    This won’t affect the nomination or potential win for the POAW ladies or Colman or Hopkins but I’m wondering if we’re underestimating a potential influx of comedy nominees this year due to how bleak the year has been?

    For example I have Rashida Jones ahead of Elisabeth Moss now because even though Moss has the buzzier and more acclaimed performance The Invisible Man remains a horror film whilst On the Rocks is a film about a 40 year old woman and her father which is more appealing to the Academy and is a film we know Academy members have watched. You could say by that logic I shouldn’t be predicting Mulligan but Mulligan and Moss are in two completely different circumstances with their films.

    No, I don’t think so.

    Intriguing.

    You know what’s interesting about this year is how despite there being a pandemic there are much stronger performances in contention in this category than last year. I mean the ones in my personal lineup this year so far (Blank, Garner, Jones, Mulligan, Moss) have given much stronger performances than 3/5 of my personal lineup last year lol.

    I wonder, when they are voting, do they rank their favorite performances or do they just vote for 1.

    Best Picture is a ranked ballot; the other categories are decided via popular vote.

    I think they vote for 5?

    Do they rank the performances for preferences or do they vote for 5 nominees and 1 winner?

    I thought it was the popular vote by ranking to avoid a tie?

    Day/ Davis/ Kirby/ Mulligan/ Loren is my top tier now

    McDormand, Winslet, Pfeiffer, Zendaya, Flanigan is a good second tier.

    I cannot imagine Streep getting anything. Maybe GG in comedy/ musical

    Just looking at that clip online for Nomadland has me thinking that the film will deal with homeless camps. Living on the Westcoast of USA myself, homeless is a huge issue and many are one paycheck away from being there. McDormand might win over hearts with that alone.

    If not McDormand, the movie itself will definitely win hearts for this

    I’ve seen it twice and you’re correct. It definitely does. There’s this fantastic mini-monologue that McDormand has at Strathairn’s son’s house, in response to a realtor, about the American economic system. It touches on homelessness quite a bit.

    FYC:

    Picture: Nomadland
    Director: Chloe Zhao
    Leading Actress: Frances McDormand
    Leading Actor: Anthony Hopkins
    Supporting Actress: Olivia Colman
    Supporting Actor: Daniel Kaluuya
    Adapted Screenplay: The Father
    Original Screenplay: Minari

    I can’t speak for most countries, but living on the Westcoast, there are tents on every other block with people living in them. There are small communities full of homeless people. Nomadland might be their voice.
