Well I'm happy because this gives it more time in theaters where it must be seen. Of course most people will now see it on screeners which I regret. They'll be only getting a small part of its impact. And as much as I like Moreno in the film I wish she hadn't been nominated(are there more nominees now? I don't keep up with these things.) I would like to see DeBose have a better chance. Really loved her in it. Tough to choose between Faist and Alvarez. Well at least they all get to have fun at the ceremony. Shouldn't there be nominations for things like musical scoring and conducting or do they not have these anymore?
And when does the original get a 4K? This is getting ridiculous that neither this nor the impossibly successful Sound of Music both filmed in 70MM have no release date when Oliver!, The Great Escape, and Navarone(all wonderful films but not nearly as successful) have it.
