It looks like all 4 acting awards are pretty much locked up for big night. However, surprises do happen (last year when Olivia Colman beat out Glenn Close comes to mind, although both had Globe wins). Do you think we will see anything surprising come Oscar night? and if yes, who do you think has the best chance at an upset?January 27, 2020 at 10:15 am #1203314594
Joaquin, Renée, and Brad all seem locked and loaded.
For all her trophies this awards season, I still wouldn’t be 100% confident about Laura Dern.
Maybe Scarlett Johansson for Jojo has a squeak of a chance to upset?January 27, 2020 at 10:23 am #1203314609
I would say Laura Dern but the female supporting category is so weak this year I can’t see her losingJanuary 27, 2020 at 10:27 am #1203314614
She doesn’t seem to have a prayer but the fact that someone could watch Florence Pugh in LITTLE WOMEN and then Laura Dern in MARRIAGE STORY and say the latter is worthy of an Oscar is baffling.
However, I still feel like Dern is a lock. I do think she isn’t a sure-thing at BAFTA but even if she does lose there, I would still predict her at the Oscars.
Phoenix and Pitt are locked down too.
I almost feel like Zellweger would be the most vulnerable, but I am not even sure who would overtake her at this point.

Lol. I mean, dreaming isn’t a crime.January 27, 2020 at 10:45 am #1203314646
Unless BAFTA throws a curveball, no. Colman had won a Globe and BAFTA.
Phoenix and Pitt are 100% locked. Zellweger and Dern are locked unless they’re upset at BAFTA (maybe ScarJo?).
Have a great day if you see this!

Pitt is the only one that I’d say is a 100% lock, but the others all feel very safe to me at this moment.

With this tight schedule I don’t think Bafta will make any difference.January 27, 2020 at 12:04 pm #1203314824
The big surprise will be that one or more of them will give a terrific acceptance speech…

Yeah Brad, Laura, Renee and Joaquin are all currently writing their speechesJanuary 27, 2020 at 12:19 pm #1203314848
No we won’t.
I just love movies. And awards.January 27, 2020 at 1:09 pm #1203314962
Yeah feels like a repeat of 2018 where it was just an easy run-up to the awards. Especially with such a limited time between voting open and close. I think the most vulnerable is Renee given her film isn’t up for much else, none of the big categories anyways but her narrative is so strong I have a hard time seeing her lose it.
