Post What likely Oscar contender are you most dreading watching?
Every year there are one or two awards season films I'm really not interested in but will watch because I try and see all of the films. I will say sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised by them, so there is that. But as of now I'm dreading Darkest Hour. I think it looks like such a bore. Every time I see the trailer at the theater I find myself tuning it out. Phantom Thread WAS another one based on one viewing of the trailer. However I saw the trailer again in front of Lady Bird and thought it looked more interesting. I'm still not excited for it but am not dreading it like I was initially.

What is everyone else's? I can already see most saying Call Me By Your Name. I know that will be Algren's :P.

Great thread, and you're wrong about mine. I dread watching Lady Bird, The Post, The Florida Project and The Shape of Water.

Phantom Thread. Trailer makes me think the first yawn will already come during the company logo.

I don't even plan on watching Phantom Thread, so did not include it.

Yeah, I'd say most Oscar contenders are usually not appealing to me, that I put off on watching them far past their release, years later often.

Of those I haven't seen, maybe Hostiles?

Do you think that's even going to be one?

Thank you. And I'm really shocked.

Seems like an off-key answer, why?
Also is there really any chance it's a contender?

Well, it's definitely going to be an Oscar contender. Not necessarily BEST PICTURE, but it will feature in the awards somewhere.

Interesting, I thought it more of an comedy-indie project, that might get some of a cult-following as well and not a huge film in any regard.

Franco has a great shot at being nominated.

I just can't imagine someone being interested if they haven't seen The Room. It would be much funnier if you had.

It does fulfill the Oscar "industry self love" requirement.

Like what others said, James Franco's performance is getting some recognition in the awards circuit.

OK, and why are you most dreading to watching it?

I find generally dread watching a comedy the least (well if its at least half decent budgeted).
Did you think The Room was crap and you don't want to be reminded of it?

yeah Phantom Thread is the trickiest one. The talent involved is immense but the trailer really isn't that appealing.
