Keaton kinda ate everyone with a 5 or less minute screentime yeah. But outside of him, Rylance by far.October 16, 2020 at 7:40 pm #1203783521
Let me start by saying that the general negativity on this board isn’t shocking, but continues to be dismaying. Every year, more voices are added to this forum that drown out positive, constructive criticism and conversation about the awards race and the contenders in favor of troll language, popularizing hating something based only on reputation, and general negativity toward every film that is deemed a contender. It quite frankly has sucked the fun out of following the awards race and being a member of this website.
The random essay and meltdown because people have an opinion different than your’s and call a film that they find bad bad. The only thing negative is the quality of the film. Chile…October 16, 2020 at 1:09 pm #1203782924
It was basic but not even popcorn entertainment basic, it was boring with nothing interesting to say except bad jokes basic. I’ve seen better courtroom dramas in L&O episodes ngl. The ending though was truly bad and it decided its fate with me. Jeremy and Eddie gave the worst performances in this by far in a movie riddled with nothing performances. I mean their accents were…choices to say the least.
He was also terrible in The Gentlemen earlier this year. He is such a bad actor.
Watch him in Serenity and it gets worse. Being the worst thing about an already atrocious movie like that is severely bad. The only thing I’ve ever liked him in was Succession and that was the first season.October 14, 2020 at 1:04 pm #1203778667
SAG and Globes sweep incoming.October 9, 2020 at 10:19 pm #1203769543
Noah and Emily are severely not happening at populist SAG in a million years, especially if the Emmys didn’t go for them. And comparing them to Billy Crudup is dumb when he was just underestimated by the mods for SAG and had actual buzz that lead him to an Emmy win.October 9, 2020 at 10:12 pm #1203769534
She had a lot of Sundance buzz and is a previous Oscar nominee. I’m waiting to see how she does at the precursors before I put her in.
I very much doubt she’ll happen anywhere other than the Globes. It really only seems like popcorn/borderline-Lifetime fair that they’ll eat up for her. At best she’ll end up like Lupita last year as a critics darling and only happens at one precursor and only there.October 4, 2020 at 12:50 pm #1203759237
If Nomadland is the perceived frontrunner to win BP, sweeps the precursors, and Frances is on screen accepting as a producer at every awards show, best believe voters will want to spread the wealth. Especially when McDormand has recently won in Lead Actress and will already be a head in the biggest category of the night. It’s not inconceivable to believe at all.
And then you wake up. They clearly love Frances and if you think if they love her more in the category than anyone else and won’t reward her because of a producing win, then I don’t know what to tell you. If she loses, it’s not because of a producing credit.October 4, 2020 at 12:35 pm #1203759180
Brad Pitt and Michael Douglas both won their producing and acting awards for different movies. No one’s won both acting and producing Oscars for the same movie.
Hence why I said “regardless when they get it.” No one votes or thinks like what the original poster said except for GD. If a voter loves the film enough to give it BP, then they’ll probably love the Actress enough to give her their vote as well since they loved everything about the film. It’s more of coincidence it’s never happened at the Oscars when it happens all the time for other awards. If Nomadland takes both Screenplay and Directing when it wins BP, then I can see voters being fine with her losing, but it’s unlikely since they love it so much.
That’s exactly what happened with Lady Gaga. Albeit with the song category.
Gaga wasn’t winning Best Actress regardless if she won the Globe while Gaga has probably one of the most acclaimed Oscar songs and awarded in history (they wouldn’t have given the Oscar to anyone else). She and Glenn were always losing to Olivia.October 4, 2020 at 11:45 am #1203759011
Frances has producing credit on Nomadland. If that’s a frontrunner for BP, she’s definitely losing Actress. I don’t see the Academy giving McDormand 2 in 1 night and 4 overall career wins.
No one cares about producing wins for Actors though (or anyone really) regardless when they get it. Otherwise Brad Pitt would only have one Oscar.October 4, 2020 at 11:29 am #1203758985

This is so late, but it’s because I just got caught up. Wolfali, you said you don’t know a single person who thinks Green Book is better than The Favourite or BlacKkKlansman. My dad and I do! I think all three are good, worthy of their nominations. Green Book is just more entertaining to me.
