Scott, Perri and Jeff react to the WGA award nominations and make their own Best Director Oscar predictions.
In a brand new episode of For your consideration, Collider Award Experts Scott mantz, Perri nemiroff Y Jeff Sneider discuss WGA Award nominations and make your own Oscar predictions in the Best Director category.
Right off the bat, the gang agrees that the WGA nominations are a poor arbiter for Oscar nominations, given that many of the top contenders are deemed ineligible for various reasons. Movies like Threatening, Mank, Soul, The father Y Nomadland were ineligible this year, which may represent nominees for adapted screenplays such as Borat Post Movie Y The White tiger, as well as nominees for original scripts such as Palm springs Y Judas and the Black Messiah.
The discussion culminates with Jeff launching a passionate defense of Metal Sound, while Scott and Perri seem partial to the Black messiah script, which is the opposite of Metal Sound of many ways. This still feels like Promising young woman vs. The Chicago 7 trial, Y One night in Miami vs. Ma Rainey’s black ass toward FYC Hosts.
Meanwhile, the Best Director debate heated up surprisingly with the inclusion of Jeff from Mank director David Fincher, who was on the outside looking at Scott and Perri’s lists. Jeff wasn’t even a fan of MankBut he believes voters will admire the art and crafts on display, while Scott and Perri are more confident in the possibilities of Lee Isaac Chung Y Esmeralda Fennell. It still feels like Chloe zhao you have this Oscar in your bag, but a lot can happen between now and Oscar night, which is not until April of this year.
Mank is certainly an odd duck this awards season as he may very well lead the field in terms of overall nominations, but he certainly seems to have regressed to status as well. the Irish last year, it also positioned itself as Netflix’s top contender. Instead of, The Chicago 7 trial has shown staying power for the past few months, even if it plays things much safer than Fennell’s daring thriller Promising young woman.
For your consideration It will now be recorded weekly as awards season progresses, so thanks for watching, or listening, and feel free to leave a comment below or on YouTube as we welcome everyone’s input. FYC fans. Make sure to follow the gang on Twitter and Instagram at @MovieMantz, @PNemiroff Y @TheInSneider. Until next time FYC“Later!”
