Re: Reactions

Alfonso Cuaron is the first four-time nominee since the Coen Brothers in 2007. We have four possible repeat winners from last year: Jordan Peele, Sam Rockwell, Alexandre Desplat, and Paul Lambert. This is Scott Rudin's first nomination outside of Best Picture. Steven Spielberg extends his all-time r...

7th. I'm assuming you forgot about Bridge of Spies!

Their 15th overall nomination, though. Not too shabby.

Re: Reactions

Like many, I thought Paul Schrader's at-last nod was a good omen for Ethan Hawke, but the branches seemed unusually independent of one another this year. (Still weird for the most widely-acclaimed lead performance to be omitted. Sally Hawkins was only a top-tier critics' choice; Hawke won damn near...

Re: Reactions

Netflix had quite a day, not only with ROMA but with the over-performing Buster Scruggs too! That documentary category is crazy, and I've only seen 2, but from what I understand, much more solid than usual. We could see a shift in that category to a different type of documentary doing well. Also, th...

Re: Final Nominations Predictions

Anyone else feel like The Favourite kind of messed up their placement this year. With that fifth slot open, it seems like Weisz and Stone could have both picked up Lead Actress nominations, while Colman would be our frontrunner in Supporting Actress hands down.

In a similar vein, could Jonathan Pryce be this year's Maggie Gyllenhaal?

I thought so... but there's really no excuse for him to miss out on a BAFTA nom is there?


Good point. Hadn't thought of that.

Re: 2018 BAFTA's

Could Linda Cardellini become this year's Jacki Weaver and just roll up on Green Book's coattails? That's...actually a great call. She was mentioned/thanked/praised a few times in those Green Book acceptance speeches, putting her name in voters' minds at just the right time. I can see this happenin...

Re: Potential Stats and Records for This Year's Oscars

You're missing the obvious big one - if Alfonso Cuarón gets nominated for Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing and Foreign Language Film, he would tie Walt Disney's record for most nominations in a single year, with six nominations. At least in theory, he could break Disn...

Re: DGA Nominations

I think If Beale Street Could Talk is done for at the Oscars. With PGA, DGA, and ASC all ignoring the film over work that was easily inferior, I have no hope that If Beale Street overcomes all this. I don't know about that. Just last year, Phantom Thread proved it's possible to overcome it. I rate ...

Re: DGA Nominations

Except the WGA in recent years has been very friendly to comic book movies, and adapted screenplay was light this year on the WGA ballot.

Re: Producer's Guild of America Award

The last film to get PGA, SAG Ensemble, and Globe Picture nominations and not get a Best Picture nomination is Dreamgirls (pre-expansion). Do you think that maybe we are underestimating Crazy Rich Asians popping up in Best Picture? Bridesmaids?. Damn, I missed that! Still a two time Oscar nominee.....
