    My concern with Bombshell is that it’s going to be too hard to balance the tone. They’re all enablers of a fascist propaganda network and if the movie can’t balance that truth with with the sympathy it has to show them as sexual harassment victims, it’ll fail. The easy way out is to just gloss over the fact that it’s Fox News and make it bland and simplistic as a result.

    But then again, Green Book. Really not sure how much to take quality into account anymore.

    I have a feeling Goldderby will be stanning hard for Pugh come January.

    Pugh stan since Fighting With My Family here.

    Thats a good point. The tv show got lukewarm reviews since the tone was all off. And this is Jay Roach we are talking about.

    I’m hoping Alfre Woodard stuns and gets a nomination for Clemency. I know she’s been forgotten already but a miracle can still happen.

    FYC:

    Chromatica: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album.

    Rain On Me: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video.

    Alice: Best Pop Solo Performance

    This Academy ignored her for Passion Fish to make room for Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny.

    Every year someone wins for playing a real life person. Only year this decade that hasn’t happened is 2016.

    If Adam Driver wins Best Actor

    Laura Dern wins Supporting Actress

    And Brad Pitt wins Supporting Actor

    Then that means Theron, Erivo or Renee are he only possible winners unless there’s a 2016 repeat which is rare.

    The obstacle for Theron is that she’s playing a very disliked real person who is more or less the protagonist (?) of the movie. I don’t know how it will pan out, but if Kelly is portrayed as too much of a victim or hero in the movie there will likely be a reminder of her racist comments in the past. This is more complex than Bale as Dick Cheney who can more or less just be categorized as a horrible person and the crowd can move on.

    why does it have to be based on the likeness of the fellow portrayed? Isn’t it supposed to be a performance thing? The way you guys judge performances is just totally wrong.

    They said Tonya Harding isn’t liked…that killed Margot Robbie’s award changes despite giving the best performance in that year.

     

    If Charlize gives the best performance, let her win. Period

    I read that Megyn Kelly isn’t portrayed as a hero in the movie.

    Alfre Woodard is not happening. Her movie has that Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool release Date. By the time her film comes out all of the contenders will be set and done.

    i didn’t say I personally wouldn’t award her for playing Kelly, I’m just saying it’s going to be tricky to win an Oscar for playing a real life person when the real life person is hated yet not the villain of the story. This is not my personal opinion, but rather an obstacle I can see in the awards campaign. In fact, I like Charlize, but I’ll go on record saying there’s no way she wins an Oscar for playing Megyn Kelly. Nomination sure.

    This is the worst way to predict. No one is going through their ballot and saying I HAVE TO VOTE FOR THIS REAL PERSON OR ELSE!!! And there are no locks to win in August lol.

    Then, you don’t know the trajectory of winning an Oscar (lol @ Margot Robbie when she didn’t even give the best performance in the movie). Playing an extremely dislikable real life person can be detrimental to the win, especially if you’ve already won before.

    I understand what you all are saying but the logic is all bad and that’s one of the reasons these award shows are sinking. Playing a likable character increasing one’s chances of winning, that’s really bad. It’s supposed to be based on performance. I’m sure Meryl Streep got in for The Post because the woman she was played was highly likeable.

     

     

    As for Robbie, who else gave the best performance in I, Tonya? Puleaseeeeee… Robbie was everything in that film. So much diversity in her role and yet she delivered. The scene where she told the judges to suck her dick and the court room scene alone should have gotten her the Oscar.

    But that is how it is and we can’t change that as much we might want to, so if we are objectively analysing Theron’s chances of winning then we can’t ignore such a thing.
