Final Nomination Predictions
Amy Adams "Vice"
Regina King "If Beale Street Could Talk"
Margot Robbie "Mary, Queen of Scots"
Emma Stone "The Favourite"
Rachel Weisz "The Favourite"
Other Contenders - Claire Foy "First Man", Emily Blunt "A Quiet Place", Michelle Yeoh "Crazy Rich Asians", Marina De Tavira "Roma"
Commentary - I feel like three are safe: Adams, Weisz, and Stone. They all have the quartet of SAG, BAFTA, Globe, and Critics Choice. Regina King's Globe and Critics Choice wins keep her in the race, the way it did Sylvester Stallone. But those who think she is still a slam dunk to win, without SAG and BAFTA, are falling into the same trap they did with Stallone. I think she is in for the nomination, and if SAG and BAFTA split then there is a chance she could still take the prize. Finally, I am sticking with Margot Robbie. I have bet against her twice, and she has proven she can make it in the race. Claire Foy has the Globe, BAFTA, and Critics Choice, Emily Blunt has SAG, and Michelle Yeoh is a legend. But Margot Robbie has both SAG and BAFTA, which means that while critics have ignored the performance, the industry has embraced it. There is clearly a lot of leftover love for Robbie following I, Tonya last year, and while the film is so-so, no one can deny her performance is great. I think she pulls off an upset nod once again.
