Default Netflix's potential oscar contender "Mudbound"



Quote:
Emmy powerhouse Netflix releases its Oscar contenders on the same day in both theaters and online. It took that approach two years ago with the critically acclaimed “Beasts of No Nation.” While the SAG Awards embraced this gritty look at child soldiers, it was spurned by academy voters. This year, the streaming service snagged a strong awards hopeful at Sundance, when it paid $12.5 million for distribution rights to Dee Rees‘s “Mudbound.”

The director, best known for “Pariah,” worked with Virgil Williams to adapt Hillary Jordan‘s acclaimed novel of the same name about a WWII vet (Jason Clarke) who moves with his wife (Carey Mulligan) to rural Mississippi. They befriend an African American vet (Jason Mitchell) and his wife (Mary J. Blige) who work as sharecroppers. Netflix plans to promote the picture in the fall with a slew of events geared to awards voters before it premieres on the streaming service.

Looks pretty good to me.

Really looking forward to this one. I was really impressed with Jason Mitchell in Straight Outta Compton and have been hoping he'd get some interesting roles.

I'm also looking forward to this movie. I'm glad to see this is getting so much good buzz and I'm very curious to see Jason Mitchell's performance. He was great in SOC and he proved to me in Kong:Skull Island that definitely has enough range to be a pretty versatile actor.

Unlike Amazon, Netflix goes out of their way to not treat their movies like movies and they will never gain the respect or recognition from the Academy.

It's great to see Jason Mitchell get roles like this. Hopefully it can grab the Academy's attention.

I thought this was really well done. The only actor I had an issue with was Jason Clarke, he just wasn't up to the level everyone else was at.

An exceptionally made period drama with some career best performances from Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell. I'll be very interested to see if this can maintain enough steam going into Oscar season, because it definitely deserves the attention. From the gorgeous cinematography to the lavish production design, this is truly the type of old fashioned sweeping Hollywood epic they just don't make anymore and I admire the hell out of it.

8/10

Finally screened this. It's really good.

It's so weird this is the most accessible movie to watch but no one is really buzzing about it. I mean audiences. Like this thread is pretty dead and I don't see much audience buzz anywhere else

This won't get any major nods. I can already tell.
And it's crazy w/ how political things get this movie has a predominately black cast, a black lesbian as the director, co written by a black lesbian, scored by a black woman, a woman cinematographer, and the whole thing about the movie is racism...if it wasn't for Netflix the Academy would've eaten this up

I'm really hoping the Academy can get over themselves to show this the respect it deserves, but I'm not optimistic.

Yeah I don't think so either.

I think the only one who will be able to do it will be Scorsese. If The Irishman delivers on quality than theres no way they'll lock it out of the Oscars.

Netflix format really hurts its chances at a deserved cinematography nom.

Black Stuff works always. On the top it has a female director. Im sure it has some nominations.

I mean, Scorsese was the original Leo before he finally won, so who knows? They could always fall back on ignoring him again

I haven't seen it yet. But, from the rumors I read, the problem is that Netflix isn't really pushing for much recognition from people like the Academy compared to say, Amazon Studios. Netflix is who you go to if you just want something made.

I keep hearing a lot of positive buzz about this film, but have yet to see if it'll be playing in my area. My hope is that, like Beasts of No Nation, that this eventually appears in theaters and gets some sort of at least limited release.
