Emily Blunt is consistent and always delivers. It would be a shame if she was left out in the cold next Tuesday. She deserves the recognition. But something tells me she is not safe for either category.January 16, 2019 at 9:43 am #1202736344
You take into account those exact factors when you drag her through the mud. You’re tired, girl. Close your ACER laptop and go outside for some fresh air.January 16, 2019 at 7:22 am #1202736186
Time for a change. I hope they make this no host idea a new tradition.January 16, 2019 at 6:35 am #1202736144
The songs that Gaga wrote for her character and performs as said character absolutely lend themselves to her performance as a whole. It is almost comical to assume otherwise.
Let’s get serious, folks. Had Glenn’s movie been long forgotten, which many thought it would be, Gaga would be winning in a televised awards landslide. If Emma Stone could do it, so could Gaga.January 16, 2019 at 5:09 am #1202736094
Between the Sure Jan-ing and having more excuses than a dead beat dad in court as to why ASIB caught lightning, this thread is really…extra.January 15, 2019 at 6:41 pm #1202735787
No, no. The film would be based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that Glenn has starred in more than once. Not a remake of the original film.January 15, 2019 at 5:37 pm #1202735764
Sunset Boulevard is not happening. The budget would be astronomical in comparison to the box office potential. The stage musical barely works, the score is mediocre, and Glenn would need to tone her performance waaaayyy down to avoid looking totally unwell in front of a camera. The musical only won Best Musical because there were only two productions nominated, so it took the prize nearly by default. It was even debated whether or not there would be a Best Musical category that year at the Tony Awards. I’m all for passion projects, but SB would flop.

SAG is between Close and Gaga. Had The Favourite made it into Ensemble, I’d say Olivia had a shot. I’ve only talked to Gaga (and two Close) voters over the last few weeks. And yes, the voting body for SAG-AFTRA is robust, but in the last few years, the voters I’ve heard from were all over the place in Female Lead. This is the first time that I can recall where everyone I’ve talked to picked one of two candidates.

I’m not hostile to the idea of her being nominated though. I just think she had two obstacles stacked against her, the SAG and BAFTA exclusion, so Oscar following that pattern would not be unheard of.January 15, 2019 at 11:36 am #1202735377
Oh for cryin’ out loud, the Marcia Gay Harden story was nearly two decades ago. And the most recent example, Christoph Waltz, was due to category confusion at SAG.
I wouldn’t be surprised if King is left out next week.January 14, 2019 at 12:09 pm #1202734026
The thing is, I do not see Roma taking Foreign Language Film AND Best Picture. Why both? I think it easily takes FLF, and BP goes to ASIB.January 14, 2019 at 11:11 am #1202733962
