    Huppert arguably had a worthy performance and I don’t think that critics voted for her to win because of being overdue.

    Riva didn’t really have a big presents in the US, so I don’t think that applies.

    And Leo wasn’t a case of being overdue with critics, he has won plenty of them before The Revenant.

    A worthy performance can go hand in hand with the actor being overdue. This was certainly the case with Huppert. The role was right so critics took the opportunity to reward her for the performance as well as her long career. This also goes to a lesser degree for Riva who was a respected veteran especially among critics and film buffs, even though her name recognition was not great among general public.

    As for Leo for The Revenant, the entire awards season was all about him being overdue for an Oscar, and all the critics jumped on the wagon. If he’d have won an Oscar before, critics would not have showered him with trophies that year. If that’s not proof of critics not being immune to overdue factor, I don’t know what is.

    The Oscars dominate the season and this goes for critics too – they don’t hand out their awards in a vacuum. They aren’t immune to wanting to predict Oscars as much as the next person, some consciously and some unconsciously. Someone being considered overdue affects their choices. You are right though that it doesn’t play as big a part among critics as it does in industry ceremonies.

    If they wanted to predict the Oscars, Oldman would be sweeping.

    Leo didn’t need critics awards to win the Oscar. I think you’re off base.

    Huppert had always been a critics winner and not a mainstream awards winner.

    I’m torn on Drama Actor. I don’t think that they’re going to give it to Oldman with their history and he’s not campaigning. I had Daniel Day-Lewis in for the longest time.

    This is my reasoning for a Daniel Day-Lewis win: If the HFPA figure that Oldman is going to sweep the award’s season after their ceremony, and they don’t like him, they’re going to look for an alternative. They might want to be the ones to give Daniel Day-Lewis his final major award if they think Oldman is going to claim the rest of them.

    My problem is that Phantom Thread doesn’t have support besides Day-Lewis. It didn’t get Director or Screenplay. Neither did Call Me By Your Name, and Chalamet is who I changed my prediction to. CMBYN underperformed but got Picture. Phantom Thread didn’t get anything else, but it wasn’t really predicted for anything else for the most part.

    I don’t think CMBYN can win any other categories besides Actor so is that where the vote is going to go to? Both Day-Lewis and Chalamet seem like viable alternatives to Oldman but I can’t decide which one.

    I could see Day-Lewis winning, he’s so respected that this group might see it as their way to honor someone they like for the last time while also sticking it to Oldman. But I think they will want to give CMBYN at least one win, and this is really the only place to do that.

    I still think Oldman is going to win, but if he doesn’t I think Chalamet is the alternative so they can share the love with all of their nominees in drama.

    Score doesn’t compare to Best Picture. And Day-Lewis was snubbed by most Circles. If they don’t want to give it to Oldman, the only alternative is Chalamet.
