    It looks like McDormand could sweep up the Critics Choice Award, given she’s been scoring several other critics wins in the last week or so. If she continues to win the majority of them, she’ll be a comfortable frontrunner for the award, although Ronan, Hawkins, and Robbie could also win, perhaps even tying with her. Golden Globes seem tougher for her, but we’ll just to wait until the nominations on Monday to find out just how tough it will be. So Ronan and Robbie are definitely submitted in Comedy there?

    As for the win, I think Meryl has an excellent chance of winning, but I personally think it’s too soon, even though 6 years is a long time between wins. She’s just been nominated so much since then, avoiding snubs when many though she could/would be out of the race, that it just seems like this near certain nomination for The Post will be her reward again. She has the best chance of winning the Oscar since The Iron Lady though. And is the current frontrunner for the Globe IMO.

    McDormand needs two of the four top precursors to win(SAG/Globe, SAG/Critics Choice, Globe/BAFTA) to win: right now, I don’t see her winning without taking two races. Hawkins needs the Globe badly if she can go all the way, Streep needs SAG and/or BAFTA, Ronan will have to beat Robbie at the Globes and win at SAG or BAFTA to prevail. I really just don’t see Robbie triumphing this year, but at this point, nothing is clear yet. All we can do is to wait until more precursor awards come in.

    I saw I, TONYA last night and am seriously reevaluating Robbie’s awards chances. If Robbie defeats Ronan at GGs and at least gets the SAG nod, she could seriously win the Oscar. Robbie gives the Academy everything they love in an Oscar-winning performance. She de-glams, plays a real-life person, emotes, does her own skating, etc. I know her film isn’t a BP contender, but the movie is actually really good, too. It’s a movie about poor people and there are no heroes so that will be a bit of a turnoff for some voters. But Robbie is in this. Don’t sleep on her.

    PS – here’s my full review from the I, Tonya thread:

    I saw I, TONYA last night followed by a Q&A with Robbie and screenwriter Steven Rogers. This is a strong film overall. It’s crude, trashy, surprisingly violent and hard to watch at times, but this is essentially a very entertaining look at class in America. The story is engaging, the tone is funny and dramatic and the writing, directing and editing are quite effective. Honestly, the film only falters when it spends too much time on slapstick and minor characters. Still, all of the performers are great overall, but Margot Robbie is spectacular. I am really impressed with her range as an actress. She really does transform herself. The skating scenes are excellent. She’s droll, conniving, ferocious, vulnerable and even sympathetic. I flat out believe she’s Tonya Harding. When things fall apart toward the end, Robbie really emotes well and makes us feel for this flawed woman. And Allison Janney is the consummate scene stealer here. She’s funny, scary and deeply unlikeable. But she sells it. I won’t be surprised if Robbie and Janney end up winning the big industry awards for these roles. It won’t be easy, tho, since I, TONYA isn’t a prestige pic. But the film is solid and the performances stand on their own so don’t underestimate these ladies.

    Looks like McDormand, Streep, and Hawkins are all at the front of the pack in terms of getting nominated at this point- Ronan’s chances are looking stronger and stronger by the day as well; if she gets in at SAG and BAFTA, she should be a pretty solid contender. And Robbie’s chances are looking pretty good right now but she needs SAG badly. Anybody know if screeners for I, Tonya have been out long enough to assure Robbie gets in at SAG? What about Molly’s Game? Have enough people seen it to get Chastain nominated for SAG as well? And are all of these contender’s films eligible for BAFTA?

    Wouldn’t it be GREAT if it still wasn’t clear all the way to March??? I would LOVE it if we were all surprised! Most years it’s pretty clear who the four winners will be of the acting awards; last year the only suspense was Affleck vs. Washington. As much as I wished for Huppert – and predicted her – I knew in my heart they would give it to Emma Stone (who was excellent in La La Land, and was my second choice, but oh how I would have loved and cherished the memory of an Isabelle Huppert Oscar win!)

    I have increasingly been thinking that Margot Robbie could be the surprise winner this year… she needs the SAG nomination tomorrow but I really think her chance is as high as any of the other four! (I haven’t seen I, Tonya yet; the trailers and the fact that Margot Robbie is a young up-and-coming pretty actress that tend to win Oscars is why I think she has a real shot at the Oscar).

    I think Margot Robbie is a really good shot. The performance reminds me of the Charlize Theron win for Monster. Young actress early in her career deglams for an Oscar. There are several big Oscar moments in the movie. She also produced the movie so she may get points for that. Although she’s never been nominated, she’s been in high profile movies: Big Short, The Wolf of Wall Street. Even Suicide Squad is an Oscar winner!

    Plus, Best Actress tends to go to a movie that’s not in the running for Best Picture. As much as I admired the movie, I don’t think it has any chance at Best Picture.

    I’m pretty excited too, but don’t get your hopes up too high or you could be bitterly disappointed – If one contender wins G.G, C.C, and SAG, or if one contender wins two of those and then prevails at BAFTA, the race won’t be that wide open. Never underestimate the dullness of the Oscars taking hold after the precursors happen.

    As much as I loved Margot in I, Tonya (she’s my #2) I don’t want to see her winning. I’d despise her win more than I despise Stone’s win. I’m done watching another hot young bimbo winning. Enough with this shit already. Dear Academy, you want to fuck someone? Get yourself an escort.

    I think yeah margot robbie stands a chance but i think Saoirse is slowly becoming quite the underdog besides she is a two-time previous oscar nominee and this might be her time. Margot isn’t a previous oscar contender so the nomination is enough for her she has a best shot next year as Queen Elizabeth.

    I believe Sally Hawkins will win. I’m keeping her there until I see otherwise.

    McDormand versus Ronan. I pray Ronan pulls through since she’s a previous multi nominee without a win.

    I still think Hawkins is winning as well… I just dont see McDormand winning again. Now, Ronan and Robbie could upset as could Streep. So basically anyone could win (lol), but I’m still betting on Hawkins… This is an exciting race.

    I saw I, Tonya last night. Margot Robbie is incredible in it. The amount of work she put into this role is very evident. She completely nailed Harding’s mannerisms, personality, and way of speaking. I think it’s possible that Robbie could pull off an upset win at the Oscars. While I haven’t seen The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, or The Post, I can say that I would prefer Robbie winning the Oscar over Ronan. While I absolutely loved Lady Bird and thought Saoirse Ronan was fantastic in it, I feel that Robbie’s portrayal of Harding is a performance which will be remembered for a long time, similar to how Charlize Theron’s performance in Monster has been remembered.

    Ronan will win SAG and BAFTA… and the Oscar.

    Still feel like this is going to be Streep, Hawkins, or McDormand. Just a gut feeling
