    I didn’t realize this category was still considered competitive. I thought any shot at beating King went out the window when a non-Oscar nominee won SAG.

    One thing’s for sure, Adams is done.

    I still have King out front, but Weisz is the threat.

    I have no problem with Weiz winning. She was fantastic. My main issue is why are so many anti-Ali but pro-Weiz. They are both in the SAME position. Both have questionable first wins. Both are on their 2nd nomination. Ali and Weiz are both committing fraud, but only one is taking the heat. I’d be happy with Marina, King, or Weiz.

    A bunch of hypocrites that’s all.

    “Both have questionable first wins.”

    YESSSSSS thank you. I always thought that about The Constant Gardener and Moonlight.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    It doesn’t matter who SAG went with. They still snubbed King. She can’t just break the rules just because you want her to.

    Weisz does not have a questionable first win – she was not a fraud for The Constant Gardener and was fantastic in the role. The film itself should have been nominated for a lot more than it ended up with, particularly Fiennes.

    Weisz is not lead. She may be amongst the top three actors of the film, but her time and her disappearance for an entire third of the film and basically non-existence in the last third allows her to be considered supporting. Stop with this category fraud nonsense.

    Nothing remotely “questionable” about either Ali’s or Weisz’s first Oscar wins. Both supporting. Both highly deserving. That’s entirely separate from their win-worthiness this time around.

    In The Favourite? She definitely exists in the last third. She has a couple of stretches of time off-screen but not that much.

    Rachel Weisz is leading. Even Olivia admitted it during her acceptance speech last night. Ali on the other hand is as lead as they come. He and Emma Stone are the biggest category frauds of this awards season.

    That’s what I meant, her time is limited (sorry if that came off rude). Her absence in the second and her limited presence in the third doesn’t scream lead as much as to me as Stone and Colman, and that’s why I consider it supporting.

    I think you mean it’s between King and Weisz.

    Yes, I typed too fast

    I agree that Stone and Colman are leading and Weisz is supporting.

    Rachel´s case is not as severe as Mahershala Alead´s but I think she´s still lead on the film.I mean the three ladies have similar amount of screentime and the film is about the relation between the three of them, the film wouldn´t work without any of them.

    I’m skeptical about King for several reasons: her being snubbed at SAG is significant due to the fact that actors who most likely share large overlap with the Emmys (correct me if I’m wrong) and are the largest voting block in the Academy snubbed her which defeats this whole “everybody must love Regina because she’s a 4 time Emmy winner!” argument. I also keep seeing Tom in videos saying that it doesn’t matter that her movie is not well liked due to people like Christopher Plummer winning for supporting in Beginners. Not only is that a flawed comparison IMO but to me it does matter as she is already lacking on one ingredient you need to win an Oscar(precursor strength/dominance) and is lacking in another in which she really should not be: With the same filmmaker winning Best Picture for Moonlight two years ago and in this type of political climate with this diverse new voting bloc why did If Beale Street Could Talk not do better with the overlapping with Oscar precursors? Black Klansman and Black Panther have the diverse angle as well but If Beale Street Could Talk is the small independent film that should have at least gotten into Best Picture and gotten more attention then it did from awards groups. No PGA, SAG, or major BAFTA nominations besides Screenplay. Coupled with King’s allegedly too brief performance and her lack of a large body of high profile film work in Hollywood makes me feel skeptical that she can win the Oscar.
