She has a chance, but will need a REALLY strong performance. The supporting race is already heating up, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see her nominated if she pulls it off.
I hope so because I love the Dame so much. Such an acting legend. It just makes me sad that she wasn’t so prominent in the Downton Abbey trailer.

I can’t see any more mentions of Dame Maggie Smith in supporting actress for Dowton Abbey. Is it that she no longer has a chance?
I really want her nominated because she needs one more nomination at least before she passes out. She was snubbed for The Lady in the Van and especially, The best exotic Marigold Hotel.

Let’s hope 2019 will be a weak year and Leonardo will win his overdue 2nd Oscar for Once upon a time in Hollywood. We will have to wait until Venice in September, Cannes almost always flops.
I hope not. I love Leonardo DiCaprio and I believe he’s one of the best actors alive. But honestly, I’ve seen the trailer for Once upon a time in Hollywood and Leo looks very much like he’s playing Leo for the 80th time. It looks like Titanic (with comic elements), the great Gatsby Django Unchained and especially The wolf of Wall Street. Even Pitt appeared more challenged

I saw Rocketman last week. Taron Egarton should better get that Oscar nomination and a golden globe comdey/musical win. He was amazing

After seeing that Judy trailer, I’ll say that Renee Zellweger is the only lock at the moment. But I’m hoping that Cynthia Erivo and Afre Woodard makes it in.

I hate this category. The last two winners didn’t deserve to win and there are a lot of category frauds all the time.
Allison Janney was great in her role and was by farrrrrrrrr the best nominee that year. As for Regina King, some precursors knew she did nothing to warrant a nomination let alone win

Just my opinion, but I hated 2015! It was just category fraud after category fraud with filler nominees and hardly any aspired choices.. Alicia was a co-lead and should have been nominated for Ex Machina instead, Rooney Mara was a co-lead and very vocal about it and Rachel McAdams was just a boring coattail filler.. Only Kate and Jennifer warranted a nom here while Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda, Julie Walters, Mya Taylor, Kristen Stewart, Cynthia Nixon and Joan Allen were all overlooked
I totally agree with you. Madams had no business being in that line up and the category frauds were just too much to handle

A Star Is born was his major shot at best actor but he campaigned heavily for best director….ignoring best actor entirely. The HFPA decided to give everything to Bohemian Rhapsody so as not to seem predictable and we know how these awards love to copy themselves.
I’ll call it horrible luck

Gaga had never lead a movie before and had already won a globe for American Horror Story by the time A Star Is Born started. Those who made fun of her were just haters while Adam Sandler has been mediocre his whole career.Not a fair comparisson.
I agree but if Sandler is been raved about, GG or even SAG might go his way. I’m not betting my life on it but I won’t be surprised if it happens

Lady Gaga and Adam Sandler aren’t even comparable. She was mocked because she only had one role prior to ASIB and she was primarily a singer. He’s mocked because he’s a mediocre actor with nothing but Razzie nominations for his entire career and no serious industry support. When he does go dramatic and people like his performance, it goes nowhere and the film flops. And if any early predictions on IndieWire or Variety actually count, then Emily Blunt would have 10 nominations and Nicole Kidman would’ve won for The Beguiled.
okay. Can I compare Sandler to Jennifer Aniston? Jen was considered mediocre before cake. If Adams does anything serious this time, he’ll get raves and maybe get nominated somewhere

Title appears ready awful but I love Jennifer Lawrence. Overrated at some point but she has proven her worth now. The girl is good

Sweeties, according to my sources, Adams delivers in TWITW, she’s a threat unless she gets Arrival’d. As of Bridget, her performance never comes to full bloom, she ain’t winning.
it will still be same bland facial expressions and unfelt screen presence. This woman is hugely overrated please. She cottailed her way to many nominations for being in Oscar bait ensemble films and got people thinking she’s all that. She couldn’t do it on her own with Arrival (A very weak performance that was overblown. Nothing award worthy about it). The only nominations she deserved were Junebug and The Master. Every other nomination of hers is just super offensive. I know you all will jump to disagree but it’s the truth

So I come here to enjoy a good reading of Goldderby and I have to go through a whole page dedicated to Adam Sandler winning an Oscar? I should have watched a movie or something instead.
in this age and time, everything is possible, even the impossible. This was how Gaga was mocked before July last year. Everyone expected her to be a disaster but we saw how it all ended.
If Sandler gives a great performance and the movie turns out good, he might get a nomination. In fact I’d say he needs to give just a serviceable performance and let the critics do the rest of the pushing. They’ll praise him so much since they never expected something that good from him. The narrative would come into play. Crappy actor gone serious. He has huge followership too. Mind you, Sandler isn’t a shitty actor like we put it, he’s just okay but has a very crappy filmography. I’m not saying he’ll get a nomination or win but I won’t be surprised if he gets it. It’s very much possible
