    look i dont know about usa,but here in europe nobody knows she exist

     

    I’d disagree with this (London). Sure, she doesn’t have the same degree of international fame as some of her peers but she is known. She’s worked on a number of more mainstream projects recently so even if people can’t name specific roles they’ve seen her in, they’d recognise her face.

    If the performance is there I hope she gets in over less deserving nominees that aren’t acclaimed and have little passion but receive nominations because it’s an unusually weak year.

    Late releases that made a splash at the Oscars.

    2018: Vice
    2017: Phantom Thread, The Post
    2016: Hidden Figures
    2015: The Revenant, The Big Short
    2014: Selma, American Sniper.

    The list goes on and on. Bombshell and Little Women could easily be next.

    Only thing that is giving me pause about Alfre is the release date. but like I said she fits the bill to be the next passion pick.

    45 Years has been released in US on 23 Decemeber and also by a small distributor Sundance Selects. Neon people just have to talk with Sundance Selects team behind Dame Charlotte’s nomination. They also had very small campaign budget but showed movie and sent Charlotte where it counted the most pre and during voting time. I’m sure Alfre will be game for it too. Doing awards circuit can be fun sometimes, especially when you’re admired thespian.

    Not only that but it must be MUCH easier to “send” Alfre everywhere than it was to move Charlotte Rampling around or book her on shows. At least Alfre Woodard lives and works in the US.

    Also, nobody knows Alfre Woodard? In Europe? Please. Does it even matter? How famous is Mahershala Ali in Europe? Regina King? Brie Larson during the Room year? How famous was JK Simmons? Mark Rylance? I’m sure Monique is very popular in Europe.

    Regardless how big those movies were with Oscars (and Clemency might not be) what helps is how famous she is amongst voters, and Alfre Woodard must be VERY famous there. She’s worked for so long and with everybody. That counts more than anything. Ask Regina King, her Oscar and her 3 Emmys. They’ll tell you how much that matters.

    True. But I think your forgetting one spot that belongs to 1917.

    There is definitely passion for someone like Alfre. She is one of the most versatile actresses of her generation (quoting Wikipedia) but she was held down due to the times. That is why it was so important to see Cicely Tyson get her Honorary Oscar. Tyson was another woman that was held back based on her looks but she was extremely gifted Alfre is just as gifted as the giants from her generation (Meryl, Glenn, Jessica) but the film industry was bad for women of color during those times.

    There is definitely passion to see someone who was held back get a nomination/win. Only Neon can mess this up. Even if the film only has decent reviews, with the right campaign, she is in. For those that say she is unknown, maybe in European standards she is. But if an actress has 19 Primetime Emmy nominations (3 wins) and an Oscar nomination, then maybe there is simply a lack of knowledge on your end.

    …my opinion

    Okay, I’m starting to be convinced that Zellweger will win now. The odds are stacked against her, but the buzz is very on her side.

    Her career was derailed for a while. Hollywood loves comebacks.
