2019 Movie Awards

Postby LustForLeith » Sun Jan 21, 2018 12:23 pm

I know, I know...

2018 hasn’t even been done yet and it’s probably too early to say what’s going to be in contention next year.

But the early bird sometimes catches the worm!

I’m going to try and keep an up to date eye on stuff for next year. Just now Sundance is in full swing which is an indication of how films may fare award wise next year.

But there’s s few films that I think will have an impact on awards next season.

These are...

Mary, Queen of Scots

A historical epic said to feature a modern slant audiences can relate to it features two of the most respected young actresses in Hollywood today, Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan.

I’m particular Ronan is in fire just now. She’s got an outside chance winning an Oscar this year but even she was to be nominated for Lady Bug that would be theee nominations. Don’t rule out a fourth next year.

First Man

Damien Chazelle dazzled Hollywood with his first two films, Whiplash and La La Land. Here he directs his La La Land Star Ryan Gosling who’ll be playing astronaut Neil Armstrong.

It will be interesting to see how Chazelle handles a non musical film but one thing Academy voters live when t comes to Actors is the winners playing real life people.

I reckon that ten of the last thirteen best actor winners have played characters based on real people.

Boy Erased

Actor Joel Edgerton goes behind the camera to tell the tale of a young man (Lucas Hedges) who comes out only to be forced to attend a programme to convert him. His parents are played by Russel Crowe (remember him?!) and Nicole Kidman (best actress working in Hollywood just now) while the head therapist is played by Edgerton.

With its acting talent and it’s September release this could feature heavily.

Bohemian Rhapsody

The often delayed biopic about Freddy Mercury has had its share of troubles with director Bryan Skngwr recently leaving the film.

But Mr Robot Star Rami Malek looks impressive as the Queen frontman. With a Boxing Day release film bosses are hopeful.

Backseat

Adam McKay who brought us Anchorman and other comedy classics stays a little bit more dramatic after the hugely successful The Big Short.

This time it’s his tale of former Vice President Dick Cheney played by Christian Bale.

His wife is played by Oscar bridesmaid Amy Adams while the rest of the cast is cracking including Sam Rockwell as George W Bush and Steve Carrell as Donald Rimsfield.

Like The Big Short And other strong ensemble films such as American Histle and Silver Lining Playbook this could feature. But can someone stand out from the crowd to gain a nomination?


Beautiful Boy

Steve Carrell again as he teams up with thhis years hottest prospect Timothy Chalamet about a Dad helping his son battle drug addiction.

The Women Of Marwen

Steve Carrell again! This time starting in technical wiz Robert Zemeckis film of a man dealing with he effects of being a victim of an attack.

There’s no doubting the director is an effects marvel but this might be a bit more difficult.

Of those and playing it as a numbers game on previous nominations Amy Adams could be a contender and Steve Carrell looks to be in with a shout.

Thinking caps on!!!

Paddy Power, my usual go to bookies for Oscar bets, have come back to say they’re not offering odds. Boo!

I’d they did I’d throw the name of Laura Dern into the mix. She stars in a story of abuse called The Tale rhats harrowing and unforgettable.

More Sundance chat soon!

Paddy Power? I would suggest it is because they have no heart in their novelty markets any more and they have piddly limits. Think I was restricted to TEN PENCE for the SAG awards! You would be better off asking Betfair who are prepared to lay a bet if not only because they also share the same odds compilers.

Ladbrokes have some film fans. William Hill may oblige if you're lucky. Good luck asking around for other firms to price things up.

Cheers for the advice!

Paddy Power have served me well but you get the feeling that they’re not daft and offer lower odds even if they’re unsure just to prevent losing a lot. Which makes sense!

Hoping for a return when about August time bookies start posting Oscar fields, that’s what happened with Jared Leto and Matthew McCaunagh a couple of years ago
