The reviews are very strong, which I think was expected given Jenkins’ track record. This does feel like the last real bid to shake up the race.
The real unknown in all this is viewership, though, in my view. TQG has already taken on and dispatched ecstatically-reviewed rivals. TUR doesn’t need to be as popular as TQG (if that were the bar, it would probably be insurmountable), it just needs to become a solid hit and let the critical buzz (ideally) do the rest.April 25, 2021 at 8:28 pm #1204226345
Hopkins was my favourite performance of the year in any category, I’m thrilled he won, though I can obviously see why people wanted Boseman to win.
McDormand wouldn’t have been my choice, but it’s impressive that she’s now the third person to win for both acting and producing.April 25, 2021 at 8:19 pm #1204226135
This should at least quiet the people who perennially act like the Academy looks at the winners in advance when planning the ceremony.April 25, 2021 at 8:15 pm #1204225998
The BAFTAs somehow turned out to call both lead acting prizes despite their juried system.April 25, 2021 at 8:06 pm #1204225713
And the frontrunner throughout the season takes it. Quite an impressive campaign, really.
And that leaves us with Actress as the last big mystery of the night.April 25, 2021 at 8:05 pm #1204225690
I’m assuming they’re doing this because they want to end with Boseman’s presumed win, but it’s still odd.April 25, 2021 at 7:39 pm #1204225265
H.E.R. now halfway to EGOT.April 25, 2021 at 7:37 pm #1204225224
C’mon “Husavik”, it’s the only song nominated that I’ve seen evidence of anyone giving a damn about.April 25, 2021 at 7:23 pm #1204225043
I don’t really get the sentiment that Nomadland is in trouble — it’s not like any of its rivals have won anything they weren’t expected to, and none of them look on track to win more than a couple of Oscars either.April 25, 2021 at 7:07 pm #1204224743
Hmm, I believe I predicted Nomadland, so now I’m starting to miss a few.April 25, 2021 at 7:05 pm #1204224694
Mank avoids getting blanked.
