Also good to note that the Globes love ingenues more than AMPAS, who tends to be more hesitant with giving awards to newcomers. Her two big competitors are names who have been nominated before (obviously one of them being a former winner). Not the best scenario you wanna be in if you’re looking to win an Oscar
Not the best scenario to be in at all. Can she overcome it? Sure. But I think it’s a slimmer chance than some care to own up to. It’s my own personal belief that they should’ve held this until next year, and really rolled out a “formal” campaign for her and tried to capitalize on more nominations as well. It seems very rushed, thus, that’s why she missed major precursors. She’s hustling now, but we will see.April 8, 2021 at 9:10 am #1204186151
Andra gives one of my favorite performances in this category this year. But people thinking this will be easy street for her are looking through some huge rose colored glasses. She may be promoting her ass off, but the one thing the Academy has remained consistent with is its very difficult for a newcomer to the acting arena to swoop in and win. Especially against major heavy hitters in Best Actress. Stefani Germanotta couldn’t pull it off a couple of years ago. We really think it’s going to be that easy for Andra??
Oh, and did I forget to mention “A Star Is Born” went into the ceremony with far more nominations?March 15, 2021 at 11:39 am #1204135514

Congratulations to Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom on receiving 5 Oscar nominations today!
Of course, a special and major congrats to the Queen herself, Viola Davis! She broke her own record that she previously shared with Octavia Spencer! Can’t wait to see what the Queen has in store for us next!!March 1, 2021 at 7:11 am #1204073407
The Viola stans are loving this Carey Golden Globe loss. They’ve been out in droves since yesterday. But it’s not like this improves their fave chances any way.
There is no passion for Viola performance. Girl has lost every single award she’s been in contention.
The critics to Carey and McDormand.
And the Globe to newcomer first acting gig Andra Day.
You stay with Queen Viola’s name in a post like you’re on her payroll. What other awards has she lost besides the Golden Globe? Please tell me you’re not referring to these critics awards that didn’t even help the cemented front runner to victory here. You tried it though..March 1, 2021 at 5:22 am #1204073067
If you want to use that logic of giving her two nominations, then she’s not taking the Oscars at all, since her song, which should be easily shortlisted, wasn’t even shortlisted and Billie Holiday missed Costumes, Make Up and Score, which shows the lack of support.
And I agree with you, I was just joking about voting last minute. A guy from Next Best Picture told a couple weeks ago that HFPA loved Billie Holiday, so the signs were there. We just didn’t want to believe.
They loved but only gave it one nomination? LolFebruary 28, 2021 at 8:11 pm #1204070863
When having a lot of nominations at an awards show goes awry…February 25, 2021 at 9:31 am #1204060973
Why is cruz getting the heat when Thatcher has been calling Viola grillz since the dawn of time
“It” would get it too, I just happened to see that their post. The same message applies to whomever if they’re using other actresses names, but then use a certain part of their characters look to reference them. We know what it is, and no need to defend unnecessarily.February 25, 2021 at 8:28 am #1204060800
Keep showing this love guilds for Ma Rainey!February 25, 2021 at 8:25 am #1204060792
I think Carey Mulligan is winning with Viola a possibility as well. There is no chance of Kirby winning.
It’s actually Mulligan or Frances. Grillz is not happening, and if she does Netflix probably paid them or something because gurl only has momentum on GoldDerby.
You lost all credibility and showed your true self by referring to Carey and Frances by their names, but referring to Viola as Grillz. Ignorance is real around these parts.February 24, 2021 at 9:24 am #1204058801
What will be interesting to see is if an Oscar frontrunner for the win is snubbed at BAFTA. I think Mulligan and Davis are quite safe there and I think Boseman and Hopkins, Youn and Kaluuya are also quite safe but what if Close or Seyfried win the Globe and are snubbed at BAFTA by the jury? Or Sacha Baron Cohen?
Whilst the acting jury is choosing the six acting nominees in each category at BAFTA, the general membership is still voting on the winners so it will be interesting to see confirmation as to who might be second or in a chance with spoiling at the Oscars.
This is such a great point you raise wolfali. Especially, considering they have six slots. You my boo you just don’t know it yet. Lol
