    Glenn had a nice win at the Globes. But that’s not enough to really reverberate everywhere else. Gaga probably still wins SAG, though I’d love for Colman to win (which is not impossible — the voters will watch the screeners given all the noms and she’s objectively better than either Close/Gaga).

    At least Olivia is a lock for the BAFTA win, though.

    Lol. Sure. She won the one award we all thought Gaga was a sure bet for, and knocked her speech out of the ballpark. SAG will follow through and award Glenn. Let’s move on.

    This is why you never wanna follow Golderby predictions.

    9 times out of 10, Golderby BA winners align with the Oscars.

    I don’t understand the narrative Golderby was pushing “Gaga is winning at the Globes but losing the Oscar”. It didn’t make sense to begin with. And it set up the expectations too high for Gaga supporters.

    Gaga delivered a great performance from a new comer. But somehow expecting her to beat an overdue veteran that has a narrative as strong as Glenn’s was far-fetched to begin with.

    Lesson’s learnt at least for me. I’ll follow my gut in all upcoming awards.

    Now, y’all behind Close. Thank God we got receipts that i did stand with her since the very first day.

    It’s nice though.. i’m pleased,  you finally found the right way.

    Honey, I am sick and tired of all white women being nominated in this category.

    The issue is systemic. And can’t be corrected with one shot deals.

    The Wife is a terrible movie. And Glenn Close isn’t even good in that.

    But she will win as a lifetime achievement award.

    Lady Sagaga is not happening. SAG will be Glenn’s easiest award to win. Globe was her biggest challenge and BAFTA won’t be relevant for her

    After the Globes the SAG & Oscar are Glenns to loose. Should Gaga win SAG (doubtful though) than the Oscar will be between Glenn and Gaga.

    Colman with have to settle for the BFTA, though her performance going to be by far the best nominated for the Oscars.

    This is Colman Vs Close. Lady Gaga can’t even be placed at the same acting level this year, nor she has the support to win at all.

    I’m beggining to think Close is gonna win due to her narrative, but IMO Colman’s acting this year is a little bit more deserving (but in my book Close is this year’s second best). I would be happy for any of those two winning… and sad for any of those two loosing the Oscar.

    I’m hoping for a 1969 outcome, but I’m afraid Hollywood would vote A LOT MORE for Close. Sadly there have only been 6 ties in Oscar’s history, the last one in 2013 at Sound Editing.

    For me the fifth slot comes down to Yalitza Aparicio vs. Emily Blunt, with an outside chance for Toni Collette. To start with the last if she were to be nominated she would be her film’s sole nomination; this is true for Glenn Close’s The Wife nomination but I think with her it’s a career award nomination – despite Collette’s impressive critics wins I personally don’t think she can make it in with this particular film and her biggest downside is she hasn’t hit any of the precursors (except CC, but no GG and SAG is always a big hurdle).

    My case for Aparicio is that she is in a BP nominee, she’s wonderful in the role, and I think that there has been more of an effort to nominate persons of color since the all white group of nominees a few years ago (I want to say 2015?). The downside for Aparicio is that she isn’t a professional actress, it’s her debut, she hasn’t hit any of the precursors (except CC),and she is in a Spanish language film.

    My case for Emily Blunt is that she is overdue, she has two critically acclaimed performances in 2018 (A Quiet Place is the other), and she gives a charming performance in Mary Poppins Returns. The downside for her is that her character stays the same throughout MPR with no story arc of her own, she may split voters who might think to nominate her in Supporting for AQP and this could dilute her votes in both categories, MPR doesn’t look like it is going to be a BP nominee, and there may be a push to have at least one person of color as a nominee. She has, however, hit the precursors.

    I would be happy with either one of them being nominated.

    imo there are 4 locks now: Glenn Close, Olivia Colman, Lady Gaga and Melissa McCarthy. So the question is: who gets the fifth slot? Maybe there will be a huge surprise but personally I think it’s Aparicio or Blunt.

    I also think the fifth slot is going to either Blunt or Aparicio. Would love to see Aparicio getting nominated since Roma was my favorite film of the year but I’d be okay if Emily Blunt gets nominated because she offered two excellent performances in 2018.

    I want Close to win SAG, everyone telling her she’s a lock until she believes her own hype and then on golden dildo night she loses… Oh my god, that would be some show! Crushing someone’s dreams on live television is the best kind of television! Wouldn’t you love such suspense and twist? Finally something surprising would happen during that boring ass ceremony. And the look on Close’s face would be an absolute delight to see. So close yet so far…

    I’m laughing at this comment. I screamed. I think you’re delusional. Glenn Close is getting that Oscar and you’ll be a little pissed when that happens but that’s gonna be okay because that’s what you get.

    People don’t realise the globes mean nothing. Gaga is still hot favourite.

    Glenn is basically guaranteed the SAG after that GG win/speech. These are her people who are voting. SAG will go to Glenn, BAFTA highly likely to go to Olivia and the Oscar is then Glenn’s to lose.

    Gaga lost any chance that she even had with that GG loss.

    The only way Lady Gaga wins is if she wins SAG. I think Glenn Close is going to win SAG and then the Oscar. Olivia Colman is the only one imo who could still win. I think it’s Close vs. Colman. As always time will tell… Jan. 27th will provide the answer.
