The Farewell
Best Debut Feature

Her prior feature did not get domestic theatrical release so I believe this qualifies.

I don't have IMDb Pro, but what I can see on BoxOfficeMojo, this appears to be correct. We'll let pixote overrule us if we're wrong, but for now I will include it.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Want to catch up with that and One Cut Of The Dead before I wrap up the year, for sure. The Congress doc I have always assumed would get a nomination. Watched about 10 mins when it came out before tapping out, but will push through when it makes the Top 5, probably.

Best Line - "And if the main character’s a girl make sure she’s married by the end. Or dead. Either way."

Or is this the better line: “Women have minds and souls as well as hearts, ambition and talent as well as beauty and I’m sick of being told that love is all a woman is fit for. But... I am so lonely.” ?

Yours is the better line, pix, but I like both of them. Ronan's performance of her line is wonderful, and Letts' is as well.

Little Women

Best Adapted Screenplay
Best Actress - Saoirse Ronan
Best Supporting Actress - Florence Pugh
Best Ensemble Cast

(thirded all)

What can I say, I think the Oscars got it right. Might vote for it in Director and Picture, but not confident enough to FYC there. As for lines, I like the "main character" one better, the "I'm so lonely" one is more about Ronan's performance than it is about the line.

Have people caught up on Capernaum yet? Because that sorta needs to happen.
