    “But next year, the Oscars will be interesting. If all goes well, I’m going to have three films in contention. I’ve had many years of working a lot without being in the public eye. And that’s been good. But by this time next year, I think things are going to change.” She smiled. “I expect to be busy. I’m ready to be a bit more known.”

    This quote started a lively discussion over at Awards Watch. What do you guys think about it?

    Still, he wasn’t the one with the written speech in his hands, right?

    Also, why is that wrong is someone is honest? So it’s better to make us believe that you don’t care about awards? Most people do. So I’m with those who are honest enough. Melissa Leo. Anne Hathaway. They cared enough to campaign. That’s all. Good for them!

    That’s not the problem Vince… I like it when Oscar nominees (and actors generally speaking) know their ground and where they’re standing. Michael Keaton knew he was one of the frontrunners. After months of feedback, awards recognition by his peers and so much buzz surrounding his film and performance he knew he stood a good chance of winning. And Redmayne did too but the way he seemed to act so surprised by everything around him and assuming that he faced just as much if not more talk about a possible victory, it just strikes as false (specially because he even takes minutes of his time to read GoldDerby and call Tom O’Neil himself – he knew what was up). Good for Redmayne though. My heart was still with Gyllenhaal and Teller though but unfortunately they were snubbed.

    She’s saying the films are hoping to be in contention, not herself as an Actor. 

    People have been saying for the last month about the films they expect to be in the race, but the second an actor says that they are hopeful the films will do well, it’s seen as a bad thing?

    At the end of the day, the campaign to awards glory is a GAME, and some people choose to play it, and often succeed.

    “The Theory of Everything” lost all major awards, and “Birdman” won some by the time of the Best Actor category. Eddie’s reaction was more like excited and happy that surprised in my opinion. I think he deserved to win, but I do loved Gyllenhaal equally. As of Keaton. He’s probably my Top 10, but he’s no way better than the former two or Ralph Fiennes (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) and Bill Hader (“The Skeleton Twins”).

    Yes, she’s hoping to get more well-known by being in the films that potentially get Oscar attention (whether she’s get nominated or not).

    Actually, she is kinda expected to have a breakout 2015 like Jessica Chastain did in 2011. Let’s see how that pans out for her. She could end up having the same fate as Jessica Chastain or Gugu Mbatha-Raw or still being Alicia who.

    Vikander was great in ‘Anna Karenina’, and she’s getting fantastic reviews for ‘Ex Machina’ with Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson. She’s definitely one to watch.

    I don’t understand why it seems so despicable for an actor or actress to say they would like to win an Oscar. We give them importance by sitting here on this board year after year discussing the Oscars and their significance to death (obviously they still mean something and represent the highest achievement one can garner for film or there would be entire forums and websites devoted to them). God forbid some actors say they would like to be nominated or win one. Yes, sometimes it can be too much (Leo, Hathaway) but I find nothing wrong with an up and coming actor and actress to express their desire to win or be nominated for an Oscar.   

    Hell, I want to be nominated for an Oscar!

    At the end of the day, Alicia Vikander must be very talented in order to get roles in seven films that have been/are going to be released this year alone, as well as two films on the tail end of last year, which have been released to a mass audience this year (Ex-Machina & Testament of Youth).

    I think that’s how it pretty much works these days, even if it usually goes unsaid. We all knew last year movies like Unbroken, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Fury, Gone Girl, Wild, etc. were being made with awards season in mind, and some actors are more or less contracted to make themselves as available for the circuit as possible. So obviously if they’re even in THAT position, they think about it occasionally. Even the movies without distributors right now have enough invested staff to ensure an awards-qualifying run will come with a distribution deal after festival premiere buzz.

    I think she didn’t understand the usual filter people have on that kind of thing in the business. Of course envisioning your next work in awards conversations is nothing humble, but she seems like she’s just talking about hoping to move to a higher stage of her career in general.

    And I also find it hilarious that the likes of us, who try to think about what will be nominated 10 months from now, find this kind of comment so repellant. We’re part of the machine. Wouldn’t we be totally cognizant of the possibility in her position?

    Lol.

    You may wish to give, A Royal Affair a try. It’s a dour piece of history where Mads Mikkelsen is the show-stopper, as usual. And surprisingly, it’s pretty close to what we know happened then. Plus, her tragic character Caroline was King George 3’s little sister. No way were they going to do something truly horrible to her, without starting a war with England.

    You might enjoy it.

    Seems like she is ready for year ahead but Focus getting Suffragette is one strike against her already
