I have a feeling we're gonna get a very random director nom. Maybe Lynne Ramsay for you were never really here?

A star is born will hopefully slay tomorrow. I have a feeling film that shan't be mentioned is gonna really overperform as well sad.gif

Predictions coming later tonight <3

The Favourite will (rightfully) clean up at the BAFTAs but I hope A Star is Born can at least grab a couple. Even if it's Bradley, that'd be good. Gaga will not be taking Best Actress over Olivia Colman.

Much like Bradley won't be winning over Freddie Mercury, unfortunately.

That's quite possibly true but I don't think it's a foregone conclusion either. There has been a bit of online backlash about BR winning at the Globes (not necessarily Rami I might add, but the film in general) so I'm curious about whether or not the other awards voters want to move away from that. BR has not been seen as a very deserving winner, even though Rami was very good in it.

My personal opinion is that Bradley acted circles around Rami and deserves the win more. Yes, Rami portrayed a larger than life character very well, but he also had a lot to work with, to base that performance on. Bradley's performance was tortured, emotional and raw. The fact that he also performed the songs live while Rami only mimes to Freddie also puts Bradley ahead for me.

I actually wasn't expecting Roma to beat The Favourite at Best Picture, given that's a British film! Surely looking very good at Best Picture for the Oscars, but then again, they have been known to throw a curveball before with regards to that thinking.gif Great for Letitia Wright as well, every performance of hers I've seen has been great.

I forgot to watch this oops, but doesn't look like there was any massive surprises (Winners here)
