Oscar Predictions: Spoiler Alert

Spoiler Alert is out in limited release December 2nd with a nationwide expansion the following week. It’s based on the memoir of journalist Michael Ausiello as he recounts his boyfriend Kit’s battle with cancer. Jim Parsons plays Michael with Ben Aldridge as Kit. Costars include Sally Field and Bill Irwin. Michael Showalter, maker of The Big Sick (which received an Original Screenplay nod) and The Eyes of Tammy Faye (which won Jessica Chastain her Best Actress Oscar last year) directs.

The first handful of reviews are out and Spoiler currently has a 40% Rotten Tomatoes score. Parsons, of course, is an Emmy and Globe recipient for his small screen role on The Big Bang Theory. Like his other big screen starring role in 2020’s The Boys in the Band, don’t look for this to play to awards voters. And that’s not revealing too much to make that projection.
