    I really don't see Argentina, 1985 winning. It's such a by the numbers movie, not really a cinematic material, of course it's likely to get nominated but that's it. I don't see Decision to Leave getting even the nod, to be honest. It's a popular title, sure, and I personally liked it quite a lot, but it's just trying too hard and the tone is all over the place for many.

    All Quiet on the Western Front's script is also messy, but it's still an effective anti-war film which people mostly like and has a chance to get other nods as well. So I guess it's between that and Close for now.

    I've only seen 20 of the submitted films so far but would be very happy if either Holy Spider, Decision to Leave, Close or The Quiet Girl ended up with the prize but I sort of doubt any of them will.

    I'm at about 13 or so. 14 today after seeing the Portuguese entry (Alma Viva)

    It's still Joyland my winner (sig). Holy Spider runner-up. None of this will win duh. I really liked Girl against some of AW, so keeping expectations high for Close.

    OK from the EFA Close, Corsage and Holy Spider went excellent in the noms. Alcarras got Best Picture and Screenplay noms. EO and Saint Omer got Best Director noms and Favino is the representative of Nostalgia. Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Spain, Poland, France and Italy got noms there. The big absention is Germany. Zero noms in the main category. Also Sweden if you consider Boy from Heaven...

    After watching Close I’d be surprised if that doesn’t win honestly.

    I think one of the most consistent performances thus far is actually Holy Spider. I remember it seemed to have okay-ish word from Cannes, but it seems to be performing much better post-Cannes. Not enough to topple Close/AQITWF, but a likely nominee in the end

    I also feel like it's the frontrunner. Hard not to connect with it, I was shattered after the screening. It won Audience Award at Morelia... IMO the best indicators for this category are second-tier festivals (no shade, I just mean non-Grand Slam and I'd place Locarno/Rotterdam/BAFICI in another category) and audience awards.

    I loved it as well. I cried of course lol.

    Also I loved (and recommend) The Quiet Girl, such simple story and filmaking but very effective. It hits you hard as well. That beat Belfast in the Irish Awards and is doing really great as well with audiences at festivals so it’s a big conteder for the nomination at least.

    Close is a tale of two films for me. 1st third is incred. Last two thirds... no. Obvious. Excellent performances though.

    I agree that first one is the best by far. I loved it so much. I understand the other parts can be polarizing.
    It’s also so beautiful visually. The first shot with the 2 kids running around the flower field. Whew.

    Same! She’s so good and heartbreaking, I couldn’t help but want to see a film that tells the story from her perspective. Between this and Les choses qu’on dit, les choses qu’on fait, she’s been killing it with the scene-stealing supporting roles recently.

    I totally agree with everyone that says it goes downhill quickly after the first 40 minutes, but my audience cried pretty much the whole time and I think most AMPAS voters will have the same reaction.

    There's always going to be a wild nominee here from the shortlist. Excited to see what it'll be and which film it'll displace.

    I think Corsage is ahead of a couple of those films above as well. It seems to have wide appeal.

    I've seen 19 submissions so far, I guess. And here are my current predictions (distributor and premiere festival also mentioned, if available):

    ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT / Germany (Netflix / Toronto)
    ARGENTINA, 1985 / Argentina (Amazon / Venice)
    CLOSE / Belgium (A24 / Cannes)*
    THE QUIET GIRL / Ireland (Super LTD / Berlin)
    UTAMA / Bolivia (Kino Lorber / Sundance)

    Rest of the Shortlist: Holy Spider / Denmark (Utopia / Cannes); Bardo / Mexico (Netflix / Venice); Klondike / Ukraine (Sundance); Saint Omer / France (Super LTD / Cannes); Corsage / Austria (IFC Films / Cannes); Boy from Heaven / Sweden (Samuel Goldwyn Films / Cannes); Decision to Leave / South Korea (MUBI / Cannes); The Blue Caftan / Morocco (Strand Releasing / Cannes); Joyland / Pakistan (Cannes); EO / Poland (Sideshow & Janus Films / Cannes)

    Alternatives: The Kings of the World / Colombia (Netflix / San Sebastian); Alcarras / Spain (MUBI / Berlin); Safe Place / Croatia (Locarno); Return to Seoul / Cambodia (Sony Pictures Classics / Cannes); Under the Fig Tree / Tunisia (Cannes); World War III / Iran (Venice)

    ***

    Holy Spider is a strong 6th imo, and I started thinking we may be underestimating Bardo here.
