    The NBR gala will be held on January 11, 2022. Does anyone know if the cast members of the top films attend the gala?

    Best Actress is so stacked now with Zegler entering with NBR. Any chance Comer is frauded into supporting like LaKeith Stanfield?

    FYC:

    Swinton, Weerasethakul Memoria, (Best Actress, Director)
    Efira, Rampling, Wilson Benedetta (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)
    Rapace Lamb (Best Actress)
    Stewart, Hawkins, Spall Spencer (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)

    I liked this but it also felt like a film that was two thirds good. The first act was dull, the second was more fascinating but uncomfortable (and I don’t think it was for the reasons intended) whilst the third was absolutely riveting. Nicole Holofcener really is such a fantastic screenwriter.

    I thought Comer was absolutely phenomenal in this. It’s not my favourite performance of hers but the performance she gave here is the equivalent of most performers’ career best turns. She really grounds the film with her presence to really immerse the viewer in Marguerite’s plight and for us to create an emotional understanding of her character. Would like to see her receive recognition for this although at the same time I won’t be too bothered if she doesn’t because she’s already won as a performer by giving this type of a performance and with this amount of industry and audience exposure.

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    Not my favourite perfomance of hers too (maybe is for the lack of screen time), but I agree that she really won as an performer and somehow gaining exposure when it comes both in the industry and audience. Jodie is developing a nice path in her career.

    There’s still chances of her in BAFTAs? Aside of her perfomance in Help.

    Do you think she and the film might do well at the Baftas outside of  just BA? (Adapted screenplay, Best British film, Ridley for BD). What about the WGA?

    GD interviewed composer Harry Gregson-Williams. He said he wanted Marguerite’s theme to have a vocal element, and he used medieval composer Thibaut de Champagne for inspiration. The 3 characters all have their own themes with Jean’s theme starting out “quiet and heroic” with “warlike drums.” He wanted Jacques’s theme to be “haunting and strange.” Source: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.goldderby.com/feature/the-last-duel-composer-harry-gregson-williams-video-interview-1204615773/amp/

    Quite possible. Not Ridley because directing is juried but I can see the film be the type of gritty “under appreciated” contender we’ve seen the membership gravitate towards like <i>First Man</i> and Nocturnal Animals.

    I’m also of the opinion that Jodie’s performance here is probably ranked third in her career behind Killing Eve and Help.

    I’m just gutted that her work isn’t getting as much attention as other British starlets Florence Pugh and Vanessa Kirby did when their performances got acknowledged by the Academy. They’re both terrific actresses, but I’d take Jodie over both of them any day.

    Hope the BAFTAS acknowledge her and the film in several categories, including adapted screenplay and Best British film. I’m not confident in the Academy showing recognition. Her performance deserves to be recognized more than some of the other actresses in the category, and I’ve seen the films they’re in.

    She is the actual “underdog” this year.

    Jodie would be a bigger contender had she been placed Supporting, she could have been a top 3 contender there

    It’s all about circumstances tbh, Florence was in a supporting role in a best picture nominee whilst having her lead performance snubbed to genre bias and Kirby had raves from the get go in a pandemic year setting her as a one of the locked 5 despite users constantly saying she wouldn’t happen. Still mad she didn’t win the bafta.
