    I wouldn’t mind, but no actor has won an Oscar without BAFTA and SAG, beside Marcia Gay Harden. In Regina’s case, BAFTA acknowledged her film yet left her out. They liked her film to an extent, but not her specifically. The BAFTA snub is also proof that the SAG snub was intentional and willing.

    The BAFTA snub is not proof that SAG’s snub was intentional. They are 2 different award bodies.

    I will say that BAFTA nominating Beale Street in screenplay is troubling, but you can still at least argue that the film has not had much visability due to a late release and only got it only got in because it’s a weaker category than supporting actress.

    I am simply keeping the faith that Regina King will win the Oscar. We won’t know until Feb. 22nd.

    btw, of course Beale Street was going to get a screenplay nomination! And a score nomination! If you look at the composition of the five supporting actress nominees there are two Brits, an Aussie and two Americans, but 3 of them are in films about British royalty! That is the most important point. Beale Street hasn’t been released yet in the U.K. and BAFTA has a history of not liking strong African-American themed movies, with rare exceptions. Here’s hoping that Robbie or Weisz wins at BAFTA.

    Another point: so far Amy Adams has received ONE critics prize, I think from Austin, Texas or some other small Texas critics group? Regina King can still win in this weird year in this category where there has been a lack of consensus.

    I am not fond of her work. She is the same in each role. Fast talking with sass. She needs to emote and add layers.

    She’s having a very strange, head-scratching run so far. I don’t understand how she can miss the key SAG and BAFTA noms while sweeping the critics awards and winning the first televised award. I thought that her SAG snub would clear the way for an Amy Adams sweep but she doesn’t seem to be picking much traction either. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rachel won BAFTA, Amy SAG all of which would leave the race totally unsure come Oscar night.

    And I also have this strange feeling that SAG will make things even messier and randomly choose Margot Robbie

    I think she actually has two: Kansas which is second-tier and Capri?

    Doesn’t seem like you’ve seen much of her work. When was she fast talking with sass? Jerry Maguire, Boyz N the Hood and… I really can’t think of any other performances from her like that.

    It’s mostly Amy Adams stans who are desperate for her to win for a passionless performance

    Didn’t you know? She’s a black woman so she’s got to be fast-talking and sassy..

    Remember that the BAFTA snub was Denzel’s downfall two years ago, and he WON the SAG.

    Regina King has been doing great work for some time …when you hear things like ” fast talking with sass”, you realise how much gross bullshit like this so many actors of colour still need to wade through !

    Beale Street is an excellent film and she gave a nuanced layered performance and would be  a very deserved BSA winner , rooting for her !

    her momentum ends tonight, while a more deserving actress will sweep the remaining, most important precursors; SAG and BAFTA, both of which King was rightfully snubbed.

    I really hope she wins the Oscar and I think she will – I think SAG and BAFTA will go to different actresses, and King will win the Indie Spirit and then the Oscar!
