Jennifer Hudson, "Respect"

Spencer was just such a weird movie, though, and badly produced. Diana is so well known, or believed to be so well known, that you can only stray so far in the visual storytelling. Plus Emma Corrin set the bar really, really high. I was keen to see the movie when it first came out, based on the rave reviews out of Europe. But I never saw it and the desire faded as I read more about it.

I read that David Selznick once said: don't fuck with a classic.

You can, but at your peril. If you can't stick close to material where it's easy for an audience to say 'but that didn't happen', even if they don't know what they're talking about, you better make a really good movie.

"Kristen Stewart, considered to be a front runner for her shape-shifting turn as Princess Diana in “Spencer,” failed to earn a nomination, while “King Richard” standout Aunjanue Ellis and “Belfast’s” Jamie Dornan also were snubbed. At the same time, Ruth Negga, who has been largely overlooked for her subtle work in “Passing” by other awards bodies, scored a nomination for best supporting actress, while Bradley Cooper earned a nod for his fiery turn as producer Jon Peters in “Licorice Pizza” — a performance that was high on impact, but light on screen time.

Affleck’s performance in “The Tender Bar” was also nominated by the GG’s and many critics also.

I’m sad Nicolas Cage didn’t get in for “Pig”. None of the three outlier performances for Lead Actor got recognized, but SAG tends to not recognize them because it is being voted on by actors vs critics or organizations etc.

I’m not shocked Stewart’s peers didn’t nominate her. Her performance was ridiculous and I’m sure many of them laughed at it behind her back.

Me too. "Respect" was a mess of a movie saved only by Hudson's performance. I thought I was going to see "Effie White IS Aretha Franklin" but I was impressed by how Hudson disappeared into the character onscreen. It wasn't mimicry, I saw someone portrayed who could be Aretha. Hudson is certainly not the world's greatest actress but her work in "Respect" was an achievement.

I agree. There were only a couple of moments, usually when she was shot from certain angles, that I was reminded that it was Chastain playing Tammy Faye. Most of the time, I forgot that it was her.

I think Kidman did a pretty good job as Lucille Ball. Everyone expects Lucille to be fun loving and likable like Lucy, but she was known for being a stone cold bitch behind the scenes. Nicole captured that pretty well.

I had no preconceived notion of what Patrizia Reggiani was like in real life, so Gaga's performance may have captured the essence of her pretty well. But there were times when it felt cartoonish. Not as cartoonish as Leto, but still.

If you take 50% of the domestic gross, and 25% of the foreign gross, House of Gucci still comes up short. Granted it did better than other adult films, but it was not a big money maker.

I think you're all a bit dumb about Kristen Stewart. She's had her biggest artistic successes with foreign and independent film makers. So obviously, that's going to limit her support. Spencer was pretty much a British production, in terms of talent. It doesn't leave her a large network of support when it comes to U.S. voting bodies like SAG.

Also, while it's inherently divisive, Spencer is most certainly NOT a SAG Award film - SAG members are all pretty middle of the road, broke, sad actors. I can say that because I know a lot of them and today marks the annual "The Passion of The SAG Award Voter" where they'll all be nailing themselves to crosses trying to get our sympathy for all the screeners they suddenly have to watch - in the worst, most annoying humblebrags ever.

I would be surprised if Affleck pulls an Oscar nomination - he’s not particularly well liked by the Acadrmy (see major Argo snub).

Mostly because The Tender Bar is kind of shit. Clooney and screenwriter Monahan really botch the transition from child to young adult - the actors look NOTHING alike. One minute he’s like 6 y.o. bowling with his uncle and 5 mins. later he’s getting humped by some rich bitch. It’s like two totally different films, one as engaging as the other is unending. I turned it off because I just didn’t care. It’s not really an Oscar worthy film and his performance isn’t SO great that he could ace that category as the only nom from the film.

