The Academy would not nominate both Rampling and Tomlin. I would choose Rampling over Tomlin since Rampling has never been an Oscar nominee.August 22, 2015 at 10:07 am #192687
Rampling is my #1 for this year. Will be stanning hard for Son Altesse Charlotte Rampling!
Critics awards bodies better fall in line.August 22, 2015 at 10:10 am #192688
Underrated and under-appreciated living legend. I adore her. Have you seen her documentary? It made me fall in love with her.August 22, 2015 at 10:15 am #192689
After watching the trailer, it looks like Rampling commands the screen. She is so underrated, a legend, I can’t believe she hasn’t been nominated for an oscar before. Give her at least a nomination for this, academy!August 22, 2015 at 10:43 am #192690
I’ve only seen her work in Melancholia. Although she only has about one scene, she KILLED it. I certainly wouldn’t be against the idea of her being an Oscar nominee.August 22, 2015 at 10:47 am #192691

Yep. “The Look” is a bit pretentious, but it’s a great look at one of the great actresses of cinema. My favourite performance from her is in Laurent Cantet’s marvellous Heading South. Even though her performances in Georgia Girl and Night Porter are brilliant, she just blows them all away with Heading South. Clean, pure hardcore acting. I watch that film at least once a year.August 22, 2015 at 12:31 pm #192692
Looking‘s Andrew Haigh!
Excited to see this at VIFF for free.August 22, 2015 at 2:08 pm #192694
This is my #1 Oscar wish for 2015.August 22, 2015 at 2:09 pm #192695
No actually it’s my #2.
#1 is Julie Walters for Brooklyn.August 28, 2015 at 7:45 am #192696
Tim Robey from The Telegraph gives it a flat out rave (5/5).
Peter Bradshaw from Guardian, another flat out rave (5/5).
Review from Geoffrey Macnab at The Independent is a rapturous rave.

She’ll be lucky to be nominated, but I’m rooting for her and I know I’m not alone!August 28, 2015 at 9:48 am #192698
^ Of course you’re not alone! I fucking love Charlotte and it’s about damn time she finally gets her overdue nomination! She’s a much much better actress than that piece of shit actress that’s gonna take it this year. You know who am I talking about.
