    This reluctance towards Richard Jewell is interesting. I feel like people were sure of many movies this season getting nominated sight unseen with less popular names attached to them, but for some unspoken reason GDers think Richard Jewell simply “isn’t happening.” Perhaps it’s common to conflate awards chances with how excited you are by a film/the people involved, but it’s ignorant to dismiss Eastwood’s repeatedly proven support within the Academy.

    I think part of it has to do with the fact that a lot of people predicted the mule which similarly came into the field last minute and that did not pay off at all

    Nice to see a post I can completely agree with. My suspicion was a negative response to Clint as a man. Not a director.

    I wasn’t here for The Mule picking but that film was never meant to be in the running. So I don’t think that was a legit concern. He played it down and had his eggs in another basket.

    Last night I watched The Laundromat and I am stunned by Streep’s performance. Are people really that confident she won’t be nominated for Supporting for this role? And why not?

    She’s in a panned film on which she plays a character that disappears after the first 30 minutes and another silly character. In my opinion,in the time she appeared I found her average so I’d like to know why you are stunned.

    Because her moment to moment work is ridiculously good. Her listening to the other characters. The basic acting technique. Which is why she is so often nominated. Not only that, but her characters’ discoveries and slow and gradual descent into hopelessness is so truthful.

    The last scene of the movie is enough for a nomination in my opinion. Her imagination is unparalleled. The way she sheds those layers…no one could do that as well as she did. Truly.

    Also on the topic of Streep, I feel like I keep bringing this up, but it’s a huge obstacle for her. The film has no backing at all. Netflix won’t campaign for it (which is really bad considering the all the big, respected names attached to it). Now I’ll admit, if there’s one actor or actress on the planet who can get nominated with zero studio backing, it’s Meryl Streep. But I still can’t see her getting in without the studio on her side, especially when she has another film coming out where she’ll be competing in supporting.

    Have not seen Little Women yet, but I assume her work in The Laundromat is superior… and if they want to nominate her for LW, then perhaps people will say “eh, let’s just give her the nod for the better of the two performances.”

    But wouldn’t the brownface thing be too controversial? As somebody mentioned here, I don’t see The Laundromat having any buzz or campaigning. That’s why I think if they want Streep anyway, they’re going to nominate her for Little Women. It’s not like there weren’t any shorter performances nominated (Viola Davis in Doubt or Hermione Baddeley in Room at the Top) and rewarded (Beatrice Straight in Network) before, and she is Meryl Streep after all. Also, Little Women will surely be watched, but the other movie may not be remembered at all.

    I hope I’m wrong but LW seems like an esoteric genre that mainly geeks like us would wish to see. I’m interested in seeing the final box office, although it isn’t going to bomb.
    As for the wonderful women you mentioned, none of them looked like freaks.
    As much as I admire Streep I suspect this will be a quiet year for her.
    Plus, she’s got an interesting project coming up.

    She’ll probably give a better performance in her LW cameo. She’s awful in The Laundromat.