Belfast is total shite. CODA is nice but it’s like an Afterschool Special. I couldn’t get past the 1st hour of Don’t Look Up which was overly smug and laugh-free. The Power of The Dog is masterful. JHud is great in Respect but deserved a better script (though no one really wants to know the real Aretha Franklin story which is why the film seemed without a narrative centre). I liked Passing but I did have to return to it multiple times, for some reason. Tick Tick Boom is a minor work - I didn’t watch past an hour of it because…my eyes were permanently rolled into the back of my head.

I really liked Swan Song with Udo Kier. Watch that.

R157 The viewing audience is so dispersed that nominations are more about what voters are watching than what they loved or respected. Being the Ricardos got the eyeballs of these viewers and its easy to talk about why it doesn't work but it is very entertaining. It's medium to not great Sorkin. I could shit on it all day, but I didn't once consider turning it off or get bored.

r17 Some series have a longer tail of viewers than others. Its possible the Matthew MacFayden nomination didn't happen because viewers hadn't caught up to the finale. The finale aired 3 weeks ago. The performance only stands out once the finale has been viewed and one can contemplate the performance over the season (or view some of the assembled clip scenes that have bounced around the internet). For the same reason Kevin Spacey wouldn't have won any awards for the Usual Suspects without the last 2 mins.

I can't picture the academy making Jennifer Hudson or Lady Gaga a two time oscar winner at this point. Neither Nicole or Jessica's performances have generated a whole lot of buzz . Kristin Stewart will be lucky to get a nomination, no fucking way if that happens are they going to compound the felony by rewarding her.

He was like; "Yeah, that's just as bad as when Kristen Stewart portrayed Princess Margaret in that film." Or; "Heck, I'm sorry you're too busy to hang out, I feel almost as sad as when I saw Kristen Stewart portray the Queen Mother in that film." It got on my nerves even though it was funny.

I guess if you live in the UK you’ve seen enough of this sort of thing and his is a very weak broth, indeed. Why is some of it in colour and some in b/w? That wasn’t consistent and didn’t make any sense. The colour bits looked like the NI Tourism Board’s showreel. And couldn’t even be bothered to get the film grain right - the whole thing looked so pristine. Caitriona Balfe deserves the attention and may yet walk away with it.

The key to Belfast is you’re seeing everything through the eyes of the kid, who isn’t a reliable narrator because he’s a little kid. So his parents are like glamorous movie/pop stars and John Wayne in one, and when he goes to shows and movies they pop vividly in color compared to his everyday life.

LOL...everyone acts like the Oscars and SAGs match up exactly.

They never do. Out of the 20 acting nominations possible, there's usually 5 or 6 minimum that differ between them.

Best Actor: Cumberbitch, Smith and Washington are pretty locked. Garfield seems likely. Bardem seems....unlikely

Best Actress: I don't think there are any locks here, tbh. It's all over the place this year. Colman, Kidman, Stewart, Chastain, Gaga are all still in it with Zegler, Hudson still possible and I'm gonna argue and say ther Cruz is still in there, too. It really depends if they can get enough Academy people to see the movie.

Best Supp Actor: Smit-McPhee seems to be the only lock. I think Hinds is likely despite not getting a SAG nod. Kotsur looks more and more like a very likely. Dornan, Leto, Cooper are still in the game. Frankly, I don't see Affleck getting enough love from the Academy to get a nom.

Best Supp Actress: Balfe, DeBose, Dunst seem like locks to me. And, despite not getting an individual SAG, I think Ellis is very likely unless Negga pushes her out. Blanchett just feels unlikely to me unless they want to throw Nightmare Alley a bone but it was such a huge non starter, maybe not.

Lately, the Academy has been throwing some wildcards into the mix so I'm gonna guess there will be a couple "where did THAT come from?" nominations this year.

