Regardless of what you think about the Globes in general, how do you guys read a lack of nomination for directing?

Bad news

Maybe HFPA just never cared about Paul. They didn't even give Paul any nominations for There Will Be Blood or Phantom Thread, which performed quite well later at the Oscars.

The GG director snub is bad news for the BP win in the Oscars, which was never happening anyway.
Plus they just gave him his first personal nom after 25 years of career.

Right now I think the realistic Oscar nom shots of the movie are

Best Picture
Best Director
Best Screenplay
Best Actress
Best Editing (Andy keeps getting noms here and there which is good)
.
.
.
Best Sup. Actor (Cooper needed noms today but the film keeps getting Ensemble noms/wins which is good enough to keep him into consideration)

If we're talking about Globes snubs, West Side Story's Screenplay nom is inexcusable. Return of King and Million Dollar Baby last BP winners to miss Globe Screenplay. And add the box office flop and remake stigma...

BP truly is going to be Belfast vs Power of the Dog... lol..

But considering Power of the Dog is a slow Netflix film with mediocre audience scores, congrats Belfast! I really hope it doesn't win Screenplay too and they split with PTA but Branagh winning 3 Oscars for this film hilariously tells you all you need to know about the industry awards

Yeah I knew the Globes always did stupid shit but the fact that they've never given him a personal nom for director OR screenplay in his entire career til now is insane

The thing that is making me crazy is the complete lack of cinematography noms or critics acknowledgement. Nothing looks even remotely as good as it this year. The fact that Power of the Dog is winning all the cinematography awards is fine... it's way too glossy and digital for my taste so I don't really get it—I feel like it's getting awards purely for the beauty of its locations but the cinematography doesn't add much to it. I'm being too harsh, there are some great compositions, natural lighting, etc... but it's still got that Netflix-y sheen... look at what TWBB did with somewhat similar locations and it's no comparison. Belfast getting nominated for cinematography drives me crazy too—that's like the worst thing about that movie in my opinion. To me, realistically (considering the Academy's taste) it should be Dune and Tragedy of Macbeth splitting wins, with LP and Power of the Dog getting nominated and then I don't really care what else—West Side Story's got some amazing shots so I'm fine with it getting in there but I'm a little tired with the Kaminski/Spielberg pairing at this point. Maybe Spencer? Nightmare Alley? (French Dispatch, in an ideal world, but that doesn't seem like it's happening).

Sorry for the cinematography rant, I know it's naive but it really does look so good and do so many interesting things that nobody else is doing... wish it would get a little consideration for that. ESPECIALLY when Once Upon a Time in Hollywood got in for like every cinematography category and this looks better imo. That Bob Richardson clout takes you far. I have a lot more wishes in terms of awards stuff this year — give Worst Person in the World some original screenplay and actress noms! Toss Macbeth into the best picture lineup! Give BCoop at least a nom, who gives a shit about the 8 min screen time! — but doesn't seem like any of those are too likely.

Given the general preference that the awards voters show for digital* over film (let alone the b/w which somehow automatically means nom bait), i'm not sure they have any idea what good cinematography really means nowadays.

*I don't have anything against digital necessarily, but especially period movies really need to be shot on film tbh. The Power of the Dog is hurt by the digital cinematography IMO.

Agreed. I loved Power of the Dog, but it might be the most digital-looking movie I've seen since 28 Days Later.

The Australian Academy nominated it for:
Picture
Director
Supporting Actor (Bradley Cooper)
Screenplay

This is "important" since they share membership with Oscars. And each category has rather strong correlation

This might be good news for his directing nomination chance for the shared voters of the Academy here have nominated him. LP might not do very good in the directing category of these critics awards, but at the Academy not many people would care what critics think.
