Currently, I have Driver, Grant, and Ali as locks. I am not so sure about Chalamet TBH. I need to see him hit SAG to be more confident about his chances, and even then I’ll not put it above the Academy to snub him (his film his zero support, he is really young and he’s not an established Academy magnet like Streep or Octavia Spencer yet).
The Elliot snub is troubling. I was sure that he would easily get in at the Globes – maybe even win – so I’m honestly not so sure about his chances, especially since many people say he has very little screen time.
Rockwell getting the Globe nod is really surprising since I had heard he had very little to do in Vice. And then there is Hoult, who is severely being underestimated. I know he missed at the Globes, but I can see the Actor’s branch just fully embrace the Favourite.

IF Hoult manages to get in at SAG, he is totally getting in at the OscarsDecember 6, 2018 at 10:59 pm #1202692167
I think this is terrible. Kevin Hart was telling JOKES. This is the dark side of political correctness. He wasn’t even saying some serious “damn all the gays and transgender people.” This isn’t some freaking “hate speech,” this was some guy shooting the shit. He says he’s evolved since then, the way I look at it we’ve all got skeletons in our closet. I won’t miss what could have been his Oscar hosting, I think there are way better choices to be made (Michelle Wolf, Ali Wong, Bill Burr, Jim freaking Gaffigan!), but I completely disagree with this kind of thought policing authoritarian bullshit. Internet trolls won today, that’s all, which is unfortunate but it is the world we live in. I would not have said the type of shit Hart said (his use of a trans-slur was particularly cringe-worthy) but I don’t think this merits his firing as Oscar host due to the context of what he actually said. Kevin Hart isn’t Ted Cruz or Ben Shapiro and frikkin’ Milo. Shit, he isn’t even Louis C.K. or recent Oscar nominee (non-comedian) Mel Gibson! he doesn’t seem at all like a hateful individual. People can change and people are complicated. Are we never gonna let Dave Chappelle host the Oscars because some of his jokes have been considered “problematic” by the transgender community. Even I don’t agree with some of Chappelle’s transgender-related thoughts, but that’s one of the reasons why America is so great and special is that right to freedom of expression. I understand that doesn’t mean freedom from the potential social consequences of that expression, but I just don’t think for a second Hart’s consequences were what he deserved. That’s just my opinion.
Okay I usually agree with you, but here you are completely in the wrong.
Kevin Hart’s comments were fucking homophobic and it’s really not okay for you to give him a pass.
I mean in what world does saying shit like “If my son were to play with his sister’s dollhouse I would break it on his head” not constitute being homophobic and dangerous? Throwing around the word “fag” to crack jokes is really not funny.
I honestly don’t understand why straight guys aren’t ever able to understand that.December 6, 2018 at 10:52 pm #1202692165
Wait, they are still going ahead with that offensive idea of not live telecasting some of the “less important” categories? Even after the Emmys had their best moment in YEARS during the presentation of a category called Variety Series Directing?
I love these awards, but I am definitely not going to be watching them if they go ahead with these plans of not presenting all the categories live.December 6, 2018 at 6:40 am #1202691110
King also got in for Seven Seconds and Baele Street got all the key nominations.
I still think she wins the Globe and they reward Adams for Sharp Objects.December 6, 2018 at 6:37 am #1202691100
I still think Aparicio can get in at the Oscars even if she misses the rest of the precursors and just hits Critics Choice, especially if Roma overperformed everywhere..
I also think we should not rule her out from SAG. Netflix itself can get her that nomination.

How does Danson miss out win Good Place gets Comedy Series and Bell?
I guess the Bergen and Messing nominations indicate Bell was lucky to be in a weak category.December 6, 2018 at 5:21 am #1202690767
Lead actress in a comedy was such a mess lol. Guess Rachel is coasting to her second win?December 6, 2018 at 5:19 am #1202690755
Genuinely surprised how predictable supporting actress was. This might be the first time most of us got like 5/5 right in this category?November 27, 2018 at 10:11 am #1202683275
King, Stone, Weisz, Debicki, PortmanOctober 24, 2018 at 12:12 am #1202660522
I really believe that we should add The Haunting Of Hill House to SAG Ensemble predix. Given SAG’s history of being so receptive to Netflix shows, I don’t see how it misses out of an Ensemble nod.October 4, 2018 at 2:03 pm #1202646385
Finally the cross-over is in full effect and I’m LIVING for it.September 30, 2018 at 12:18 am #1202643519
The cold Open was hilarious – Matt Damon, Rachel Dratch and Aidy Bryant were perfectly casted and did a great job.
Didn’t like McKinnon as Graham since it was basically a gimmick and she just didn’t do a good impersonation.
I also hate how good Cicely Strong is but still doesn’t get that Emmy nomination she should have gotten by now.
Good Weekend Update, but maybe it’s coloured by how much I hated them at the Emmys so anything by comparison would look good?
Oh and Adam Driver for Comedy Guest Actor please – if he gets that Oscar nomination I’m easily predicting him.September 24, 2018 at 10:23 pm #1202640854
Yeah Regina King was stunning in Seven Seconds and most deserving of the category, right next to Dockery. So the win was completely earned and justified.September 20, 2018 at 3:22 am #1202637776
Did you really like it? I’ve been hesitating to see the pilot of that show due to the mixed reception it got. The premiere is on YouTube, but why do you think he will be such a big Emmy contender? I love Jim Carrey by the way and think he got robbed of an Oscar for The Truman Show.
The show in itself isn’t all that great, but Carrey really is amazing. We’ve never seen him like this so in a way it’s a transformative performance as well. He’s a lock to win the Globe and I think he is getting nominated for SAG (not sure about him winning SAG though).
So while I’m not so sure about how the show will do at the Emmys, I am confident in his chances of winning.
I would also keep an eye out on Keener for supporting actress, depending on what she does during the rest of the season.
