I am VERY excited to see Little Women!!! With respect to awards season while I did not expect Timothee to be nominated (only due to the fierce competition this year among older men), I am surprised at Greta Gerwig not getting nominated for Best Director. Obviously the best people should be nominated annually no matter how many are men, women, white, black, etc. That being said, life is messy and complex and I think awards nominations are inherently subjective due to voters' tastes. If Hollywood is interested in promoting more women in top roles, Greta has once again proven herself to be extremely qualified. And it sounds like Greta has hit another slamdunk with Little Women based on reviews. Greta's lack of nomination smells like a missed opportunity to me.
Yeah, especially since the same body of voters did not nominate her for Director in 2018 for Lady Bird.
In all the years of the Golden Globes, since January 1944, only two women have been nominated: Kathryn Bigelow (Hurt Locker 2010), and Ava DuVernay (Selma 2014). That's fucking it. Two women about film based on men. No winners.
I see what you're saying. I just thought he might attend to support Saorise since they're such good friends.
He could do that, but again, he has his own life and other things to do instead of going to a boring ass awards show that snubbed him, to support a co-star friend who the industry loves nominating anyway, and who just won a GG for Ladybird in 2018. I'm quite sure Timmy has many other things he'd rather do than play third wheel at an event they didn't nominate him for. I know you want to see him, but we can't think like that.
If LW would have been nominated for best picture (drama), he probably would have gone. I think he is probably more annoyed the movie and Greta were snubbed than the fact he wasn't nominated this year. I doubt he'll go now - what's the point.
The King and Little Women are Eligible to be In Contention for the Best Picture for Oscar. They are two of 344 films released in 2019 with a qualifying theatrical run in LA County by Dec 31st.
Posted: Tuesday, December 17, 2019 - 15:00
Three hundred forty-four feature films are eligible for the 2019 Academy Awards®, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today.
To be eligible for 92nd Academy Awards consideration, feature films must open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County by December 31, and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days.
Under Academy rules, a feature-length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes and must have been exhibited theatrically on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.
Feature films that receive their first public exhibition or distribution in any manner other than as a theatrical motion picture release are not eligible for Academy Awards in any category. The “Reminder List of Productions Eligible for the 92nd Academy Awards” is available at www.oscars.org/oscars/rules-eligibility.
Nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards will be announced on Monday, January 13, 2020.
The 92nd Oscars® will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
Oscar nomination voting begins today, ends on the 6th.
Nominations will be announced on January 13th. Short of a miracle, Timmy won't be in this year's race, regardless of his outstanding work. Any nominations Little Women receive will be for Gerwig and her actresses and Timmy will not be part of any in person Oscar promotions. Why? Because he won't be nominated and not obligated to appear at Academy promotional appearances.
I'm so happy for Joaquin Phoenix!!! He's going all the way to the Oscars with his Joker!!!
And the best movie of the year, 1917 won Best Pic. Let's see if it can maintain this momentum through the Oscars. It goes wide in the next week. I'll see it again for sure and will try to catch a Q&A!!!
Brad, Renee and Laura Dern won big too, so it looks like these 4 people may be the winners on Oscar night. ALL of them have done well with critics.
Little Women noms: screenplay, leading actress, supporting actress, music, costume desing. Unbelievable! No best film, no best director, meh...
At the same time I'm happy for Joker's several nominations and success.
So I have ambivalent feelings about the award season so far. I believe that LW is a masterpiece (according to my favourite local movie magazine and you guys) as Joker is. But neglecting LW is a shame on voters and the industry.
