    Question – why do some believe that Awkwafina is nomination worthy? I truly am confused by her hype. She has a monologue about the difficulty of immigration, but I for the life of me never was bowled over wanting to give her praise!

    She’s the weakest link performance wise in her own movie. They also want an Asian breakthrough and The Farewell is more critically esteemed than Crazy Rich Asians.

    I chuckled here and there during The Farewell, but mostly I was crying huge tears. She’s Chinese-American. Every word she said, every nuance, was relatable for me.
    “But I never got a chance to see him again”.
    Knocked me to the floor with the force of a sledgehammer.

    I understand why not everyone can relate to this. I’m not one of them.

    I found Awkwafina’s performance to be very impressive. She did a wonderful job balancing some truly heartbreaking drama with some delightfully awakened comedy. I really felt for her character all throughout the film, seeing just how much she’s hurting, and how hiding it only makes the pain worse. I also appreciate her playing against type. What I’ve seen of her other works shows her as usually being overtly comedic, but here she has to play the dramatic lead who doubles as the straight man. And I’ll give props to her for doing a role where the majority of her dialogue is in a language she wasn’t actually familiar with until she made this film.

    There were both elite languages spoken here. Mandarin, and Japanese. I was a bit confused at first because I could understand half the dialogue and only a poor working knowledge of Mandarin.
    Easy to see they could understand one another, since the script is the same in both languages.

    I am so surprised but happy for Lupita. If she wins LA, I am adding her again.

    Yalitza isn’t on the predictions centre yet. Let me know when she’s added as I want to predict her at 100/1 odds before everyone follows suit. She can pull a Bradley Cooper for American Sniper in 2014 as a viable late contender.

    I think Yalitza is winning LA. The subject matter is basically bait for this critics group.
