Nah. I didn't expect Licorice in Ensemble. Hoffman was never happening. Haim was 50/50. Gucci is A-list actors hamming it up. Cooper making it for such a small role is a miracle honestly. Wrongright is also wrong (lol) because they said Don't Look Up was winning BP and Leo couldn't even get a nom here

Licorice Pizza still did extremely well at the BAFTA longlist. Better than House of Gucci did. It qualified for Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume, Editing, Production. Gucci alone missed Director

I do think that the concerted effort by the Academy to include more diverse and leftfield members among its voters has helped PTA's future Oscar chances, as evidenced by all the nominations that PT received. The old Hollywood guard didn't seem very interested in him (helping to explain the almost complete snub of The Master), but there are a lot more international and younger voters now, among whom PTA is much more revered. For instance, I distinctly recall Olivier Assayas saying that he'd loved PT, which he watched on an academy screener (and presumably voted for?).

I reckon we could be onto a Kubrick thing here and PTA’s only ever Oscar win will be for Cinematography, rather than Picture, Writer or Director.

I remember Ben Affleck winning Best Director and praising PTA, who wasn’t even nominated that year.
Ascension.

the old hollywood guard liked him. Boogie Nights and Magnolia got him nominations. Blood was one of the year's biggest films. Punch-Drunk Love was his only film that didn't overperform in that period but understandably so. The Master situation was just bad luck. Weinstein gave it an awful campaign, the Scientology aspect clouded it and then critics were more enamored with Amour that year. Affleck and Bigelow snubs go to show how wacky a year it was. But he was still WGA and BAFTA nominated. Inherent Vice pulled off the Screenplay nom nobody saw coming and then Phantom Thread did what it did.

Bradley Cooper won Toronto Film Critics Best Supporting Actor. Film was Picture and Screenplay runner-up (to Drive My Car)

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Bradley)
ORIG SCREENPLAY
BEST ENSEMBLE

to LICORICE PIZZA?

Makes sense.  The Georgia age of consent is 16.