Wrong. In the past twenty years or so, they've never gotten more than six wrong and those years were extreme outliers, like the year where they ignored almost everyone in American Hustle, or when Jennifer Connelly was put in lead for A Beautiful Mind and they almost completely whiffed the Supporting Actress category. They've been as accurate as 19/20 several times, getting 16 or 17 seems to be the standard, and their blind spots are obvious: foreign language performances and late-breaking contenders like Little Women or Phantom Thread.

McDormand has a couple problems: she has a more competitive category than Denzel, her movie hasn't been seen as widely as the others, and her performance straddles the line between lead and supporting.

Apparently SAG members are mostly bad actors who are just jealous and don't appreciate the subtlety and restraint shown by Stewart as she runs around Sandringham like a madwoman, hallucinating about Anne Boleyn and cutting herself. Some choice quotes:

[quote]The actors who are part of the Academy by and large are the best actors. . . . The Screen Actors Guild has over 10,000 members and, you can imagine, not all of them are Oscar winners or even nominees. Most of them, in fact, are actors who are auditioning for their next jobs, waiting and hoping for the opportunities that Kristen has had . . . . The SAGs have generally favoured sentiment and melodrama – actors love BIG ACTING. Kristen Stewart’s performances have often been restrained and contained.

[quote]It's interesting that the BAFTAs nominated Cate Blanchett for Don't Look up, while the SAGs nominated her for Nightmare Alley.

BAFTA's list is a longlist - I doubt Blanchett will get a nomination considering how BAFTA tilts towards British films. Expect Rebecca Hall to get a director nod ahead of Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Based on that list I would expect BAFTA to narrow their 6 nominees down to BALFE - BUCKLEY - DE BOSE - DUNST - NEGGA - ROBINSON

I didn't think Cate was anything special at all in Don't Look Up and she looked and acted like a drag queen in Nightmare Alley.

What's become of her? Didn't she used to be talented? Speaking of which, I recently re-watched The Talented Mr. Ripley because I'd just read the book and was shocked at Cate's horrendous overacting in that one. Compared to her, Gwyneth seems so natural and effortless.

R231, what's especially pathetic about Lainey's column is when she was trying to latch on to the #OscarsSoWhite movement (despite her own ugly history of let's just say unwokeness), the Academy is too elitist, too exclusive, etc.:

[quote]Because while it should be acknowledged that the Academy is moving forward, there are still members of the old guard who have some feelings about the fact that the Academy is growing too quickly. As Vanity Fair reports: But opening its doors wider has led some to criticize the Academy for abandoning its traditionally high standards of entrance.

[quote]Betty White just got into the Academy this year! She’s 91 years old! Sometimes “tradition” is just code for “exclusion”. To take it a step further, oftentimes “tradition” is code for “discrimination”. Everybody knows that there have always been fewer opportunities for people of colour and women and the differently abled and basically people who aren’t white and men and straight in the industry. With those lack of opportunities, what are the chances that they can meet those “high standards” if even Betty White had to wait 50 f-cking years!

But now, because she's shilling for the most basic white actress out there, the Academy's exclusivity is a good thing.

by Anonymousreply 248January 14, 2022 5:00 PM

Marcia Gay Harden really came out of absolutely nowhere that year to win (when you could still do that kind of thing in a non-Oscar Twitter world). I remember everyone predicting Kate Hudson who, I think, wore one of her mother’s old Oscar dresses to the ceremony that night (or maybe that was at the Golden Globes that year - who knows). Anyway, I was in Amsterdam watching the show late at night in this tiny kitchen of the old woman who owned the townhouse where we rented a room while on vacation, and you could tell from the clips shown that Marcia’s performance was the strongest out of the group. I instantly thought that after the clips and before the envelope was opened.

I would have been happy if Frances McDormand had won that year as well. She gives my favorite performance in Almost Famous.

R289, the closest winning campaign I could see to Chastain’s is Susan Sarandon’s. A well-respected actress competing against people who either already have been amply rewarded or people who just don’t seem quite right as Oscar-winning actors becomes almost a compromise pick. It’s not an exact comparison, and Sarandon had a better case (she had more of an overdue narrative than Chastain and a stronger movie), but that’s her most viable path.

