    I wish Robert James-Collier was being campaigned for his performance in Downton Abbey. has it ever happened that someone who has not been campaigned for at all by their studio has wound up with a nomination? RJ-C has given my favorite performance by an actor in 2019. I know it’s a million to one, perhaps more, but I can dream it!

    I am definitely expecting Dafoe, Pacino, Pitt and Pesci to be nominated. Probably Tom Hanks for the fifth slot…

    My thoughts as of now for the nominations:
    -Pitt
    -Pacino
    -Pesci
    -Hanks (still unseen)
    -Jojo Rabbit actors/Parasite actor/Alan Alda/Dafoe

    Having seen The Irishman, I would personally choose Pesci over Pacino. Some of his last scenes in the film were surprisingly heartbreaking to watch.

    I’m now expecting one of the Irishman actors or Hanks to take this. Their films will be peaking at the right times. I will say though, an actor from The Irishman will win only if one of them is nominated. If both are, then vote-splitting will prevent either from winning.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but does anyone think Joe Pesci’s chances might be hurt by the fact he is not doing any publicity or campaigning for The Irishman? 

    I don’t think Pesci will be forgotten, no matter what. His return to acting and one of the best turns of the year will make waves in the academy, campaign or not. Plus even if he doesn’t campaign personally, of course Netflix will push him.

    Also sorry for the double post, but I just saw FvF finally, and I am very surprised by the (very few) people predicting Tracy Letts. I mean really? He was good and had one great scene, but doesnt stand up remotely to the other powerhouses fighting for spots in this category. And in this crowded of a year? He has to be 10th at best

    There are always going to be people predicting every single person lol.

    Of course, but I think even Sasha stone at awards daily, maybe my favorite awards writer, was predicting Letts.

    Lettis was a fantastic scene steaner, but he doesn’t belong in any Top 5 supporting actor list. His performance was way too small and insignificant to the overall plot.

    Fuck the Grammys

    Has anyone seen Ford vs Ferrari? Christian Bale’s performance was amazing. I think he should be nominated.

    I thought he was over the top. Damon was better.

    The only non-campaigned person I can think of is Jennifer Tilly for Bullets Over Broadway. Her studio didn’t campaign her so she did it herself and got a nomination. The studio was pushing Diane Wiest and Tracey Ullman but not Tilly.

    Didn’t Melissa Leo also have to Campaign for herself for The Fighter?

    And Mo’Nique didn’t campaign for Precious. I remember her speech shading that.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Sam Rockwell is popular enough to break in. Whether Richard Jewell or JoJo Rabbit.

    Umm yeah, Sam Rockwell is not getting nominated… there are just a lot of better performances for him to get in… last year was a weak year in Supporting Actor but not this time around.

    If that’s true then I’m flummoxed that they would campaign Ullman over Tilly when the latter has a more significant role and performance.

    She didn’t have to but did anyway. That’s why it rubbed people the wrong way; she was in a likely top 3 Best Picture contender with a loud abrasive role and would have won anyway, it’s not like she needed to campaign just to get people to see her movie in the first place like Sally Kirkland in 1987.
