This is such a refreshingly different role for Octavia. I feel like that alone will get people on board for a nomination. If the film gets critical acclaim and makes money, I think she is in for Best Actress. They as it is love her.February 14, 2019 at 10:47 pm #1202776975
If Roma takes WGA, I honestly don’t see how it loses Best Picture.February 14, 2019 at 5:59 am #1202775821
Supporting Actress: Helena Bonham Carter, Julia Garner, Lena Headey, Rhea Seehorn, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams
As great as she is, and as deserving as this will be, I don’t see how they suddenly nominate her after snubbing her (and Michael Mckean!) before. I know there are more open slots, but I feel like they will just nominate someone else.
It’s still so annoying that Samira Wiley won over Diana Rigg for playing the exact same character she played in Orange is the New Black.
Well, she should have won for playing Poussey Washington anyway (especially for that finale in Season 4), so I don’t understand the criticism.

An amazing observation that the four categories not being presented live have ZERO nominations for ABC. I’m convinced the Sound Categories are being presented live, along with Costume Design and Production Design, because of Black Panther.
This has ABC’s dirty hands all over it. They are a disgrace, these producers are a disgrace, and the Academy President has no spine. These are the worst Oscars in the history of Oscars and all of us NEED to boycott them.February 11, 2019 at 1:36 am #1202771674
I am so upset that Grant is going to be losing to Ali. Ali is great in Green Book, but he already has an Oscar for an overrated performance. Grant should be winning this, but with the Bafta loss, I just don’t see how that happens now.February 10, 2019 at 11:11 pm #1202771540
So I have Roma winning BP, Curon taking Director, Malek winning Actor, Favourite and BlacKKKlansman taking screenplay awards, so that’s 5/8 matching for me. Ali is also most likely winning again, despite having just won two years ago. If Grant couldn’t even win at Bafta, I don’t see how he takes the Oscar. So that’s going to be 6/8.
Regina King and Glen Close will take their categories at the Oscars.February 7, 2019 at 11:53 pm #1202764907
Can someone please fire these producers? They are literally making an absolute travesty of the Oscars. These might be the worst Oscars we’ve ever had, and that’s saying something.
Why can’t Janney, Rockwell, Oldman and McDormand just present the damn acting categories? It is so insulting to say that these Oscar winning actors aren’t cool or hip enough to present such important categories.
Also since when does ANYONE tune in to the Oscars to watch Chris Evans present Best Supporting Actress? It’s so fucked up.February 6, 2019 at 12:10 am #1202762841
do not have The Favourite winning because BAFTA does not shift momentum like that and they even keep taking measures to line up more with the Oscars. Their recent winners have been Three Billboards (SAG, AACTA, Globe), La La Land (PGA, SAG, AACTA, Globe, Critics), The Revenant (DGA, Globe), Boyhood (Globe, Critics),
I just find it hilarious that despite trying to line up with the Oscars, they missed calling the Best Picture winner for the last four years.February 6, 2019 at 12:04 am #1202762836
The beach scene in Roma is probably the most stunningly shot scene I’ve seen in the last decade.
The pool scene in Eight Grade. Elsie earned an Oscar nomination with that scene.
“You look like a badger” – The Favourite
Tish announces her pregnancy – Baele StreetFebruary 5, 2019 at 2:44 am #1202761913
Okay so now they are not letting last year’s winners present?
That’s it. I can’t watch this ceremony this year. This will be the first time I’ll be missing the Oscars since I started watching them, but I have to do it. This ceremony deserves to be a massive flop and these producers need to be fired and never hired again. What an absolute colossal mockery they have made of the Oscars.January 28, 2019 at 2:57 am #1202752386
And he deserves his second Oscar. A hard-working, black actor getting great roles and delivering amazing awards worthy performances.
What is so wrong with that??
Had this been Timothy Chalamet it Richard E Grant, this conversation would have been totally different.
You don’t like the movie, or the actor. But don’t diminish or trivialize his work or his achievements
I’m sorry but I didn’t find anything award-worthy about his performance in Moonlight, and if I don’t like his performance in that film or don’t think he deserved that Oscar, that doesn’t mean I am trivializing his achievements.
I actually really liked him in Green Book, and if he hadn’t won an undeserving Oscar in 2017, he’d be my personal winner for this year. Although Richard E Grant is also really amazing and would make an equally worthy winner.
All I was saying that, regardless of how people may view his performance in Moonlight, I’m not so sure if he’s going to win a second Oscar so quickly in a span of two years. It has nothing to do with his race, because it’s the same logic that is making me predict King over Weisz and Malek over Bale.
So yeah, try not to be so hyper-sensitive and pull out the race card all the time.January 28, 2019 at 1:54 am #1202752350
I think Streep is definitely winning one more in her lifetime, and it’s more likely to be in lead than supporting.
McDormand is interesting because, honestly, if she gets the right role in the right film, and if she aces it, I can see her being undeniable, like DDL in Lincoln.
Besides these two, I don’t see anyone else pulling this off, although I won’t put it past Blanchett, Lawrence (especially after she came so close to winning back to back in 2013), and Kidman to win 2 more Oscars in the lead category in their lifetimes.January 28, 2019 at 1:48 am #1202752347
And to think people thought Close had no chance and that this was between Gaga and Coleman before the Globes lol.
This is now the biggest lock, or probably the only lock, of the four acting categories.January 28, 2019 at 1:46 am #1202752343
I know Ali has won all of the precursors, and he probably is winning his second Oscar, but I am just not able to wrap my head around the fact that they will be giving him a SECOND Oscar so soon. He literally just won his first Oscar two years ago, and that wasn’t a win that everyone was on board for.
So for him to win a second Oscar so soon, even though there are many who don’t necessarily think he deserved his first Oscar, is something I am not able to wrap my head around.
Maybe this is just foolish thinking, but I still think he might lose to Richard E Grant, especially if the latter wins Bafta.January 28, 2019 at 12:34 am #1202752285
Globe – King
Critics Choice – King
Major Critics Awards (LA,NY) – King
AACTA – Kidman (snubbed at Oscars and didn’t defeat King)
SAG – Blunt (snubbed at Oscars and didn’t defeat King)
Bafta – Won’t be the Globe, SAG, AACTA or Critics Choice winner
Oscars – I honestly think it looks like King is winning this easily.
