    I came upon the 2010 March issue of Vanity Fair, and on the cover are the then-emerging young actresses.

    Of the 9 women on the cover, Emma Stone is the first Oscar winner. Mulligan and Seyfried are both in the running to get their first Oscar this year.

    What are your thoughts about these actresses back then and now? Do they live up to their potential? Is there anyone in this generation who surpassed these women?

    Also, I guess diversity was non-existent at that time…

    Mia Wasikowska is very talented. It’s a shame she hasn’t really gone anywhere with her career.

    Who are the rest who aren’t Seyfried, Mulligan, Stone or Wasikowska lol?

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    Although the process is slow and there’s pretty much no change with award nominations, we’ve come a long way with diversity, looking at this makes me uncomfortable and that’s not a detriment on the girls talent here but the industry trying so hard to look the other way to ingore poc is a talent. Also Abbie Cornish is a waste of a spot I should’ve went to olivia wilde because of Tron.

    Whew Chile that cover is lily white. 👀

    I’m so glad there are more WOC representing cinema.

    we’ve come a long way with diversity

    This was published March 2010, remember from this very awards season when Mulligan was hailed as the exciting great movie star but it was barely a week after the Oscar ceremony ended until the “Is there a place for Gabby Sidibe in the industry” pieces began. Some even beginning immediately after TIFF.

    Mulligan’s coverage

    Carey Mulligan braves “It Girl” status

    Carey Mulligan: The Overnight Star

    Carey Mulligan in An Education: A Star Is Born

    A Modern Star Is Born: Teenage wannabe to new Audrey Hepburn

    Sidibe’s coverage

    Can talent outweigh size in Hollywood?

    “Gabourey Sidibe Is Enormous, Will Never Work Again“ – Howard Stern

    Gabourey Sidibe isn’t too fat for Hollywood, she’s too Black.

    After Precious, does Hollywood have a place for Gabourey Sidibe?

    Will Sidibe’s size limit her career?

    Even she herself said back in 2009 she was doubtful of a career because “people look at me and don’t expect a lot“.

    Nothing against either one of them but yeah, I’m not surprised Sidibe (or someone like her) wouldn’t be included in a shoot like this of “the next great stars of tomorrow” when most of the industry was even wondering if she would ever work again from the 15 months between Sundance and the ceremony.

    Oscars FYC:

    "Lamb" – International Feature and all categories

    "Summer of Soul" – Picture, Film Editing and Documentary Feature

    I think Youtuber Be Kind Rewind made a video stating the exact same issue. You are 100% correct.

    Why was Evan Rachel Wood picked for this? I get the other ladies since they were all barely know or on their breakthough role at the time but she was already the lead of an Oscar nominated film (Thirteen) and had already been two hit TV shows by then (Once and Again & True Blood)

    Surprised they managed to find the spark in Emma Stone so early, she only had Superbad & Zombieland at this point (one was a tiny smart and the other was the 4th most memorable out of a 4 piece cast). Had Easy A started filming and/or was Spider-Man already in development by then?

    Mia was huge in the early 2010s. You don’t even hear her name mentioned anymore.

    Anyway, back then you could have a cover like this. Nowadays it’s “controversial”.

    I think the experience of Alice in Wonderland really put her off large scale filmmaking like that.

    It was an issue in 2010 too

    If their’s one thing that youtuber is going to do, it’s to drag Weinstien with facts.

    Carey Mulligan is in this photoshoot of “promising young actresses.” Oh, the irony.
