    Getting ready for Oscar no.5 next year:

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    The way Frances came through with no type of campaigning is a choice.

    Andra, Carey and Viola really worked their tails off to win that Oscar.

    I think the recency of her BAFTA win + the fact that her movie was such a big player at the Oscars + the fragmented race really worked in her favor.

    I wonder if Frances would have won BAFTA with Mulligan and Davis nominated.

    I don’t think she won because she won BAFTA. I think she won because academy voters genuinely liked her performance and this was an open race and she was in the BP winner. A bit like Bong Joon Ho in directing last year. This was the logic I used to predict Mulligan (except I obviously wasn’t daft enough to predict PYW in Picture lol I stayed with Nomadland) but it makes more sense that McDormand was the one who did this instead.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Promising young woman was legit the “Get Out” of this season down to even winning the same award.

    Real question is will Mulligan catch a role this juicy again. Seems like this was her oscar to lose and   all she could muster was that bfca.

    I believe she would.

    She’s got two big projects coming out in 2022 (a mystery thriller and a Bradley Cooper helmed biopic about Leonard Bernstein where she plays his wife) so the answer is yes.

    I do too. But I meant more that I wonder how much her BAFTA win gave her a boost in support. Sorry for the mis-phrasing.

    Looked back, and of those 17 lead nominated films Meryl has, a total of…2 won something outside of herself. Out of Africa (and they weren’t gonna hand her a 3rd Oscar for under a decade onscreen) and The Iron Lady.

    Frances, like Katharine’s repeat wins, won while her Best Picture nominee got another major Oscar. I wonder what lead roles there are that Meryl turned down because they were less baity but their movies ended up more accoladed on the whole.

    Most actors don’t even win for their best roles. Watch Mulligan win supporting for a basic wife role. The Oscars are basic hun. They barely give awards to interesting female characters.

    I mean the last time an actress won for playing against type it was Theron in Monster.

    Natalie Portman was the last time I was legitimately excited for a Best Actress winner. Been too long. I am happy for Frances though.

    Those definitely seem like nom worthy roles, but dont seem as juicy.
