    Hear me out: I think the other 3 are locks and will continue their sweeps at BAFTA and the Oscars. But Laura Dern is vulnerable to a Florence Pugh upset at BAFTA. This combined with Oscar voters probably thinking that Dern will win anyway could lead to them voting for their passion pick which could be Pugh or even ScarJo. Yes this is unlikely but we also thought Glenn Close losing was unlikely.

    She’s not facing an acclaimed performance like Colman’s was, so she’s probably the safest Oscar winner.

    All I have are negative thoughts

    Glenn Close isn’t a cautionary tale for current or future nominees. She’s an example of voters respecting her enough to nominate but petty enough to vote for alternatives.

    All four acting categories are LOCKED. Hang it up.

    For who? Robbie couldnt even get a GD nom. Jojo is dead outside of screenplay. Pugh has less than zero narrative to win. Nom is reward.

    Nope. There’s no alternative now that her alleged biggest competitor couldn’t even make the final 5

    I honestly would not be surprised if she lost at BAFTA. Having said that, the only nominee who comes from a Best Film nominee is Robbie for HOLLYWOOD and I really, really do not think she could win for that…so frankly, I am still going to predict Dern. However, I could see them going for the other three (sans Robbie for HOLLYWOOD).

    Even if Dern were to lose the BAFTA, she will still get the Oscar regardless.

    She can lose BAFTA and still win the Oscar.

    Darling, Shouty is disgustingly winning but taking GD nominations as something relevant is truly hilarious.

    This. Dern’s biggest / only competition missed on nomination morning and she’s had this on lock ever since.

    I guess bafta can always go for their native talent (who in this case would be the rightful winner, anyway), but for pugh getting over the lack of name recognition and getting the nomination was her reward. unlike close, dern is the one with the critics’ support this year

    A poor analogy for a number of reasons, including the fact that Close was the sole nominee for her film while Dern’s film has incredibly strong support across the acting branch and the Academy overall. Could she still lose? Sure, but if she did, it would be for completely different reasons than why Close did.

    I mean GD is pretty much sheep oscar voters. Her missing there is more telling than anything. GD would never snub an Oscar winner.
