I am familiar with these two and their tragic lack of an OnlyFans. But, how many 2022 predictions did they get right? I always forget to check their cred before falling for Oscar precogs.

Not r8, but in April of 2022 they predicted Colman Domingo for Rustin (wasn’t released in 2022), Hugh Jackman for The Son (huge bomb), Brendan Fraser for The Whale (winner), DiCaprio in Killers of the Flower Moon (again not a 2022 release) and Christian Bale in Amsterdam.

For actress they had Margot Robbie for Babylon, Danielle Deadwyler for Till, Michelle Yeoh (winner), Naomi Aki in the Whitney movie, and Olivia Colman in Empire of Light.

So yeah they had the winners but nothing else.

Killers of the Flower Moon. Not Leonardo DiCaprio. As someone said, his acting is "overly showy." He is chewing his own face off, especially in comparison to the woman who plays his wife "Mollie," whose face expresses itself in exquisite subtlety and grace. She earned an Oscar nomination, and she is the heart and soul of the movie.

Cillian Murphy for Oppenheimer. A sure thing, and a sure win. A masterpiece of cinema, and a masterful acting performance.

Greta Lee ain’t getting a nomination.

And Long Day’s Journey Into Night isn’t coming out until next year.

This sexy college kid stopped posting prediction videos after this one. I have a feeling he was getting a little weirded out by the “attention” he was getting by male admirers.

I picked Cillian for BA as soon as I read the list of movies to be released this year. The subject matter and his known intensity put him even then above Leo, Timothee, Christian, and everyone else, IMO, never mind Sir Ben and Bradley.

R24 here. I said, "never mind Sir Ben...."

This was back when films were first listed for 2023 release. Kingsley was scheduled for "Daliland," as Dali, and a biopic can propel an actor as we all know. Who knew it would sink?

R35, The Color Purple will screen for critics for the first time this week.

I'm extremely skeptical of the movie's chances, both with awards bodies and at the box office. Musicals haven't done well in recent years and the Broadway show never broke through to mainstream audiences, the director doesn't have a strong background, and most importantly, it looks awful. The major criticisms of Spielberg's movie were that it was sanitized, simplistic and emotionally manipulative, and this version looks like it doubles down on all of those qualities.

by Anonymousreply 51November 13, 2023 2:26 PM

I just don't get why they needed to make a musical of it. And yes, even the Broadway version. I thought the original movie was excellent. Let it be.

I think Jeffrey Wright and Sterling K Brown will get noms for American Fiction. I really loved Emma Stone’s performance in Poor Things but it may be too off the wall for a win. If Sandra Hüller is nominated, which performance? Probably the edge goes to Zone of Interest.

by Anonymousreply 54November 13, 2023 2:45 PM

R51, The Color Purple might have been popular on Broadway, but that never translated to any real mainstream awareness of it. Hamilton, Wicked and The Book of Mormon certainly had that. Even people who never go to Broadway have probably heard of those shows, and they might even know songs like "Defying Gravity."

There are no songs from The Color Purple with even the slightest imprint on popular culture.

by Anonymousreply 55November 13, 2023 3:00 PM

Color Purple existed pre social media and did dam good for a new age musical. Albeit Wicked was pre social media also but received critical acclaim.

RDJ ("Tropic Thunder") would have definitely won Supporting Actor in 2008 instead of Heath Ledger ("The Dark Knight") had the latter not died.

RDJ had the narrative -- banner year ("Iron Man" was also released that year) thus a great comeback after several years of being persona non grata due to his drug/legal issues.

If Ledger had lived, he would have had a tougher time winning, mainly because the Oscars rarely award actors in their twenties. In its 95 years of existence, only four twentysomethings, including Ledger, have ever won in that category: George Chakiris in "West Side Story" (1961), Timothy Hutton in "Ordinary People" (1980), Cuba Gooding, Jr. in "Jerry Maguire" (1996), Heath Ledger in "The Dark Knight" (2008).

by Anonymousreply 59November 13, 2023 4:01 PM

R59 I could definitely see that playing out like that. I was utterly shocked when Boseman lost especially since he had been snubbed for even a single nod while in life. But I think you might be spot on with your assessment.

The original COLOR PURPLE film was a blockbuster hit -- #4 of the year after BACK TO THE FUTURE, RAMBO II, and ROCKY IV -- but I doubt this musical remake will do as well.

“For all of the “buzz” the film, and Fantasia Barrino’s performance, seem to be getting, I just can’t see this one breaking out in big ways. Barrino is also, supposedly, outshone by Danielle Brooks and Taraji P. Henson. That’s been the general consensus I’ve had for months now.”

Early word on The Color Purple is over the top raves like “the most beautiful movie I’ve ever seen” and “hand it all the Oscars.” People love Fantasia and love Brooks even more. Sounds like they could both win though I think Brooks could have a tough time against Da’Vine Joy Randolph.

Incidentally, the stage show almost suffered a similar fate.

It was nominated for 10 Tonys and kept losing them all night, until LaChanze finally won for Best Actress in a Musical.

It lost Best Musical to JERSEY BOYS, which was that season's smash hit.

That was also the year of John Doyle's SWEENEY TODD with Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris, which scooped up Best Direction of a Musical among other categories.
