Feel like this is going to be unpopular but I’d say the most overrated thing this year has been the Best Actress category. Not because the five nominated aren’t among the most deserving but because all season long I’ve heard the category called stuff like “the best it’s been in years”. But is it? Outside of the nominated 5, no one even came close. And within the nominated five, the reason I’d argue there has been no clear frontrunner is not because they’re all so good but because none of their performances actually feel like Oscar winners.
Like most of the critics and film twitter seem to have got behind Carey Mulligan now (myself included) but this isn’t because anyone thinks she gives a performance for the ages. It’s because we’ve all seen her doing incredible work for years and she’s in a really zeitgeisty movie that evokes a lot of passion. For me, it’s the weakest year since 2009, which is ironic given that’s the last time Mulligan was nominated.April 16, 2021 at 10:44 am #1204203996
Feeble as it sounds, I hope this news spontaneously pushes her to a BAFTA nomination for QuizApril 16, 2021 at 10:39 am #1204203983

I’d actually kind of live for Davis ending up as the acting win for thisApril 11, 2021 at 2:37 pm #1204194387
It’s fact that Closes film had no support. It had zero nods outside of her at any major awards show.
Sure. Which is why I’m still predicting Boseman. But we shouldn’t forget that Ma Rainey missed picture. That could end up being a comparable warning sign in hindsight.
