Kidman isn’t getting nominated with such a minor role. Kidmaniacs do this every year and she comes up short every time.October 13, 2019 at 11:43 pm #1203135347
Lithgow is marvelously vile. Ewww. His Roger is soooo creepy and disgusting. The prosthetic makeup transformation turns him into a monster. So it’s a big (and wonderful) performance, but not really awards bait, I don’t think
So filler SAG nodOctober 13, 2019 at 10:29 pm #1203135262
People overreact to first reactions anyway but Bombshell always looked like SAG BAIT.October 13, 2019 at 2:33 pm #1203134852
Scorpion got meh reviews and the panel purposely left him and Kendrick off of the list so that Cardi would win. That was incredibly obvious.October 12, 2019 at 7:48 pm #1203133921

The Color Purple definitely had backlash over its portrayal of black men and Steven Spielberg being the director (who was grossly snubbed) but Whoopi seemed 2nd to me. At the time, winning the Drama Globe was a big deal in terms of who was a frontrunner.October 12, 2019 at 5:54 pm #1203133848
I understand your point but are Eddie Murphy’s reviews really as strong as Renee’s?
His reviews aren’t as over the top as hers (not a “GIVE HIM THE OSCAR NOW”) but the raves are definitely there. I’ve seen some “it’s his best by far”. But Judy Garland is the obvious Hollywood icon while Rudy Ray Moore was known in the blaxploitation genre so it’s not surprising that she has the more glowing ink. Still, even if Eddie Murphy was on par with those reviews, he wouldn’t win or be a frontrunner.October 12, 2019 at 5:17 pm #1203133817
Eddie Murphy at least has a comeback narrative. It’s funny it works for Renee Zellweger to the point where she’s a frontrunner while Eddie had to fight for a nom for a movie with much better reviews. All in the strength of the categories.October 12, 2019 at 3:07 pm #1203133769
Apparently, Lupita and Cynthia Erivo are both going to be interviewed by Oprah together. That’s one thing, Cynthia will be extremely thirsty in her campaign. Us will be screening for guilds for the next few days as will Bombshell.October 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm #1203133759
I really can’t believe y’all consider this an undeniable performance. I doubt she ends up in my personal best actress lineup at all by the time I’ve seen everything. She’s really starting to feel like the most overrated performance of the year to me.
Ditto, other than Jennifer Lopez. She plays Judy as expected and it’s not even her best.October 12, 2019 at 11:01 am #1203133575
What’s with the confidence in the Globes going for Renée over Johansson?
Several Globe members on Twitter have gushed over Renee Zellweger’s performance (including tea from Ana Maria Bahiana). Plus, it’s the exact type of performance that the Globes wouldn’t be able to resist anyways even if she is the sole nod for Judy.October 11, 2019 at 11:49 am #1203132441

Brad Pitt is not going to win Best Supporting Actor. Yes, earlier in the Oscar season he was the leading contender. He gives a great Hollywood performance and would make a worthy winner, however, his role is going to be considered light when compared to those by Al Pacino or Willem Dafoe. Plus Pitt technically has an Oscar already (yes, for producing, but still!). Voters will not feel like they owe him anything.
Al Pacino is said to have given an amazing performance in The Irishman. If that’s true, I don’t see how he can lose. He is a legendary actor and he only has ONE Oscar to his name… which is crazy! If his people are smart, they will promote the hell out of that to encourage voters to give him a 2nd Oscar.
Willem Dafoe would be on his 5th nomination (and 3rd in a row) if he gets in for The Lighthouse. 3-in-a-row did the trick for Renee Z. so it could work for him. Working against him however is that I feel his nomination would probably be the sole one that his film receives. He’s got an “overdue factor”, but the Academy clearly doesn’t care about that anymore (Sorry Glenn!).
I think the combination of a great performance by a Hollywood legend in a leading Oscar nominated film (The Irishman will probably receive 10+ nominations) will do the trick to give Al Pacino his 2nd Academy Award win.
This is contradictory since Al Pacino has an Oscar as well (an acting one) and this one was considered one of the weakest wins in the category. None of these arguments are convincing and all rely on subjectivity.
