Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

The bias against him certainly exist. He has the entire film industry by its throat. An honourable man in a town of pigs. Nolan is an oddity in Hollywood. No stereotypical outburst, loss of control or sanity. Also, he doesn't play politics. He is this generation's Steven Spielberg. He's like a blen...

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

Never really believed their was a bias against Nolan among others in the film industry. I just thought that was insecurity of passionate Nolan fanboys, which I try not to be. But, the continuing loses of Dunkirk to this mediocre competition, especially on the technical side makes me wonder if jealo...

You're right, sound is also left. It just lost production design and VFX.
In theory it *should* win sound.
Still that's really disappointing it lost Editing, esp. since the BAFTAs are very good at predicting that category.

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

It only has picture, director and cinematography left. Which means Dunkirk will go home empty handed at the British academy awards. If you told me this six months ago I would not have believed you. Wait it lost sound? What beat it for sound? EDIT: Again, politics is absolutely disgusting. Wonder if...

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

Baby Driver wins editing, Desplat wins score. Fucking great. At this rate "Dunkirk" will probably be this year's "Arrival" (i.e. win Best Sound Editing and that's it) What a freaking disappointment this award's season has been. Even more disgusting is "Shape of Water" doesn't deserve Best Score at ...

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

Del Toro wins because he's a teddy bear. People will look back at the Best Director winner scratching their heads. Pulling a win based on personality and a cinematically inferior work is a new low. On the plus side maybe Nolan losing here will make him a big priority to win another Oscar soon to "m...

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

So what, just because I'm a Nolan fan doesn't mean I have to put him 1st in the competition. Nolan is incredibly talented and consistent but he's so fucking unlucky. Dunkirk, while not a great film (in my opinion), it's an incredible directorial achievement. Unfortunately it's up against TSOW, whic...

Re: Dunkirk Awards Season Discussion Thread

After the DGA loss, I can confidently say that Nolan is not winning BAFTA at this point, let alone the Oscars. Del Toro is now a 1000% lock for Best Director. People still believe that Dunkirk is a contender for Best Picture ? Seriously ?. It's winning sound categories, that's it. I think it'll win...
