    If Amy Adams will not win this year for ‘Vice’ in the Best Supporting Actress category, she might follow in footsteps of the late Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter. The last two earned six nominations each and zero wins.

    I doubt this is her last nomination.

    Toni Colette and Naomi Watts are way more overdue for an Oscar win than Margot Robbie. Naomi being the most overdue who should’ve been an Oscar winner before even her actual first Oscar nomination.

    You really get the Naomi situation. You’re one of my faves.

    She does have “Woman in the Window” next year.

    I doubt Woman in the Window is coming anywhere near the Oscars tbh.

    Why not? Amy will be playing troubled woman with agoraphobia.

    I was going to buy that book, but I bet is just a The Girl on the Train rip off, Amy Adams might still be nominated tho, but I doubt that film will be critically acclaim.

    From the films I’ve seen thus far, I would only nominate Emily Blunt, Claire Foy, and Rachel Weisz. I hope the three of them make it into the Oscar lineup. I couldn’t care less who else gets nominated. Amy Adams didn’t do anything worthy of a nomination in my opinion. Her performance was just ok at best.

    I really think Regina King is winning Supporting Actress this year.

    I am waiting for SAG and BAFTA to decide who my final prediction will be, but if those two prizes go to 2 different actresses I will stick with Regina King as my prediction; it would depend on which actress (of the four that are nominated for both) won both of those prizes for me to decide to predict another actress.

    I would consider switching my prediction to Weisz if she won both awards but I would be shocked it that were to happen! I am certain I will love four of the nominees and be happy with any of the four winning and that includes Weisz!

    Right now I think King is likely to win, too. But you have to admit that after she (likely) wins Critic’s Choice tomorrow night, she has about 6 weeks until the Oscars for her momentum to come to a screeching halt due to her SAG and BAFTA snub. Even if SAG and BAFTA winners are split, and I kind of am thinking they will, I think one of these winners would still majorly be in contention considering SAG + BAFTA voters have some overlap with the Academy and these wins/speeches will be more recent and top of mind. And it’s not like King isn’t winning SAG and BAFTA and was nominated, she was snubbed altogether from being nominated. She still has a pretty good shot at winning giving that this category seems all over the place, but it still could be anyone’s game in my book.

    What if Weisz wins both SAG + BAFTA? That would make the race exciting.

    Well she’s definitely winning BAFTA. SAG could happen but for some reason I got a feeling Blunt could surprise there. But even if she goes to the Oscars with only BAFTA she can pull a surprising win. Alan Arkin, Tilda Swinton and Mark Rylance are very good examples of that. So if she wins BAFTA, which I’m almost certain she will, then we all should take her possible win seriously.

    Look, I know mine is a minority view but I just can’t wrap my mind around people voting for Amy Adams one-note performance as Lynne Cheney for the award. I have to believe that they will at least consider the performance and not the ‘overdue narrative’ – I just have a hard time believing everyone loves her performance. I could be wrong, I have certainly disagreed with the academy in the past, but I am really hoping someone else wins. I get what others are saying about momentum but I think that at least some voters will have remorse about not nominating Regina King and vote for her. I am not saying it’s going to be a runaway slam dunk for King, I think it will be close, but I think the voters will feel more free than usual to go with their own instincts rather than follow the trend this year in this category. It feels more wide open than it has been in years and years. I think in a close race King can and will win, especially since Emma Stone will get some votes, there are people – myself included – who preferred her performance to Rachel Weisz’s. Of course we have to wait and see who the five nominees are – will it be Blunt or Robbie for the fifth slot, or Kidman, Yeoh, de Tavira, or Foy?

    It feels a little Girl on the Train-esque. I know Woman in the Window, has a lot more going for it with Wright directed, Adams, Moore and Oldman starring etc., but I heard source material is not very good. I’d love to be proven wrong though. 😀

    You have expressed this /so/ many times. We truly get it! But the fact remains that your opinion does not speak for everyone. There are plenty of people who were completely underwhelmed with King’s performance as well.

    Yes the critics loved it but she was snubbed from SAG & BAFTA. If Adams was as terrible and one-note as you constantly post about why is she 4th in the critics race in addition to having hit all precursors, 3 of which King did not make (AACTA Intl, SAG, BAFTA) all of which overlap with the Academy. Sure it’s not Adam’s best role or performance ever, but in such a strange year in this category I think it could go any way. My personal preference: Weisz > Kidman > Blunt > Adams > Stone > King.

    I have not yet seen Foy, Robbie, or Yoeh.
