    The influence of the critics is much bigger than before, so it doesn’t happen as often nowadays.
    For something like that to happen, you basically need
    – a universally beloved/respected actress
    – in a weak year
    – in an academy friendly film

    Having said that, The Laundromat seems divisive enough (although it won’t be rotten), but Meryl isn’t missing out, regardless whether she is lead or supporting.

    Judy potentially. 63 metascore now, could go lower.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    Potentially, but it’s at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes right now. Even the more negative reviews are leaning good not great (which feels about right for 63 on metacritic). I doubt it goes much lower than that.

    As has been said probably Judy, and I really dont think Harriet is going to light metacritic on fire with its score either.

    Judy’s critical reception has The Wife written all over it: got a 100% on RT out of TIFF due to the performance taking over the reviews rather than the film itself, but drops to the low 80s once released to the general public. The bad thing with Judy is that its Metacritic score is already 14 points lower than The Wife’s 77, so I expect a vastly lower RT score than the latter and less critic awards for Zellweger than Close.

    I find it interesting in retrospect that Cotillard was able to pull off her win even though La Vie en Rose itself got mixed reviews.

    Oh Miranda Richardson is such a talented actress!

    A 31 Rotten Tomato is harsh

    It seems like biopics seem to be the biggest exception when it comes to Oscar voters looking past mixed/lukewarm reviews and focusing on great performances (see The Iron Lady, Bohemian Rhapsody).

    Darlings, I can’t even imagine how Angelina Jolie pulled off her win. Literally 0 critic groups awarded her, but she swept the season except for the BAFTA for a movie that wasn’t a critical nor box office success. It is so strange.

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    It is a weird win in retrospect, but I think the HFPA pretty much started her sweep by choosing to reward the it-girl’s coronation into Hollywood as opposed to the critically successful indie performances of that year like Sevigny and Keener (in typical fashion,) and SAG and the Oscars just followed suit. I think that Sevigny would have won the Oscar had she won the Globe that year.
