Because some people here saying that Kirby gives the best performances, What year do you think that Vanessa’s performance would’ve swept the awards season? For me it’s 2011 (Streep), 2014 (Moore) and 2016 (Stone).
I’m thinking 2015. In other years, the winners were either considered overdue or were backed by a studio with a strong campaign. Further back in time, 2005.

Michelle Pfeiffer made an Instagram post congratulating Glenn Close on her Oscar nomination the day of the ceremony in 2019, even though her nomination had been announced long before. Let’s not read too much into this.
Not to mention that the stylist’s post has “#nom” on it. How convenient that they overlooked that.

Out of Africa. I’ve never been a fan of Meryl’s performances overall but she totally carried this film on her shoulders. And the film itself is an epic. But nearly all of these were great films.

I’m so mentally checked out and drained from this years award season that I keep forgetting that the SAGs are today lol
I’m so done with this award season. I don’t give fuck who wins what anymore. This has been the most pointless, most drawn-out award season ever. And then they wonder why the ratings of all these award shows are so low.

I’m still not sold on Mulligan winning best actress regardless of the SAG outcome, but what pains me is Vanessa Kirby going home completely empty-handed for giving the best performance in this category. Her movie is too irrelevant wbk but hopefully homecountry advantage gives her the edge at BAFTA. I don’t care if she doesn’t win Oscar which she possibly wouldn’t even with SAG + BAFTA combo, but at least let her have something out of this mess of a race.
It’s bewildering to think that Vanessa could go home empty handed. To this very day I do not understand the hype over Mulligan’s performance. Carey didn’t do shit especially when compared to Vanessa’s performance. It’s mindboggling that Vanessa’s performance has been ignored nearly all season long. It’s almost as if all these awarding bodies watched an alternate version of Pieces of a Woman that they didn’t think Vanessa’s performance was award worthy lol. And this whole idea that “she’ll have a good career one day so she doesn’t need to win” is preposterous. What kinds of roles can she expect to get in the future???? To play someone’s wife? To play someone’s daughter? It’s extremely unlikely that she’ll ever get another challenging role like this.

I believe it was Annette Bening for American Beauty in this category. So it is possible, but unlikely considering it last happened in 2000. Also, Hilary Swank was the other clear competitor throughout the season, whereas this year we have so many that winning both industry precursors would be a very solid sign of Oscar victory.
Swank was not nominated for a BAFTA that year. Her nomination came the following year, probably because of eligibility issues.

Vanessa Kirby or Mcdormand winning both could also be a huge momentum swing for either. Since those two orgs share common voters so that would make bafta super important, under those circumstances.
The fact that Vanessa got in at BAFTA as her film’s sole nomination speaks volumes to the strength of her performance.

In 20 years, 8 Best Actress winners were in movies that did not got nominated for BP.
In 20 years, only 5 Best Actress winners were the sole acting nominees from movies that got nominated for BP. 4 of those winners won all 4 precursors.

I do see a scenario where Minari ends up becoming a Lady Bird and goes home winless (they have almost identical sets of nominations except Lead Actor instead of Actress and the additional Original Score nomination). Its best shot at winning seems to be this category which is the messiest of all, and I do have a feeling that Bakalova is the frontrunner now, and Close could gain momentum to take it all. If that happens, oh well. The nominations in themselves are a win!
There seems to be this perception here that just because a movie got several nominations, that it’s going to wind up winning something. When in reality, the nominations are the reward and it doesn’t “have to” win anything at all. I remember when American Hustle got 10 nominations but it didn’t win anything, and that film was a huge hit.

I couldn’t decide between The English Patient and Dances With Wolves because I love them both. But I went with The English Patient.

Ehm Davis is dead last. What is it with this forum keep pushing for Davis and thinking Kirby is a nonfactor..
Because months ago they created their own little narrative about Davis winning and they are continuing to cling to that narrative. She didn’t get a BAFTA nod, but they think that if she just wins SAG she’s somehow going to win the Oscar. How, when there is zero buzz for her performance. The end result of this whole awards season is that Davis will win the Oscar??? That is just so ridiculous on so many levels.
The way Vanessa Kirby hit every precursor and haters on here still thought she would be snubbed this morning
The icing on the cake would be if she wins both SAG and BAFTA just to piss off the naysayers.
