    Well, she’s terrific in Selena and Out of Sight, so why not? She’s working all the time.
    Personally I was happy to see Keke Palmer.

    Jlo was good in Hustlers and a nomination would be cute but I feel like the critics were overhyping her a bit tbh. She only had 2 “WOW! give her an Oscar” scenes and they were very very small scenes.

    She doesn’t have an Oscar scene. Her last scene had potential to be one and her little argument with Wu after they get out of jail, but she really doesn’t have any.

    I feel like people are underestimating Smith. Downton Abbey is absolutely dominating the box office. While it might only have a 64% Metacritic score, it has a 84% on Rotten Tomatoes and with its box office reception and global popularity I could see it pulling through with at the very least Smith getting in at BAFTA and SAG and then the Oscars.

    The thing about Smith is that I haven’t seen anyone specifically singing her praises the same way they did for JLo in Hustlers, for example. I just see people complimenting the cast as a whole. So I’m not sure she really has the buzz to be an individual nominee, although the BAFTA’s will let her in by default. And I think she’ll get an SAG nomination for cast.

    is a weak year for best supporting,she has a shot for nomination

    For the umpteenth time, this is not a weak year for Supporting Actress by any stretch of the imagination. We have about 15 to 20 performances more or less competitive for a nomination.

    Los Angeles Times- “Actress Smith, who dominated every scene she was in in the series, well and truly steals things here as well. When she insists, “I never argue, I explain,” we know we are in good hands.”

    AV Club- “As she did on the series, Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess steals the show with an endless stream of pithy one-liners, and some appreciable emotional pathos, too.”

    Reel Views- “While Smith singlehandedly steals every scene in which she appears (not surprising), her fellow actors work effectively as an ensemble.”

    Entertainment Weekly- “Dame Maggie Smith) maintains her status as the verbal ninja of landed British gentry. ”

    Vulture- “There’s a scene between Smith and Dockery late in the film, in particular, that aims straight at the tear ducts and hits a bull’s eye.”

     

    These of course aren’t to the same extent as the buzz surrounding Lopez, but obviously Smith getting Oscar buzz for Downton Abbey isn’t going to generate as much talk and click bait as Lopez is. I’m not saying Smith is necessarily more likely than Lopez because I do see the likelihood of them both making it in. But I also see Smith more likely to get in at SAG and BAFTA than Lopez.

    That’s critics who are reviewing the movie though. You’re not seeing the general public talking about Maggie Smith being Oscar worthy the way they were for JLo. For example, if you search Downton Abbey on Twitter, you just get people talking about the film. If you searched Hustlers on Twitter back when it debuted at TIFF, everyone was talking about JLo.

    Of course noone should be crazy about someone playing a role countless times on TV and movie like beating a dead horse (no shade against Dame Maggie, she is always wavy, she just needs to be more versatile)

    Apart from the surprising emotional range she showcases, as well as impressive physical strength in the role, (at least she didn’t have a body double dancing like a certain Oscar winner), JLo deserves the Oscar nomination for her menacing delivery of “you ungrateful little bitch” alone. Definitely stanning her this year. Wu was also impressive. A surprisingly enjoyable and timely movie.

    If you check out my post on the Downton thread you’ll see that Smith more than has the reviews to support a nomination

    Obviously not in the same way as for JLo (but then you have to remember she’s a pop star with a fan following) but Smith also definitely has general public talking about her. Just searching her name into Twitter reveals loads of tweets praising her performance and touting her for Oscar recognition.

    Smith definitely has the reviews to get in… and the scenes..

    We already know that HFPA and SAG especially love Maggie and love her in this role. I would not be surprised at all if BAFTA also nominated Smith. If she receives those three precursors I have a hard time seeing her left out at the Oscars. Even with just two of those three I still think she could get in.

    Added to the fact that Downton is extremely popular in The Academy’s demo and that it is doing very well financially, it’s hard for me to not have her in my current 5.

    SAG and The Emmys overlap with Oscar voters and they have given her multiple wins for this role.

    I think this may be a case where Downton isn’t as popular in the internet and the awards conversation since it’s primary audience is people who don’t use forums and Twitter as much. Come time for the industry precursors, I think a lot more people will start putting Smith in.

    Lopez obviously has more buzz than anyone else in the category right now. I mean that will change when more stuff comes out but I don’t think a lack of buzz or awareness is going to be her problem.

    I thought Lopez was…. good.

    I also think that if she wasn’t such a famous pop star there would be absolutely no talk about her getting an Oscar nom. I think it’s simply that she exceeded people’s expectations, not that she was astounding.

    I personally thought she was really convincing until it came time for her to be vulnerable and show sadness, that scene outside the station with Wu could’ve been so much more than it was. It was really obvious she was trying so hard to cry but it just wasn’t happening.

    That’s why I’m not completely sold on JLo. I liked her performance but like I said before, she has only 2 showy scenes and they’re very very short. It doesn’t seem like a performance the Academy will favour. I was sold for a second when the scene with Wu where she was yelling at her came then when it showed them crying and I saw ZERO tears or vulnerability I was like
