Weisz is only the third British actress this decade to win the BAFTA for Supporting Actress. Colman is the first to win Best Actress this decade, so I refuse to listen to these myths that the BAFTAs favour their own, at least in recent times.February 12, 2019 at 4:00 am #1202773164

It has been over a decade since Weisz was nominated and deservedly won the Oscar for her legitimate Supporting Role. In that time since she has churned out multiple acclaimed leading performances.
It has barely been 5 years since Ali won his Oscar and he is almost guaranteed a second. How can people compare the two when it’s obvious Weisz is more due some attention after such a gap?February 12, 2019 at 1:28 am #1202773106
My darlings, would it not be a delight to imagine Glenn Close losing Oscar for a seventh time? Seeing her face after she lost the BAFTA Award was indeed a delight. She was more of a soar loser than Hillary Clinton was when she lost the presidency.
It was indeed a shock when someone told me Lady Gaga wasn’t actually in attendance at the BAFTAs. The photo they showed of her when they announced the winner had the exact same dead eyed expression she showed throughout her entire film. I can’t deny as I watched the broadcast I didn’t notice until afterwards that Gaga was at the Grammys.February 11, 2019 at 10:54 am #1202772299
Wow like every time I’ve logged in here FreemanGriffin is getting bullied in some thread by cliques of toxic individuals…I guess this forum doesn’t have moderators. What a sad and unpleasant place to check the state of the awards circuit. It’s been obvious for a few months now so without any improvements I’ll be happy to check-in lessFebruary 11, 2019 at 7:16 am #1202771948
So we were told Gaga was sweeping Best Actress and the Grammys. Talk about overhyped (and I say that as a fan of her music)February 10, 2019 at 3:10 pm #1202769071
Let’s be honest, while I have no doubt there is some valid criticism of Bohemian Rhapsody, the vast majority of the hate the movie is receiving is political. Take Bryan Singer from the director’s chair and add in Tom Hooper or someone else, and you have a film that us universally loved by the majority of members on this board. The accusations against Singer, coupled with Sacha Baron Cohen’s negative comments about the project from a few years ago, really hurt Bohemian Rhapsody’s chances of being liked by mainstream critics as well as snooty Oscar buzzers like those who post on this board. Bohemian Rhapsody is by no means the best movie of 2018. But it was entertaining and did what it set out to do: that is to pay homage to Queen’s music and to Freddie Mercury. Malek and the rest of the cast did a solid job with their performances and the film was very well made. If it were directed by anyone else, it would have gotten reviews similar to Walk the Line.
But didn’t you know, if you are happy about Malek winning for his performance based on your own taste in acting, you also automatically sympathise with the director of the film’s apparent behaviour? If you preferred Bale winning, you’d also become an advocate for domestic abuse. Or at least that is the logic of the thought police that infest this board. You have been warned.February 10, 2019 at 2:15 pm #1202768721
Now we all just want to be Sandy Powell, or have an ounce of her swagFebruary 10, 2019 at 1:23 pm #1202768416
Has Colman ever lost a BAFTA? Scary recordFebruary 10, 2019 at 4:31 am #1202767140
Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and of course Sam Rockwell in Vice. What a pantomime.
Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, and Sam Elliott in A Star is Born (although Sam gave the best acting performance, he wasn’t Oscar nomination worthy)
Yalitza Aparicio and her fading wallpaper performance in Roma, conveniently the camera left her at pivotal moments, Cuaron deserves the Oscar solely for landing her a nomination by hiding her from the camera…
