I think "The Stars" chances are very good, especially with all the good press she has gotten lately. I also. Think Kelly presenting is a very good indication. Anyhow, of course things can go either way, but here is to positive vibes. :wink:
This.
Mariah was in the spotlight over Christmas, when most voters send in their ballots.

It's interesting that Kelly is presenting....
1) she is in the cast of the "the star" movie
2) she idolizes Mariah
I think it's a good sign tbh

in 2018

Merry Christmas will hit 500 million spotify streams
Daydream will hit 200 million
Emancipation will also hit 200 million
Music Box will hit 150 million

Total studio albums streams will probably increase to 1,8 billion by year's end.

For comparison.
Madonna won a Golden Globe for "Masterpiece" in 2012.
The song and movie were both flops and she beat lady gaga/Elton and Mary blige

Mariah is the ONLY legend in the category. She has just as much chance as anyone

Mariah needs to do another unplugged session to fully shut down all the haters! It needs to be aired on a major channel and be simultaneously aired via Facebook Live! :D

Honestly used to think an Unplugged was unrealistic but she did just add a bunch of live parts to Hero which gives me some serious hope lol

An article mentioning some of the points already raised here regarding "The Star" and its chances for victory during Awards season:

Oscars 2018: Could Mariah Carey win for ‘The Star’ with help from overdue Marc Shaiman?
Daniel Montgomery
http://www.goldderby.com/article/2018/o ... 802461357/

Mariah Carey was a surprise Golden Globe nominee for co-writing the title song from the animated film “The Star” with Marc Shaiman. But could she be a surprise Oscar contender as well? This wouldn’t actually be the first brush with Oscar for the Grammy winning singer, though she herself hasn’t been a nominee. Shaiman, however, has been nominated — five times exactly — but he hasn’t won. Could the academy surprise us by awarding Carey while Shaiman cashes in his Oscar IOU?

Carey previously performed the Oscar winning song “When You Believe” from “The Prince of Egypt” (1998). That was a duet with Whitney Houston, but neither of them composed it. Instead it was written by Stephen Schwartz, who had also won a pair of Oscars for “Pocahontas” for his score and original song “Colors of the Wind.” And though Carey has incited the wrath of critics for her acting ventures like “Glitter” (2001), she received praise for her supporting role as a social worker in the Oscar winning drama “Precious” (2009), for which she was nominated for a SAG Award as a member of the ensemble cast.

And in recent years the Oscars have bee hospitable to A-list pop stars, with recent victories for Adele (the title song from 2012’s “Skyfall”), Common and John Legend (“Glory” from 2014’s “Selma”), and Sam Smith (“Writing’s on the Wall” from 2015’s “Spectre”). In addition, Lady Gaga (“Til it Happens to You” from 2015’s “The Hunting Ground”) and Justin Timberlake (“Can’t Stop the Feeling” from 2016’s “Trolls”) have earned nominations. On top of that, “The Star” has a Christian theme just like “The Prince of Egypt” did. “Prince” told the story of Moses while “The Star” is focused on the Nativity of Jesus.

Then there’s Shaiman, who earned Oscar nominations for his original scores for “The American President” (1995), “The First Wives Club” (1996), and “Patch Adams” (1998), as well as two original songs: “A Wink and a Smile” from “Sleepless in Seattle” (1993) and “Blame Canada” from “South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut” (1999). The latter race was controversial: many felt “Blame Canada” should have won that Oscar instead of that category’s champ, Phil Collins‘s “You’ll be in My Heart” from “Tarzan.” So the Oscars may be encouraged to make it up to him 18 years later.

Do you think we might be underestimating Carey and Shaiman for “The Star”?
