    Well, the Critics Choice Awards have presented a very clear path if one wonders how the Oscars could find a way to snub Greta Gerwig’s film across all categories, even in ones where it’s considered a two-race head-to-head showdown.

    Actress: Ronan vs MacDormand
    Supp. Actress: Metcalf vs. Janney
    Orig. Screenplay: Gerwig vs. Peele

    With Picture and Director, LADY BIRD isn’t necessarily even in the top 2 for likely winners. I think it’s safe to say a Director award would be a surprise, though a Picture win is certainly more likely given the nature of the preferential ballot and the fact that its 3 other major competitors (SHAPE, GET OUT, BILLBOARDS) can be seen as more polarizing. But polarizing enough to benefit LB? Impossible to say.

    So anyone think LADY might go home empty-handed? Or even more bizarrely, it becomes the first film since MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY to only win one award, the top one?

    I’ve been saying for quite some time that Lady Bird could be a sleeper contender for Picture, as it’s always been bubbling right below the surface of whatever film is riding the ephemeral publicity wave at a given moment. I think, with the preferential ballot, we are due for another movie that wins Picture and nothing else. Will this be it? It’s too soon to tell.

    A shutout seems much more likely than 5 wins.

    The 3 categories Lady Bird has the best chances in are particularly difficult. Best Picture and Original Screenplay are the 2 categories where Get Out’s support will be strongest (as it will likely only have 2/3 noms outside of those categories), plus Three Billboards and The Shape of Water are still in the mix.

    Metcalf may be the film’s best chance for a win, but I think Janney’s taking it.

    Janney’s definitely taking it and I just don’t see the Academy giving BP to Lady Bird.

    Despite McDormand cementing her frontrunner status with every win, Ronan isn’t out yet. At BAFTA, the European factor could help her there.

    For Screenplay, I would say that the Original Screenplay battle is a three-way race between Gerwig, Peele and McDonagh. I think that considering how many nods Three Billboards got, the latter will probably win at BAFTA. At the WGA, that’s a tough one to call.

    In order of likelihood of win (1 being the most likely)

    1. Supporting Actress
    2. Original Screenplay
    3. Actress
    4. Picture
    5. Director

    The only major win I see for Lady Bird is Supporting Actress. I still think Metcalf is the frontrunner to win.

    SAG will determine Metcalf relevancy.

    My feeling is that if there’s some british that’s gonna upset McDormand, that will be Sally Hawkins.

    As much as I love Lady Bird, I think its Best Picture chances are over.
    * No Globe Director nom
    * No Bafta Best Film nom
    * No Critics Choice Awards at all (No film has ever won Best Picture without winning at least one Critics Choice award.)

    Given Ronan’s loss to Robbie last night, I don’t see Best Actress going to Lady Bird. Director looks like a lock for del Toro. As others have mentioned, I agree Metcalf could still be in the race if she wins SAG. If not, voters might want to give Lady Bird at least one award. If Lady Bird wins WGA, it could win Original Screenplay. I think Lady Bird’s best hopes as it stands now is: a Boyhood kind of night – sole win for Best Supporting Actress. Or a Juno kind of night – sole win for Best Original Screenplay.

    I agree but there’s one small problem. It’s  its Best Picture chances.

    I hope Metcalf wins this. She was brilliant. Janney was one-note.

    Thanks! I fixed the typo. Good catch.
