Adam Driver is winning this. Y’all are hyping Joaquin way too much.
Three previous nominations. Regarded as one of the best of our time. Popular movie. Front and center of the one man show. Transformative performance with an illness. How are we hyping Joaquin too much?September 19, 2019 at 9:17 am #1203086634
He is my favorite actor. Such talent. Such beauty. Can’t quite see someone like him nowadays. My account name comes from him.September 11, 2019 at 6:54 am #1203069027
Zellweger winning Oscar for portraying Judy Garland would make me get over the fact that Garland never won her Oscar. Let’s make this happen.August 31, 2019 at 6:56 am #1203050242
Phoenix is not winning. There are many obstacles for him to overcome and he isn’t going to. If he hits precursors and even wins one or two he’ll get an Oscar nom but they’re not voting for him.
Three previous nominations. Regarded as one of the best actors in his generation. The film got rave reviews from Venice. Transformative performance. This role is loved by the Academy. Such a narrative. What are the obstacles? I am not even a fan of Phoenix.August 31, 2019 at 6:37 am #1203050165
Let’s be real. Phoenix isn’t winning for playing the Joker. A dead corpse won ten years ago for the same role and probably played it much better. I think Antonio Banderas may stand a chance.
This is coming from Adam Driver or Antonio Banderas. Period.August 31, 2019 at 6:21 am #1203050089
My gut told me Joaquin Pheonix is winning this one and it is not even close. Could go down as one of the best winning performance alongside De Niro, Hopkin, Brando, Hanks and Nicholson.February 24, 2019 at 6:06 pm #1202789552
Let’s hope for a Colman upset.February 24, 2019 at 5:28 pm #1202788874
Chris always have strong reaction when somebody said Regina King is not winning.February 24, 2019 at 5:27 pm #1202788857
I guess Bale is hoping for Amy to win, did he? He is also the the first one to sit down when Dicaprio won. He is certainly not the most diplomatic person.February 24, 2019 at 7:59 am #1202787580
With all those ballots, standing ovation and following experts’ choice, I went for Stallone that year. Then, I told myself the only thing that I should trust is the precursor award. But here I am again, predicting Regina King, who is not nominated in SAG and BAFTA. I would be punching myself up and down if Weisz wins tomorrow.February 24, 2019 at 7:47 am #1202787562
I’m still predicting Ali, but all these anonymous ballots for Grant have planted seeds of doubt in my mind. I now think Malek, not Ali, is the most secure of the four acting frontrunners; not only is he backed by the precursors, but the majority of the published ballots went for him including, astonishingly, all 20 of those surveyed by the New York Times. While I’m ignoring the ballots for supporting actor and sticking with the ever-reliable stats, it’s easier to imagine recent Oscar-winner Ali losing at the last hurdle to a clear alternative choice than it is for Malek, none of whose competitors seem to have a huge amount of passionate support behind them.
These secret ballots are made to confuse you. In those ballots, the presumed strong frontrunner seems to be struggling (e.g. Ali, Malek, Close, Cuaron, Blackkklansman for screenplay) while the weaker frontrunner (i.e. King) is dominating. They made almost all people believe that Stallone is the overwhelming favourite.
I agreed that Malek is winning in a landslide. Tariq said 90% of the SAG voters he interviewed were voting for Malek at the time. It cannot really reflect the academy but the industry support can convert into momentum.
