Did people really think Erivo would get nominated at BAFTA? She is in the race because the movie made money and her character is a Civil War icon.
Harriet made like 100k in UK and no one there knows who Harriet Tubman is. Why should they care about that movie?January 1, 2020 at 4:20 pm #1203256155
Let’s not be sheep and nominate these two ladies.December 29, 2019 at 9:51 am #1203253258
1917 might very well win PGA, but I can’t see it winning BP at the Oscars just because the voters from the actors’ and writers’ branches won’t appreciate it enough. The Revenant and La La Land lost for similar reasons.December 28, 2019 at 9:55 am #1203252565
For best supporting actress, I strongly believe we need to be taking Lee Jeong Eun (Parasite) more seriously as a possible nominee.
On playing the duplicitous maid, Jeong Eun makes the most of all the screen time she is afforded – showing a range any character actress could only wish for.
It is also through Jeong Eun’s character that one of the major twists in Parasite unfolds, ensuring a lasting impression on the viewer.
Finally, Jeong Eun, a veteran actress, is cleaning up on the supporting actress categories in her native Korea for this particular role. Yes, South Korean awards are not American industry awards …. however, we all know there will be some surprise in the acting category nominations, we all know there is a growing international voting body and we also know Parasite is one of the most lauded films this year.
Just do not discount this tour-de-force performance done to perfection by the super-talented Lee Jeong Eun 🙂
If anyone of the Parasite ladies gets a nomination, it will be Cho Yeo-jeong (even tho personally I think that all four female performances in Parasite are more worthy than the likes of Dern and Lopez). However Neon are only campaigning Song Kang-ho for acting, so it’s not happening, unfortunately.December 17, 2019 at 6:14 pm #1203242226
I didn’t like The Force Awakens at all, yet people really liked it. I enjoyed The Last Jedi, but people hated it. So I have no idea what to expect.
To be honest, both Disney and SW fandom make me want to puke, so I secretly want the movie to be bad.December 16, 2019 at 2:13 pm #1203240388
Darling, it should be Pedro. But it’s probably going to be Feminist Gerwig, because of what everybody knows.
The irony is that Almodovar has done much much more for female representation on film than Gerwig ever will.December 15, 2019 at 5:14 pm #1203238776
I love this thread. The only reason she is in the race is that she is insanely thirsty for that Oscar. And somehow people got into their heads that she is overdue, even though she’s only been nominated twice and has never even been in a Best Picture nominated movie before.
Let’s not delude ourselves though, she is winning. And easily so.December 15, 2019 at 5:58 am #1203237836

Just saw Parasite, and while I didn’t love it as much as I hoped (I really liked it) I just came here to say that Yeo-jeong Jo was great and should absolutely crash this boring race. And after sag ensemble she actually might?
She was the MVP for me as well, perhaps even my favourite performance of the year, but Neon are campaigning only Song Kang-ho for acting unfortunately.December 14, 2019 at 4:49 am #1203235784
I wish Johansson had frauded herself into supporting. Then at least we would have a worthy winner.
