  1. These reviews are going to be fun if Baseball Boy got the #10 slot and VR Troopers got the #11 slot.
  2. This is a beautiful happenstance we are undergoing at this very moment
  3. This is likely the beginning of a long line of wins for Laura Dern. She'll be an Oscar frontrunner on grounds that she would deserve it and that she hasn't won yet.
  4. Well, it's true they could've released it earlier. Personally, I'm happy it's even in contention for nominations at all. The fact that Neon's releasing it wide at all already makes it a winner in my heart.
  5. Luckily, it's not delayed; it's coming to select theaters on Friday. Unless something's changed.
  6. I've said it in another thread and I'll say it again here. It's fishy that Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Shazam!, and Pokemon Detective Pikachu were snubbed here. Someone doesn't like Warner Bros.
  7. Films that are absent include Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Joker, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, It: Chapter 2, I Am Mother, Escape Room, Shazam!, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, Dark Phoenix, and I guess maybe John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, too. Did Warner Bros. forget to submit for this category, or does someone have a vendetta against them? They don't have a single film on this list, and their snubs are some of the most ridiculous. My ten-film shortlist prediction is: Ad Astra Avengers: Endgame Aladdin Alita: Battle Angel Ford V. Ferrari The Irishman Jumanji: The Next Level The Lion King 1917 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
  8. I would still be honored to have my film distributed by Amazon Studios. The films they're releasing these days might not be the flashiest, but there's still some prestige connected to them. At this current moment, I see Netflix as "buzzy" prestige and Amazon as "subdued" prestige.
  9. I think if there's one year when Netflix needs to make a big Oscar splash, this year's probably it. There's a war surging between the different streaming platforms, and if Netflix gets a bunch of Oscar wins with The Irishman, Marriage Story, Klaus, The Two Popes, American Factory--whatever they can secure wins with--then that'd be a great look for them. They wouldn't have to worry about Disney+ overtaking them, because *accessible prestige* will be stamped onto the image of the platform. We'll see how many wins Netflix manages to secure this time around.
  10. The big winner of the Satellite Awards nominations is Ford V Ferrari without a doubt. They gave it 10 nominations, and headlines probably read something like "Ford V Ferrari leads the nominees."
  11. https://www.pressacademy.com/2019-ipa-awards/ These are the Satellite Award nominees. They also do Television awards but I did not put those here.
  12. I think at this point, any one of Awkwafina, Erivo, N'Yongo, and Woodard could be the only PoC in the race; the good news is that these eight are the pretty much the biggest real contenders, so the lineup is guaranteed at least one PoC. If they fail to nominate one of those four PoC performances, the Academy deserves the boycotts and bad ratings they're gonna get.
  13. I think the nominee from Peanut Butter Falcon would be (and probably should be) Zack Gottsagen; he's the heart and soul of the film. Daniel Craig has received strong notices from Knives Out, too. So the category would become: Daniel Craig, Knives Out Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood Taron Edgerton, Rocketman Zack Gottsagen, The Peanut Butter Falcon Eddie Murphy, Dolemite Is My Name This is definitely the prediction I'm going with...
  14. Well, I guess Awkwafina's still in the race.
  15. I haven't seen it so don't take my word for it, but I'm not sure if Okko's Inn really earns its nomination in that Indie category. There's more than five intriguing foreign animated films eligible for that category every year, so disappointing snubs happen every year, but I can name a lot of films off the top of my head that would've been more interesting nominees than Okko's Inn. Their was a Latvian film called Away that was made by only one person; that got nominated in music, but nowhere else. Marona's Fantastic Tale had a good art style and could've made for an interesting nominee. Another Day of Life was a rotoscoped glimpse at an almost forgotten war. The Last Fiction is Iran's first animated feature--correct me if I'm wrong. I'm sure Okko's Inn has merit--like I said, I have yet to actually see it--but next to Buñuel, Lost My Body, Promare, and Weathering with You, the film strikes me as the least interesting choice. It feels like any foreign animation left out of that category loses a harsh amount of awards synergy that's almost impossibe to regain. As for the "regular" Best Feature Annie category, Missing Link's resurgence (tying with Frozen 2 and whatnot) really puts the nail in the coffin for Abominable and Spies in Disguise, which could have been spoilers had they been nominated here. Klaus gains awards momentum while the three big sequels continue to stand in the way of original content. I'm rooting for the guy from Abominable to win the Voice Actor category.

  19. @CayomMagazine New Journey Pictures has released a new statement regarding the Y7 George Washington Carver film, Carver. "We're not sure if we still want to make it. But if it's made, Jonathan Majors (The Last Black Man in San Francisco) will star in it."
  20. I'd give it an A- because of how slow it is, but the craftsmanship is truly on point. I'm glad it exists and I'm glad I watched it.
