Regina King (obvious winner)
Alt: Claire Foy
(I don’t see anybody that excited for Margot Robbie, I don’t even see her anywhere campaigning. She apparently refused to be a presenter at other shows to be only a presenter for the Oscars, or some story like that. There’s zero excitement for this film. This looks like the mandatory SAG fluke of the season).
It will be the shock of the year if Regina King isn’t nominated. I haven’t even seen the film to judge properly, but like I said before, she’s the only person with winning buzz here, how could she not be nominated? Somebody will win at SAG and the speech has to begin with “thank you SAG for not nominating Regina King, it’s the only reason I won”. Basically the same thing that Helen Mirren (2001) and Albert Finney should’ve said when they won.January 15, 2019 at 9:35 pm #1202735881
wtf?! the delusion is real. SAG received screeners from Beale along with other Annapurna distributed films (e.g. Vice). as for BAFTA its even more clear given how they nominated Jenkins for Screenplay and deliberately snubbed King over Foy, Robbie, Adams, Stone & Weisz. You can argue that Weisz & Foy were nominated due to home turf bias, and that Robbie and Stone were nominated due to the roles they played, but thats still Adams being nominated over King.
just admit that King’s performance is not as good as the hype suggests. it was a nothing, overglorified performance. Weisz, Adams, Kidman and Stone all performed much better than her this year.
This post conveniently leaves out that Amy Adams is….fucking Amy Adams. Not just some girl. That could be another real, understandable reason why King got snubbed in the end. This is, after all, the same awards show that nominated her for Big Eyes.
Regina King will be an Oscar nominee and they won’t find another nominee to reward considering who the other contenders are and their trajectory this season. She has been the main supporting actress with *winning* buzz during the whole season. People don’t even know who to predict at SAG because why? Because Regina King isn’t nominated. She’s not losing that Oscar. There’s nobody else.January 15, 2019 at 7:18 am #1202734940
The fact that Marina de Tavira doesn’t even have one nomination from a critics group is mind boggling to me. She truly had one of the best performances of the year in my opinion.
Cuaron knows that too and he always makes sure he mentions Aparicio and De Tavira when accepts awards. He looks desperate for those two to get nominations. Everybody is campaigning this year. It’s fun, it’s silly, it’s embarrassing, it’s everything.January 14, 2019 at 11:23 pm #1202734688
can you imagine though if Bale, Ali, and Weisz all win not just at SAG but at the Oscars?! that will be three previous Oscar winners all winning their second Oscars in the same night. then having Glenn Close (a veteran actress) winning for the first time.
that would be a record breaking night.
(highlyyy doubt that would ever happen… Oscars like to throw a wrench in things like that)
1994 Hanks Lange and Wiest won their second Oscars while a veteran who was also overdue won his first, Martin Landau.January 14, 2019 at 2:37 am #1202733447
Ali is such a lock right now.
I need Sam Elliot to finally be nominated (or not) in order to believe that he can take this as a veteran vote and a way to block Ali from getting this second sort of undeserved win with a huge fraud label on it. Perhaps once the nomination comes, his campaign can shift into winning mode and do some much needed harm to this boring race.
I highly doubt Grant can get this even with a BAFTA win that will read as “I’m just British. Not really a threat”.
Elliot seems like the only choice right now, but a very distant choice. A Star is Born is flopping hard at awards shows.January 14, 2019 at 2:25 am #1202733445
That tie was ridiculous. Lady Gaga’s reaction was ridiculous and over the top of course. She saved herself a tiny bit with the piano joke. But whatever we might think of Gaga’s reaction, let’s not pretend that Glenn Close isn’t in her own over the top, fake reaction mode too. She’s playing the game and it’s quite obvious.
