    Starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield, the film takes a look at the lives of fallen televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker.

    Looks like a major Best Actress and Make up contender.

    Thoughts?

    Garfield will go supporting. Just a hunch since vehicles propping up female characters are rarely seen as dual partnerships for prizes. I’m just glad Chastain is back.

    The real life Tammy Faye always creeps me out when I see a special on her on tv and and all that kinda stuff. I’m also wondering if she still has supporters that will complain about any negative depecictions in it….god I hope not but it’s a weird world out there

    Jessica Chastain will probably be the best part about the movie.

    Andrew Garfield is very easily the most underrated actor of his generation, and he lowkey built a terrific body of work throughout the years.
    He should be regarded at the same level of actors of his same age range like Adam Driver and Robert Pattinson.
    I hope with this movie he gets another Oscar nomination.

    This movie will need to stomp in order for Chastain to snatch, and that’s not happening, so I’ll just be rooting for her to simply make an Oscars comeback with the nod. This year looks so weak McDormand is literally coming for 4th Oscar.

    . I think she has four already: Fargo, 3bem, n, and bp for nomad land

    Ok I’ll bite. With at least about twenty performances plausibly gunning for a win, most of them by huge stars, I need you to explain how this year looks weak.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg:

    Margot Robbie, Amsterdam (or Canterbury Glass or whatever the movie’s called)
    Ana de Armas, Blonde
    Halle Berry, Bruised
    Frances McDormand, The Tragedy of Macbeth
    Jennifer Hudson, Respect
    Kirsten Dunst, The Power of the Dog
    Florence Pugh, Don’t Worry Darling
    Jessica Chastain, The Eyes of Tammy Faye
    Marion Cotillard, Annette
    Amanda Seyfried, A Mouthful of Air
    Kristen Stewart, Spencer
    Lady Gaga, House of Gucci
    Cate Blanchett, Nightmare Alley
    Vanessa Kirby, Italian Studies
    Olivia Colman, The Lost Daughter
    Jennifer Lawrence, Don’t Look Up
    Martha Plimpton, Mass
    Rachel Zegler, West Side Story
    Thomasin McKenzie, Last Night in Soho
    Tessa Thompson, Passing
    Tilda Swinton, Three Thousand Years of Longing
    Ruth Negga, Passing
    Juliette Binoche, Fire
    Sandra Bullock, Unforgiven
    Emilia Jones, Coda
    Naomi Harris, Swan Song
    Abigail Breslin, Stillwater
    Jennifer Lawrence, Red, White and Water

    As for Chastain, I agree that The Eyes of Tammy Faye is probably not the movie to get her an Oscar, but it could be the movie that catapults her back in the awards game the way she was a few years ago. The Good Nurse seems baity and could further solidify her status next year.

    That was a very zany trailer. Not sure how I feel about it. Even if it receives negative reviews, I could still see Chastain picking up some precursor nominations.

    I can literally at the moment can see this going two ways, this flops and becomes forgotten, or is mid range decent and snatches her the Oscar ala Renee Zellweger

    I think the makeup artists who remember Tammy Faye Bakker and what she looked like will secure it a makeup nomination, in the least, and I agree that Jes will be a strong contender to get nominated as well.

    The makeup style is accurate sure but the prosthetics look… not great.

    I’m impressed with the trailer. It’s the tone that I’m expecting given that it is directed by Michael Showalter. I can see Jessica Chastain being an Oscar contender.
