All three were lead.November 11, 2015 at 8:44 pm #197932
100% lead, just as Streep and Moore. The Hours is a movie about the life of three women. None of the three is supporting anyone. The three of them have their own equally important arcs. So, the three are leads. There’s just no argument to sustain that one of them could be a supporting character.November 12, 2015 at 1:15 am #197933This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.November 12, 2015 at 4:04 am #197934This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 7, 2015 at 11:44 pm #197936
She’s leading, although the performance does seem shorter then the other two.April 5, 2020 at 8:51 pm #1203411814This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 7, 2020 at 3:43 pm #1203414796
Kidman, Moore, and Streep are all leads. It’s three-lead movie. If I had to chose one lead I’d pick Kidman. Despite having the least amount of screen time of the three, the film is ultimately about Virginia Woolf. We open and close the movie with her and her words and her life and her work, specifically Mrs. Dalloway, literally influences the lives of the women that come after her, in this case Moore’s and Streep’s characters. Her presence was felt throughout the film whereas I can’t say the same for the other two women.April 7, 2020 at 9:31 pm #1203415124This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 7, 2020 at 10:07 pm #1203415150
Lead and deserving of her Oscar.April 8, 2020 at 2:39 am #1203415318
I tend to go all Supporting in the cases like this movie.
Her screentime is pretty minimal too, so I would say Supporting.December 25, 2020 at 4:19 pm #1203945219
Even if the editor had cute 5 minutes of her already small screentime I still would consider Nicole Kidman as a lead performance in The Hours. All three women were lead. I’d say, however, ranking the performances from the most leading to the less leading: Streep > Kidman > Moore.
It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!January 23, 2021 at 9:05 am #1203997593
I think she qualifies as lead, because while she doesn’t have as much screentime as one would think a lead should have, the whole film is tied together through the narrative of Virginia Woolf and her novel Mrs. Dalloway.Not now
