Tony/Gaga on narrative
Kanye by locking down the rap bloc
Taylor, Jon, or Billie as the “consensus” pick (Taylor is a longshot here, but I don’t think she can be ruled out as long as she’s the likeliest one to win votes from the country crowd)
I don’t really see it for the other five.November 22, 2021 at 7:11 pm #1204596518
Carly Pearce is helping to announce the nominees and we don’t even have her in the prediction center at all. RIP.
I hope she gets Album / Song nominations; they’d be very well deserved.November 3, 2021 at 10:50 am #1204555068
I don’t really like that several albums are listed in multiple categories. I’m wasting slots listing the same album in two genres just to try to make sure the album gets nominated in one.
And Kacey Musgraves doesn’t belong in Country Album but will almost certainly be nominated if she’s on the ballot there.September 27, 2021 at 10:18 pm #1204489598
Frances was the heart and soul of the Best Picture winner, and she won over a split field where two major precursors were divided by two black women in less acclaimed films with less passion behind them.
That said, I think Frances would still have won even if Davis had won the Globe on top of SAG.September 20, 2021 at 12:31 pm #1204475327

Please consider adding Wolfwalkers to Best Picture and Original Screenplay; the best animated film of the year deserves to be an option in these categories.April 20, 2020 at 10:46 am #1203437071
I think Ashley McBryde is a lock for a BNA nom. I’d really love to see “Sparrow” break in to the SOTY lineup, too.
What are the rules regarding resubmissions? Can Taylor try getting “Soon You’ll Get Better” nominated again, or would that only be possible if she submitted a live recording?June 11, 2019 at 11:29 am #1202933036
I couldn’t find the log-in button on my iphone. I managed to locate it when using my ipad, but it’s not in the same place on my phone.
Also noticed that a bunch of the coding used to embed links is messed up in the articles on the main page.July 20, 2018 at 12:00 pm #1202590975
Hooper’s last three movies have had Oscar winning performances. I’m gonna keep my eye on this but at the same time….this is a strange choice, and Taylor Swift is the kind of casting choice you’re forced to make to get funding.
Hooper and Swift seem to have a good relationship, considering he nearly cast her in Les Mis (Redmayne did a screen test with her and was very complimentary of her work) and he recently attended her current tour. And let’s not act like a film adaptation of a musical as successful as Cats couldn’t have gotten funding without casting a pop star.
Featuring in a musical about cats is probably the most on-brand thing that Swift has ever done. She (and her pets) will probably be all over the promo campaign for this, lmao.
I know they haven’t announced her role yet, but I’ve seen some speculation that she could be in for Victoria… which is the same part Andrew Lloyd Webber said he wrote a new song for. I guess he’ll use her to try to win his second Oscar the way he used Madonna to win his first.January 28, 2018 at 12:58 am #1202480714
I think perhaps he could’ve won for A Beautiful Mind, but I’m not sure about other nominations. A Master & Commander nomination might’ve been possible, but Johnny Depp was also in the mix for Pirates of the Caribbean that year and I doubt they would’ve nominated two ship captain performances.
I suppose I don’t have to worry about his presence in Boy Erased hurting the film’s chances; Les Miserables scored plenty of nominations and wins despite him.January 23, 2018 at 12:31 pm #1202476541
Is Victoria & Abdul considered failed Oscar bait if it was intended to be an Oscar vehicle for Dench and she didn’t get nominated?January 23, 2018 at 9:28 am #1202476219
Don’t want repeat people who have been mentioned, so I’ll just add:

The Duchess was clearly meant to be a much bigger awards contender than just costume design.December 15, 2017 at 3:35 pm #1202441366
I realised Gwyneth Paltrow misses a Tony. lmao Imagine if she gets one. It’ll be ridiculous to be called a “queen of acting”.
Cate Blanchett is doing theatre and is already a Tony nominee, so hopefully she wins one soon. She should do TV as well, but that’s easier; one TV film or miniseries in which she gives a usual stunning performance and she’s there.
Kate Winslet should rly consider going after a Tony. Not only will she win a crown, but she’ll be an EGOT winner.
Interestingly, Neil Patrick Harris and Cynthia Nixon miss an Oscar. I doubt Nixon will ever do something Oscar-worthy, but I don’t rly find NPH possible to win an Oscar either.
I don’t think Blanchett’s route to an Emmy is as easy as you suggest, if she goes for a TV movie or mini-series. Maybe a decade or more ago, she could have coasted to an easy win based on her rep as an acclaimed movie actress. But we are living in the period of Peak Television. The Emmy Races for TV Movie and Mini-Series are harder than many Oscar races now. Blanchett could have given one of her very best performances, and still lost in this year’s stacked field that Nicole Kidman won for with Big Little Lies. Blanchett’s too far away at the moment.
Speaking of Kidman, I agree with posts suggesting she has one of the best chances to triple crown, considering her theatre work has been strongly recieved and won major awards and nominations for her.
Kate Winslet knows all about EGOT and triple crown. She talks about it in interviews a lot. But she has no professional theatre experience, so there’s no guarantee that she’ll translate well to stage (Julianne Moore got hammered by critics for her broadway debut. So did Jessica Chastain). Even some of our most acclaimed movie actresses don’t translate well to stage, so I wouldn’t worry about Paltrow winning a Tony any time soon, or even ever.
Blanchett would’ve lost to Kidman (anyone would have), but in almost any other year, Blanchett would be Kidman.Not now
