    Michelle Williams is a definite since her sweep for that limited series. She had the best acceptance speeches. Were it not for Viola she’d be an Oscar winner already.

    Everyone here knows how I feel about Glenn. Only thing I’m invested in this season.

    Close, Adams, and Williams seem to be the favorites to win their first Oscars.

    There’s only one answer to who should be the first winner from that list:

    (But I’m also rooting for Annette Bening, Amy Adams, Michelle Williams, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sigourney Weaver, Saoirse Ronan and Willem Dafoe to win someday)

    Clean TV sweep for a messy show including a TCA win and 50 Oscar baits lined up… White Michelle is coming, bitches. Underestimate her at your own peril.

    That’s why Cher’s Oscar is controversial. Sure, the other women in the category are stellar but Streep wasn’t winning a third so soon after her second. Kirkland was too much of an outlier to get any further than a nod with voters. Hunter and Close were the alternative to the Cher train. But they loved Moonstruck and knew they’d never have another opportunity to award her again.

    I just realised she’s playing Janis Joplin. Lol she’s (at the very least) so coming à la Zellweger, Malek etc.

    Perhaps she seems to make what she does look too easy and that’s why the Academy has taken her for granted all these years. I do agree it’s a crime she’s never won.

    I’d have preferred her to win for Dangerous Liaisons, a more interesting and multifaceted role.

    Jane Alexander is such an underrated and under utilised actor. I would love Hollywood to give her one of their reserved Meryl Streep roles someday so that she can finally win a well deserved Oscar.

    FYC:

    Best Actress: Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
    Best Actor: Anthony Hopkins (The Father)
    Best Supporting Actress: Ellen Burstyn (Pieces of a Woman)
    Best Supporting Actor: Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami)
