    I watched the Ellen interview of Andra Day and she said her stage name was actually inspired by Billie Holiday. She also said she’s never smoked in her life but started smoking cigarettes for the role because it was the right thing to do for portraying Billie.

    Girl like I said before if Lee Daniels made a competent film like Judy, Andra Day would be sweeping this. Frankly Day and Billie Holiday deserve better.

    Maybe Scott Rubin’s allegations will help Mulligan’s chances of winning considering Youn is winning because of Asian American violence.

    She won the BAFTA and Asian Americans do not reside in the UK it’s important you know that…

    And if Billie Holiday got released earlier and if there was a Makeup nomination to support it

    Oscar winners Emerald Fennell Daniel Kaluuya and Youn Yuh-jung

    gawd not another method actor… also did she mention anything about pursuing a career in acting other than saying she wants to work with Lee Daniels again?

    I’m getting this itchy feeling that Viola will win this category, which is so divided to the point that the bigger name may be checked off on a lot of ballots.

    I don’t understand such a late release date. It would have made more sense if the film was released in early February for the entirety of Black History Month.

    I think I’m gonna mull over this category for a bit before switching. Anyone wanna help me figure this out cause man I need help

    If you think Davis and Day will split the vote, go with Mulligan. If you think an ultra-baity role + a likely late viewing by Academy members lends itself well to victory, go with Day. If you think the need to honor a great veteran actress who also presents an opportunity to award a drastically underawarded racial group in her category trumps all else, go with Davis.

    As I’ve been thinking about this insane race more and more (and coming up with more and more outlandish angles…), I think it might be better just to keep it simple, and look at the performances themselves. So I’ve switched my vote from Mulligan to Day. If they actually bother to watch her movie, they won’t be able to resist – it’s just too well-executed Oscar Bait to ignore. The only thing stopping her would be Davis splitting her votes. 1. Day, 2. Mulligan, 3. Davis, 4. McDormand, 5. Kirby

    So eloquent. Love this comment. We know this is the same group that bowed down to HW every time they could. The mess is that they are probably awarding PYW with Screenplay but drawing the line at Cassie, “the bad woman who calls out pigs on their crimes”.

    I just watched the movie again, the chills of that ending

    FYC:

    Vitalina Varela, Vitalina Varela (Actress)
    Andrea Riseborough, Karim Saleh, Possessor/Luxor (Actress, Actor)
    Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, I Care a Lot (Actress, Supporting Actor)
    Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, The Duke (Actor, Supporting Actress)
    Sophia Loren, Abril Zamora, The Life Ahead (Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman (Actress)

    Day’s role is the definition of Oscar-bait. But will they sit through the whole movie?

    Nope didn’t even mention future acting projects. Pls she said she wanted an EGOT in the beginning of the interview.

    I don’t think the votes are gonna split like that, I don’t know if enough Academy voters are watching Billie Holiday, I don’t know that Ma Rainey’s is a strong enough movie to win 4 Oscars. This is what’s making it tough for me. I think I need a little more than that

    At this point I’d entertain an argument saying that Prince Philip’s death will remind people that Kirby was on The Crown and remind them of Pieces of a Woman lmao
