I don’t know how far <i>The Mauritanian </i>or Foster will go and was tempted to drop her from my predictions here but honestly why wouldn’t the HFPA want to make headlines by nominating Jodie Foster AND Anthony Hopkins at the same ceremony? I feel quite confident she’s in here.
Yes, they gave Golden Globe to Dicaprio and Winslet at the same night. So it makes sense they would nominate Jodie Foster. It is Jodie Foster we are talking about.January 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm #1203992659
The win is between Kirby and Mulligan.
No way Davis is gonna win for this performance. The performance is nothing special. If the academy really loves McDormand, they could give her the third win but she have accumulated more nominations before the exclusive third win.January 18, 2021 at 11:04 pm #1203990664
Just wanna say that Monique has the best supporting actress performance of the past 2 decades.
It is close between her and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Supporting Actress winners are weak when compared to the Supporting Actor winners like Javier Barden, Heath Ledger, Christoph Waltz in Danjo, J. K. Simmons, etc.January 13, 2021 at 5:16 am #1203981145
Frances is gonna eat that role UP. This is perfect casting
By next year she’ll have accumulated EIGHT nominations and some still want to deny her legendary status. Like, please
She had five previous nominations. It would be her seven, not eight.January 7, 2021 at 8:04 pm #1203968575
When it comes to winning 3rd or 4th Oscar, the most popular answer is always Blanchett.January 7, 2021 at 7:26 am #1203967227
I am surprised no one mentioned Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind. The most iconic female movie character ever.January 7, 2021 at 12:42 am #1203966925
Jacki Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook. This is really a surprise nominationJanuary 5, 2021 at 7:25 pm #1203965162
Montgomery CliftJanuary 2, 2021 at 6:14 am #1203957669
I think she would’ve been easily win in 1984. Seriously, who remembers or really like Sally Field in Places in The Heart?
At least we all remembered her Oscar speech lol
If Lange did not win for Tootsie, she would probably win over Field. What is the point of giving Field her second before giving Lange her first. I guess Lange hated her Tootsie win for quite some time.December 31, 2020 at 2:14 pm #1203955421
Don’t try to kill off any voice who support Hopkins please. He is a bigger legend than Boseman and he never won GG and SAG before. It is not that his performance is weaker than Boseman’s. I can see Boseman winning Oscar but he is not the absolute lock-in to win everything.December 29, 2020 at 8:27 pm #1203952428
Glad that people bring up Langella again. He is a respected theater actor with a previous lead nomination. He seems like a more obvious name check in this category for nomination among other Chicago boys.December 29, 2020 at 7:00 pm #1203952293
She totally would’ve won in lead for Fences and she’d totally be easily winning in supporting this year for Ma Rainey’s.
I guessed she was really scared of Natalie Portman’s review in Jackie. It was like “one of the best performance” type of comments. Turn out it wasn’t even Portman who was winning. I believe Davis should win over Stone if she is in lead. But this year she is really just a supporting role in Ma Rainey.December 28, 2020 at 7:52 pm #1203950732
On a separate note what I find interesting about Mulligan is how she’s b0th a veteran and an ingenue. What I mean by that is she’s delivered a tonne of noteworthy and acclaimed performances during the past decade (in smaller films that have largely gone unnoticed) yet she’s still quite young enough to play ingenues (although Cassie in Promising Young Woman is not an ingenue).
It’s almost as if she’s still rising in Hollywood yet she’s very well respected and is arguably overdue. Schrodinger’s cat lol.
Yes, you are spot on that she is both a veteran and an ingenue. Mulligan is so easy for the voters to root for. The narrative is there. She delivered the best female lead performance in 2009 but the academy awarded Bullock instead. She delivered great performance but was not over-nominated. She is well spoken. She is beautiful but not too beautiful.
For the genre problem, it is not like no one has won in this category with female villain performance. When Kathy Bates and Charlize Theron won, they are relatively unknown in the industry too. I really think this is Mulligan’s year.
