Mahershala Ali is the luckiest son of a bitch on the planet, striking gold in the 2016 and 2018 categories with such weak competition. While Mahershala Ali is on his way to his second Oscar in 3 years, Glenn Close and Amy Adams are struggling to win their firsts.January 13, 2019 at 8:13 pm #1202733116
Wow I suddenly feel so famousJanuary 13, 2019 at 5:23 pm #1202732357
Y’all Critics Choice are the worst. Their sole existence on this Earth is to rubber stamp the Globes and the Emmys and to try to predict the Oscars. That’s why Ali, King, Newton, Winkler, Borstein, Whishaw, and Clarkson have all just won Critics Choice Awards. All of them are recent Globes and/or Emmy winners. I can’t.January 13, 2019 at 5:20 pm #1202732341
I actually don’t think Adams will win SAG and I feel very certain she won’t win BAFTA. We will all have to be patient and wait and see what happens. I am predicting Emily Blunt for SAG and either Margot Robbie or Rachel Weisz for BAFTA.
I’m sure you don’t.January 13, 2019 at 8:05 am #1202731597
strike Brie Larson off that equation of winning based on performance alone. Please. She did nothing award worthy in Room. Even little Jacob out performed her. She won because of the hype, the it factor and the fact that Room had to win something.
I’m sorry but you are just incorrect.January 13, 2019 at 5:17 am #1202731491
For the last 2 years the Globe nominees have matched the Oscars by the following pattern:
3 of the Drama nominees (including winner)
2 of the Comedy/Musical nominees (including the winner)
This bodes well for a surprise nominee from the Comedy/Musical category! Otherwise the category will be heavily balanced in favour of the Drama field…by 4 to 1. Fingers crossed for diversity
Unless you think Nicole Kidman or Rosamund Pike are getting nominated…January 10, 2019 at 4:27 pm #1202729376
Adams will probably split votes with Patricia Clarkson. Not that many, but enough with Patricia Arquette as such stiff competition.January 10, 2019 at 3:58 pm #1202729341
I am not on board with using BIFA as a basis for predicting Rachel Weisz. I mean, of course she was going to win there over Emma. She was also nominated in Lead and there were only British films nominated (among which The Favourite swept) . That doesn’t mean that there won’t be serious vote splitting at BAFTA, where Hollywood movies are nominated. I think whoever wins SAG is going to be able to take advantage of the likelihood of a vote split.January 10, 2019 at 3:11 am #1202728551
I just put Elsie Fisher in my 5th spot as an NGNG pick. It’s not like whoever gets that spot will end up beating Close, Gaga and Colman anyway. I might be crazy but anyone else feeling like Eighth Grade will get in there and/or Screenplay?
One or the other maybe, most likely Screenplay.January 9, 2019 at 9:27 pm #1202728410
Robbie > The Favourite Ladies
Oh and I really wish Saoirse Ronan was in the conversation for this performance. She was fantastic.January 9, 2019 at 9:09 pm #1202728390
I have no idea how this plays into this years race. I will say that unless she can establish herself as a full-force leading lady in the next few years I think her Oscar win will be for a supporting performance.
Either way, this was something that I noticed that I wanted to share. Let me know what people think 🙂January 9, 2019 at 8:18 pm #1202728345
At the end of the day, she isn’t underrated. She gets a lot of work and acclaim and although she hasn’t broke through with awards like some want her to, she will eventually and either way she has a career most could never dream of having. She’ll be fine.January 9, 2019 at 8:15 pm #1202728343
Y’all Gaga haters are becoming more desperate than you were before. I didn’t think it was possible.January 9, 2019 at 8:13 pm #1202728341
If I was being safe I would still predict Emily Blunt. People love her and want to see her get nominated, and even thought she could possibly split votes between MPR and AQP, all of her awards season profiles and interviews have been emphasizing Mary Poppins. The SAG love shows that she has support from the industry and although BAFTA did her dirty today I still think she will make it in.
