    I would cry and be so fricking happy if Adam Driver won… but it ain’t happening. *sigh*

    Maybe next year. He’s got two films in contention. Oh, who am I kidding. It’s probably gonna be Anthony Hopkins. Another actor, like Phoenix, that I love. Eh, at least he’ll lose again to someone I stan.

    Yes, I’m already preparing myself for a possible nomination and the eventual loss that will follow.

    To be fair, while Hopkins already looks like a very safe pick, I think Driver will be going supporting for The Duel. It sounds like his role may be a lead, but Damon’s part sounds more prominent, which means he’ll probably go lead while Driver goes supporting.

    I suggested that possibility myself. Imagine that! If Driver got a nom for lead for Annette and supporting for The Last Duel?! Heads would explode in some parts! Hehehehehehe! Yes, I would love it. And he would actually beat Brando’s record then who got 4 consecutive nods in 4 years by getting 4 nods in 3 years. I know, I know, it won’t happen, but damn, that would be something!

    For the sake of Taron Egerton, I’ll forever be grateful to the HFPA even though he isn’t in the Oscar lineup. They loved his performance so much that they decided to give him the one so he could make it to the Oscars as he deserved. This isn’t the case of Awkwafina were she had zero competition. They could have easily given it to Leonardo Dicaprio, but they didn’t. I’ll forever be grateful to them for daring to force him to happen

    As I can see some are still pretending Driver is a thing? Lol! The last time he won something was back in December.

     

    No one is saying he’s going to win. They are discussing his Best Actor-nominated performance in the Best Actor discussion thread. How terrible.

    Also your second statement isn’t quite correct as Marriage Story is getting the Robert Altman this evening at the Indie Spirits.

    If Phoenix were to somehow lose after this I can just imagine all the heads exploding of all the Derbyites! (: I will be hoping for a miracle and that Driver or Banderas is announced as the winner, but it would take a miracle. Phoenix is winning – it just hasn’t been my Oscar year. last year was so maybe next year will be once again!

    I know he’s not going to win and it will hurt my score, but I don’t care. I just moved Adam Driver back into first place for best actor in my predictions. LOL! I know, I know, Phoenix is winning, but the stan in me couldn’t do it. Damnit, I’m supporting my favorite actor even if it costs me points!

    My heart’s with you

    Hopkins isn’t winning for a movie he’ll be the sole nomination of, he’ll just be a locked, undeniable nominee. Well, maybe Colman coattails: if there’s low competition, I could see her hitting Globes and BAFTA both of which love her and reviews suggest she’s potentially nomination worthy.

    In the event that Hopkins is the only other nominee besides Colman, then she wouldn’t be a coattail. That would imply that she’s a performance that normally wouldn’t get nominated that made it in because her film’s a strong contender. Anyway, Colman’s got strong notices, so I’m not gonna be surprised if she makes the cut. Also, I don’t see why you’re so sure that the film will do poorly in nominations when we have so little info to go off of for next year’s ceremony. If Hopkins’ performance is as sensational as everyone says it is, then it’s not too out there to assume he had strong material to work with, which could very likely get a screenplay nomination.

    Just a little interesting thought. Jack Nicholson was nominated for a Globe and Bafta for playing the Joker. Both Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix swept the major awards including the Oscar for playing the Joker. Jared Leto was nominated for a Razzie for playing the Joker. Wonder how he’s feeling right now.

    Anyway, I’ve said before, I was rooting for Adam Driver, but that doesn’t take away from Joaquin Phoenix’s tremendous performance. He’s a wonderful winner.

    Also, a little interesting trivia. Vito Corleone is no longer the only character to have won two Oscars for performances by two different people. It’s also worth noting, the circumstances are different between Vito and the Joker. Vito’s Oscar winning performances are the same character, but at different points in the story’s timeline. The Joker’s winning performances are different iterations of the character in separate universes.

    lol shocked that there were folks still propping up Driver mere days before the Oscars. I thought that was over. Maybe they are still hoping he wins a Razzie?

    I adore Phoenix’s win. I don’t have anything against the other men nominated of course but I think the right man won. Driver is a great actor and will win in the future. I don’t remotely feel bad for him because this isn’t the end of the line. He is just getting started.
