So, of course the awards season has officially kicked off, as the big and small production companies are slowly sending out FYC (for your consideration) screeners and promos. Those already out include 'Disobedience' from Bleecker Street Pictures and 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' from Focus Features.
Of course the biggest FYC push right now, as you can see above and in the source link below, is Disney's 'Black Panther', which wants guild/Academy/BAFTA/etc members to recognize the movie in a fuckload of categories, including Best Picture, Best Director, and many more.
Other smaller companies who have revealed their FYC pages (which industry people and Academy voters know all about), include:
-- Focus Features: 'Tully'; 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?'; 'BlackkKlansmen'; 'Boy Erased'; 'Mary Queen of Scots'; and 'On the Basis of Sex' in various categories
-- Sony Pictures: 'The Front Runner'; 'White Boy Rick'
-- Bleecker Street: 'Colette'; 'Leave No Trace'; 'Disobedience'; 'What They Had'; 'McQueen'
The rest of the big companies will have their FYC websites updated throughout the fall, so stay tuned. If you've seen the buzz from the recent film festivals, you can guess what will get the biggest push.
