Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Marjorie Prime is another film that could benefit from screeners if properly marketed. Lois Smith has a snowball's chance in Hell of being nominated for Best Actress, but since she's fourth billed in the ensemble cast, a supporting nod and win would not be out of the question. The trailer's referen...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

But SAG and Oscar nods often go to the films that have the most screener viewings, which doesn't necessarily correlate to the number of theatrical viewings a film gets from SAG and Academy members. I really don't know who the audience is for Battle of the Sexes , but I find writing off Victoria and ...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

It looks like 'Battle of the Sexes' is not the hot ticket some (including myself) thought it would be. It's received positive if indifferent reviews. Carell and Stone are likely to grab Globe nominations, but (in a packed year for Best Actress) Stone probably will have a hard time breaking through....

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Dench is someone I grew to appreciate vey late. She had been nominated for a BAFTA twelve times and won six times before her U.S. breakout in Mrs. Brown , but even though I had seen her in four of her BAFTA nominated roles ( Wetherby , A Room with a View , 84 Charing Cross Road , A Handful of Dust )...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

All the same, "hot" is not a word I would associate with Dench, none of whose previous nominations were slam dunks. She is often better than her material and from all indications is likely so again. But what a film about Queen Victoria has to do with Bill Clinton's presidency I have no ide...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Speaking of worse-reviewed -- how low do the ratings need to go for Victoria & Abdul before people to stop saying Dench is a hot prospect? Mrs. Henderson Presents did 20 points higher on Metacritic. Oh, come on! Judi Dench was never considered "hot" even when she young! It's scoring h...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

The billing in Call Me By Your Name is Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet & Michael Stuhlbarg right there on celluloid (or digital these days). As we know, billing doesn't always reflect whether the role is lead or supporting. To underscore this point: Top billing in Working Girl went to Sigourney...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

I don't know. Someone who refuses to campaign for himself might be a refreshing choice. The bigger problem for Armie Hammer is that his role could be conceived as either lead or supporting, which puts him at a disadvantage as he could come up short in both categories. The same is true for Jamie Bell...

I'd love to hear his thoughts about the races of this decade.

I'm sure Damien had his notes, but his thoughts can be found in various threads here.

If Damien couldn't get a deal done in the 11 years he had since the last edition, it isn't going to happen.

Re: Inside Oscar 2

It covers 1995-2000. The information you're looking for takes up a half page in each chapter.

I can scan the six pages if you'd like. Just let me know.
