I would be interested to know what people are predicting for Ensemble and most importantly why they are predicting it? I have little confidence in my prediction, BlacKkKlansman, and am predicting it based on the past few years going to mixed race casts but they are usually also mixed gender and that’s where the movie doesn’t fit the criteria. I keep thinking A Star is Born is going to win but it doesn’t have that great an ensemble and is essentially a two-hander. However, it has 3 acting nominations. This seems the most logical choice but I can’t quite bring myself to predict it… Black Panther has a great cast, mixed gender but not mixed race, but it’s achilles heel is that it has no acting nominations in individual categories. Bohemian Rhapsody – I love the movie and everyone is competent but this for me is a one-man show. Crazy Rich Asians is the one I would vote for but it has the same problem as Black Panther – no individual acting nominations.
I wouldn’t be surprised if BR won because I’ve heard SAG members love it. I’m predicting Black Panther because almost everyone else is doing it but I’m not convinced since it’s taking Stunt. Blackkklansman is definitely the one I would vote for. Anyway I think it’s between these three.January 10, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1202729176
I see Bale has a lot of support too. Loved him in American Psycho, Equilibrium and The Fighter. Still have to see Vice.January 9, 2019 at 10:33 am #1202727668
Do you think ASIB and Black Panther can win Ensemble at SAG after the GG and BAFTA fiasco?January 9, 2019 at 7:50 am #1202727412
^Denzel Washington has never been nominated at BAFTA. While they are doing a bit better they only do so when it’s an inevitable Oscar front-runner – they will nominate Lee’s film, for example, but don’t expect it to win. I am predicting Roma and not The Favourite will win Best Film; The FAvourite will win Best British Film.
I agree.January 9, 2019 at 7:48 am #1202727408
Yes, but he was fired with only 2 weeks left in production. So the movie is mostly his.
It’s not his movie. There were hundreds of people who worked on this film and they shouldn’t be punished because of the actions of ONE terrible person. This is a mess.January 9, 2019 at 2:54 am #1202727086
BAFTA usually goes for that top five for Best Film so BR not getting in is not a big surprise.January 9, 2019 at 1:43 am #1202727027
Bohemian Rhapsody overall may seem to have been getting stronger backlash, but I don’t think it’ll affect Malek. People like him a LOT (myself included), even if they have issues with the film. However, if the hate for the movie gets too strong, even he won’t be able to rise above it.
