Seems it could get a Best Picture nomination.

I wouldn't bet on it. It's missing SJW qualifiers.

That’s true, but it has a shot

I think if it grosses north of 175m at the box office, it's guaranteed a nomination.

No. It’s not important enough and it’s not a phenomenon.

Jesus. Every well-reviewed film doesn't need a thread in this forum, guys.

How can you tell that after one weekend?

Why would you think it's getting a best picture nomination after one weekend?

But to answer the question.

Because...

I'd also add blockbuster to well reviewed. You know what else is going to be well reviewed and a blockbuster? Infinity War. Think it's getting a best picture nomination?

Unless the story of the film develops some level of importance so over the next year, it's not getting a BP nom.

I blame this on Magnus. Ever since his BP whispering bullshit, everyone's giving it a try.

I'm not saying it will, I'm saying it could. I think it will be leggy, and it's a very well reviewed original film. It seems to me that if Get Out could get nominated, it wouldn't be far fetched for this to get a nomination. Infinity War isn't going to be nominated if the first two Avengers weren't.

I'll just leave this here and let you figure out why Get Out was nominated and why A Quiet Place won't be.

Are you trying to say it was only nominated Because of diversity? That helped maybe but I think it was also just a great movie.

Not sure that Jmart was trying to say that, but of course it was! Only delusional people think Get Out was actually nominated on merit. Peele winning Best Screenplay is kind of proof of that.

Post subject:  Re: A Quiet Place

It was nominated because it was both. It it was coming off oscarssowhite, Trump, etc. and it also happened to be good (my opinion) or great (in most people's opinion - though it is kind of funny that villains in Get Out might feel right at home in the Oscar audience). It was a perfect storm. A Quiet Place doesn't and won't have that. Now to be fair to AQP, I haven't seen it, but Blunt's character apparently becomes a badass and that could work in a post Weinstein environment, but films, and horror films especially have done that before and I don't think it'll create the same groundswell of support GO had.

Fortunately, not perfect enough.

If he actually had predicted it right last year, his streak maybe would have gotten some recognition outside of this forum, and brought in some new members. Alas.

At most I could see an Original Screenplay nomination, and that's a long-shot.

Get Out only got in because of the hate whitey narrative the media and academia have been pushing. That film is basically racial resentment porn.

A Quiet Place is smart play on a gimmick, from the marketing standpoint. Great entertainment value, but not enough to contend for something more substantial. (I have yet to see it, so maybe it may surprise me.)

Comparison to Get Out may be unfair. Get Out is classical Hollywood storytelling. It has an original concept and a full-fledged story.

Original? Society already told that story. Get Out just added a racial angle.

It got a PGA nom! Still a long shot but the field is pretty soft this year so if ever there was a chance...

This has been completely forgotten. Not just by the Academy but everyone in America.
