    Hillbilly Elegy and Sunset Blv. Two completely opposite roles. One is a resilient whip-smart matriarch in a poor family. The other is a crazy actress fading in Hollywood. Two very juicy roles and can very well earn her a double nominations in the same year. Which one seems to be more hopeful for Close?

    Currently, I think Close has a better shot at best supporting actress for Hillbilly Elegy. It seems to be a safer category, and Hillbilly Elegy is still being updated while we have heard nothing else from Sunset Blv since the news about the director.

    Why not make history and win both?

    Impossible in this age lol. Just let her win a best supporting actress and call her an Academy award winner is enough for me!

    No she really should win Best Actress- if The Wife could somehow also compete next year she should just win for that lol. Sunset Boulevard could be a complete bomb.

    Supporting Actress is the mercy we need. Every group that gave her wins this season would do the same for a supporting race including the groups that didn’t: BAFTA and the Academy.

    It’s extremely hard for Glenn Close to win leading now considering how stacked best actress races have been recently. And the movie seems to encounter various problems during its pre-production process. Hillbilly Elegy should be a safer choice. It is from an Academy award winning director and Netflix seems to have fought hard to acquire it because they knew its potentials. Unless Amy will also be supporting and Netflix push her instead.

     

    I know this would be a shame because Close is bound to leading roles all her career and it would be terrific for her to win a role she has always been passionate about and will undoubtedly kill. But an Oscar is an Oscar nonetheless. Better win one than none.

    The Academy screwed her out of a career prize in lead this year. And a mercy for Glenn seems comprehensible in supporting.

    She doesn’t need the oscar to prove that she is one of the best actress of her generation.

    Quick question: Do we think Hillbilly Elegy will be released in 2019? I believe I saw that Ron Howard said he would be shooting in June, and I know he was able to turn around The Post by end of year within a similar timeframe.

    We could be in a situation then in which Glenn has three consecutive Oscar nominations. I could envision a situation with her winning Supporting as a make-good, and then possibly also winning Leading the following year depending on how good she is in Sunset Boulevard.

    The Post was directed by Steven Spielberg.

    Emmys 2019: I stan Amy Adams, Mahershala Ali, and Jason Bateman.

    Oscars 2020: I stan Robert Downey, Jr., Alan Silvestri, Willem Dafoe, and Dean Deblois.

    Emmys 2020: I stan David Harbour

    The Oscars need some serious backlash after what they have done this year.

    This is what i don’t understand with these awards. They are supposed to go with the most deserving, meaning the ones with critical acclaim reception (performances or movies themselves).

    There must be a correlation between the winners and the critics reception of the performance or the movie. When BoRh is winning the most awards in a ceremony, i’m sorry but there is clearly something wrong, considering its critics reception.

    The critics aren’t right about everything- it should all come down to personal taste at least ideally. They should shut down all the precursors just for one season to see who the Academy would nominate without anybody telling them who to do so.
