    This is apparently the first time ever. GG, SAG, Critic’s Circle, BAFTA.

    Do you think this will become the norm? Are voters so caught up in predicting Oscars or are these four performances really just that loved?

    Coincidence? One was set to do that (Oldman), two were expected to deviate from the regional critics awards (Janney and Rockwell) and I don’t know about McDormand.

    Actress was definitely split. Actor was the only one set in stone, the general consensus i got was that Chalamet was only gonna win the globe and the rest was gonna go to Oldman.

    Pretty sure its gonna go to the globes voters heads that THEY decide the oscar winners and they are gonna feel godlike. Oscars might throw a bitch pls and give us a shock but i dont think its this year.

    I thought at least the Actress category would be interesting but nope. It’s gotten stale but maybe that’s because I stan for no one this season. Either way, it doesn’t bother me that much because McDormand is great in 3B.

    It’s a classic critics vs. industry debate and deciding which one is “correct” or not: the ones who decide things first and build consensus, or the last one that awards winners for all posterity. No easy answer for that, and maybe this is an odd year with the Olympics with everyone in a different voting pattern and rushing to build consensus. It might all change with the new influx of diverse voters who are voting later than usual this year. Who knows? I personally don’t see this as a new normal at all.

    Well, since it has never happened before like this, it makes a certain milestone. So I don’t think it’ll  become the norm. It seems industry made up its minds that these performances this year are awards worthy and rolled with it.

    I think the first part of what you’re saying was only ever a Gold Derby consensus, where people get carried away and try and anoint frontrunners that actually aren’t frontrunners (for example Liam Neeson was predicted for months to win Best Supporting last year and ended up being nowhere near the conversation). It happens every year.

    This year, groups just want to honour the same 4 performances and (rightly or wrongly) consider those 4 to be the best.

    @sasha “And trust me if the biggest losers of them all aka BFCA had ceremony before Globes we would have Metcalf, Dafoe and either Hawkins or Ronan as the winners.” Disagree with you on this one Sash. Janney would have won the Oscar regardless due to all the elements of her performance being so impressive and specific in how she played them. McDormand and Rockwell would clearly be winning since their movie is such a strong BP frontrunner that swept SAG. Given The Shape of Water’s failure to get even a SAG nod, it is clearly that group wasn’t as fond of that films actors as the Oscars were. Even then, American Hustle got 1 more acting nod than TSOW and didn’t win any of them. As for Oldman, he’s checking off all the boxes. British person portraying a real-life British legend? Check? Is the actor overdue? Check? Is the performance a truly transformative one? Yes, and I don’t believe simply due to all that makeup. He isn’t playing someone with a disability, but he didn’t need to. His performance feels all the more commendable given he was giving it in the shadow of John Lithgow’s Emmy-winning work as Winston Churchill. To give a performance that memorable that people wouldn’t roll their eyes and instantly negatively compare his Churchill to Lithgow’s was no easy feat. All 4 acting winners would be winning the Oscars regardless of BFCA, just like Get Out will likely be losing Original Screenplay regardless of its win from the BFCA, and more likely how The Shape of Water will lose Best Picture at the Oscars regardless of its win from the BFCA.

    No, she means the BFCA would not have the exact same winners as the GGs. They tried doing their shit first before everyone cause they wanted to have influence. That didn’t work, so they decided to be even more fucking stupid and have the ceremony after the GGs just so they wouldn’t look wrong. They’re all about looking “right” about their winners. If they were before, I guarantee you Metcalf and Dafoe would’ve easily won their categories. But nope, they went for ham cause the GGs set that shit up.

    The Florida Project and Lady Bird kind of bombed and no foreign lead actress swept through the critics.
