    She should be an Oscar nominee by now.

    What happened to the directors of Hollywood? Why the hell they didn’t cast her for heavy Oscar-material dramas or Oscar-worthy projects? She has the talent, was worthy for a nomination in “Mean Girls” and had several other amazing performances.

    She has that kind of beauty that old, legendary actresses had – nobody sees it? Am I the only one who thinks that she’s getting older (I mean she’s almost 40) and still one of the most beautiful actress on earth? And I’m not even a fanboy of hers.
    Her face reminds me of old Hollywood movies, that kind of beauty you’ll always remember.

    Will she ever be a nominee? Will she ever has a chance to show her truly breathtaking talent in great projects?

    Let’s go Hollywood, don’t miss her, her beauty will lost soon and you did not make her a great movie at all! Come on!

    Sue me, but I really think she’s Oscar worthy in Mean Girls. I think she’s in my top five back then.

    That’s so fetch.

    You’re not the only one haha. She’s a great Actress, and should be an Oscar nominee right now! Also Does she age? She looks the same today as she did back in ’04.

    Oh, I don’t think it’s an issue with directors. After her huge years in 2004 and 2005 with Mean Girls, The Notebook, Wedding Crashers, Red Eye, and The Family Stone, McAdams said herself she thought she was overexposed and purposely disappeared for a while and just did a couple indies.

    Now it seems like she’s slowly starting to emerge again with Midnight In Paris, The Vow, and the new Terrence Malick flick, so all it’s gonna take is one fantastic performance in a high-profile film and she could be an Oscar winner.

    She was certainly Oscar worthy in 2004, better than Okonedo for sure. Mean Girls should had received two nominations: Adapted Screenplay and Supporting Actress.

    This might be her year with Passion and To the Wonder. She was sixth for me in 04, also like most actresses 30’s are when they mature into their looks and look even better when they were in their 20’s.

    I agree. I think she’s doing well, and I’m excited about her being in ‘To The Wonder’ and working with Malick (who usually gets very good and interesting performances from his actors, such as Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain’s great work in ‘The Tree of Life’ last year).

    And about her beauty, I agree completely with Vince. When I finally watched ‘The Notebook’ earlier this year, not only did I find her to be great in the film, Oscar worthy even, but she has such a classic beauty and such charm and charisma, she just screamed classic film star, old Hollywood royalty.

    2004, I had these supporting performances on my list:

    1. Cate Blanchett – The Aviator
    2. Kate Winslet – Finding Neverland
    3. Bryce Dalls Howard – The Village (For me, more a supporting than a lead…)
    4. Rachel McAdams – Mean Girls
    5. Natalie Portman – Closer

    Sophie Okonedo was my sixth.

    Well for crying out loud, Rachel isnt even 34 yrs old yet. Also, I hope this thread isnt only for cheerleaders, because, outside of The Lucky Ones, I am not a big fan of her films overall. It’s not that her films have all STUNK or anything.

    Perhaps her upcoming projects will ramp up her profile. She is in the new Malick film afterall. But, she’s starring with another Rachel, who is heads and above her (and most others to be fair) in film choices and in talent.

    Jmho.

    Is she really 34? She still looks like she is in her 20’s. I didn’t think she was that old (which isn’t even old, just I can’t believe she’s already 34!).

    She does look amazing for her age.

    And she was Oscar-worthy in Mean Girls.

    Wasn’t she forecast to be THE next big hollywood star alongside Knightley and Johanssen at one point? She hasn’t impressed me since Mean Girls and her iconic Regina George, mainly due to the roles she got. Some were alright, but never anything gutsy. She might have another shot, but it seems like hollywood has given up on her. She probably has to be content with the same catalogue of films Elizabeth Banks gets to do.

    After The Notebook and Mean Girls, I too thought she would soar, but indeed, she just disappeared and is slowly coming back. 

    I also have to jump on the [surprisingly popular] bandwagon of being behind her garnering an Oscar nom for Mean Girls, along with Tina Fey in Original Screenplay. Where Melissa McCarthy and Kristin Wiig/Annie Mumolo got in, McAdams/Fey didn’t. This also reminds me of the snubbing of Alicia Silverstone and Amy Heckerling for 1995’s Clueless (Silverstone, another actress who was expected to be huge but disappeared into oblivion. Her vegan career is really the only thing that’s kept her relevant, even though I loved her untimely canceled dramedy, Miss Match). 

    But it’s clear McAdams isn’t going to end up like Lohan (her own worst enemy) or Silverstone (a one-hit wonder?); she’s back and has proven she’ll likely win an Oscar one day.

    I much prefered Amanda Seyfried in Mean Girls to Rachel McAdams. While I think Rachel was good, the one who landed her role and landed her lines was Amanda. “It’s like I have ESPN or something.” I could not stop laughing. She did the best job at doing what she was supposed to do.

    “My breasts can always tell when it’s going to rain. Well, they can tell when it’s raining.”

    2004 Supportin Actress:
    1. Laura Linney – Kinsey
    2. Natalie Portman – Closer
    3. Amanda Seyfried – Mean Girls
    4. Cate Blanchett – The Aviator
    5. Virginia Madsen – Sideways
