There is a strong case for it, yes. But before Scorsese unveils Silence, I am not down with any winner.

There will be plenty more black people to vote this year, so it could.

not even Marty can make a great film that that shitty book.

but for real, outside of the fact that the film is amazing, it's a movie focused on a GAY BLACK MAN. The outrage that will happen if they ignore this over a musical with white people singing and dancing would be too much for the Academy to handle.


There will still be enough voters not voting for the film precisely because it is about a gay black man.

Also, do not dare do doubt Marty.

Nope, too niche of a subject matter and of a film. The majority of Academy members won't even watch it.

Jackie is the one to look out for.

The hype for Moonlight is rebarbative - I have no plans to see it.

Don't forget that there are loads of new blacks, gays, and weirdos added to the Academy this year. But I agree, it is definitely not winning Best Picture.

I loved Moonlight but I don't see it happening. It's a bit too...subtle.

For all intensive purposes, this still has La La Land's name all over it.

Tempting but I think if they go all in on the black actor wins they can justify their white La La Land win

Doubtful. Like has been said plenty of the Academy won't watch it. I almost feel like more white Academy members will watch it than African American Academy members. Homophobia is very rampant in the African American community. Even going on the Facebook page for the film there are plenty of complaints. And yet I still feel many white Academy members won't watch it either. I do think it will get a good number of nominations though and will probably win something. But most likely not the big prize.

It's a great movie and it may well finish the year at #1 on my personal list, but it's not winning Best Picture. It's way too small, low-key, etc. If they didn't go for Boyhood with a much stronger awards narrative (even though the media has pushed the Oscars So White angle hard, I think the fact that it happened two years in a row indicates that the mostly old, white Academy just doesn't care, so I don't see that angle playing into Moonlight's narrative significantly enough to move the dial), they won't go for Moonlight.

You did well with Spotlight last year, but you're gonna be wrong, bro.

Moonlight could very well win SAG Ensemble, but Best Picture won't happen. I feel like if there's somehow a spoiler to La La Land, it would be Manchester.

The top 3 are def La La Land, Manchester and Moonlight though.

If La La Land doesn't win Best Picture, that will be an upset.

Funny how things are silent for Loving, 20th Century Women, and Lion.

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.
