Another year, another Film Awards Season... And once again, brought to you by none other :D

2023 was an incredibly difficult year for industry. We have faced two guild strikes - screenwriters and actors, both ending in the past few months, but not without disrupting the industry for a while. This has also affected the beginning of fall season, when the most of Oscar contenders are being released. This year, award season begins in New York on November, 30th when New York Film Critics Circuit will award their favorite movies and ending in March, 10 with Academy Awards. This year had a great range of rather interesting movies from Barbenheimer phenomenon to Martin Scorsese and Yorgos Lanthimos' newest flicks.  Per usual, the award season will give us clues at which movies will become true contenders for most coveted movie award - Oscar. 

This year, the award season will look like this and these will be the award shows that I will post about here:

That's all folks! Hope to enjoy this season with some great cinema and nice conversation... As always, it is a pleasure :wub:

I've seen 5 of these films - since the others still haven't opened here - and my favourite is either Poor Things or Past Lives (they are so different it's hard to compare them). Then Oppenheimer and Killers of the Flower Moon. Barbie last, but I enjoyed it too.

Oppenheimer has to get Best Editing, and Barbie Production Design. Cinematography- Poor Things.

For lead roles I think Cillian Murphy and Emma Stone, but I wouldn't mind Di Caprio and Lily Gladstone, they were great too. No opinion on Supporting Actress - since the favorite ls are mostly from movies I haven't seen. On the other hand, I've seen the movies of the top 5 favorites for Supporting Actor, and they are all great. But I'll be rooting for Mark Ruffalo.

Best Director - well, Nolan should finally win an Oscar he has already deserved before. Although Scorsese deserves more than one. Lanthimos can wait, but I sure wouldn't mind him winning.

I need to see The Holdovers and Anatomy of a Fall, but so far, I really hope Padt Lives wins Original Screenplay since it probably won't win other categories with all those flashier rivals.

@Annara Snow, if I remember correctly, we come from the same neck of the woods (unless you moved) so I am pretty much around that number too. That said, I expect this list to change, like always.

Honestly, OPPENHEIMER is the movie of the year and I can see AMPAS going in that direction. Pair it with Best Director for Nolan, couple of tech nominations and perhaps Murphy and RDJ in acting categories and there is a winning package. 

That said, Scorsese made such a beautiful movie and we'll see how Academy reacts to it. They do like to nominate him, but when it comes to winning, not so much. I mean, THE IRISHMAN went 0 out of 10. 

In acting categories, Emma Stone is "leading the pack" in Best Actress category. She hasn't won Volpi Cup in Venice, but POOR THINGS won bigger award so that is what ultimately counts (just like we understand that Sandra Huller has better chance of being nominated for Cannes' awarded ANATOMY OF A FALL than Merve Dizdar who won Best Actress at Cannes). That said, Stone is already a winner and if we have learned anything from Blanchett v Yeoh last year, it is that it can be used incessantly against you during campaign months. So the big question for Stone will be whether Academy is ready to give Stone her second Oscar. 

I have watched ANATOMY OF A FALL and Sandra Huller is mesmerizing. As international actress, she will need the push from international bloc of Academy, and perhaps critics' push as well. The same can be said for Greta Lee, whose subdued performance is not the Academy's cup of tea.

Mulligan and Benning ride on overdue narrative, but I doubt that will be enough for win... That leaves us with Lily Gladstone, whose borderline supporting performance has gained enough passion to carry her into the Oscar season. Which of the Michelles (Yeoh or Williams) will she prove to be this season, remains to be seen. She had a locked Oscar in Best Supporting Actress, but she decided to fight for the main prize. I respect that (from both her and Mulligan) but we'll see how it plays out.

Sleeping giant in Best Actress category is Natalie Portman whose NETFLIX Todd Haynes movie, MAY DECEMBER may get her nominated.

When it comes to Best Actor, we have the clash of the giants with Di Caprio, Cooper and Murphy. Di Caprio comes from Cannes with amazing reviews and I doubt there are many against giving him second Oscar. Cooper will have overdue narrative, with 9 Oscar nominations,  0wins (4 in acting categories). Murphy is the face of one of the most successful stories of the year, he is a beloved TV face and an amazing actor so we'll see.

In Supporting categories, everything is open. Danielle Brooks got raves from screenings of THE COLOR PURPLE and I would be over the moon if she wins (I adored her in ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK). We can expect some big name to find its way to this category like Moore or Cruz, but I would adore if it would be Rosamund Pike for SALTBURN. As I hear, she delivered the goods with some epic one-liners. I watched that clip "Men are so lovely and dry"... GLORIOUS!

For gentlemen, RDJ and Gosling ride on the fame of Barbenheimer, but I wouldn't be surprised if neither wins, despite strong cases for winning. On the rise is Charles Melton and a lot of people who have seen MAY DECEMER want him nominated. Also, De Niro is never to be ignored as well as Ruffalo. 

