Late Night doesn’t have the reviews to back up a sole screenplay nom.June 14, 2019 at 5:59 pm #1202938426
The Grammys never respected Katy Perry like that in the first place. Even in one of the biggest pop eras ever, they still left her in the dust.June 14, 2019 at 2:04 pm #1202938224

Jerome SHOULD win this, no contest. Then, Harris.June 14, 2019 at 10:41 am #1202937868
You Swifties are so wrapped up with beating Ariana that all logic is thrown out the window. Some of the most foolish shit I’ve read in this section of the site.June 14, 2019 at 9:16 am #1202937743
Sicko Mode was viciously overrated. It’s fine. I’d rather them give it to Kendrick than anything Drake related.June 13, 2019 at 9:22 pm #1202936976
Taylor will not be a factor for a win anywhere.June 13, 2019 at 9:16 pm #1202936957
This will be her worst album, lol. As saturated as the 1989 era was, as soon as you heard Shake It Off or Blank Space or even Bad Blood, you knew they were instant hits. These songs she’s putting out now AINT IT.June 13, 2019 at 4:59 pm #1202936672
Yep, Johansson doesn’t need to be making any mistakes this time. Besides, if not Awkwafina or Zellweger, then maybe Theron could win Comedy Globe ala Christian Bale for Vice.June 13, 2019 at 4:08 pm #1202936625
You also have to include how other precursors would respond. Globes should nominate both. Lupita would make perfect sense for SAG as she has the type of performance to get a bunch of #1 votes. It’s also populist and showy. Awkwafina, while Im predicting her for SAG, I wouldn’t be surprised if she somehow missed. From what I heard, she’s very subtle in The Farewell and if they don’t see her as undeniable or anything, she could slip? But perhaps where both of them would have trouble with is BAFTA. BFCA would easily nominate them simply because predictions in a group of 6.June 13, 2019 at 3:55 pm #1202936600
She probably made more money than she would have if Lemonade went on Spotify and Apple Music, because she encouraged purchases of the album, which retailed for $20 on iTunes.
It’s still frustrating because this blocked songs like Formation and Sorry from being bigger hits than what they were even though they sold 1M pure each. They would’ve done wonders on streaming if released properly.June 13, 2019 at 3:44 pm #1202936577
I kind of feel like Us is forgotten? Lupita would have to be a critics pick and I’m not sure I see it. Awkwafina makes more sense as someone the critics back. And also, I know stats are broken all the time, but has there been a year where there’s been multiple POC nominated in Best Actress? Assuming Erivo is in.
Lupita feels like an LAFCA pick to me (she won there for 12 Years A Slave). Still, I would have her alt to Awkwafina though I’m not sure the latter would be a critical sweeper either. I don’t know.
And nope, this decade, we haven’t had multiple POC women in Best Actress. But this year can be the one to change if you believe Erivo and Awkwafina are making it together.June 13, 2019 at 3:23 pm #1202936552
I was surprised that Lemonade ended up in the top 5 for the year end list even though it only spent 80 weeks but I guess that was due to sales. The lack of availability on streaming services is what prevented it having even greater commerical success and I still have no clue why Beyoncé thought that was a good idea.
And even then, I agree that Self Titled losing to Pharrell was more shocking than her losing in the GF categories for either that or Lemonade.June 13, 2019 at 3:16 pm #1202936545
It all depends on how Lover sells. Taylor is (arguably) a legendary artist who has set such high standards for herself.
Lol, if she only gets a pop album nomination again, will y’all still use this same argument for her? If this has the same reception for Reputation, or worse, Lover won’t be competitive.June 13, 2019 at 1:36 pm #1202936410
Sorry, I don’t understand why you are so sure about Lupita. Us did not provoke any awards buzz there are also more Oscars bait contenders to rise. Do you really think she has a chance? Just wondering.
With those personal reviews she got and the critical and commercial success of the film, she absolutely has a chance. Not to mention her being an Oscar winner.
