The movie is fine but Amy and Glenn are great. This is my favourite work from Amy aside from Sharp Objects.November 24, 2020 at 5:52 am #1203860826
When the reviews for this came out I thought critics were being too hard. Well, absolutely not. This is laughable, embarrassing and just a terrible film, both Glenn and Amy are bad too.
I would love to see them winning Oscars eventually but winning for this would be shameful and very undeserved.November 24, 2020 at 5:54 am #1203860838
glenn and amy are laughable. this film is trash.November 24, 2020 at 6:13 am #1203860915
* I want Close, Adams and Ron Howard to do a walk of shame for this movie *

Both Amy and Glenn were overacting. The thirst for awards was radiating off them.November 24, 2020 at 6:49 am #1203861135
I didn’t think it was possible for the movie to be made this poorly… What a shame. Unenjoyable is how I’d describe it.

The one year I decide to stan Glenn and the movie ends up being a complete dumpster fire MESS!
WTF was this?November 24, 2020 at 6:57 am #1203861173
the fact that glenn is actually in a very little part of this film and still managed to be the worst part of it… kinda impressiveNovember 24, 2020 at 7:03 am #1203861193

Wait what? How much of it is she in?

That was honestly awful. Some of the acting was legit terrible, and there probably wasn’t a single really developed character in the whole movie. Close was alright but her make-up and acting reminded me a bit of the Kermit scrunch face. Adams and the two guys playing Vance were pretty subpar. I don’t see this being a player at all outside of the make-up and hairstyling and maybe Close ist Supporting Actress.
By the way, how is Amy Adams being campained in Lead for this? I’d argue that she’s even more supporting than Close is.

i expected her to be category fraud but she isnt. she probably doesn’t have more than 25 minutes of screentime
So what that entire trailer was just full of her scenes lol?

Did Amy and Glenn see Oscar in their approach to “Hillbilly Elegy?” An adaption of a best selling memoir directed by an Oscar winner. It looked good on paper and here was their chance to finally take home the gold. And boy did they act towards it. Over the top – yes! All over the place – Yes! Would it bother me if they won Oscars for this mess? – hell, no. I especially wouldn’t be bothered if Amy Adams gets an Oscar nod, because she does have her moments along side her not so good moments. And Glenn, oh what a mess of a performance. She just seemed to be trying too hard to wear that gold dress again. But should we expect anything but messy performances since the movie was about messy people with messy lives messing up everyone else’s life. Yes, the movie is a big old mess! I didn’t hate it, but I can’t say I embrace it either.
So, if somehow one of these fine actresses slip through and get an Oscar for a borderline good/bad performance, so be it. They both are long overdue – I hate that I’m writing this because I hate when the Academy gives an overdue actor an Oscar passing over a much better performance. And I know there are much better performances from actresses coming this way. Kirby. Davis. McDormand. Day. Winslet.
p.s. neither one of these beautiful actresses are winning for this. I personally hope they don’t get nominations because I would hate to see Amy sitting there smiling and waving at the camera yet again as her nomination is called and clapping one again for another winning actress. And I also don’t want to see Glenn nodding again in resignation that Oscar has once again passed her by. And please don’t wear gold if somehow you get a nod.
Like the movie, this post is all over the place.
