Given Harriet is not a flop and Erivo puts up a good to great performance (which is all but given), the campaigners need to go hard on the narrative that only one black woman has wone best actress and it was nearly twenty years ago in Halle Berry. If they do this right, I think Cynthia Erivo can and probably will sweep the seasonDecember 12, 2018 at 5:53 pm #1202699792
I wonder if we’ll see Arquette sweeping the end of the year TV races if Adams starts winning on the film side for ViceDecember 12, 2018 at 12:00 pm #1202699531
As you all know I hate political corectness but in this particular case I say: good riddance. Not only this man really has homophobic views but what’s most important he’s as funny as menstruation.
lol exactly how I feel, don’t like the reasoning but perfectly fine with the end resultDecember 12, 2018 at 11:51 am #1202699507
I feel like despite a SAG shutout and other stats against it, Roma is still going to win Best Picture because quite frankly what else would?
ASIB is a fourth remake and is getting backlash. I don’t see the Academy uniting behind the fourth telling of a story for its top prize.
The Favourite and Vice are both too divisive it seems (although in my world The Favourite would be winning)
Green Book tells a story of racial inequality through the eyes of a white man, that isn’t going to happen in 2018.
Personally, before today I didn’t see why Beale Street wasn’t being taken more seriously for a win but after today I understand.
That really only leaves Black Panther, so if its the MCU Action Movie vs. the black and white foreign language film, the Academy goes with what makes them feel like more intelligent movie watchers.December 12, 2018 at 9:51 am #1202699273
I love the Laurie Metcalf/Regina King comparison. Unlike less year, however, I’m not too upset about it. Lets get Amy an Oscar!December 12, 2018 at 7:25 am #1202698842
I don’t think Hawke is dead, I think theres a three-way fight for that last spot between him, Washington, and Gosling.December 12, 2018 at 7:23 am #1202698831
Every other race is more confusing than this one post SAG. I think we have our fiveDecember 10, 2018 at 9:40 am #1202696675
As of December, does anyone think Kit Harrington can win if he goes lead again?
I realized it was a possibility after seeing Stephen James snubbed at the critics choice this morning (I understand there is no crossover between the two but still). James being a borderline supporting player does not help his case. The next best bet may be Milo, whose show is probably destined to get dropped next Emmy season.
I know Harrington wasn’t nommed last year, but considering what his storyline could potentially be this year, mixed with him not having to fear vote splitting if he goes lead, mixed with him being Emmy-less, and mixed with the first season/last season pattern, I think he really could have a good shot.
Of course this is all ridiculous speculation considering we haven’t seen a second of the new seasonDecember 10, 2018 at 7:47 am #1202696524
Sucks that Maya Rudolph missed both here and at the Globes, was looking forward to seeing her receive some much-deserved recognition.
On the upside, Julia Garner finally receives a nomination!!December 10, 2018 at 7:15 am #1202696473
Yalitza Aparicio – Roma
Emily Blunt – Mary Poppins Returns
Glenn Close – The Wife
Toni Collette – Hereditary
Olivia Colman – The Favourite
Lady Gaga – A Star Is Born
Melissa McCarthy – Can You Ever Forgive Me?
This clarifies basically nothing at all.December 9, 2018 at 1:52 pm #1202695628
Is Richard E Grant the tentative frontrunner here until televised awards start? He seems to be in better shape than AliDecember 7, 2018 at 11:05 am #1202693339
The TV Globes are more unpredictable than ever. Versace winning Limited Series is probably the only lock. I don’t see another safe category.
The Limited Series race is far from a lock, I think really any of the four besides the Alienist could take itDecember 6, 2018 at 4:03 pm #1202691891
I would be interested to know what the percentages of different voters there are: age, sex, race, sexuality, etc. I know they have changed it but I do think the academy is still older and white; more diverse but not by that much? Knowing this information would make predictions much easier.
Davis is one of the best actresses working today that’s obvious, but I don’t think it’s fair to blame her removal from the award race this year on the academy and other awards groups being racist. Literally every actress contender this year has an insane amount of passion behind them/their movie and Widows simply doesn’t, which is unfortunately what happens when an action movie bombs at the box office.
