The Farewell or JoJo arent getting nominated.

Irishman is probably the front runner right now. Huge names attached, strong critical reception, and the anti-Netflix movement I think is less this year than it was last. The only movie I see it losing to is Just Mercy.

I get the impression Irishman is film critics appreciate more than it is fun to watch, especially at 3.5 hours long. I have heard it compared to Silence but a gangster film.

I'm warming up to chance of Marriage Story win. The more I read of it the more it seems like Baumbach was willing to bend the knee and have some traditional Oscar bait moments, Laura Dern giving a speech about how women are mistreated in society, etc. compared to some of his icier and uncompromising movies.

Edit - Now that I read more I'm thinking Marriage Story will fail. I heard everyone in it is a bad person.

I take back the farewell comment. I could see a inclusion movement to get it a nod.

Post Re: Best Picture 2020
Early reactions to 1917 are glowing. We have a major contender here.

Favourites for BP at the moment...

Once Upon A Time... in Hollywood
The Irishman
Marriage Story
1917
Parasite
Ford V Ferrari

Others with a chance

Bombshell
Richard Jewel
The Farewell
A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood

I think Once has a better shot than Irishman to be honest.

Joker is probably getting a nod and frankly It probably actually should be considered the front runner we just can’t see it.

Outside Endgame it was the most discussed movie of the year and it was the first film since Get Out that mattered in pop culture beyond just entertainment. There was genuine discourse on the film that can’t be denied.

Little Women has 98% on RT.

At this point, I see the nominees being:

- Ford V Ferrari
- Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
- 1917
- Little Women
- The Irishman
- Marriage Story
- Parasite
- Jojo Rabbit

Joker was never in if you ask me though I do think a lot of people will be disappointed when its not nominated for BP. I think Endgame might have a better chance to sneak in than Joker just to give Marvel some sort of recognition.

Joker has a better chance than Endgame imo. It's not out, let's see how Golden Globes goes.

It won the Toronto audience award over Marriage Story and Parasite. Not saying that's a huge precursor but all of the recent films that won that went on to a BP nomination.

The movie that wins Best Actor usually gets a picture nomination. Crazy Heart is the only one that hasn't since the expansion in 2009. Not sure which one of the eight Barabas listed would fall out though.

I think it would be funny if Joker got nominated and Endgame didn't.

Hopefully neither gets nominated but Endgame is a better film regardless.

Well Endgame has no chance. It came out way too long ago. Oscar voters are all about celebrating movies they’ve seen over the past week.

Joker is a top 5 contender. It's getting in. The fact that we're even debating it is silly imo. The only group of people who really didn't like it were the critics after it premiered in Berlin. And Phillips (who is a legit Best Director candidate) will not be one to shy away from sucking up to the Academy.

That's the only precursor to use. It pretty much has failed in every other category for one to think it will get a BP nod. Sure, it'll probably get in at GG cause of the comedy category but Oscars is not happening.

I believe it's a close race between JoJo and Two Popes for what appeals to Green Book voters the most

The fact that Irishman already has backlash I think won’t bode well. I think it’s going to win most of the critics award which elevate its front runner status and then the backlash will erupt. Twitter mob won’t want a all male, all white film winning.

Irishman being the early front runner will backfire (like for most front runners of late). Plus any remaining Netflix stigma or manufactured outrage will only further hurt it.

With QT looking good for BD - there is a solid chance OUATIH gets both BP and BD (but at least BD).
