Did Weisz leave a little after the supp. actress category? She was nowhere to be found when Olivia won.February 24, 2019 at 9:49 pm #1202792533
Just realized that 3 of the acting wins were for LGB roles (Colman, Malek and Ali) all on the same night! (:
Yeah, and overall, there were 7 LGBT roles nominated tonight (E. Grant, Weisz, Stone, McCarthy). I think it’s the most representative the Oscars have ever beenFebruary 24, 2019 at 9:45 pm #1202792512
This is the most misleading Oscar results ever. Does campaining still matter? Should we look only at the performances?
We have a winner who checked all the lists of campaining strategies but still didn’t get love from all the precursors. A winner that didn’t attend to anything, didn’t even campaign at all and won. We also have a charicature imitation winning best actor over better performances. Not to mention a double-winner in a two years spawn. What is the logic?????? Is there a logic????February 24, 2019 at 9:34 pm #1202792459
Oh, please. The Oscar is not pure math; sometimes, there will be shocks.
I’m glad Regina won, she worked hard for it.
If anything can be said about these Oscars, is that the precursors are not always right.February 24, 2019 at 9:24 pm #1202792408
I’m so torn. I’ve been raving Olivia’s performance since I’ve watched The Favourite for the first time, but Glenn’s first-second reaction to the loss is too devastating.February 24, 2019 at 9:12 pm #1202792311
So weird that Rachel Weisz wasn’t anywhere to be seen when Olivia won. What happened there?February 24, 2019 at 3:15 pm #1202788341
I’m so happy with myself; Ive watched 43 of the 52 nominated movies, and completed 17 categories (Mary poppins screwed me over).February 23, 2019 at 5:47 pm #1202786870
On Sasha Stone’s website The Favourite came up second on a simulated preferential ballot, roughly 800 voters involved. Sasha is the most passionate hater of the movie in the whole internet and still her readers went for it. Because it’s unstoppable. It’s The Favourite for Best Picture.
I ran a simulation of a preferential ballot using brazillians and goldderby users, it had almost 450 votes. Roma ended up with 260 of those, and The Favourite came in second, with 179.February 20, 2019 at 8:00 pm #1202783355
is always like this, isn’t? she never campaign too hard
She never really goes for it the way King is doing, but since American Hustle there’s been the usual “So Overdue” trajetory going on in the media. I don’t know if it’s because this year Glenn is in the same boat, but with better chances, or if its because her performance in Vice is really NOT worth i, but it’s deader than ever.February 20, 2019 at 7:40 pm #1202783348
I think so but voting closed yesterday. Anything that happens today and afterwards probably won”t matter.
Yes I agree, these examples were all press from the voting period or posted like 6-7 days ago, in the final voting days.
People who are passionate about any performance wouldn’t be touched by this type of campaign, but I can imagine that voters who don’t care about watching all the performances might be influenced if reading an article on how “Rachel Weisz saved a writer’s life” or how Regina King was “prepared for this whole her entire life”.
Amy Adams’ campaign is so dead that the only news from this last week I’ve got is that her mom played Linney on Jimmy Kimmel.February 20, 2019 at 6:20 pm #1202783254
While I still haven’t made up my mind about this race, I am noticing that the publicity around Weisz these last weeks is subtle, yet strong. I’m watching her SAG career retrospective, which is a lovely piece on how grounded and intelligent she is and was posted early this month, and then only from this week there are two Times pieces, People’s 2019 Oscar Portfolio (which Regina King also is in), a piece in Vulture about her and Stone, a mention in The Guardian talking about memes and standouts of 2018, not to mention the BAFTA red carpet interviews and win from two weeks ago. That’s a huge amount of press but it never feels like hard campaigning.
Googling for Regina King in the same period, we’ve got the already mentioned People Oscar Portfolio (with a very #iwantthatoscar answer in it), a CNN interview, and a Vulture piece about her almost being crushed at a Philadelphia 76ers game.
Do you guys think that this kind of exposure in the last days of voting might influence voters that are no sure what to do?February 19, 2019 at 8:00 pm #1202782078
Finally got around watching Constantine. Boy, these visual effects did not aged well.February 19, 2019 at 4:04 pm #1202781886
Times is REALLY pushing Weisz these last couple of weeks: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/14/t-magazine/how-rachel-weisz-saved-my-life.html?fbclid=IwAR3YEYcRX6kmJU_XRO666rVHVsNanDL-aeDqAj9zDT76F5f0PGN09AhwQak
