    Please correct me if I’m wrong, did Glenn Close tie with Geraldine Page with most noms (7) without winning? Page won on her 8th nom?

    Yes, that is correct. They’re now flopped nomination sisters.

    Both Glenn Close and Olivia Colman gave memorable terrific acceptance speeches throughout the awards season and they both gave memorable terrific performances too! The right performance won in my opinion but it would have been a great win either way! I will never forget closee’s Globe and Spirit acceptance speeches! Colman was funny and touching! (btw, I just saw her in a repeat from 10 years ago or so on Midsomer Murders where she played the murderer!). I still think Julia Roberts gave the very best lead actress performance, and Nicole Kidman, Melanie Thierry, Lea Drucker, Johann Kulig, just to name a few, ought to have been in the conversation too but Colman was wonderful! Comedies don’t usually win so it was really remarkable for her to win! (:

    This is so depressing yet funny at the same time.

    It is fucking weird, indeed. Like when you hook up with the hot one, but then you also want to check on how your boyfriend is doing because he’s loyal and all that.

    Let’s take a break and look at 2 queens of pop. Both fanbases can now end the war.

    So happy for Olivia.  I think she just made herself a star with that shocking win and a brilliant speech.  She didn’t come off as a movie star, but as a great actress and a human being.  It’s refreshing.

    She’s going to fade back into British television.

    One of my favorite pics ever. Also, Madonna is looking better in that pic than she’s had in like the past year or so. Some of her looks this past year were a MESS.

    Doubt it.  She’s starring alongside some huge names in The Crown on Netflix, which is watched largely by Americans.  I think this will make her a big name in America.  If you haven’t seen it yet, she’s been turning out Oscar worthy performances in TV shows for years.  I don’t see her fading away at all.

    They did, not because she was better than Olivia (that’s debatable and a matter of opinion), but because the “overdue narrative” always works. It worked for Winslet, Dicaprio, Moore. Why is Close an exception? Because critics loved Colman too much? Then why did Sally and Saoirse lose to McDormand last year?

    I’m calmed now, sorry for yesterday.

    Again you have to ask yourselves why all these bad choices like Bohemian Rhapsody (4 wins) and even  Green Book for BP, but no to Glenn Close. Olivia Colman was really good and is a  very deserving winner but she wasn’t their choice. I just watched  The acceptance speech and it looks like nobody was really happy for her excepted Emma Stone and her team.

    Now, I think that people actually voted for Glenn Close but the academy chairmen really didn’t wanted to make it seem like a career  achievement or something so they sacrificed her to make up their bad choices. The Favourite deserved better, but it couldn’t just go home empty-handed. They give it to Colman because it was most convenient for them to reward the movie at the expense of Glenn Close.

    It’s not like the TF was a blockbuster.  They really tried to push it as the best picture of the year, but it’s not actually people cup of tea. ( I loved it tho.). Anyway I moved on.

    And again sorry for yesterday.

    Colman’s win is amazing when you consider the fact that she’s not a big name in America and that The Academy obviously didn’t love The Favourite all that much. Close seemingly had everything going for her: the overdue factor, the narrative, the legendary name, the history.

    I think we have to consider Olivia Colman’s Best Actress as the most surprising acting win since Marion Cotillard.

    The thing people need tor remember is that people were in shock that Glenn Close had lost for a 7th time and it really wasn’t a reflection of any bad feelings towards Colman that it took them a bit to get over their surprise at Olivia’s name being announced as the winner! her ovation was at the end of her wonderful acceptance speech!

    Now you might all understand why I was so hoping for a tie! (:
