They only need one woke mainstream film and that will be Black Panther, so don't make a side bet on that one

Is the Glenn Close ranking at #2 a foregone conclusion/lifetime achievement type of thing? Because the obvious swap to make in Best Actress is to take her out of the list and put Yalitza Aparicio in, who will surely be nominated if enough voters see Roma

Nothing I would hate more than to see that getting nominated. Marvel doesn't need to be legitimized. Would love to see Jenkins triumph again though

Interesting how little overlap there will be this year with the Oscars-- Beale Street is the only likely top film to be nominated in Best Picture, unless we see a Phantom Thread-style sneak surge for First Reformed

It's always amazing when someone like Tapley, who should know better(?) is confused when the banal tastes of some of our greatest artists are brought to the fore. Anderson hasn't said a bad word about anyone else's work since what seems like his comments on Fight Club, and is probably friendly with Krasinski. A Quiet Place remains a terrible movie that would be a black mark on the academy if it is nominated in anything beyond Sound Mixing

Considering Maya Rudolph starred with John Krasinski in Away We Go, it's not unreasonable to think they're prob friends

Howard Stern and his wife go on vacations with Krasinski and Blunt - the guy definitely has quite the Rolodex, which makes sense because he seems excessively pleasant

Anything but Widows winning an ensemble award this year is a joke. That film only works due to the whole cast doing A+ work

Wow, is that an uninspiring, middlebrow set of awards, even for NBR. If this is where awards season is heading despite the number of worthy candidates this year, the disconnect between quality and recognition will look even more striking than usual in 5-10 years.

NBR usually only bats .500 on Best Picture, so you can pretty quickly figure out which titles to discard going forward

Certainly that's a more compelling animated choice though I'm hoping something like Have a Nice Day or The Night is Short, Walk on Girl pulls through.

Yeesh, I can definitely see an Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and a never, ever nominated for any category David Cronenberg.

What's wrong with the Spider-Man movie? By all accounts it is pretty good.

This is getting me hopeful about some Golden Globe/Oscar noms for First Reformed.

Not that the awards matter in and of themselves but barely anyone in the U.S. watched that movie... and they need to. Whatever positive attention it can get, I hope it happens.

With the NBR Awards, I am trying to understand Roma not being grouped with Foreign Language Films but being in the Top Films? Because Netflix produced?

I can definitely see the Academy nominating Santa Claus, and never ever nominating this toaster

I agree. Just because it's targeted at children doesn't mean it doesn't have any merit.

That's not what I meant, but yes, great films have been made for children.
