I’m still predicting Andra Day to win tomorrow night at Critics ChoiceMarch 6, 2021 at 6:56 am #1204087674
Moss is going to have a hard time getting Best Actress nom in any year and the reason why is cause she’s seen as a TV Actress which holds better for her in supporting.March 6, 2021 at 6:59 am #1204087687
Sorry to interrupt,but is Sasha Stone a full blown racist /Trump supporter now? I really hope this isn’t true as I used to admire her but have you seen her Twitter post recently?March 6, 2021 at 7:09 am #1204087698
I get sick of the biopic stuff too- the Academy loves this and it’s not just Best Actress. Since 1998, the Academy has honored an actor playing a real person with at least once of it’s winners. I was reading about how Glenn Close doesn’t like the whole technical aspect of playing real people and I agree: overly mannered, channeling/mimicry is a turnoff for me. Cate Blanchett in The Aviator is a good example of this.March 6, 2021 at 7:23 am #1204087712
The only biopics deserving of wins were:
Charlize Theron in Monster
Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose
They took the biopic performance to a whole new level and no actor has been able to touch what they accomplished.March 6, 2021 at 7:38 am #1204087744
I have to agree that constantly favoring biopic performances needs to stop. Last year, Lupita Nyong’o was ignored despite giving one of the boldest, what seemed like one of the most challenging performances of the year, but she was held back because the movie and the type of role(s) weren’t in academy’s wheelhouse. But they’re obsessed with biopics and people playing real-life people, so I won’t believe in a change of taste until I see it. And that’s not to say that performers who fit their bill aren’t deserving. Olivia Colman was absolutely deserving and so is, IMO, Viola Davis this year — though neither contended/contends for a biopic.
Exactly! Even tho Toni Collette got badly snubbed for one of the best performances of the decade in Colman’s yearMarch 6, 2021 at 8:13 am #1204087792
I just found out that Andra Day’s name is Cassandra, Mulligan’s character name, it would be a sign?March 6, 2021 at 8:41 am #1204087835
Well if carey wins this year. Halle berry could win best actress next year for bruised.
A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

Well, Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington were both seen as TV actors before they made the transition to leading men in movies, and won Best Actor Oscars. And certainly Helen Hunt was seen as a TV actress before she won her Best Actress Oscar. My sense is that the TV/move acting distinction and bias is eroding.March 6, 2021 at 9:04 am #1204087870
It’s refreshing that she seems most genuinely interested in daring, challenging roles in independent movies that had no chance of being seen without her in it! But I agree, she deserves more recognition.
I love that tbh. She’s really developing an incredible range.March 6, 2021 at 9:07 am #1204087885
guys how are you watching all these movies outside of the US btw? i’ve been trying to watch promising young woman for weeks and have still not found any link. does anyone have a source?March 6, 2021 at 9:12 am #1204087898
I think this race really depends on if Davis wins at SAG because if she doesn’t then I think it’s either Day vs Mulligan or Day just wins the Oscar.
If Mulligan wins SAG + BAFTA then it’s probably over but I wouldn’t call her a lock for the win even in that case. Andra has a very strong narrative that would be foolish to ignore.
