Johansson may very well win the Oscar. Huge year for her. To people who say she doesn’t do much in teasers: i have heard she has 5 minute long, one take with camera on her face court-room monologue scene. It’s very baity role and emotional role. I’m not saying she is lock for the win or anything but the film is playing all festivals, it’s gonna get like 90 on metacritic (advanced buzz on the movie is great) and Netflix will push this hard like they did with Roma. It’s basically this year Manchester by the Sea. but there isnt Moonlight or LLL in race this time.
The role looks basic. She might be win but it won’t be for that court room scene. It’ll be for the same reasons Sandra Bullock won.August 20, 2019 at 8:54 am #1203031579
This looks like something I’ve seen many times before… I agree that Driver looks better than Johansson.August 17, 2019 at 8:34 am #1203027848

After Lady Bird, Gerwig and Ronan have a lot of hype going towards them. A lot of people loved their work, and would love to see them win Oscars. Hell, in a different year the two of them likely would’ve won. Unfortunately for Ronan, Frances McDormand was unstoppable that year(and Sally Hawkins was likely the runner up), and for Gerwig, original screenplay was filled with some extremely strong contenders. I personally believe Ronan has a real shot to win this year. I believe the prediction center is correct, and it’ll likely be a showdown between her and Cynthia Erivo. Gerwig, however will likely only be nominated. This is a story that’s been told many, many times, so that makes her screenplay unlikely to win anything. This is also just not the kind of film that wins best director. However, what’s important is that the film looks like it’ll be great. It’s based on a beloved story, has a top notch director/writer, and features some hugely talented individuals (and Emma Watson) in front of the camera
You’re measuring Ronan chances based on a one hit film Gerwig had. If you think she’ll win for little woman you’ll be very dissapointed. As for Erivo I won’t say anything until that film premieres but judging from that trailer, I’m not expecting anything good from it.August 13, 2019 at 9:03 pm #1203022979
1. Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story- Netflix) ** Box Office star, movie seems to have a lot of hype/BP contender. I’m still not sure this film will be flashy enough for a Best Actress win.
2. Charlize Theron (Fair and Balanced- Lionsgate) I’ve heard she’s really good in this and her transformation is spot on. The movie could be divisive, but I see this doing well with the actors branch.
3. Saoirse Ronan (Little Women- Sony)– Acting and below the line contender. I see Ronan steady getting nominated for everything but losing every single awards show.
4. Natalie Portman (Lucy in the Sky- Fox Searchlight)– October release date + TIFF premiere might be a good sign for this.
5. AWKWAFINA (The Farewell- A24) Diversity push + Box office indie hit + Critical darling.
6. Meryl Streep (The Laundromat- Netflix) Lead or supporting? I don’t know. But She’ll get in whereever she’s placed.
7. Felicity Jones (The Aeronauts- Amazon)– I don’t see more than one streaming contender happening. Scarjo, Streep and Jones…I don’t think so.
8. Cynthia Erivo (Harriet- Focus Features)- The movie looks like a big baity mess.
9. Renee ZellWeger (Judy- Roadside Attractions)– This doesn’t have much box office potential + I don’t think critics will be kind to it outside Renee of course.August 12, 2019 at 9:23 am #1203020607
People assume anything with Chalamet and Gerwig is a winner.
So many directors have critical hits and then make terrible movies afterwards or non existen films. I could see Greta being a Jason Reitman. And in regards to Chalamet, wasn’t beautiful boy a flop?August 12, 2019 at 9:15 am #1203020591
Downtown Abbey will be a contender for Hair and Makeup, Costumes and Production Design. that’s about it.August 12, 2019 at 9:11 am #1203020578
Pundits are so high on this little women film. If the other one was barely popular with the Academy, what makes people think this one will.August 12, 2019 at 9:08 am #1203020569
Alfre Woodard in Clemency is Annette Bening in Film Stars Don’t die in Liverpool 2.0. Premiere at festivals then comes out late in December and it’s completely forgotten.August 11, 2019 at 7:10 am #1203019299
I saw this :
and realized you’re probably just drunk posting on GoldDerby.
1) FYI: Fair and Balanced has had test screenings and Robbie and Theron have been getting raves.
2) last time I checked Luce was not doing well on limited release.
3) Zellwegers film looks like one of those flop biopics. I don’t see it making much money. It’ll probably get mixed reception and Roadside Attractions is a non factor at the Oscars.August 10, 2019 at 5:43 pm #1203018944
Actor: Adam Driver – Marriage Story
Actress: Renee Zellweger – Judy
Supporting Actor: Brad Pitt – Once Upon a Time in Hollywood OR Willem Dafoe – The Last Thing âge Wanted (if 2019)
Supporting Actress: Laura Dern – Marriage Story OR Octavia Spencer – Luce (if well campaigned)
Renee is more likely to win the razzie than the Oscar for Judy.August 10, 2019 at 5:34 pm #1203018939
I agree that supporting actress is a mess right now. WHERE THE HELL are Shuzhen Zhao (The Farewell) and Octavia Spencer (Luce)? I’m surprised to see that Octavia is not a contender.
I wouldn’t count out Lupita Nyong’o (Us) for Best Actress and Will Smith (Gemini Man) for Best Actor.
Meryl Streep will get in some kind of way. I definitely would love to see Taron Edgerton get nominated for Lead Actor.
Luce is flopping at the Box Office so I doubt Octavia will be a thing.
