I hope the “So-white” controversy somehow pushes Cynthia Erivo to a win. She deserves it, but we all know that narrative helps a lot too
Don’t worry. Erivo has this in the bag. Voters will be mesmerized by her grace and humility.
Both of you are joking right?!January 15, 2020 at 1:25 pm #1203286579
Now that I have seen Little Women. I’m just wondering why Saoirse Ronan made the list. It’s basically a Lady Bird sequel with a period setting. There’s nothing award worthy here. Ronan is a capable actress, but she needs to end this coming of age stuff. She’s in her early to mid 20s even. Jennifer Lawrence was already playing a full grown woman at that age. Laura Dern was way better here than she was in Marriage Story, but none is an award worthy performance. Just none
And I disagree with you on Ronan. Her character was way more different than Lady Bird, and her final scenes in Little Women were outstanding.January 15, 2020 at 1:08 pm #1203286527
Talking about versatility, I think Jennifer Lawrence is way more versatile than Saoirse Ronan, but they are both excellent actresses.January 15, 2020 at 11:56 am #1203286376
Whatever happened with Keira Knightly though? Is she never coming back to the awards race?
Her last nomination was in 2015 but this year she was critically acclaim in Official Secrets, with some calling it the best performance of her career, but once again her movie are overlooked (like Colette last year). It’s a shame.January 14, 2020 at 6:44 pm #1203284865
Taron Egerton even beat Leonardo DiCaprio at the Globes… Taron should have been nominated for his incredible performance. He even sing himself in the film, not like Rami Malek. It’s a tour-de-force of a performance.January 14, 2020 at 6:09 am #1203283496
Cynthia Erivo just proved that her ego is endless. She just posted her « thank you Academy » message on Intagram saying : « If you asked me 4 years ago in the middle of a Broadway show if I saw myself being nominated for an Academy Award, I may have said yes » I mean… girl.January 13, 2020 at 5:38 pm #1203282786
Little Women hands down. I thought she was extremely overrated for Lady Bird. She was excellent in Brooklyn and good in Atonement. But Little Women is something esle.January 13, 2020 at 12:54 pm #1203281989
I’m gonna throw this into the ring: Frozen 2 was written and co-directed by a woman. One more reason to slam the Academy in picking these two, two-bit foreign animated movies. They got in because nobody outside of the Academy membership, perhaps saw Klaus or I Lost My Body. It was also a anti-Disney protest vote. This snub is wrong in so many different ways.
It was pretty obvious, I’ve called it before just based on the Rotten Tomatoes score.
Frozen 2 : 77%
How to Train your Dragon 3 : 90%
Klaus : 93%
Missing Link : 89%
I Lost My Body : 97%
Toy Story 4 : 97%January 13, 2020 at 12:47 pm #1203281957
This is Saoirse 4th nomination for doing the same thing and playing characters in her comfort zone.
She actually better than overrated big ego Erivo and Johansson.January 13, 2020 at 5:42 am #1203279632
I wonder how much Cynthia Erivo paid them for her mediocre performanceJanuary 13, 2020 at 5:28 am #1203279356
