    A lot of people are bummed about Charlotte Rampling’s BAFTA snub, which seems like a bad sign (British favorite couldn’t even get a nomination from the Brits), but it reminds me of Marion Cotillard last year for “Two Days, One Night.” The only major precursor nom Cotillard got was Critics’ Choice, same as Rampling. Cotillard was snubbed by BAFTA, which would have seemed to be more hospitable (BAFTAs are often more foreign-friendly). But there was an open Oscar slot and she got it.

    This year there are maybe two. If the academy leaves both Mara and Vikander in the supporting category, then where does the academy go after Larson, Blanchett, and Ronan? There doesn’t seem to be any love for “Joy,” so Jennifer Lawrence could only hope to slide in by default at this point. And other actors like Lily Tomlin and Helen Mirren also haven’t really scored across the board. I think Rampling still has a shot at it, especially as a respected veteran who has never been nominated before.

    i truly believe she will be in, she won the best actress awards at the Berlin Film Festival and the best european actress award, so she is definitely a strong contender for an academy awards nomination, which could be her 1st one. I TRUST THE ACADEMY MEMBERS !…

    She does, but I highly doubt the Academy will keep Mara and Vikander in supporting(See my thread for them).  I think she could definitely still make it, but her chances are very, very slim after the BAFTA snub.  But she could pull it out.  However, the thing was is that Marion was a previous Oscar winner who was overdue for a second Oscar nomination giving a performance that had  arguably more support around it.  Rampling has never been nominated before and is she really loved enough to get it? We’ll see.  

    I think we can all agree though that there is no way she will win if she makes it- With no  possibility of a BAFTA  win, she has no chance to gain enough momentum to take the prize.

    No. Cotillard had the fifth slot wide open for the taking, a lack of real competition, already received love from the Academy, and had been on the verge of a second nod for most years following that win.

    There is no open slot with a lack of competition. The competition is ridiculously fierce, and Rampling has never been recognised by the Academy, and doesn’t have a big enough name to get in when her film is not going to be recognised anywhere else.

    I love Rampling in 45 Years, but people need to separate their own wish list from what is actually happening. People aren’t keen on Lawrence generally, and she too hasn’t got much precursor love, and people are slamming anyone for even mentioning her name with getting a nod. Double standards when many are shouting about Rampling, when she stands even less of a chance than Lawrence.

    I think the telling thing about Rampling missing out with BAFTA is that the assumption is voters aren’t pressing play on the screener or seeking it out in the theater. If Rampling can’t inspire BAFTA voters to watch her film then how is she going to inspire AMPAS voters to?

    Because, let’s be honest, Rampling easily gives the best performance of the year. Any voting body that hasn’t named her as the Best Actress does so because they never watched the film. It’s impossible to watch the film and think any actress did a better job this year.

    I feel like Vikander is going lead (and probably supporting as well) and Mara will go supporting. I’m thinking if Maggie Smith can manage an upset at the Globes and with the BAFTA nomination she could get in on that 5th spot.

    We also have to remember the nomination process for Oscar is totally different from the other awards bodies, including BAFTA. She only needs to be listed #1 on a certain number of ballots, not appear on every ballot.

    The category might be insanely competitive, but there are only three actresses who are consistenly getting in everywhere. That number is one less than last year. Two, if you count Aniston who got in at SAG, BFCA, GG-Drama and probably would have gotten in BAFTA had she been eligible. So no, getting nominated at Lead Actress is not harder than last year. So many viable but not undeniable contenders cause so many splits.

    And when there’s a clearly open slot/or contenders on shaky grounds; those slots either go to the actors who are in Best Picture contenders/the movies that are competitive in other categories or the years critic consensus with lots of buzz like Jacki Weaver in Animal Kingdom. This year unfortunately there aren’t many great leading roles for women in Best Pictures. So that leaves us with the second option. 

    I don’t think the premise of this thread is actually to debate whether Rampling as strong as Cotillard though, it’s more like to remind people that there’s a possibility that you could still stand a chance in the race even if your stronghold ignores you. That also applies to Mirren.(for both lead and supporting.)

    Rampling was good in 45 years but…she didnt have much to do in this film. It was quiet performance.

    She could be… Last year, the Oscars nominated Cotillard based on the passion for her performance. They did not follow the trend of the other award shows and they earned my respect lol.

    No, Marion Cotillard has won an Academy Award, and that pretty much ensured that the academy was going to at least watch her project. Charlotte Rampling has not been acknowledged by any of the major groups, so they are probably not even going to watch her project. In addition, she is not even a prior nominee.
