I can't actually believe that, as I think the Academy is more likely to throw votes at something like Being the Ricardos (a Hollywood story by Sorkin always gets some of these guys), The Lost Daughter (real word-of-mouth going both for the Lead Performance and the Director, which usually translates to at least some Best Picture votes) or even Spider-Man (that Box Office is just so massive. If they were to go for a "blockbuster" I think this is more likely than NTTD), which are all currently outside the 10 nomination spots. But I wouldn't have thought NTTD is even in the conversation, so this is a nice surprise.
They are currently also predicting nominations for Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Sound, Best Visual Effects, Best Original Score and Best Original Song, with the song being the only predicted win for the film.
Edit: Imagine what would happen in the "Why NTTD shouldn't have been made"-thread, if the film gets a nomination for Best Picture or Best Adapted Screenplay (where Variety has it on the outside looking in at #7) =))
Anyway just the fact that NTTD is being discussed as a potential candidate is great and speaks volumes about the huge and positive impact this film had.
Yeah that is really weird
(Speaking of screenplays. I might have a copy soon)
Using characters created by Ian Fleming. Hence adapted, not original.
Makes sense! Thanks.
Is that something you could share?
Yeah but I have to rewrite it first since the copy/every page is numbered (attached to a specific crew member). Do not wanna get anyone in trouble plus I have the number one software - Final Draft - for script writing
Is that the real one or the one with the fake happy ending?
I don’t see a Best Picture nomination really happening but there is a rising buzz around the film. Hopefully a good result at the BAFTA will give it a push.
The real one of course
Yeah, the "serious film" crowd respects Bond a bit — which makes sense, since Bond is deeply rooted in the tradition of cinema as well as having a bit of "prestige" to it (not 3-4 releases ever year like Marvel). Plus this one has the whole "Last Craig one" aspect to it, who has been a critical darling forever.
There's no way it wins BP and I'd still be surprised if it got a nomination, but there is rising buzz. BAFTA/PGA will be a great canary in the coal mine.
Have noticed a lot of trades running NTTD puff pieces in the last week. Between this and "Licorice Pizza", MGM going all out on FYC lol.
Was on IndieWire reading an article about Megalopolis and came across this "For Your Consideration" ad for NTTD. I enjoyed it, so I figured I'd download it and post it here if anyone else wanted to see it.
@BMB007 I do. DM me, please
Sorry about that! Had a typo in the link, it should be good to go now.
Don't pin your life on something so meaningless.
I would like to have a copy of the NTTD-spot in high quality. Tried to download it via other sites but the quality sucks.
BTW: Is it for pot. Oscar awards or Bafta??
Oh I’m not, I’m being a bit over the top when I say that. Just pointing out that I’d be incredibly pleased if that were to occur.
I tend to think that too, but when you think about the stuff that the academy likes, it seems like films like Bond will never be recognized; those guys like what they like, and it all feels very pointless.
It’s nice that it’s getting some recognition from the Baftas, though.
But even a nomination in itself is quite an achievement I believe. I never thought that Todd Phillip’s Joker would end up receiving 12 nominations, and was quite surprised when it did. If anything, maybe that’s an indicator of the Academy trying to broaden the demographic of what films should be considered for Best Picture, and BAFTA giving it recognition is just as great too. Wasn’t Casino Royale and Craig both up for BAFTA nominations back on 2006?
Very much agree! I get that Ana is a very popular actress now, but in a fair world MGM would be plugging Lea for the Supporting Actress long-lists.
Sorry just seeing this post now. Don't know but I'd assume since it was on an American website and said "Best Picture" (not Best Film) it would be Oscar.
