General Movie/Television Discussion Board / Re: Awards Season
« Last post by Kale Pasta on December 01, 2018, 04:45:00 pm »
Vice has been getting mixed reviews on Letterboxd.  I think it'll get acting nominations but I'm less convinced in it getting a Best Picture nom.  I'm replacing it in my predictions in favor of Widows.
If Vice isn't amazing I'm gonna be really sad, that and The Front Runner were the films I was most looking forward to for the rest of the year and the latter already didn't do so well critically.

That being said, I'd be surprised if Widows wasn't nominated regardless of how Vice does critically.

Results of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards

I was getting more and more confident in First Reformedís chances until just now, because apparently Paul Schrader said some stuff about Kevin Spacey that might end up torpedoing the filmís chances. I hope Iím wrong.

2018 Satellite Awards nominations, in which they nominate just about everything in Awards contention somewhere.

I'm thinking the Best Picture nominees are:

A Star is Born
Roma
If Beale Street Could Talk
The Favourite
Vice
Green Book
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Black Panther
First Man
BlacKkKlansman
I agree with all except CYEFM? and maybe First Man. I havenít seen much enthusiasm for the former outside of the lead actors (I do think itíll pull a screenplay nom though), and First Manís lackluster box office performance is probably going to make it go the way of Blade Runner 2049, where nearly all its nominations are technical. It still might have a chance if other awards groups show some love but Iím not sure. Same applies to Widows, sadly.

I myself am predicting these so far:
A Star is Born
Roma
Green Boom
The Favourite
If Beale Street Could Talk
Vice
Black Panther
BlacKkKlansman
Mary Poppins Returns

The tenth spot, if filled, could go to either First Man or Widows if thereís some support for it. Alternatively, First Reformed or Eighth Grade could (which, given their strong early showing, might very well be the case).

Also, congrats to Dylanís veritably centrist Senate candidate.

This was actually the first thing I expected to see on this thread - some post from him to acknowledge this. At first, I thought he was being cautious because of the recount, but now it's clear he just doesn't care.

The results in your state actually bring to mind something I read at Vox last month, where they pointed out mostly blue states often still go for red governors, suggesting they are happy with essentially keeping the status quo and not implementing truly expensive progressive initiatives, like Kale's state attempt to pull off single payer on its own that left it with a red governor. I think there's something to that, especially since these midterms have proved the opposite in many cases, with Democratic governors winning in red states that had enough of tax-cutting experiments like Kansas, and Louisiana a couple years ago.

Otherwise, not sure there's a particular politician to comment on. Well, I hoped Cruz would get ejected, but sadly that didn't work out. Even worse is that the loss still didn't shut Beto fans up. The Arizona upset was probably the most interesting race overall, since these were two very strong contestants, and the result reflected that. I heard there's speculation McSally might replace the 76 year-old guy who replaced McCain, which makes sense. Pretty much every other new Senator was pretty boring, tbh, though to be fair, so were the incumbents they replaced - it seems that neither the old nor the new ever had a chance at a presidency or even vice-presidency.  I guess Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the lower chamber makes up for that, though.

10 years ago I would have thought this was the coolest thing in the world.

Now, I am wondering whether this may be a rare case where our dubbing will be preferable to the original.

Not that anyone cares, but awards season is back in full swing. A24 and Chloe Zhaoís The Rider won big at the Gotham Awards.

Iíll be very pleased if First Reformed gets Oscar nominations at the very least for Ethan Hawke and for the screenplay. I doubt Toni Collette gets much more momentum but Iím glad her performance is getting some awards love.

Nobody at all is interested in saying anything?
Iím probably too late, but I think the results were predictable overall.

Everyoneís saying that Colorado is officially blue, which is fair given the blue wave for Governor, AG, Secretary of State, and Treasurer, but we also seem to hate taxes. A decent portion of fiscally progressive ballot proposals failed, like the two infrastructure proposals, pumping more money into public education, and some fracking disincentive motions, so Iíd say itís indigo rather than pure blue until these trends are long standing. A lot of the ballot proposals went the way I voted, which was cool, and we may be stopping gerrymandering in the state for the time being, which is nice.

Also, congrats to Dylanís veritably centrist Senate candidate.
