I think we need to seriously consider a few “insider sources” (the legit ones, for sure). Then we may find that nothing is surprising, they’re all predictable and right in front of us. The Anne Thompson article about Gaga mentions how the SAG members were crazy for it. And then we see HoG with 3 noms even an ensemble. Thompson isn’t some industry guru but at least her reports on the SAG reactions are reliable. BTR was said to receive a “standing ovation” at the SAG screenings. And then we see 2 noms for it. However we kept hearing how SAG reacts negatively toward Spencer, some even said people “left the movie midway”. Although it sounds ridiculous, we actually see Kristen missing a nom today. Again, maybe nothing is a surprise it’s just we’ve been ignoring something
I did consider a Kristen snub the other day after the globe loss but I just thought she’d have enough support to at least get nominated.
I guess people really seem to have a problem with spencer thoJanuary 12, 2022 at 9:47 am #1204720627
Kristen is getting a lot of attention, imo the nom is a lock.

Just a reminder that the top 2 nominees for bafta are already set in stone. We just won’t know them until the committee picks the other 4.January 12, 2022 at 8:21 am #1204719836
Bradley has a real shot of getting in. He has SAG and AACTA noms so far which happen to be the only 2 places where people that also vote for Oscars vote.January 12, 2022 at 8:19 am #1204719818

So Spencer continues to underperform… who’s surprised at this point?January 10, 2022 at 9:06 pm #1204714247
A Gaga Best Actress Oscar win would get much more hate that a K-Stew Best Actress Oscar win. So many people on Film Twitter don’t take Gaga seriously as an actress, so they’ll probably act like her winning Best Actress is a slap in the face.
Funny how for the industry it’s the other way around.January 10, 2022 at 9:03 pm #1204714238
HoG hasn’t made a profit yet. Some info from actual box office experts/industry people: https://mobile.twitter.com/ERCboxoffice/status/1480215990939971596 https://mobile.twitter.com/seanpaune/status/1480393156919181313
Come on now, pretty much no film has made a profit during the pandemic except for Spider-Man. An R-rated adult drama grossing close to $130 million is a success, no matter how hard people try to deny it.January 9, 2022 at 10:14 pm #1204711061
Kristen can still win but at this point she’s weaker than Carey was.January 2, 2022 at 8:41 pm #1204693418
the correct question would be which one I don’t disagree with, but some big ones that come to mind: Viola Davis, Charlize Theron, Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins (TSOTL), Kathy Bates, Parasite, Nomadland…December 31, 2021 at 1:50 pm #1204689123
Olivia excellent, Jessie excellent, but a thing I really loved about this is how all the actors were given their little moments to shine throughout the film. Ed, Peter, Paul, Dakota, Dagmara Jack, Oliver… everyone had at least one scene to show what they are capable of which was pretty nice.
Gyllenhaal’s work is also impressive, sure you can tell it’s a debut at times but that doesn’t take away from the fact that her work here is genuinely great.December 30, 2021 at 2:24 pm #1204687773
Surprise surprise this sucked.December 30, 2021 at 2:23 pm #1204687769
Now, THIS is a film that should be getting all the attention another film is getting.
All 4 actors should be nominated, I don’t care about the category, all of them are better than at least 2 of the soon-to-be nominees in lead or supporting.December 23, 2021 at 12:39 am #1204675047
Waiting for SPC to WAKE UP. Their late push worked for the Father but they can’t just risk it like this for Penelope when she has THE performance to get in.Not now
