    With all due respect, it’s telling that the people still thinking that Oldman can miss are those who are most unimpressed with Mank. My own reaction to it is conflicted, if mostly favourable, but performances like Oldman’s just don’t get snubbed when they’re in such an across-the-board Oscar magnet as this.

    Honestly that’s fair, I do think my personal preference is definitely influencing my thinking, but just last year we saw De Niro get no love and I can honestly see Mank as this years The Irishman, it might get a lot of nominations but I don’t anticipate m/any wins (Seyfried possibly) — So, personal preference aside I still think Oldman is vulnerable.

    Maybe it’s wishful thinking but I have Boseman / Hopkins / Ahmed / Yuen / Holland. Holland I’m just running on gut feeling that his performance in Cherry is going to be better than expected, and I just don’t see Lindo or Da 5 Bloods being remembered come February.

    FYC:

    BEST ACTRESS — CAREY MULLIGAN
    BEST ACTOR — RIZ AHMED

    Oldman did very well, he deserves the nod, but I’m not mad if he misses to some unrecognized talent like most of the actors competing with him.

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
    Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series
    Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
    Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
    MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.

    I’m sure this has been brought up elsewhere but De Niro in The Irishman is completely different; his role wasn’t very showy, it was superficially similar to some of his other roles, and there was the de-aging controversy that many thought hindered his performance (Pacino’s and Pesci’s transformations were somewhat more convincing). Oldman, however, has a lengthy drunken monologue that ideally rounds off the performance (from a typical awards voter’s perspective). If there’s any equivalent to Oldman from last year it would probably be DiCaprio, who like Oldman was also coming off a recent win; there was some chatter on these forums about how he could miss out, but it never came to anything, he was solidly positioned for a nom all along but with no chance of winning. Oldman is in a similar position this year I think.

    Edit: Also what wins for cinematography or production design if not Mank? I could conceive of Nomadland for the former, but draw a complete blank in the latter.

    The way I have to wait until January for <i>Sound of Metal </i>to come out because Amazon is not distributing it here…

    Darlings, there’s no way on Earth that Screenwriter gets snubbed… It’s a close  race between Black Panther (for obvious reasons) vs Demented vs Screenwriter.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    All this. People comparing Mank to The Irishman forget that the former most likely will win at least 2 awards, and is at least top 2 right now in costume design, editing, director, screenplay, score and supporting actress. I think it’s very unlikely to win picture on a preferential ballot since it’s very divisive, and I could even see Fincher lose director since all the the members vote for the wins, but I think the director branch will love the film and I think he will win DGA.

    I know you’re a fan but Screenwriter doesn’t stand a chance in this race, Prime Minister.

    I think it’s hilarious that people think that a Boseman win would ruin the “integrity” of these awards, as if they’ve ever had integrity. We all know that Weinstein essentially bought Shakespeare in Love’s Oscars, and stars like Joan Crawford have influenced things behind the scenes for much more insidious reasons than sentimentality. Are you really going to get up in arms over the fact that a man is given one trophy after his untimely passing essentially for inhabiting a role that became a beacon of inspiration to millions of people all over the country in a way that Hopkins could never even hope to be? Maybe this is a bad thing to say on Gold Derby, but at the end of the day, it’s a pretty wall ornament, and they’ll just give out more next year. Get off your high horse.

    I also have Tom Holland in because he has 100/1 odds and you never know.

    Welp, I decided to watch Mank and I really think Oldman can miss for this… his performance isn’t that impressive and voters are going to have a harder time finding sympathy/empathy for his character than actors Boseman, Hopkins or Ahmed… Of course then again the older voters and more let’s say uptight voters are going to LOVE him. I really don’t see the fuss with Mank in general if I’m honest.

    Oldman is going to be nominated, Hollywood loves the roles of people with drinking problems and addictions, Dudley Moore, Denzel Washington and Jeff Bridges are just a few examples.

    Exactly. A nom seem really possible, though the win is beyond reach.
    Also, I can totally see Chadwick winning if Viola is winning and making history again, like Washington and Berry did when they won best actor and best actress respectively.
    I can see Ahmed missing, even if he’s getting great reviews. Being the first Asian nominated in leading might prevent that and the idea of diversity by Academy voters seems only more black talent nominated in technical categories (I hope I’m completely wrong since he’s been killing it for more than 15 years).

    FYC:

    Best Actor:
    Delroy Lindo - Da 5 Bloods

    Best Actress:
    Sidney Flanigan - Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Sir Ben Kingsley is half Indian, half English. If ever Ahmed will get nominated he is not the first.
