    With bad reviews do you feel like American Pastoral or The Girl on the Train are out of this awards race?

    Is there a history of past movies getting mostly negative reviews and still receive accolades?

    Do any of the actors still have a shot?

    I just got back from seeing The Girl on the Train. What a shame the movie is a stinker as Blunt is superb!

    I loved Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Totally deserved a Best Picture nom, and many people agreed. Of course, many people didn’t. It was a love or hate film.

    No one is loving either one of these films. I agree Blunt was fantastic and with a better film around her and a better showcase (the adaptation stupidly reduced her role) then she would have been a contender.

    Scott Rudin produced it.

    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was such an annoying film, if there is a movie that could follow its steps that would be “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk”, if it’s as bad as critics say.

    American Pastoral, yes, nothing about that movie has been reviewed very well. Girl on the Train at least got good reviews for Emily Blunt, but I think the movie’s been too criticized for her to be in play. The first thing that comes to mind of a movie getting meh reviews (like 50s on RT) and its lead actor getting nominated anyway is maybe Diane Lane in Unfaithful? But then she was like a big critics hit and it wasn’t a strong year for BA so i think Blunts out. Personally though, I didn’t think the movie was that bad and I thought she was great.

    I think Blunt will still get the Globe nod and maybe a surprise BAFTA one but beyond that there is nothing for either of these unless half the Best Actress contenders are assassinated overnight.

    Yeah, beyond a long-shot Globe nod for Blunt, both films have a Jill Stein chance of garnering awards season love.

    I still think Blunt gets in at The Globes. I don’t think most people realize she has been nominated FIVE times for Globes and won once. She is clearly a favorite there.

    Meryl Streep has 29 nominations and 8 wins and wasn’t nominated last year for the sub par yet better reviewed Ricki and the Flash. So no, I don’t think they’ll just nominate Emily Blunt for anything.
