    Viola isn’t the kind of nominee who fights for a 5th place and barely gets in and she definitely seems to know what roles will be Oscar players for her.  She got in with a < 10mn performance in 2009. Was the runner up and snatched half of the precursor awards in 2012. Completely swept the season in 2017. She doesn’t need to be in a “weak” year to be nominated.

    While I do agree to be in a big film is quite important, and will make for another significant marker in her career, continual Oscar nominations will, too. A fourth Oscar nomination for an African-American actress has not yet occurred, and sooner than later, I think it will happen for her. She has great projects lined up, and as long as the work is there, I hope she continues to be a part of awards conversation, and continue to make her mark in the industry at this stage, and at this age of her career.

    Oscar wins/nominations don’t mean a shit in terms of how much you get paid. Just ask 2-time Academy Awards winners Dianne Wiest and Hilary Swank. And as Viola has stated recently, she’d like to get bigger paychecks. And to achieve that you have to star in box office hits. So for her it’d be better if this movie actually makes money than gets awards traction. She already has her Oscar, now she’d like to see those seven figure paychecks.

    Viola cares about awards. Now if she wants more money demand it from ABC.

    I’m annoyed Spencer is able to trail behind her in this category of nonwhite actresses accumulating Oscar breakthroughs with nomination count. The Help is such a vexing vehicle to me but every actress from it has benefited somehow from their association with it. Stone and Janney are now Oscar winners alongside Davis and Spencer.

    Yeah, Viola has made it pretty clear that she cares about awards. The sole purpose of Fences was to give her her first Oscar and possibly Denzel’s third. The setup was perfect and she hardly got any flack for it since her performance was undeniable

    Spencer is doing a great job at riding the hype of the prestigious movies she stars in. And since her performances are generally pretty showy and sassy she never gets denied

    We love Octavia, and she’s great. But, the significant marker of Viola’s nominations would be the RARE feat at this point of the game, still, for an actress of color to have a lead nomination. This is not to discount the achievements of Octavia. But let’s not ignore the fact that there are only, still, but very few women of color to have been nominated in lead, let alone more than once. As I write this, there are are none….

    Two questions.

    1) Right now, AwardsCircuit’s Oscar prediction not only has Viola Davis getting nominated for Lead, but also Michelle Rodriguez getting nominated for Supporting. Is Michelle Rodriguez an actress that is overdue for a nomination? I haven’t really seen much of her films.

    2) There is speculation that Viola Davis will campaign for Supporting instead of Lead because the film’s cast is an ensemble. Do you think she will do that, much like she did with Fences when at least some initially thought she would campaign Lead?

    Someone who saw a screening said Viola is 150% LEAD

    Michelle has been in the game for a while. I can see her getting nominated, but that goes for any of the ladies

    Unless you’re a really overzealous fan of The Fast and the Furious, no.

    This. Viola will absolutely campaign for lead for Widows. Several people who’ve seen the film confirms Viola is THEE lead. It seems as though the plot is done from Veronica Rawlins, perspective), and when the additional widows come into play, they encompass the rest of the story.

    Spencer being carried with subsequent nods distorts on paper her capacity. Only 11 Black women in best actress in 90 years!
