    What do you think she should have won for?

    For me, Dunst should have been nominated for Interview with the Vampire and Melancholia. 2 noms, 0 wins

    Blunt should have been nominated for My Summer of Love, The Devil Wears Prada, Into the Woods, Sicario, The Girl on the Train, Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place. Winning for the The Girl on the Train/A Quiet Place. 8 noms, 2 wins.

    You do realize that if Blunt got the nom for Mary Poppins or Quiet Place, Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira wouldn’t be nominated, right?

    And she’s not getting a nom for a Nolan movie. Nolan is not an actor’s filmmaker. The last person to win an Oscar for a Nolan movie literally had to die for it.

    And besides, Blunt doesn’t seem to be interested in awards. Her upcoming slate doesn’t scream awards worthy in any capacity.

    Emily Blunt is coming for her Oscar darlings.

    I’m really curious about how large Emily Blunt’s role will be in this movie. Kitty Oppenheimer was a very complex figure. When she married Oppenheimer at age 30, he was her FOURTH husband. She was born in Germany and had falsely claimed that her father was a Prince and her mother a relative of Queen Victoria. She was a botanist and biologist— a scientist in her own right. She was also a member of the American Communist party; one of her husbands was killed in 1937 fighting in the Spanish Civil War, and in 1934, the couple had lived in a boarding house down the hall from their friend Gus Hall, who became General Secretary of the Communist Party USA. Kitty’s affiliation with the CP was one of the reasons that Oppenheimer was suspected of being a Russian Spy and had difficulty getting and keeping security clearances. I haven’t seen the screenplay, but it seems extremely unlikely this will be a typical “wife of a great man” role for Blunt.

    True. I agree with you the acting branch doesn’t resonate well with Nolan’s directed performances. That being said, Oppenheimer is a biopic which is always more awards friendly than his sci-fi works. The movie screams bait already considering it is covering Oppenheimer’s life which has been consistently covered in television and other mediums. This Oppenheimer adaptation could be the one that strikes an awards conversation when others have faltered—similar to the Princess Diana movie we have this year.

    I didn’t find either of the Roma actors Oscar worthy, especially Aparicio, so I’d be fine with that.

    Painful that Blunt in Sicario wasn’t even in the conversation because she wasn’t playing someone’s wife or mother

    Laga Gaga for Best Actress.

    House of Gucci for best picture.

    Belfast for everything - Best Picture win

    Keep in mind, that role was written for a man.

    I absolutely love Emily Blunt and I have had since The Devil Wears Prada. BUT I can’t help but say I would have preferred Amy Adams in the role of Kitty. Firstly because Amy looks more like the real person than Emily does. Secondly, Amy Adams knows how to do biopics. Thirdly, Amy Adams does alcoholic better than Emily Blunt and that is no slight to Emily Blunt. Fourthly(?), Amy Adams really needs this movie because i) She hasn’t had a box office success in a leading role since Arrival in 2016 and for all the fucked up shit Scott Rudin did in his life, I personally only hate him for demanding reshoots on and delaying The Woman in the Window, a movie that was supposed give Amy her own version of Emily’s The Girl on the Train as Window was originally scheduled to be released in early October 2019 in the same vein of Train’s early October 2016 release and Train went on to be a box office success opening to $27 million and finishing with over $170 million worldwide against about a $30 million budget and as someone who has studied box office patterns those two movies would have absolutely played the same way at the box office BUT NO because of ol’ Scotty Woman in the Window was dumped on Netflix and I would never forgive him for that, and with the Enchanted sequel heading to Disney Plus she is starting to no longer be a box office leading woman and I don’t like that for her. And lastly, if Amy doesn’t have a 2023 film that will get her an Oscar nomination, it would be her longest drought since the drought between American Hustle and Vice. And I’m OCD, so I stress about shit like that. I can’t tell you how many sleepless nights I’ve had trying to figure out when Saoirse Ronan, Emma Stone, Amy Adams and Meryl Streep are going to land their next nominations. I’m that weird.

