    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?

    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?

    I would say Laura Dern but the female supporting category is so weak this year I can’t see her losing

    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.

    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!

    Face It! There’s no upset whatsoever!

    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.

    Jan. 30 – Oscars: Final Voting Opens

    Feb. 2 – BAFTA Awards

    Feb. 4 – Oscars: Final Voting Closes

     

    With this tight schedule I don’t think Bafta will make any difference.

    The big surprise will be that one or more of them will give a terrific acceptance speech…

    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.

    I honestly think Renee has the least competition, given her performance. Driver & Banderas are tough, but Joaquin won’t lose. Pesci/Pacino are amazing too. Pugh & Bates are very good also.
