Make your predictions here and discuss the winners
PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN- Picture, Director, Actress, ScreenplayJanuary 3, 2020 at 5:11 pm #1203258597
Do we know what time they’ll be announcing the winners?January 3, 2020 at 5:27 pm #1203258616
The Irishman and Parasite both maxed out here, which makes this a more meaningful Oscar simulation than the Globes or SAG in my books. Joaquin Phoenix is the only lock. Margot Robbie is a good bet in supporting actress for Bombshell and I could be way off, but I feel like AACTA kind of counts Charlize Theron as one of their own? Screenplay is almost anyone’s game.January 3, 2020 at 5:43 pm #1203258657
Phoenix is a lock
Robbie is a lock- She’s the australian that wins
Why they claim Theron as one of their own? lol
Supporting Actor- Pitt or Sang Kan Ho.January 3, 2020 at 5:56 pm #1203258675
Predicting Parasite, Bong Joon-ho, Phoenix, Zellweger, Pitt and Robbie for Bombshell. Screenplay is the most competitive but I’m feeling them going all in on Parasite so I’d guess it wins there too.January 3, 2020 at 7:38 pm #1203258762
Driver won Best Actor. Pitt in Supporting Actor.
Ronan in Best Actress.January 3, 2020 at 7:43 pm #1203258770
wtff! Driver won Actor. Ronan Actress. They really went south this year. lmfaoo.
I think Driver might translate though. I think he’s the critical sweep we’re underestimating.January 3, 2020 at 7:43 pm #1203258772
Driver winning an industry award with Joker overperforming and MS underperforming badly is a HUGE deal. Holy shit.January 3, 2020 at 7:47 pm #1203258776
Robbie won Supporting Actress. Jojo for Screenplay. Tarantino in Director. Parasite in Film.January 3, 2020 at 7:56 pm #1203258786
I think Driver and Pitt translates
Ronan is just random
Robbie was obvious since shs the australian.January 3, 2020 at 8:04 pm #1203258792
If anything, Saoirse’s win could be a sign for a BAFTA winJanuary 3, 2020 at 8:10 pm #1203258796
These just seem like a mess, but to be fair, AACTA is prone to seem like that, being so early, like when Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney began their sweeps while Willem Dafoe and Laurie Metcalf were still the frontrunners and then there was that year when they went six out of seven because they totally called the Birdman sweep that extended to screenplay and which we actually never clued into until it was too late.
There were some logic fails here. I get awarding Quentin Tarantino without Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but I do not know how you award Parasite without Bong Joon Ho. Joker has twice as many nominations as Marriage Story, even nominated over it in screenplay, but Adam Driver beats Joaquin Phoenix? Saoirse Ronan is just random. I do not know what to do with that and maybe there just is nothing to be done with it. I suppose that the biggest takeaway here is that Charlize Theron lost despite them loving Bombshell in the nominations and even giving it a win. Renée Zellweger and Scarlett Johansson can more easily recover from this.
Margot Robbie was expected. I have not bought into the Brad Pitt sweep, but I will now. This group awarded Mark Rylance. Taika Waititi is local-adjacent, so I will not put too much stock into that win; it says something that Jojo Rabbit had no other nominations, although I am not entirely sure what. I will take credit for two things that I have been saying all season: Parasite winning Best Picture and The Irishman not having passion and even being shut out here.
