Will precursors be less influential due to low audiences?
They never have been influential. Over and over they pick one winner and oscar picks another. Lets gRyusei
I don't think so because the people who vote are very likely to watch these shows. Non-voters watching or not watching don't have an influence on the outcome

Did Glenn Close turn down her Oscar winning role?
I read the reason was so she could work with Redford. Silly choice!Atypical
I watched that link on Glenn Close's career retrospective from before and found it fascinating. I'd never heard of "The Bostonians," so I don't know what Vanessa Redgrave did or didn't do there. "The Natural" is considered as one of Close's weaker Os

What year had the most surprises in the acting races?
Maybe 2001? I didn't follow the oscars then and I know none of Denzel, Halle, or Broadbent were SHOCestrelas
[quote quote=1203853837] Peck, Davis, Sharif and Lansbury. All but one were upsets. Davis wasn't THE predicted to win. It was a very close race between her, Bancroft and Page. Bancroft won Cannes and NBR, while Page won GG. Davis had a lot

Dern easily sweeping last year was the writing on the wall that Netflix can secure career Oscars if they put the right resources behind it. Visibility afforded from campaign money was the only factor keeping Close from the finish line last time, and

Did Titanic deserve a screenplay nomination?
M: The Original
No. Its script is pedestrian. James Cameron's directorial prowess is why Titanic works at all.arodfan
