    To address the previous points made: The Wife was sold in every country in the world. That’s pretty huge. Also, of course Close is a superior actress in general than Gaga. Even if you preferred Gaga’s performance or character, one can’t deny Close’s career and how much training and learning has gone into it.

    Alright already! We get it, you find schooling and explicit lessons to be fundamental to the profession (and, weirdly, paramount for even understanding acting). News flash – not everyone buys into that old-school thinking, and some of us even laugh at it.

    Did you take classes? Good for you! Not everyone needs to, or even should.

    Lady Gaga Glenn Close Olivia Colman Emily Blunt Yalitza Aparicio

    I’m curious what makes you so sure Blunt and Aparicio get in over McCarthy? McCarthy is tied with Gaga in the critics race (behind Colman and Colette) and has hit all major precursors so far including the thought to be more relevant drama globes category. Blunt is losing momentum I think for MPR and will likely get in supporting for AQP, but Aparicio hasn’t shown up anywhere but Critic’s Choice and I don’t see it happening for BAFTA.

    I personally am not a huge fan of Gaga’s performance in ASIB, but I was listening to THR roundtable discussion and didn’t realize that Gaga studied method acting (Lee Strasberg Method) for close to a decade..

    I don´t think Glenn´s career is being denied, actually I believe most of us agree she was robbed with Fatal Attraction.But in this case we just have a different favorite..

    No, on the last page of Part 10, someone implied that Close is inferior in general to Gaga as an actress.

    I have no idea what sort of “studying” any of these actresses have, nor am I really interested. Looking at the contenders this year, the hilarious part is that the best performance out of them all was given by the woman with no previous experience! The user I was responding to just has a penchant for bringing up lessons/training in the acting discussions as some sort of quality measure, which is what I was challenging.

    well, I don’t think we’re having a repeat of the 5 SAG line up at the Oscars. Blunt has the role, delivery, charm and narrative going on for her. She didn’t get in the critics boards cos MPR came so late in the game. Well, she can still be snubbed here but I feel like Aparicio is very safe. Her movie is said to be too good and she’s a newcomer. Newbies usually gets a slot almost every year. She doesn’t need more precursors in order to show up.

    Old school? You do realize every single SAG Best Actress nominee has studied acting, right? Gaga obviously hasn’t had as much schooling in it, given she more seriously has pursued singing. You think they’d be as good as they are without acting training? You seem to think that acting is a profession in which the worker does not need training to be skilled. Answer me something, for what jobs can one be on par with their colleagues without any education? An effective teacher studies pedagogy. A doctor certainly studies the human body. A plumber learns piping. Et cetera. Why would acting be any different?

    Now that MPR is out of BP and A quiet place is most likely in, I am taking Emily Blunt out of my predictions and keeping her in supporting. BAFTA will help me decide between Aparicio, Collette and Kidman for the last spot.

    1) Lady Gaga

    2) Olivia Colman

    3) Glenn Close

    4) Melissa McCarthy

    5) Collette (???)

    I think Yalitza would get that fifth spot. Depends on what the BAFTAS does.

    Method acting and Lee Strasberg’s method are two very different things.

    Method acting entails living as the character in your day to day life, what DDL does for his roles.

    Strasberg’s method entails calling upon your own past experiences to channel emotions and whatnot into performance. This is what Pacino, Hoffman, Jolie have studied.

    The internet will tell you they’re the same, but they aren’t
