Sorry its been so long since my last poll, but im back and starting off with a complex one, I feel she can easily be both but because of the way the awards turned out for her i inclined to say she’s more leading, please vote and leave suggestions
Scarlett Johansson in Her
Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs
Eva Marie Saint in On The Waterfront
Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained
Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook
Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People
Catherine Zeta-Jones in Chicago
Steve Carell in Foxcatcher
It’s a close one, but both Meryl and Julianne have bigger, more complex roles than her. I feel like she supports the 2 of them. So I say she’s supporting.
All three were lead.
100% lead, just as Streep and Moore. The Hours is a movie about the life of three women. None of the three is supporting anyone. The three of them have their own equally important arcs. So, the three are leads. There’s just no argument to sustain that one of them could be a supporting character.
Of course leading! Only a total moron or cheater would think otherwise! The movie has three leads: Streep, Moore and Kidman. DUH!
I agree that The Hours is a 3-lead film. Kidman, Moore and Streep are the lead for each of their own time periods, and carry equal weight in the narrative.
