Davis is that rare lead that people think is supporting otherwise the rest seem like the same old pattern of dropping down a category to win.
This will make four years in a row Supporting Actor will go to someone arguably a lead.
This is almost like the infamous “Rooney Moore” year. Someone call Diane Ladd.February 25, 2021 at 4:30 am #1204060407
Daniel Kaluuya…..I saw Judas & the Black Messiah last Saturday and then saw The Little Things on Sunday. Kaluuya does a great job but is a lead actor. Jared Leto is truly a supporting actor and also does a great job. Too bad he may miss out on a nomination due to category fraud.February 25, 2021 at 4:38 am #1204060411
I voted Kaluuya. I don’t consider Sacha Baron Cohen or Viola Davis category frauds but I do also see Maria Bakalova as a category fraud.
But the real answer for me here is the entire four person cast of <i>One Night in Miami</i>. They each hold a similar amount of weight to the story and each of them felt just as prominent as the other. They all either should have competed in supporting or all in lead.
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")February 25, 2021 at 4:56 am #1204060421
None of the ones I’ve seen are fraudsFebruary 25, 2021 at 5:17 am #1204060455
Viola Davis is co-lead so she’s not category fraud.
My vote is Daniel KaluuyaFebruary 25, 2021 at 5:23 am #1204060467
Amy Adams in the category of Best Actress.

Andra Day should be winning Best ActressFebruary 25, 2021 at 11:27 am #1204061290

Kaluuya is definitely co-lead and there’s several moments where he actually feels more lead than Lakeith.February 25, 2021 at 11:47 am #1204061322
Maria Bakalova and Daniel Kaluuya
Best Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)
Best Actress: Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)February 25, 2021 at 11:56 am #1204061345
Kaluuya is category fraud, but not as egregious as previous winners like Brad Pitt and Mahershala Ali.
I vote for Bakalova because she would be safer for a nomination if she was campaigning in lead.February 25, 2021 at 1:04 pm #1204061547

With Andra Day receiving solid-to-great personal mentions in most reviews, I don’t think that’s the case anymore. In lead categories prestige bait tends to win out over irreverent comedy.February 25, 2021 at 10:45 pm #1204062239
I wonder why critic’s groups don’t stop the frauds since they are the first awards out of the box.
Poor Joe Pesci, he probably was second last year. That would be the second time he lost to a fraud. He could have had three Oscars. (if he had still won for Goodfellas if he had won for Raging Bull.)
Odd how the Globes stood up to Borat and stopped that fraud but let the others slip thru.February 26, 2021 at 4:56 am #1204062463

I think it was a campaign decision by Amazon to submit for the Comedy Actress category, where Bakalova had an easier shot at a nomination and win. The HFPA merely agreed to it.
