Oscar campaigning is well underway and, as previously mentioned, many contenders showed up at the Governors Awards as an opportunity to honour the Governors list recipients and get in front of Oscar voters. Among them – Cary Fukunaga, Idris Elba, and Abraham Attah representing Beasts Of No Nation. Netflix announced weeks ago that it would be putting significant resources behind the film. And, so far, its best hope is for Idris to receive a nomination for Best Supporting Actor with a longshot for Beasts to make it onto the list of Best Picture candidates. For Beasts, a nomination really would be a win. For the rest of us…
The fact that Cary and Idris will be a recurring presence during the season? Cutaways to them hanging out, popping Moet at the Globes?
This is good. This is very, very good.
