    She did not, she also lost critics choice to glenn & gaga.

    Right, but in terms of individual critics awards, Colman had received a majority of the accolades.

    Colman bc it was so unexpected at the time. We had her as the blueprint for what happened this year with Boseman and Hopkins. One either paid the comparison dust and ended looking the fool or took it to heart and called it.

    I was more shocked that Colman won. In retrospect, I should have seen the signs that she would upset Glenn, but I dismissed her GG win because Glenn had a fantastic speech, and I thought BAFTA was doing it’s British thing.

    Glenn had the overdue narrative going on, and despite being the movie’s sole nomination, I thought she would win because Julianne Moore was in the same boat a couple of years before.

    Also, Olivia Colman had a relatively low profile stateside and was unable to campaign properly because of filming obligations for The Crown.

    I think a lot people thought that if there was an upset, it would be Gaga.

    On the other hand, many people thought Boseman would win, but in the last couple of weeks there was an Anthony Hopkins upset brewing. The anonymous ballots were also tilting towards him. It’s still a shock that Chadwick lost, not surprised that it was to Hopkins.

    Only one category was thought to be such a sure bet they broke decades of tradition to schedule around it. There’s your answer

    Predicted both of these and Colman was definitely a bigger upset. As someone said, Colman vs Close was the blueprint for this race so I was generally more at ease with my Hopkins prediction.

    No expert, editor or top 24 user predicted Colman. She had nearly the same number of people predicting her as Lady Gaga smh. More people here predicted Spike Lee to win director or Richard E Grant to upset in supporting.

    What makes her upset even better is the fact that The Favourite was literally tanking that night after losing the three awards it was actually expected to win. That win truly was a moment.

    I never really processed the fact these performances could’ve gone Oscar-less because of sympathy narratives, two very good decisions from the voters.

    As for who’s upset was bigger, Hopkins was. He wasn’t considered for a second whilst Chadwick was sweeping. However Colman won the musical / comedy globe early on & everyone knew she was likely to win BAFTA.

    People really need to forget about narratives, the Academy just don’t care, if you like what they choose good bu if you don’t, screw you is their choice.

    Neither. Close came from a boring film. Hopkins was not a surprise to me and I picked him as soon as I saw the movie.

    Colman because Hopkins we knew was happening thanks to the former incident

    Awards trajectory: Hopkins
