erik davis – Both Daniel Kaluuya & LaKeith Stanfield are terrific & awards worthy, but Dominique Fishback steals every frame she’s in
kyle bunacham – Daniel Kaluuya and Dominique Fishback are incredible in JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH
matt neglia – Dominique Fishback is the emotional center of this film. Was really impressed with her affecting work. The entire cast is tremendous!
trey mangum – Also, Dominique Fishback is GREAT
yolanda machado – Daniel Kaluuya, Lakeith Stanfield, and Dominique Fishback deserve all the awards for JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH. Performances are A+
robert daniels – Dominique Fishback, especially, jumped out on my second watch. I do have some issues with the film’s scope, but I don’t doubt anything else.
She’s coming.January 12, 2021 at 10:56 am #1203979810
Her lack of name recognition may hurt her but imo there’s no way Fishback is outside the top 8 right now.
I am also slotting Maria Bakalova in for the first time. I thought she might end up being the Tiffany Haddish of this season but she just showed up at the London Film Critics Circle today so that hints to me she has a great degree of strength and momentum going for her. She could ultimately miss out but it feels foolish not to consider her.

Fishback is COMINGGG hell YES!!!
Seems like I was wrong about Lyonne but I’m glad I was ahead of the game here.January 12, 2021 at 11:02 am #1203979846
Dominique Fishback looking good. That trailer even makes her look as co-lead. So excited to see Judas!

I have a feeling that in general the Academy will ditch the older typical nominees in favor of fresh new faces in this category. Hopefully the new members as well as the diversity board bring some change.
How boring and typical it would be if the likes of Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Olivia Colman and Jodie Foster get in over people like Maria Bakalova, Dominique Fishback, Yuh-jung Youn (older but still a fresh new face!) and Olivia Cooke.January 12, 2021 at 11:07 am #1203979863
I think the nominees will be 5 of these 7 (listed in alphabetical order).
Dear Gold Derby, please add Ibrahima Gueye to the prediction center 🙂January 12, 2021 at 11:09 am #1203979874
The duo is made even stronger by the understated and resonating work of young Dominique Fishback. Not having as much screen time as other supporting actress contenders is the type of work you can blink and miss if you’re not looking for it. Looking at past nominees like Catherine Keener in “Capote,” who received a nomination when her screen time was also lacking, she could find her way with no hiccups in the 2005-2006 awards season. As it stands, Fishback is one of the only Black performers in the supporting actress race, with all our hopes of diversity in the lineup resting on the shoulders of Yuh-Jung Youn in “Minari.” If that fails to materialize, an all-white supporting actress lineup is inevitable. We can hope voters consider what Fishback brings to her role, especially in the film’s heartwrenching climax.January 12, 2021 at 11:10 am #1203979886

That new Judas trailer is completely made for Fishback and Kaluuya. It’s like they knew clearly who they’re gonna push in this award season.

Burstyn and Colman are safe imo but otherwise I agree with 24fanatic. Bakalova, Fishback, Youn and Cooke all are dark horses who I think all are in the top 10 based on the momentum of their performances and/or the strength of their films.
I personally don’t see Glenn Close even in the top 10. Hillbilly Elegy came and went, doesn’t really have the audience hit narrative going for it so much anymore
, they hate herand I have a feeling the current political circumstances will hurt her. I don’t think Academy members will feel comfortable (after what happened at the Capitol) in voting for a film based on a memoir by a known eugenicist and Trump fanatic.

Which is why I said there is no way she is outside the top 8.
