Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck didn’t campaignApril 30, 2021 at 8:42 am #1204236137
All Mickey Rourke had to do was not drop 90,000 f bombs in his golden globes and bafta speeches and he would’ve won lolApril 30, 2021 at 7:01 am #1204235992
Roberto Benigni, Jean Dujardin, and now Rami Malek has joined the prestigious clubApril 29, 2021 at 8:40 am #1204234794
People voting Mahershala Ali, what on earth are you on about???
He’s done, he’s been lucky that he won two for “just fine” performances and he was certainly helped by the BP frontrunner status of those movies.
There’s no way he’ll ever win a third one, he’ll be very lucky if he ever gets nominated again.
Christian Bale and Joaquin Phoenix are other guys with 1 that could have a chance down the road
Washington is on his way of becoming a legendary actor, so he’s probably the only one in this list with an actual and realistic chance of snagging a third one.
Now that Ali has 2 oscars, he’ll get snubbed down the line for much better work just like Tom Hanks was. and I don’t think he’s even on Hank’s or Denzel’s level tbh. He’s another Christoph Waltz. Leo is still in his 40s and gets great roles with great directors, other then Denzel I think he would have the best chanceApril 28, 2021 at 3:38 pm #1204233992
Since BAFTA is jury committee for nominations he should benefit for a first nod with them.
Macbeth is his best chance. It’s a role and subject matter bafta voters will love. So if he doesn’t get a nomination this time it’s never happening lolApril 28, 2021 at 1:52 pm #1204233862
Denzel’s gonna have a tough time getting a 3rd. Especially with how important BAFTA has gotten lol. It’s have to be absolutely undeniable performance and not just based on narrative or historyApril 27, 2021 at 2:02 pm #1204232146
Only one category was thought to be such a sure bet they broke decades of tradition to schedule around it. There’s your answerApril 27, 2021 at 11:05 am #1204231755
Pretty much everyone predicting so far is predicting Denzel to be nominated, so I wouldn’t say he’s being ignored.
This. The academy loves nominating him and he has 2 wins. But I don’t think there’s any rush or want to give him a 3rd Oscar much like Tom Hanks. It would have to be a DDL in Lincoln or Joaquin in Joker kind of roleApril 27, 2021 at 9:35 am #1204231470
Come on, it was The Bounty (1984), Hopkins was 47, Day-Lewis was only 26 years old ( which, funny enough, was the same age DiCaprio had when he had to act alongside him in Gangs of New York).
It’s interesting that people use this as a means to bash Leo but make excuses for DDL lolApril 26, 2021 at 6:16 pm #1204230528
Anthony Hopkins because he’s done an entire different assortment of movies. DDL specifically only does Oscar baity and showy roles every few years, and I can’t stand that. DDL in Gangs of New York is one of my all time favorites thoughApril 26, 2021 at 5:05 pm #1204230436
I’ve got tea about Glenn Close.
This is from a friend. ” I’ve met plenty over the years at FYC events and she’s pissed off A LOT of people. In 2019, I was at FYC screening of “1917” and four voters we were talking to us, who all had worked with her, said there is no way in hell “we will ever vote for her.” It’s a huge reason why Mickey Rourke did not win for “The Wrestler.” If you “play the game,“ you have a chance. That’s a reason why Michael Keaton is not a best actor winner for Birdman ”
Apparently, how you treat people in hollywood is remembered. Damn, I really thought she’s a good person.
A lot of Hollywood celebrities are divas and think they’re above us plebes. That’s why I support who I like for their work and not who they are off screenApril 26, 2021 at 12:18 pm #1204229758
NO. Asian and Latin people have their own social problems. You think that only Black people had to endure racial injustice in the world? Newsflash Indians, Asians, Middle easterners also faced injustice in colonial era. You come across as entitled. You expect International block to just vote for Black actors so that count of black winners can go up and not because of actual performance? Just because America’s oppressive history? White American voters will think this way. International voters won’t.
This is what I am trying to say.
This. Plus the past two years we’ve had Asians win best director, one of them female, and both’s films won best picture. We also had an Asian female win supporting actress. But apparently diversity only matters if it’s for black people? What about Asians and Hispanics who are much less represented? Regardless, this was one of the most “diverse” set of winners and nominees we’ve had and people are still complainingApril 26, 2021 at 11:50 am #1204229678
Mahershala Ali has won twice the last few years, Viola Davis has won, Daniel Kaluuya has won, Regina King has won, but not every single win was a black person so now the academy is racist 🙄. Not every category is gonna go your way every year lol. And ironically by pushing for changing of the voters in the academy, the academy now has much more international flair and don’t gaf about political motives or backlash. Sometimes change just to change can back fire but this is what you wanted lolApril 26, 2021 at 11:44 am #1204229657
3 black winners in 93 years in the Best Actor and Actress category. And they only occasionally like to nominate folks in those categories to begin with. Angela Bassett only has one nomination to her name. Same story, different year.
They liked other performances better
