    His speech/appearance were just off to me- Is he really as solid of a frontrunner as people think he is?

    I agree, I think his speeches could hurt him.

    I think all the praise Denzel received tonight from several speeches, including Affleck’s, could help him overtake Affleck.

    Also, Gosling’s speech tonight was definitely unexpected and touching. I think it will secure his nominations, if there were any doubts before.

    He’s not the best speech giver but he’s humble and down to earth, it won’t hurt him. This race has been signed, sealed, and delivered for months but people are still struggling through the stages of denial, grief, and acceptance

    If he did something that will definitely give him backlash before the oscars, then Denzel wins. Remember the Russell Crowe 2002 award season incident?

    His acknowledging Denzel is beneficial for Denzel. Affleck would prefer not to have the pressure of expectation winning the big prize when he isn’t chasing it like his brother-in-law.

    The importance of speeches is overrated. I can give you a long list of people who delivered bad speeches and still won. I think this race is settled.

    I thought and hoped Matthew McConaughey’s rambling, self-important Globes speech would hurt his Oscar chances but sadly it didn’t. I don’t think this hurts Casey – he was humble, at least. The sexual harassment allegations, if made a big deal, would be the only thing to hurt him.

    Seems like a shy and a cutely awkward guy to me. It was obvious he wasn’t gonna be a charmer.  A less edgy version of Joaquin Phoenix.

    I don’t think he’s the frontrunner, but not because of  anything he’s done at award shows so far.

    Nice profile pic lol. I agree, and I am starting to think Paramount is the one putting this sexual harassment Stuff out there. It’s starting to become overkill like when the media was dead set on taking down Trump.

    Let’s not forget that he is only a frontrunner cause Denzel has won twice

    Mentions: Viola’s speech plus shoutouts from Barry Jenkins and ironically/awkwardly, Casey Affleck.

    Of course Viola is gonna give him praise in her speech, thats her co-star and director.

    I could see Denzel winning SAG because he is overdue there, if he went and won BAFTA then he would take the Oscar.

    While Denzel has won 2 Oscars, he has NEVER won the SAG award- despite being nominated for 4 acting honors from them. He could take his first on January 29th and if he does, it’s a race. I could see Fences doing strong – even pulling Best Ensemble (even though I think Moonlight has it).
