Tweet about how devastated she is for his wife who lost her entire world and has to somehow move on and raise her three other daughters, one of which she literally had last summer. Her claiming she is heartbroken for his family and then immediately calling him rapist completely negates those “well-wishes.”
I think that you missed the point of her tweet, i.e. that she has conflicting feelings.January 27, 2020 at 8:58 am #1203314452
Sex Education was submitted as Drama for the Emmys so likely will be here too
It was submitted as a comedy for the Emmys and other awards, but the Emmys in particular rejected that classification. I would not assume that BAFTA would be as dumb.January 27, 2020 at 12:50 am #1203313890
I am not expecting Claire Foy to be submitted, like the Jared Harris and John Lithgow flashback cameos last season. It did not sound to me like a full-fledged guest arc like Lithgow this season (and we shall still see if they even submit him).January 27, 2020 at 12:28 am #1203313872
The sound mixers are the worst. They just go with the biggest shows and are also infamously short on the draw. The worst was when they awarded that later-season Modern Family episode that took place entirely on a computer screen.
I always say that people are too influenced here by flashy titles of episodes nominated for directing and should take into account that the Gold Derby predictions centre does not have director names on the ballot like the real ones do. They knew that Nicole Kassell did the pilot, so that was going to be a leg up on the other nominated episode.January 27, 2020 at 12:04 am #1203313829
It is easier for me to search posts in the back-end. Thatcher did declare on November 23rd that 1917 was winning Best Picture, but Sam Mendes had fallen out of her nomination predictions for Best Director by December 31st.January 26, 2020 at 11:36 pm #1203313804
Remember that scene in The Good Dinosaur when they tripped on acid or something? What?January 26, 2020 at 11:29 pm #1203313797
No one seems to want to address how Klaus couldn’t even win its own country’s Animated Film Spanish Academy Goya. None of you find that odd?
None of us have seen the movie that beat it, so we are not about to disparage it. Speaking of which…January 26, 2020 at 12:35 am #1203305536
Happy to have been part of the two percent who called that Watchmen upset at DGA. I was the only Editor to have Nicole Kassell even in my top two! I put frontrunner Mark Mylod fourth, which is where the odds had Kassell.
Hard to get a read on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this season. A few months after the opposite result at the Emmys, there it goes losing ASC to The Handmaid’s Tale, which has not won a cinematography award since it first contended for one with its pilot at the 2017 Emmys.
Fleabag tied at CAS, proving that it only missed a sound mixing nomination at the Emmys because it peaked too late.January 26, 2020 at 12:20 am #1203305515
I need more evidence to predict that; we’re still too early in the season.
But, like, what kind of evidence? SAG has the only other industry-voted acting awards, so that is all that we are going to get. If you want to go beyond industry, it won a Critics’ Choice Award and got dueling Golden Globe nominations. And if you want to go beyond the actors’ branch, then your dissent is misdirected because that is the only support that we are arguing that it will get. Nobody is making the case that this is an academy show with writers, directors or below the line as far as I know.January 26, 2020 at 12:08 am #1203305490
Going all in on Netflix is new for the Annies, but pay no mind to their old-hat disregard for Pixar. Remember when Dreamworks bought all of their employees memberships, resulting in Kung Fu Panda winning ten Annies over WALL·E and Best Picture nominee Toy Story 3 being shut out? The Oscars are the opposite, most notably defaulting to Disney with Big Hero 6 the year of How to Train Your Dragon 2 and The Lego Movie.January 25, 2020 at 11:58 pm #1203305453
It’s funny how Adapted Screenplay was the most unpredictable above-the-line category until it wasn’t. I was right with at least one of my 2 predicted outcomes though: Little Women will sweep all the way to the Oscars.
Literally the two most important Adapted Screenplay precursors have not been awarded yet.
