The blogger community decided early on that this was going to be the best actress winner, but this one may not end up as successfully as their similar campaign for Gary Oldman did. The film looks routine, and I don't see anything in Erivo's reviews to indicate anything beyond a rote chanceless nomination.
Agreed. Erivo's chances seem a bit better this week than last week though. Natalie Portman's Lucy in the Sky is being roundly-panned while Scarlett Johansson decided the best thing to do this week would be to defend Woody Allen and pledge to work with him again, in just another series of comments that will follow her around.