    As I said before, I adore Emily Blunt and I’m still not over her getting snubbed for Prada, Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place (I loved her in her other roles but don’t think she deserved a nomination for those other films). And as the decision was not up to me, I’m perfectly fine with Emily in the role and I’m absolutely looking forward to seeing her land her first nomination.

    Other actors get nominated for bad movies all the time…the fact she wasn’t for this one still burns

    I love Emily Blunt but statements like these make no sense. She wasn’t nominated because she wasn’t top 5 best actress that year. The generally agreed Top 3 no matter the difference in order that year was Emma Stone in La La Land, Natalie Portman in Jackie and Isabelle Huppert in Elle. Rounding out the top 4 whether people liked it or not was Meryl Streep in Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep in a biopic where she had to physically transform and sing (albeit badly) plus her character was dying of cancer that was always going to be nominated. And lastly, we had Ruth Negga in Loving who I’m sad to admit was the weakest nominee that year imo BUT she was still in a traditional Oscar bait biopic role and was playing a civil rights icon and I hate to say it but after the #oscarsowhite thing happened two years in a row, the Academy HAD to nominate a black actor in every acting category that year. And Ruth Negga was a no brainer for Best Actress and I remember being surprised about how many people didn’t think she was going to be nominated until she was nominated.

    And so please tell me who among those five should have been snubbed to make way for Emily Blunt that year? And mind you Amy Adams in Arrival was actually fifth runner up that year not Emily Blunt.

    I’m pretty sure RDJ will easily outshine Damon and get that nomination (and maybe an overdue win).

    Well according to my 2024 Oscar predictions (yes, I have 2024 Oscar predictions, don’t @ me), both Damon and Downey would need to take several seats as nothing is going to come between Samuel L Jackson and his Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2024 for the film adaptation of The Piano Lesson which is set to begin filming in summer 2022 (hence it will release in 2023) and is produced by Denzel Washington for Netflix like Ma Rainey.

    And I also expect John David Washington in the same film adaptation of The Piano Lesson to be more of a frontrunner in the Best Actor race than Cillian Murphy in Oppenheimer.

    And also, depending on if Emily goes lead or supporting, I expect her to be given a run for her money by Danielle Brooks in The Piano Lesson who can also go lead or supporting a la Viola Davis in Fences. My money is on both actresses going supporting and Brooks winning.

    And this is kind of unrelated but if Emily does go lead, I originally thought she would get tough competition from Cynthia Erivo who I thought would definitely be starring in the film adaptation of the musical The Color Purple (which has a December 2023 release date) but as it turns out Erivo recently signed up to do the Wicked film adaptation instead (which is filming in 2022 and therefore releasing in 2023) and there is no way Wicked is winning an Oscar in my opinion but an actress like Erivo in the role of Elphaba is definitely going to be nominated but just won’t win. And until The Color Purple casts someone sensible in the lead role (and I hate to say it but the Academy won’t give a no name black actress the oscar and the lead role in The Color Purple is Oscar worthy in my opinion). My 2024 Best Actress is wide open so Emily might have a shot there.

    Although I am fully convinced that Nolan will land Best Picture and Best Director nominations for Oppenheimer. I still think his best bet for an oscar win that year would be Best Adapted Screenplay a la The Imitation Game. But if I were Nolan I would pray to all the old gods and the new that Dune: Part Two doesn’t have a Return of the King level sweep and run away with all the oscars including Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay.

    Okay, OCD rant over. Bye.

    Amy Adams will be 48 years old in 2022. Hollywood is very cruel to aging women, so Amy Adams could have very sad problems in her career in the coming years. Hollywood always prefers men. 3 of the biggest stars born her same year(1974): Joaquin Phoenix, Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio

    Yeah. It’s very sad. She is getting to that stage where she will always be playing moms. In fact, it’s already started with Dear Evan Hansen.

    Sounds shockingly bleak. I don’t think that this is going to be true. She’ll be fine. Will she be nominated for awards this regularly? Of course not. But I don’t think her career is going down the drain just because of some two-three bad movies.
