Ellis is probably a lock for a nomination, especially since she seems to be a low-key industry favorite. Her two Emmy nominations speak to that.
I don’t think Ruth is done yet.
Totallll lock & Ruth is far from done, yeppp 😉

just saw King Richard. I cannot believe some people are calling Aunjanue Ellis’s performance a “nothing” performance. This is the PERFECT example of a great supporting performance….and a few more scenes she would have been a great LEAD nominee. I thought she was so powerful in the film…especially the kitchen scene, of course. Just wonderful acting. She is one of the best actresses working right now and she would be a fantastic winner, imo.December 5, 2021 at 12:02 am #1204627277
What’s your problem? People think that King Richard is all about Smith (he’s not good) Ellis mops the floor with him.
Will Smith not good? We apparently did not watch the same film…because he absolutely deserving of his frontrunner status, and would be a very worthy winner. He was amazing.December 5, 2021 at 12:11 am #1204627281
The character Ellis plays, and her performance, is a stereotype. Strong, loving mom who chastises her husband but stands by him no matter what anyway, her arguments acting as a theatrical bluff in an attempt to gain power in the relationship, but actually always knowing underneath that she will do what she’s told if he puts his foot down.
Ellis adds little beyond the obvious to the performance. She plays all those surfaces as well as can be asked, but it’s merely surface.
Dunst’s performance is significantly worse on a pure skill standpoint of being completely in command of the choices she tries to make for the character, but what she has to do is more difficult, there’s a deeper level of humanity trying to be displayed. A greater degree of fear and anguish.
The intellectual content that surrounds Dunst’s character makes her far more appealing to think about and examine. Despite her performance being worse.
She’s not a BLACK stereotype. I believe that is what the poster meant.December 5, 2021 at 1:28 am #1204627312
Just saw Passing and I’ll be pissed if Ruth Negga doesnt get nominated.The definition of an amazing Supporting performance.December 5, 2021 at 2:21 am #1204627354

The way they made me doubt her..
If Laura Dern can win/be nominated for that supporting performance,so can Aunjanue Ellis.December 5, 2021 at 3:14 am #1204627388This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 5, 2021 at 3:15 am #1204627390This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 5, 2021 at 3:48 am #1204627414This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 5, 2021 at 4:50 am #1204627480

It’s interesting how DeBose and Moreno have only made it in at Detroit so far together. Of course that doesn’t necessarily mean anything for the televised awards and Oscars but is interesting.
"The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.December 5, 2021 at 9:08 am #1204627737
Dunst is amazing in the power of the dog. She’s taking the Oscar.December 5, 2021 at 9:14 am #1204627753
Huns, Oscar pundits/critics don’t learn. They overhype Ellis for that stereotypical POC woman performance meanwhile Ruth Negga gives something so special and unique never seen before and girl is fighting for a nom.
These people are so basic.Not now
