She won the NBR for A Most Violent Year and didn’t even end up with a nomination. What’s your point?ReplyMarch 26, 2022 at 3:48 pm #1204877689
What was the ballot situation in the Colman-Glenn Close year? How did the other nominees fare?ReplyFebruary 8, 2022 at 5:47 am #1204785952
There was a user who had Regina King’s picture in display (their profile was probably called ReginaIsKing). They had completely dismissed me when I predicted Jessica Chastain. I wanna know how sis is holding up.

Before someone comes at me, just want to clarify that I’ve seen Spencer and Stewart looks like an obvious frontrunner at this point. But I feel like the Globes are always random when it comes to picking a winner. Like Andra Day last year. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Chastain ends up winning the Globe. They nominated her for Scenes From a Marriage too even though that performance was losing momentum after the CC snub. They clearly like her and like picking a random fav every once in a whileDecember 14, 2021 at 9:25 pm #1204656912

Imagine, if after all the K-Stew and Gaga stans who wrote “SHE IS COMINGG”, Olivia Colman ends up winning.

I brought up Sidney Flanigan to understand how much momentum indie films have. And how much their actresses are in-conversation. No one was comparing Zegler with Flanigan. You guys need to calm down.December 2, 2021 at 2:57 pm #1204621217
I am curious about whether Sidney Flanigan was considered a possibility for a nomination last year? Just want to know how much momentum lead actresses in indie films have. Because “Never Rarely Sometimes Always” has a very impressive RT and Meta score and was the most nominated film at Spirit Awards, and it was still snubbed at the OscarsNovember 20, 2021 at 2:46 pm #1204591138
Things going on for Jessica Chastain:
•Desert Palm Springs Award. Most of the past recipients have gone on to win/get nominated for an Oscar.
•A highly possible GG, Critics Choice and (maybe) SAG nom?
•The most transformative performance amongst all the transformative performances this year.
•Searchlight looks like they’ll prioritise her for Best Actress campaign. I just don’t see Blanchett happening for some reason
•Make up nomination very likely. The film may not be forgotten completely. (read Iron Lady)
I know September was an early release and the film underperformed at the box office. But almost everyone is calling it her career best. I don’t think Chastain should be written off just yetOctober 6, 2021 at 4:10 pm #1204506177
Haven’t seen The Eyes of Tammy Faye but I had my reservations the moment Showalter was attached to direct. I feel the script and story were still in place, but it needed a far more nuanced treatment. I see all the I, Tonya comparisons too but I really feel an approach like “Can You Ever Forgive Me”, where they humanize a polarizing protagonist and show them beyond their internet descriptions and public perceptions could have gone a longggg way. Fuck even Florence Foster Jenkins managed to do that. Too bad that an explosive, extraordinary central performance was let down by bad direction and script.September 1, 2021 at 12:11 pm #1204428853
Anyone remembers if Marion Cotillard was considered a frontrunner/strong bet the moment “Two Days, One Night” reviews were out? Just trying to get some perspective on foreign language performances.August 30, 2021 at 9:19 pm #1204425865

I am a massive Jessica Chastain fan but I feel her film has to REALLLYYYY knock it out of the park to lock a win. Which seems difficult. It’s just not a big enough film. Even if she performs better than Kristen (which she can), Kristen just has a lot going on for her (Big director + Historical figure + transformation + popular actress + bigger film + undeniable buzz).
I feel Gaga and Hudson will miss. HOC is already losing buzz and Respect’s reception has been under average, to say the least. Don’t see McDormand happening either.
Colman, Comer and Cruz are strong bets. And Blanchett could EASILY be a late explosive entry given the buzz around her film.
Right now, it looks like this to me
