Yet somehow the same users again and again come out as soon as a project has been announced of hers and deem it as a non-starter or a flop. It’s strange. Either they’re fuelled by racial bias or are angry she won the Emmy over Taraji lol.
Wasn’t this show and her casting announced in like 2019? And ignoring everything hopelessstar has said about the other people involved in that cast & crew (which actually seems to have prompted his reservations), to only fixate on Viola feels like obvious race baiting to drag him for whatever reason and win the argument.February 22, 2021 at 11:20 am #1204054789
Yeah…kinda have huge reservations about this show.February 22, 2021 at 4:44 am #1204054062
I don’t think labelling anything as a joke exempts it from serious discussion but clearly not everyone agrees seeing the responses 🙄February 21, 2021 at 2:27 pm #1204053257
I’ve been watching The Queen’s Gambit again with some family and there was a line that popped up that said “to be a model you need looks but you also cannot be smart and need your mind to be empty”. Perhaps Rege-Jean should move into modelling instead of acting.
There are plenty of talented actors that have as many brain cells as an amoeba (see Letitia Wright). And I hope you are not calling him dumb simply based on his acting skills because that would be pretty ignorant.February 21, 2021 at 12:15 pm #1204053129
BIFA and Satellite are non-factors in Best Adapted Screenplay.
And NBR isn’t lol? The point being discussed was just about The Father having won things despite all the issues. No relevant precursors have been awarded yet so then bringing up wins would be altogether pointless in general.
The Father won Screenplay at BIFA against films that are nowhere near in contention for the oscar, but it lost the main award to one of them, maybe the british are not that here for that film.
You do realise BIFA and BAFTA (British Film) rarely match, right? Three Billboards failed to pickup a single above the line win at BIFA. I, Daniel Blake only won Actor despite doing excellently at BAFTA. Hell, Brooklyn didn’t even get nominated for best film at the former but then ended up winning best British film with nearly the same competition. Losing at BIFA isn’t the kind of strike it’s made out to be.
It lost at NBR to News of the World of all films. It’s going to lose at the Globes to Chicago 7 even though they loved that film. We all know Critic’s Choice will go with Nomadland, and WGA is irrelevant because neither film is in contention. I don’t see how you can consider it win competitive when it’s only chance is maybe at BAFTA.
So, The Father isn’t competitive because it has lost an award that hasn’t matched with the Oscars in 8 years, won’t be winning CC (lol), will be losing at the Globes to a stronger film that isn’t even in its category at the Oscars and will only be potentially winning at BAFTA, the most reliable precursor for this category in recent years that actually correctly predicted the eventual winner in a split race like this one (potentially) two years ago.

The Crown was not submitted this year.February 20, 2021 at 11:34 pm #1204052478
they almost never give it to play adaptations so The Father, Ma Rainey, and ONIM won’t win
These days play adaptations are rarely ever in contention and hence, nominated. Not counting Moonlight, you only had 4 play adaptations nominated this past decade and just three before that, nearly half of which weren’t even best picture nominees. This year you have three near locks in screenplay with all three having an extremely strong possibility of getting nominated for best picture as well.February 20, 2021 at 10:48 pm #1204052473
I think some voters absolutely will have this in mind when voting. Also, her role isn’t meaty/baity compared to redneck survivor grandmother, Korean grandmother with dementia, Kazakh Giuliani-exposer, and silent film star.
I’d argue her role is certainly meatier/baitier than Seyfried.February 20, 2021 at 7:46 am #1204051605
Exactly. The Crown isn’t sweeping. The HFPA rarely does sweeps.
True but the HFPA rarely gives shows six nominations as well. 5 different shows have won three or more acting awards at the Globes this century compared to just two shows (excluding The Crown this year) getting 6 or more nominations. So, while I’m not predicting it, The Crown achieving the same is quite likely seeing its strength in general this season.February 19, 2021 at 2:37 pm #1204050688
Some people here have the mental capacity of a 3 year old and it shows.February 18, 2021 at 9:39 pm #1204049291
When was the last time a movie swept Film, Actor and Actress at the Globes ? Assuming Borat will take Film and Actor, I believe Rosamund Pike or even Anya Taylor Joy (If they go with the Queen’s Gambit hype) could be potential surprises.
La La Land. Walk the Line, Chicago and As Good As It Gets also swept these three awards.
