Do you think Dune will win best picture at the Oscars?

I Think it might because of villenauve and Chalamet predominantly.

Maybe. Maybe not. Last March who called Parasite for “Best Picture”? Who knew the movie even existed? My point being it’s so early in the year we have no idea what other contenders will be in the mix this winter.

Not likely. Genre film is not well received at the Oscars. Unless you count Shape of Water (which I think of as Fantasy), I think it would be unprecedented.

Not that the Academy Awards are usually very good for indicating the actual best movie of the year (Parasite maybe notwithstanding - that movie is the best)

I wouldn't bet on it, but it is possible.

We’re so far out, it’s difficult to say.

No one's even seen the movie yet. I don't see why it being directed by Villeneuve would somehow = best picture at the Oscars though. Dune seems like a longshot because not only is it sci fi which almost never wins best picture but its an adaption of a book that has already been made into movies/tv shows multiple times.

The chances of it being good are rather high given the people involved. That said, I will agree that it is not a genre the Academy tends to favour much. But you never know.

Impossible to say, but unlikely given prior history. The Academy isn't exactly enamored with Villeneuve, they've snubbed most of his quality films and gave him a pity nomination for Arrival, of all things.
