While the number of nominations is a different matter, in terms of wins and losses, I agree with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar record.January 19, 2021 at 10:07 am #1203991412
– The Babel ladies were foreign actresses and cancelled each other, though Kikuchi was more acclaimed – Abigail Breslin was 11 years old – Cate Blanchett won the previous year Meanwhile Hudson won for a role that had previously already won a Tony and a Grammy Award. She had one huge show-stopping moment and frankly, she was the only way to give a major award to Dreamgirls
Also she was a lead in supporting.
I disagree that she was the only way to give Dreamgirls a major award as Murphy was considered the frontrunner to win for it as well, though outside factors didn’t help him.January 18, 2021 at 10:42 am #1203989906
Yes, I could imagine What We Do in the Shadows doing better than we think. It definitely gained an increase in viewership and all five principle actors have definite passion going for them.
Right now I have Berry, as he’s the biggest name and appears to be the fan favorite.January 18, 2021 at 10:23 am #1203989843
Very happy for Better Call Saul and The Crown doing well.
I’m also ecstatic for What We Do in the Shadows doing so well with actors. It’s a shame about Novak, but it’s understandable. Lead nods are harder, especially when you have internal competition from the show’s most popular actor.January 18, 2021 at 10:18 am #1203989818
Completely agree. The movie is literally called Pieces of a Woman and yet it spends a huge amount of time focusing on Shia. Like…why?!
I understand why they did it. After all, the tragedy befalls his character too.
What I don’t understand is why they decided to make his character become such a one note douche and then after having him as Kirby’s co-lead for the whole film, just remove him from the third act.January 18, 2021 at 9:31 am #1203989644
I still think Vanessa is the most vulnerable of the top4. Her movie is not very good outside the performances and she’s not the main focus for a good amount of the movie.
It is a shame that the film spends so much time on the Shia character when he just winds up becoming a nonentity by the end.
It’s also worth noting, once it started just focusing on her, I found the movie to be way, way better.January 18, 2021 at 8:15 am #1203989446
Actually the Globes have awarded a woman for directing before. Barbara Streisand won for Yentl but was snubbed at the Oscars.January 17, 2021 at 4:15 pm #1203988610
I think that after these first two episodes of WandaVision we can move it up in our predictions. I think that for limited series it comes in, it’s a great tribute to television. Elizabeth Olsen and kathryn hahn have a good chance of entering. Bettany still don’t know
I’d switch Bettany and Hahn. The two leads have both been getting lots of good and pretty much equal attention, definitely much more so than Hahn.January 16, 2021 at 6:39 pm #1203987322
Nevertheless a boring white savior movie about a sports teacher putting marginalized kids in the right path It’s Sandra Bullock all over again.
The Blind Side was a far more popular movie, Bullock is far more popular as an actor, and she benefited from a much weaker field.January 15, 2021 at 8:36 pm #1203985911
I love this.January 13, 2021 at 5:28 am #1203981157
In all honesty, Raci’s final, heartfelt moment is probably my favorite scene of the entire season so far.
I still have more competition to see, but to me he’s absolutely worthy of a straight up win, even though they’d never give it to him.January 12, 2021 at 9:03 pm #1203980694
Bohemian Rhapsody winning editing.January 12, 2021 at 3:08 pm #1203980291
I was going to say that what gets in the way of Bakalova is because she would be the only nomination for the film, Kathy Bates was the solo nominee for RJ but she is KATHY BATES.
To be fair, while I don’t think they’ll nominate her, Borat 2 is looking like it’ll be in a good spot for screenplay and song nominations.January 12, 2021 at 9:12 am #1203979512
Even if Kidman does hit it out of the park, isn’t it pretty unlikely that the film would compete for Oscars in 2022? Seems that the production is at a very early stage.
Maybe, but considering how long ago they announced it, I’m guessing the script is completely done and they can move onto all the other production aspects quickly.
