    I don’t think the acting branch failed Glenn. I think the British voters screwed her over.

    Sally Hawkins and Rosamund Pike are sad now.

    I’m more than fine with the category placement of The Favourite ladies. IMO, Queen Anne really was the central role. Both Churchill and Abigail were vying for her attention and were centering their actions around her. Abigail seemed like a central character who gets things going, but she really did seem to have equal footing and screentime to Sarah. I think it makes the most sense to have all three women considered leads, but if they were to move one role into supporting, I would pick BOTH Sarah and Abigail as the supporting roles sharing the same billing and Queen Anne being the lead. I just think she was the emotional center of that story really.

    The Hours, OTOH, made no effing sense other than Oscar strategy and Moore having Far From Heaven.

    How did Meryl not get an oscar nomination for The Hours? I know she had Adaptation but if she was campaigned lead there’s no reason for her to not get in (apart from Nicole, but still)

    because for once, she gave the worst performance in the movie. Although it’s prob her best movie this century lol

    I think it really had to do with Salma Hayek getting a lot of push for Frida  with Harvey’s backing (with Hayek writing in detail what Harvey put her through throughout that whole ordeal, a nomination is the least she could have received for it) and Meryl was the most vulnerable one out of the contenders.

    Nicole was NOT losing out not with all that campaigning, goodwill from her loss the previous year, and that prosthetic nose showing she was a “serious” actress willing to tone down her beauty for a role (IMO, that nose was so unneeded in retrospect and cheapens the performance to me). Renee Zellweger had way too many fans of that movie to not get in. Diane Lane and Julianne Moore were the critics’ darlings with Lane winning critics awards that Moore was not winning. We know critics aren’t enough (ask Toni Collette or Sally Hawkins in 2008) but there was way too much buzz about their performances, at least more than Streep.

    I also think Streep probably had the least enjoyable character of the three in The Hours. I mean I know some people thought Moore’s character was utterly selfish, but they could understand why she was crying and stuff being a lesbian forced to live that hetero lifestyle in the 1950s. Plus, Moore’s character was not up for lead so it didn’t matter if some thought Moore’s character was more annoying. Also, I always found Streep’s scenes to be directed oddly in terms of tone or something with the other actors (Danes, Daniels, less so with Janney because Janney for her split second part livened things up a little). Streep didn’t really seem fully comfortable with that role even though her character is supposed to be all jittery and overly emotional and stuff.

    weinstein prob didnt prioritize her since most of the buzz went to her co-stars with the critcs at least. They were gonna use the Poor Nicole post-divorce strategy to help Nicole win anyways so she became an afterthought I guess.

    i Think she was accidentally submitted lead in SAG for adaptation so that’s why she wasn’t nominated for either films there

    Patience is a virtue.

    She will win on her 8th nomination.

    The Wife was NOT it. That performance was terrible. The movie was trash.

    Coleman deserved the win.

    I disagree that she gave the worst performance in the movie. And it certainly isn’t her best film this century. Adaptation is.

    But why she missed? She got into supporting. And she missed SAG, which killed her momentum. And she missed SAG due to a stupid submission error. Streep was submitted in LEAD for both Adaptation and The Hours. Once they realized that, it was too late to correct it. And she split the vote between two hugely popular films. Her performance in Adaptation was better, it’s actually brilliant. But I believe she would have gotten into both categories.

    Her performance wasn’t trash and frankly the film did every bit as well on Rotten Tomatoes as Still Alice. But critics called this the best performance of her career. It was very hard to pull off. Colman didn’t deserve it but once she got BAFTA I could see the writing on the wall.

    I think doing 33 Variations which doesn’t deal with gender issues and portrays a woman dealing with her relationship with her daughter as well as her impending death and trying to complete a masterpiece of her own would likely garner her a win. It offends no one. It’s written by an acclaimed playwright and has a juicy role.

    Beloved this was the cruelest possible outcome for a veteran to get a shocker Golden Globe win, followed by support from Critics Choice, SAG, and the Spirit Awards.

    I think the saddest part was that some here are totally celebrating Colman’s win and Close’s loss as a sign of Oscar rewarding pure performance over performance + narrative or pure narrative. The sad part to me is it’s not like Close herself hadn’t been a victim of losing out to candidates based on factors outside of performance including overdue narratives in the past. Now that she finally gets to benefit from it somewhat, the Academy decided to go a different route. I also think it’s hilarious that a poster said patience is a virtue when you have hot young things walking into an Oscar on their like first/second try. Hell, Colman did just that.

    Pacino scored his 7th and 8th at the same time if I recall well. The Favourite = The Hours in terms of category placements, two of the most egregious frauds both starring three women (for the record I do think Ali in Green Book is totally supporting).

    Imagine thinking the Favourite has egregious frauds while also thinking Mahershala Alead as supporting in Green Book is fine category placement. I can’t.

    Mahersala Alead winning 2 Oscars in 2 years, Regina King winning without SAG or BAFTA noms and Malek winning on his first nomination in a bad movie just make Close’s loss more of a slight.
