The Ana de Armas predictions are getting ridiculous, since when she became a serious contender? Like most early predictions don’t even consider her in the Top 15, what is this?
Thinking you mayyyyyyy have something against here, even if it’s subconscious. We literally have nothing to go off of besides set photos. At this point last year, some Best Actress predictions included Natalie Portman for Lucy in the Sky, Meryl Streep for The Laundromat, and Amy Adams for Woman in the Window. So I promise, no one is a serious contender yet. None of these movies have even been released.
That being said, acting like predicting Ana de Armas is crazy is crazy in itself. She’s coming off a pretty big year, where she got a Globe nomination for a standout performance in a cast full of well-known/beloved actors, and has an even bigger one coming.

TLDR: “Only the Young” is not eligible, and “Beautiful Ghosts” is a long shot given the film it’s attached to.
I think she’ll still submit Only the Young, or at least try to. It’s being marketed as “featured in Miss Americana.” It was never explicitly stated that it wasn’t written for the film, and with it being featured in the end credits/released alongside it, I think they have a fair argument. “Spirit,” though featured in The Lion King, technically could’ve been written before the film was even in production, and then used for the film (it wasn’t, but just a hypothetical) and there would be no way to prove that.
It’s a useless discussion, though, because Only the Young is a very bad song that would not get nominated anyway.

So “Sam”, “Smith” and “Sam Smith” isn’t good enough even though they are gender-neutral and that is his actual name? I think that it’s a good middle ground and I bet you that Sam would not care about that in the slightest.
If I told you I (cisgender male) used he/him pronouns, you would use he/him pronouns for me. It should be just that easy for someone who prefers they/them. Sam Smith’s preferred pronouns are not “Sam/Smith,” so you are, in fact, using the incorrect pronouns. Last I’ll speak on this topic. Educate yourself.

Also if I am as “queerphobic” as you say, why have I always given big praise to Sam Smith? Surely if I was as “phobic” as you think I am, I would’ve hated Sam and Sam’s music, but I don’t. I am even using the correct pronouns for Smith.
You are not using the correct pronouns. You were told that they prefer “they/them” pronouns, but because you personally don’t “understand” that decision, you are choosing only to refer to them as “Sam” or “Smith,” which is frankly awkward to read. It takes zero effort on your part to use the preferred pronouns for this singer you supposedly respect, and the fact that you refuse to do so even after you’ve been respectfully educated and corrected is, even if unintentionally, queerphobic. I don’t know your history with the topic, but I can assure you that just from your behavior in this thread, you probably haven’t changed as much as you think you have. No space for this in 2020.

Last Night in Soho will be WAY bigger than we think. Picture, Wright for director, and I think Wright and Wilson-Cairns could win screenplay. It seems like a strong drama with a good cast, and Wilson-Cairns has proven that she can do good screenplay work, so I see this one being VERY popular when it comes out and being a crazy wild card.
Hoping this is the case. I’ve been waiting for Thomasin Mckenzie to break through for three years now, she’s easily the best young actress currently active and didn’t get nearly enough credit for her performance in Jojo.

Calling No Time to Die a lock for the win in February is ….. a choice.
Honestly, if it’s a reallllllllllly weak year for Original Songs, I could maybe see a possibility of it MAYBE winning. But it’s important to keep in mind that the AMPAS are a lot more snobby than the Recording Academy, so I wouldn’t be predicting her victory a year in advance just because she swept the Grammys.

I can’t see No Time to Die being a big event. It’s boring. I was actually impressed with her vocals, but I don’t see it being as big as Adele/Sam’s Bond songs at allllll. Really forgettable.
If it’s a weak year in the film music fields, it will get a nomination. But it’s so early that if 5 other songs come out that are even somewhat more memorable, I don’t think she’s a lock by any means.

Taylor needs to stop seeking validation from the Grammys. She has won ten statues already including album of the year, twice. Chill girl let your work speak for itself. Grammys mean nothing. She puts this pressure upon herself every time she makes a record. At the end of the day your albums are commercial and critical smashes. Your fans are chanting the words to your songs at sold out stadium tours around the world, that’s all that matters.
Did you watch the doc? This sounds like telling someone who’s depressed to just “Be happy :)”

If Future Nostalgia performs well and she manages to get a late spring/early summer hit out of it, I’d say she’ll be a safe bet in pop at the very least.

Obviously these are year in advanced predictions so the stakes are very low, but I don’t even expect “everything i wanted” to be in the conversation come the spring. I love that song, but given that Billie is a Gen Z pop star, it’s highly unlikely that she won’t drop another single before the eligibility period, and one that will probably perform better. Pop has changed drastically and “eras” are meaning less and less. I’m sure she won’t release another full length album for at least a year, but to assume that she’s gonna drop the bond theme and then disappear is highly unlikely. It’s way too early in her career to do that, and her team is well aware of that.

Billie has completely shaken up pop music with a fresh new sound and her album’s impact on the musical landscape is going to be felt for years.
Not to be that bitch that quotes something from two days ago, but this seriously took me out. Shaken up pop music? I think she had a great album, but don’t act like Lorde wasn’t doing it 7 years before her (and doing it better, I’ll add). Remember when every single Lorde performance would get dragged to hell because she was “weird”? I swear, you Billerd stans ruin her for me. I think she’s super talented, but hailing her like some renegade, revolutionary artist who’s gonna have “impact on the musical landscape” is such a reach.

Pop Vocal Album switched to pre means it’s 100% Billie
delusional swifties grab back! women grab back!January 26, 2020 at 2:25 pm #1203308077
My final predictions w/ knowledge of pre-show categories
AOTY: When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
ROTY: “Old Town Road”
SOTY: “Truth Hurts”
BNA: Billie Eilish
Pop Vocal Album: Thank U, Next
Pop Solo Performance: “Bad Guy”
Pop Duo/Group: “Old Town Road”
I think it’s entirely possible for Billie to win AOTY and lose Pop Vocal. I know that’s not common (or has never happened?), but right now I’m leaning towards a scenario where she gets enough support from other genres to take AOTY without Pop.

A little late to the game here, but I really don’t think Renée’s awkward Globes speech is gonna help her chances at a win at all, and if anything I think it’s gonna hurt them. It’s common knowledge that speeches at these televised precursors are basically an audition for the Oscars, and if that’s the case she just botched hers.
