The SAG ensemble nod, now the editing win. Can Parasite actually win Best Picture?January 9, 2020 at 10:54 pm #1203273298
I’m so not surprised.
It’ll be hilarious and so typical if they get all white actors for this adaptation, and then those white actors end up winning Emmys/Globes, while the original Asian cast doesn’t even get nominated for the Globes/Oscars.January 8, 2020 at 12:42 am #1203270084
After Marina De Tavira last year, I am not taking out either Song Kang Ho or Antonia Banderas. There is just too much passion for these performances for either of them to miss out on the Oscar voting system.
Also, considering the backlash the Baftas are getting, the Oscars will probably want some POC to be nominated, so I feel like that only has to help Song Kang Ho, Jennifer Lopez, and Lupita.January 7, 2020 at 1:15 am #1203267686
This is no longer a fluke situation. Time and again Bafta has continued to show disdain for POC in these categories. I mean the fact that they have never nominated Denzel is baffling.January 6, 2020 at 11:59 pm #1203267402
Not a SINGLE POC nominated in any of the four acting categories?
They couldn’t have nominated even ONE of the following – Lopez, Banderas, Lupita, Cynthia, Awkafina, Murphy, Zhao Shuzhen, or any of the Parasite actors?January 5, 2020 at 11:04 pm #1203265401
Yeah the same happened with me. So much for being a top 24 user lol, none of my risky predictions paid off, even though I thought The Morning Show and Aniston were actually safe predictions and not risky. I guess I shouldn’t have predicted Porter, but he just seemed like someone they would want on the stage. With JLo losing, that’s another lesson I’ve learned.
You are right about Arquette, in hindsight that is such an obvious win, although we were right about someone from a limited series taking this.
I think, with Skarsgard also winning, one thing is very clear now – the Globes love rewarding Limited Series in supporting categories.
The only prediction I am mad about is Ben Platt, because I had Ramy for the lONGEST time and switched out to Platt in the last minute.
Also can we stop looking for a corresponding Series nod? With Arquette and especially Ramy Yousef, I think we can let go of that as well.January 5, 2020 at 2:06 am #1203260800
And Lucas Hedges was 20, but they were both playing teenagers.
And Saoirse Ronan is just a year older and also playing a teenager in the same film but got the nomination.
I agree with your assessment, but with her AACTA win and Globe nod, it seems like the passion pick for Little Woman will end up being Ronan and not Pugh as we were expecting. And supporting is a more competitive category than lead IMO, so it’s likely that Ronan makes it but Pugh misses out.January 4, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203260017
The Florence Pugh SAG snub is not weird. Passion does not get you a nomination at SAG; visibility does. We now know that Saoirse Ronan has industry passion and she missed too. As for the Globe, they did not really care for Little Women, but even for films that they love, they are prone to snub breakthrough performances by “kids” in the supporting categories: Lucas Hedges in Manchester by the Sea, Jacob Tremblay in Room, Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit, Dev Patel in Slumdog Millionaire.
I mean she is 24, don’t know if she exactly fits the ‘kids’ stat, but I agree with the rest.December 28, 2019 at 9:05 pm #1203252962
Finally saw this and my god, it’s my FAVOURITE show of the year. Merrit Weaver was STUNNING and is my frontrunner for the Emmy, although Dever will split votes.
Toni Collette was great too, and I’m surprised more people aren’t predicting her to take the Globe!December 22, 2019 at 6:18 am #1203246849
Nicole KidmanDecember 11, 2019 at 8:33 pm #1203232878
Let’s not forget, Kathy Bates wasn’t actually snubbed by SAG. She was accidentally competing in lead, had she been in supporting, she probably would have gotten in.
I don’t know what to do with Kidman. She has SAG and AACTA nominations, but will she get enough number 1 votes to get that Oscar nod?
