After getting in at Bafta is Rene a contender.January 9, 2015 at 1:53 am #172110
Nightcrawler got a PGA nomination a Eddie award nom and a SAG nom for Jake Gyllenhaal. Now Rene got in at Bafta. There seems to be more passionate support for Nightcrawler then for A most violent year and Nightcrawler has been getting more support from various guilds.January 9, 2015 at 1:54 am #172111
I had that before the BAFTA nominations and I’m not changing it now. Rene Russo has a really strong chance next week. Voters are looking at Nightcrawler in other categories (Picture, Actor, Screenplay). She can ride in on the love for the movie.January 9, 2015 at 2:08 am #172112
Hopefully both get in as both were excellent. Can Streep please miss out on this one?January 9, 2015 at 2:16 am #172113
I had Chastain at a 100 to 1 odds but I dropped her. I think there is a lack of support for her film. Those who love Nightcrawler are really passionate about it and it could do well in categories like screenplay. Chastain could still get in but I don’t see any other noms for her filmJanuary 9, 2015 at 3:01 am #172114
Streep is out, Ruso is in. Chastin is a safe bet.January 9, 2015 at 3:26 am #172115
Probably not, though I’d like to see Keira Knightley be the one to get ‘Oprahed’…January 9, 2015 at 3:58 am #172116
Rene is overdue for a win or even a nom. Chastain has been embraced before. It would be nice to see Rene get inJanuary 9, 2015 at 4:43 am #172117
I don’t even know anymore! It all seemed so locked up in this category until now! I hope Russo gets in, she is one of my favourites of the year, but it still seems a bit unlikely to me. I guess I just don’t know.January 9, 2015 at 5:00 am #172118
I did not see anything special about Rene Russo in Nightcrawler. Tilda Swinton should be getting a lot more recognition than her for snowpiercer. But you know the Oscars, is more about the politics, the campaign, the production company and the buzz than the actual performance.January 9, 2015 at 5:33 am #172119
Streep should be slotted out of the race in favour of Rene Russo, it’s not going to happen, but she should.
The likelihood is that;
- Arquette is the frontrunner.
- Stone is in the film that is going to be very high in nominations.
- Knightley should get wide support because of the film and her performance.
- Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep.
- If one is to miss out, then it will, unfortunately, be Chastain.
Russo stands a shot at getting in, kind of in the way Christian Bale got into the Lead Actor race last year for American Hustle. The love for the film could push her in. Arquette, Stone & Knightley are all in what are going to be Best Picture nominees (just like Dern/Ejiofor/DiCaprio/McConaughey). While Hanks missed out despite Captain Phillips getting a Picture nod, the other nominations and buzz about the film weren’t there in comparison. And Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep. Chastain is kind of forced to be the one who has to miss out in favour of her. If it happens.January 9, 2015 at 5:57 am #172120
Russo in, Streep out. Pretty please Oscars!Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJanuary 9, 2015 at 6:05 am #172121
Streep is out, Ruso is in. Chastin is a safe bet.
I think Streep is a lock. The Academy nominates her for everything. I mean, she’s Meryl Streep. I hope that both Russo and Chastain get nominated as they’re both great in their respective films, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. So, I think that Chastain gets in and Russo (wrongly) gets snubbed.January 9, 2015 at 6:15 am #172122
I reject the thought the last spot is between these two. Bye Knightley and Stone.
