I actually could see Jodie Comer doing a really good job with thisOctober 19, 2020 at 11:13 am #1203788534
I’m curious if Lovecraft will go limited or drama (I could’ve sworn I read somewhere that even if it does get multiple seasons they’ll be doing anthology storylines)
Honestly in either category, I think it has a very solid chance of doing well. Series, Lead Actor, Lead Actress, maybe a supporting actor or two. Rewind, 1921 will (or at least should) be there big emmy episode, would deserve spots in writing, directing, production design, costume design, etc.
It’s definitely a hit or miss show (the season was kind of all over the place) but when it was good, it was great. Plus, and i don’t mean this to say this would be the reason it gets in, it won’t hurt that it’s one of the only shows with a cast/crew basically entirely made up of POC competing next yearOctober 17, 2020 at 6:44 pm #1203785134
Eddie Redmayne’s cheekbonesOctober 17, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203784317
It’s because the threshold for films about women being considered oscar worthy is much harder to reach, imoOctober 16, 2020 at 11:14 am #1203782593
I find it interesting how Strong and Yahya were originally built up as the film’s big supporting contenders, but now Rylance and Langella seem to be eclipsing them.
Yahya probably gives the best and least “Sorkin-y” performance but he’s just not in the movie enough, it’s a shame. Personally I thought Langella hammed it up a bit too much but that means he’ll probably be the one to get nominated.October 16, 2020 at 10:24 am #1203782482
I maintain that A24 fucked up by campaigning Jacob Tremblay in supporting for Room. Even ignoring the fact that he is clearly a lead (he has MORE screentime than lead winner Brie Larson, he’s the narrator of the movie, and he’s literally in every scene), the lead actor race ended up being much less competitive than supporting that year, and I really do think he would’ve been nominated had they campaigned him in lead.
I also think if it had happened a couple years later, when A24 was more established at the oscars, they might have had the balls to make the riskier choice of campaigning a child actor in lead, but I suppose I get them going with the safer choice since they were so new to everything.October 16, 2020 at 10:20 am #1203782464
Having seen Chicago 7, it actually seemed to me like Redmayne had the most screentime and the most prominent “arc”. The second the movie ended my roommate turned to me and said “so I guess Eddie Redmayne was the lead after all”
The academy likes him and he’s definitely a more “respectable” actor than Cohen, so don’t be surprised if all of a sudden he becomes the awards focus of the movie instead of cohen. Reminds me slightly of when Janelle Monae got the better reviews in Hidden Figures, but then Spencer suddenly started popping up on all the nominations lists because they had to nominate someone from the movie like her more and she’s the more “respected” actorOctober 15, 2020 at 5:29 pm #1203781430
I love this show but was hesitant to predict as it seemed like maybe too much of an internet thing. But if other people are seeing it too then maybe I can have hope for it. The Globes do love anything with a European element and maybe that can start a healthy run for the showOctober 15, 2020 at 11:34 am #1203780814
Everyone keeps saying Aaron wins by default but it seems to me like he still has to get 60% of voters to vote him as “worthy”, so technically there’s a chance he could be the only nominee in the category and still lose.
I would feel so bad for him, but that would also be hilariousOctober 15, 2020 at 10:12 am #1203780656
Anyone else shocked when they saw Shonda Rhimes first netflix series is a period piece about a white girl?October 14, 2020 at 5:03 pm #1203779275
I know it’s unlikely but I’m just going to throw out there that I hope Everybody’s Talking about Jamie gives Sarah Lancashire her Olivia Colman crossover moment (if anyone hasn’t watched Happy Valley watch it now).
Her role in the original musical was nominated for an Olivier award in the leading category, so if the movie’s a hit and gets anywhere near awards she should have a pretty good amount of material for supporting (which is I’m sure where they’d campaign her). If they stick to the musical she’ll get multiple big songs and they love musicals in the supporting actress categoryOctober 14, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203778255
Am I the only one who thought the Hillbilly trailer looked, kinda bad… Amy and Glenn are really hamming it upOctober 13, 2020 at 4:53 pm #1203776504
I see Prom being the fun musical everyone hypes up but then isn’t very good and Everybody’s Talking about Jamie being the movie no one’s looking out for but then becomes a crowdpleasing favorite.October 13, 2020 at 4:34 pm #1203776493
I really don’t see Vanessa Kirby as a viable option here. Best Actress never really goes to someone from a tiny indie movie UNLESS they’re a veteran (Julianne Moore, Renee Zellwegger), or the movie is a BP player (Brie Larson), which I really don’t see happening for Pieces of a Woman.
The only times that has happened in the last FIFTY YEARS are Halle Berry for Monster’s Ball, and Charlize Theron for Monster, both of whom had significant advantages in their narrative that Kirby does not.
She could definitely still be a nominee, and this year anything could happen I guess, but she’d be a very unique winnerOctober 13, 2020 at 11:07 am #1203775974
It’ll be very interesting to see how the Corrin vs Anderson race plays out. We’ve seen these narratives for this show before, just not in the same category. It’s essentially the Churchill role (veteran actor playing a political icon) vs the Margaret role (unknown newcomer as a tragic heroine). But if anything it’s made even more equal by Thatcher’s more divisive legacy and Diana’s much larger name recognition than Margaret. It’s neck and neck.
Both incredibly baity roles, and narratives. I’m VERY interested to see if one can take the other out, or they fully split the vote.
