I have a feeling Regina King has peaked too early in the Best Supporting Actress Oscar race, kind of like Laurie Metcalf last year. After sweeping most of the Critics’ Awards, and especially after that SAG snub. Remember what happened to Sylvester Stallone? I’m currently predicting Amy Adams to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Vice. She will most certainly win SAG and it’s been 11 years since SAG and Oscar disagreed on Best Supporting Actress. Plus, Adams is overdue after 6 nominations. Plus, she was snubbed for Arrival. Comparatively, what’s the narrative for King? She isn’t overdue. I feel like this nomination will be the welcome nomination and she’ll win some other day. But I currently feel like this is Adams’ to lose. In fact, I’ve been predicting her this whole season.December 25, 2018 at 9:00 am #1202709720
Why does this require its own thread? King has the possibility of being competitive if the precursors don’t all award Adams.December 25, 2018 at 9:02 am #1202709723
Tell that to Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice winner Sylvester Stallone.December 25, 2018 at 9:08 am #1202709729
Once the Globes, who went crazy for Vice and nominated Adams 3 times this year, coronate Amy as the Oscar front runner, the sheep at BFCA will follow suit and Adams’ inevitable SAG win will propel her towards Oscar glory.December 25, 2018 at 9:25 am #1202709744
I’ll say again that the prediction that Regina sweeps was more in line with how we expected Beale Street to perform overall, while it’s been relatively underperforming by that measure. At the same time there doesn’t seem to be nearly as much passion for Amy’s work, even if she’s gotten good reviews for Vice, and the critics and some televised groups will still give Regina her win for Beale Street. So I think it’s too early to count her out, especially since Amy doesn’t seem “undeniable” by any means, and we’ve seen Regina King win more industry awards than Amy — who might have been nominated for more Oscars but a young white actress would have more opportunities to be in that position than someone like Regina King, whose closer to someone like an Octavia Spencer (not nominated before but worked with EVERYONE and accrued a massive amount of respect).December 25, 2018 at 9:27 am #1202709745
No. She will win where she’s nominated at and will take the Oscar.December 25, 2018 at 9:39 am #1202709749
I see the comparison to the critical fav Laurie Metcalf (who was my personal favorite) but I think this year could go either way since not all precursors are likely to be the same like Janney sweeping all of the televised awards last year. I think if Regina can take the globe and continue the momentum with Critics Choicr she still has a chance to win the Oscar without a SAG nomination/win. But if Adams can take globe I think it’s hers (assuming she wins SAG)..

We could have discussed this on the best supporting actress thread.Anyway…Amy Adams is winning this.Period.December 25, 2018 at 10:29 am #1202709766
Regina King is going to WIN the Oscar and she will deserve to win! (: She is superb, amazing, phenomenal, astounding, brilliant! She will prevail! (:December 25, 2018 at 10:41 am #1202709785
King is guaranteed two televised precursors: the Image Award and the Independent Spirit.
I don’t see critics choice ignoring her… Anyway, I think we’re underestimating Rachel Weiz…. She might just surprise
FYC Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) for best actress
