I’m curious to see how this thread goes but it’s clear preferential ballot have a voice in it and how less of “undeniable frontrunners” as King’s Speech and The Artist are happening right now since Affleck’s snub. La La Land was the closest to this one but they decided they got tired of these kind of films that year but went basic again the following ceremonies. And the films that matched picture and director since Argo weren’t expected to sweep. Boyhood and Three Billboard were the frontrunners but it showed the importance of guild support. Something that also benefited Green Book since the PGA. It is interesting how Best Picture and Best Director split reminds me to the two best picture categories in the first Oscar ceremony. Now, the first being a “best message/story” award and the second a “technical achievement” award (as pointed out in the OP). Argo/Life of Pi, 12 Years/Gravity, Moonlight/La La Land, Green Book/Roma fits that mold
you’ve spoken so well but there was no competition between Argo and Life of Pi. It was more like Argo vs Les Miserables. Of course, Les mis wasn’t a director think…..so Lincoln took over the director spot. Ang Lee was never a threat as Steven Spielberg took charge the moment Ben Affleck was snubbed. The real show down was Boyhood/Birdman

The Favourite. That costume drama was way beyond disappointment.
Rachel Weiz was great in it though

Meryl Streep nominated for Florence Foster jenkins & Into the Woods & Osage County & Julie and Julia. I can continue.
Meryl Streep actually deserved her nominations for these performances. Her only recent nomination that I still stand against is The Post. That was a waste of a spot that should have gone to many deserving women that year

Richard Jenkins – best supporting actor for The Shape of Water.
Octavia Spencer – best supporting actress for Hidden Figures

She might win supporting out of pity like many of us are thinking. She has no chance if she’s going for 2020 though. Afre Woodard and Erivo are already looking like sure things in best actress and I think the academy might feel like it’s due enough to get another black best actress winner. As for supporting actress, that category has a long list of potential contenders in bigger movies

I pray she doesn’t. There are better actresses around

Swan song by Dua Lipa sounds interesting

I can only explain 2019. Without Close in the race, Gaga would have won SAG easily. Close was in serious awards debt, all her peers already had 1-3 wins at SAG and Oscar. SAG felt pity for her and wanted to force the academy into awarding her but it didn’t work out because they probably dislike her. Gaga’s chances died after SAG. Globes and SAG would have been the easiest wins for Gaga but Close was long overdue.
Colman won because she was just coming off a fresh win and The Favourite couldn’t go empty handed

It was such a bad film. Simple and short

More recent ones: La La Land Dunkirk Vice The Shape of Water Black Panther Crazy Rich Asians Love Simon Bohemian Rhapsody Fences
Love, Simon is super underrated. It’s an offense to call it overrated. Maybe you should replace it with Three Billboards

I just want to say “I miss you guys”. We had such a nice time together. I wish the season never came to an end. I love you all

I loved her in Vox Lux. She was just unlucky to be overshadowed by the other contenders. I don’t like the movie though. It was so poor but Portman was great as usual
