    I don’t consider the HFPA to be racists. They made Moonlight an Oscar frontrunner. They were the first to award a black woman in Drama. We should be castigating the BAFTAs instead

    Andra Day should be winning Best Actress

    BAFTA isn’t great either, but they have awarded about the same amount of Black performers as the Oscars.

    Boseman is sweeping! Told you so.

    But best supporting actress is such a mess now. Did anybody actually predict Foster?

    Yep I did. The HFPA obviously saw and liked the movie when SAG didn’t. She’s a star. Didn’t think Close, Seyfried or Zengel stood a chance. And I thought The Father was going to lose every category and so why would they give Colman the only nod, and here instead of The Crown (I also picked Corrin for the reverse reason). That was my logic.

    I’m slightly closer to the side of enjoying these winners too. I haven’t seen Billie Holiday or The Mauritanian, but those wins at least make those races more exciting and confusing, and Foster winning for the latter convinces me more of a Youn win at the Oscars. No clue where those races are going, but Day certainly fills the 5th slot quite comfortably now in Actress, Supporting I’ve less faith in predicting Foster, but she certainly moves closer to Zengel and Bakalova for that 5th slot.

    In terms of what it clarified – Zhao, Boseman and Kaluuya are locked. I thought they would be, but this definitely crystallises that. I think the Globes was the least likely win for all 3 and them taking it means I’ll definitely have those 3 locked in my predictions. Also, Chicago 7 for Original seems a safe bet, whether it wins Picture or not, but I think the Globes suggests the love for that isn’t going to be as strong as we expect, so I think it’s definitely vulnerable to a Minari or PYW passion pick there.

    What’s strange is, this doesn’t actually convince me much more that Nomadland is winning BP. I don’t really put much stock in the Globes anyway, but there’s usually some sort of backlash against the Globe Drama winner and – – less quantifiable – it just feels slightly off, for some reason, like it’s one of those years where the Globe and BAFTA winner gets shafted come Oscar night. I dunno. I’m putting a fair bit of stock into PGA this year, I’m unsure where they’ll go, but I’ll probably predict their winner to take the Oscar.

    I know I have a late reaction but I’m delighted Mank and PYW went empty-handed LOL! richly deserving.

    I’m surprised by Jodie Foster, Rosamund Pike and Andra Day’s wins. I guess few people predicted them (or none at all).

    I’m happy for The Crown season 4 victory.

    I’m interested in your reasoning behind Bakalova, she lost in an extremely weak category when her film won its 2 other nods.

    I didn’t really say anything concrete about Bakalova, but she’s a Globe and SAG nominee, shortlisted at BAFTA, who did really well at critics awards so she’s obviously in contention for the 5th Supporting slot alongside Foster and Zengel imo, assuming Colman, Youn, Close and Seyfried are slightly ahead, although all four of them are also vulnerable. The fact it’s such a close race also puts Bakalova in a reasonably competitive position.

    I was just interested because she lost when she was the overwhelming favorite to win with all the facts you laid out.

    Fairs. It was a surprise, but not that big a surprise in my opinion, Pike’s been campaigning quite a bit, and the film is a fairly buzzy new release. I think Bakalova is on the bubble in Supporting Actress because of all those things I outlined, but the Globes loss and the general nature of the performance suggest to me she won’t get in, even though I don’t think she absolutely needed to win the Globe to get a Supporting nom.

    O I definitely think she needed the Globe win because it would mean that award bodies took her seriously.
