    Time will only tell, but to be honest most people doesn’t know her

    True. Same with DDL. The General Public don’t know them. That’s why The General Public adore Denzel, DiCaprio, etc….

    She already was after her second win or dare I say her first win (Both are iconic)

    She already was. She was so underrated in the 00s. Finally she is getting the parts she deserves.

    Frances gets cast in Cohen Bros films, some critic darling indie directors (Wes Anderson) and has worked with a range of great directors (Alan Parker, John Boorman, Robert Altman), many woman directors opposite major stars like DeNiro, Gary Oldman and Denzel next and is now producing some major stuff.

    And coming of 2 best actress wins in her early 60s, not to mention producing the reigning best pic winner, and her saying last night she likes to work bodes well for cementing her legacy further.

    She now is tied with Katharine Hepburn for the most major Oscar wins of any actress (with 1 of those 3 being the top one – best pic) and is married to a guy who has also won 4 major oscars. No other actress can lay claim to this. She’s a cinematic legend. She’s also a Tony & Emmy winner so she’s one shot short of an EGOT.

    I’m very impressed with the career renaissance she’s experienced in the last five years. I really think three billboards changed the way her legacy will be viewed for better in the years to come.

    The average person doesn’t know who DDL is either, that is not a metric for what makes one a film legend. Anyone who follows movies knows who McDormand is.

    What it must be like in the McDormand-Coen household, 8 naked gold men sitting on the mantle place.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    Katharine Hepburn and Frances Mcdormand shared a lot of similarities.

    1. Both won 3+ Best Leading Actress (1 in early years, other 2 in decades later)

    2. Both have partners powerful in film industry

    3. Both are known for playing strong female characters

    4. Both are “I don’t care about publicity” kind of actresses

    5. Both have unique and straightforward personalities

    As a young man, I first knew who Mcdormand was in 2018 when 3BB was released. Soon she became my favorite living actress after watching 10+ other works from her. I’m thrilled to witness my fav reach her career peak in her 60s now.

    Mantelpiece display would suggest they give a damn. I reckon they’re under the kitchen sink, in the boiler cupboard, propping up that broken shelf they’ve not had time to fix yet. Unless her whole ambivalence is another act.

    FYC:

    Virginie Efira, Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson, Benedetta (Actress, Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor)

    Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, The Duke (Actor, Supporting Actress)

    Lol that sounds very possible. Powerful couple indeed!

    Unlike McDormand, Hepburn has attended Oscars only once to present a special award.
