    She’s literally had her own McConnaissance in the last few years. Her work in Fargo was the best work on TV this year, and critics unequivocally agreed. She was brilliant in Melancholia, All Good Things, Bachelorette and the reviews for her role were beyond stellar (Cannes Best Actress, anyone?). Her supporting role in Midnight Special this year was also very subtle, beautiful work. She should be an early shoo-in for a Best Supporting Actress nomination

    So here’s an actress who gets critical plaudits for basically everything, but for some reason, she continues to be underrated by the academy. Pundits don’t put her up as a viable contender or even mention her! She’s got three Oscar-bait movies coming up (Woodshock as a lead, The Beguiled with Nicole Kidman and herself as leads, and Hidden Figures as supporting) but still, nobody predicts her. HOW??

    Her “best” prospects could be with Sofia Coppola and The Beguiled. They’ve worked together before and Kirsten is terrific in Marie Antoinette.
    Interesting cast and subject matter. Sofia isn’t exactly known for getting her actors nominations, but she did write the screenplay. As long as she keeps one foot within the mainstream, Kirsten may have a chance for a nomination.
    She likely wont win, but one can hope for some positive attention.

    Btw, I’ve appreciated Dunts’es work for quite some time. I believe she is unfairly maligned as an actor more often than not.

    I don’t know if Woodshock will come out this year, but the role of a woman suffering from paranoia seems like a Black Swan/Room type role that could get her to the Oscar ceremony.

    The Beguiled will be Sofia Coppola’s most AMPAS-friendly film since Lost In Translation. Everything else she has ever done would never come close to Oscar territory although she was quite terrific in Marie Antoinette and absolutely awards-worthy. Plus she was horribly snubbed for Melancholia, a film that holds her very best performance to date and one that should have reigned over Streep’s in my opinion.

    She’s young. If Patricia Arquette can win an Oscar late in her career no reason to believe it’s over for Dunst. It may not come as soon as fans would prefer but I see her having a longer career than some of these hyped pretty girls who can only play a variation of one or two things.

    Yeah it really does feel that way, but there’s so little info about the movie. Why are they being so quiet about it all?

    Her performance in Melancholia actually won her a ton of critics’ awards and was definitely the best performance that year. She shouldn’t just have been nominated, she should have won — she was better than Streep in the Iron Lady by a country mile.

    Regardless, I think the trifecta of Woodshock, Hidden Figures AND Midnight Special (one leading performance and two supporting performances) might mean major Oscar buzz this year.

    I agree that she should be a lock for a Best Supporting Actress bid, actually. Midnight Special came out too early in the year for people to take it seriously but Dunst was the best thing about it. Unfortunately, this is Michelle Williams’ year, but a nod should be a sure shot

    Her performance in Melancholia is definitely one of the best of the century so far.

    She definitely should have been nominated for Interview with a Vampire and Melancholia. I’m counting on Woodshock or (my favorite) Sofia Coppola to launch her into Oscar contention one day soon.

    I agree. I still think her supporting performance in Midnight Special should be pushed hard for Best Supporting Actress—she had a surprising emotional impact on me given how underwritten the role was especially towards the end of the movie where the scene of her giving up Alton broke my heart. But, let’s see how the chips fall. They don’t fall fairly, that’s for sure.

    Amy Adams has at least three Oscar nominations that were name-checks (I loved her in Junebug and The Master but thought she was okay-good in the rest). Meanwhile, Dunst goes ignored for one spectacular performance after another.

    I honestly don’t think Kirsten Dunst is a great enough actress to win the the Oscar, although if she gets to play a drunk, real-life person, someone with a disability, or all of the above, in a supporting role in an Oscar bait movie, she could easily get a nomination on the coattails of the movie’s Awards success, ala Rachel McAdams in Spotlight.
