While the race is starting to take shape, I think there are several actresses who have a shot at the nomination and most certainly the win so it’s fun to see it unfold. Out weighing the pros and cons are fun too. But I have to say I don’t know if I buy the dubbing being a huge strike against Viola or any actor or actress these days, especially if they contributed some of their own vocals. I doubt many Oscar voters entertain such a thought. Especially if they are passionate about the performance..October 20, 2020 at 1:23 pm #1203791863
As someone else pointed out earlier, voice dubbing won’t necessarily ruin it for Viola – it didn’t for Cotillard, and Viola is a much bigger name now than Cotillard was then.
To be fair, Cotillard was literally someone else. You barely could see it was Cotillard playing Piaf. You only saw Piaf.
By the looks of trailer, you can see its Viola Davis playing Ma Reiney.
But maybe that’s just me.

I was predicting McDormand but her performance is too subtle and she’s already got 2 lead Oscars. Whereas Violabis overdue for a leading win and only has one Oscar, plus she has a much baitier performance and the BLM narrative.
here we go…..

At the moment I only see Adams, Davis, Kirby and Mulligan being competitive for the win (I’m not going to repeat why I think for Mulligan because that would be too repetitive). I’m not buying Andra Day and Loren’s nomination will be her prize imo (if she gets one).
If Amy wins the Globe she probably is sweeping. Especially if Mulligan loses the Comedy/Musical Globe (which I’m not predicting right now).

I have to laugh at the people who think Viola is losing but then think Jennifer Hudson has a chance of winning. I just… I’m baffled.
Both are Best Supporting Actress winners and Oscar darlings in their own right. After seeing the Ma Rainey trailer and the Respect teaser, Hudson‘s performance looks just as – if not more – meaty than Davis‘s at this point.
It will also be interesting to see what happens politically in January and February. Aretha was a Civil Rights icon. With plans for Respect to release on MLK Day, just prior to the inauguration, Hudson‘s performance could gain a lot of momentum due to the cultural and historical context of the subject matter.October 20, 2020 at 2:12 pm #1203791948

Cotillard was absolutely undeniable.October 20, 2020 at 2:13 pm #1203791950
Jennifer Hudson is the perfect example of an Oscar one hit wonder since she never even came remotely close to a second nomination. She’s not an Oscar darling, she just happened to win with the right performance with weak competition
She’s nowhere near Viola’s level when it comes to industry recognition. And clearly not on her acting level either

Is “Respect” coming out in December?October 20, 2020 at 3:12 pm #1203792164
Watching the trailer for Respect was like watching Effie White. I honestly am not interested in the film but she could pull a Cynthia Erica and get nominated based on the icon she is playing.October 20, 2020 at 3:17 pm #1203792187

Assuming you mean Erivo, this comparison is A+ for so many reasons, lolll.

The fact that we are even discussing Jennifer Hudson is laughable.October 20, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203792249
here we go….. Viola Davis doesn’t need “the BLM narrative” to win.
Maybe not, but it will help. There’s more pressure to award a black actress in Best Actress this year then ever before, especially since there’s only been 1 Black winner in this category and they were widely considered to be undeserving.
