I think Bong is winning Director. Picture I think will be Parasite v Irishman v OUATIH.

There is a high chance of this.

I think it is the 2nd most likely winner right now after OUATIH. But I’m still picking OUATIH.

Personally I feel Irishman and Parasite both have better chance to win that OUAITH. I believe QT has a higher chance at BD than OUATIH for BP.

I’m not really feeling Irishman BP. It was always going to be critics friendly instead of awards, ultimately it’s still a 3.5 hour movie about bad people that’s much less enjoyable to watch than OUATIH. Spielberg losing for Lincoln also showed that it’s hard to win Picture again because you are compared against yourself. OUATIH is basically in the same position as the Departed, both films are not considered the director’s best but are still excellent and damn entertaining, and that should be enough to get one of the best directors of all time his win.

Parasite is a major threat but it’s still foreign language movie at the end of the day... I’m not surprised it got in SAG Ensemble as it’s an ensemble film that’s top 5 in BP, and SAG is relatively woke, they have been at the front lines of black nominees and wins. This is also the second year in a row a movie with asian actors got in there. I understand the logic why a film with its themes might win, but I also think Hollywood has a lot going for it as they like movies about themselves and the Tarantino factor

Magnus has a point. That way the Academy makes up for previous low representations of Asians at the awards and it undermines any criticism of a possible low representation of blacks this year (not saying African Americans as Erivo is not American, although if Theron wins it will be an African American win), and it will give the Academy one year of rest to prepare the 2021 awards where it's either the Samoans or the Eskimos turn.

I’ve been thinking this since I saw the movie. I think it can win. (but would kind of like it to keep its “underdog” position while people realize Once Upon A Time and Irishman aren’t that good)

If Roma didn't win I don't see this winning. But Director has a high chance.

This will get Foreign or whatever its called now.

I still think most voters believe that is enough for it.

Parasite is more entertaining/crowd-pleasing than Roma.

Nevertheless, the IFF category will be its biggest obstacle to overcome in winning BP.

It'd have to get voters past that mentality that they can just reward it in the consolation category.

Everyone really loves Parasite though.

I haven't seen it yet because it still hasn't opened here but I'd be happy for it.

If I were in charge of the Korean film body that submits films to the Academy for Foreign Language Picture, I would not submit Parasite. If it doesn't get nominated there it could stand a chance at actually winning Best Picture.

Post subject:  Re: Parasite Will Win Best Picture

Yeah, this is winning best picture.

It won't win if they submit it to foreign film which would be a mistake

It's already been submitted.

I think that this is much more likely to happen than if the Oscars hadn't switched over to Ranked Choice Voting.

I do think that 1917 could still knock everyone's socks off like The Revenant did, but I think that this has a better shot than Irishman or Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Post subject:  Re: Parasite Will Win Best Picture

It's the clear favorite right now. Everybody really likes the movie and it will be super woke to give it to a foreign language picture for the first time. I just hope Quinten wins director.

Magnus is right once again. Damn this bitch.

Post subject:  Re: Parasite Will Win Best Picture

I will be so mad if they pull the shit they did to Roma last year. if they just award Parasite best foreign and snub it for Best Picture.

Author:  Jack Sparrow [ Mon Jan 06, 2020 1:19 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Parasite Will Win Best Picture

That looks very likely. They won't award Parasite for BP because it will surely get Foreign category. I am yet to see 1917 so I really can't comment for that movie but Parasite is SO MUCH better than the rest we have this year.

It’s happening.

I heard KG gave Bong his black opal. This may win after all.

This is still happening. Parasite will pull a Spotlight.

PARASITE. IS. WINNING. BEST. PICTURE.

Author:  publicenemy#1 [ Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:27 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Parasite Will Win Best Picture

Parasite should've gotten acting noms like Roma did... but yeah, winning SAG is a big deal. It's gonna be this or 1917.
