    Anyways my gurl is a 7th time nominee. The loss for The Wife will even resonate more than the ones for DL and FA. She’s so winning next year.

    Eight time Academy award nominee (and winner) Mrs. Glenn Close.

    Depends on the role but Glenn Close looks like a lead / co-lead in Four good days and supporting in Hillbilly Elegy?

    Of course she’d be nominated over Ervio. Win is tough. Renee clearly has lots of fans for her performance. Close has massive overdue narrative but dont know if that would be enough. I could see it playing out very similarly to how it went down with Close taking GG-SAG-CC and Renee winning BAFTA and Oscar.

    No, I don’t think so. Renée’s sweep this year is also a “Vote for Judy!” sentimental win that the Academy can feel proud of itself for doing in righting a past “wrong.” It might have been hard for Close to combat an easily palatable biopic performance of a beloved musical icon in a middling film.

    Renee’s performance is a juggernaut that Colman’s never was.

    And yet, she won. And she would’ve won this year too, just not in a “surprise” scenario.

    I have this feeling she is not going to win. Ever. They can deny her an 8th time. Meryl will probably make sure of that lol

    Judy has it all

    – Biopic

    – Story about a Hollywood star

    – Similar to Renee’s story (sort of)

    I mean, no way.

    Judy doesn’t have it all. It has a great comeback performance as a legendary figure. Outside of that, it doesn’t have much going for it.

    I think Glenn would’ve won if she was competing this year, but Renée might’ve pulled it off anyway. Close was well received in The Wife, but the real passion for her was for her overdue narrative, not her actual performance. Zellweger is indeed helped by the figure that she’s portraying, but most of her passion is due to her actual performance. If the votes were based on performance, Renée would probably win, but it certainly looked like Glenn got close (accidental horrible pun) to winning last year against a performance that was far more acclaimed than Zellweger’s, and in a much bigger contender, so I say Close would’ve won out this year. We can’t really know for sure just how close (again, sorry) she was to Olivia, but her victories at the Globes and SAG make me think she wasn’t too far behind.

    She’d win lol, Renée was a weak frontrunner, she wouldn’t be able to take down Glenn’s overdue narrative.

    Colman in The Favourite would not have beaten Zellweger in Judy.

    Everyone is delusion in this thread to believe Close would be stronger in the season prior or currently than the one she competed in. The fact that Gaga and an Indigenous woman were in the category is enough to let you know Close did have a fighting chance in hell of actually winning.

    Why wouldn’t she? Renée’s narrative is more based around her performance than Glenn’s, and Colman’s performance was definitely more acclaimed, and her film is a way bigger contender. Also, Glenn’s narrative was much more pronounced and stronger than Renée’s, so if Colman can beat Close, she would’ve beaten Renée.

    I don’t see the category as weak. Every contender in best actress has an angle to justify a win.

    Renee Z — The performance, comeback narrative, honoring Judy Garland’s legacy

    Charlize Theron — Transformative makeup, topical, overdue for further Academy recognition, playing a real person

    Cynthia E — Historical figure, expanding the racial ratio for the category since only one nonwhite person has ever won

    Scarlett Johansson — Double nominee, overdue for these nods, rewarding her while everyone is warm enough to acknowledge her

    S Ronan — Should have beaten McDormand for Lady Bird, young starlet with enough technical prowess to garner four competitive nods for acting
