    Thanks Cine! Are you predicting a BP nom for EEAAO too like the other movies? Aka A24 pushing and campaigning hard for this?

    It’s true A24 has had several successes but all of them were fall/awards season releases: Room (Oct), Moonlight (Oct), Lady Bird (Nov), Minari (Feb—Extended year)

    (Sorry I put your post under Read More. I thought it’d be too long to quote and take up space)
    Yes. Despite EEA@O’s spring release being a new frontier for A24 award hopes, I think they have gold on their hands and will make the most of it. I feel extremely optimistic. I will predict this for BP, script, editing for the rest of the year. I will predict this for visual effects and Yeoh for now and likely for the rest of the year. I will consider it for other categories as things unfold (sound, supporting players, but I guess not JLC, though I wonder if she can score a globe nod because they love her and the role is “transformational” to some degree, albeit not the ways in which we usually consider it).

    Thank you for using the “read more” tag! That was thoughtful.

    Also, to others, although I really liked this film, I am not stanning in my predictions. The reception for this movie is unusually strong. I’ve seen this strength before and it’s not going to just disappear because the year is long. It’s a word-of-mouth contender that is being loved on across platforms and demographics. Again, this happens all the time to early release contenders on AW. I’ve listed many in other posts and they’re all different types of films. It’s not just Get Out.

    And if Variety category placement tea is right, Gladstone.

    "And there on top of his head were faces like she had seen only in a dream, almost too beautiful to be recognized as people at all:
    the most beautiful woman and the most beautiful man in the world, she the female version of him, and he the male version of her

    These are my top six, as well. I’d have Robbie the strongest, followed by Yeoh. If I had to take someone out to whittle it down to five, I’d remove Colman. She’s on a hot streak, but the other three are playing famous women in biopics, we don’t know much about the Empire plot other than that it’s a love story, and I believe the film is still in production while the others are already in post.

    It looks like it's a film about cinema too. I think it will probably be her biggest across the board contender since 'The Favourite'.

    Shirley Chisholm and Whitney Houston yes but Lydia Tár is a fictional character. Unless you mean someone else.

    Colman is taking over Meh as the Token Always Gets Nominated Actress but to be fair her performances are much stronger and varied than recent Streep's ones so I am not against it at all.

    Also not sure what other contender would be the British Contender of the year. Searchlight will amp up the Mendes x Sir Deakins x Colman collab (and x Firth who has The Staircase that may break out in a big way). She has the elements but of course plenty of question marks around Mendes’ first script.

    I don't buy Yeoh until the critics push her.

    Everyone was predicting Toni Collette in Hereditary, too (A24)

    Emma Stone's role seems like it could be really physical. Watch out for her, I guess.

    Naomi Ackie could explode or implode. That could go either way. Still, at the top of any list.

    Also, Eileen is a great novel but Anne Hathaway is playing a supporting character who doesn't come in until the last act.

    Stop with the Hereditary comparisons.

    If Eileen becomes a thing and gets a great distributor, then it'll be Thomasin McKenzie who gets the lead push, and Hathaway will go supporting.

    Comparing Michelle Yeoh in the massively crowd-pleasing little indie that could, post-theatre shutdown, to Toni Collette in a gruesome Ari Aster horror film is ludicrous. They have nothing in common but a distributor.

    No matter what happens in the end, Yeoh will remain in the conversation for the rest of the year, so it is silly to count her out completely.

    Yeoh will remain out until proven the opposite.
    Deal with it.
    It's still April and people are certain of things... and I'm having a problem ruling out most of the actors in my final list!!!
