Spilt was not good in my opinion but Buckley was amazing.August 8, 2017 at 12:47 am #1202178367
This girl was so damn good in her small role. She definitely did more than Naomi Harris or Michelle Williams last year.
Like I said, I prefer Split, but I’m there to support “Get Out” as well. Horrors or horrorish films can be as worthy as prestige dramas. It’s time for the Academy to acknowledge the genre a bit more than they used to. Betty Gabriel or Betty Buckley would make worthy contenders, and I’d take both Catherine Keener and Allison Williams as well. It doesn’t matter. All were good and probably better than the prestige dramas supporting cast, which are usually one-dimensional and boring Oscar-baity turns.August 8, 2017 at 12:54 am #1202178370
If I had to nominate one Get Out actor it wouldn’t be Kaluuya or one of the ladies, it’d be Lil Rel lol.August 8, 2017 at 12:59 am #1202178377
I think Lil Rel was the worst part of the film. 🙂 Absolutely unfunny and very much of a well-known character created based on other horror movie characters. Just weak. 🙂
But the girls and Daniel were good, and so does Keith.August 8, 2017 at 3:26 am #1202178448
1. Melissa Leo
3. Michelle Pfeiffer
3. Octavia Spencer
4. Hong Chau
5. Judi Dench (why no one on earth considers her from Orient Express?)
Alt: Mary J. Blige, Holly Hunter, Betty Gabriel, Catherine Keener, Allison Williams, Juno Temple, Kristin Scott Thomas.
I see only Pfeiffer, Spencer, and Leo as good bets. You missed Kirsten Dunst whose chances only increase as films don’t do as well as people want them to (The Glass Castle, for instance).August 8, 2017 at 3:29 am #1202178454
Kirsten Dunst–The Beguiled
Octavia Spencer–The Shape of Water
Mary J. Blige–MudboundAugust 8, 2017 at 3:38 am #1202178463
Michelle Pfeiffer looks good in the mother! trailerAugust 8, 2017 at 3:39 am #1202178465
In alphabetical order:
1) Annette Bening—The Seagull
2) Kirsten Dunst—The Beguiled
3) Holly Hunter—The Big Sick
4) Michelle Pfeiffer—Mother!
5) Octavia Spencer—The Shape of Water
I’d like a first-time winner even though I love, love, love Hunter and Spencer but I’d prefer any of the other three.
Carrie Coon—The Papers, Melissa Leo—Novitiate, Mary J. Blige—Mudbound, Julianne Moore—Suburbicon, Nicole Kidman—The Killing of a Sacred DeerAugust 8, 2017 at 5:01 am #1202178523
Tiffany Haddish was so great! Just watched Girls Trip. She’s just as deserving for a nod as McCarthy was. Don’t think it’s going to happen though
Mary J. Blige—Mudbound
Kirsten Dunst—The Beguiled
Octavia Spencer—The Shape of Water
I can’t WAIT for Spencer and Dunst who were so great together in Hidden Figures last year to be co-nominees in this category. They clearly adore each other, they were always laughing and hugging each other at awards ceremonies last year.August 8, 2017 at 6:41 am #1202178597

I haven’t missed Kirsten Dunst. I don’t think she’s happening at all. The Begulied was finely recieved by the critics (78% on Rotten Tomatoes), but it was all about the ensemble-effort, and Kidman was basically the one who was singled out in reviews. This thing with Dunst is a fan-desire, not a real thing. She is not happening for a film which was released that early, which was not loved by the industry and which featured many other women in worthy performances in it. She is a lost cause.
Excuse me if I think that 7-time Oscar-nominee Judi Dench can happen for the adaptation of an iconic story by Agatha Christie. It’s British, it has an all-star Oscar-bait cast, the director is a multiple Oscar-nominee, and the last adaptation was a huge success. I think Michelle Pfeiffer and Penelope Cruz can also happen for the same film.
Hong Chau or Mary J. Blige (and Octavia Spencer) will also satisfy the diversity-talk. They are no-names in the film industry and have worthy performances which are keeping them in the Oscar talk. You see they are on the list for being awesome in a film, not because a certain actress’ fandom feel like it’s time to reward them with nominations. These fan picks are almost never happening. I wish it would with Dunst, but it won’t. She needed to be the best in cast in a better film to achieve that. She has neither of those two.
That’s how I see it. Actors will put as many minorities as they possibly can to avoid the drama, especially this year, where once again there are not many worthy roles for minorities in cinema. So people like Hong Chau, Octavia Spencer, Mary J. Blige, Betty Gabriel, Denzel Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Penélope Cruz, Jason Mitchell, Javier Bardem, Sterling K. Brown, John Boyega, Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Kaluuya will all be in the conversation AT LEAST.August 8, 2017 at 9:08 am #1202178732
