Yes, I know they’re in different categories, but I was referencing the original post where the person said, “I also don’t think that this new Academy is not going to honor at least one actor of color this year.” Thus, my reply which was that if this “new” academy wants to honor one person of color it would not be JLo, but rather good actresses like Lupita Nyong’o or Cynthia Erivo.
JLo being a bad actress is your opinion, not a fact. IMO Cynthia Erivo is the “bad” actress if we are talking about those 3.
If we make any distinction between the movie and the actor in it, that is. Unfortunately most people don’t.December 11, 2019 at 2:37 pm #1203232357
Meryl is not competition. Pugh was the one getting all the raves. If Pugh doesn’t get in then Meryl absolutely won’t either. (She still won’t get nominated regardless if Florence does get in).
I don’t think Meryl is in contention. But if Little Women is so weak as a contender as it seems, Pugh won’t happen anyway. The fact that she has Meryl Streep of all people as a scene partner, just makes her more weak. Meryl has fans that are going to watch Little Women and vote for her, so Pugh won’t have full support of people who watched it. A nomination for either is unrealistic.December 11, 2019 at 2:14 pm #1203232337
Nicole Kidman entering this race like a queen.
It’s funny, last season Globes nominated her and SAG snubbed her, now it was the opposite.
But since these days the Globes seem to have more influence on voters than SAG(which is a joke, btw), she’s probably being left out again.December 11, 2019 at 2:08 pm #1203232320
But why though?
Well, if she gets a BAFTA nomination, it could happen. But I don’t think she’s getting nominated anywhere, and even if she gets a BAFTA nom, I’m not sure that would lead her to an Oscar nomination. Besides, what’s the point? She doesn’t attend, she doesn’t need the recognition, the movie itself isn’t an Oscar player, she won’t campaign, etc. Kathy Bates or Bening are more likely to take an open spot after they got Globe nominations. Or even Kidman as a coattail if Bombshell overperforms at the Oscars just like it did at SAG.December 11, 2019 at 2:04 pm #1203232312
Pugh IS NOT happening. Get over it.
1) No one is giving two shits about Little Women
2) She has strong competition in her own movie(Meryl)
3) Critics are rallying behind Laura Dern just like they did last year with Regina King, and Pugh needed critics support because she’s too young to get in on merit alone. We know how the Academy works.
4) If someone from Little Women gets a nomination, it’s Saoirse Ronan in Lead, and that’s probably not happening either because they’re probably not going to snub a black woman(Erivo or Lupita) to replace her with a white one. Not after “Oscars so white” controversy. If Erivo is left out(let’s hope so), it’s for Awkwafina, not Ronan.
Thomasin McKenzie isn’t happening either for similar reasons, just like she didn’t last year. Move on.November 27, 2019 at 7:31 pm #1203206623
Billie is obviously winning this because if she loses AOTY, this will be her reward along with BNA, which she might lose to Lizzo(although I doubt that happens since Dua Lipa and Alessia Cara won).
They won’t leave the best selling album of the year go home without a Grammy(I know, it happens, but not when you’re a promising new star, only when you’re around for years and there’s fatigue or a very specific reason) and the Engineered Album nomination seals the deal: there is enough support to be competitive for AOTY, which means she’s winning her genre category. Simple like that. If Ariana hadn’t won for Sweetener and was promoting the album longer than she actually did, she could beat Billie, but now there’s no hype.November 27, 2019 at 7:03 pm #1203206589
Kendrick should’ve won for DAMN(acclaim, sales, hits) and TPAB(too much acclaim to lose).
In GKMC he had no chance because he only had acclaim and was too underground.
DAMN’s loss is even worse than TPAB because although most people think TPAB is the better album, he had way too much competition that time. But losing to 24k Magic was a joke.November 27, 2019 at 6:44 pm #1203206579
Why would R&b panel “make” Beyonce win when in year prior and year after she was snubbed??
Was she snubbed in 2018? How?
Do you mean in 2017? Probably because they wanted Rihanna(another huge popstar) to win R&B Song and R&B Performance(which didn’t work because she lost both categories)?
Now they didn’t nominate Homecoming because they obviously want Lizzo to sweep the field. If Janelle had huge numbers, they probably would’ve snubbed EIL or at least nominated Dirty Computer across the field this year.November 27, 2019 at 6:19 pm #1203206557
The Beyoncé and Jay-Z joint album is literally a mess and the fact that they forced a category to make them win, when they have 20 Grammys already and didn’t really deserve a nomination, is such a shame. Specially considering that Janelle has 0 Grammys and was screwed over in favor of them.
