I’m fairly confident that Olivia will get a second Oscar within a couple years regardless. Empire of Light sounds very promising and there were rumors around that project with Kate Winslet. Almost all of her projects since she broke through with The Favourite have been Oscar contenders (even The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a critical favorite and likely nom for animated feature).January 20, 2022 at 8:36 pm #1204741230
They’re literally in categories together, they’re already pitted against each other. Having them separate just makes it easier to understand what a particular actor is doing, rather than having two lines drowned out by music or whatever.
That’s fair. Both options are better than no clips for sure.January 20, 2022 at 7:26 pm #1204741139
I think it’s consensus that everyone here enjoys the clips for the nominees but I’m curious: do you guys prefer the individual clips or the montages like they did for the actors at the 2020 ceremony? The more I think about it the more I prefer the way they did it in 2020, it felt very grand and more of a celebration of all the nominees work, rather than separating and pitting them against one another.January 20, 2022 at 7:22 am #1204740047
Watch Olivia get snubbed entirely from BAFTAJanuary 19, 2022 at 10:07 pm #1204739534
its dumb since she’s obviously in the top 2 as of now These people putting Jessica and even Cruz above her is so petty lol
I agree they’re being petty but she’s not obviously top 2. Top 3, sure, but I can see a case for Nicole and Olivia both being above her, especially for a nomination.January 18, 2022 at 5:17 pm #1204736813
Ok so this is pretty big….since the start of the Online Film Critics Society (1997), all (with the exception of the three below) Best Actress winners were in their line up. Those who missed: Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets Nicole Kidman, The Hours Sandra Bullock, The Blind SideJanuary 18, 2022 at 7:43 am #1204735682
I also think part of the reason why TLD has such a low audience score is because of the audience it’s available to. It’s not the kind of movie you put on casually because you see it advertised on Netflix. I think if people were having to go consciously to theaters to see it then fewer people might see it but a far higher percentage of people would like it because they would’ve known what they were getting in to. As of now, you get a ton of people complaining the movie has too little plot because they went into it expecting a crime drama.
Despite this, it’s clear Colman has a lot of support. She made SAG when she was not always expected to and her film has consistently over-performed at the precursors. There’s clearly respect for both her and the movie there that shouldn’t go overlooked. Will she win? Maybe, but there’s enough of a chance where you shouldn’t call people delusional for predicting it.January 17, 2022 at 6:55 pm #1204734839
1000 Doves is a good song I will not apologize for having taste!January 17, 2022 at 6:45 pm #1204734816
I mean, I’m rooting for Olivia to win this and I’m actively listening to 1000 Doves as I type this. Gaga’s music is great but not everyone is hiding a deep-rooted passionate hatred for Gaga by rooting for other contenders, sometimes people just prefer other performances.January 17, 2022 at 11:13 am #1204734039
Lmfao. HoG alone has grossed more than all these movies combined (let alone ASIB). Do you really think that Colman’s so-called “filmography” can compete with such A-listers like Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman who have both box office smashes and critically acclaimed indie movies (let alone such undisputed legends like Meryl Streep?). Again, Devil Wears Prada is more relevant today than Colman’s entire filmography.
I mean in fairness, BO =/= ‘good’ and a lot of Colman’s projects were highly acclaimed and praised. She got her break, at least stateside, in The Favourite and then the world promptly fell into a pandemic where the only BO successes have been superhero films and House of Gucci. Most of her projects aren’t to audience tastes, but that doesn’t make them bad.Not now
