Another ballot, another vote for Queen YounApril 20, 2021 at 4:34 am #1204210953
I just found out that Shaka King directed the Pool episode in Shrill, and that he actually directed multiple episodes for season 1 and season 2!!!
Watch out for him in Comedy Directing if he comes back to direct an episode for Season 3 as well!April 18, 2021 at 10:33 pm #1204208566
I think they might present Youn’s category first just to have Brad Pitt kick start the show.April 16, 2021 at 11:57 am #1204204140
Why are we arguing about who has more passion between Close and Colman when Youn literally has the most passion for her performance? If anyone is running away with the passion vote, it’s Youn.April 15, 2021 at 2:43 pm #1204202825
I cannot make up my mind between Davis and Mulligan and it’s driving me crazy. So I am just going with the Best Picture nominee.
Now watch Day win the Oscar lolApril 11, 2021 at 1:41 pm #1204194082
The overdue narrative is nothing and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a stronger contender.
Okay so at best she is 3rd? I guess what I am trying to say is that with Bakalova losing AACTA, BAFTA and SAG, there is no way I can see her win the Oscar for a performance that already was difficult to win for. At least with Glenn, I can see a chance (albeit an incredibly small one) that she gets votes for being overdue?
I do think both Close and Bakalova are quite interchangeable, and only Colman feels like she can pose a challenge to Youn.April 11, 2021 at 1:28 pm #1204194005
This is an exaggeration.
Why? She lost AACTA to Colman, and she lost SAG and BAFTA to Youn. SAG was the most likely to embrace a populist film like Borat and it did not. She could have won the BAFTA with the support of European voters but she lost here too. She already was climbing an uphill battle given the nature of her performance – improv comedy.
Colman can upset with The Father’s performance at BAFTAS. Close still has the overdue at the Oscars narrative. What does Bakalova have? She is in 4th place for me.April 11, 2021 at 1:19 pm #1204193936
I continue to believe this is Viola vs Carey, which is why the Spirits have suddenly become a lot more important as a precursor than they have ever been before lol.April 11, 2021 at 1:11 pm #1204193859
Did PYW really overperform? Didn’t most people have it winning those two categories?
It’s less to do with how many categories it won, but more to do with which categories it won and what happened in other categories.
For instance, it winning British Film over The Father, when The Father was able to defeat both Nomadland in Adapted Screenplay, and Chadwick in Lead Actor, makes Promising Young Woman’s win in that category a lot more significant than had it been if The Father would have lost Screenply and Chadwick would have still won.April 11, 2021 at 1:04 pm #1204193774
I honestly cannot wait to see Youn’s speech. If she attends in person, it will definitely be a Top 3 moment when she wins.April 11, 2021 at 12:56 pm #1204193665
As much as I love Frances, it’s a bit premature to say she is ahead of either Viola or Carey. With the latter two snubbed, Frances hasn’t really defeated them anywhere yet.
This is still Viola vs Carey. Viola has SAG, which is still huge. But Hopkins being able to defeat Chadwick in Lead Actor, and The Father then losing British Film to Promising Young Woman, makes it likely that were Carey and Davis both nominated here, Carey would have won.April 11, 2021 at 12:51 pm #1204193593
Anthony Hopkins being strong enough to beat Chadwick in Lead Actor, but The Father not being strong enough to beat Promising Young Woman in British Film, is all the evidence I need that Carey would have easily won BAFTA if she were nominated.
I feel more confident about Carey for the Oscars now. I still think Chadwick is winning Lead Actor.