R213 The problem with making blanket statements calling out people for being "wrong" about things is the fact that if you haven't actually done any homework to justify your position, then you look like an asshole.

In both 2001 and 2015 there were 7 differences out of 20 nominations between the SAG and Oscar nominees.

There were 6 differences in 2019, 2013, 2012, and 2003.

And, 5 differences in 2018, 2017 and 2007.

So, it's actually inaccurate to call 6 differences an outlier when in 9 out of the last 21 years, there have been 5 or more differences between the two awards.

And, since the Academy started adding more diversity to their membership, the differences between the two have grown. Since 2015, there's only been TWO years where there were only 3 differences (in 2016) and 4 differences last year. It's been averaging around....5 a year.

R11, I did. And I concur with you. The irony is that "Actor" and "Actress" categories would preclude any discussions about "Transgender" performers by virtue of avoiding specific gender terms.

I.e., calling, say, Laverne Cox an "Actress" is less contentious than placing her (I know) in the "Female Actor" column.

I have a feeling that Andrew Garfield will win for Tick…Tick…BOOM this year. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of enthusiasm for Will’s unlikable performance. Benedict Cumberbatch will be Garfield’s biggest competition.

His additional presence in Spider-Man and The Eyes of Tammy Faye gives voters more than one place to check in with his talent.

I don't think Will Smith is a serious actor, rather he's a movie star like Tammy Cruise. He clearly wants an Oscar though as he will occasional "go serious", usually in shitty movies like Concussion, Bright, Seven Pounds or Collateral Beauty .

I just finished watching "The Eyes of Tammy Faye," and could watch another two hours of the Bakker saga.

Jessica Chastain is tremendous, fabulous, perfect! She has to go from youthful naivete to hard-earned adult wisdom, with all the increasing material wealth and personal travails that accrued and brought the Bakkers down. Yet throughout, we see a woman who truly loved God and loved people as her faith teaches.

I can't see how the portrayals of Lucille Ball or Patrizia Reggiani can surpass Chastain as Tammy Faye.

R361 back. Finished "King Richard" (Amazon rental).

Will Smith is 100% believable as Richard Williams, but with a bit too much---for me---positive veneer as a husband, father, and coach given by the director. We learn about Richard's philandering and illegitimate children, but a wifely hug ends that very brief scene, so all is forgiven. They're a Family Team.

We see only a little of the irritating Father-Coach after the girls' successes, with his displaying signs to fans in the stands---though earlier we saw him harping to his family about staying humble, no bragging allowed.

But in the larger picture, Will as Richard comes across as a Black man who wants most to transcend his milieu, not to be regarded as a "ghetto [N-word]," not to be a failed father of victims of the street, but rather to be able to provide well and to see his children live to their potential.

"King" Richard---not referred to as such the entire movie---is further shown as savvy beyond the wiles and lures of other, and White, men, from coaches to sports lawyers to potential sponsors. This trait is emphasized in the credit sequence.

Finally, the film makes clear that this journey is not one of an Everyman and His Progeny. It is specifically presented as a momentous accomplishment by a Black American man and his daughters, framed by televised reports of the beating of Rodney King and the decorated cornrows of Venus as she plays #1-ranked Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario.

So now I need to go see "TPotD" and "TT...B" for Benedict and Andrew, respectively.

I don’t think Smith will win this year. No one seems to be passionate about his performance (or the film, necessarily which, sight unseen, was being heralded as something a bit different than the finished product).

Lainey has pivoted back to a SAG nomination being significant, now that she's shilling for Ben Affleck (or, more likely, JLo). When SAG snubs KStew, they're a bunch of jealous losers. But when they recognize Dear Ben, well, those are his PEERS who RESPECT him. I'd love to ask her if the checks are worth the embarrassment.

