    This was quite the shake up! But, will this category change affect there Oscar chances or like Zeta-Jones will either Mara or Vikander still have a chance to win. With two empty spots who most benefis? My guess is Rachel McAdams will benefit she’s in the Best Picture front runner and unlike all her male costar she has no one from her own movie to compete against. Unfortunately for Vikander is probably the one this will affect and probably lessen her odds of being nominated. Mara is a past Best Actress nominee and she won at Cannes so she’s probably the most likely to rebound from this set back. Who do you think this most affects? Who benefits from their misfortune?

    Rooney Mara is in a better position, I think. Her film is gaining more traction than The Danish Girl and she is a previous Globe nominee. Although there could be a vote split between Mara and Cate Blanchett, allowing someone more outside the realm like Charlize Theron or Emily Blunt to sneak in. Honestly, I wasn’t even confident in Vikander’s chances in Supporting. So, I don’t know how she’ll fare in Lead.

    I think Kate Winslet will get a big boost from this as I think both of Vikander and Mara will get pushed to lead.  I think Mara would get in, Vikander wouldnt.  I think if JJL is a standout and really strong in TH8, then she would win the Oscar.   If not, I think it’s Winslets.  I think the category would end up being Winslet, JJL, Fonda, Allen, McAdams/Banks

    Jennifer Jason Leigh is most happy because it means she’s getting a Golden Globe guaranteed.

    I think Leigh and Winslet are the only locks for Supporitng Actress at the Globes. McAdams is safely in third. But I could see the other two slots going in all sorts of directions.

    Right now, I’m thinking Chastain and Mirren will round out the top five. The HFPA loves both. Lead Actress Drama is much too crowded for Mirren to get in for Woman in Gold, so this is her only shot. With The Martian set to shine the brightest at the Globes, there’s no reason to exclude Chastain.

    The big question mark I have is Kristin Stewart. Globe voters love young Hollywood it-girls, typically getting in here first and/or getting in here but nowhere else. And McAdams has that slot, due to the support of her film. If MIrren stumbles just a hair in Trumbo (no buzz, nothing to the performance), I will swap out her and Stewart. If Stewart is getting in one of the main five televised awards shows, it’s here.

    1. Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight
    2. Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs

    3. Rachel McAdams, Spotlight

    4. Jessica Chastain, The Martian
    5. Helen Mirren, Trumbo

    6. Kristin Stewart, Clouds of Sils Maria

    Cate Blanchett, Cinderella
    Meryl Streep, Suffragette
    Tilda Swinton, Trainwreck
    Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina

    Vikander should be this year’s ‘Felicity Jones’ she’s practically the star of the movie.

    Mara on the other hand will be up against her co-lead, Blanchett theres a little chance that both actresses are getting in, in fact they could split the vote and NEITHER will get in, yes that is ENTIRELY POSSIBLE, anything can happen at this point. 

    But does it mean that Vikander and Mara might go LEAD in SAG and Oscars too?

    For SAG they will both be in supporting.

    The Globes wanted a new face every year so my bet in the OPEN SEASON Supporting Actress Race would be:

    Kristen Stewart
    Rachel Mc Adams
    Elizabeth Banks
    Jennifer Jason Leigh

    Veterans like Winslet, Fonda and Chastain could fight into getting the last spot.

    I think Vikander is hurt most since her film was a flop anyway and she isn’t a big name. Those who benefit are all the Jackie Weaver type coattail nods in strong BPs like Joan Allen Rachel McAdams and Diane Ladd.

    What on earth?! The Danish Girl hasn’t even opened and it’s a flop?! What the hell is going on with the common sense on this site these days. How can a movie be flop without making a cent due to not playing in a single theater?! Mara and Vikander are going to do well no matter what category they are in. Vikander is the Chastain of the year with the amount of well reviewed performances in one year all being wrapped up into one movie which will be The Danish Girl. She got glowing reviews out of Telluride. This pre hate for Danish Girl and Joy is starting to really bug me. They’ll have the last laugh when they earn tons of noms

    Vikander is going to get snubbed. And Mara will be nominated alongside Blanchett, Ronan, Larson and probably Blunt.

    As of the supporting ladies..

    Winslet
    Leigh
    Fonda
    McAdams
    Stewart

    Alt: Banks / Walters / Allen,

    Alicia Vikander could benefit the most, and if they decide to push her Lead, she could ultimately get the Lead nomination. [ 3 actresses vying for that Top 5 have narratives(Rampling, Ronan, Larson), so they won’t be bumped for anything. And then there’s Lawrence and Blanchett.Rooney Mara doesn’t have a narrative. For a win one day yes, but not now. Carol has Cate Blanchett, she is at the forefront of all publicity and campaign tactics. Best Actress is too crowded for two leads from one film to get in.The one thing that sticks with people from The Danish Girl is Vikander. Great year, revelation of the year and rising star, and the stand-out in Hooper’s important period drama. That’s a narrative right there.

    Well, first of all, The Danish Girl is *not* getting a ton of noms. I saw it last night and I can almost guarantee any Academy voter over 50 will walk out or turn their screener off about a 1/3 of the way in. There’s one scene in particular that will be the last straw. Hopefully Queen Vikander will have done enough by then to impress upon them the need to nominate her though.

    Politically, you like it or not, “The Danish Girl” is a good choice for them. And they are going to show their support for the film in many significant categories.

    Best Picture
    Best Actor
    Best Supporting Actress
    Best Adapted Screenplay
    Best Costume Design
    Best Original Score
    Best Production Design
    Best Makeup/Hairstyling

    It can really do well.

    Also calling something “flop” which has 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, is pretty lame. So Kyle has the point. It’s not a flop by any means. Yes, it’s not critically acclaimed, but it is praised just enough to make a huge impression on the Academy voters.

    Dismissing any film that has pretty positive reviews and will be a factor for acting nods at this stage is quite naive. Three films have yet to be seen at all that many are pinning hopes on. If any really don’t hit it, then there’s an open space.
