In recent years we’ve seen the quick rise of stars like Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander due in large part to their ability to come out swinging with a ton of high-profile films in a short amount of time.
Who is going to make their mark this year?
My guess is Haley Bennett.
The Girl on the Train
A Kind of Murder
The Magnificent Seven
Thank You for Your Service
Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes era film
Idk which of these will give her the awards cred that Chastain and Vikander got, but my best is on the Beatty film, provided it finally comes out. I also think Thank You for Your Service is a film a lot of people are sleeping on as a contender.
Yeah it’s pretty weird that this is that girl from Music & Lyrics. One of those shitty but for some reason kind watchable and not entirely forgettable films that always comes out and for some reason, it’s always Drew Barrymore.
I thought for sure she would disappear after that, she kind of did, and I recently saw bits of the film on cable and thought “where did she go?” and then IMDB hits me with all those roles she has lined up for this year alone.
She’s wonderful in “Kristy”.
She probably will. I don’t see her winning but she seems for like a Johannsson breakout year.
She certainly has the “star” look.
It’s always the same every year. Hollywood tries some babes to happen. Sometimes it sticks (Jennifer Lawrence) but most of the time they just disappear (Gretchen Mol). This one looks like she won’t go places.
