    Last night, Frances McDormand picked her her third and fourth Oscars for Best Picture as a producer of Nomadland and for Best Actress for the same film (which makes her only the second actress to win the category three times along with Katharine Hepburn). Does this make her a film legend or someone that The Academy extremely overrates?

    I hope her 3rd win makes people recognize other great actresses and stop defaulting to Meryl as the “greatest actress of all time” or whatever.

    So happy for Frances.

    Mmmm, a low key legend. A “I don’t care I’m a legend”.

    The heir of Katharine Hepburn.

    I would also argue she already was a legend…but I do feel that her ease and lack of care at the glamour of it all will be something that makes her stand out to those who look back throughout this era of entertainment history.

    Also, having 3 acting wins certainly doesn’t hurt.

    She was already a legend but this cements it even more.

    Mainstream people actually know Streep. Many don’t know much about McDormand. She hasn’t had the commercial hits Streep has had in her career.

    Streep is a chameleon when it comes to acting. McDormand can only play an angry no-nonsense lady as she always has that expression on her face. Streep may have been overused, but that’s because there aren’t better options. Which actress of her age do you think could have done The Prom? Streep remains the greatest and the Academy needs to apologise to her for keeping her waiting for so long before her third win simply because she didn’t have best picture contending movies. It is best actress in a leading role, not best actress in a best picture frontrunner. McDormand is a film legend with less diverse work.

    Most of my friends can’t even name 3 films where she acted.

    Film legend? yes (mainly with critics, actors and cinephiles)
    Movie star? Not even close
