    I am glad that SBC’s buzz in this category drastically dropped. He has no business being anywhere near a nomination for this performance when he was probably only, at best, the 4th strongest person in his ensemble.

    Art is subjective but I just can’t see how anyone could watch any of the other 4 here and then go “Well, SBC blew me away”.

    SBC benefitted from having 2 films in Oscar consideration. Voters chose the role with more prestige.

    I would seriously have 0 problem with his nomination if it was for Borat instead of Chicago 7.

    And the irony now being that the role from the “less prestige” film might end up being an Oscar winner (Maria) while the other doesn’t.

    Cohen benefitted from people thinking he couldnt act. When he showed a modicum of talent, he profitted.

    SBC winning anything is a nod of respect from the Academy for the size of his cojones, not necessarily a credit to his acting or contribution to the high arts. And there are many narratives at play beyond merely acting performance as these pages keep reminding us.

    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    People are polarized on here about their thoughts on Mulligan, Boseman, Davis, Ma Rainey, PYM, Close, etc., but the one thing there seems to be a GoldDerby consensus on is the disdain for The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Sacha Baron Cohen performance. I’m a big fan of both.

    Concerning Baron Cohen, I respect all your personal opinions, but I do not agree on the logic that he was only nominated because of Borat or because “people didn’t know he could act.” The latter is especially strange of an assumption, because actors who set a low bar and surprise audiences with a strong outing (Sandler last year, Ferrell in Stranger than Fiction, Rogen in 50/50 or Steve Jobs, and especially Jim Carrey in The Truman Show– a film that otherwise got lots of Oscar love) almost always get ignored. The idea that the Academy loves “comedians that go drama” has seldom been proven in recent years. Despite the echo chamber on these forums that has decided it is an impossibility, there are people such as my self who absolutely saw SBC as Chicago 7’s X factor. In fact, when my family of actors and I watched the movie in October, we all felt his nomination was inevitable. It was special.

    You don’t have to like the performance or movie, but the accolades this year demonstrate that there are plenty of people (such as trained actors and critics groups) that have gravitated to his performance, and I can guarantee that there are many GoldDerby members lurking these forums too afraid to say something positive about it. Should he win? I don’t think so. But I’m thrilled to see the nomination.

    I agree the Oscars don’t give a damn about comedians Oscar hunting the vast majority of the time. SBC is very, very lucky that he got an acting nomination.