I really doubt Janelle or Lana is ever winning a Grammy.November 27, 2019 at 9:56 am #1203205985
I’m giving Billie’s album another listen to see if you guys have become insane for supporting it or not… And OMG, it sucks!
Eyelash better thank God Grammy voters don’t even listen to the albums before voting.November 26, 2019 at 4:34 pm #1203204916
I’m not saying Cooper’s my personal winner. I’m saying that I’d have chose him over Bale and he was probably second place that year. Viggo’s still my winner. I don’t like knowing that Green Book pulled off all those wins but couldn’t get him one too.
Bale was because he won the Comedy GG. Sheep mentality works like that. Bradley was 3rd and Viggo 4th because although Green Book was the big winner, the campaign didn’t revolve around Viggo and his co-star was already winning.
Cooper’s performance was strong enough for a win but it’s like no one cared. The Director/Actor thing killed his chances since his directing job was nowhere near deserving of a win unlike Costner or Eastwood ASIB flopped everywhere anyway. “Too big to fail” they said
Cooper should’ve known better than giving Ally’s role to someone the media has been so eager to overpraise in the last few years. He became just a detail in HER Oscar campaign, when all that promotion was meant to give them both Oscars in the first place. IMO, he was the only one in that movie deserving of a nomination, but I wasn’t impressed by his performance, it felt a lil caricatural and not win worthy.November 23, 2019 at 8:22 am #1203198557
And she’s making an average of 1.3M per show in Vegas. She’s there cause she can’t tour at the moment due to body issues. Plus she went on tour for Joanne. If she didn’t do Enigma, she wouldn’t be touring anyway as she has no album to promote.
What body issues? The ones she invented to cancel Flopanne Tour, that couldn’t reach the 100M mark even though it was announced at the f**king Superbowl? She didn’t have any issues while she was promoting ASIB everywhere for 6 months.
And every single concert of her residency had tickets available until ASIB helped it to sell. She has been completely dependent on this movie for over one year now.November 23, 2019 at 8:18 am #1203198555
Girl there’s no denying Gaga brought in electro pop into the mainstream. Don’t be delusional please. Pre-The Fame that type of music would compete in the “Dance” categories lol. It changed right after The Fame. There was no pop star with electro elements in their music that was as successful as Gaga, ever. Also please don’t confuse 80s/90s Disco music with modern day electro music. You should know better.
Honey, you’re so delusional. Gaga didn’t brought anything into the mainstream, lots of hits in the 2000s had electro elements before she was even a songwriter. She just explored it the most because she/her team saw that it was becoming trendy.November 23, 2019 at 8:15 am #1203198549
How on earth does A Star Is Born not have longevity? Looking at the other female pop albums on the Billboard 200, only Billie is charting higher than Gaga was at the same point in time. WWAFAWDWG (33 weeks): #8 Cuz I Love You (30 weeks): #22 ASIB (30 weeks): #20 Thank You Next (40 weeks): #34 ASIB (40 weeks): #25 Diane Warren is one of the important writers for Why Did You Do That? so I don’t think it was already created for ARTPOP. And if you want to be the first to work with someone, you just want to be cool for working with the young new kid on the block. It’s not about that. She’ll release it when the time is right and she has a project that fits the track.
She most likely will never release that. Gaga is afraid of releasing real pop music since she flopped with ARTPOP. She keeps releasing AC music because of that.November 23, 2019 at 8:13 am #1203198543
I’m sorry I cannot stop laughing that you just put Lady Gaga in the same category with Paul McCartney and Fleetwood Mac. Art Pop flopped so hard that they needed to rebrand her as a country rock broadway singer and put her in a Hollywood movie to sell soundtracks to my mom’s generation. Lady Gaga is younger than Lana but Lana’s star keeps rising while Gaga is washed. Lana and Gaga used to hate each other when they both sang around the Brooklyn local scene, and Lana was pissed when Gaga got famous first. Now Lana is a way more respected artist than Gaga will ever be. Gaga is going to join the washed up stars club pretty soon and end up a judge on The Voice pretty and co judge with Avril Lavigne and Ke$ha.
LMAO, you are so right. I mean, she’s already in Vegas. Only she ended up there so early in her career.
