I definitely need to watch the film now, but the idea that one of these superhero movies has a good role model would make it the first I've ever watched where that was the case. From my little knowledge Wakanda has a king so it's not republican from the get go. Also with the rest of the world, Africa is starting to make really good mainstream movies, they don't need imports from the cultural hegemon.
Not fully sure of what you mean by this, but for some added context, Wakanda is ruled by a king but it's not necessarily inherited and can be challenged (in the movie at least, don't know how the comics go).
Sounds basically fascist lol.
I mean, the plot of Captain America: Civil War is basically a justification for the whole post-9/11 techno-fascist NSA-type spy shit where various govts esp. US/UK keep track of everything you do because "it'll make it easier to stop the bad guys!". So, the Marvel films are not against advocating unseemly politics. And this is probably a part of a larger discussion sol, OldeAle and I have had intermittently about extreme conservatism in blockbuster films.

Yup I agree on this, I don't watch a lot of Marvel films, but I remember watching Thor and the guy is a casual genocide, goes into the frost giant territory on a completely false and rash premise and wipes a 100s of them out. But yeah, he's meant to be a hero or something. I'm massively concerned that kids watch this stuff tbh.

So can we finally call Roma the Best Picture favourite at this point?

And will South Korea get their first foreign language nomination at the Oscars or will they go with something "safer"?

https://bfi.org.uk/best-films-2018 Sight & Sound have just published their poll, Roma is top of that too. I think Roma would be a fairly safe choice for the Oscars to be honest. They want to make progressive political statements and giving a gong to a Mexican film qualifies. Besides Cuarón already has an Oscar for Best Director, and he made the film for Netflix, it's not like he's some sort of outsider.

It will easily be nominated

But the fact that it is Netflix and Foreign Language the Higher Ups in the Academy probably don't want it to win. That will only make the Academy Awards show even more obscure to the casual viewer.

I think that he made the film for Netflix is exactly why it won't win.

I think A Star is Born is still the clear favourite at the moment. Globe results won't tell us much since the two films won't be competing against each other for the top award. Let's see how the SAG awards play out (if either gets snubbed for Best Ensemble it might be telling) and let's see which film wins the PGA and DGA before calling it.

Shape of Water didn't win any of the pther major awards last year (Globes, Bafta, SAG. but won PGA and DGA)

Roma doesn't have much money for an Oscar campaign as it is not in Netflix's business plans. Disney wont throw money at Black Panther or Mary Poppins either simply because they are such underdogs.

A Star is Born in it's previous versions have many nominations but few awards. Probably the result now as well. Only getting best song and actress perhaps.

The movies that is easiest to run campaigns on are First Man, Green Book and Bohemian Rhaosody. So money talks.

Academy Awards is not about finding the best movie. Many academy members don't even watch the nominees, they only gets bribed by the different campaigns. (That's how Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close got nominated, and how Crash won)

This is extremely annoying for us foreigners as well. Oslo 31. august wasn't nominated for Norway becuse NFI felt it's campaign was too weak. Nohing is about artistic merit anymore.

This doesn't bode well for Roma, Green Book, The Favourite and Vice.

Only one film has ever won the Oscar for Best Picture since Braveheart without getting a SAG nod for Best Ensemble. Of course, that one exception was The Shape of Water last year. :think:

Huh. I would have figured with those casts, that The Favourite and Vice would have been shoo-ins for that "Best Ensemble" category. Once again, Bohemian Rhapsody, really?

Whoa. Just realised: no Regina King. Did the SAG voters not get screeners in time or something? I know that this was a problem for Django Unchained a few years back.

Bohemian Rhapsody is greatly beloved by the general public and I think Rami Malek is the favourite to win Best Actor at the moment. At this stage, I would actually be surprised if it got snubbed for a BP nod at the Oscars.

I was hoping SAG might nominate Yalitza, they seemed more likely than most organisations. That's a shame.

The cast category is pretty terrible....okay I've only seen two of the films, but I'm really surprised. I guess Bohemian Rhapsody is looking pretty likely for a Best Picture nomination at this point.

What's with all the Blackkklansman love? I really didn't think Washington was special. And I'm still perplexed by ongoing love for the insufferably bland Adam Driver.

I didn't like A Quiet Place and don't like the look of Mary Poppins Returns, but Emily Blunt is great so her unexpected double nomination is still cool with me.

Yeah, Supporting Actress is a bit of a head scratcher. I highly doubt they missed screeners when all the critics groups clearly had them.

Are the Roma cast even members of SAG? So maybe they're simply not eilgible. (Haven't checked the rules)

Man, I'm really feeling like I'll have to see Bohemian Rhapsody now, being the awards slut that I am. Somebody please dissuade me.

I did see Green Book the other day, which was EXACTLY what I expected it to be - a film with two great actors working at or near peak, and absolutely nothing else to recommend it. I guess I enjoyed it enough for that, and I can totally see why they're both getting all the noms, but any other nominations for anything for this piece of triteness just show the typical lack of imagination and need to pick a "nice", unthreatening film dealing with racism that still permeates most of the big American awards. Jeez, Driving Miss Daisy was 30 years ago, can't we stop with these kinds of films now?

Yeah I get all that, but it's an "Ensemble" category after all...haven't seen Bohemian Rhapsody and I don't plan on it, but outside of Malek, are there any other noteworthy performances? Without looking it up, I don't even know who else is in the movie besides him.

All of Queen is great in that one. Also some of their staff are good

On the other hand A Star is Born do not have an Ensemble cast. The only I would say was good in that one was Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott.

I thought Cooper was fine too, but yeah, Gaga and Sam Elliott (needed more scenes with him!) did stand out more. I don't know off-hand the name of that actor that played Gaga's manager, but he kinda...sucks. I liked the Dave Chappelle scene though.

European Film Awards
I hoped Sunset was just ineligible for this year rather than being completely ignored.

EDIT: Ok yeah, just saw this on their site:
eligibility infoShow
Feature films participating in the European Film Awards 2018 must be European* feature-length fiction films intended for theatrical release which must have had their first official screening (be it at a festival or at a regular cinema) between 1 June 2017 and 31 May 2018
So I guess Sunset will be next year. Also saw The Wild Pear Tree and Paddington 2 in the selection, surprised they didn't get nominated for anything.

How is The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on two Oscar shortlists? I guess it must have met the requirement for a one week theatrical run in the States. It is a shame that the distributors are not interested in doing the same for those of outside the US who do not have Netflix. ^o)

Well, that ends Bradley Cooper's admittedly small chance of getting 5 Oscar noms for one film. Really surprised there's only one song nom from the film.

From what I've heard, it was the film team's decision to only submit one song. :shrug:

^Yeah I think I read that. Bizarre choice, the film definitely would have earned two nominations in the category.

I can only assume that they were worried about the votes splitting if two songs were nominated for their film. Of course, this wasn't a problem for La La Land a couple of years ago, but I guess they were thinking of Dreamgirls or Cold Mountain when they made that decision.

The shortlist for Oscars' Best Original Score leaves a lot to be desired. First Man and to a certain extent, Annihilation, are the only ones that stand out from what I've seen.

The score for Beale Street is gorgeous. In most years I'd be gunning for it to win, but Justin Hurwitz really did something special.

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??
