    Down with the performances by former nominees that always ride their buzz all the way to a nomination and don’t feel worthy years from now.

    Expanding on my thoughts here.

    Williams is the type of nomination we’ve seen many times before. I think a good comparison off the top of my head is Amy Adams in Vice back in 2018.

    Former multi-time nominees that have built an ‘overdue’ narrative from their multi-times being nominated. The film itself has the buzz it builds from its familiar beats (it’s ‘baitiness’). That actor gets buzz before the movie is even out or finished. When it’s released, they usually get good reviews, which doesn’t dismantle its potential for a nomination, because the only way to fail is if both the film underperforms, or the performance outright is seen as bad. They no longer win as the early year frontrunner, because they are ‘underwhelming’ once the film is actually seen, but still ride the surety of the buzz from way back before it was even seen.

    Williams is so that type of nomination, and it’ll go down in the future as one of those nominations that are ‘stereotypical’ for the Academy to recognize. What makes this one a harder pill to swallow, though, is the insistence of category fraud in the name of Williams’ stature as an overdue actress recognized multiple times in the lead category up to this point.

    Yes, there is a very apt discourse on the privilege of Riseborough’s position in getting this nomination, but I’m excited for what this holds for many performances in the years to come (next year, voting week is gonna be a mess if Twitter is still around lol), and I truly think we should focus our anger at the Williams nomination and what that speaks of than a performance that genuinely did a lot to be where it is today.

    I sincerely doubt Williams’ nomination comes from any passion whatsoever for the performance, and everything to do with pre-release buzz, her film, and her name.

    Ana de armas should not be there period. The film was not good. Ana has no range. She only does spy/action films which arent good.

    Nawwww…you mean the same POS Rolling Stone magazine that did not put Toni Braxton and TLC on their cover back in the 90s when they were slaying the music scene?? Please. Rolling Stone magazine is all about celebrating white mediocrity.
