    VIOLA made a strategic move that will definitely and finally earn her an Oscar. She will now be competing in the supporting actress category along with Michelle Williams and possibly Naomi Harris along with few other women campaigning for the nomination.

    Here’s the link:

    To be honest Best Actress category is very brutal this year. I’m glad she went Supporting and I’m sorry for Michelle Williams right now. Her chances of winning just came to a shocking end because of Viola.

    I’m annoyed.

    But she has “The Personal History of Rachel Dupree” coming…..which sounds like a Oscar Vehicle

    People moaning about this – but what do you want?

    You’d be pissed if Davis went Lead, but gave a supporting performance, yet are pissed she’s gone Supporting because she’s an actress worthy of a lead nod?

    Pick a side, and stick to it! By the way, the second argument is incredibly weak – an Oscar is a sodding Oscar!

    Only watching the movie we’ll know if it’s category fraud or not…from the trailer she looks supporting to me.

    I was hoping Naomi Harris would win for Best Supporting Actress, and Viola Davis for Best Actress. In my dream within a dream.

    Harris still has a shot at BAFTA. Davis’ coronation unlikely to be a straight sweep through the precursors.

    Why? Bafta hardly ever breaks away from sweeps.

    An opportunity to recognize a homegrown talent having a breakthrough.

    What if the Oscars put her in Lead like they did with Kate Winslet?

    Maybe they could think: hey maybe we could just place Viola in Lead, give the lead Oscar to a Black Actress so people won’t complain for a some years about a black actress not winning Best Actress.

    That happened in a weak Best Actress year. And Winslet was going to win anyway, even with her role in Revolutionary Road.

    I wouldn’t put too much into that. If Viola were to win critic choice, Globe & SAG, I doubt BAFTA would hesitate to go her way as well. Especially, because this is supporting. Lead would be another matter entirely, as they’ve NEVER honored a woman who looks like she or Naomi…

    Having not seen Fences yet, I don’t know the size of her role at all, but lets say that Davis is campaigning in supporting actress, that doesn’t mean the academy won’t put her in lead if they consider the role a lead role. Winslet was campaigning for supporting for The Reader and they stuck her in lead. Of course over recent years the academy is a push over and the put people where they are campaigning anyway…Vikander last year for example.

    Ruth Negga has the black slot in Best Actress.
