    Richard Williams being ‘less known’ will only benefit Smith. It’ll give audiences an opportunity to appreciate his performance on its own merit without comparing him to the real life figure. Just like Will did with Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness.

    But it also reminds me of how cruelly the Academy has snubbed Bichir ever since he first got in. It’s so sad. He’s given fantastic performance one after the other and been overlooked. What more do they want?!?! 🙁

    Award season curios don’t turn into mainstays because they’re good or better afterwards.

    Judging from that panic attack in the bathroom, I wouldn’t discount Leonardo DiCaprio in “Don’t Look Up”.

    Nicolas Cage is still a strong possibility for Pig. I know the movie will divide — it’s incredibly odd but compelling.

    He gives me Ethan Hawke in First Reformed vibes.

    He has more clout than Hawke does with voters. People miss him being a “serious” actor.

    Pig is even smaller than First Reformed tho so I think the comparison is fair

    I have a feeling Cumberbatch will be the frontrunner from the beggining to the end of the season like Gary Oldman 4 years ago in that awful movie nobody remembers.

    OMG, Gary Oldman was great, the movie wasn’t awful just OK.

    Cumberbatch is definitely the one to beat. But I gotta say: I feel like that Vanity Fair article gave away too much. Not totally, of course, but his character has become less mysterious than the interactions with Plemons, McPhee and most of all Dunst, in a film meant to be a character study of Phil and Rose but also all 4 of them.

    Good for everyone who is not keyed in to GD or awards sites lol

    Director: Jane Campion, Rebecca Hall
    Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch

    Richard Williams doesn’t have a very high profile, not a lot of people know who he is and probably only know him if they’re deep into tennis or sports in general. Granted, neither does Leigh Anne Tuohy and nor did she have any profile until the movie or the book it was based on came out. Biopic performances that win are usually portraying higher profile people as Crabbie said. King Richard has to either be nominated for Picture or Will Smith has to be so much better than everyone else in competition. I can’t really see either of those scenarios happening.

    I love Sandra but she wasn’t better than the actresses in her category.

    Tiff called Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance in ‘The Electrical Life of Louis Wain’ as his career-best and I think we’re underestimating this movie/performance.

    Cumberbatch i like his personality his movies i like his acting skills a really good actor . Im excited he’s doing method acting in the power of the dog and i already know he gave a tour de force. So it’s nothing against him lol but calling anybody the one to beat this early in award season (that’s extended) and is just not my thing it reminds me of Carey mulligan last year lol. It’s just not my thing to see someone as a front runner or the one to beat when all the competition is not even yet to be seen. But like i said i know his performance is probably good but award season just got started lol it’s anybody’s Oscar right now.
