    ^I was referring to Fox as the distributor for The Post.

    Apparently according to Chris in the Editor’s slugfest The Post’s SAG screening was really full and they let journalists in before the Nom Com members waiting in line. Chris said there was lots of grumbling as the journalists filled in the seats that would have gone to SAG nominating committee members.

    Plus the SAG committee had to return some letter back in September signing an affidavit or something accepting the encrypted screener for The Post. There’s been stuff on twitter where people are saying they forgot or missed the deadline to send back the form so they didn’t get a screener.

    I think all those things just slowly chipped away at The Post’s vote totals.

    It’s a given she’ll be nominated. What the SAG snub did was prevent her from winning.

    Frances McDormand is the one going to be snubbed, but at the BAFTAs. Indie films have a hard time with the distribution and release in the UK. Also Judi Dench is a given there, just like Ronan and Hawkins. Streep has gotten a nomination everytime her movie is acclaimed, British related or both. Robbie is Australian and they tend to fare really well. This won’t prevent McDormand from winning the Oscar, since the SAG nomination is much more important to get than the BAFTA though.

    I think that there are only 7 women who could possibly be nominated at the Oscars: Hawkins, Ronan, McDormand, Streep, Dench, Robbie and Chastain. Streep has faced much longer odds than that, and I think that there would even be more of a narrative around Chastain and Robbie, because neither have won before (Robbie never even nominated) and their films have been more warmly received.

    It’ll come down to BAFTA.

    Does Robbie show up?

    Does Krieps upset the apple cart?

    Or will BAFTA submit to the holy powers of The Post?

    No. She was nominated for playing a Disney villain. This SAG snafu is just that.

    Judi Dench was wonderful in Victoria & Abdul, a sequel to her first Oscar nomination for Mrs. Brown (1997). What she has going for her for a nomination is what I call the Brit actress slot, where Charlotte Rampling, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Julie Christie, to name just a few, get a nomination. Particularly this year there are no foreign language actresses in the conversation (although there should be, they just haven’t gotten any traction).

    i respect this great lady, but every year we have to accept the fact she is in contention for an Oscar, and she breaks her record of nominations at the same time, i cannot afford to see her again and again… i hope she ‘ ll get snubbed this year !…

    Where is Daniela Vega going to come from? National Society? She has made zero impact during the race, her film might have made the shortlist, but it’s getting nominated in places just like any other foreign film on each list. It’s making no special or relevant impact outside of that. She’s not famous like Huppert or a legend like Riva (in a film going for big categories). She’s not well known like Cruz, she hasn’t been present during the race like Bardem or a previous nominee/winner like his second FL nod. She’s not in a BP contender like Barraza or Kikuchi. And she’s not in a Cotillard situation at all.

    This is the biggest most ilogical wishful thinking of the season. Has she even been seen out there? Is there any real promotion for the film or a true campaing going for her? Mya Lastname from Tangerine had more buzz.

    Not Daniela Vega? I haven’t seen A Fantastic Woman, but I hear she gives an truly incredible performance in it, the film just made the Oscar shortlist for the Foreign Language Film category, and it would be flat-out awesome to finally see an openly transgender person nominated for a major Oscar category, let alone ACTING! The progressive message I believe that could send throughout the industry is unimaginable. Wishful thinking, or a remote possibility?

    D-Veg hasn’t got a prayer of pulling a Fernando Montenegro in a competitive year like this. I wish the door was finally opened for transgendered thespians to get nominated for Oscars, but an unknown Brazilian in a foreign indie isn’t going to break that glass ceiling in a year where there are around twenty big Hollywood stars queued up for a Best Actress nod.

    I’m hoping Streep gets snubbed. I love her but ugh its getting boring.

    Seriously, doesn’t anyone else find it weird how one person can  be nominated so much in ACTING, a form of art that is soooo subjective. Its ridiculous and suspicious that she is always a “contender” at these things.

    The nomination is for the best of the year, not lifetime. Streep won’t be snubbed and if anyone can defy the odds/history it’s her. She would very well still win the Oscar. Anyone of the 5 can win. No clear frontrunner and if votes split between Mcdormand, Ronan and Hawkins then she will surface to top.
