    And I’m glad you said that. I know I’m being a bit fan boyish with Hopkins, and if he loses the Oscar- I am glad he has some gold on his mantel.

    I understand that sentiment very well. I was really rooting for Michelle Williams to miraculously win the Oscar. It’s a shame there is always an amazing performance but it comes at the wrong time since it was Viola Davis year that year. Same with Hopkins. had this performance come out in a different year he would have been winning this year easily.

    PS- Are you really Michelle Williams campaign manager?

    LOL I wish. I’m just a huge fan of her work. You should watch the Carey Mulligan SNL monologue if you haven’t already, she made a joke how she gets mistaken for Michelle Williams often; it was adorable.

    Michelle (Yeoh, Williams) Oscar campaign manager.

    the BAFTA win for Hopkins + the Ma Rainey snub are strong signals and should not be ignored

    that being said, I’m going with Boseman ’til the end. That narrative is simply way too big. But yes, I’ll admit that I would love a Hopkins (or an Ahmed) upset.

    OHHH!! Okay well you’re so wonderful, and I enjoy talking with you. It does really get competitive and maybe that’s a good thing. We a year where SO many actors really did give great performances. And that happens other years, but I feel other years we usually have locks on everything save maybe one. And this time we have, I would say, one big lock- and that’s Daniel Kaluuya. I do think Glenn Close still has a *spark* of hope in which she gets the win because voters were waiting for the BIG night for her to win her overdue trophy. However, If she’s doing Sunset Blvd- then that’s the performance they might be waiting on. And she will of course, win for Lead- and not supporting.

    Best Actress is the hardest one. And I just keep going in circles and it’s crazy. I keep switching the winner and I haven’t had this many changes to a category since probably best Picture of 2015-16 (Big Short vs Spotlight vs Mad Max vs Revenant). And I picked Big Short based on PGA and lost, with Spotlight of course prevailing.

    I do enjoy being back and discussing these things because we all know the day after the Oscars, it’s sort of depressing lol! Because sure, we can reminisce about the ceremony- but the winners are out there and the suspense is gone. And we must go on with our lives 🙂

    Tentatively raises hand…

    There you go Eddy! IM Proud of you! Being honest and actually rooting for the performance because you liked it more!!!

    Uh, which means possibly Anthony Hopkins might not win. WHOA – I apologize to fans of The Father. I’m starting to see a lot more hands being raised. My God. They’re all over the place. I just had a guy whisper something in my ear. He said “The best actor winner will feel like a sound of metal.” I wonder what that means…

    But joking aside, Im glad you raised your hand Eddy! How are you, I haven’t been around for a while.

    My personal ranking of the performances:

    1. Riz Ahmed
    2. Anthony Hopkins
    3. Gary Oldman
    4. Chadwick Boseman
    5. Steven Yeun

    Well, that’s a solid order. I would put Hopkins first but still, it’s great to see Oldman above Yeun. Minari is far better than Mank, but Oldman’s performance is stronger than Yeun’s imo. People just feel tired of seeing Oldman in a (bad) award-bait film.

    I just watched The Father, the hype is real. Absolutely fantastic performance from Hopkins. I think if voters base it on performance, Hopkins has a legit chance of upsetting.

    I can’t decide between Hopkins and Ahmed in this category. They both brought realistic and heartbreaking performances. What a good year.

    I too am hoping for an upset, particularly from Ahmed. Personally, the performance by him was one of the strongest I felt I’d seen in the season. I know that the fact that Boseman passed away is a definite factor to consider in his winning, but I hope that doesn’t play too much of a factor in the voting process.

     

    Then again, this is the Academy we’re talking about. When have they ever done things the viewers have wanted?

    The vast majority of viewers want Boseman to win because we’re not sadists.

    That BAFTA win for Anthony Hopkins gave me a small tiny glimmer of hope that the Best Actor race can be salvaged… but I know it’s going to go to you know who – the only one who I don’t think ought to be nominated!!! Oh well, maybe next year will go better for me personally!!! (;

    You couldn’t bother to spell out Viola Davis’ name in the Best Actress thread and now you’re doing the same with Chadwick? I don’t want to read into it, but yikes. They have names!

    Where did that person saying Hopkins played Anthony more like a person suffering insomnia than dementia go? I had the perfect reply to them…

    You are reading too much into it – I really really really disliked Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom for a myriad of reasons. I don’t like the plays of August Wilson because I dislike his values, what he finds important, which I find problematic. I resent the lack of analysis of his plays and find them incredibly over-rated without a thoughtfulness about the value system that underlies them. I also just really didn’t like Viola Davis’s and Chadwick Boseman’s hammy performances and don’t think they should even be in the conversation as nominees this year. Having a minority opinion ought to be o.k., I get that most people enjoyed their work. I am resigned to their likely winning but am hoping for at least one surprise – most likely that could happen in Best Actress and not Best Actor because Chadwick being dead is too powerful of a narrative for the voters to vote for the better performances. Riz Ahmed is my choice and who I would vote for but it’s clear that Anthony Hopkins is the only one who has a real chance of an upset – a very tiny small chance!

    Steven Yeun is such a zaddy omg that’s all that matters. I wanna taste you king respectfully!!!

    But seriously, my vote goes to Boseman, he deserves it and this is the last time to honor him. He got this.

    It wasn’t even about that. I was about the seemingly intentional choice not to refer to them by their names while referring to everyone else by their names. You’re obviously allowed to dislike the movie and the performances.

    So many people are overthinking this. Boseman is not locked for the Oscar but he will still win the Oscar. It seems like people have forgotten how BAFTA snubbed Dallas Buyers Club acting Oscar winners or BAFTA ending Jeff Bridges sweep. Black Panther was nominated for 1 BAFTA. At the Oscars, Black Panther was nominated for 7 Oscars and won 3. AMPAS obviously loved Black Panther very much and that goodwill will translate to Boseman’s win at the Oscars. At the end of the day, BAFTA rallies behind their British veterans even when it goes against the eventual Oscar winners.

    Hmm, they obviously didn’t. It was seen/hyped-up as a unique achievement that has to be nominated for Best Picture. But it was snubbed all around the key categories. No director or screenplay mentions, no acting nominations. They have clearly seen the film as a critical achievement.

    FYC 2022 Emmys:

    Best Actress in a Drama Series: Sandra Oh in "Killing Eve"

    Best Actress in a Comedy Series: Sandra Oh in "The Chair"

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Kim Joo-ryoung in "Squid Game"
