Last year, we collectively dropped the ball when it came to predicting a Best Supporting Actress bid for Marina de Tavira (“Roma”).
Who could be the biggest surprise on Oscar nominations morning this year?December 21, 2019 at 6:29 am #1203246109
Jonathan Pryce (Best Actor) for The Two Popes and John Lithgow (Best Supporting Actor) for Bombshell give superb performances and if the academy stops acting like sheep they could make it in to their categories.December 21, 2019 at 7:25 am #1203246196

In line with the surprise nomination for Marina de Tavira, Asier Etxeandia would fill her slot beautifully this year. A relative unknown; actually giving a more thorough, direct and memorable supporting performance to a lead who is actually competitive in a potential Best Picture nominee. Not only would his nomination be deserved, but also a victory for diversity which is supposedly their prerogative nowadays. The first Spanish language performance nominee in 20 years, and first openly LGBT nominee in 19 years (Benico del Toro and Ian McKellen respectively). They’d better do the right thing instead of pandering to the Hollywood circle-jerk over and over again…
Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)December 21, 2019 at 11:04 am #1203246339

these are two old white men playing two famous white old white men. Not to dismiss the quality of their performances but if the Academy doesn’t nominate them it’s not because they were particularly sheepish. Sheepish is not acknowledging Us, The Farewell, cast of Parasite, etc.December 21, 2019 at 11:24 am #1203246356
I think we are underestimating Taron Egerton for Best Actor. He has SAG and GG noms, and BAFTA could increase his chances. Elton John is also a beloved icon, so that helps.
Oscars 2021: I support Denis Villeneuve (Dune), David Fincher (Mank), Willem Dafoe (The Card Counter), and Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy).

Us for Original Score
Just gonna echo Taron Egerton
I just love movies. And awards.December 21, 2019 at 12:41 pm #1203246433
The Painted Bird is harrowing with a hefty running time but I think it has a real shot at an International Film nomination. Being in black-and-white could set it apart in voters’ minds from the other two WWII-themed films on the shortlist, Beanpole and Those Who Remained, and those brave enough to stomach it will be very passionate about it.
