    Her character is very sexualized in that movie

    It’s not meant to be a movie where people watch it and immediately want to start doing the two knuckle shuffle, no matter how many times she gets nude in it. It’s not by any means meant to be a sexy movie and people who watch it understand that (at least I’m willing to believe that)

    Fair point, but Larson’s is a role in which there is literally nothing to do with sex appeal. She doesn’t take off her clothes or have sex on screen, it was just an emotionally challenging role that she did incredibly well and she won an Oscar for it. She was an ingenue, sure, but that was a devastating performance that had nothing to do with how hot she is or whatever.

    Ugh, I’m talking about the sex appeal of the actresses themselves, not the role. Why do you think these people campaign? There are plenty of examples of super-attractive actresses “dressing-down” and winning an Oscar. In fact, one of the most notorious examples of this phenomenon was Grace Kelly for “The Country Girl” in 1954 over Judy Garland. This type of shit HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. It might not be the only reason they win, but it’s definitely part of the reason they win.

    This conversation is so dumb yet so entertaining.

    It’s gloriously stupid, isn’t it? I’m done.

    Fair enough, but I don’t know that I agree with you. And again, Carey should be considered as possibly getting a boost from that too.

    I think it’s time to move on from this conversation

    Speaking of Andra Day, why was her song not nominated again? Was it ineligible or something? I forgot.

    The last ingenue win was Brie Larson. She played a rape victim.

    Day is not going to get votes over the others because she was more naked in her movie. The attractiveness of an actress may play a role in voters’ minds, but in this case 3/5 of them are under 40 and “hot”.

    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)

    Yes and yes. It’s the last staw to grasp and an absolutely cherry on the Actress Thread top. Carry on. 🙂

    The recent trend has favored over 40 actresses. This could be between Viola and Frances. 🤔

    I’m pretty sure it was shortlisted, so not sure whether to blame visibility or the music branch being weird as per usual.

    Not sure if it was typo, but the song wasn’t shortlisted.

    Yes the song was not even shortlisted which is surprising since there’s usually filler in the song shortlist. It was either ineligible or just underseen or the music branch did not care for the song.

    The shortlists were made in late January. I doubt anybody had seen The US vs BH.
