I choose Laurie Metcalf. I’ve seen her on stage multiple times where she is “home” and in her element and it was transcendental, but her in Lady Bird is something I’ve never really seen from her before. She really made you feel for a character that easily could be unlikeable, and I also thought her performance was really relatable- as someone who…[Read more]

Do we know how many other shows in history have swept all 7 major categories? So happy for Schitts!

1. Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird
2. Rachel Weisz, The Favourite
3. Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea
4. Naomie Harris, Moonlight
5. Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine
I truthfully don’t see Hudson winning her 2nd Oscar out of 2 nominations for playing a role that doesn’t seem very much a stretch for her, ie her heavily relying on her vocal chops again. She’s an amazing vocalist but I don’t think her Oscar win has aged super well, at least among pundits, and maybe this is too niche but I do feel like her missing…[Read more]

I’ve rewatched Lady Bird twice since this Oscar season and I completely agree. It’s the definition of what a supporting role and performance should be. Definitely one of my all time favorites.

While I’m excited for this movie, I can’t help but be bothered by Winslet’s timely apology. It comes across as disingenuous. And I love Ronan but I agree she shouldn’t win until she is undeniable and I’ll be surprised if this movie is that vehicle for her.
DrewN92 replied to the topic Re-do : Which Recent Emmy Winning Actress is the Most Likely to Win S. Actress? in the forum Movies 3 weeks ago
From this poll I would say Elisabeth Moss. Not included in this is Michelle Williams (likely because she doesn’t have a confirmed upcoming movie putting her in serious contention), but I think her clean sweep for Fosse/Verdon and her “overdue narrative” will put her in serious conversations next time she has the right role.
DrewN92 replied to the topic Who Would You Vote For To Win Drama S. Actress 2020? in the forum Television 2 months, 2 weeks ago
I would personally vote Dern. She stole every scene she was in- from over the top hilarious moments to her quiet moment with Amabella. But I’d also love Bonham Carter to (deservedly) win.
Really disappointed at Unorthodox’s shut out at TCA. I think Haas is just as deserving as most of the locks in this category, but I am going with Dever and Witherspoon to round out my 5 (assuming Blanchett, King, and Wever are locks). I think Unbelievable will have a strong showing and while I originally thought Dever could miss, her TCA…[Read more]
I vividly remember watching Lapotaire’s episode and googling immediately after who she was, what she has been in, etc. and thinking she was a shoo-in for a guest nomination. I would really love for her to win.
While Haas carries the show without a doubt, the only other person I would nominate would be Rahav. I know it’s easy to get carried away with Twitter world vs reality, but Twitter seemed to really fall for Rahav so maybe not on GD, but there does seem to be a consensus somewhere that he was amazing. I think he could easily be one of those surprise…[Read more]
I think it will go virtual. As hopeful as we are all trying to be right now, cases are spiking in 21+ states that reopened a few weeks ago and experts are already predicting a second shutdown that could be worse than the first. Whether this happens or not I don’t see there being anything other than either a virtual ceremony or simply an announcing…[Read more]
DrewN92 replied to the topic Who will be snubbed: Kerry Washington or Reese Witherspoon? in the forum Television 3 months, 2 weeks ago
While Washington would be the one I would personally choose to miss out here, for some reason I think Dever might be the most vulnerable.I don’t think Washington was bad, but Blanchett, Wever, King, Dever, Witherspoon, and Haas were on another level for me. I felt Washington was overacting to the point of it being distracting at times. I wouldn’t…[Read more]
This was probably my favorite episode of the season so far and Paulson is deserving of the win in my opinion. She was fine all season with minimal to work with but this episode was just really great material for her.
I think Byrne has been good and I wouldn’t disagree with a nomination I just don’t really think she has done anything win w…[Read more]

Completely agreed. For whatever reason I wasn’t drawn to it from the trailer, but my boyfriend convinced me I would like it and when I finally gave it a chance, I was hooked immediately within the first few minutes of the first episode. And I agree that it’s an easy binge and easy commitment given that it’s only 4 episodes.
