  1. Jake Ruefer

    These 3 have awesome chemistry! Just started watching this segment and I love it.

  2. Armando León

    This is the one category where I really, really hope A Star is Born doesn't get in, the screenplay was easily the worst aspect of the film. I have really high hopes for The Death of Stalin since Ianucci has gotten in the past and the script is undeniably brilliant.

  3. Ocean Sage

    Leave No Trace!

  4. Tampa Movie Guy

    I loved First Man.

  5. Shane G

    I like this show, but this ep being interrupted halfway through with an interview not so much. That's not what I watch FYC for, and the people who want that interview shouldn't have to watch FYC for it.

  6. Joel Bryant

    I love this show!

  7. Johnny Goodfellow

    This is becoming one of the best shows on Collider. Great panel, simple but interesting format, fun watch, thanks guys! Keep up the good work

    Imagine this for a Best Adapted Screenplay category:
    (out of 184 new releases seen as of this comment)
    — Annihilation
    — The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl
    — A Simple Favor
    — The Sisters Brothers
    — You Were Never Really Here

  9. Digital Bean

    I don't know how anyone can say A Star is Born is better written than First Man. ASIB has pacing issues, lost focus in the third act, and ends anticlimactically. Side characters were also underused (Sam Elliott and Dave Chappelle) and the sheer amount of F bombs was just silly.

  10. Kaleb Koho

    A Simple Favor should get a nom in this category

  11. Miles Edwards

    For me, A Star Is Born is almost a lock for an adapted screenplay nomination. It’s my best picture front runner and the best picture usually wins and almost certainly gets a screenplay nomination. Recently it’s gone away from that but I think it’s a safe bet for a nod.

    My List so far is:
    – A Star Is Born
    – Blackkklansman
    – If Beale Street Could Talk
    – Can You Ever Forgive Me?
    – First Man

    I’m also keeping a close eye on Widows, which I think could easily take out First Man.

  12. Scott Boswell

    Will you be covering Best Cinematography? Love this show!!

  13. Southern Gentleman


  14. Lucky Day

    Great interview Perri, always so present with the guests

  15. Lucky Day

    Can't get me enough FYC baby!

  16. Ruben Enriquez

    I really love this show! its awesome 👏 I can listen to Perri, sneider, and mantz talk about movies all day! keep up the great work🔥

  17. Shane Sher

    I'm surprised Scott didn't give Green Book an honorable mention

  18. Gavin48

    It will be
    1. BlacKKKlansman
    2. Widows
    3. If Beale street could talk
    4. A star is Born
    5. Can you ever forgive me?

    Black Panther, Paddington 2 and Death of Stalin could sneak in that 5th spot instead of Can you ever forgive me

  19. neil Varma

    I’m now in love with Debra Garnik. Amazing

  20. James Fox

    This is honestly the only show I watch on Collider outside of the schmoedown
