The failure of Everything Everywhere All At Once to be included on the Academy’s short lists for Visual Effects and Makeup & Hairstyling tells us that a serious percentage of Academy members aren’t fans of this A24 release, which suggests that support for it winning the Best Picture Oscar is a lot less than people think. (Yes, it might get nominated in that category.) If EEAAO was the juggernaut that its supporters believe it to be, it would have at least been included among the VFX and Makeup & Hairstyling shortlist nominees.

This is truly the happiest news of the day. I’m levitating off the couch. Thank you, God, for making my day…THANK GOD IN HEAVEN!
