Come through, Chad! I’ve got faith in his lead campaign. He looked phenomenal in the trailer. Sorry, Sir Anthony!October 21, 2020 at 12:23 am #1203792940
Watch how everyone flips out when Jennifer Hudson gets nominated lol.October 17, 2020 at 10:32 pm #1203785436
Some say Berry Gordy’s over campaigning for Diana Ross cost her the Oscar for Lady Sings the Blues. Even eventual winner Liza Minnelli confessed that she thought that Diana was going to win for her powerhouse performance.
Their co-nominee Cicely Tyson would have likely won in supporting had she been nominated there instead.October 17, 2020 at 4:13 pm #1203784891
I think Chad winning isn’t as much of a problem for Viola than it would be if Jennifer Hudson and/or Audra Day get nominated alongside her. Multiple musical dramas of iconic black singers? That’s an unheard of scenario and it might be hard to single one of the ladies out, leaving a dark horse contender to surprise. I’m not sold on a McDormand 3-peat just yet either.October 15, 2020 at 8:52 pm #1203781591
They should just engrave Chad’s name now.October 10, 2020 at 6:28 pm #1203770546
Any submissions for her this year?October 10, 2020 at 5:57 pm #1203770509
They had to have meant Blue Jasmine lol.October 7, 2020 at 12:28 am #1203764757
I hope Megan wins, but are they going to give the award to a female rapper for the first time?
Technically Lauryn Hill was the first.
We’re overdue for another R&B singer win though. I think the last female was Alicia Keys in ‘02. Male was John Legend in ‘06.
No one’s predicting BTS?October 5, 2020 at 10:46 pm #1203762726
I also can’t see SPC bumping Colman up to lead when they have Pfeiffer this year. They’ve got a good chance to score lead wins with vets Hopkins and Pfeiffer, especially with the former. Ironically, the latter turned down the iconic role of Clarice Starling in the SOTL.October 5, 2020 at 5:51 pm #1203762400
I’m pretty confident that neither Colman, Kirby, or Winslet is winning Best Actress this year.October 1, 2020 at 11:49 pm #1203751722
How is Kaluuya being overestimated, did you watch the trailer? And he has Shaka King who is a first time director for a big feature such as this, which does set in some doubts, but look at Jenkins, Peele, Gerwig, Chazelle and what they did. Don’t discredit Shaka…
‘Judas’ keeps getting mislabeled as King’s second film for some reason. His first is Newlyweeds (2013).October 1, 2020 at 8:17 pm #1203750789
You seem to be missing the point. Hudson’s career doesn’t warrant a second Oscar. It doesn’t even warrant a second nomination lol. You could try comparing her to whoever you want, but there is no precedent for anyone of her stature in the film industry and her filmography, winning a second Oscar.
Just say you’re a stan and move on lol because there’s no logical argument for her winning unless she and the film are absolutely raved which isn’t going to happen, since it’s already test screened and that wasn’t the reception.
First of all, who said I was a stan lol? You’ve assumed incorrectly. Precedents are broken all of the time with Oscar. And last time I checked, actors nominate the performance and not the career. Unless you’re a voter, it doesn’t matter if YOU don’t think she warrants a second nomination. She can absolutley make the final lineup if enough actual voters feel otherwise.October 1, 2020 at 7:49 pm #1203750634
You keep comparing Bullock to Hudson as if they are even remotely in the same league lol. One is capable of giving a performance like that in Gravity and one is not. One is also a lot more respected in Hollywood.
Completely missing my point, but ok.