[quote]I’ve been saying for weeks that Ben is a possibility for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination and while he’s certainly not one of the frontrunners, his chances definitely got better last week when the Screen Actors Guild included him on their list for his performance in The Tender Bar, which is excellent. Again, this doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll get that Oscar call, but it’s an indication of how he’s perceived among his peers. It’s one thing, the public perception of Ben Affleck, but whatever his public image is, it’s not entirely matched within the industry. He’s been working a long time, he has worked with a LOT of people, some pretty influential people in the business. And that SAG nomination shows that there’s a lot of goodwill for Ben in those circles. The Oscar Academy’s actors’ voting branch is much smaller than SAG membership, but within that more narrow lane of actors, and more successful ones – on the measurement of general recognition and opportunity of work – I can’t imagine that he’s any less embraced in those circles.

R382 Jennifer Hudson is nominated not McDormand. Do you work for Ms. Chastain?

by Anonymousreply 382January 22, 2022 7:02 AM

Prediction: Lady Gaga, House of Gucci vs. Nicole Kidman, Being the Ricardos Long Shot: Jennifer Hudson, Respect

Reasons why I think Lady Gaga could win: 1) The membership love the film. An ensemble nomination--especially for a panned film that was essentially a surprise nomination--indicates strength for the appreciation they have for her. It's not the be all/end all, though. Also, they nominated Jared Leto in a widely panned performance, which indicates further "strength." It's the most "populist" film of the five nominees, which will help her. Also, Gaga has never won a SAG for feature film.

However, Kidman has history on her side: If we go back and look at the Globe winners who lost SAG, we see a lot of examples early on. However, starting with Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich, there was a long list of Globe winners who also snagged the SAG. It wasn't until 2008 when Streep beat Winslet. However, it was an anomaly because Winslet was up for two different films. She won two feature Globes (Revolutionary Road in lead and The Reader in supporting). She only won the SAG for The Reader (in supporting), but that was shaping up to be her "Oscar role" (in lead). Streep, who hadn't won a SAG since they began 14 years prior, was honoured with an award, which the acting body often did in tight races (give the edge to the unawarded veteran). 2011 Globe Winner Streep would lose the SAG three years later to Viola Davis, partly because 1) She had just won a SAG, 2) The Help was a populist film nominated for a total of four awards including ensemble, 3) Viola Davis was shaping up to be one of the preeminent actors of her generation, as well as her race, and 4) Streep's performance wasn't beloved. Globe winner Andra Day wasn't nominated for SAG in 2020, so she couldn't win.

Kidman has also never won a SAG for feature length film before. In some ways, it may be "her time," much like Denzel Washington winning in 2015, even though Casey Affleck was the favourite throughout the award season and ended up winning Oscar. Kidman was considered box-office poison for a while and then turned her career around taking on character roles, that were often sympathetic and more mainstream. Critics reconsidered her place in Hollywood after Big Little Lies came out and she has been showing a lot of strength since then. Bardem also getting nominated indicates "strength" for the film beyond her performance.

I could see Gaga winning SAG, but Kidman taking BAFTA and winning Oscar. I could also see Kidman making a clean sweep.

I'll predict Kidman, just because she hasn't won SAG before, and the House of Gucci really isn't The Help (and Gaga isn't Viola Davis).

Because JC has TF down pat. But more than that, Chastain has a gift for nuance in her facial expressions, in her eyes (heh), in her "chipper" over loneliness. As someone posted above, the scene with the remote-broadcast interview with an AIDS patient is an Oscar-worthy micro-tour de force, with Chastain channeling Tammy Faye's forthright yet almost child-like love and acceptance not just of people, but of the entire human condition. (That interviewed man is still alive and shown in the credits.)

To summarize my "review" posts of Jessica Chastain in "GEoFF":

Many, maybe most, of us here think of Tammy Faye Bakker as a living caricature, a religious scammer with garish makeup, painted talons, and black mascara dripping with her tears.

