Smart money is on Hopkins winning. You could argue Hopkins is winning BAFTA because he is a Brit. What is your argument to Boseman losing Indie Spirit award to Riz Ahmed?
The argument is that the Film Independent membership comprises a vast majority of non-industry people. Yes, BAFTA is industry, but it is not Hollywood.

Roxie Hart. Oh to be in the audition room where Toni Collette blew Rob Marshall away… Weinstein wanted Zellweger–I think this is more common knowledge here.
Not sure how reliable this website is, but allegedly the auditionees for Roxie were Aniston, Applegate, Arquette, Barrymore, Binoche, Blanchett(??), Bullock, Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis….it’s getting even weirder, Ellen DeGeneres???? Diaz, Claire Forlani …….. okay, it gets more bizarre but it’s kind of funny to imagine lol.
The website claims Nicole Kidman turned down Roxie. Did she do that for The Hours?
Can we stomp out or confirm the validity of this website, for our collective knowledge? lol

The Spirits are this week. Predictions which I feel confident: Best Feature: Nomadland Best Director Chloe Zhao Best Actress Carey Mulligan Supporting Actor Paul Raci Supporting Actress Yuh Jung Youn International Feature Quo Vadis, Aida? Cinematography Nomadland Editing Nomadland I’m torn in: Actor: They are sheep, so they probably will just go with Boseman, but I can see Riz winning here since his performance might speaks more with this voting body. First Feature: Sound of Metal is the frontrunner, but I think The Forty Year Old Version could win here to compensate the lack of recognition of the movie in the Spirits. If Riz + Raci wins, then SoM could lose here to spread the wealth. First Screenplay: My first instinct was to predict Miss Juneteenth, but I’ve seen a lot of people on Film Twitter giving tons of love to Palm Springs and got in WGA after all. Documentary: They could give it to Dick Johnson to compensate the Oscar snub, but I think they’ll try to give Time, Collective or Crip Camp momentum to beat My Octopus Teacher. Original Screenplay: Minari or Promising Young Woman ?
Miss Juneteenth is one of my five favorites of the year

I feel confident that Hopkins is the frontrunner now. 4. Many great actors and legends passed away with no competitive Oscar. Cary Grant, Greta Garbo, Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich, just to name a few.
What Eddy Q said^. Also we just saw the Academy vicariously award Garland; we know this played a role in Zellweger’s win.

Mulligan has done Broadway once before while Kirby hasn’t (although her stage work in West End or National Theatre are so worth noting). Both also started on stage. There remains Day who’s a total newcomer to acting, and that’s why I doubt her chance.
Two of Mulligan’s shows transferred to Broadway actually, while her Off-Broadway and London credits are of equal note. Mulligan certainly has had a rich career on stage.

https://broadwaydirect.com/broadway-and-the-oscars/ Only McDormand & Davis have stage pedigrees of the 5 BA noms.
You forgot Mulligan and Kirby are in the category.

The lack of SAG ensemble nomination for Promising Young was the final deathblow to Mulligan. They did not like how Mulligan interacts with her male costars because she is threatening or humiliating them. This is not a one man show like Joaquin Phoenix in Joker. SAG knew what they were doing by snubbing Promising
You offer this up as fact when there are plenty of other very likely reasons it missed a nom. For one, aside from Mulligan and Burnham, the other performances in the film are cameos. Also, one very literal definition of the word “ensemble” says that performers perform together. This is not the case for PYW, in which Mulligan has myriad one-on-one scenes with the other actors. And this definition applies to all of the nominated films.

Okay, based on this and the other thread where he trashes Davis and Day, and steals Crabbie’s avatar lol, it’s clear TrumpBiden has reached a new level of trolling and bigotry.
