Prior to this year’s Emmys, I correctly predicted that Jon Hamm would win and that he would receive a standing ovation. This year’s Oscars are a bit tougher. Do you foresee any potential Oscar winners receiving standing ovations?November 5, 2015 at 1:48 am #197306
If Leonardo DiCaprio wins, then he will get a standing ovation, Samuel L. Jackson would get a huge standing ovation if he were to win in Supporting.November 5, 2015 at 2:11 am #197307
Based on combined GoldDerby predictions (Top 10 in each category)
Would – Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Caine, Tom Hanks, Ian McKellen
Might – Johnny Depp, Matt Damon
Would – Cate Blanchett, Lily Tomlin, Maggie Smith
Might – Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling
Best Supporting Actor:
Would – Michael Keaton, Samuel L Jackson, Robert DeNiro, Jacob Tremblay
Might – Idris Elba, Mark Ruffalo
Best Supporting Actress:
Would – Kate Winslet, Jane Fonda
Might – Jennifer Jason Leigh, Diane LaddNovember 5, 2015 at 3:19 am #197308
DiCaprio and perhaps Michael Keaton if he won Supporting.November 5, 2015 at 5:23 am #197309
DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Michael Keaton and possibly Jennifer Lawrence all have a chance to get standing ovations if they win. I don’t think any contenders in other categories would get one except for composer Ennio Morricone if he wins for The Hateful Eight, or maybe Roger Deakins for Sicario (but I very much doubt he’ll win for that).November 5, 2015 at 5:35 am #197310
How often do Oscar audiences give standing ovations?November 5, 2015 at 6:11 am #197311
This is a bit early isn’t it?November 5, 2015 at 7:21 am #197312
In order of occurrence:
When Lubezki wins his third Oscar in a row, everyone will stand up.
When Haynes wins Best Director, everyone will stand up.
When DiCaprio wins Best Actor, everyone will stand up.
When Carol wins Best Picture, everyone will stand up.
If, somehow, Russell and Joy win BD and BP, everyone will stand up but not to clap–instead they’ll leave the theater.November 5, 2015 at 7:27 am #197313
Nobody will stand up for Lubezki. If they were to stand up for Lubezki, Roger Deakins would have been an Oscar winner by now. They don’t care. They didn’t stand up for the late Conrad L. Hall, so forget about Lubezki.
DiCaprio would get a standing ovation.
Larson is sooo popular now that a standing ovation is extremely likely.November 5, 2015 at 7:52 am #197314
Just a few I can see happening:
DamonNovember 5, 2015 at 1:28 pm #197315
In recent years I’ve noticed most actors tend to get standing ovations (usually 3 out of 4). The person who doesn’t get a standing o is usually the supporting actor or actress that is announced first. I’d have to go back and get the statistics but often times I think that has more to do with the placement in the show than the performance. For instance Jared Leto didn’t get one yet it was a pretty universally acclaimed performance and as popular as McConaughey or Jennifer Lawrence who got standing ovations.
I sort of think people are more tense and focused on themselves at the beginning and less likely to stand.
Also I think it matters where you sit. If you are in the first row you get to the stage pretty quickly (as Leto did) you don’t ususally get an ovation.
and one other observation: the best actor almost always gets a standing ovation, the best actress, not always.November 5, 2015 at 1:35 pm #197317
I know you guys love her here but seriously? There’s no way Lawrence would get a standing ovation… unless she starts talking how much ‘underpaid’ she is. LOL!
The only people I can see getting SO are: Ridley Scott, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Lily Tomlin and Maggie Smith. And if she campaigns her ass off Queen Charlotte.November 5, 2015 at 1:43 pm #197318
No Sasha. They stand for lots of people. They stood for Octavia Spencer and she was barely even known to people prior to The Help. (and they stood for Lawrence the first time) but I don’t think there is any chance she will get another award this year.November 5, 2015 at 1:59 pm #197319
They stood up for Lawrence only because she fell, even she acknowledged it. And they stood up for Spencer (although it took them some time) because she’s worked with almost everybody in the room and for some other reason… wink wink.
