    Tell me about it, it’s exhausting having to wait another few months. But that still doesn’t stop me lol.

    Girl be careful though, and have more self control than me, I’ve been drinking waaaay too much since I turned 21.

    I still think Colman has a better shot at upsetting then some are saying but Close is still winning.

    Colman’s win is well within my prediction track for BAFTA. BAFTA can’t be that heartless to their own treasures. But I will just regard it as simply another Emmanuelle Riva, Imelda Staunton and Scarlett Johanson’s win (seriously how could they ever snub Chalize Theron’s once-in-a-lifetime performance???) and not a Marion Cottilard’s win (I know it is going to be brought up countless times before the Oscar).

    While all of the 4 winners are well predicted, I’m still mad about the fact that Mahershala Ali is the only one has had such an easy clean sweep out of the four, only two years after his first Oscar win, while he has brought truly nothing impressive to the table.

    It’s very possible that she can pull of an upset. But i’m not as confident as some delusional people here. Like saying that Colman has this in the bag or that she’s definitely winning. We all knew BAFTA was going to Colman. And people who thought otherwise were crazy. I think Rachel has a bigger shot at an upset than Colman due to the fact that she has been everywhere and she has been nominated everywhere as well. But Colman has a shot as well.

    Let me add some fresh dose of critical thinking here.

    1. Glenn Close
    Pros – Won the Globe, Critics Choice, and SAG. This is her 7th Oscar nomination and has zero wins under her belt. Her “overdueness” is in Julianne Moore and Al Pacino territory here.

    Cons – The Wife is only nominated for one Oscar. Colman and Gaga are attached to more popular films.

    2. Olivia Colman
    Pros – Won the Globe and BAFTA. She plays a real-life figure as a sympathetic, yet unlikable queen. Pretty hard to pull off. She’s also put on some weight for the role.

    Cons – Her name is not Glenn Close.

    3. Lady Gaga
    Pros – Won the Critics Choice award for Best Actress.

    Cons – Hollywood might not see her as a “real actress”. Her only big win was at the Critics Choice award, where she tied with Glenn Close.

    4. Melissa McCarthy
    Pros – Nominated both SAG and BAFTA.

    Cons – Her dramatic performance has been overshadowed by Gaga, Close, and Colman this awards season.

    5. Yalitza Aparacio
    Pros – Her film just might win Best Picture.
    Cons – No SAG or BAFTA nominations. No major Best Actress wins either.

    They didn’t. She was nominated the year after in 2005. Her movie premiered too late to be nominated at 2004 BAFTA awards ceremony.

    She didn’t win, and she would have had the easiest cleanest sweep. That’s why I said before that SAG’s mistakes seem to be more reasonable than BAFTA’s.

    And thankfully she lost to superior performance. Staunton in VD is one for the ages. Theron wasn’t even the best her year.

    You know that more than half of the voters know already for whom they are voting for right?! Close may have lost tonight but she’s clearly winning the Oscar. Not to mention that many voters won’t even watch half of the nominated movies. They’ll go with what they know. Colman is not campaigning enough to pull an upset. Not to mention that she’s not attending many of the ceremonies. That’s bad. Nicole, Cotillard and Streep they ALL campaigned and had important people and narratives behind them. Something that Olivia, unfortunately, hasn’t. Oscars are all about campaigning and narratives. If you don’t do or have any of them then you’re chances of winning aren’t that great.

    Maybe the fact she’s not behaving like a desperate, cloying actress and instead is DOING her job might help her? Just saying…
    And she is in the most nominated film of the year. They could easily read her film title next to her name and vote for her.
