One thing that hurts Stewart imo is that not many saw her film. Looking at the massive success of The Crown, why would they have such a limited release? I’m not saying that the film would have smashed, I just think it was “too independent.”
They did see the first 10 min, and that was about it, message received.
Will Smith was rewarded for exceeding everyone's expectations in endearing violent traits. Shame on the Academy!January 16, 2022 at 4:13 pm #1204732638
Don’t get me started on that Alana non-factor of a performance or mess of a movie. If we really want to talk about merit, Best Actress goes to Renate Reinsve. Otherwise, give it to Kidman for being Kidman, a survivor of 90s typecasting who is still thriving in her 50s, or Gaga for making global audiences flock to two back-to-back R-rated dramas at a time when we desperately need it.
The narrative so far this season was that the Academy can’t wait to recognise the career of Stewart, after all these indie films. I fear the Academy doesn’t care for narratives, I mean Kidman once won an Oscar, then she was coming off two big hits(Moulin Rouge and The Others) and she did a risky role that was praised, her narrative then we could say was that she is no longer Mrs. Cruise and she can do more demanding roles, while being a movie star along big A-listers(Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore).
Now, almost 20 years later, she is in her 50s playing a Hollywood Icon, she shouldn’t be rewarded just for the role, but because they consider it award worthy. I am not sure if they are gonna give a second Oscar to Kidman so easily, even the great Meryl Streep won her second Lead Actress Oscar after 30 years(1983-2012).January 16, 2022 at 4:19 pm #1204732645
It’s so sad that I have no horse in this race. Penélope, my number one this year, flopped >> everywhere <<. Kristen, who would be my second choice, is a non-factor for the win and could even miss the nomination. Olivia, my third option, has a very divisive vehicle which makes me doubt she could pull this off. From the remaining contenders I hope Kidman takes this, she delivers a very calibered and contained performance for a role that was very difficult and could’ve easily gone wrong for doing too much. Now I just hope mediocre Oscar-bait Tammy Faye doesn’t take it.
Chastain won’t win, she’s a spot filler – especially after her upcoming flop 355 where some women change the world (what a story)!

Actually, a second lead Oscar is a very big deal, don’t look how Frances managed to get second and third so close, Anthony Hopkins and Meryl Streep waited decades. They don’t give it out easily.
Most Best Actress Oscars
Katharine Hepburn: 4
Frances McDormand: 3

I guess I’ll have to accept my role as the salty Stewart fan here, but it annoys me how people talk like “WOOOOW who could have POOOOOSSIBLY liked this TERRIBLE MOVIE and this TERRIBLE PERFORMANCE” because hi! Hello! I did! It wasn’t perfect, but it was bold and creative and it kept me thinking about it after I left the theater! And Stewart didn’t remotely give an SNL parody performance, she gave a performance that displayed the range she’s been accused of lacking her whole career! For all the talk about how critics are shallow clout-chasers, people here seem just as willing to define a movie’s worth by its awards.
Taste! Some sore losers have been waiting all season for Stewart to fail so they became really brave after the SAG snub. They will keep on repeating the same thing in hopes it comes true. Oscar nominated or not this is a legendary performance already – period.January 16, 2022 at 4:33 pm #1204732670
Please. no one will care about this. She’s not a big enough star yet for people to hold her to this, plus she’s like 20?
She’s barely 19 and just got cocky on social media and tarnished her reputation – also, she looks nothing like the movie – she should thank the makeup artist of WSS.

BARF! No, we’re rooting for Olivia Colman aka the only contender with an acclaimed film AND highly raved performance.
I am rooting for Colman too, hopefully, BAFTA will hand her a better doll than the one she got pin stabbed for – and leave the statue for Nikki.January 16, 2022 at 4:40 pm #1204732685

This is superficial, but she looks stunning here. Wow.January 16, 2022 at 4:41 pm #1204732689
I mean absolutely no disrespect to Olivia but it feels pretty transparent that critics don’t want Gaga/Nicole to win and are thus rallying behind the only alternative winner.
Well Gaga did win Iowa this weekend so it’s not all critics but I see what you mean with Colman starting to pick up steam with the regionalsJanuary 16, 2022 at 4:41 pm #1204732691
Seeing how some regionals are now turning the tide, I think that again proves why the Trifectas are Trifectas. When Nyfcc awarded Lady Gaga, she was in a jeopardy situation because the film got mixed reviews and most experts instantly dropped her from Oscar predictions. HoG B.O. seems fine but there was no guarantee of any longevity, especially due to the reviews. Nyfcc was the first to award her like they just don’t give a f*ck about what others were saying. This was even before she hit GG, CCA, and AACTA so it’s a risky bet.
Same for Penelope. She missed all the industry awards except AACTA and her chance wasn’t looking good. But they just don’t care and reward her and Renate anyway. While they sometimes went for Oscar contenders, they also rewarded many foreign language actresses throughout the years.January 16, 2022 at 4:41 pm #1204732693

Actually Gaga did quite well with the more prestigious critics groups. She won NBR for ASIB and Nyfcc for HoG. Capri wasn’t huge like nyfcc but it’s an industry award. It’s always the irrelevant + self-centered film twitter critics that loves to cast doubt on her like it’s a cool thing to do.January 16, 2022 at 4:49 pm #1204732714
I don’t like the Princess Di and Stripper comparison,Plus Stewart is a good actress than Jlo. pls. but i do get what your trying to say though.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a stripper and I don’t like your implication that there is.
