I think Kirby is too much of an unknown to the general public for her to win Lead this year. Having seen Ma Rainey, Davis is great in it, but her screen time is much more limited that one would think. It’s really an ensemble film.November 25, 2020 at 6:35 pm #1203873763
Just got back from seeing this.
It’s a solid film and since it’s based on a play, it’s an actor’s showcase, but it’s truly an ensemble work. No one truly feels like a lead, which I think will be a topic of debate this Oscar season, but I understand why the studio would want to campaign Davis and Boseman as leads. Both characters are portrayed passionately, so I wouldn’t be opposed to them winning. Not having read the play, I was surprised by the long stretches in which Davis’ character was not on screen. It just felt so strange.
You can certainly tell its based on a play, as the film almost entirely takes place at the recording studio, which could be a turnoff to some viewers. I overheard a group as I was leaving say, “I thought more would happen. We should have waited for it to be on Netflix.” Though they were probably college-aged, so they may not appreciate a film in this style.
Having seen barely any of the “Oscar contenders” yet, I can’t really see this making it into the Best Picture race unless there is true passion for it among the industry.
Overall, it was great seeing Davis taking on a different kind of role, and it was great final performance for the late Boseman.November 12, 2020 at 8:53 pm #1203833149
Well regardless how this pans out at the Oscars, at least we’ll always have Amy Adams roller-skating her heart out to Bananarama’s “Cruel Summer,” which is a treat everyone can appreciate 🙂November 12, 2020 at 7:03 am #1203831336
The trailer is more melodramatic than the film is. The scenes fit well when all played together as a whole.November 12, 2020 at 4:33 am #1203831148
I forgot to mention this before, but I definitely think the general public will be favorable to the film. It will be relatable for those that grew up in small, run-down towns and certainly for anyone whose family has gone through drug addiction.
I would absolutely be SHOCKED if this film was nominated for any Razzie. It’s most certainly not on that level, and no where even close of being as terrible as a film as CATS.
It’s so strange to me that now since the critics have turned against the movie, the bulk of Gold Derby has too. Why are you all letting the critics speak for you, especially since the bulk of you haven’t seen the film?
C’mon, you’re better than that.November 11, 2020 at 6:20 pm #1203830454
So, these reviews and critic scores are definitely suspicious. It’s a shame they can’t separate the film from the author of the book.
I saw this tonight and thought it was a pretty solid film. My biggest critique would be that the ending could have been stronger. Glenn Close and Amy Adams are EXCELLENT, and personally I think Amy steals the film and leaves more of a lasting impression. Both should easily be nominated, but we will see if the skewed critic scores are enough to sink them. I hope Amy takes on more unhinged type roles because I think she’s great playing crazy. Glenn escapes so far into character that I didn’t even think I was watching Glenn Close; she was MeMaw! Also, shoutout to Haley Bennet who was great in this. Her and Jennifer Lawrence should play sisters in a movie, just saying.October 9, 2020 at 7:06 pm #1203769391
Ma is a role unlike ANYTHING Viola has done before. I don’t think people know what’s coming…October 9, 2020 at 6:49 pm #1203769377
For those of us not on TikTok, what happened with Dreams/Rumors to make so popular this week? Please don’t tell me teens made a lame to dance to Dreams…September 18, 2020 at 11:09 am #1203715517
If 911 is played on radio, then I think its the song she submits since it will be more recent in voters minds.September 17, 2020 at 3:40 pm #1203713694
They really should’ve penetrated the pop categories tbh.
Would’ve nominated them for the following.
• Best New Artist
• Best Pop / Duo Group — “What Makes You Beautiful”
Song of the Year — “Story of My Life”
Best Pop Duo / Group Performance – “Story of My Life”
Best Pop Vocal Album – Midnight Memories
Record of the Year – “Night Changes”
Song of the Year – “Night Changes”
Best Pop Duo / Group Performance – “Night Changes“
Best Pop Vocal Album – Four
Best Pop Vocal Album – Made in the AM
If Duo/Group was still separated into Collaboration & Bands they probably would’ve been nominated every year.
Four was their best album, and I think Night Changes should have given them a win somewhere.
As for BTS, I’m still not sure they’ll breakthrough with the Grammys, regardless how long Dynamite charts utilizing whatever’s means necessary.September 17, 2020 at 12:50 pm #1203713387
Happy for Thomas Rhett! He puts on a great live show filled with both upbeat music to dance to and slow ballads to sing a long with. Plus he’s been putting out new content during COVID, so he’s truly been entertaining the whole year.September 16, 2020 at 9:23 am #1203709881
Excited to hear “betty” performed tonight on the ACMs and what that might bring for the commercial success of the song following the show.September 16, 2020 at 8:03 am #1203709744
This week’s chart is one of the worst in a while…yikes. I still think some major changes need to be made with the calculations. If a song is “hot” I shouldn’t have to seek it out in order to hear it or know what it is.