These idiots couldn’t be more transparent by rewarding the three leading contenders and covering their bases. At least the gambled all of it on Bale. But still, these ties happened thanks to the Globes and the votes are fake as fuck.January 13, 2019 at 5:05 pm #1202732265
That supporting awards presentstion was awful. I don’t even understand what was going on.January 12, 2019 at 9:28 pm #1202731320
Saw Green Book. Mortense was pretty bad. This italian schtick (because it was a lot of things) was terrible. Can’t believe he was a front runner for the win ealier in the race.January 12, 2019 at 9:27 pm #1202731315
I don’t know who takes the fifth spot, but if it’s Blunt then I’ve seen all contenders. Glenn Close should win this. Olivia Colman should’ve gone supporting because Emma Stone has the lead role in this. She’s second fot me. Then McCarthy in third place. She was amazing. Then Gaga then Blunt.January 12, 2019 at 6:15 am #1202730700
Of course this was gonna happen and of course it happened when the top contenders for the top 4 were all in the bottom. This show needs to be thankful that their contestants are as fun and funny as they are, because the producers just can’t find a way to make the show’s rules and procedures make sense. It’s such a mess every season.
These girls are just letting Manila run away with a spot in the final 4. At least this week she really made top 2 on her own and not because everybody else was that bad.
The roast was fun becuase the editors finally realized that they can cut the trainwrecks (Trinity, Valentina, Naomi) a little shorter, unlike Alexis Michelle.
Anyway, I think Valentina is digging her own grave here, so I’m considering taking her out of my top 4. Waiting on the ridiculous scheme that brings Latrice back and pushes her safely into the top 4. What else are they gonna do? Bring back Jasmine, Farrah or Gia? Sure. Then we wait until the end when Ru decides that the winner will be chosen by his aunts and nieces via text message and Latrice wins the whole thing while people pretend it’s not worse than Trixie’s win.January 11, 2019 at 9:07 am #1202730014
Gaga worked with RKelly like MANY, MANY, MAAAAANY people worked with RKelly. She did a song that wasn’t even a hit. So it’s not like we saw them hanging out, performing and getting nominated at every awards show. They performed it once and people barely remember it and the song itself.
People trying to blame Gaga for something everybody has done is bullshit, just because she’s in the middle of an awards race.
One misguided girl recording a song with him is very low on the list of things people did wrong in the R Kelly saga.
These campaigns are getting crazy desperate.January 11, 2019 at 6:43 am #1202729867
Seems to me like this is the one top award of any televised show that Black Panther will win.
These people have done MANY stupid things in the past, but I don’t think Bohemian Rhapsody can win this.
One of these days Black Panther will have to win something and this seems like the most logical choice. Unless they win PGA (which is possible too).
A Star is Born won’t win this, Blackkklansman seems like it could get its thunder stolen by Black Panther, and for them to reward CRA for reasons we know, they should and will just go with BP if they need to go there. It’s the better and more important of the two films.
Actor: Cooper or Malek (I guess Cooper)
Sup Actor: Ali
Sup Actress: Adams or Blunt (I suppose Adams)January 9, 2019 at 8:30 am #1202727475
For me 2012. Waltz, Arkin, Deniro, Hoffman and Jones. Amazing line-up with no clear frontrunner.
2013 and 2014 were good to but the winner was obvious from the start.
And the result was as dull and repetitive as it could’ve been. I love Waltz’s performance in Django but between the fraud and the performance being pretty much the same as the winning one from just 3 years before made it useless to have an “exciting” race.
Hoffman should’ve won. And even if I didn’t like Lincoln that much, it would’ve been much more exciting to see grumpy Jones win or a third win for DeNiro. (Arkin should’ve given his spot to real winner Sam Jackson).January 8, 2019 at 1:37 pm #1202726202
Farrelly took a huge step today, but I think that the film will ultimately keep underwhelming and he’ll be snubbed in favor of somebody else. My prediction is Lanthimos. I can also see McKay missing as it doesn’t make sense to predict him right now considering how Vice is doing. The problem is that there’s nobody else with a realistic shot. And I think Black Panther has a shot at many nods, just not Coogler.
All I think is that both McKay and Farrelly won’t make it in.January 8, 2019 at 5:27 am #1202725479
The easiest thing for them is to go with Adams. And she’ll have an Oscar nod to go along with it which is the norm.
The weird win will be Blunt since I think she’ll miss both Oscar nominations. I can’t remember this happening except for Idris Elba. But I think Blunt wins this. She’s enough of a movie star with two big movies and actors will remember that. I think Vice’s only competitive category is Actor.
