Totally un-scientific picks for the eventual Oscar nominees:

Bombshell, Downton Abbey, Rocketman

Austria’s International Feature Film selection Joy has also been disqualified for being 2/3 in English. You think countries would vet something like that before submitting films with two DQs this year already

... And it's about Nigerian sex workers.

Cue the social media outcry.

Joy is supposed to be pretty darned good, so I hear. That's a shame.

By the way, just an off-the-cuff question, but has a Quebecois film ever been nominated, if anyone knows?

Lots of times. The Barbarian Invasions won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Thank you.

How I forgot that, I don't know. But these days, I seem to be forgetting practically everything, on an hourly basis. Yeesh.

I still cannot believe this. I filled out a “best of” for the film festival I attended last week and I had La Jeune Fille en Feu winning or a close second in nearly every category. Best picture, directing, screenplay, acting, cinematography, song, even “best ending”

I don’t know where its momentum is at with the Academy or in the run up to awards season, but I can see this getting some big noms despite being foreign. I could even see it pulling an Amour or Roma and getting a Best Picture spot. Especially since France pulled this sh!t not choosing this beautiful film to represent their country.

Maybe that's what France was counting on? That way they get two pics nominated -- assuming the plan works out, that is.

Well considering Roma lost to Green Book last year, you may have a point. It's quite possible last year’s voters looked at Best Foreign as in the bag for Roma so voted for something else when it came to Best Picture.

And with Bong Joon-ho's Cannes darling Parasite with the Palm d’Ore (bc we all know how much the Academy loves South Korean cinema...), Almodovar's Pain and Glory, Sweden’s And Then We Danced, etc, keeping Céline Sciamma’s Cannes Best Screenplay winner out of the foreign category to Go Big Or Go Home may well have had something to do with it.

Or perhaps both France and Brazil simply went for the "safer" and glossier films and went with national pride—Les Mis being quintessentially French and Brazil dropping Bacurau, a scathing criticism of the current Brazilian administration, for The Invisible Life, a more traditional melodrama by comparison. It’ll be a good category to watch out for regardless, and it’ll be interesting to see what noms await La Jeune Fille en Feu.

Yeah, I'm not really familiar with what's been going on with the Brazilian choices, but I also had that same thought concerning Les Miserables. There simply is no work, in any medium, which could possibly be more French, and have been created by anyone who is more French than Hugo. It IS France, and vice versa.

Heh, good question. Though it looks like a presentation of, "What if Les Mis took place now, and in this post-modern world in which we live? Then what?" I don't know. I'll tell you after I watch it.

I will say this, though: DAMN! That looks amazing.

I just discovered that Honeyland (a brilliant, brilliant film) is Macedonia’s entry for Best Foreign Film. But it is also a documentary.

So I wonder how that will play out. I hope they can and will submit for Best Documentary as well, but it may split its votes or chances in either category.

So it looks like both Alfre Woodard and Saoirse Ronan are sitting out the Actress race this year--campaign wise.

Saoirse is doing reshoots for the next 5 weeks for that Wes Anderson movie and will miss all HFPA/Academy events. There's still a chance she gets nominated but it seems Focus is putting everything behind Florence Pugh in supporting.

Alfre is a victim of Neon dropping the ball. They pushed Clemency's release date back AGAIN to 12/27 and it will only be limited with VOD following 4 weeks after.

Both were considered in the running for the two final spots across the board for Actress.

Charlize, Renee, ScarJo, Awkwafina and Lupita almost seem like nominee locks.

Ronan is enough of a known commodity and Academy darling that she could still get nominated anyway, especially if Little Women proves popular and has sustained visibility anyway.

November's almost halfway through and I still haven't even begun to make my first predictions of the year. I generally do those in October, sometimes even September. Not sure if it's because the contenders aren't that interesting or if it's because the race is still unclear (or just pure laziness).

As a matter of fact, I don't think anyone has posted any official predictions here yet!

Globe noms are out in 23 days, its not too early at all.

GoldDerby has been a wildfire since August, I just think this year there are no clear frontrunners. Everything for awards season (except Irishman and Marriage Story) seemed to have landed and nothing is lighting a fire.

Irishman, Once Upon a Time, Parasite and Marriage Story are the the big Picture leaders but there's no clear frontrunner.

I do find it interesting, now that every single Awards contender sans Cats has screened for the guilds, pundits, media, etc and nothing is dominating the conversation is the good thing. I watch the weekly GoldDerby YouTube casts, listen to the Awards Watch podcast, read Anne and Sasha's blogs and there's literally no consensus on any category.

I'm sure narratives will take shape in the next month after Globe noms are announced but it's still up in the air which sort of makes the season more fun but also a little boring.

I believe that 1917 is screening starting next weekend, and Richard Jewell (not sure how big a player it will be, but worth mentioning) around then as well. But yeah, at the moment there is no clear front runner, though critic’s awards and Globes should hopefully give us some idea.
