London Critics' Circle Nominations:

BRITISH/IRISH ACTRESS OF THE YEAR
Emily Blunt – Mary Poppins Returns, A Quiet Place, Sherlock Gnomes
Jessie Buckley – Beast
Olivia Colman – The Favourite
Claire Foy – First Man, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Unsane
Rachel Weisz – Disobedience, The Favourite

YOUNG BRITISH/IRISH PERFORMER OF THE YEAR
Liv Hill – Jellyfish, The Little Stranger
Noah Jupe – Holmes & Watson, A Quiet Place, That Good Night, The Titan
Anya Taylor-Joy – Glass, The Secret of Marrowbone, Thoroughbreds
Fionn Whitehead – The Children Act
Molly Wright – Apostasy
Yay. Some recognition for Claire Foy's performance in Unsane. Surely I can't be the only one who preferred her there this year?

Oh, and while I'm never going to complain about Anya Taylor-Joy receiving recognition, it seems weird that's she cited for Glass, which as far as I know is not going to be released anywhere until next year??
I'm not familiar with the London Critics' Circle but their nomination process for actors is a little quirky, with actors in some cases being considered for multiple films they've been in during the year instead of just focusing on one performance like usual awards. So yeah, seeing Glass as one of the films listed for Taylor-Joy is weird, I don't think it's playing early at festivals or anything before its January 2019 release. But regarding Foy, I agree: she was certainly good in First Man, but I enjoyed her starring role in Unsane much more. They should have just omitted the lame Girl in the Spider's Web from her credentials for this year though, haha.
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

I think they are just listing their main credits for the year, as opposed to nominating them for all those roles. I mean, maybe Emily Blunt did an amazing job in Sherlock Gnomes?

Didn't actually realise how strong the foreign film category in these award shows will be this year until now, because the winner seems obvious. But Roma, Cold War, Burning and Shoplifters are all film of the year contenders. Got me thinking, when was the last time there was a lineup this strong?

True but for the actual nominees, the foreign film category is often surprising. Looking at the shortlist, I'm going on a whim to guess the 5 contenders as:

Roma
Capernaum
Shoplifters
The Guilty
Ayka

For the Oscars yeah, but feels like most the nominations I've seen from everyone else in that category are those 4 + Capernaum.

I don't know, I can see Burning not making the final list, but can't imagine Cold War missing out.

Screenplays aren't only about dialogue. Stage directiom also takes a lot of space.
But they nominated Green Book as well, so seems like a weak year overall.

Looks like the bookies have Roma down as the favourite for best picture now, and Gaga has fallen behind Olivia and Glenn Close.

I'm actually surprised Olivia is doing so well, she deserves it of course but Broadchurch Olivia will always be best Olivia.

I'm not sure if Crazy Rich Asians is that likely yet; I remember reading an article a few years back (I think on the film experience) that explained a bit more what the awards meant, and it was more about getting the film produced as to being a good film. In this case, actually getting the studio to greenlight and produce Crazy Rich Asians is a major accomplishment, so it doesn't surprise me to see it show up here. Given the wide field for BP, I'm doubtful that this will translate into a BP nom at the Oscars, though I wouldn't rule it out just yet.

I'm starting to feel like 'Klansman could be the winner. It's obviously super topical, with a passionate fanbase, meanwhile ASIB seems to be losing steam and Roma always had a tough hill to climb...

Predictions for now, which could very easily change but it's fun to do it early:

Picture: BlackKklansman (tenuous but lets go with it)
Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Actor: Rami Malek
Actress: Olivia Colman
Supp' actor: Mahershala Ali
Supp' actress: Regina Hall
Adapted screenplay: BlackKklansman
Original screenplay: Green Book
Cinematography: Roma
Editing: BlackKklansman (if it wins BP I guess it wins this?)
Foreign Language: Roma
Score: First Man
Song: I'll never MEET the GRRRROUND

The others: cba right now.

Saw The Favourite yesterday. Really liked it. Won't win the big prizes, but I could definitely see it getting Original Screenplay. It'd have a good shot for Cinematography most years with all that Barry Lyndon-like naturalness, but that's definitely going to Roma.

