Just fucking give it to Glenn. These things are always an ego boost. Many of us want her having this moment. We live in a world where flavor of the month actresses have a leading role Oscar. This is an official tantrum lol Every fucking body throws a tantrum over here for their faves. We already had the nice surprise of Colman winning. Let’s not have Colman swank Close.
And if I hear “it should be about the performance” I invite you to get a clue of how awards really work. Just look at who won the acting races this year (EVERYONE)October 28, 2020 at 7:13 am #1203807453
But that year was the first nomination for Adams in Best Actress (she’d been contending for Supporting Actress). I’m not talking about first nomination overall, it’s just that there always are first time nominees in this category.October 27, 2020 at 10:29 pm #1203807097
Well, at least those terrifying Hudson predictions can be put to rest. She is such a good singer but a mediocre actress based on previous work. Hopefully she’ll be a good Aretha.
Now, I just can’t buy this combination:
I went back and even since the early 90s (I’m too lazy to go even further back) there’s been at least one new nominee *in this category* every year. For example, two years ago we had 4 new nominees.
I don’t think we’ll have all repeats. A “new” actress is always welcome.October 27, 2020 at 8:06 am #1203805082
The Official Drama Thread. Love itOctober 26, 2020 at 8:58 pm #1203804538
I don’t know if Norbit counts, but back in the day when I started to read about awards there were so many gasps for Murphy. I know objectively that shouldn’t have mattered, and there were so many variables out of his reach but you know Tinseltown.October 26, 2020 at 8:55 pm #1203804534
This is the Best Actress thread in a nutshell. People go for blood here for some reason, and it makes every other thread look like a civil debate in comparison.
It’s tradition for sure. It’s just that, for example, during the Gaga-Close wars we started to knife each other around December. October is like a new frontier. But then again, this year has been anything but ordinary.
I just want the final lineup to be stronger than last year’s. Or the year before. The potential is there.October 26, 2020 at 5:55 pm #1203804325
Damn. None of these bitches’ movies is even out and you’re already tearing each others’ throats. LolOctober 25, 2020 at 12:09 pm #1203801726
Lupita won the GD Award here over all of the Oscar nominees and got the Academy dragged all over social media when she got snubbed. It’s not really unpopular to say she should have been the winner.
I got the feeling people supported Lupes’ nomination but wanted Awkwafina to win. Just a few here campaigned really hard for Queen L. I also do avoid social networks like the plague.October 25, 2020 at 11:16 am #1203801622
Fuck it, Lupita deserved not only the nomination, she deserved the win. How often do we get original characters in something other than your baity dramas? I rewatch and stan.October 25, 2020 at 11:08 am #1203801610
So if people don’t predict Viola Davis as an undeniable sweep, they’re utterly wrong? She may win (which will be nice given her legacy), but shitting on any other prediction (in October!) seems pretentious AF.October 25, 2020 at 8:26 am #1203801375
Yeah, Isabelle is 58. This is the MTV movie awards. Mess.October 22, 2020 at 9:10 am #1203796287
Oh God…I can only imagine… I don’t know if there will ever be a more perfect pairing than Cooper and Gaga (the thirst was just so f * real…)
I know. I’m all for some thirst, but those two really exceeded the boundaries of desperation. The fake tears and cheesy meme phrases really made me laugh throughout the whole season.October 22, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203796273
Do you all think Ma Rainey will have its 2 leads winning Best Actress and Best Actor? The last time it happened was almost 23 years ago.
I don’t think that’s happening. If they really want to honor the film they will go first with Viola who will give an impressive speech about who Boseman was. Was it Network the last time a posthumous nomination won in Lead?
