It was just confirmed on On the Red carpet I’m watching on ABC. That’s so great!

I predict, not every nomination they got but EEAAO will sweep major categories.

Well since two actresses are competing against each other, that seems like a safe bet.

You knew what I meant. Then it could win 10/11. Still valid.

I am torn on Best Actress. Cate Blanchett gave the best performance, but she's already won twice and will be in the running again. This is likely Michelle Yeoh's only shot and I would be very happy if she won. Should we be rooting for the performance or the best story?

And there is little to no drama left in the show as EEAAO has swept everything, everywhere already.

Sorry, but it won't be nearly as lowly rated as two years ago when nobody had seen any of the nominees. There are two HUGE films nominated for BP and that will draw interest even if neither will win.
And Hollywood has always been liberal and was far more vocal about it 25 years ago. As I am forced to point out over and over again, the ratings for EVERYTHING on networkTV (except for football) is down, not because of liberal politics, but because of changing viewing habits.

I think there's zero chance Condon wins, but I would be delighted if you were right. She'd be my choice.

Wanna bet? I'm guessing viewership for this year's telecast will be up AT LEAST 10% from last year.

McDonough would be my choice for original Screenplay as well. I think it's a much better written script than EEAAO even if you liked the latter picture more, which I didn't.

I wouldn’t say zero chance. I know Lee got SAG, but still up in the air. And if Condon wins I wouldn’t say it were an upset.

I think it's going to be Bassett.

Condon still has a reasonable chance for the upset because Bassett and Jamie Lee Curtis will probably split a lot of votes for people who are voting for essentially a lifetime achievement/overdue oscar.

At what point in the ceremony, in terms of running time, do they usually award the Best Actress Oscar?

Nuts, a part of me was hoping for a Top Gun: Maverick upset (it did win the AARP award), but it turns out Tom Cruise is filming his new movie and won't be attending the Oscars, so since I won't get to see him accept I'll now be pissed if it wins.

At the very end, after Director and Actor.

No Oscar ceremony will ever be as bad as the 2021 show that was held at that small train station in LA. And pretty much all the movies nominated were streaming or limited release movies because of COVID. Hardly anyone was going to the movies back then. That show should have been cancelled.

Oh yes, the year Judas and the Black Messiah were nominated for their supporting work in Judas and the Black Messiah.
