    What are the three acting performances you are surprised aren’t getting more awards traction? My top three are:

    Danielle Deadwyler- She still has a good chance of being nominated but I’m stunned that she’s not a slam dunk, right up there with Blanchett and Yeoh. This is brilliant acting in a classic Oscar bait biopic role.

    Claire Foy- Hers wasn’t my favorite performance in Women Talking but she did a great job with the meatiest role in the film, and she’s an actress I would have thought almost everybody loves and is waiting to welcome into the club.

    Jennifer Lawrence- There are so many lead actress performances this year that are worthy of recognition, and I didn’t think she’d crack the top 5, but Causeway is Lawrence’s comeback, it’s her best performance in about a decade, and I would have thought that Apple, which has the money, would have given her a bigger push. At the very least, I didn’t expect her odds to be 100 to 1.

    She is getting awards traction… just from critics.

    You shouldn’t really be all that surprised that it isn’t AS aclaimed as Blanchett or Yeoh… And that it isn’t getting into TV awards. Simply put, Till isn’t a notable film outside of Deadwyler’s turn. And Deadwyler isn’t Olivia Colman. And her character isn’t Whitney Houston or Marilyn Monroe. It was painfully obvious to me that it wasn’t going to do as well as some people were predicting.

    Stephanie Hsu is also getting a lot of nominations from critics groups – the second most after Condon in Supporting Actress…

    The reason a lot of these people aren’t getting awards traction should be obvious – a lot of these films aren’t big awards players – Rylance is the best example of this. If Bones & All was actually getting big nominations, then he would probably be in the same conversation as Quan and Gleeson.
