    They should just scrapped this award… always goes to the British regardless.

    Yeah, that’s why Leonardo DiCaprio (American) won in 2016, and Casey Affleck (also American) won in 2017.

    The Dunkirk girls really tried it with these last minute prayer circle antics. I guess it maxes out at 2 Oscars. I guess 3B is back on the board since it won a similar voting style, but oh the stink pieces a comin’. Original screenplay is still Get Out’s. Cool that the acting winners sweep the big ones. I’m not in the awards game for surprises. Y’all should know better, but whatever. Final stretch!

    Curious, since I respect you so much as an awards predictor, from this point on what would convince you that Three Billboards will beat Get Out for Original Screenplay at the Oscars? Is there anything at all? Don’t you think Billboards would have won WGA if it had been eligible? Get Out’s WGA win reminds me of Inception and Grand Budapest winning, when the Globe winning and soon-to-be Oscar winning scripts weren’t eligible there. All the WGA did in my book is confirm what film will come in 2nd place at the Oscars for Original Screenplay, just as they did those King’s Speech and Birdman years.

    I too love to see some genuine consensus on the 4 acting winners for once, and for such genuinely deserving performances as well! I would prefer DDL over Oldman on merit, but Oldman deserves it way more for delivering solid work as Churchill, and especially for his career up until this point. DDL already has 3, so he is more than taken care of.

    Riley’s point in the other thread on how Oscar voters love high concept films is one. My main one is that they aren’t letting the critically acclaimed film of 2017 go home empty handed. It’s too important and 3B got two acting wins on lock and a possible BP win, so it’ll be well rewarded.

    @eastwest As confident as I am in Billboards, I still have Get Out in 2nd for both Screenplay and Picture. Better safe than sorry.

    Also, Lady Bird’s Rotten Tomatoes score is the same as Get Out’s, right? Doesn’t the Gerwig film even have a higher Metacritic score, as does the McDonagh film? Is Get Out critically acclaimed, yes. Is it the MOST critically acclaimed film of the year? That’s more debatable.

    I see your point though about high-concept films winning the Oscar. Eternal Sunshine is another example. Inception would have been as well, which like Get Out, was a high-concept film that won WGA because the real frontrunner for Screenplay at the Oscars was inelgible there. I’m just choosing to play it safe and smart by predicting the BP Oscar winner will continue the trend of taking home an award for Screenplay, which has been the case for over a decade, minus the silent film ironically.

    So, you think Get Out will win half of its Oscar nominations without a Bafta BP nomination, zero Oscar nods in tech categories, including the key category of Film Editing, zero SAG wins, and Globe snubs for Director and Screenplay. Um, okay then. Good luck with that.

    And Call Me by Your Name has 94 on Metacritic, but when the critics ultimately pitted these films against each other, they chose Get Out most often for their top-ten lists and regional awards.

    I am not so sure about consolation prizes and spreading the wealth.  That mentality got me into trouble when I thought that they would want to give the most acclaimed film of the year editing in addition to supporting actress (Boyhood), but they instead made Whiplash of all films a three-time winner.  That same year, I also thought that they would want to recognize Wes Anderson through a screenplay win, but they instead gave yet another Oscar to Alejandro G. Iñàrritu.  Then you have films like American Hustle and True Grit that lose all ten of their nominations.

    American Hustle, Wes Anderson winning nothing, YES Riley! I didn’t officially predict the Oscars the year Roger Deakins lost for True Grit, but if I had I remember thinking he would easily win as the only win for the film, since it was nominated in 10 categories and surely would win something, right? WRONG. Gangs of New York also had 10 nods but came up empty handed. Again, I wasn’t predicting the Oscars (much less knew what they even were) way back then, but I’m confident I at least would have predicted DDL for Gangs due to his Bafta and SAG wins, plus the transformative nature of his performance.

    I thought the same thing about Boyhood, plus the whole “editing-film-shot-over-so-many-years” gimmick would impress too many Academy voters for Whiplash to overcome.

    As much as I know people (including me, to be honest) would love to call Get Out an “Oscar-winning film” I think most Oscar voters seem to care about making Billboards a 4-time winner.

    Sometimes, if the Oscars love a film enough, they won’t think about trying to spread the wealth to other films. Even though Lion clearly isn’t as acclaimed as Get Out, last year the Garth Davis film still won 2 Baftas, and the Oscars could have chosen to award it in either of those categories, yet chose their fave BP winner Moonlight for both.

    They should just scrapped this award… always goes to the British regardless.

    Yeah, that’s why Leonardo DiCaprio (American) won in 2016, and Casey Affleck (also American) won in 2017.

     

    erm are we on the same page? I’m referring to Rising Star Award not Best Actor…

    Oh, sorry I didn’t catch that you were talking about Rising Star Award specifically. But as for it, Eva Green (French), Kristen Stewart (American), Shia LaBeouf (American) won this award in the past.

    The BAFTA’s were the last hope for me. The beginning of this season looked so promising. But, alas, it turned into a total snoozefest, with all of the winners repeating at GG, SAG, BAFTA, and eventually Oscars. SMH

    Your initial narrative was that Brits “always” win it. And that wasn’t true. Now you try to change it into “non-Brits don’t win it often”. It’s like a different situation. And I don’t see how it is supposed to be such a bad situation exactly.  If you are not happy with Daniel’s win then ok, people have their preferences, but please don’t try to act like this whole award should be abolished  now, cause your fave didn’t win it.

    Personally I think Daniel deserves it.

    After this year’s BAFTA, I realised if an actor isn’t a clear front-runner/lock, only then there’s the possibility of an upset by a British actor (e.g. Mahershala Ali lost to Dev Patel last year, having previously won only Critics and SAG). This year McDormand, Rockwell and Janney were locked frontrunners, having swept everything previously, leaving no space for Hawkins, Grant (well, he was not a strong contender, just saying; or Dafoe tho not Brit) or Manville to win.
