    Even Joaquin Phoenix this year underneath he wanted it pretty badly. You don’t lose 52 pounds for nothing, just for the sake of it.

    Yeah, of course, if you are really desperate for an Oscar you make comic book movie, with Hangover director on top of that. Perfect Oscar bait. Everybody knows how Academy loves those movies and how often actors win and are nominated for those roles.
    Give me a break
    Not every role where you have to gain or loose weight is taken for the sake of Oscars.

    Chances that it would end how it ended were pretty slim.

    I know it can be shocking for some on this forum but there are diffrent factors to take roles, especially that kind of, like idk first and foremost money lol.

    Saoirse Ronan doesn’t do any film that isn’t Oscar bait.

    Timothy Chalamet

    Denzel Washington #2

    Leonardo DiCaprio #2

    Glenn Close

    Viola Davis is obviously doing everything possible to break that jinx on black actresses.

    Christian Bale wants a lead win so badly

    Nicole Kidman wants to match up with Cate Blanchett

    Jessica Chastain

    I very much like the guy but it’s clear as a day Bale also is pretty hungry for that leading Oscar.

    If you look at his filmography from the last couple of years almost all his projects are more or  less successful Oscar baits.

    Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman and Jessica Chastain are thirsty for Oscars. Chastain is very thirsty for her 1st win. She wants it so bad.

    Nothing wrong with wanting it as long as your thirst doesn’t lead you to the dark side of smearing the competition. Melissa leo’s Consider This and Eddie Redcarpet emailing thanks to Tom O’Neil are perfectly harmless displays of thirst. Unlike what’shisface Hurt Locker producer who was rigging votes against Avatar by emailing AMPAS with plea not to vote fot it. That’s bad taste.

    Viola Davis threw The Help under the bus when she thought that Widows (lol) was her ticket to another Actress nom. That was another display of not so classy thirst even though the movie was long gone, so not as bad as trashing competition but still unnecessary.

    There’s some selective memory going on here. For example, just because Luminous Sersh didn’t get non-baity parts (she tried for Rey, Katniss, Snow White, Scarlett Witch, Sue Storm among other franchise characters) it doesn’t mean she never wanted them and only wanted Oscar baits. Likewise, Kidman is sure chasing the Oscar with Aquaman. They all mix and match but they are also lucky to get more quality roles than, I dunno, Evangeline Lily or other actress that never got a quality part in anything awards worthy or even baity.

    I’ve always felt that if I were to go into acting, I’d actively try to win an Oscar with every role I take. So I don’t begrudge anyone their thirst.

    With that logic, if you could say that awards were the furthest thing from Viggo Mortensen’s mind when he gained 50 lbs while making a buddy road comedy with the director of Dumb and Dumber.

    LOL, WTF? Viggo was in a muh race movie. They are baity af no matter who directs them. Joker is far from baity because CBM got serious attention just a year before also due to muh race (Black Panther), which Joker didn’t have. So very doubtful that Phoenix accepted the role in a movie, that AMPAS has genre bias against, with a plan to win because Ledger pulled off a miracle. In fact, Ledger win was a strike against Joker’s baitiness. Apples and ornages.
