    Best Actress is a bloodbath. It’s gonna be a race for the ages.

    Emmy and Academy Award Winner - Kate Winslet

    Updated predictions for this thread:

    1. Cate Blanchett
    2. Michelle Yeoh
    3. Danielle Deadwyler
    4. Michelle Williams
    5. Viola Davis

    At this moment, I only see Robbie disrupting this five. Dropping De Armas and Colman all together. Thoroughly unimpressed by Ackie (based on that trailer).

    This may be considered brave or stupid but I’m calling Blanchett, David, and Yeoh locks.

    I have my eye on Deadwyler.

    Just watched Blonde. I liked Ana de Armas quite a lot but whole movie is a huge NO. This is clearly not going anywhere.

    Just finished watching Blonde…. God it was awful! Most boring movie I’ve seen in a while, De Armas was good and Nicholson too but the cinematography got me an headache

    Just finished Blonde. Ana was actually amazing and you can tell she gave this role her all. She fell deeply into this character (I will say character because this is NOT Marilyn Monroe) and she did her best with what she could work with.

     

    The script was very odd and it’s hard to even rate it because it was nothing but mash-ups of porn and trauma. What did the director want us to say about this movie exactly? It makes no sense. There is no way this movie is getting in anywhere besides acting and it’s Ana. Even then I doubt the academy will throw her a bone with the controversy surrounding it. I would love to see Armas in another movie where she could give a similar performance in a similar setting because this ain’t it. The script was horrendous and all over the place and the concept was disrespectful.

    I couldn’t agree more! The actors were the only good thing about the movie, Director and screenplay didn’t work at all, it was just traumatic and not entreating.

    This is my current five too though I’m not sure if Michelle Williams made the right decision going LEAD so if Margot disrupts, Michelle would probably be the one………

    I watched Blonde too and simply, De Armas is amazing. No doubt about it, but simply, I can’t see Academy getting anywhere near it. And while she is amazing, she is not undeniable. This is where Venice could have played a huge factor. But the Jury awarded Blanchett. Which is very indicative given that TAR could have taken some other award, but no, they gave the Volpi Cup to Cate. They didn’t even go with Efira, if they wanted to stay home and not push some Anglo-Saxon actress which will start her tour from Venice. So, De Armas lost in Venice, but more importantly she lost to someone who is a strong (undeniable) contender for an Oscar.

    That said, De Armas is not on the level where Academy can overlook bad movie and nominate her. I doubt they will be doing that for Colman this year, let alone De Armas. So, yeah, for all intents and purposes, I think we can close that topic. No matter how much some would resurrect it.

    ***

    Who are you guys dropping to include her? My question is for those of us that already dropped her/never had her in to begin with. Who do you replace to include her in your 5?

    Probably Michelle Williams or even Viola Davis (less likely). I am more inclined towards Williams as she is borderline lead, and this is the year where her competition literally had movies made for them, or have entire movies centered around their performance. I can easily see Academy awarding “The Fablemans” and Spielberg, but giving acting award to someone else.

    I also wonder whether Davis will be able to keep momentum with “Black Panther” coming back in November, with powerful female story, franchise movie with a lot of emotions and cultural impact across the globe and with Angela Bassett in the role of grieving Queen Mother. I don’t think Bassett has big chances at the Oscar, but I think BPWF may shadow TWK.

    Yeoh and Blanchett are the Top 2.

    I don’t have any confidence in Jennifer Lawrence, her film seems too small and independent to get in.

    Jennifer Lawrence has more chances than Ana De Armas.

    Blonde is horrible, it’s disrespectful to Marilyn Monroe and her legacy.
