If there has to be a feel good factor involved for the BP line up, News of the World seems a lot more fitting (and personally preferable) than Hillbilly Elegy, to me. It has the bonus of not being a Netflix movie, and Greengrass as a more consistent track record with the Academy than Howard.
He has?October 22, 2020 at 9:31 am #1203796349
With all seriousness whilst I think The Prom has had its chances dramatically improved after the release of that trailer I do think both Comedy/Musical film and Comedy/Musical actress are between it and Promising Young Woman. The Globes tend to go for the film or performance in these categories that are the most likely to land at the Oscars (see them going for Amy Adams for Big Eyes in 2015 in a weak field). It just depends on what happens when both films are released. The Globes love Ryan Murphy and Netflix but they also love Focus Features a lot too (see them nominating Charlize Theron and Lucas Hedges) and they also love Killing Eve and The Crown which helps Promising Young Woman considering it’s written and directed by one of the executive producers of Killing Eve and an actor from The Crown. What’s kind of funny is how both these films are being released at the same time so it really is a head to head battle. Let the fight commence!

Actually have you really seen Da5B? I was more impressed with Boseman there than with any of the “Chicago” boys. In fact, his speeches were much more thrilling to hear than any of the Sorkin ones. Maybe he’ll still win for a truely supporting performance, not a category fraud. I expect him to rise at the predictions center for Da5B.
The others give way better performances than Boseman in Da 5Bloods. No offense. I hope Cohen sweeps this category.October 17, 2020 at 11:32 pm #1203785455
Rylance was my favorite, but Yahya was phenomenal in what little screen time he had. He did incredibly well with the material, and was miles ahead of any other cast member (other than Rylance). I also didn’t think Langella’s role was nearly as vile or hateful as many people are claiming… I mean, yeah, the judge was supposed to be one of the old guard, unfair, bad at his job types (with some possible mental deficiencies), but I didn’t see him as “evil”? Just completely misunderstanding his purview, position, and limits.
Did you watch the movie? Yahya was given too litte material to do anything worth praising.October 16, 2020 at 10:24 am #1203782484

Promising Young Woman feels like a film that will be completely inaccessible to most Oscar voters, and outright rejected by others. I’m sure a small portion of voters will enjoy it, but it’s just not the type of film that a majority of the voterbase would enjoy. Right now I think the ceiling is Best Actress and Original Screenplay only. And even those categories seem unlikely.
Would you say the same if the movie starred Blanchett instead?October 13, 2020 at 11:08 pm #1203777018
END OF WEEK 5 PREDICTIONS Best Actress
- Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
- Frances McDormand (Nomadland)
- Kate Winslet (Ammonite)
- Amy Adams (Hillbilly Elegy)
- Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman)
How is Winslet still that high up? For basically being Winslet? Muligan has better reviews in a movie way more interesting than Ammonite and Hudson’s role is BAITY. I hope Winslet misses out.October 12, 2020 at 7:08 am #1203772692
One thing I’ve re-noticed while looking at previous results is that there’s almost always a nominee in this category from a small film that only got 1 or zero other nominations. So whoever that person is this year is probably going to take Tom Hanks’ spot. My best guess is that it’s Riz Ahmad or Tom Holland.
Ahmed and Holland have no chance of being nominated.October 12, 2020 at 7:00 am #1203772676
Remember when Blanchett got a Golden Globe nomination for Where’d You Go Bernadette for simply for being Blanchett? That was funny.October 11, 2020 at 11:48 am #1203771599
Mank being a juggernaut has nothing to do with Oldman’s chances. The last time a Lead Actor won the Oscar because he was propelled by the success of the movie was… when? McDormand has by all accounts delivered a career best performance and won her last 2 Oscars for quality not any narrative. Gary coasted to a win for the Blahrkest Hour because he didn’t already have one, that’s all. The 2 are completely different.
Mank being a huge favourite for multiple Oscars doesn’t effect Oldman’s chances to win? He’s the main reason besides Fincher for it being a juggernaut. Your opinion on Darkest Hour clearly shows bias against him. The last time a lead actor won because he was propelled by the success by the movie? DiCaprio in The Revenant maybe? Oldman coasted the same way McDormand coasted so its not different. And his oscar for Darkest Hour was well deserved. I think he will get career best raves for Mank and that’s why I think he will win again.
