    Yeh, I agree. I said lol because in retrospect it's so funny that it's been so long and the category issues still aren't perfect.

    To be honest, there was a bit of controversy with 'Get Out', but I thought it made perfect sense.

    Get Out was at least satirical. Most of the comedic stuff in Us comes from Winston Duke. Even then, there's no way the HFPA would believe for a second that Lupita deserves to be in the "Comedy/Musical" category because nothing about her performance is comedic. And Universal would be dumb for doing that anyways since she would actually make the Drama lineup unlike Daniel Kaluuya and Get Out for Picture as a whole.

    I don’t think she would actually/easily make the Drama lineup. HFPA usually isn’t receptive to films like Us. Being a campaigning star is in her favor, but the category potentially has a lot of campaigning stars

    Which ones in this race? Erivo obviously. Then Jones, Adams, Portman, Ronan, Zellweger... If you believe Jones and Adams are non-factors (and you personally believe Portman goes nowhere) then who else with a lot of star power takes over Lupita in that category?

    Wouldn’t discount Portman. Unlike Vox Lux, she’ll have better role and studio this time

    Theron could go Drama, as well.

    So that would leave Erivo, Portman, Ronan, Zellweger and Nyong'o. With Stewart as alt and Adams as possible filler if it becomes absolutely dire. Which is all possible, ofc.

    Either way, she would have a better shot in the Drama category than Kaluuya did for an understated performance.

    She has a better shot at Globes than SAG at least.

    And I am beginning to believe Felicity Jones should be taken more seriously

    Ehhh I actually think SAG is her most likely precursor. It's the type of populist performance that a lot of voters would put at #1 from a widely seen movie.

    I also think Jones could be a possibility now.

    The Cinemascore isn’t promising for SAG basics

    That B Cinemascore? That's not necessarily alienating. It's a polarising movie but not an inaccessible one. Gone Girl also had a "B" and The Girl on the Train had a B-.

    Not very usual for B Cinemascore films translate into SAG. Especially as they get more basic and broad. If the year ends up as tough as it looks, might be hard road for Lupita. She’d have to really take advantage of the early release

    Sure, but you could say Gone Girl underperformed seeing as how it missed Ensemble. That film also managed a near 5x multiplier despite the Cinemascore. Us had legs that actually feel in line with it’s Cinemascore, it really does not strike me as something SAG basics are going to respond well to.

    I think she gets a Globe nom if she campaigns enough for it and SAG goes with contenders that have fresh buzz and more basic options.

    Well Gone Girl underperformed everywhere and looking at the Ensemble noms that year, it makes sense that it missed to all Picture contenders that were much stronger and showier (give or take Theory of Everything but that had the Actor frontrunner).

    The concerns are valid but I still think Lupita would have a good shot for a nod here. Even people who didn't like the film had all around praise for her.

    01. Cynthia Erivo, Harriet
    02. Saoirse Ronan, Little Women
    03. Thomasin McKenzie, Jojo Rabbit
    04. Felicity Jones, The Aeronauts
    05. Awkwafina, The Farewell

    Feels like this line-up is super young.

    It is, but there aren’t really old options. Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Stewart, and Natalie Portman are all young as well, and even Charlize Theron and Amy Adams are still in their early 40s. The only semi-plausible options who are 50 or older are Streep, Mirren, and Zellweger (who is barely a semi-plausible choice).