Hard to know how they decided on the Lead/Support split for Colman/Weisz/Stone. I know it's all tactical but if anything I'd have put Emma Stone lead in terms of functioning as the protagonist, though all in all it's probably pretty even in screentime between the three. Nicholas Hoult's character was fun too, but probably not big enough role to get in supporting.

Re the BAFTAs:

Justin Hurwitz snub is ridonkulous :down:

Viola Davis was great in Widows, but if we're getting an 'unexpected nomination', I'd rather it were Toni Collette or Yalitza...Why isn't Collette getting recognised by the big bodies? She was so goooood. Anti-horror bias, I guess.

The director/screenplay noms for Cold War are surprising, but I think the UK industry still kind of "claims" Pawlikowski. He lived here for 4 decades and made his first films here.

If Bale ends up winning the Oscar, I think I'll vomit just a little. Rami Malek has been the frontrunner for quite a few weeks. I really hope this continues.

Surprised by all the love for The Wife given that it's a film that not many saw. Close was far better in Albert Nobbs and should have won instead of Meryl Streep that year. On the other hand, I guess The Wife is fairly topical. If you've seen it, you'll know why.

I think it's purely people jumping on the opportunity to finally award Close, sort of like they gave Julianne Moore the statue for a film that was otherwise completely off the radar. I haven't seen The Wife so can't compare the performance to Albert Knobbs, but I agree that she's superb in that film, easily her best performance and better than Streep, yep (but there was no way in hell that Meryl could portray Margaret Thatcher and NOT win an Oscar. I remember declaring her the winner the moment the role was announced. Same with Oldman as Churchill...but I digress)

Anyway, I think it's very Close (har har) between Glenn and Olivia. Starting to lean towards the former.

The Critics Choice BP winner has matched with the Oscars 5/8 times this decade. So very good news for Roma (easily my pick from the contenders, and it would be among the best winners of all time) but neither is it set in stone...

Paul Schrader, “First Reformed”
What is this? A worthy best original screenplay winner? (D:)
inb4 people saying that it ripped off Winter Light. tehe

(And to be clear, that's pretty reductive and I don't agree really, though the influence is obviously strong in several places - First Reformed was my fav of last year after all).

If Rami doesn't win the best Oscar I may actually riot...

Producers Guild Awards:

Picture: Green Book
Documentary: Won't You Be My Neighbor
Animated; Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse

Ho-hum. Very disappointing that pablum like Driving Miss Daisy Part Deux is getting so many awards, but I guess some things never change.

Very true. Also..."Gay people are people too, especially when they're famous singers who had the courtesy to die young of AIDS, and we hear their songs at football games".

I assume they're going by UK commercial release.

I wish the Razzies were an official list. Then again I'm probably one of the few who has seen all of them (ON PURPOSE!)

Oscar Predictions 2018

I don't really have a great grasp on the awards buzz this year, but I thought that I might as well share my thoughts on who/what will make the cut before the nominations are announced.

I'm trying something radical. For each category, I'm giving myself two supplementary options that I think could possibly make the cut instead.

Actual predictions in bold. Possible spoiler nominations in red.

BEST PICTURE

Black Panther
Blackkklansman
Bohemian Rhapsody

Crazy Rich Asians
The Favourite
Green Book
If Beale Street Could Talk

Mary Poppins Returns

A Quiet Place
Roma
A Star is Born
Vice


BEST DIRECTOR

Ryan Coogler, Black Panther
Bradley Cooper, A Star is Born
Alfonso Cuaron, Roma
Peter Farrelly, Green Book

BEST EDITING

Might fill in the rest of the categories later, though Editing is the one to look for to see which film has the clearest path to the BP award if history is anything to go by.

I'm curious, how do you see A Quiet Place making the cut? I can see First Man and your two alternates getting the nom before that one. Although First Man got absolutely no traction this awards season, for whatever reason.

I also really don't see Debra Granik getting a director nod over Spike Lee; this really did not end up being the year of the woman, at least not when it comes to directors getting major awards.
