Re: 2023 Awards Season Thread

I have now seen all but two of the animated shorts on the shortlist. There’s some good ones and some awful ones, but 95 Senses and Once Upon a Studio are standouts.

Doesn't SGA have a different nominating process? There's some controversy among some about Melton being pushed as supporting actor when he's more of a lead. I wonder if that led to him being snubbed.

Critic’s Choice Awards are going on right now. Barbenheimer is doing well so far.

I imagine the material for Natalie Portman's charecter turned off a lot of the acting branch from that film,same way Being The Ricardo's missed Screenplay at the Oscar's even though a lot of Writers worshiped Aaron Sorkin prior to that film.

Hmmm? Then what am I to make of this article from Variety about the Best Actress contenders?
Weekly Commentary (Jan. 8, 2024): Lily Gladstone made history with her win for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” becoming the first Indigenous actress to win in the category.

Her work as Mollie Burkhart, a woman determined to find the killers of her family and tribal members, has become the darling of the season. Notable citations from significant groups such as the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle further cement her status.

Her powerful speech, noting what her victory meant to her community, will elevate her candidacy and could carry her to the Oscar stage.

Each awards season has its own “story of the awards season” — the person who has generated positive reactions and becomes a discovery for cinephiles everywhere. We’ve seen it in Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”), Troy Kotsur (“CODA”) and Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”). This year, it looks to be Gladstone, undoubtedly.

Gladstone faces stiff competition from the winner of best actress (comedy), Emma Stone from “Poor Things.” Stone made history, becoming the first woman to win actress and best picture the same year (Stone is a producer on “Poor Things”). An Oscar winner for “La La Land” (2016), she’s beloved within the acting community, and her work as Bella Baxter, a woman brought back to life by a scientist, is her strongest performance to date.
While the article is identifying her as the front-runner, but not the "clear" front-runner, it is also clearly saying that her race is a factor in bolstering support for her to win.

Golden Globe winners Emma Stone and Paul Giamatti Won the Critic’s Choice Awards for Best Actor and Best Actress. Gladstone and Murphy have some competition it seems.

If anyone wants to watch the BAFTAs, you can stream it on BritBox this Sunday (around 2 pm Eastern). They offer a 7 day free trial so you can cancel after the awards.

Re: 2023 Awards Season Thread

I'm glad that the academy has added a category for casting. It will probably overlap with best picture but give the casting people their moment in the sun. In my short unsuccessful attempt to be an actor casting directors were always encouraging to me. In the days before everything showed up on YouTube it was always fun to see a Q&A with a casting director because they would dish. A great movie if you have a chance to watch it.
