I’m glad Parallel Mothers is getting a little awards love even if it missed the submissions for the international feature Oscar.

Adam Driver was totally on the cusp for Musical Actor if Marion Cotillard got in, so Cooper Hoffman getting in over him speaks to the strength of Licorice Pizza.


Nightmare Alley completely getting shut out is saddening. Mahershala Ali showing up for Swan Song is exciting though. I don’t know what to think about Javier Braden getting in, but of course they have always liked Sorkin.

Overall this is actually a pretty good group of nominees, especially when nobody campaigned for them this year. Aside from the people who are obviously missing (Stone, Ali, Ramos, Cotillard), it's pretty easy to deduce who the contenders are in the race.

Now I have not seen 2 3 of these, but...Raya over Mitchells, huh, that's a choice that was made.
