If 1917 can make it then so can PYW, it was definitely eligible. People are just coming up with excuses to justify the snub.January 25, 2021 at 11:35 am #1204000950
Or… maybe they just didn’t like PYW.January 23, 2021 at 8:23 pm #1203998242
Rooney Mara for sure.
Carey Mulligan and Michelle Williams are also pretty good.January 23, 2021 at 10:18 am #1203997692
Nothing role. Nothing performance.January 23, 2021 at 10:16 am #1203997689
Not as confident as others are in The Northman. It has a big cast and buzz but there seems to be less hype for it (at least at this point) than SoHo and I am getting a strange feeling it could end up being The Beguiled of this season.
The problem with the Northman won’t be the buzz. If it’s anything like Eggers’ previous films, then the problem will probably be that it’s too “edgy” for the Academy to embrace.January 22, 2021 at 9:23 am #1203996084
Y’all keep counting out Frances… BP and BD frontrunner + Searchlight sounds like a slam dunk to me! Plus, considering that rousing speech she gave during her last Oscar win, she really uplifted the industry’s movement toward more woman directed, woman centered films, which we’re seeing a whole lot of this season
I have her winning rn.January 22, 2021 at 9:20 am #1203996073

The thing that partially annoys me is that she was ‘only’ very good, in my opinion, because the film is very basic (although I did not hate it at all; it felt at least honest and somehow heartful). But I’m sure she could have delivered something à la Riva (Amour) or Rampling (45 Years) if given an adequately complex role.
Yes, I agree. I think a more experienced writer/director could have done a better job capturing her performance, especially considering how rich the source material is.
A longer run time would have also helped, in my opinion.January 22, 2021 at 8:45 am #1203996009
Lol. Happy for Loren, as I’m slowly catching up with the leading contenders and she’ll probably deliver my favorite performance among them (only watched Ma Rainey so far, and she’s better than Davis for sure). Also, @England is probably too polite to say anything, but I bet he’s having a hell of a blast right now.
She’s definitely my favorite of the leading contenders. I still have to see Zendaya and Andra, I guess, but I seriously doubt they will be able to top Sophia’s performance.January 22, 2021 at 7:38 am #1203995768
Starting to feel Loren might squeeze in and get the fifth spot.
