    Plus the people who watch aren't the "real" viewers networks want. AKA: not enough straight white men of a certain age.
    Yes. Across the board people are watching less television.. especially network television. Conservatives say it's because of liberal Hollywood.
    I think there are so many factors. Most of the people who used to sit down as a family and watch 2-4 hours of television a night now don't have enough hours in the day. People just have so much going on and very little time to do it.
    And we thought all the modern appliances would give families more time during the day.

    I'm really hoping that Toni Collette gets a nomination for "Hereditary"-- her performance is a powerhouse. That scene at the dinner table is worthy of all the awards. The problem is that Hereditary is a horror film, and Oscar voters may not see it based on that.

    Why don't we at least, I don't know, SEE it first? Gaga's acting in the previews doesn't look like anything special to me, but maybe she'll surprise. It clearly has a massive marketing campaign behind it. That doesn't necessarily mean it's a great film. Same with all the other movies that haven't been released yet. All we're doing is getting caught up in reviews and marketing campaigns. The current trend of announcing which films are gonna be the Oscar films ahead of time has done nothing but denigrate the award.

    The best movie I've seen this year is You Were Never Really Here, which I'm sure will get nothing, since it has pretty much no campaign behind it. Joaquin Phoenix was fantastic.

    Toni Collette is my fave out of the female performances I've seen so far, and she deserves a nomination, but I find the awards becoming less and less relevant with each passing year.

    Does anyone know if ROMA is going to be released on Netflix concurrent with a theatrical release? Google is not helping me. The last article I could find was dated back in August. GoldDerby had a video where they said Roma would be out on Netflix while also out at theaters.. but they didn't say when. Ahhhhh All they did say was that Netflix has decided to be as aggressive with Roma in theaters as it is with promoting it on streaming????? wtf?

    So just kind of wanting to talk about where you all are at as far as who you think is going to nominated at Globes, SAGS, Bafta, Oscars, IndySpirit...

    Right now I'd like to put a big spot like on Chalamet and Lucas Hedges. Particularly how they both could be nominated in the same category in similar films. Chalamet in Beautiful Boy and Lucas Hedges in Ben is Back (although it's more likely Hedges will be nominated for Boy Erased if a nomination comes his way at all.)
    I hope they don't cancel each other out and I hope they have careers that last many decades.
    I think Chalamet is a lock for a supporting nomination in everything but the Spirit Awards and I think Hedges will definitely get in for Ben is Back at the Spirit Awards. We'll see.

    Then we have Nicole Kidman who seems to be getting these amazing roles, better roles than she's ever had in this next chapter of her life. Boy Erased where people are really thinking she is getting nominated.. particularly at BAFTA. And Destroyer which critics are not at all dismissing.
    The problem with her at the Globes is that Drama is so heavy with Gaga not entering the Musical/Comedy Actress section.. I mean, I very much doubt anyone in comedy will get into the Best Actress race come Oscar. I mean, Olivia Coleman might if that's where they place her. It's a very dark comedy from what I understand. I don't know. Melissa McCarthy is going to be placed in Drama as well?

    The Spirit Awards have come out with their nominations. I feel like the race to the Oscars starts to get its shape right around now.

    This list has really confirmed Glenn Close and her chances. Regina King and her chances to certainly be nominated if not the overall fav in Supporting. And even just looking at the Foreign Films nominated.. bodes well for Roma and The Favourite. Documentaries too.

    I didn't put spoilers on it.. I will for all the future nominations. Just wanted people to see how these things look.

    I don’t know how I was unsubscribed from this thread, but it happens.

    OK, first thing. THOMASIN MCKENZIE IS THE FUCKING LEAD IN LEAVE NO TRACE!!! Shit, I thought only the first tier awards did that thing of putting younger actors in Supporting no matter how big their part is. What’s weird is the girl from Eighth Grade, who’s several years younger than Thomasin (who turned 18 a few months ago), but she got in Lead. Oh, well, I’m glad she got something, because she’s fucking amazing. Such a quiet, focused performance. Anyway, nice to see some love for that film and for You Were Never Really Here. Two marvelous movies.

    A lot of people seem to be on Team Toni this year. I’m on Team Rosamund. No, I haven’t seen A Private War yet; my new city is kind of a vast wasteland as far as prestige movies go. But, you know, ROSAMUND PIKE. That was a love at first sight thing. She’s been so fucking good for awhile now and, well, she’s gorgeous and I wuv her.

    Has anyone heard of a documentary called Bisbee ‘17? It wasn’t nominated here, but it was at the Gotham Awards (which is tomorrow night). It’s based on a nasty historical event in Bisbee, AZ a century ago, and apparently, Bisbee residents play the 1917 folks in re-enactments of that time, which still haunts the town. It sounds absolutely fascinating.

    Awards Season is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. I shan’t be unsubbed again.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    ^It is the most wonderful time of the year! I haven't seen or heard of those films: Leave No Trace and You Were Never Really Here until I saw the list.
    I also haven't seen A Private War but I love Pike as much as you do and then I just became intrigued by Marie Colvin. I had never heard of her before so when you see these movie trailers and previews with this woman running around with an eye patch in war zones and then it says based on the real life of war correspondent Marie Colvin. I've been reading her collected works in a book I bought on my Kindle for $3.99. It has a forward written by her sister. And of course I have watched all the interviews youtube has with Marie Colvin. Problem is.. there aren't many. I thought their would be so much more. Which actually speaks to her work ethic. This was a person on the move. She gave a great series of interviews in black and white for some sort of archive.
    My impression of her was that she really was not in it for any kind of accolades and the reason she didn't do more sit downs was because she was so busy doing all the interviewing.. while also be shot and shelled at.

    National Board of Review Winners:

    Best Actor - Ethan Hawke in First Reformed (A24)

    Breakthrough Actor - Elsie Fisher in Eighth Grade (A24)
    Ensemble - The 2018 Best Actress nominating committee also voted to award a special Gotham Jury Award to Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz for their ensemble performance in The Favourite (Fox Searchlight Pictures).

    So here is the list of TOP FILMS from The National Board of Review. Very interesting what was left off.

    Top Films (in alphabetical order)
    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
    Black Panther
    Can You Ever Forgive Me?
    Eighth Grade
    First Reformed
    If Beale Street Could Talk
    Mary Poppins Returns
    A Quiet Place
    Roma
    A Star Is Born

    Top 5 Foreign Language Films (in alphabetical order)
    Burning
    Custody
    The Guilty
    Happy as Lazzaro
    Shoplifters

    Top 5 Documentaries (in alphabetical order)
    Crime + Punishment
    Free Solo
    Minding the Gap
    Three Identical Strangers
    Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

    Top 10 Independent Films (in alphabetical order)
    The Death of Stalin
    Lean on Pete
    Leave No Trace
    Mid90s
    The Old Man & the Gun
    The Rider
    Searching
    Sorry to Bother You
    We the Animals
    You Were Never Really Here

    They did not list The Favourite, Green Book, Widows, First Man or Beautiful Boy, Boy Erased.
    They did list A Quiet Place and Can You Ever Forgive Me. And of course A Star is Born. I'm excited by this because the thought was A Star is Born would need to take some critics awards to fend off films like Roma and The Favourite. It's also really cool to see CYEFM? because this is the little movie that I think could get in the picture race and could get Melissa McCarthy a best actress win. We shall see.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs being listed as a top film of 2018?? Hahaha. Ok. Those Coen brothers are never ever completely left out.

    There’s been a lot of love so far for First Reformed. Didn’t see that coming.

    Roma has been getting love too. Probably because Cuaron is God.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.
