Since DaBaby has confirmed he’s a performer now, hopefully that means the Recording Academy will make a statement in the press tomorrow morning with a list announcing the first group of performers.February 23, 2021 at 5:52 pm #1204057752
Still holding on to hope that Delroy Lindo can score a nom. He’s definitely the #1 person I want to see nominated in this category.
Would really love it if Delroy, Steven and Riz all made the line-up!February 23, 2021 at 1:20 am #1204055922
There’s kind of no point in predicting yet when we are waiting for so many high profile releases to drop (Adele, Drake, Beyoncé, Kendrick, etc).
As of now, I think only the following that have been released stand a chance at Grammy noms in 2022:
Arlo ParksFebruary 22, 2021 at 7:51 am #1204054236
Winner: Phoebe Bridgers
Dark horse: Ingrid Andress
Don’t underestimate Ingrid. She’s the only country nominee and while on paper she may look like a one-hit wonder, behind the scenes she is known for her songwriting, including for other artists (Alicia Keys, Charli XCX). She also scored the same amount of nominations (4) as the other leading New Artist nominees: Megan and Phoebe.February 16, 2021 at 3:18 pm #1204045164
Some of y’all really mad at the possibility of Viola Davis winning, huh???February 15, 2021 at 11:49 am #1204043299
So the Grammy Awards telecast is only 4 weeks away and we still don’t even know one single act that is performing yet?
Will they announce this week or next?February 13, 2021 at 9:32 pm #1204041222
Just finished Judas. I would personally nominate it in Best Picture, Supporting Actor (although if I were an Academy member I might be tempted to write Daniel Kaluuya in Lead Actor), Supporting Actress, Screenplay and Original Song.February 11, 2021 at 4:15 pm #1204038098
Taylor Swift is happening this year, so she will not be factor at next year’s Grammys. I predict an overall snub for Evermore and its tracks. It’s too similar to Folklore and no one will be looking to honor her again so soon.
On another note…
Do we think the Grammys will try to save face with The Weeknd by nominating him for “Save Your Tears” next year or naw? Probably not, but it would be funny, especially if it ends up being a #1 hit (it’s projected to hit the Top 5 on the Hot 100 on Monday).February 11, 2021 at 3:49 pm #1204038068
Neither will win Best Director and Aaron Sorkin won’t even be nominated.February 9, 2021 at 10:50 am #1204033157
Can someone remind me… what’s the buzz on Tom Holland in Cherry???
I know people have screeners and noticed he’s doing a lot of press now.
Should I assume Globes, SAG and Critics Choice watched and passed on it or is there some sort of shot at the last minute for a lead actor nom?February 5, 2021 at 9:29 am #1204025029
For me, it would seem like people are the least passionate about Gary Oldman’s performance.
I think he’s more vulnerable than he appears to be. His film is also lacking in passion… it scored 1 SAG nom when it should have scored 3.
Chadwick, Riz, Delroy, Steven and Anthony will all get plenty of #1 votes. Even Mads (if enough voters watch his film).
Voters don’t really have a reason to vote for Gary. He’s not giving the best performance of his career. He already has an Oscar to his name and multiple noms. His film isn’t the frontrunner to win Picture. Do voters love him that much? (I mean they might… I’m genuinely asking).February 4, 2021 at 3:03 pm #1204023303
Paul Raci feels like the type of nominee that Oscar likes to go for. He’s like John Hawkes in Winter’s Bone or Shohreh Aghdashloo in House of Sand & Fog. I think he’ll still score the nomination. Those that check out Riz in Sound of Metal will be left moved by Raci as well.
Jared Leto is just a no. Everyone I talked to disliked his film this past weekend. I think he was simply a filler nom at Globes and SAG and those members were just excited to see his movie early.
I think Raci and Boseman will score the final two spots (assuming Kaluuya, Odom Jr, Cohen are safe).
Bill Murray suffers from being on Apple who hasn’t figured out how to play the Oscar game just yet.January 31, 2021 at 9:06 am #1204010819
The Father has a visibility problem for sure, and that’s why it was completely ignored by a couple of critics groups. But it didn’t receive Best Film nominations in many groups it marked Actor and/or Supporting Actress noms.
I don’t think so. Visibility problem, yes, but not because it hasn’t been available for critics and voters to see… its because they don’t want to see it (due to its subject matter).
The screeners have been out forever, it debuted at Sundance last year and it played at a lot of festivals in the fall so plenty of critics had seen it. As great of a film it might be, it’s just not one that critics feel like championing.
The Academy could feel different… idk.January 31, 2021 at 8:50 am #1204010794
Jerrod Carmichael’s On The Count of Three, anyone? Seems like a Gotham/Spirit contender already! Feel like Neon or a streamer will pick this one up
I enjoyed it for the most part. This dark comedy (that’s how I would define it) is definitely carried by its 2 lead performances. I didn’t care for the ending.
I definitely could see Christopher Abbott in Best Male Lead and Jerrod Carmichael in Best First Film at the Spirits.January 31, 2021 at 8:41 am #1204010782
Wow… This must have awards potential if Apple buys the movie for that amount of money…
I watched it Day 1 of Sundance. It definitely could be a factor. It’s a crowd pleasing movie that will make you laugh and cry. It really sets itself apart with its inclusion of deaf characters. It does suffer slightly from a couple of coming of age cliches, but I didn’t mind. I did love it.
It’s chances at Oscar noms (in my opinion):
Best Supporting Actor – Troy Kotsur
Best Supporting Actress – Marlee Matlin (although not as great as Troy… I’m assuming being a former winner might help her score a nom)
Best Adapted Screenplay
Best Original Song (performed by star Emilia Jones)
