Some FYCs from me as well: (I wasn't able to vote for some of them unfortunately but they are good shit and trying to make sure they aren't ignored.)
- Banderas, Almodovar, Etxeandia, Cruz for Pain and Glory - Russell, Brown, Harrison Jr, Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Ensemble for Waves (man this one got screwed over big time) - Awkwafina, Wang, Schuzen for The Farewell - Merlant, Haenel, Sciamma, Mathon for Portrait Of A Lady On Fire
- Safdies, Sandler for Uncut Gems big time
- Queen and Slim for Turner-Smith and Kaluuya
- A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood for Heller, Screenplay, Rhys and Hanks (who is supporting btw)
- The Nightingale everywhere (you guys are going to FYC the crap out of it I trust so I'll just leave it out here) - Don't let your feelings for Jojo Rabbit get in the way of McKenzie, Rockwell and ScarJo pls thx - Scanlen, Pugh, Ronan, Chalamet for Little Women - Entire ensemble of Knives Out (especially de Armas, Craig, Colette, Colette's dancing, Lee Curtis, Lee Curtis reacting to Colette dancing, Don Johnson, Shannon, Stanfield etc), and its Screenplay as well, don't miss it. - When voting for Parasite, please vote for the right supporting actresses if you must vote for only one or two: Park So-Dam, Lee Jeong-eun. Cho was great in her own right but she can't boil soup in front of them. Great if you vote for all three though.
- Russell, Brown, Harrison Jr, Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Ensemble for Waves (man this one got screwed over big time)
Amen! I hope quite a few seek this one out if they must only check out one. It's so worth it IMO - at least for the performances.
Also agree with almost all of your other FYCs except that Cho Yeo-jeong was my favorite of the Parasite cast so obviously going to go for her, but the rest of the cast is fantastic as well. Por que no los dos?!
Portrait of a Lady on Fire is like a must. Would love for you to check out Under the Silver Lake as well, but unsure if it'd be quite your cup of tea. If you can check out Greener Grass and/or Corpus Christi as well, I recommend it. I know at least Portrait and Greener Grass are on Hulu and Under the Silver Lake is on Amazon still I believe. Can rent Corpus Christi I believe, but not sure.

PLEASE watch Just Mercy before voting. Especially in a category as dire as adapted screenplay, the movie really deserves some love. It's so much better than you'd expect from the marketing (I was one of the first naysayers but I've been proved wrong) and features some tremendous performances esp. from Foxx and Rob Morgan but Jordan was on top of his game too, AND it made Obama's list so what more do you want??
