This could be the year for people of color in this category. I’m so excited. So many contenders.January 23, 2021 at 11:14 pm #1203998413
White people are the reason that dark skin black women don’t get more roles not Zendaya. It seems that you are more angry at Zendaya’s advantage than fully white actresses advantages and I find that bizarre.
I don’t care about fully white actresses. I said Zendaya is overrated and is being forced to be this phenomenal actress, which she isn’t. It has nothing to do with her advantages vs. white actresses. That’s quite irrelevant to my opinion of Zendaya.January 23, 2021 at 11:05 pm #1203998396
The idea that Zendaya is being shoved down people’s throats more than young white actresses is a hilarious lie. Some on this forum can’t even let ONE biracial/black actress get any love without crying about it.
I’m a black man, and I absolutely believe Zendaya is overrated and being shoved down people’s throats. And notating that she is “biracial” as if she has had it just as hard or harder than actual talented black actresses in this industry is the hilarious thought. If anything, her mixed heritage has given her better opportunities than actual black actresses, but I’ll save that discussion for another thread.January 23, 2021 at 12:59 pm #1203997806
Hopefully, these reviews destroy Zendaya’s chances at taking up an undeserved slot on Best Actress.January 23, 2021 at 12:54 pm #1203997797
I think Jennifer’s rise to fame, AI story and song performance are what put her ahead of the rest. No one else had a narrative or stood out to take that Oscar away from her, even if they were technically better.January 23, 2021 at 12:47 pm #1203997789
The constant shoving of Zendaya down the throats of the general public is so lame and forced. She’s not even top 10 of the best actresses in her age group.January 22, 2021 at 3:06 pm #1203996740
Saturday Night Live just announced their new episodes. The February 6th episode will feature BNA nominee Phoebe Bridgers as the musical guest. What do you think of her chances in March?
The voting period is over, but she could win if Megan and Doja somehow split.January 20, 2021 at 9:13 pm #1203993965
Gaga was fantasic, but J. Lo? Straight trash. Why do they allow her to perform these songs outside of her range anyway?January 19, 2021 at 12:06 pm #1203991738
Kendrick Lamar deserved AOTY for To Pimp a Butterfly and DAMN. DAMN. didn’t have to be his best album to be deserving of a win. I’m sure y’all don’t have that same energy for Taylor and her multiple AOTY wins. If you think Melodrama deserved AOTY, then cool. But using “DAMN. isn’t his best album” as a reason for a loss is weird to me.January 19, 2021 at 11:55 am #1203991706
Jazmine is getting awesome gigs. That’s huge for her.
I’m not sure how I feel about her doing the National Anthem with Eric Church. She should do it alone, unless Church is on guitar or something.January 18, 2021 at 8:51 am #1203989491
Positions will probably get Ariana her usual pop nominations, but with a bunch of notable releases and curveballs coming, I wouldn’t necessarily bet a whole lot of love in the general field. It’s nice to try to use the Coldplay comparison, but they were curveballs that no one really predicted. Ariana wouldn’t be that.January 17, 2021 at 3:24 pm #1203988521
Halsey never being nominated for solo work and Paramore only ever getting a single Rock Song nomination (which they won) are pretty egregious if you ask me. Ariana Grande, Fiona Apple, Janelle Monáe, Lana Del Rey, and Miley Cyrus have all deserved more nominations and/or wins.
Paramore was nominated for BNA and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group for “The Only Exception.”January 16, 2021 at 5:33 pm #1203987145
Robert Glasper winning for Black Radio in Best R&B Album was quite the surprise for some of us posters.
It seems when a surprise first time win happens, it leads to a bunch of other wins later on. Think Robert Glasper, Lalah Hathaway, Esperanza Spalding, Anderson.Paak, etc.
