    LA Times awards journo Glenn Whipp just told me: “When I ran into Oprah recently, she thanked me for being the only expert at Gold Derby to put Queen Sugar in his Emmy predictions for Best Drama Series early on. Of course, I eventually took it out of my lineup, but she noticed when it was there.”

    Two days ago I got ambushed in a hotel elevator in Toronto by “Shape of Water” stars Octavia Spencer and Sally Hawkins gushing, “We love Gold Derby!” It was a very funny, awkward scene. Octavia was especially animated while we 3 yapped briefly, but she remembered to get off on the correct floor. Sally was so absorbed in our chitchat that she accidentally got left behind with me on the elevator. Ha! Much scrambling ensued while we tried to get everybody to their proper destinations.

    I just wish people would see more in Spencer’s Hidden Figures turn. It’s a brilliant turn and should have won her an Oscar.

    I prefer her Hidden Figures performance. But she didn’t need an Oscar for either performance.

    I love this site. Lots of opinions, yet very fun to discuss and make Dream or realistic predictions to such

    Octavaia Spencer always seemed like a fun celeb to meet in person so it makes me very happy to hear that she is like that in real life. 🙂

    ^^She might be the first African American actress to get 3 supporting nominations (Viola has 3 but for “The Help” she was in Best Actress).

    I would imagine Sally Hawkins didn’t get off the elevator in time. It fits her personality so well.

    It sounds like something her character in Happy-Go-Lucky would do.

    I love Octavia Spencer so much. No matter what film she’s in, she always gives a great performance.
