Paul Dano and Kunal Nayyar have been cast alongside Adam Sandler and Carey Mulligan in ‘SPACEMAN’ for Netflix.April 19, 2021 at 1:25 pm #1204209880
It’s definitely a good question, but then again MRBB only won Best LGBTQ Film, while Nomadland still won Best Film. I just think they preferred Carey, which is obviously not really that difficult to imagine. Cassie also seems like the type of character the gay public would love. I don’t know…just an opinion.
I also think these LGBTQ film critics simply preferred Carey’s performance, and it may have helped that PYW brings attention to an issue of tremendous importance to the LGBTQ community– sexual assault.April 19, 2021 at 7:22 am #1204209054
But, I’m tired of black actors just being nominated for roles in movies that are either stage adaptations or biopics. I mean, where are the interesting roles? Its infuriating why more complex, well written parts aren’t being written for black actors because of which many are stuck to biopics..
I couldn’t agree with this more, and I would extend the thought to include a need for more complex, well written parts for all POC, and for all women. I’m very cautiously hopeful that as more Black and POC and female writers and directors and producers are able to secure funding for their projects, a wider range of stories will be told, and more interesting, complex parts for Black, POC and female actors will be created. The question of whether AMPAS members will be willing to honor them with nominations and awards is another matter….April 18, 2021 at 12:50 pm #1204207761
And Mulligan was literally screwed over by her campaign crew (wrong GG category submission) and the BAFTA jury. I wish she’d have the visibility to take this, but I’m kind of done hoping.
Mulligan and PYW were submitted at the Globes by Focus and Fennell in the Comedy categories and were switched to Drama by the HFPA. Carey losing the Globe was not due to a mistake “by her campaign crew.”April 17, 2021 at 2:54 pm #1204206236
No reason why Promising Young Woman missed Costume Design, Production Design, or make-up at the Oscars. Get real people, it’s the Emerald Fennell show and 3 of the film’s nominations are from Fennell alone.
You can look it up. Historically, contemporary movies, unlike period pieces or sci/fi or fantasy films, virtually never win Costume Design, Hair and Make-up, or Production Design Oscars. In fact, the reason decades ago the guilds broke up their awards and now give separate guild ones for Contemporary, Sci/Fi Fantasy, and Period work was in recognition of this fact. PYW’s costume and production design were so striking and integral to the film that some thought an exception to the usual practice might be made, but nobody in the industry with great experience “expected” Oscar noms for PYW in these categories. I’m not making excuses for PYW— check out the past winners in these categories.April 17, 2021 at 2:31 pm #1204206151
Nobody needs to be making excuses for Carey, or any Best Actress nominee. This notion that an Oscar, SAG, and Golden Globe nominee, and CC, AACTA, NBR and LAFCA winner is a “flop” because she didn’t win SAG or GG or BAFTA is ridiculous. Amy Adams and Kate Winslet and Sophia Loren and Michelle Pfeiffer have not had successful awards seasons- but even if Carey does not win the Oscar, and she still might do so, she has certainly not “flopped” this year.April 17, 2021 at 2:08 pm #1204206074
ADG, SAG, ACE Eddie?
Well, in addition to Emerald’s WGA award, Nancy Steiner just won the Costume Designer’s Guild Award for Contemporary Film for PYW, and Michael Perry just won a Set Decorators Guild Award for Set Design of a Contemporary Film for PYW, and Angie Wells was nominated for a Hollywood Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Guild Award for Contemporary Film, and Carey was nominated for a SAG Award and Frederic Thoraval was nominated for an ACE, so with all due respect, it’s silly to claim that the guilds “don’t like” Promising Young Woman.April 17, 2021 at 1:40 pm #1204205964
And Parasite’s editor that no one knows about was an ACE member? No he was not.
Actually, Jinmo Yang IS an ACE member; American citizenship is not an ACE membership requirement.
Also, unlike PYW, Palm Springs wasn’t nominated for an Academy Award.
And which Guild is it that doesn’t like Promising Young Woman? The WGA which gave Emerald Fennell its Original Screenplay Award over Aaron Sorkin for Trial?April 17, 2021 at 1:24 pm #1204205895
Aged like milk when…(for editing) a no1currr film like Palm Springs won over Pissing Young Woman.
That’s likely at least partly due to the fact that Promising Young Woman’s editor, Frédéric Thoraval, who is French, is not a member of ACE (American Cinema Editors), while Palm Beach’s editor, Matthew Friedman, IS an ACE member.April 17, 2021 at 1:14 pm #1204205841
I think the precursor each one won matters. CC does not equal the support of SAG. Or are we now pretending that it does?
The predictions here are a whole other story. How many really predicted Colman two years ago?
I think it matters also, and I agree that Viola might currently be leading, but please bear in mind that (1) Viola has previously won a SAG and NOT gone on to win the Oscar that year, (2) actors make up only 14% of the AMPAS voters and due to (1) there’s reason to believe that Viola is more popular with actors than non-actor AMPAS Academy members, and (3) we have no idea how close the SAG vote was— it’s possible that Viola defeated other nominees by a relatively small margin. Also, a not insignificant percentage of British and Australian actors who are AMPAS members are not SAG members, so to the extent that a majority of them vote for Carey or Vanessa, (which is unclear), then Viola might not win as high a percentage of the votes of the actors who are AMPAS members as most people currently expect.
I am NOT saying that Viola won’t win; I’m only saying that it is still too close and uncertain to know with any degree of confidence who is currently leading, let alone who will win.April 17, 2021 at 12:27 pm #1204205687
How is this the most “unpredictable” category? It’s Viola, then (very distantly) Andra and Frances as the spoiler if they really want to give her an undeserved 3rd in acting. This is in the same level of predictability than Supporting Actress. The dust has settled.
Nothing has happened within the last week to change the fact that four different people won precursors and all four still have a very good shot at winning. BTW, while I think that many of the predictions haven’t been updated recently, and I strongly disagree with the site’s general consensus, at Gold Derby, Carey STILL has over 1200 more votes than all four other nominees combined–-last I checked, there’s 3334 for Carey, and 2128 for everybody else, (with Viola having 968 of those 2128 votes). I don’t see your basis for concluding that the dust has settled.April 17, 2021 at 1:49 am #1204204957

I really don’t think voters will care that Mulligan has signed up to do a film with Adam Sandler. Besides, he seems to be pivoting with his choices, too. Way too much speculation going on here – next Sunday needs to hurry up and put a stop to all this wild theorising.
In retrospect I agree with you so I’ve deleted my earlier post. (Insomnia and anxiety can lead to regrettable speculation.)
