    Bitches let’s get this started, GoldDerby is way too calm! We’re in April!

    Of all the major known contenders up to this point I’m betting on Field, Rampling, Ronan, Blanchett and Lawrence but I’m pretty sure this list will change with the likes of Bullock, Streep, Vikander (if she goes Lead), Mulligan and Tomlin. I’m predicting Rampling and Field because I’m sure they’ll be critical darlings this season. That can change once the other big girls come to play. What do you think?

    Cate Blanchett for “Carol” 

    Jennifer Lawrence for “Joy” 

    Charlotte Rampling for “45 Years” 

    Meryl Streep for “Ricki and the Flash” 

    Alicia Vikander for “The Danish Girl” 

    Looks right enough to me for now, though that’s obviously pending Vikander’s category placement and Rampling’s film just being too subtle to compete with major studio noise. I’ll maintain the wishful thinking until proven otherwise.

    Sally Field will not make the final five come nomination morning. Her performance will not be enough. She is liked. But was never loved. Hence her lack of recovery from winning 2 Best Actress Oscars from 2 nominations. That third nomination had a narrative attached and it was in Supporting Actress.

    Winning 2 Oscars considered as being “loved” by the Academy. Just sayin’.

    Not necessarily, especially for the actors branch.

    Winning two Oscars means that you are loved. Period.

    There was obviously backlash to Field after her second speech, but her follow-up nomination 30 years later seemed to suggest that Hollywood was basically over it as long as she was doing work in projects up their alley. 

    This one feels a little too indie, though. I dunno.

    Yeah. I didn’t expect a proper argument by you.

    No love. By your rationale Swinton and Spencer are equals in the eyes of the Academy since both are one and done winners in Supporting Actress. I divide multiple winners for acting into two groups—legacy and non-legacy. The non-legacy people become pariahs after their second wins.

    If you win a freakin’ Oscar, you are popular. Winning two? You are extra popular. The Academy does love Swinton and Spencer the same way by my logic, but it doesn’t mean that they are equally good actresses or their careers are equally awesome. In the eyes of the Academy both are Oscar-winners, but they are hardly as popular as Sally Field or Meryl Streep.

    I heard Matt Damon plays the harmonica. Does that mean he’s voting for Streep?
