I said next year, a.k.a. movies released in 2020, a.k.a. Oscars 2021, a.k.a. 93rd Academy Awards, a.k.a. the year Best Actress will be a bloodbath the world will never recover from.
My bad. I got confused. The next Oscars are TECHNICALLY being held next year, so… XD
Anyway, that’s too bad. Do you think she’d have a better chance if they decided to push forward with the release and she competed at the 92nd Oscars (movies released in 2019, Awards in 2020)?September 9, 2019 at 10:08 am #1203065514
Sounds like Pike will be the only player for Radioactive and considering how stacked next year’s Best Actress lineup already looks, even she is likely to miss out.
I don’t even know if Pike’s going to be eligible for this year’s Oscars. Isn’t there a rule that requires the film to be screened for paid admission in LA County before the end of the year? Right now, the film has no scheduled screenings between TIFF and the end of the year, and TIFF isn’t in LA County, so…September 4, 2019 at 11:15 am #1203057684

None of the above.
My choice would have a first past the post voting system, BUT instead of nominating 5 films or 10 films, the nominations would go to all films that earned at least 5% of the vote.August 22, 2019 at 6:19 am #1203034774
The Predictions Center currently has Theron in Lead and Kidman and Robbie in Supporting.
IMO, Theron will be a lock unless the film flops critically.
Kidman and Robbie are wild cards, because both will have to deal with splitting votes with The Goldfinch and OUATIH, respectively. I don’t see both of them getting in unless (1) this film is better than both of those other two films; and (2) they have an undeniable case, like Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz did last year.August 14, 2019 at 6:24 am #1203023302
Now Supporting Actress: I’m predicting Pugh because of the “MVP” comments from screenings, but I would watch out for Watson. Dern and Streep won’t ruin their chances for Marriage Story and The Laundromat nominations and Watson seems to have bigger roles then them. Though in one of the screening reactions, they said she was miscast, I believe that was just one person (unlike Chalamet) and she has a substantial storyline in this film.
For some odd reason, the Predictions board seems to be way more favorable towards Streep than anyone else.
Four predictors have only Streep getting in.
Two predictors have only Pugh getting in.
One predictor has both Streep and Pugh getting in.
One predictor has both Streep and Watson getting in.
Four predictors have Streep not only getting in, but WINNING.July 20, 2019 at 8:35 am #1202986743
Saw the trailer last night (it was part of the previews for The Lion King).
My first thought was, “Judi Dench looks like the Cowardly Lion in this movie.”
My second thought was, “Wait a minute. As far as I’m concerned, people don’t get creeped out when they see the Cowardly Lion.”
So… I don’t get it.June 18, 2019 at 8:04 am #1202942736
Looks like the initial reports of Fisher playing Elvira were wrong. Leslie Mann will be playing that part instead. Fisher is still attached, but she’s in fact playing a different role, most likely Ruth.May 24, 2019 at 11:47 am #1202907247
Release has been pushed back to February 2020 in order to accommodate demands to change Sonic’s design.May 21, 2019 at 10:45 am #1202903228
But Comer is really coming for awards the next Oscars seasons and I’m here for it.
I absolutely agree. I can see her as becoming either the next Deborah Kerr (she has similar looks and the same voice) or the next Robin Williams (her ability to change voices/accents rivals that of Robin). Both ended their careers with 4+ nominations to their name, plus one win (although Kerr’s win was an Honorary Oscar, not a competitive one).May 19, 2019 at 4:47 pm #1202900204

This sounds awesome! Elvira should be Anne Hathaway or Claire Foy
I actually think they would be better suited to play Ruth, the second wife of Dan Stevens’ character.
Elvira will basically be trolling the other three characters for the entire film. Fisher is more than capable of taking that to the nth degree.
Speaking of Fisher, be prepared for category fraud if this gets Oscar attention. Although she’s co-lead with Dench, odds are she’ll get the same treatment Cate Blanchett got with Notes on a Scandal because, well, her co-lead is the Dame!
