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.September 14, 2017 at 12:53 am #1202212368
Cool! People are reading us!September 14, 2017 at 1:06 am #1202212379
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.September 14, 2017 at 5:21 am #1202212474
Go Sally!September 14, 2017 at 8:17 am #1202212596
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. 🙂September 14, 2017 at 2:57 pm #1202213002
Damn! I hope both Octavia and Sally have read my articles! That would be amazing. 😀September 14, 2017 at 3:42 pm #1202213026
Here comes Spencer! Guess I gotta predict her now.September 15, 2017 at 1:46 am #1202213351
^^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.September 15, 2017 at 2:02 am #1202213358
Mike Leigh is very observant.
