Actually things are less silent for Lion than I thought they would be. It scored four Golden Globe noms, two SAG noms and six Critics' Choice Awards noms (including Best Picture).

Yeah, I guess so, but the buzz doesn't seem to be there. And let's see if it actually wins any of those.

It won't. The fact it actually got so many mentions is a triumph in itself, I think.

What a fantastic call, I must say. I knew LLL wouldn't win.

Post Re: Moonlight is going to win BP
I have to admit Moonlight not winning SAG did freak me out a bit. But Trump made things easy for it. Enough of the Academy knew that while it could give all the other awards for LLL, Best Picture had to go to Moonlight for them to save face.

You can't preach about being "diverse" and "open" and reject a film like Moonlight for LLL. It would be too much of a sting for the Academy.

If Trump had not won, LLL wins BP.

I think LLL lost for being white as much as Moonlight won for being black. It wasn't just BP that showed LLL's weakness as not getting a sound award and losing Editing to Hacksaw were red flags

I'm glad that La La Land won in its best areas; Score, Song, and Cinematography.

Stone was overdue an Oscar. Chazelle's win made up for Whiplash. I'm putting Best Picture out of my mind. It was all political. The best film did not win. End of.

Post Re: Moonlight is going to win BP
i mean sure there were some red flags but it won SIX Oscars man. That's the second most ever for a film to not win BP. Cabaret holds the record for 8 and that lost to The Godfather so its a bit understandable.

I fully think the Academy just felt it couldn't give it BP given the image it would create. All other awards are far less important.

Post Re: Moonlight is going to win BP
Given that four of the last 5 oscars have had a BP/BD split (though admittedly, Argo is a special case), it may just be that voters are far more open to the prospect. Gravity, The Revenant, and La La Land and far flashier and more "director" flicks than 12 years, Spotlight or Moonlight in any case.

The image it creates?? So having white people in your film is an automatic disqualification? I guess we solved racism!!

It was fear that got Moonlight the win. Fear that people would talk about #OscarsSoWhite again. When the Academy should have awarded Best Picture to La La Land and stuck by their decision that the best film won.

in current political and social times AND given that Hollywood is trying to champion itself as part of this "resisitance" by preaching diversity and openness, giving BP to a film like LLL (a film obsessed with "the way things used to be") over Moonlight (a film about the modern struggle of being treated differently by society) would have been a image battle for Hollywood.

its pretty obvious and if you don't see that you're probably a racist or an idiot or both.

la la land also ends by fantasizing about a happy ending that doesn't actually happen, while moonlight is about getting a second chance.