Chastain's challenge was to show us the woman, not the carnival portrait. Yes, we get the excess makeup, the painted fingernails that dare not open a Coke can, the Big Hair, but we also get the human being who KNOWS, who HEARS the snickers, the criticism, the rumors, and who takes her faith and natural gumption and walks right up to them and says, "Hi! My name's Tammy Faye. What's yours?"

In retrospect, I think Jessica Chastain's and ultimately Tammy Faye Bakker's triumph is that by movie's end OUR humanity is touched. And we accept.

She'd be my pick for a win this year (haven't seen Cruz yet), but my guess is that Kidman will go all the way. Globe winners have been taking the Oscar lately in the Best Actress category, even in special instances where they miss the SAG win (unless they just completely miss the nomination like Andra Day).

Predicted nominees: Olivia Colman, Penelope Cruz, Gaga, Nicole Kidman

Chastain will have to battle it out with Stewart and Zegler for that last slot. It's going to be tough, especially if Stewart gets the BAFTA nomination.

Wunmi Mosaka has a Manchester accent, because she's lived in Manchester since the age of 1.

Bukky Bakray has a typical London accent, because she was born and grew up in London.

Judi Dench won BAFTA for Iris, Halle Berry wasn't nominated that year because Monster's Ball hadn't been released, and she got nominated the following year

Scarlett Johansson won BAFTA for Lost In Translation - Charlize wasn't nominated because Monster hadn't been released, and she got nominated the following year

Imelda Staunton won BAFTA for Vera Drake - Million Dollar Baby didn't get any nominations, that year or the following year,

Carey Mulligan won for An Education - The Blind Side was never nominated.

Emmanuelle Riva won for Amour, beating Jennifer Lawrence

And that's it!

Really? So really just three times technically.

And two of those three times it was a huge Hollywood star (Sandy and JLaw) who won Oscar over European BAFTA winning actresses.

Interesting. Very, very interesting. Big huge stars.

In the shallow, sha-ha-ha-ha-low...

R431 Well it ain't aligning this year because I'm winning and I'm not eligible for the Oscar.

The Oscar's will ignore me next year.

R430, you haven’t seen Renate Reinsve’s performance yet? It’s highly possible she’ll win.

by Anonymousreply 434February 4, 2022 1:59 PM

R434 I loved her film and she was great in it. No I don't think she'll win.

Where is Renate’s movie available to stream?

R436 Not sure, but it's being released in theatres all over North America this week.

I can't believe that Jamie Dornan wasn't nominated for Belfast.

[quote]I can't believe that Jamie Dornan wasn't nominated for Belfast.

It's been suggested the 2 automatic nominations were Kodi Smit McPhee and Ciaran Hinds, and the jury didn't like Dornan enough.

Quiz: The actor with the most BAFTA best supporting actor nominations died of AIDS. Who was he? He had 3 wins out of 7 nominations.

by Anonymousreply 439February 4, 2022 6:19 PM

I think Kodi and Troy Kotsur were the top two.

by Anonymousreply 440February 4, 2022 6:32 PM

Yaas Woody Norman got nominated! Seems difficult but I hope he wins. Kodi SMP (and Power of the Dog) were underwhelming.

But as of 2020, BAFTA might as well be a brand new awards show. Previous trends don't apply.

by Anonymousreply 442February 4, 2022 8:20 PM

That would be Denholm Elliott, r439.

by Anonymousreply 443February 5, 2022 5:03 AM

I can't believe only the top two vote getters actually get a nomination.

That's so fucking dumb.

I could see saving ONE slot for a jury selection.

It should also be noted that last year, BAFTA pretty much went with the most "popular" for the winners, despite the more niche path to nominations.

So Gaga it is for Oscar, if Scanlan can't beat her.

But, even then, Gaga is probably winning SAG (Kidman has a slight chance).

