The PGA Awards were last night. Green Book won Best Picture.
Roma had won BFCA. The Globe was split between Bohemian Rhapsody (Drama) and Green Book (Musical/Comedy).
I felt from the start that A Star Is Born wasn’t gonna have the legs to take everything down, so now here we are, with the two other seemingly “top” contenders starting to split all the awards.
Now we have to wait to see what BAFTA does, though I’m suspecting Roma takes that down. If Green Book wins there, then that might be a wrap. But I’m thinking the PGA didn’t go to Roma because they’re still not totally sold about that whole Netflix thing. I’m wondering if and how the Oscars will be different, but right now, you have to consider Green Book and Roma your two frontrunners.
I would automatically say it’s just Green Book, but you have to realize, two of the past three years the PGA was wrong (they had Big Short in 2015 and La La Land in 2016). So really it’s just gonna come down to what all your precursors are and the prevailing winds.
Plus, we still need nominations first on Tuesday. So let’s let those drop before we start proclaiming anything to be over.
Also of note, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? won in Documentary and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won for Animated, cementing those two’s statuses as frontrunners in their respective categories.
The Producers Guild announced their nominations today. I can already tell you like five of them. This is the year of the mainstream. All the obvious contenders will be there. The real question is how this ends up influencing the final list of contenders… and how many there are gonna be. That will be the most interesting part. Will they get 8 nominees?
We still have BAFTA to come before I really start looking at everything, but for now, this will be an interesting gauge of where we’re at.
Here are your PGA nominees: (more…)
This’ll be quick. The PGA Awards were last night. The Shape of Water won Best Picture. That, coupled with all the other wins — it’s the big favorite at the moment. We’ll see how things go from here on out (since they haven’t even announced nominations yet!), but it’s a huge favorite to win the whole thing.
The PGA’s been wrong the past two years, so it’s not a done deal yet. But this is a big step.
Also, Jane won for Documentary and Coco won for Animated. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
The PGA Award nominees were announced this morning. Cue all the people writing clickbait articles saying, “Can Wonder Woman get a Best Picture nomination?” I’m just guessing. I have no idea if the PGA nominated Wonder Woman, but knowing them, I can basically guarantee that they did.
So, in a minute, when I see what they nominated, just know that I’ve already said, “No, Wonder Woman will not be nominated for Best Picture.” When BAFTA nominates it for Best Picture, then let’s talk. Until then, come on, guys. Do you know who the Academy is?
Anyway, here are your PGA nominees: (more…)
This will be quick.
The PGA Awards were tonight.
La La Land won. As if there were any doubt about that one.
The only chance Moonlight really had was to pull off a win here. But theoretically if BAFTA and SAG were to go for it, we could mount a decent argument that they’d go there, even though the PGA is always the thing. (more…)
The PGA Awards were announced this morning. They are the one group that best predicts what is going to happen for Best Picture.
To get it out of the way, for all the idiots writing articles today and tomorrow to get clicks — no, fucking Deadpool is not going to be nominated for Best Picture. Don’t be stupid.
Typically they’re good for seven or eight nominees out of their list, depending on how many nominees there are. If there are 8 overall nominees, I figure they will guess 7 of them right and miss one. They always miss one. (more…)
Well now isn’t this interesting.
The PGA announced their awards tonight, and those in the Oscar know keep a close eye on this since this basically tells you which way Best Picture is gonna go.
A lot of people assumed Spotlight was going to take it because it was the slow-chugging frontrunner up to this point. A bunch of people figured The Revenant was going to win because of the Globes win and all the nominations it got.
And then the PGA went with The Big Short. And now everyone’s starting to see the reality of it actually winning Best Picture set in. (more…)
