Posters have become far too reliant on plastering the face of big stars into then instead of interesting visuals of the old day like Jaws and The Exorcist.

Sir Tony is most likely winning Globe and BAFTA. But I think this race is not over yet. Boseman could still win SAG and Critic’s Choice, giving him momentum going into Oscar. We could see African American actors doing pretty well in SAG awards with Viola Davis in 2011, Denzel and Hidden Figures in 2016, Idris Elba in 2015, and Black Panther in 2018 even though they did not win many other precursors. We will see.
Watch Anthony and Chadwick tie at Critics Choice.

I’ve added Bakalova to my supporting actress predictions. She won’t win, but I genuinely think she has a shot at a nomination. Doubting she’ll go comedy lead, which is a shame because of the empty field, and I don’t see her getting an Oscar nom by a longshot, but I think a Globe nom is in the realm of reality.
If they were smart, they’d put her lead here and supporting elsewhere (not that she’ll get in anywhere else) like what Apple is doing with Murray.

Yeah but I don’t know how many people would vote for him just because he died. We’ve only had two posthumous winners, and they both had undeniable performances that would’ve won anyway.

I wouldn’t say King’s win was due to her performance being deemed unstoppable. The fact that she was snubbed at SAG directly goes against that idea.
Don’t get me wrong, I thought she was fantastic and deserving, but what really helped push her to that win was her competition. Stone and Weisz were both amazing, but they obviously split the vote, Adams had a major overdue narrative, but most people seemed lukewarm on her performance, and de Tavira had a strong performance and the right film, but was too much of an unknown to American audiences. All this, combined with Kong’s status as a respected veteran and the year’s critical favorite pushed her to the win.

The difference with Tom Hanks is that he had significantly less screentime than Matthew Rhys. Kaluuya and Stanfield are reported to have roughly equal prominence.
Not to mention, we were hearing reports that he was supporting long before they made the announcement official. We’ve yet to hear anything reliable on Kaluuya being supporting.

If you’re talking about Kaluuya, there was never confirmation that he was lead in the first place. From the synopsis and the trailer he is more supporting than lead due to the story being seen through Stanfield’s characters perspective. If they end up putting Kaluuya in supporting then he will easily sweep this category.
Well he’s been in lead since the prediction center opened, the advertising is clearly emphasizing his role over Stanfield’s, and unlike Boseman, they’ve yet to make him an option in supporting. Maybe they’ll place him there later, but I think those signs confirm that for there moment, the studio considers him lead.

Maybe if the season wasn’t so truncated last year, Taron would’ve had a better shot of making the cut for Best Actor (as well as fellow Golden Globe winner, Awkwafina in Best Actress for The Farewell).
They definitely would’ve won. It’s crazy to think that Awkwafina might’ve been an even bigger lock for the Globe this year than she was last year.

Could Jo Ellen Pellman be added to the predictions center please? Considering how barren the category is this year, I would not be surprised at all to see her and Streep nominated in lead for THE PROM.
Yeah, and she’s the true main character of the story.

I don’t understand why they kept the whole ‘she’s banned from her prom for being queer’ element of the story out of the trailer. Is it an attempt to make the trailer palatable to homophobes? Because that makes no sense.
Yeah, the trailer really doesn’t give a strong indicator what it’s about because of that. And it’s not like they need to hide it from the audience. I doubt too many homophobes want to watch a campy musical about Meryl Streep and James Corden playing Broadway stars saving a high school prom, so it’s not like they’d have lost potential viewers in showing it.
Anyway, the trailer is alright. Felt like they were really trying to build it up as being something epic, when the strongest aspect of the story isn’t the spectacle, but it’s heart.
