    Should she exclude him from acceptance speeches?

    I don’t think it will affect her chances, because it will be forgotten by the time nominations come around. It will have more of an effect on the film’s chances, because it’s easier to separate actors in a film, but Baldwin was crucial to the movie as a whole.

    Baldwin already has a  dubious “image”, and as an individual, he can be seen as someone with a questionable character at best. But, this is irrespective of his skill as an actor, and how anything he has said translates into negative consequences for the worth of the movie, which is a seperate thing, is a bigger leap.
    Afterall, he’s an impulsive individual who has ass-holic moments, and not say, a Military Industrial Complex of liars and hawks trying to fool us all.

    Baldwin does something like this every single year and he always wins the SAG Award.

    Alec Baldwin has definitely sold his soul to the devil for fame.
    He is a miserable individual who clearly has mental issues
    and is too arrogant and self-centered to seek help..
    He has troublesome issues all the time and yet has been awarded many
    Television awards…and even that undeserved oscar nomination..
    He cant hurt Cate’s chances at all…he cant hurt Woody’s chances at all…
    Although he is in Blue Jasmine, IMO, he gave his usual smug performance anyway
    and many finer actors wouldve been better..

    i have met this man..and IMO< he is not a credit to the industry..
    Someone should finally boycott against hiring such a small-minded man..

    They won’t affect her season at all… Cate is extremely classy and as much as she’ll be pushed to campaign I don’t see her changing her attitude due to specificities like that or the fact that she’s so far ahead of the rest of the pack. She’ll thank Alec in every speech.

    Zero. No effect whatsoever. I’m confused as to why/how the thought would even occur to anyone.

    This is so weird. Why would they affect Blanchett?

    Plus, we all know Baldwin is controversy-proof in awards shows. He has been saying shit and doing terrible stuff for basically every season of 30 Rock, and it hasn’t stopped him to win two Emmys and seven SAG awards. This one affect anyone, even though Baldwin is a huge jerk.

    It took me a few moments to realize what was being asked in this thread…

    It won’t affect anything. I actually thought Baldwin was really good in the movie, and played off Blanchett really well. But that’s beside the point. The incident will be long forgotten when nominations roll around.

    Blue Jasmine has a good chance of winning the SAG ensemble award. This might have a slight impact there, but nowhere else.

    Baldwin has some kind of mental illness, I doubt this will affect her chances.
