    Something I wonder, if either Emma Stone or Rachel Weisz were campaigned in lead instead of Olivia Colman.

    Would either have managed to win their second Oscar if they had been placed in lead?

    Stone was the lead IMO but I don’t think they’re going to win. Maybe Weisz but that’s it.

    They wouldn’t overcome Blunt, whom would have been the biggest threat,

    Both would have easily prevailed at the Globes. I agree that Close would have won the oscar tho

    No. Especially for Stone as she won as a Lead 2 years prior.

    No way… first, They wouldn’t overcome Blunt, whom would have been the biggest threat, then Close would have won SAG easily and possibly BAFTA, and then nothing would have stopped her from prevailing. The race would have been over at the GG. Stone was never winning actually lol. About Weisz, well she needed a strong support from critics like Olivia Colman, both were meant to fail.

    Nah, they’d def prevail over Blunt at the Globes lmao, Weisz would’ve easily won the BAFTA as well. I agree that Close would still win SAG though.

    There wasn’t any role better suited than Mary Poppins to win in that category. Sine qua non Colman was out. Don’t you think.

    The only way Blunt would have won is if both Stone and Weisz were campaigned in lead. The would have split the vote and Blunt would have prevailed over them. Otherwise, since Mary Poppins Returns underwhelmed everywhere, Blunt was DOA.

    Let me get this straight. Olivia Colman gave the most acclaimed performance in the film and narrowly defeated Glenn Close after losing SAG, but Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who both lost supporting to someone who was not even nominated by SAG or BAFTA, supposedly would have won in lead?

    Stone would only have won an Oscar for The Favourite if she had lost the Best Actress Oscar for La La Land. I pretty much agree with Weisz’s supporting placement although I now don’t think that she should have been delegated to supporting with the other two in lead as it would have minimized her contributions to the film. I think the way they campaigned it with one woman in lead and the other two in supporting was the best/most proper strategy. They could have put Stone in leading and Colman and Weisz in supporting but I’m glad they took a risk and got Colman the Best Actress Oscar.

    I have to say that I wish Fox Searchlight had campaigned harder for The Favourite. There were some great ads for it but I just feel that they could have worked harder to get the film recognized. It seemed that they went for a more held back behind the scenes campaign which ended up not paying off as much for the film. I think that if they campaigned more they could have won at the Globes. Considering the diverse creative team behind The Favourite it’s weird that it lost the Golden Globe for Best Musical Or Comedy to Green Book and I also don’t understand how it lost Best Screenplay to Green Book and how Green Book even won that category in the first place.

    Blunt could not even overcome herself if she wanted

    I think the Globes very easily could have honored Blunt as they do like musicals a lot. I don’t think Blunt would have made it at the Oscars though.

    She won BAFTA tho, it’s less impressive considering the fact that BAFTAs were the last precursors to be given. She has benefited from her win there, then she had a big push just before voting period begins.

    I do not know what point you are making.

    No. Stone was not winning anything for this role/performance. Just stop.

    People are putting way too much stock into Weisz’ BAFTA and BIFA awards….British awards. She was always going to be runner-up. A lead placement for her would have been the biggest waste ever, since literally no one except the British wanted to give her an award for this role. Glenn Close would’ve easily won.

    Colman won the Oscar in a head to head battle with overdue Glenn Close, who damn near swept the televised awards. That should tell you how strong she was.

    If Stone had been put in lead and the other two in supporting, do you think Stone would have been nominated? I think Colman would have still won in Supporting even with Weisz as competition.