Kidman won the Drama Globe; Zegler won the C/M Globe and NBR; Colman won one of the lead Gotham awards; and Cruz won Venice/LAFCA/NSFC. In this group alone, Kidman's win has the most capital. Then, if Gaga wins SAG (having won NYFCC) and Scanlan or Gaga wins BAFTA, the only thing really stopping Gaga from winning Oscar is if she isn't nominated (unlikely) or The Academy falls in love with Being the Ricardos (possible, but seemingly improbable). She essentially has to lose SAG and/or BAFTA for Kidman to have a chance (which is already remote).

My prediction for nominees:

1. Gaga (a lock)

2. Kidman (it would be--I think--unprecedented for her to miss here, having won the Drama Globe)

3. Colman (she missed at BAFTA, but the AMPAS love her and she is one of the "easier" categories for them to recognise The Lost Daughter, even if the whole project is a bit messy)

4. Cruz (she missed in some of the most important places--Globes, SAG, BAFTA--which is damning, but she also scored a telling trifecta; no actress to take Venice/LAFCA/NSFC has missed an Oscar nod)

5. Haim, Stewart, Zegler, or Chastain (I can't see any of them for various reasons, but somebody has got to get in)

a. Haim (the BAFTA nod not only suggested she is still in the game, but she was probably top 2, which is quite telling; the Globe loss and "controversy" won't help, but she also has the advantage of not playing a popular icon this year)

b. Stewart (the industry is cool on this film and she missed BAFTA (as well as SAG), which wasn't encouraging after playing The People's Princess)

c. Zegler (she has won some major awards, but her movie has kind of fizzled; a nomination for her would add more diversity, which the AMPAS might want to do)

d. Chastain (this is one of my favourite performances for this category, but she has little going for her in terms of wins and she missed BAFTA like most of her other major competitors).

The race would be more interesting if one of the last four had a chance at a win, which doesn't seem likely.

Correction: Kidman bought the drama Globe

by Anonymousreply 446February 5, 2022 6:09 AM

If you're going to make a purchase during awards season, R446, the return on investment is quite good (fifth Oscar nomination ain't a bad level to make).

by Anonymousreply 447February 5, 2022 6:13 AM

Kidman (or her staff) thanked the HFPA for her nomination on instagram. Very few if any other people did that. So they rewarded her.

R445 Honey you forgot me!

I know my performance is only adequate but I play the iconic Aretha Franklin.

Oh gawd, I’m a wreck after that live Zoom Q&A. Eddie Redmayne and Andrew Garfield were just so sweet together. Andrew does lay on the platitudes about art and work way too thick but they’re heartfelt platitudes so I can’t be too cranky about him.

Will Smith gives the kind of dumb-but-wise-daddy tricked out performance voters cream over. It will probably be Cumberbatch for the SAG, but Smith for the Oscar.

by Anonymousreply 451February 7, 2022 2:24 PM

Have you posters watched "Being the Ricardos"?! There is no way Kidman, just by lowering her usual voice, gave a better performance; showed more character growth (her Lucille is one-note "I'm the Boss here, fellas!"); displayed more humanity; or gave the audience any revealing insight to engender sympathy or even empathy; than did Jessica Chastain.

Oh, but Nicole and Olivia are "serious AC-TORS," and must be lauded!

London Critics award Olivia Colman and Benedict Cumberbatch best actress and actor, and give Tilda Swinton and Andrew Garfield best British actress and actor, despite Olivia and Benedict also being British.

Hmmm.....where's that asshole that gave me crap for saying the SAGS and Oscars don't always match up?

HUGE discrepancies between the two this year...8 differences between the two groups in the 4 acting categories.

I had to leave early from a virtual SAG-AFTRA Q&A with cast members of Don’t Look Up moderated by David O. Russell, of all people. His “enthusiasm” for the film was downright embarrassing. And it’s very clear that he is quite an asshole.

I just voted. Chastain/Garfield/Balfe/Smit-McPhee/cast of Belfast. And Murray Bartlett for The White Lotus.
