    I’m sure there are a lot of actors/actresses out there who have serious Oscar potential, but they just keep getting the wrong roles.

    List some people who you think fit that category.

    I don’t even need to say her name because it’s just so obvious.

    Amy Adams could win if she had a meaty role that has a wide range of emotions, because her nominated roles are all coattails except for Junebug. Yes, she was snubbed for Arrival, but that was a subtle role and that year was VERY competitive for Best Actress.

    My ideal hopes are that she wins for a Tarantino role.

    Movie-lover overall.

    Gillian Anderson
    Christine Baranski
    Jake Gyllenhaal
    Scarlett Johansson
    Sandra Oh
    Saoirse Ronan

    I would say Margot Robbie but she doesn’t need the right role because she’s already getting all the right roles like Nicole Kidman was lol.

    I will say that Kirsten Dunst does not belong here because it seems no matter what she does it doesn’t really matter to AMPAS. She’ll get nominated and win the first time with little notice, most likely

    Neil Patrick Harris – he is such an energetic performer and could kill it in a musical. To be honest, had The Prom been a better movie and Neil played Corden’s role, I could have seen him be in Oscar conversation. Just look at his Tony opening number. The man is a born showman with charisma and charm to spare.

    Colin Farrell – he is my all-time favorite actor and I just can’t believe that he didn’t win for In Bruges and wasn’t nominated for The Lobster (not that he could have done any damage to Casey Affleck’s performance, but still). If Martin McDonagh’s upcoming project featuring him and Brendan Gleeson is embraced by the Academy, watch out for them righting the wrongs they did in 2009.

    Mads Mikkelsen – maybe third time’s the charm for him and Vinterberg. Because of the Globes fuckery he has no chance to get in this year and he wouldn’t have been competitive for the win anyway but I think there is potential because he also seems to be well-liked in the industry and has done several big blockbusters with huge casts (Star Wars, Bond, Marvel, soon Harry Potter).

    Ewan McGregor – I have a feeling he is almost taken granted by now but the man has some serious chops and could be one of those guys who wins on his first nomination as soon as he gets a juicy role in a baity project. And there seems to be some kind of McGregorssance going on in Hollywood (the new Star Wars series, Doctor Sleep, Birds of Prey).

    Emily Blunt – she will win for her first transformative and baity role. It’s ridiculous that she still doesn’t have a single nomination. What I love about her is that she gives her most in any movie she’s in. She’s as fantastic in a sci-fi thriller like Edge of Tomorrow as she is in period dramas.

    Others I can see becoming names to look out for in terms of wins sooner or later are Elizabeth Debicki, Rebecca Ferguson, Ana de Armas, Robert Pattinson and Jon Hamm.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    her nominated roles are all coattails except for Junebug

    I do not know why so few people seem to say this. YES, 100%. Why Amy Adams has “overdue” status with entirely coattail nominations is just beyond me.

    I love Amy, but I feel like she already tried that with Hillbilly Elegy. Honestly I thought she was good in that movie, but it felt like she was just trying to win an Oscar.

    I’m hoping that Not Fade Away becomes a hit so that Blunt could sweep

    This describes all Amy Adams roles, including the only one since Junebug that she was actually deserving for (Arrival).

    I mean, couldn’t you say just about any actor could win an Oscar if they got the right role though?

    But Vinterberg is winning now, isn’t he? I think Mads can win in Supporting playing a villian in a big Hollywood film. He hasn’t landed in an Oscar movie yet, but it’s just matter of time considering that the industry really seems to like him.

    Emily Blunt had too many false starts already. It’s happening anytime now
