It’s probably Dern’s tern unfortunately(haven’t seen her performance but this category used to be way more exciting and it’s gotten duller with three career wins even though Davis was really deserving).I don’t see Lopez prevailing.December 12, 2019 at 2:24 am #1203233214
Rent got way too much hate, it was a perfectly fine adaptation.
I agree- I enjoy the film. And to be clear, the characters are complaining about rent because their friend went back on a promise to let them live rent free. I’d be mad if I was them. Still, they really should have worked on getting jobs lol.December 12, 2019 at 2:08 am #1203233204
I think this could be the lineup if Ronan starts collapsing: Awkwafina, Erivo, Johansson, Theron, Zellweger.December 11, 2019 at 7:23 pm #1203232775
This is great news for Lupita but she’s hardly a lock. There is always someone at SAG who doesn’t make it in most years: Emily Blunt, Judi Dench, Amy Adams & Emily Blunt, Helen Mirren & Sarah Silverman, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Thompson, Helen Mirren & Marion Cotillard, Tilda Swinton, Hillary Swank, Angelina Jolie, Ziyi Zhang, Patricia Clarkson & Evan Rachel Wood,Jane Horrocks, Pam Grier & Robin Wright(there were six noms in the actress category this year but regardless both women were replaced by Julie Christie at the Oscars), Gena Rowlands, Joan Allen(she got nominated in supporting at the Oscars but the Academy still did not agree with SAG in their actress lineup) and Meg Ryan & Meryl Streep.December 9, 2019 at 9:08 pm #1203228384
Judy is guaranteed to be more widely seen than The Wife based on Judy Garland’s star power alone. I don’t really think there is a frontrunner right now. If forced, I’d say Renee but that’s just for now.December 9, 2019 at 4:29 pm #1203228013
I think it will be: Awkwafina, Johansson, Ronan, Theron, and Zellweger.December 7, 2019 at 12:48 am #1203220896
I watched the trailer and I feel like Ronan seems too contemporary- part of that is the point of the character but she seems like she’s bringing too much of the 21st century culture now into the role.December 6, 2019 at 12:05 am #1203219672
This race is odd- Theron, Zellweger, and Johannson are in but the other spots are up for grabs. I have a feeling Ronan will get in and the last spot will go to Awkwafina. Who knows?December 5, 2019 at 11:56 pm #1203219669
She was definitely not second or maybe even definitely not third for About Schmidt. The film couldn’t even get a screenplay nomination and she is barely in it(although I think she is great none the less). I think Moore could have surpassed her in the final vote tally with Zeta-Jones and Streep ahead.December 2, 2019 at 10:38 pm #1203213010
I have to agree with Lil Tony on Ladybird- I felt the film was overrated and rather contrived. I don’t think #METOO is responsible for it being successful however.November 22, 2019 at 9:35 pm #1203198030
It’s always nice to read amateurs thinking they got a point. Not that I care, but aren’t Close’s losses for FA and DL seen as ones of the Oscars biggest mistakes lol. I don’t remember anyone complaining about The Favourite going 1/10. People genuinely didn’t care about the film, so did the Academy.
Hmmm, I certainly cared and so did many people on this site. It also didn’t underperform everywhere before the Oscars at least not entirely. It won seven BAFTAs and won two guild awards for it’s production and costume design respectively.And it’s loss for Original Screenplay is already considered a big mistake by the Academy.November 19, 2019 at 11:11 pm #1203189425
It’s been sixteen years since both Theron and Zellweger’s wins? That is quite a period.November 13, 2019 at 2:44 pm #1203178194
They should just give it to Olivia Colman and these two women and ignore this uninspiring list of contenders all together.November 13, 2019 at 10:58 am #1203177811
Is it? Not where I am.
Sandra had a special case. Never have I seen the stars line up for anyone quite like that, both professionally and in her personal life.
If you’re referring to TBS it’s a box office success with durability. A popular Saviour film which ostensibly held good intentions for the audience.
If you haven’t seen Bullock in Love Potion #9 consider it. I was a fan of her work then. Not so much now.
I completely agree- Bullock’s rise was pretty surprising to me at the time because the film and performance really did not feel like Oscar bait material. Even Bullock was surprised by all the attention. Still the recognition she got from Hollywood for her years of work is something I think that Johansson may get this year.November 11, 2019 at 11:34 pm #1203175618
I haven’t been following things that much but this might be Johansson’s year in the same way that it was Bullock’s ten years ago although Johansson has a bit more clout as a dramatic actress than Bullock. She’s been around for awhile and this film seems like perfect Oscar bait. It feels like her turn. Don’t know how the current political landscape will affect Theron and whether Zellweger can build a strong enough level of momentum to win on Oscar night especially if the Best Picture nominee’s dominate the races again in the same way they did last year.We’ll see.
