    The academy snubbing Boseman for Da 5 Bloods should just be proof that he’s nominated for Ma Rainey because of his amazing performance, not because he’s no longer with us, as some people have condescendingly suggested. If they were voting for just his name, he would have snagged a supporting nom for D5B.

    I agree. I don’t think they voted for him on sentimentality, which is why they snubbed him for the Da 5 Bloods and nominated him for Ma Rainey.

    Unfortunately, this is also why I think he will probably lose because the Academy might want to vote solely for the better performance in Hopkins.

    Exactly my logic. These voters do not care about narratives. They’re gonna vote for their favorite performance. Chadwick is still going to get a huge chunk of the votes, and he can still easily win, but the wide-spread love for The Father and Tony’s performance in particular are giving me pause. The Day-Hopkins combo is making more sense to me with each passing day.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict Hopkins, though I think it’s about 50/50 at this point. The Fathers probably the most watched Best Picture nominees in the last 2 weeks, and Hopkins has had so much buzz since his BAFTA win (just at the right time for voting).

    EMMY FYC

    The Crown in all categories (inc. Olivia Colman & Gillian Anderson)

    I May Destroy You, It’s a Sin, Stateless & The Queens Gambit

    Kate Winslet, Keeley Hawes, Shaun Parkes, Marielle Heller, Michaela Coel

    Ted Lasso & The Flight Attendant in all categories.

    I doubt there inviting a dead black mans family who won sag golden globe critics choice during the Black Lives Matter Era for him to loose to a white man who already has a Oscar.

    This is so reductive. It does a disservice to both Boseman’s performance and Hopkin’s performance.

    Chadwick is not winning because he died. Or because his family might give an emotional speech. He is winning because he gave an incredible performance.

    Likewise, Hopkin’s win would be anything but white mediocrity. He truly gives one of the best performances of the year and would be a very deserving winner.

    Chadwick clearly gave an outstanding career best performance in Ma Rainey’s. Anyone convincing themselves that his death is the sole reason for an inevitable victory is in denial.

    He was always on the cusp of Oscar glory. The industry loved him and were throwing every role his way until one eventually stuck as an awards player.

    August Wilson adaptations = bait. So whether he had passed or not, his name would’ve still been in the conversation to win.

    FYC: “Peaches” by Justin Bieber in Best POP Duo/Group Performance lol

    I think he would still have been nominated but not the frontrunner and winner.

    Hopkins would be winning. Chadwick would win if Hopkins were not in the race. Maybe Riz would be also before Chadwick to win. But Chad would definitely have gotten a nomination and top 3 to win.

    lol no im not saying he’s winning cause he’s dead im saying Hopkins probably not winning if they invited the best actor front runner Chadwick who’s happens to be dead family to the Oscars to loose to Hopkins who not even attending.

    Y’all overhype Hopkins performance y’all act like he revolutionized the art of acting good performance would be deserving of a Oscar but let’s no act like it’s just because Chadwick dead when he Acted his ass off and put his literally last of his life knowing he was dying into his powerful performance in Ma Rainey.

    The NBP team put out their predictions and all but 1 are predicting Boseman. (Idk how accurate they usually are though)

    There must be a combination in everything. Yes, he’s not nominated for D5B, and his cameo-like appearance won’t help him to get that, but supporting had much more obstacles to overcome. I mean look at how creative The Academy was by putting both J&TBM lead into supporting. Meanwhile, lead actor category had only six people in contention. Plus, the campaign is really focused on him in lead category (many even forget he’s running for supporting).

    Honestly, it feels like Hopkins-Mulligan combo becomes more realistic each day. I hope that is what’s happening this Sunday.
