Remember that Jeff Sneider tweet from last July that predicted some kind of anti-Green Book vote would manifest in 2020 Oscar voting? Sneider was wrong about Queen & Slim and Just Mercy but he was also saying that an anti-older-white-guy pushback vote would emerge down the road.
I’m mentioning this because a friend said this morning that there’s a feeling among industry fence-sitters that the industry has to somehow make up for giving Green Book the Best Picture award last year. Somehow that “wrong” has to be balanced out with a counter-vote. Call it the Green Book guilt-pushback factor. Or, if you will, the “Bob Strauss will forgive you if you vote to somehow make up for that calamitous error.”
Is this real or just grapevine bullshit?
