    Ok. Did anyone else here think that Jacob Tremblay’s acceptance speech last night at the Critic’s Choice Awards was the most adorable thing ever? Granted I’m kind of biased seeing as how he’s from my hometown. I think Sylvester Stallone and Mark Rylance should be VERY thankful that Tremblay didn’t get a nomination from The Academy because after that speech last night I think he would have had a good chance of pulling off the upset at the Oscars.

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    If they had campaigned Jacob in lead I think he would have Matt Damon’s slot. His speech was the best of the night by far. And his performance was the second best by a lead actor for 2015 (BC was the best). I really want him to win at SAG! (:

    Yeah, he should have gone lead, and then would/should have replaced Cranston or Redmayne.

    Admittedly, had he been nominated too, Room would be right up there as a formidable Best Picture alternative I think.

    If he was Globe nominated, I think Stallone still would have won, and if he got an Oscar nod, Stallone would still be pole I think, despite Tremblay being the main talking point from last night.

    Hopefully, his reception and speech last night will build momentum for Room as a whole at the Oscars. Also, if Brie gets Tremblay on stage with her for the SAG/BAFTA then that could cement her as the Oscar winner?

    Does this really warrant a thread?

          I think it’s warranted. The point I was making is that if Tremblay had received an Oscar nomination his speech at the Critics Choice might have helped him win at the Oscars over Stallone and Rylance who are the two favorites. We’ve seen in the past how speeches at awards shows can change the tide of an Oscar race. All that being said I respect your right to disagree with me.

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    This is such a myth. What’s an example?

    Poorly worded on my part. What I meant to say was that a great speech can help to solidify someone’s chances. A good example is Tom Hanks’ Best Actor Oscar win for Philadelphia in 1993. That year Anthony Hopkins won with the National Board and the L.A. Film Critics while David Thewlis had won with New York critics and The National Society. Then Tom Hanks wins at the Golden Globes, gives an emotional speech and suddenly people are saying: “There’s no way in hell he loses at the Oscars now.” Granted Tremblay was never the favorite as Rylance and Stallone split the precursor prizes amongst themselves however I think support for Room has been strong. In addition to it’s expected nominations for Best Picture, Actress and Screenplay it also scored a surprise nomination for Best Director; not a surprise to me as I had it in my predictions. Had Jacob Tremblay received a nomination he would have been my “way out there” prediction for this year because of the film’s support plus we are LONG overdue for a “Holy Crap” win at the Oscars. Granted upsets just don’t happen at the Oscars anymore but I think many people here predict at least one each year as evidenced by the 2-3% of people who choose films in fourth and fifth place on the racetrack odds. Vote splitting between Rylance and Stallone is also a possibility plus the Academy could have viewed Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay as a package deal; one doesn’t work as well without the other. Not to knock Brie Larson’s excellent work though. Any one who was on the fence over who to vote for could have been swayed by Tremblay’s speech simply because they wanted to hear another great speech at the Oscars. Oscar voters can certainly consider some interesting things when they fill out their ballots. 

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    He won in the best child actor category it’s not as though anyone else had a chance.
