Some people are saying that Michelle Pfeffier will gain major momentum for Sony Classic’s French Exit…May 22, 2020 at 3:06 pm #1203496008
if Zhao gets nominated, she’ll win. All Asians who were nominated won. Ang Lee for Brokeback and Life of Pi (he only didn’t for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Bong for Parasite.
That’s not a strong trend. And I highly doubt that an unknown director is going to pull off a win this year especially with no major festival hype to push him or her to the forefront like Joon-Ho. It’s wiser to bet on someone overdue.May 17, 2020 at 3:50 pm #1203486737
So, is Doja Cat really winning this?May 1, 2020 at 8:22 pm #1203458163
IIRC it was in response to a stacked Best Actress field that year.April 28, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203451817
Don’t see the point of even entertaining this.April 20, 2020 at 11:49 pm #1203438501
Carrie was actually released the previous year in ‘76.April 14, 2020 at 10:30 pm #1203427385
Weaver hands down, but I often wonder what would have happed had The Color Purple been released this year?April 14, 2020 at 12:49 am #1203425640
Melanie was actually my fav that year. Iirc, the LA Times predicted her. Woulda been cool if she pulled off a Judy Holliday type win lol.April 12, 2020 at 5:21 pm #1203423334
Killer lineup, but I’ll go with the actual winner Bancroft. Joan Crawford, who shoulda been nominated, most likely would have been pushed for supporting today.April 12, 2020 at 12:17 am #1203421835
Davis was the leading contender, which has accounted for most surprise wins in this category. Couple that with Weaver’s aggressive studio campaigning for GITM, and the villainess nature of her WG role, it’s understandable why Davis, whose studio made a last minute campaign switch for BSA, upset in retrospect.
I also heard that the role of Muriel in the feature adaptation of TAT was practically sought after by half of Hollywood. The fact that Davis won the role and pulled it off so well clearly earned her the respect of her peers.March 31, 2020 at 12:55 pm #1203403321