 

Later today, when they finish announcing the winners, I will post the winners of NYFCC.

She should not have submitted for the Supporting Actress category because her role is not supporting. She is one of the leads. Actresses playing her sisters and mother would be supporting.

I hate category fraud, and I hate the way it's treated like supporting category is treated like some sort of a consolation prize and the lead category as "the main prize". It should be about whether you are playing one of the leads or a supporting character.

I also find it really annoying when people commonly call the Best Actor in A Leading Role / Best Actress in a Leading Role categories "Best Actor"/"Best Actress". No, there is no such category at the Oscars. You have to look at SAG awards or some others that don't have separate leading and supporting categories for that. The Best Leading Actor category is about leads, the Best Supporting Actor categories are about the supporting actors. It's not supposed to mean that the former are better than the latter. The former category is not all-emcompassing of all roles.

The truth is she could have campaigned in Supporting Actress category. Having watched the movie, I can see the arguments for both ways. That said, I am glad she decided on campaigning in Lead.

Sadly that is how it works these days. We have seen a lot of category frauds in the last years. I suppose the worst was 2016 with Alicia Vikander and Rooney Mara having to campaign in Supporting. Mara even objected back then, but sadly, that is how this circus works. Lately, more and more actresses are willing to campaign their co-lead roles in Lead category. Michelle Williams did it last year for THE FABELMANS, Carey Mulligan and Lily Gladstone this year. I support that and I agree with you. Supporting Actor/Actress Oscar is not some consolation prize.

For me, it is just linguistic thing, but I suppose you are right. No, televised awards always have separated Lead from Supporting performances. Movie festivals for example don't. But mostly Lead Actor/Actress win, although not necessarily. Cate Blanchett has won Volpi Cup at Venice for "I'm Not There" and that was Supporting Actress category at the Oscars. 

And, yeah... I have edited the opening post. When I'm wrong, I'm wrong :D

The most absurd example was when both of the co-leads of Judas and the Black Messiah ended up being nominated as Supporting Actors.

I would say one of if not THE most absurd example of category fraud is Anthony Hopkins winning Best Actor in a lead role for his 16 mins of screen time in Silence of the Lambs.

I wouldn't call that crazy but it's definitely a bit of a stretch.

Even more ridiculous was a video essay (about 'male centric' and 'female centric' best picture winners) that claimed Silence of the Lambs was 'male centric' and that Hopkins was the star of the film.

Of the 4 I have seen, my personal favourites would be Oppenheimer, Past Lives, Killers of the Flower Moon and then Barbie.  All are very good movies in their own way.  I don't think I could ever watch Killers of the Flower Moon again though (or at least, for a very long time), which is both a point in its favour and the opposite.  Oppenheimer blew my mind.

Lots of reunions of people who were together in different movies amd shows - or in one case, two young women both starring in new  Disney versions of popular fairytales who got a lot of racist hate for being cast.

Personal favorite is SHAME reunion of Mulligan and Fassbender. One of the gravest sins of Academy in 2010s was not nominating both of them in their respective categories for that masterpiece.

A lot of interesting pairings. Naturally, Barbenheimer couldn't have been avoided. Also interested in Bening and Moore. As always, will watch all :D

Couple of omissions, but I suppose KOTF crowd will do THR Roundtables. 

***

In other news, MAY DECEMBER is finally available on Netflix. The first reactions are considerably more positive than the first Cannes reviews from May. Netflix has the usual Oscar bait in MAESTRO, but I wouldn't be surprised if MAY DECEMBER becomes their greatest hit of the Oscar season. Whoever is in charge, I do hope they won't make the same mistake like last year betting on the wrong horse. Portman and Moore know how to properly campaign and Melton could easily become the strong contender to challenge big names in his category.

Despite having zero chances to win, mescal was my favorite in his category last year. AFTERSUN is such an amazing movie, a true gem and he is sublime. 

***
MAY DECEMBER SPOILERS

Spoiler

Having watched MAY DECEMBER, I am all in for Charles Melton winning. The Best Supporting Actor category is stacked with Hollywood heavy-weights like De Niro, Gosling; Ruffalo and RDJ, but Melton was absolutely perfect in MAY DECEMBER. The way his posture speaks about his psychological state should be in acting books. He verbalizes so little, and yet every time he is on screen, you realize what was done to him. 

My cinephile soul was over the moon to see that Haynes and Moore also transferred some of their masterpiece SAFE energy and infused it into this movie. Loved it, especially in terms of the conversations one can have. And that graduation scene with Gracie and Elizabeth and that switch of power... Portman and Moore nailed how the huntress and the hunt exchanged so easily in a second. 

Not sure about other categories, but for acting:

  • Melton - totally win-competitive
  • Moore - could be win-competitive, but I think she could be nominated
  • Portman - can't see her winning, wouldn't be surprised if she gets nominated
