Colman has the least amount of screen time of the three. I’m fine with Rachel in supporting. Stone is the true lead.
actually Rachel has the least amount of screen time, then Colman, then Emma with the most.
I don’t see anyone from The Favourite getting snubbed. it’s too strong of a film that will have the most or second most number of nominations on tuesday.
I am veryyy curious to see what happens with Beale Street, I have a feeling it’s going to underperform and miss Best Picture, I hope that doesn’t hurt Regina’s chances at a nom. I think First Man is going to over perform, which is why i’m predicting Claire Foy getting nominated, but at this point who knows.
there definitely will be surprises with the nominations, there always is, and we’ll find out soon!January 15, 2019 at 10:17 pm #1202735908
I have a feeling First Man is squeezing in. getting these tech wins recently, it could do it.January 15, 2019 at 8:26 pm #1202735857
From the article:
if other industry favorites playing in the background of this mess were to find better traction in the race, such as “Black Panther,” “Crazy Rich Asians” or “A Quiet Place,” wouldn’t they be more loudly dismissed as mere populist entertainment?
Only “The Favourite” has managed to keep its nose clean. Perhaps the statute of limitations has expired on the possible sins of an 18th century-set romp about Queen Anne’s court.“
here I thought after seeing The Favourite back in November that it would never win Best Picture because of how divided I thought audiences would be about it … wow.
it’s insane that so many movies have been caught up in controversy (warranted or not). This is a crazy year.
honestly if you go by how many critic wins totals. The race right now is between Roma vs The Favourite.
besides that article stating issues with Roma, it also has a Netflix and foreign language strikes against it winning BP.
so really The Favourite should be the one in main contention and will get the most #2-3 votes I think of any movie, and could potentially win (I would be shocked if it did though.) It has three women at the center going against it. Somehow it’s rare for people to vote on a movie with women leads.
also, I don’t think a lot of people know bc it’s set in the 18th century but The Favourite is mostly true (besides the dialogue actually spoken and the extent of the relationships with the Queen) but the main story arc of Lady Sarah and Abigail and even The Queen were true.
It’s really interesting bc like in that article the other Big Budget movies A Quiet Place, Black Panther, and Crazy Rich Asians seem to have no BP support at all. which I thought at least Black Panther would.
I think if Get Out came out this year it would win in a landslide. but it didn’t so now we are all puzzled on what in the world is going to win.January 15, 2019 at 3:25 pm #1202735647
So I just watched Wildlife… Can we talk about how Carey Mulligan has been utterly cheated this awards season?
YUP. everyone tried promoting the hell out of it, i’m so sad the whole movie in general got ignored. one of my favorites of the year.
Carey really should be in the conversation.January 15, 2019 at 12:22 am #1202734724
You think 1994 was a long time ago! For the achievements of 1938 – Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis & Walter Brennan all won their 2nd Oscar’s with Fay Bainter being the only first time winner. Of course Brennan would later win a third.
wow!!! another one. well I guess it’s more common than I thought.
both years great lineups of winners to have that kind of achievement.January 14, 2019 at 11:39 pm #1202734696
Is this why they have my girl Nicole presenting left and right? Queen is tired! I even saw her waiting some tables at the Globes. Let her rest, AMPAS.
lol pretty sure that’s just Nicole trying her hardest to promote Boy Erased, Destroyer, and Aquaman. she’s been at every single event you can go to and then some.
this is so crazy.January 14, 2019 at 11:33 pm #1202734693
What I do hate about the Oscars is how integral timing and campaigning have to be, to be noticed for awards season. Poor actresses like Naomi Watts will probably never get near to an Oscar nomination with the current system. Lol
who do you guys think is taking BAFTA? I have doubts that Colman will truly sweep.
this whole season is so insane, anything could happen. I would assume Colman would win BAFTA she has won 3 times there but the last time was in 2014, so it was a while ago. but if Close is that strong like she seems to be she could win it. I don’t see Gaga winning BAFTA.

1994 Hanks Lange and Wiest won their second Oscars while a veteran who was also overdue won his first, Martin Landau.
didn’t know that.. wow! that’s really cool. long time ago but that’s awesome for them. will have to go back and look at that now.
again.. pretty sure that’s not going to happen but always fun to throw any kind of scenarios out there.

can you imagine though if Bale, Ali, and Weisz all win not just at SAG but at the Oscars?! that will be three previous Oscar winners all winning their second Oscars in the same night. then having Glenn Close (a veteran actress) winning for the first time.
that would be a record breaking night.
(highlyyy doubt that would ever happen… Oscars like to throw a wrench in things like that)

^ that’s so weird actually sharing the picture. i’ve seen a few people tweeting who they are voting for but an actual picture.. is that allowed? lol … also interesting bc i’m sure the persons voting is being influenced by other people voting too.
WEISZ!!!!January 14, 2019 at 12:58 pm #1202734086
if you look at this (GREAT list) of every critic wins this year, the Oscar Race really should be between Roma + The Favourite.
agree above that Roma being a Netflix film on top of a foreign language film should automatically make you think it could never win. but if any film is the exception, I think Roma can do it.
of course Alfonso is beloved, but his film really is a masterpiece I mean look at Guillermo Del Toro’s tweet today (well only look if you’ve seen the film, there are spoilers) it’s a cinematic masterpiece that would be a worthy Best Picture winner.January 13, 2019 at 8:07 pm #1202733107
Do you guys think BFCA really put a nail on the coffin of Colman’s Oscar chances or does this seriously not matter?
no not at all. She is very much in the running, she did win tonight – yes for Comedy Actress but this is two wins in a row, and most likely to win BAFTA. so not over. I still think Glenn Close will win SAG then losing BAFTA but still win the Oscar, but this is a Critic’s show, the Critic’s loved A Star is Born. so Gaga got a win.January 13, 2019 at 7:34 pm #1202733024
I wouldn’t be surprised if Emma is filming somewhere as well or taking a break before filming. She’s a sought-after Hollywood ingenue. BTW, I didn’t know she was announced as the new Cruella De Vil.
yeah she is! never would have thought of her for that role. she probably is filming something lol or everyone is just taking a break until SAG’s.January 13, 2019 at 7:28 pm #1202733010
uhmm why did absolutely nobody from The Favourite attend? There’s sumn fishy
Olivia is filming The Crown, and Rachel has a 4 month old so probably thought going for Critics Choice wasn’t worth it (since it’s not Oscar voters).. no clue where Emma is! surprised she, Joe Alwyn, Nicholas Hoult or Yorgos didn’t show up either.
