    Of course but let’s not forget about the first woman of color to star as the lead in an MCU movie

    I can’t see how Lee Isaac Chung will be nominated for Director if Minari wasn’t even shortlisted for Best Film.

    Best Film’s longlist was voted by the membership, while Director and Acting categories had a hand of the jury. The jury will make sure Chung will be nominated.

    Why do you think Judas and the Black Messiah also missed Best Film despite being longlisted for Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress ?

    Director is a juried award. Best Film isn’t.

    Perhaps our slugfest can help!

    Not really. Casting is an award that goes to the casting director of a film for their work whilst ensemble goes to the performers of a film for their performances.

    Case in point last year The Two Popes was nominated for Casting and Joker won Casting. Neither were nominated at SAG for ensemble and both essentially had to cast 1 to 2 people to do anything.

    With Casting what I would look out for are adaptations of popular texts, films with unknowns and newcomers and biographical dramas. So watch out for those and also for MinariPromising Young Woman and Saint Maud. Each of those could happen too.

    Thanks for the explanation. I think I have a pretty good mix of those so I think I’ll leave them as is. I have ONIM, Trial, Minari, Rocks & Saint Maud. I hope putting Rocks and Saint Maud in bascially everywhere won’t bite me in the ass. Slightly hope-dicting because I thought Saint Maud was really frightening and especially Morfydd Clark gave me the chills with that performance.

    Only here to say Wunmi Mosaku’s performance in His House is wonderful and easily deserves to be nominated at BAFTA’s (and the Oscars also but we all know it’s not happening)

    Very intrigued to see what happens here with Olivia Colman. She is certainly in the top 3 at the Oscars for the win and if it was the acting branch deciding the nominees she’d be an absolute lock (they love her to death). However we have a jury here and this performance isn’t one that is particularly showy or loud. It’s no doubt an excellent performance and the dramatic weight of it, the fact it’s the only prominent one outside of Hopkins’ and the added poignancy of the role all play in her favour. However I keep thinking back to how with the jury system with the BAFTA TV awards she was snubbed for a similarly subtle performance (although she has more to do in The Father than she did in The Crown). So I wonder if BAFTA juries are either fatigued by Colman and feel that she’s crossed over from the “seasoned homegrown dramatic performer” to the “world renowned dramatic actress” stage of her career for if the bar has been raised higher for her.

    That Supporting Actress category in itself is interesting. I can see anyone apart from Yuh-jung Youn and Jennifer Ehle miss.

    Absolutely loved the slugfest. Great discussion of the new system and super thought provoking for finalising my predictions
