It's been the same line-up for months now. So I'm certain this will not be the case. But the question is who could be left out?
Lonergan could miss, as his work, while exceptional, is a work of subtle gestures that I'm (pleasantly) surprised remains in the conversation. Jenkins, too, could miss, if only for how esoteric and quote unquote artful the film looks; I could imagine someone like Theodore Melfi diverting potential votes for Jenkins monumental work.
Or perhaps Larrain? Like Jenkins, you could possibly question the artfulness of his approach as a detriment, but I dunno - Fox Searchlight is hustling out there for him.
And well, it couldn't possibly be Scorsese.. right?
