close to an Oscar nomination for playing Borat's daughter and having that bedroom scene with Giuliani.

Also, you should check out The Forty-Year-Old Version trailer:

Do you not have availability to any streaming services like Netflix? At least some of the films likely to be nominated for major awards are or should be soon available on such platforms.

Theoretically yes but in the past I had so much difficulty with my cable (too many disconnects) that I am afraid to go to Netflix on line. I can’t risk.osi g myth channels. I may have to call the cable provider to get help.

I can’t delete this post. Too late but the iPad has been butchering my words. I can’t risk losing my channels after watching a movie on cable. It is rather painful to try to get help from the cable company. There have been fewer issues in my new home so I may just call them once to find out how to do this safely.

Really speaking, I love watching movies in theaters. I just don’t enjoy them much on a small screen.

I never heard this title. I think Gold derby tends to list just about everyone at first. As we get closer to the awards they trim down. I like to see their odds in each category and they list just three in each.

You may not like this tweet:


Also, apparently Hillbilly Elegy is playing better to Oscar voters than it did with the critics and Twitter film fans. Let's see what that means.

Btw, I didn't realize Wild Mountain Thyme is based on Shanley's Broadway play Outside Mullingar where Debra Messing played the the lead female role.

I hope it means that W&M will finally have an Oscar-winning actor among its alums (no offense to any of the possible Best Supporting Actress nominees).

I just saw Promising Young Woman. It’s not perfect and some of the writing/direction in the first half I felt could have been better or more natural, but that second half. OMG. I can see Mulligan pulling off a win here if only the men of the Academy would dare reward a film like this.

Personally I actually enjoyed the writing of PYW the most. I really liked the fun/dark material mix.
It was a bit too close to Kill Bill in some sort for my taste, but overall this movie came as a total surprise to me.

I liked Mulligan a lot, same with Bo Burnham as supporting.

I saw First Cow and it’s like most of Reichardt’s films, small and slow. I like that, but think a lot of people who aren’t familiar with Reichardt and are more interested in watching because of the Oscar buzz may find it “boring”. If you didn’t enjoy Old Joy, you probably won’t enjoy First Cow.

I really appreciated how it eschewed the tropes of most frontier stories/movies. Having the leads be more sweet and gentle men in a hash environment and time, for example. It’s almost a really well done ambiance video to reduce anxiety, and I mean that in the best way.

After seeing 'Another Round' I am rooting damn hard for Mads Mikkelsen. (Riz Ahmed remains my personal frontrunner, no discussion).

I really have a thing for the danish submissions, 'Land of mine' was one of my absolute foreign languages movies ever. I guess Another Round will be pretty safe for the short list at least. It has one of my fav movie scenes of this awards season so far. So well shot.

Have seen 'Pieces of a Woman'.

I already loved Vanessa Kirby in 'The Crown' and really liked her in here. Not sure about 'Best actress' race. She has some great showy scenes, but in the mid-part (of the movie), the acting does not really get met.
Ellen Burstyn is an absolute killer in her speech scene. I like the traditional 'supporting' layout here.
Don't know/get why Shia LaBeouf gets not much love by critics. I really liked him in this movie. Great fragile/broken portrait.

The screenplay lacks for me mid-part a lot. Not sure if they cut something from the play to make it shorter. But something is missing here for me.

The birth scene will remain amongst my Top10 'most memorable scenes' of thise season, no discussion.

To me parts of the movie just felt like trying too hard.
The metaphorics (especially with the bridge) are too much.

The red/teary eyes in final court scene seemed so staged/faked, I was totally distracted.

I loved the opening birthing scene of the movie. I really disliked everything else. Shia was way too convincing in his more violent scenes which made me think of his abuse allegations in real life. I really liked Molly Parker who played the midwife. I was confused to as hold old Burstyn was supposed to be in this movie and how old her daughters were supposed to be.

At eight tonight, CW is airing a fun awards show called Critics Choice Super Awards. From my local TV listings: "An award for films that include superheroes, animation, action, fantasy or horror."

After seeing 'Another Round' I am rooting damn hard for Mads Mikkelsen. (Riz Ahmed remains my personal frontrunner, no discussion).

I really have a thing for the danish submissions, 'Land of mine' was one of my absolute foreign languages movies ever. I guess Another Round will be pretty safe for the short list at least. It has one of my fav movie scenes of this awards season so far. So well shot.

Land of Mine was the best movie I saw last year. Absolutley incredible. Here's the trailer for it:
