    The Stallone and King comparsions would make sense if Rachel wasn’t already an Oscar winner

    And the fact that she faces internal competition from her co-star. She literally just lost the Derby awards because of vote-splitting. The King haters don’t want to hear these facts tho

    It’s been 13 years since Weisz won, so what’s wrong with her winning again, Babygirl?

    Nothing, unlike y’all Regina and Rachel are my top 2 so I’m fine with either winning.

    It’s just funny how you guys are acting like Regina winning is impossible and that The Academy is itching to give Rachel another Oscar.

    The King apologists don’t want to hear the facts either so they’re on the same level.

    It is sort of bizarre how Amy Adams was never able to gain any traction with an overdue narrative when the rest of the nominees all have handicaps to them winning.

    Very well put! She could have sailed to victory with this role but there’s something about her that makes it easy to be overlooked.

    The fact that people say that even Marina Tavares has more chances than Amy says a lot about the lack of support for her performance on Vice

    Maybe she will be new Thelma Ritter

    I wouldn’t say itching but I would say that they don”t really care- she won too long ago for them to pass her over just for that. It really all depends on if Oscar voters are passionate enough about King”s work or not. We”ll see.

    People SAY that Marina de Tavira has a better chance than Amy Adams but that doesn’t mean it’s true.

    Did you just compare GoldDerby to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences? An online website to the top industry organization?

    Amy’s handicap was that her performance is the worst of the nominees, and that her film is the worst in the category.

    I think that Vice is too divisive with Oscar voters even with the 8 nods. Adams”s performance has pretty much no buzz either so that”s why she had no traction. If they campaigned her as an overdue contender right from the start it would have been a different story. To be honest they flopped big on that one. Why did the studio not take advantage of that? Even before Glenn took that campaign slogan and ran with it there was time to do so with Adams.

    While I still haven’t made up my mind about this race, I am noticing that the publicity around Weisz these last weeks is subtle, yet strong. I’m watching her SAG career retrospective, which is a lovely piece on how grounded and intelligent she is and was posted early this month, and then only from this week there are two Times pieces, People’s 2019 Oscar Portfolio (which Regina King also is in), a piece in Vulture about her and Stone, a mention in The Guardian talking about memes and standouts of 2018, not to mention the BAFTA red carpet interviews and win from two weeks ago. That’s a huge amount of press but it never feels like hard campaigning.

    Googling for Regina King in the same period, we’ve got the already mentioned People Oscar Portfolio (with a very #iwantthatoscar answer in it), a CNN interview, and a Vulture piece about her almost being crushed at a Philadelphia 76ers game.

    Do you guys think that this kind of exposure in the last days of voting might influence voters that are no sure what to do?

    You could say all that about Stallone in 2016.

    I think so but voting closed yesterday. Anything that happens today and afterwards probably won”t matter.

    I think King can win and the Stallone comparison can get a bit tiring but when you think about it it”s pretty eerie how close the scenarios are with an unnominated contender winning SAG, the front runner getting snubbed at SAG and BAFTA, and a Brit Actor taking the BAFTA. It”s odd.
