    I’m trying so hard to be gentle with Close stans but you guys are making it tough. I know this is going to be a difficult month but the less you try and convince everyone she is winning, the less it is going to sting in two weeks.

    I’m not a Close stan despite acting as such. I’m not delusional to not think she’s winning.

    I am pretty sure Close is winning Oscar. Just her road to the Oscar is not perfectly smooth- she is sole nomination for her movie, she had to share CC award with another actress and lost BAFTA yet to another actress. She is not sweeping, but again the only person out of 4 acting categories who is sweeping this season is Ali.

    She only won SAG because of the Globe and her speech. And her loss to Colman at Bafta, coupled with Colman’s darling speech will give her the momentum she needs. People who claim Close is a lock are funny.

    And the BAFTAs don’t even air here in the United States. But anyway, by now you guys should know that Dana Rimons and Pattycakes are both obviously trolls. Don’t take them seriously as users.

    This is the most assured acting category of the year. Glenn is winning. Case closed.

    I’m pretty sure Glenn is still winning.

    She won CC, SAG, and GG, and she might have lost BAFTA, but it doesn’t really matter at this point.

    Glenn has that overdue narrative at this point and this might be the Academy’s last chance at awarding her.

    With the exception of Julianne Moore for Still Alice and Brie Larson for Room (and her film had more nominations than The Wife), the actresses that won since 2000 had tons of support for their movies in general. (Iron Lady was nominated for Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor at the BAFTAs, which didn’t replicate at the Oscars). Glenn was the sole nominee for her film.

    BAFTA has the lowest matches with Oscars, with 5 diverges as opposed to 4 at SAG and Critics Choice and 1 for Golden Globes since 2000.

    SAG and Oscars seem to match up 3-4 times since 2010, and it gets better for Glenn-when one SAG winner doesn’t get nominated (sorry, Emily and Idris), which is when all of the other SAG winners win the Oscars.

    As for the Julie Christie-Marion Cotillard argument-Julie already had an Oscar from many years ago, while Marion wasn’t very well known. Glenn is WELL overdue, while Olivia was slightly better known than Marion around that time.

    BAFTAs also adored The Favorite, and England loved it in general, not to mention it made a lot of money in the UK ($17M), but elsewhere it’s underperforming. It also won BAFTAs in places where others are expected to win (Makeup/Hairstyling, Production Design, Screenplay).

    It also feels like Original Screenplay last year, where Three Billboards overperformed at BAFTAs, winning Best Feature, Best British Feature, etc., but Screenplay among them. But everyone was more leaning towards Get Out for Screenplay at the end due to winning critical awards at Critics Choice and WGA, and at the Oscars, Three Billboards won only Actress and Supporting Actor, while Get Out won Screenplay (and both losing to Shape of Water for Best Picture).

    BAFTAs don’t seem to care for Glenn as well-she only got her second BAFTA nom this year. They didn’t give the BAFTA to her despite her overdue factor-Christian Bale didn’t get it either despite not having a BAFTA win, losing in favor of Rami Malek playing a British icon.

    It also stands to reason that since Meryl Streep for Iron Lady, all Best Actress winners won for playing a fictional character.

    So overall, with these points in mind, Glenn Close is destined to win the Oscar for Best Actress on Feb 24. I hope Olivia can win the Oscar someday, but this year it’s going to Glenn.

    No, that’s Ali. Heck, even Rami. Colman has this.

    Ali and Rami are bigger locks though.

    We can at least agree on something. Ali has been winning every possible award so far. There is no way hes not winning.

    In terms of the other acting awards, anything can happen. None of the other three are solidly locked like Ali.

    Its either Close or Colman. I can see best actress going either way.

    The male races are over. Stick a fork in. Done. No way are Ali or Malek losing.

    Support Actress is prolly the most exciting to people around here cause its been all talk of King for so long but looking not so good now for her.

    Meanwhile, folks who don’t read these boards and think Close is a lock are the ones who will have their jaws on the floor come Oscar night. Well, not more than Close who we may need to keep on suicide watch following the ceremony.

    To add to what you said, the last lead actress to win the Oscar without winning SAG was Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady, but that was a Weinstein film, which was a studio known for it’s good campaigning tactics. In this case you’ve got Colman who isn’t even campaigning and has been in England this whole time. Her last minute BAFTA win is not going to make a difference, as the entire Academy knows that now is their chance to finally give Glenn an Oscar. Olivia is a fine actress who will undoubtedly have many more Oscar nominations in the future. Hell, if Glenn can win an Oscar at almost 72 years old, then Olivia still has plenty of other chances to win at some point in the future.

    The Crown isn’t that much of a hit. Ppl who have Netflix don’t even watch it.

    Y’all funny here lmao.
    Before the BAFTAs, everybody was like Close is a shoo in for the win, now and then that Colman has won the BA BAFTAs (as predicted) y’all are like, <<I’m not that sure Close is winning >>.

    I’m aware of Cotillard and all the stuff, but this ain’t happening for the simple reason that Christie was a previous winner. I’m really happy with Marion Cotillard winning at the end ( I’m French) and she’s our national treasure. To come back at the BAFTAs, they could have gave it to Close, but Colman is an established actress there, playing a royal figure in a british movie, all the odds were with her, no way she was losing that’s why we all knew Glenn Close was expected to lose. Besides most of the time they just align with the other precursors. Y’all just want Close to lose and this is the moment you’ve been waiting for to finally show which team you belong.

    Remember The King’s Speach swept the BAFTAs, it was their treasure, and they made sure everybody knows it. they love French productions ( The Artist says hi.) that’s why Cotillard and Riva won there. Viola Davis did that and all that, but Meryl played Thatcher please !!! Bullock and McConaughey weren’t even nominated. That was the few exceptions, most of the time, they follow the US pattern. That’s why we have complete sweeps.

    We’ve all seen what happened at the GG and SAG, these ppl want to reward Close. Colman winning the BAFTA isn’t changing nothing at all. The SAG could have easily gone to Gaga or the <<undeniable>> Colman. That was the last test for Close. She made it, there is no way she lose the Oscar, it’s not even imaginable lol, so i suggest you to chill.

    Of course i’ll be happy with who ever wins since i don’t take it very personal, but Glenn remains my personal favorite.
