So which winners will receive standing ovations at Sunday’s ceremony?
I would say that Frances McDormand definitely will and Gary Oldman probably will.
I’m not sure that I see them standing for Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney, but I could be wrong.
Might wins by James Ivory, Roger Deakins and Agnes Varda get the audience to stand?
And will they welcome back Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway with a standing ovation?
Your thoughts?March 3, 2018 at 5:38 am #1202504657
Supporting actress will too regardless of the winner.

Obviously Oldman and McDormand. Ivory maybe, Deakins maybe, but what if the first female cinematographer nominated ever, Rachel Morrison, actually wins? Id expect a standing O for her as well.
The supporting actor/actress categories are trickier to nail on that. I reckon if it was actually Dafoe winning, he’d be getting a big one. I’m also unsure about Janney.March 3, 2018 at 5:45 am #1202504661
I’ll be surprised if James Ivory doesn’t get one. Also, if Jordan Peele wins anything I think he seems like a perfect “standing ovation” kind of win.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMarch 3, 2018 at 6:22 am #1202504694
Oldman and McDormand will definitely get standing ovations, as will Roger Deakins if he finally snaps his Oscar losing streak. I’m with Teridax on Jordan Peele seeming like a “standing ovation” type of victory. It’s hard to argue that he doesn’t deserve it, though.
I think there is a chance that Sam Rockwell will get a standing O tomorrow night. The guy has been one of Hollywood’s most respected character actors for over 30 years. The celebrities at the Oscars will probably be as happy to see the guy finally get some recognition as many film lovers are.March 3, 2018 at 6:48 am #1202504713
James Ivory and Agnes Varda – they are both 90 years old and both are legends of cinema (Merchant Ivory for him, and the sole female director of the French New Wave movement)March 3, 2018 at 6:50 am #1202504715
Everyone? These days standing ovations don’t mean a shit. But in the seventies, eighties or even nineties they meant something. Now they give them away like candies.March 3, 2018 at 7:42 am #1202504754
They give standing ovations to everyone these days, as if the seats were electric chairs.March 3, 2018 at 7:54 am #1202504763
I say all acting winners, Ivory, Varga, and maybe Deakins.March 3, 2018 at 8:13 am #1202504772
They stood up for every damn acting award last year it was getting boring and meaningless. Made me sort of glad that huppert didn’t bother standing for stone.March 3, 2018 at 9:46 am #1202504810
Remember Meryl getting a standing o last year for being called overrated by Donald Trump. That was hard to watch.March 3, 2018 at 10:03 am #1202504822

As Gain said, I expect Meryl Streep to get an ovation just for being there.
Part of me anticipates that Guillermo del Toro will invoke the Dreamers in his acceptance speech, triggering a standing ovation.March 3, 2018 at 11:56 am #1202504860
There are so many standing ovations these days, I’m going to assume that was probably just for some stagehands that accidentally wandered into view.
