    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?

    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.

    I want to point out that everybody repeats themselves on here, everyone. 2nd, Amy Adams has received ONE Critics prize so far and that’s all she has won. This could change, of course, maybe others just love her performance and I am the only one who found it awful. If you read what I said closely you would have seen my acknowledgement that others see it differently. I have made it clear that I will be happy with all but one actress winning, I am not attached to King winning, but part of the reason I want her to win is because so many people have been so nasty towards her on here. Why get so reactive about it? You repeat yourself over and over again too. Everybody does. you like it when it corresponds with your opinion and you react when it doesn’t, which is human.

    You don’t think calling Adam’s performance “awful” is being nasty? As I have said before I think King was great, I just personally didn’t think it was Oscar-worthy so I hope you’re not suggesting I am one of those who are being “nasty” towards her. It’s not my intent to drag her name through the mud like it seems to be yours with Adams in multiple threads. I was responding to this very fact by simply noting that she has hit those 3 precursors King has not in addition to being 4th in the critics race, so clearly a number of people must not agree that her performance was one-note. But anyway, you’re entitled to your own opinion regardless and personally I would prefer Adams to win for a better role where people unanimously think she deserves it.

    I find it almost poetic in a way that Naomi Watts didn’t receive an Oscar nomination for Mulholland Drive. I guess she was unknown at the time, but still. She’s my win for that year, and coming so early in the century, nobody else has come close to matching her since…and it’s already been almost 20 years! She’ll get her due one day, I hope…interestingly enough, I see some parallels in quality with Colette in Hereditary.

    Penguin Bloom May be her answer.

    Jeff Wells from the website Hollywood Elsewhere voted for Amy Adams as Best Supporting Actress for tomorrow’s Critics Choice awards. Here’s his reason why:

    You can Regina King me all you want, but Adams delivered the year’s strongest female supporting performance. That tongue-lashing she gives Bale’s young Dick Cheney about how she won’t stay with a drunken loser — perfect.

    Can we not have our own opinions about what we perceive as awful performances? Most people love Toni Collette’s performance in Hereditary – I didn’t like it at all. That isn’t being nasty, it’s just an honest opinion. Same with Adams. I like her alot and have enjoyed many of her performances but I didn’t like her at all in this particular role and film. She may win, I just hope she doesn’t – there are much better performances that deserve recognition this year.

    That scene was terrible. Can’t take him seriously.

    No comment on Regina King as I still have yet to see Beale Street. Out of the performances I’ve seen from major contenders (Stone/Weisz, Blunt, Foy, Adams), Stone and Weisz were my favorites (no pun intended) and Adams was easily the weakest.

    Not sure why so many people named Weisz as a threat to win the Oscar?

    She has two big handicaps:

    1) She had already won one; and
    2) She has an equally game co-star who will undoubtedly steal votes from her.

    All three actresses in TF were equally smashing and both Stone and Weisz have won an equal amount of critics awards, 3 vs. 3. So you can’t say that Weisz stood out and that she is the one who will be representing the film.

    It’s a pure internet fantasy. First Weisz was supposed to win Globes. Now she is supposed to win SAG. And then she is a lock for BAFTA. I cant wait till Amy wins the Oscar and then we’ll hear them say that Weisz will win the cocktail at the afterparty!

    Wells is terrible but at least he is voting for the right person here.

    You freaking REPEAT yourself over and over again. This is maybe comment no. 383838 telling us how you didn’t like Amy Adams’ performance and how everyone’s hating towards Regina (this is not the case at all) because you happened to adore her performance. Please, stop this foolishness. Yes, there are people here that just loved Amy’s turn this year just like you loved Regina’s. They don’t need to explain themselves, SAG and BAFTA did by snubbing her.

    LOL. Weisz is definitely winning BAFTA. About splinting votes with Stone that may happen at SAG and Oscars but at BAFTA she will definitely be ‘The Favourite’. Also about SAG i don’t think anybody has a clue. People assume Adams will win SAG because King isn’t nominated. For me i don’t think Adams is a sure thing there. She’s will most likely win for ‘Sharp Objects’ and i’m not seeing them vote twice for her. I got a feeling Blunt could surprise there in a make up win for her loss in Lead. But Adams won’t win this in a landslide. THAT i can assure you.
