Absolutely gutted that Adam didn’t get the Golden Globe this year.
Pipped to the trophy by Joaquin Phoenix, which I can understand after seeing the Joker, but to be honest, I thought Adam’s performance in Marriage Story was superior. Unfortunately, I can’t say that without sounding a bit biased.
Anyway, onto the next big one, the BAFTA’s, and Marriage Story has picked up another 6 nominations.
As I suspected, Adam has got a nomination for leading actor, and yes, so has Joaquin Phoenix, but I’m hoping that the BAFTA’s and the Oscars will be a little kinder to Adam.
Marriage Story is the kind of film that is more to their taste. Super heroes and villains rarely get a look in and when it comes to the Oscars, The Joker has already seen an Oscar in the past with Heath Ledger.
Could he make history by claiming two Oscars for two different actors? I’m hoping not but I suspect he will.
Scarlett Johansson has picked up a nomination for Leading Actress but I suspect this title will be dominated at both the BAFTA’s and the Oscars by Renee Zellweger for her performance in Judy.
I haven’t seen Judy. I’m not a huge fan of Renee Zellweger and when I saw the trailer for the film, her performance made my skin crawl, so I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch it. I have had plenty of people tell me that she’s actually really good so I will have to see it at some point, I’m just not in any hurry.
Laura Dern has picked up another nomination for Supporting Actress.
Noah Baumbach, who also directed Marriage Story has picked up a nomination for Original Screenplay.
Douglas Aibel and Francine Maisler have picked up a nomination for their Casting of Marriage Story and I think this is a well deserved nomination. The whole cast for this film are amazing and really work together well.
Finally, John Williams, the GOD of film music, has picked up a nomination for Original Score.
He has never actually won a BAFTA for a particular score, but he has been awarded the Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music at the BAFTA’s.
It would be nice to see him actually pick one up for Star Wars.
He won an Oscar back in 1978 for his original Star Wars score which has become iconic and he has worked on every single Star Wars movie since. I really hope he picks up a nomination and actually wins for his score in the final film, we’ll just have to wait and see!
Speaking of John Williams…. did you catch his cameo role in Rise of Skywalker?. A very brief appearance as a bartender, blink and you’ll miss him!
So, racking up the nominations and wins for both Adam and Joaquin, it’s a close run thing on the nominations with Adam totalling 48 and Joaquin totalling 41
When it comes to the wins, Adam has picked up a staggering 27 wins, while Joaquin has only won 6. He keeps getting pipped to the post by Adam.
So the BAFTA’s and the Oscars have become a little bit of a competition, and it would seem that Adam and Joaquin have built a bit of a camaraderie about it all.
Nominations for the Oscars are next week. Stay posted.
