They probably would have gotten away with airing some awards during the commercials if it had been the 3 short categories (I wouldn’t like this personally)… why the hell would you put bloody Editing and Cinematography in the commercial breaks? Mental.
Glad all of the awards will be presented live on the main telecast.February 15, 2019 at 4:37 pm #1202777882
I know these ballots must be taken with a grain of salt, and I don’t expect Grant to win anymore (oof, my heart), but it’s really nice to see all of these voters really appreciate his performance here (and 3 pick him for their vote):February 15, 2019 at 4:32 pm #1202777879
Who in their right mind would turn down any of the three main roles in The Favourite? Wow.February 10, 2019 at 8:48 pm #1202770927
Olivia Colman is my Queen but is there any chance her comment about Rachel and Emma being co-leads will hurt Rachel’s chances at the Oscars?February 10, 2019 at 8:45 pm #1202770898
Is anyone else shattered by Grant’s loss tonight?February 4, 2019 at 8:36 pm #1202761737
It’s like the Academy is actively working to make this Oscars one of the worst in history.February 3, 2019 at 1:33 am #1202759775
At this point, I can see The Favourite getting up to 5 Oscars:
Best Supporting Actress – Weisz. Still a possibility if BAFTA pushes her and she becomes the sole actress in the category with all the crucial nods and a major precursor win.
Best Original Screenplay – BAFTA will push it.
Best Production Design – BAFTA will have to go for it to cement its front-runner status.
Best Costume Design – Again, with the help of BAFTA and the guild. And it’s Sandy Powell. She wins every now and then.
Best Film Editing – Yes, it’s a possibility.
If it takes editing, it’s the best picture shocker.
I hope this entire scenario happens. The Favourite for Best Picture!February 2, 2019 at 12:35 am #1202758738
I hope that Bernie doesn’t run again. I personally believe that we will lose in 2020 if he becomes the nominee. People truly don’t realize how much many Democrats (myself included) loathe him for his 2016 actions. I think he deserves quite a bit of the blame for why Trump was elected. His rhetoric created issues for Hillary that she couldn’t quite shake during the general, and Trump used his rhetoric to nail her on various issues.
Plus, he doesn’t have the support of black voters. His lack of support doomed him in 2016, IMO. There’s no way that he’s going to win that bloc with two top-tier African-American candidates this cycle in Harris and Booker also running. He can deviate from his “identity politics” rhetoric, but I think that a lot of people in my demographic will see through it.
Wow, someone watches way too much mainstream media.February 1, 2019 at 12:43 am #1202757670
Just went back to Part 4 to see what the fuss was about.
Worth it.January 29, 2019 at 7:04 pm #1202754927
What surprises me most about Ali’s sweep so far is the category placement. I would think the industry would be the most concerned with category fraud, more than critics, and yet he gets nominated in supporting everywhere. How is there no industry outrage? There are far more supporting actors working than leading actors.
