    I’m sad that Timothée Chalamet didn’t win but glad to see Frances McDormand. That Oprah speech was great.

    My favorite moment of the whole thing was watching Kelly Clarkson realize she was standing near Meryl Streep.

    I didn't expect Timothée Chalamet to win, the GG voters obviously didn't like CMBYN that much considering how few nominations it had.

    Is that why Sufjan wasn't nominated?

    I am surprised Gary Oldman won because the movie is awful.
    Whoever directed it should be escorted out of the premises.

    I actually liked everything about the movie except the scene before the ending.. when he is on public transport/the tube. Kind of cringe-worthy and an easy out.

    CMBYN needs some momentum and fast. It's odds are falling.

    Well, one of Chalamet’s potential rivals hit the dirt today.

    No Oscar nod for you, James Franco. You can fuck off now.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    I think Franco will be nominated after all. It's kind of a lock along with Chalamet, Day-Lewis and Oldman.

    Did anyone else watch the Critics Choice Awards, last night? Seemed to follow exactly the same pattern as the Golden Globes, other than The Shape of Water winning Best Picture instead of Three Billboards.

    James Franco won't be nominated in this climate. And he was in my third spot. We know Chalamet and Oldman are a lock for nominations.
    What sucks for The Disaster Artist is that it was such a good film and he done ruined it for everyone. No Academy Awards date for Tommy Wiseau

    What this does, however, is open the race up to someone like Daniel Day-Lewis or Hugh Jackman or Denzel and maybe even Tom Hanks.. who were all teetering around that next-in spot.

    We're in a stagnated period, tho, with so much time left until the Oscars. Three Billboards is just sitting over the whole awards circuit like a block of humid air. Oscar loves its backlash voting. If there's a film that already thinks it won the Oscar... The Shape of Water or Dunkirk/Darkest Hour going to come in and take it.

    Good thing for fans of Lady Bird and Get Out is that they got in at DGAs. And that voting was done before the Globes, I think. So there was already movement to get Greta in for directing pre-Portman.

    CMBYN is a casualty of war this year. Think about Brokeback Mountain. Everyone was talking about that film. There were parodies. No one wants to be made fun of but when you're that popular to be parodied. CMBYN doesn't even seem to have the heft to get made fun of in the mainstream.
    And then we have Moonlight. Barry Jenkins was on every show that would have him. He was all over CBS' fleet of talk shows and on almost all the PBS Shows. He was getting so much buzz, so much press. Luca is not getting that. And what little he or the others do get is either back in October and November or just online.

    So where can Chalamet get a win? People think I'm crazy but I think at BAFTA. Oldman has already won a lot of BAFTAs. It's the one award show that hasn't dissed him. But BAFTA loves all the things that CMBYN has going for it.

    Complete List of BAFTA NOMINATIONS

    I'm not going to copy and paste the whole thing, but there are a few items of interest.

    1. For me, Gods Own Country getting in for Best British Film is great!! I hope this gets it a good distributor so I can finally see it!
    2. THANK U BAFTA for nominating my lady Kristin Scott Thomas in Supporting!
    3. Judi Dench didn't get in???? What the what?
    4. Annette Bening and Jamie Bell did get in!!??
    5. *Really was expecting Greta to get in directing at BAFTA. Sigh.

    *Mind you, I don't really think Lady Bird is as huge an achievement in directing. It's a lovely film but not particularly showy in its direction or photography. But obviously, if any woman is going to be nominated she has the best shot and I hope she does get in .. It wouldn't be the first time in Oscar history a movie won or got nominated for other reasons than what is being played on the screen.
