"Excited to see this. The film is actually opening at one my local drive-in theaters this weekend!" -乔治·P

“为什么每次中期预算的电影,这些天看起来不完全一样的。他们似乎却无心看特殊。在同一平面,过于明亮的外观,这样所有其他电影今天。当你的电影*容貌*指示 -对视频......” -格伦

Who Will Win?

As we've been telling you for a full year, that this is格伦 Close's to lose.Many didn't believe us but here we are.She could still lose of course but we hope she doesn't.Only Olivia Colman looks like a possible spoiler this late in the game.

Who Should Win?

Opinions will vary, as they well should, in acting categories if you nominated great people (and this is a very strong category).I'm still undecided:Melissa, Olivia, or Glenn?But I would vote for Glenn due to her Oscar history AND the quality of this performance.

Who Was Left Out?

We weep forToni Collettethough a nomination forHereditarywas always a longshot given the horror genre.The dread sixth spot likely fell toEmily BluntMary Poppins Returns) who has been there many times before.When will she finally get in?
