    It will premiere on Lifetime on May 25, so it is eligible for the Emmys, right? 

    Even though the reviews are poor, I think Kidman stands a fairly good chance to be nominated, and it could round up technical nominations too.

    Not even for Nicole Kidman? Nicole Kidman, one of the most talented actresses working today, playing Grace Kelly, one of the the most iconic female moviestars ever?

    If it was a weaker year for the category, yea I’d say Kidman would probably make it in. But they have enough movie stars to name check that I don’t think she stands a chance. She definitely still might make it in, but her chances would be better if the category wasn’t already competitive. And outside of her I’m gonna say no. Maybe a supporting actor or something, i don’t even know who it would be but that just seems like the type of random surprise we’d get from the emmys

    Boomer said that it may be ineligible.

    If it is eligible, Nicole Kidman is its only chance because of her stature.  Its image is too tainted to get anything else.

    Everyone in the world knows this movie is a dog, and being sent to die on Lifetime with little promotion on a bad airdate is the final nail.

    And I saw it during its Canadian theatrical release. It really is bad.

    There is no chance this dud of a movie gets near the Emmys. MAYBE Nicole Kidman can get in through name-checking, but with so many other ladies in much better shows before her, I wouldn’t hold out hope.

    If Kidman misses for this, it would just make the Emmys a little more credible, showing quality is better than name-recognition

    I said this the minute it was announced, and I will still insist there is no way this piece of shit is getting anywhere near any nominations at all.  And that inculdes Nicole Kidman.  Someone here said Lifetime would give this a big campaign and spend lots of money on it, but apparently that has not been the case.  I still do not understand why Lifetime even bothered purchasing this film in the first place.  

    Considering this film is nothing more than someone else’s disaster being re-heated on a network the Emmy’s are not overly friendly too with little promotion and stuck on a crappy air date, I doubt the Emmy’s will get anywhere near close to this mess.  I am guessing the film will come and go relatively quitely and quickly.

    Lifetime has not sent out screeners to voters yet, but they also have not yet sent out The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe because neither has aired yet.  There is still time for them to promote it if it is eligible, not that a potential Nicole Kidman nomination would have anything to do with promotion.

    Even though the movie is not great, I found Nicole Kidman good in this role. And I read that the film was re edited for lifetime, so it’s probably a little bit better now.

    After watching it, yikes no. If it does get in the consideration race, I could see a music nom or a costumes nom but nothing else. Kidman was unsteady throughout. She had nice moments but some cringe worthy moments accent wise. Tim Roth was great.

    The film’s a major tonal and screenwriting mess, and I’m not sure what was the point of telling this particular Grace Kelly story. It did hold a bit of interest for me since I’ve been on a Hitchcock kick lately, and I do want to see “Marnie” at some point soon. I’m really baffled at some of Oliver Dahan’s directing decisions. There’s one car scene in particular that’s “SNL” level in its dreadful execution. Despite all of this nonsense, Nicole Kidman gives a far better performance than a film like this deserves. She gives this speech at the end as Princess Grace (“Her Serene Highness”) that’s a genuine stunner. If Lifetime campaigns for her, I think she can get the film’s sole Emmy nomination, unless voters go whole hog for the techs like costumes, art direction, and such. Kidman’s would be a name-check nomination mostly, since I doubt voters would get to the end of the film to see where her true award worthiness lies. But in the end, this isn’t must-see Kidman or must-see anything, really.

    There were an obnoxious amount of commercials. I regret watching it live.
