    Let’s forget about the dreadful “Twilight Saga Films” as César-winning and BAFTA Rising Star Award Honoree actress Kristen Stewart is ready to change her choices in film! “Still Alice” & “Camp X-Ray” & “Clouds of Sils Maria” are a good way to start this (she’s also excellent and underrated in “Welcome to the Rileys” “Into the Wild” “Panic Room” and “The Runaways”).

    An article on her by the lovely Daniel! Vote on the poll!

    Go Kristen!

    She never truly impressed me in the past, but she definitely won me over with this performance. I expect she’ll remain in the conversation enough to get a well-deserved nomination.

    The film has been on my ‘to watch list’ for about six months now, since the Cesar awards most notably. 

    I have never been bowled over by Stewart, I thought she was ‘ok’ in Still Alice, and her name on a project has never made me want to watch anything, but I am willing to give her a wide open chance to wow me with this.

    I despise Twilight so I won’t punish her for the horrible material she was given. But because it is indies, like Still Alice, The Runaways, Speak, and of course, Clouds of Sils Maria, where she is more at home, her talents really shine in those. I certainly wouldn’t be against Stewart being nominated for Clouds of Sils Maria.

    It’s a great performance, and I’d love to see her gain traction, but it doesn’t seem like a film voters would go for…

    I’ve been championing her since I first saw the film- she kills it. IMHO, this is easily her best performance so far in her young career. She shares almost all of her scenes with the great Juliette Binoche, and they gel with each other so well, it’s perfect performance chemistry. 

    All of the scenes where they are rehearsing for the play are fantastic, as is the scene after they watch the sci-fi/comic book film that Chloe Grace Moretz is in and they are discussing whether that type of character/film warrants any deeper analysis; it’s a wonderful moment.  You can watch that scene in it’s entirety here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txx5-u7EmcE

    I think there is just a push to keep her performance relevant.  She has years yet to prove herself, and I don’t think a Cesar Award for a boring film should or will translate into an Oscar nomination.

    I think she has pretty much proved herself a few times. It’s true that she has years to do more of quality work, but let’s just not ignore her latest achievements.

    And of course no one is suggesting that she should happen based on her César win. She should happen based on her beautiful performance alone. The César-win is incredibly relevant, though – the first ever American actress to receive the honor. That’s a big deal and I think the Academy would be too dumb not to support their own (American) actress, after the worldwide acclaim.

    I’m liking your comment because you make a lot of sense.  We simply disagree about the film and the strength of the performance, not Stewart personally. Laughing

    The only way I see Stewart is happening is similar to Cotillard’s nom last year. The critics need to get behind her like they did Cotillard last year with each organisation awarding her. Of course I would love the nom to happen but unless some of these unseen contenders don’t hit it strong and the critics I get behind her I can see a universe in which she gets a nomination.

    I saw Clouds of Sils Maria last month and I don’t know what anyone is talking about. She’s the same annoying, flat, boring, whiny Kristen Stewart in every movie I’ve seen her in before. It was like watching an acting class where Juliette Binoche was trying to teach a cardboard box how to act. This movie isn’t going anywhere in terms of awards. That Ceaser was definitely a fluke

    You just simply hate her acting, so you hate everything with her and that’s fine. But just for the record, her César win is a big deal. And not only based on that, but because of her raves, she’s definitely not out of the question for a Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.

    Oh, that’s very odd. Are you sure you saw Clouds of Sils Maria? Because what I saw from Kristen Stewart was a beautiful, transcendent, brilliant performance. I must be terribly mistaken to have loved that performance and love her as an actress…

    I am sure Kristen will be happy to apologize to you because her performance didn’t have screaming, shouting and crying, and was reserved and sedate.

    The Cesar Award was probably a fluke, you’re right – they aren’t comparable to a fine institution like the Academy Awards, who gave Oscar wins to Lupita Nyong’o for a crying scene, Patricia Arquette for a crying scene, Octavia Spencer for baking her poop, Jennifer Hudson for scream-singing at Jamie Foxx. The intelligent, professional filmmakers and critics who vote for the Cesar Awards really aren’t able to see a good performance it seems. Screw the Cesars, Viva la Oscars!

    Kyle, god forbid one of your favorites stars in a terrible film and tries to progress their career. The sad thing about the movie fan industry is how difficult it is for someone to rise out of the ashes of a bad film, not because its difficult to do, but because people are so close-minded about them and won’t give them a chance.

    Did the Clouds of Sils Maria even have a theatrical release? It’s on VOD now.
