    It’s so annoying how you can’t discuss any other possible scenario but Joaquin sweeping in the BEST ACTOR PREDICTIONS thread without being dragged when it’s in October. Anything can happen in the next few months. Chile…

    Darlings, Nose stans are the most annoying thing ever to appear on these forums. For Thatcher’s sake. He’s not winning for getting divorced against Joke playing a mental ill psycho. You need to wake up, dear citizens.

    Actually Driver may have extra-momentum, because a lot of Academy voters, a lot of male voters, may have gotten fed up with MeToo thing (which some people say turned into something like “men are trash, period”, where it’s always men’s fault and women can never be responsible for anything ever).  Driver has a role which shows man divorcing his wife and loving his child in sympathetic light. So Academy may pick Driver’s performance also because it’s pro-man performance and role, while Phoenix plays just another man going crazy and violent and killing people.

    Darlings, are you really serious? Nose isn’t winning an Oscar over Joke. Not in the real world. Get it together!!!

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    It’s fine thinking Phoenix will win, but completely writing off Driver is wrong. The same thing goes the other way too. They both have very strong chances. There’s a reason they’re co-frontrunners.

    Take what you will from this:

    @scottfeinberg: 300 members of @TheAcademy
    came out tonight to Paramount to see ROCKETMAN, a movie that debuted in theaters back in May, ahead of the Elton John Q&A. Some had seen it before, but many had not, and quite a few of those were gushing. That is precisely why you do Oscar season Q&As.

    Bafta nom for Taron at the very least??? But then, who does he push out of the current 5 slots???

    I’d like to see it, he was brilliant but I don’t really see him breaking into the race anywhere. Idk about bafta, is Elton John beloved enough there to make it happen? It would be a shame if Malek won for his razzie worthy performance of a 70s rock star and then Taron gets nothing for his actually amazing performance of a different one. Rocketman also showed that BR would have been much better if Fletcher had been the director from the beginning.

    Joaquin Phoenix
    Adam Driver
    Robert De Niro
    Antonio Banderas
    Taron Egerton

    He could make it honestly.

    I’m American, but I think most British users on here will agree that Elton John is very much beloved over there. I’ve heard the term “national treasure” applied to him. Taron would be a fantastic nominee, and while I’m not currently predicting him at the Oscars, I think he’s being underestimated. Let’s not forget he got excellent notices, and Elton’s pretty loved in the US too (he actually hosts a very popular Oscar party every year).

    Yep. Unless you came from the future it’s pretty stupid to claim that any of them is 100% winning atm. What I’m saying Driver has plenty of stuff to support his possible  win. And btw the recent scandal with Jeremy Renner in Hollywood kinda comes in handy for Driver’s chances.

    It was nice of Scarlett to ask her dear friend Jeremy to do a bit of PR marketing for her hahaha I’m joking

     
    Basically the lowdown is, Jeremy Renner is having a very public and legal spat with his wife whom he divorced. There’s a lot of big serious accusations each of them have thrown at each other and I guess the user was highlighting the parallels of that with the divorce happening in Marriage Story.

    If anything it just bolsters the notion that the academy could really embrace Marriage Story because the film is centred on two people in the industry, and majority of Hollywood is divorced so there is a huge level of relatability and sympathetic emotional connection to the material creating an impetus to vote for it and Driver.

    MS is marginally more sympathetic to audiences largely because he has more screen time. This might be cathartic for male voters.

    On the other hand, many of them have been divorced more than once, and in acrimonious fashion. It could be the last thing they want to be reminded of.
