Oscar Bait 2022 - 2023

Discussion in 'TV + Film' started by Jwentz, Apr 11, 2022.

  1. I saw Elvis last night and I swear to god if Austin Butler doesn’t get a nom/win for best actor I will riot. He was spectacularly good. I’ve not left a film thinking about an actors performance so passionately in ages. Just wow.
     
  2. Hoping it’s more In the Bedroom and less Little Children.
     
  3. I can't believe it's been 16 years since Little Children... and 21 (!) since In the Bedroom.

  4. I’m a huge fan of both, so I’ll take anything! I’m just happy he made another film.

  5. In The Bedroom is a phenomenal film. Just an acting masterclass all round.

  6. This scene should have given Sissy and Marisa both their second Oscars.

     
  7. It’s rare I think to have such a big Acting scene come off so perfectly, and to be directed so well… the plate crashing, the door slam, Sissy’s voice just distant enough (“He wouldn’t listen to me, Matt! He didn’t trust me, you made sure of that!”), the claustrophobia of their idyllic New England home…

  8. It looks nice, but Ana de Armas is such a strange casting choice for this.

    Don’t get me wrong, Ana is great. But I don’t see Marilyn in this trailer, I see Ana.

  9. If this trailer is deliberately designed to give nothing away, then great...but they may have gone a bit far with it. You can't even really tell what it's meant to be about.
     
  10. To me it looks a little obtuse and dark for the Academy. It could finally be time for Colin Farrell however, his looks like the plum role.
     
  11. It doesn’t look obtuse or confusing to me at all? Seems like quite a straightforward black comedy.
     
  12. If anyone is interested, the NY Times Popcast podcast did an episode about Elvis where they do a deep dive into the movie, and talk about what the film got right and what it didn’t. I found it a good discussion.

  13. Top Gun is already outranking Thor in the box office with twice as long of a theatrical run, give it a best picture nod just to really rile up the girlies.
     
  14. This has been in Development Hell for years. Naomi Watts was linked to it for a long time.

    Ana de Armas is a great actress but I would've loved to see Naomi in the role.

  15. I can low-key see it winning, especially with the new voting / ranking system which has already been show to benefit the ‘crowd-pleasing’ film.
     
  16. This looks outstanding.

     
  17. Don’t Worry Darling is a total stinker… I can feel it in my bones… I know it… I know it

    Whenver I see the trailer I’m just amazed by how they literally show Harry speak two words of dialogue for the entire thing when he’s one of the biggest draws for audiences to even see it and how painfully obvious that makes it that he can’t act and they had to conceal it.
