Re: Oscar 2020 Predictions

Best film is really hard. There is not yet any outstanding contender. Jo Jo Rabbit is good but unlikely to win, might get a nomination though. Ford vs Ferrari probably not.

I've not seen Marriage Story but that's getting excellent reviews.

Joker should get a nomination.

At the moment I think it'll be between Once Upon A Time and The Irishman.

Re: Oscar 2020 Predictions

Im sure the oscars will be the usual, pat each other on the back, nonsense.

The best film ? Well it was, of course, Avengers:Endgame.


Statements like this just irritate me ;

They were not "shut out", they just didnt direct any good films.

Re: Oscar 2020 Predictions

Well, Greta Gerwig directed Little Women which was good enough (in the voters' eyes) to get a Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay (for Gerwig herself), Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nomination. Considering how many of the 'top' awards the film itself was nominated for and that she was the driving force behind the film in that she wrote it as well it is unlucky she didn't get nominated. She likely only just missed out.

I think Lulu Wang is unlucky that The Farewell didn't get anything but that's not as a big a snub. It's really Gerwig not getting the nomination that people will be surprised/focused on.

Parasite is interesting though considering how many of the other awards it's in. Could be the first foreign film to win?

Patty Jenkins did Wonder Woman. I completely agree with you though, every year they whine about black directors, or female directors or something else. You are supposed to win based on merit and not because you made a shit film but you are female so we are going to give you an Oscar. Congratulations for being female.

That's not the argument though.

Their argument is that minority demographics do not get recognised in proportion to their success. The exact opposite of an award based on merit. If Little Women is considered one of the best films of the year, one of the best written films of the year and with some of the best performances of year then even if it were directed by a man people would be commenting on the Director not getting a nod.

Re: Oscar 2020 Predictions

The problem is that the money people use circular reasons for the lack of female directors :-

a) very few women directors have made award-winning or high box-office earning films
b) we can’t risk giving films to women to direct, as they have no track record making films that will win awards or make lots of money
c) go to a)

True although the Oscars aren't as influenced by box office numbers that much so it's less of a disadvantage. There is now a lot more money for 'mid-tier' films. Greta Gerwig did well with Ladybird both critically and commercially so she was given a bigger budget for Little Women which has also been a success.

Patty Jenkins has been mentioned too, she'll is getting DC money for Wonder Woman 1984. The sisters behind the Matrix would have no problem getting funding either.

So it is slowly changing. It's mostly the official awards that allude them for now. Reviews and commercial success is largely there.

---------- Post added at 19:28 ---------- Previous post was at 19:22 ----------

Anyway I think this year there is a genuine toss-up for Best Picture. Could be: 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Irishman or Joker IMO.

Re: Oscar 2020 Nominations

Well this is infuriating. I have made my usual table summarising the nominees and for some reason no matter what resolution I size it to it is being displayed in a fixed unreadable size.
