I don’t necessarily equate wearing gold with expecting to win but, given this wide open year if that were the case they should all be wearing gold.

https://twitter.com/tribernna3T/status/1386461287870341128 Youn and Glenn Close just met for the first time this is so wholesome you guys <3
Glenn is so gracious. Youn is rightfully winning and without knowing what Glenn said it appears she’s already congratulating her.
Side-note: I find it odd how they hug and then Glenn moves away as if to be distant.April 25, 2021 at 4:13 pm #1204222682
What time do announcements begin? Awards times are always killer in the UK and ordinarily I’d sleep through the chaos but this year.. I need to know, but I have work at 8am.April 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm #1204208163
As a victim of rape, and with several friends having similarly experienced sexual assault (to varying degrees, all without a satisfactory legal outcome), I would love to see Mulligan win. I just cannot see AMPAS rewarding her on the whole. She may have passion from a small but vocal group. But equally she will have those who are passionately against her because maybe it brings attention to past behaviour they’d prefer to forget. Her biggest hurdle isn’t the awards she’s lost, it’s the still biggest demographic within the academy: older who’re men. This is not to accuse all. But many, probably, have been guilty of some version of events seen, or alluded to, in the movie.
Whilst I would give this to Mulligan, I hope Davis pulls off the win if not. To those obsessed with her screen time: I was thinking about her whenever she was off screen. That isn’t down to anything but Davis’ incredible portrayal. Which actually makes it more impressive given her limited screen time.
I’d also be fine with Day – her film was terrible but she was exceptional – though I do have an issue awarding somebody with no intention to continue acting (a separate discussion – would somebody like to make a thread on one time nominees that then gave it up?), Or Vanessa, or McDormand. The fact she has two acting Oscars aside, which Academy members will struggle with, her performance here is extraordinary. She seems to have rightfully stepped aside to focus on the film as a wider player and for this I think the vast respect she has will only increase. This will eventually translate to a third acting win. She seems to do more than her peers for underrepresented talent, despite her no comment on Rudin. She seems more focused on backing up her latest acceptance speech, which I admire, if it helps real change.April 17, 2021 at 1:04 am #1204204921
I really don’t think voters will care that Mulligan has signed up to do a film with Adam Sandler. Besides, he seems to be pivoting with his choices, too. Way too much speculation going on here – next Sunday needs to hurry up and put a stop to all this wild theorising.April 7, 2021 at 1:46 am #1204183197
De Armas’s follow-up film to Knives Out is a Netflix film called The Gray Man co-starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. Shooting has already begun in LA. I also agree she’ll get a lot of offers once Blonde is released, but I’m disappointed TGM is going to be her post Knives Out film. It doesn’t sound interesting. I’m sure she must have gotten other offers, and it makes me wonder why she chose it.
