I thought Nicole Kidman was amazing in Lion and I was really impressed after disliking her for years for taking the spotlight from Julianne Moore and Meryl Streep in The Hours.
Mother! reviews coming on Tuesday? That’s when we will know whether Michelle is going in Bening’s way or not.
Pfeiffer and Bening are in different categories.September 3, 2017 at 11:49 am #1202202703

Yes I know but both are/were heavily anticipated “success stories” and it seems Bening is not happening at all so I’m still hoping for Pfeiffer.September 3, 2017 at 11:55 am #1202202711
Gotcha, didn’t know what you meant. By the way, I don’t think either are happening.September 3, 2017 at 12:00 pm #1202202713
Mods need to put Laurie Metcalfe in the predictions center.September 3, 2017 at 12:06 pm #1202202720
All right, all right hate me, but Spencer was still the best in the category. Bye.
Nobody hates you. You’re not important enough to hate. It’s just the whiny objection of Spencer being better than everyone else and you acting like a child when anyone disagrees with that.September 3, 2017 at 2:28 pm #1202202801
Could Rosamund Pike get in for Hostiles? Reviews are sounding great for the film and Bale but I could see her getting pulled along for the ride.September 3, 2017 at 3:25 pm #1202202834
This is why I love the festival circuit, contenders that you haven’t considered come out of nowhere. I think Rosamund Pike has a shot if the film gets a distributor.September 3, 2017 at 3:29 pm #1202202835
In my opinion, this year’s Supporting Actress field is looking pretty bleak, so much so that I’m predicting people far down in the predictions center like Juno Temple and Carmen Ejogo just to fill it up. I’m not buying predictions for Michelle Pfeiffer, Holly Hunter, or Kirsten Dunst. I don’t think we’ve seen a contender yet that could actually win. I don’t think they’re going to give second Oscars to Melissa Leo or Octavia Spencer so quickly. I’m waiting for Pfeiffer, Temple, Ejogo and supporting players from The Post to clear this race up for me.September 3, 2017 at 3:39 pm #1202202840
I think this category looks better after Venice and Tellurdie
Rosamund Pike(If it gets a distributor)September 3, 2017 at 6:09 pm #1202202915
I read a negative review of The Hostiles from IndieWire that didn’t mention Pike at all… hopefully she gets in. It has been called the Christian Bale show and she’s the female lead but maybe supporting by comparison lol. The film needs a distributor first though.September 3, 2017 at 7:10 pm #1202202945
Rosamund Pike is even less of a chance than Kristin Scott Thomas who will basically drop out of the race because they’re both thankless roles (saw screenings). Personally, I think Laurie Metcalf just became the frontrunner because it’s gotten such incredible raves, I still see nods for smaller roles like Spencer or Dunst or Hunter or Pfeiffer are very likely either as coattail noms or because they stood out of a well-reviewed movie (The Big Sick, The Beguiled) but one that won’t get in elsewhere.
