    Ang Lee was snubbed and then went on to win two.

    the precision of the camerawork, framing and editing of Decision to Leave is unreal, it's immaculate. PCW really should be in contention for this even if he isn't

    1. Steven Spielberg, The Fabelmans
    2. Damien Chazelle, Babylon
    3. Martin McDonagh, The Banshees of Inisherin
    4. Todd Field, Tar
    5. Sarah Polley, Women Talking

    6. Park Chan-wook, Decision to Leave
    7. Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert, Everything Everywhere All At Once
    8. James Cameron, Avatar: The Way of Water
    9. Ruben Ostlund, Triangle of Sadness
    10. Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu, Bardo

    i feel confident in the top 4, but any of those 6-10 could make that 5th spot, i think. with Polley, it's a stylishly and expansively made film given the relative small-scale of it but the visual choices have already been, and will continue to be, very divisive. Decision to Leave is well-directed in an incredibly flashy and obvious way but the film itself might be a little distancing for some; then again the directors branch highbrows might appreciate that anyway. i don't think the director's branch highbrows will go for EEAAO, on the other hand. and Cameron, you kinda can't count him out imo, if that movie is good then it'll be because it's a big, loud, flashy directorial achievement.

    regarding the other conversation here, Banshees is a much more visually ambitious and tonally expansive film than anything McDonagh's done before, inc. Three Billboards, and as such stands a better chance here than that film did.

    The Daniels will probably miss and be snubbed, and I'll be sad.

    I disliked the film but I cannot deny what they pulled off was directorial slam dunk.

    Strong early releases almost always get directing nomination, c'mon. It must be too strong competition for the Daniels not to be nominated.

    I'm predicting the Daniels 'cause EEAAO is such, SUCH a directorial showcase, but after Dune missing, I have accepted this branch can be random in their snubs

    1. Spielberg
    2. Polley
    3. Chazelle
    4. Field
    5. Daniels

    If they are snubbed, I think it'll be in favor of an established name that blindsides everyone, like Ińarritu (if the industry is indeed warmer to Bardo than everyone else). And there's also Cameron, who shall never be doubted.

    We should be getting in our skulls by now that we will have an international director in the five. Now, will it be Park Chan-Wook, Ruben Ostlund, or Innaritu?

    Can't shake this weird feeling that Babylon will be extremely divisive and a commercial flop (and I'm not just talking about the Brad Pitt controversy). Call it a gut instinct.

    Oh, Östlund makes perfect sense for the "foreign" slot (although I'd not be surprised if he got in anyway, and that the actual foreign slot went to Ińárritu, who we can never count out, especially if the talk about the new Bardo cut are to be believed).
