Taye Diggs isn’t ever coming back to hollywood after this, right? It’ not only embarassing, it’s a fucking trainwreckJanuary 13, 2019 at 5:06 pm #1202732274
The supporting acting categories announccement was just disrespectful with everyone there. Geez, this is not an award that I’ll watch every year.January 13, 2019 at 4:55 pm #1202732213
The clips that they are showing are so bad; with the exception of Foy, the SA nominees ALL had better scenes. Weisz’ scene was even edited for god’s sake!January 13, 2019 at 4:36 pm #1202732116
Boy, am I embarassed for Taye Diggs.January 10, 2019 at 7:32 pm #1202729525
I think Adams has three great scenes: the one right at the beginning where she calls out Dick for being a drunk and weak man, the one where her daughter comes out (small and subtle, but she was great in it), and the bed talk.
But idk, the character is unlikeable and doesn’t have its own narrative beyond the ‘you do it cause i can’t’. It’s not strong enough, in my opinion. But she sure is overdue.January 10, 2019 at 5:10 pm #1202729419
My Freddie would be proud of every second of that masterpiece the great Bryan Singer gave us. Rami was really on point at the Live Aid and no other movie came close this year. You’re all a bunch of haters who follow the snob critics. It will win because audiences LOVED IT and the customer is always right. Stay pressed. Long live the Queen.
Yes, because ‘the audience loves it’ really worked out great for Gravity.January 9, 2019 at 9:38 am #1202727557
The only reason people are disconting Emma Stone for the win is because she won 2 years ago?January 7, 2019 at 5:28 pm #1202724914
A Star Is Born will receive nominations, yes, it fared well with guilds, but what can it actually win? Because look, Gaga isn’t winning actress. Cooper isn’t winning director. Sam Elliot might upset, but he isn’t in the top 2 right now. Shallow has it in the bag, but a song win doesn’t mean a thing in the BP race. I don’t see ONE guild supporting this movie as a winner.
The thing is, ASIB will be recognized in many fields as one of the best but it will stop there (and I think, unfortunely, BlacKKKlansman is going to be similar). For this movie, the nomination will be the accolades.January 7, 2019 at 1:08 pm #1202724678
Because The Favourite stands no chance on a preferential ballot. It’s themes, style, and ending will alienate old guard types in the Academy. I think it’s a shame because I actually prefer the movie to Roma, but I believe the runner up in this case is likely Blackkklansman, ASIB, or even Green Book. I do agree with you however that this is currently Roma’s to lose. What is interesting about this year when compared to previous ones is that I don’t think there’s an obvious number 1, 2, and 3.
I’ll say again: I do think it’s a weird movie; hell, it’s a female-centric comedy with a chaotic direction and I can see these as being offputing for the Academy, but right now, I don’t see a clear alternative to Roma.
ASIB is a remake that has very little going outside of Gaga/Cooper and its songs and the people saying it’s the runner-up are overestimating its chances (as shown last night); Black Panther is too mainstream, and a superhero movie. Bohemian Rhapsody was not acclaimed amoung critics and I know that the critic’s opinions aren’t always in line with the Academy but it has been a while since a badly reviewed movie got BP (even Crash has better reviews). Blackkklansman is great, it has support and critical acclaim and yet we don’t see it winning anything. It’s amoung the best, for sure, but it was completely shut down last night and it hasn’t won much with critics. ; Vice and Green Book are mediocre/decent at best, from what I’m told (I haven’t seen them yet). The rest of the BP slots aren’t even locks, I can’t see anything else winning. As weirder as The Favourite is, it has the acclaim, powerful performances and I can see it being nominated in the important categories. The almost shut down last night puts it in a slightly dangerous place, yes, but for me it’s still the only viable option to Roma.
All that being said, the only reason preventing Roma from being a total lock is its foreign status, and i don’t know how big is this bias. To me, the two runner ups are The Favourite and Green Book.
