    If this didn't happened last season, it won't happen unless the lineup is so barren. They will find a newcomer.

    1. Spielberg
    2. Chazelle
    3. Daniels
    4. Scorsese
    5. Cameron

    I know it's super early, but I'm feeling pretty confident on these five - I can't see a world where Spielberg directs a movie about his own childhood and doesn't go all in, especially coming after West Side Story; Babylon is an amazing and loud script, stuff that is right around Chazelle's alley and he's gonna kill it; Daniels have the acclaim, the directing is showy and if the love for EEAOO continues till the end of the year, I think the movie's gonna overperform and they'll be the first to benefit from that.

    Cameron and Scorsese are the only two I vaguely consider being at risk - even though I'm pretty sure Cameron is gonna direct the shit out of Avatar 2, and I should be wiser than to doubt him, if the movie doesn't get that big of an acclaim, I could see them looking at Chazelle as the "blockbuster nominee" and skipping him. In regards to Scorsese, my worry is the subject matter, and if this movie might end up being too dark and grimy for the Academy. I haven't read the movie though, so I'm def missing something here.

    Inarritu, Polley, Schrader, Wook and Zeller are trailing behind, but unless their movies hit an absurd level of acclaim and one of the top five don't deliver, I'm struggling to see a world where they get in.

    If Spielberg couldn't win for Lincoln against weak competition, I don't know why this material would do it for him over potentially a much stronger lineup.

    What's the precedent, Roma? It's not going to look as unique as that. And Cuarˇn also benefited from a weak lineup.

    Broker has a 71% on RT so far.. Im gonna say if a foreign director gets in it would more likely be Park.

    On paper it looks like enough A-list names so we hopefully won't need to entertain that.

    3 in a row for director is tough. McKay didnt even crack DGA on his third.

    Outside of recently

    Scorsese: (Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed)
    Payne: (Sideways, Descendants, Nebraska)
    Russell: (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle)

    These were all very strong films to some degree (Departed won BP, Descendants won Screenplay, Hustle won Globe+SAG, etc). Payne's Nebraska nom was surprising which is maybe Inarritu's comp?

    You'd have to go back to Kubrick's run for such a success? (Strangelove, 2001, Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon)

    And before then you'd have to go back to 30s/40s Clarence Brown and King Vidor, no?

    Yes, Inarritu is beloved and yes Netflix is backing but I'm cautious. Especially given how ripe he is for backlash. This one also lacks the draw, appeal, prestige, gimmick etc of Birdman and Revenant..and also Babel. Could be another Biutiful.

    We also have Cameron gunning for 3rd in a row as well.
