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.

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.

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.

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

Post Re: Best Picture 2020
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).

Joker is performing very well in big time awards and seems to have the support of the SGA. It is getting nominated for sure.

Little Women's ommission so far is interesting, especially since Gerwig seems like the only viable female director nom. If she doesn't get nominated for DGA then it's probably done.

Likely lineup is:
1917
The Irishmen
Jojo Rabbit
Joker
Marriage Story
Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood
Parasite

And then 1-2 of the following:
Knives Out
Ford v Ferrari
Little Women
Bombshell

Yeah - its a bumper crop.

Looking back at the last decade, the nominees for each year are actually damn good. It's the winners that leave a lot to be desired.

Predictions before the rest of the guilds release:

1917
The Irishman
Joker
Knives Out
Little Women
Marriage Story
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Parasite

Jojo gets snubbed ( :( ) as does Bombshell and Les Mans 66. If there is a ninth nominee then Jojo is back in. Avengers Endgame is the real Best Picture and will miss here because of stupid Joker, but get some random big tech nomination that we wouldn't have expected like Editing.

We are now down to 3 real contenders - Hollywood, Parasite and 1917.

And whichever wins BP - we’ll get a Different film winning BD.

This is gonna be a year where audiences will have actually seen the nominated films, with 2 being on Netflix, and 1917, Joker, Knives Out and Little Women likely all crossing 100m domestic. Only Parasite and Jojo Rabbit look to maybe be nominated without being much seen,
