    Do you think if Nocturnal Animals preforms well this awards race that it could cause vote splitting with her Arrival performance causing her to knock herself out of the category completely?

    Does anyone think she will actually get in for Nocturnal Animals over Arrival?

    Also the rule you can only be nominated once per category is so dumb.

    I’m skeptical Nocturnal Animals leaves much of a dent this awards season, beyond perhaps Shannon and also maybe Ford in Screenplay, so no.

    No. It’s not an Academy movie. Hype from her performance in it will only help her chances for getting in with Arrival.

    I think you guys are being a little too dismissive of Nocturnal Animals. I will agree (sight unseen, full disclosure) that it does not seem like the film is going to gain much traction with the academy but let’s not forget that Ford’s former film netted a best actor nom for Colin Firth – his films are on the radar. There will certainly be some voters who will prefer her work in Nocturnal Animals to Arrival. More pressingly, the reviews I have read have, for the most part, praised her performance equally in both – not really elevating one above the other. Instead of this being a classic case of one performance boosting another “sure thing” performance” to a nom ala Ex Machina and the Danish Girl – I feel that this may lead to a vote split where some of Adams support is siphoned off. In an average year this may not matter much, but as the Best Actress race is so tight, any mitigating factor has to be carefully considered. I still think her chances are good but I do not currently predict her for a nom – I have her in about 8th position.

    Bening
    Huppert (believe me, this is happening)
    Chastain (gut feeling, full explanation in the best actress thread but I admit could easily fall off)

    Nocturnal Animals is Razzie-worthy, and so is everyone involved.

    REALLY?! How so? I haven’t seen it, and am worried it will be pretentious trash. PLEASE give me your most detailed review of why Nocturnal Animals is really RAZZIE-bad, and I ask not only a Goldderby predictor, but as an actual Razzie voter myself! 😉

    She could easily lose the nomination due to a split vote. Either way, shes not winning anything.

    Well, if you’re a voter, see it for yourself. It’s almost as if Ford is trying to tell us “please forgive me… I know I’m a hack…” and then goes on to deliver the emptiest film of 2016.

    Amy Adams is top billing on Nocturnal Animals right? So she can’t just try and put this performance in supporting and pretend Jake Gyllenhaal is the lead.

    Well, they’ve invested some serious monies in this film, making sure it is seen. And it is Amy, who appears to not be a liability to any film she’s in.
    I happen to like Tom Ford, even though he is a neophyte comparatively speaking.
    Still, I am a far bigger fan of Denis Villeneuve, for strictly subjective reasons.
    I’m not ready to dismiss Nocturnal quite yet, since there appears to be some ‘belief’ in this project backed up by dollars. Plus, although it could be changing (many thanks, George Miller), rooting for a sci-fi can be like bashing one’s Oscary head against a blue screen.
    I guess we’ll see.

    Arrival currently holds a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and every review highlights the strength of Adams’ performance. Clearly the Academy loves women in strong roles in science fiction (Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, Sandra Bullock in Gravity, etc.), and I have no doubt Adams’ team will focus the primary bulk of her awards campaign on this film. Plus, Denis Villeneuve has only broken through slightly at the Oscars in the past with Prisoners and Sicario. This could finally be the chance for one of his films to be nominated across the board everywhere.
