Which is quite plausible/possible. She’s already started some press for the film Monday, and has already sang his praises. I’m sure this is only the beginning of campaigning for the late great Mr. Boseman from Viola.
I agree, DCurrie. Viola will go hard for him. They’ve already started her promo train as well. She just did press on Monday, and mentioned Chad several times, and of course, praising his performance.October 22, 2020 at 6:56 pm #1203797442
Who has the juicer supporting role out of Turman, Domingo or Potts, I wonder?October 22, 2020 at 9:33 pm #1203797593
Probably Turman. When the play was revived on Broadway the actor playing that role got a Tony nomination (the only one that production received.)October 23, 2020 at 8:14 am #1203798227
I actually think this might help Viola, as Boseman is no longer the lock he appeared to be. Before I thought his seemingly assured supporting win would’ve hurt her chances. Now that his odds are more unsure, her’s might go up.
That’s how I feel. Before it felt like the Academy had to award Boseman, since Supporting Actor was so weak and his oerformance was easily the frontrunner. Now they can honor him by giving him a Lead Actor nom, but still give the win to the more acclaimed performance, which is Hopkins. Then, Viola can easily win because she won’t be overahadowed by Boseman’s success and the acting branch won’t feel that Ma Rainey is overrewarded. This has really made Viola much more of a lock than she was before.

The beauty about Viola’s near likely forthcoming nomination for Best Actress, let alone possible win, is it’s a win/win for her regardless. If she is nominated, she will have broken her own record she currently shares with Octavia in being the first and only African American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award, more than 3 times. In her case, if nominated, two for supporting, and 2 for lead. That in itself would be an astonishing achievement! Also, now that her day job is over, she has more free time to complete some of these pending projects of hers. Some of them that are likely to land her right back into the Oscar conversation. In essence, she’s in a great position, win or lose, come this Oscar season.October 25, 2020 at 7:06 am #1203801288
I can’t wait for this to start screening! Now less than 2 months of its release!!November 1, 2020 at 1:28 am #1203814150
Someone said it has been screened. But I’m guessing there’s not much talk yet due to there being an embargo.November 1, 2020 at 1:35 am #1203814152
I don’t know whether it’s actually been seen, but if so, there’s undoubtedly an embargo.
Oscar FYC -- Give Viola Davis her second Oscar!November 1, 2020 at 10:53 am #1203814807
Yeah, I’m sure if it hasn’t been already, it likely will be within the best week. It’s already November. Just a little over a month before the movie is released.November 3, 2020 at 12:15 am #1203817387
Do we know if this is going to screen for AFI?November 3, 2020 at 2:12 pm #1203818270
I’m so excited for this movie man. I love everyone in this cast, and don’t get me started on Queen Viola and King Chadwick! I’m glad they got to work together at least twice before he departed this world so soon.November 7, 2020 at 5:33 pm #1203822625
