Glenn’s Globes and SAG all came from TV up until The Wife, it’s different.
Zellweger was a three times Globe and SAG winner already before winning this year, and she won SAG leading and supporting one next to the other for Chicago and Cold Mountain, Glenn can do it.October 27, 2020 at 6:46 pm #1203806748
The Artist won in a year where it’s biggest competition was Hugo, of course it wouldn’t win now, but that year we can say the competition was not strong and it had an easy road.
Argo on the other hand…October 27, 2020 at 4:51 pm #1203806451
Best Actor this year reminds me of Best Actress in 2019…
And I don’t want to say it, but I think with how aggressively contested Boseman V Hopkins is, there might quietly be a third option that wins, just like Coleman over Close and Gaga.
The thing is #3 seems to be Gary Oldman, and i don’t think he’s winning Oscar #2.
Unless Delroy Lindo comes through as the Olivia Colman… Now that would be beautiful.October 27, 2020 at 3:41 pm #1203806314
Honestly… I completely agree with you. I feel like his performance will be raved to the heavens simply because of his passing. I think if he was still alive then this would be Hopkins’ Oscar – signed, sealed and delivered. No questions.
Exactly, i did find him good in the trailer and of course they showed a lot of him, but until i see the full performance i’m not going to find him worthy of the Best Leading Actor Oscar. If we talk about raves then that’s what Hopkins got, the man won an Oscar for a 15 minutes performance that is often praised as one of the best ever and 30 years later the reviews say career best performance??? To me THAT is a rave.October 27, 2020 at 3:25 pm #1203806290
Without having seen Hopkins or Boseman’s performances i can say that i don’t want the latter to win. Maybe when i see both movies i might change my mind.
Chadwick never had a single role of his gain Oscar buzz, and no, there was no buzz or possibility of him getting nominated for Black Panther, so i don’t see why he HAS to win an Oscar now, just because he died?
I remember he got quite predicted for Get On Up a few years ago, and he wasn’t nominated at even the smallest critics awards, so now acting like he needs to win this award when he didn’t even had the roles to do it when alive sounds quite crazy to me.
He was on his path to greatness for sure, but if we talk about the Oscars he never came even close to one and now i don’t see a reason to give him one, if his performance is the best i have ever seen then give it to him because he deserves it.October 27, 2020 at 3:15 pm #1203806270
YOU OUGT TO BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!
Wanting another old WHITE man to win a 2ND Oscar when a talented black KING who prematurely left us is giving a very deserving performance. That man fought cancer for over FOUR YEARS while filming those movies yet you’re that selfish to not acknowledge his career. Sounds about RACIST!
Honey, go to bed, you’re reaching baaaaaaaaadly.October 24, 2020 at 3:04 pm #1203800544
Didn’t knew the song from Onward was written by Brandi Carlile, i’m going to predict it for sure now.October 22, 2020 at 12:54 pm #1203796841
I haven’t seen The Trial of the Chicago 7, but could Sacha Baron Cohen win if he went supporting? He has a comedian-going-dramatic narrative, and Abbie Hoffman is the most famous character. Most importantly, he is about to everywhere this season with the new Borat movie.
He was my favorite in the movie, but he wouldn’t be a shoe in to win, he might snag SAG or Globe tho, he’s just not amazingly good, but he is pretty good.October 22, 2020 at 5:20 am #1203795862
What do you think will win?
Nomadland has a chance, we will have to see if it holds up through the award season.
What i want to see winning is Soul, it’s time for an animated film to win! Pixar has been deserving of the award soooo many times.October 21, 2020 at 7:10 pm #1203795455
I also feel like Mank won’t win Best Picture because lately it has gone to more social/passionate/ films, this seems like more of a La La Land.
In fact, i’m going to say that i’m sure it won’t win, it will definitely win other awards and might be the biggest winner of the night, but not Best Picture. This screams Roma, 1917, La La Land to me.October 21, 2020 at 11:52 am #1203794053
I really need nominations to come out, i feel so confused. Netflix has a big advantage this year by being the main distributor in a Covid world, but now it has TOO MANY contenders.
It could have four nominations in Best Actress, someone has to fall in my opinion and the one that looks more possible is Amy Adams, followed by Sophia Loren. To me Kirby and Viola are almost locks.October 20, 2020 at 2:34 pm #1203792008
They shoulda just let her win when she had a chance. They did her so wrong last year. They gave her all these awards and honors (not just precursor awards either), and in the end it was all for nothing. The Modern Master Award, The Spotlight Award, The Icon Award, Museum of Moving Image honor, etc etc. And it was all for nothing. Just like last year nobody expected a pandemic to break out this year, people should never take an opportunity for granted.
And I agree with that, but it was all a set up and we should have known, she did have a great performance, but it just wasn’t the right role or movie to win, everyone gave her the awards because she is Glenn Close, and at the end she lost to a stronger performance in a stronger movie.
She seems to have the biggest chance next year with a role that is transformative, with a well known director, in a Netflix movie, that also looks really baity and there is basically no competition in the category, and she also does look tremendous in the trailer, so she might win even if everyone rewarded her already just last year.October 20, 2020 at 2:26 pm #1203791979
I surprisingly really liked this, it resonated a lot with me because i’m from Venezuela and i know the consequences of protesting.
Baron Cohen was my favorite, he had so much to do and gave a very diverse performance, it could had just been a hippie guy, but there was a lot of heart in that character. Mark Rylance was my second favorite, very consistent. Abdul-Mateen didn’t impress me to be honest, he does have a good scene and all, but it’s not like he was Lupita Nyong’o in 12 Years a Slave kind of winning scene.
If felt more crowd pleasing than i expected and that makes me think that general audiences may really like it, kind of like a Hidden Figures, The Help and other SAG Cast winners/nominees. The Globes will eat this up for sure.
