Streep for PROM not LET THEM ALL TALK. She is playing a Tony winning actress diva in LGBT themed film- catnip!
You’re over estimating her. The Prom’s not the kind of film the Oscars will go for. It’s not even that popular in the theatre community as it got a fairly lukewarm response, and was a financial failure, closing before it had even played for a year. I could possibly see Streep being pushed down to supporting, as there was some talk that Beth Leavel might be campaigned there last season, and Streep has already been nominated in supporting for a role thats seen as a lead onstage (The Witch in Into the Woods). She might get nominated there, but I don’t think she’ll make it in lead.September 16, 2019 at 2:55 pm #1203080843
I won’t believe Sunset is happening until it’s literally started filming at this point lol. I’m not sure about an October start date because Four Good Days is due to start filming in September. I doubt Close films three movies back to back to back, especially when the first two (Hillbilly and Four Good Days) are such heavy material. But even if she doesn’t film Sunset and it doesn’t come out next year, those two other films (if good) are reallllly baity roles and could easily win her an Oscar.
Y’all are forgetting hoooow many times Close has played Norma Desmond. She has done this role 1484 times on stage. She can film this in her sleep.
I saw the revival two summers ago and if this film is released, she is going to be nominated for an Oscar and she will likely win.September 16, 2019 at 3:08 pm #1203080867
Hopefully next year it will be Christopher Nolan’s time. He’s gotta win one way or another.September 16, 2019 at 9:15 pm #1203081508
First of all, if anyone is gonna get a Supporting Actress nod for West Side Story, it’s Ariana DeBose who’s playing Anita, which is by far the biggest and best of the supporting women in the show (winning Moreno an Oscar and Karen Olivo a Tony). Yes Moreno’s a legend, but she’s playing a gender-bent version of Doc, a part that’s not very big and definitely not showy. They would really need to do an enormous overhaul of the role in order for her to be in contention. And even if that happens, as long as DeBose does a good job with Anita (based on her prior theatrical performances, I think she’s going to be great) then she’ll wind up getting more hype and attention than Moreno’s work.
And second of all, what’s up with Mark Ruffalo and DuPonts?
You’re right, Moreno probably won’t get nominated. I just feel like she might get some votes for sentimental reasons which is why I have her hanging on at #9.
And yes, DuPont/Dark Waters needs to be taken out of there. My bad!September 16, 2019 at 9:42 pm #1203081527

I wasn’t saying that it should be taken out. I’m just noting the connection with Foxcatcher.September 16, 2019 at 9:51 pm #1203081531

Normally I would want this, but for now I’m sticking by Denis Villenueve.
Oscars 2020: I stan Joaquin Phoenix, Alan Silvestri, and Dean Deblois.
Emmys 2020: I stan Logan Lerman, Olivia Colman, and David Harbour.
Tom Hanks and Amy Adams stan in general.September 16, 2019 at 10:18 pm #1203081564
Denzel Washington is coming for Oscar #3 with “Macbeth”.

TENET is Spy-Action-Thriller.
I don’t think you win directing and acting Oscars for this genre.
