    I agree. The stars are aligning for him. Seems like it could be a DDL in TWBB type performance. He’s coming

    I thinkkkkkk TPOTD will be a major contender and player for BP but it won’t win. But Jane Campion seems well-placed to win to me. Cumberbatch is VERY well-placed to win, he arguably doesn’t even need the film to hit BP.

    Neither Cumberbatch nor Dunst actually need the film to hit BP to get nominations imo, but it is unlikely that both will win unless she goes supporting, in which case…yes, it’s possible. Dunst has her never-nominated narrative and even though you’re not seeing a still of her & the synopsis seems muchhhhh juicier for Cumberbatch, trust me, her role—and the trajectory it takes—is gold. We’ve never seen Cumberbatch do a role like this before for sure, we’ve seen Dunst do shades of this role before—but where it goes, we haven’t seen her go…not really.

    But yes, even if somebody had just read the book and knew nothing else they’d say this is most likely to be a Best Lead Actor vehicle above everything else. Because that’s how good Cumberbatch’s role is (There Will Be Blood is an amazing comparison. I actually think it might even be a better role [not saying performance])

    The one thing I will put against Cumberbatch as he is not a baity performer like DDL, whom ate up every scene he is in. Cumberbatch is a more subtle and reserved character actor which may not instantly appeal to the academy’s sensibilities. The role may be juicy but the performance may not be. I just need to put that out there.

    I need to read this book. I just finished Passing and I bought this book to read next. Very excited for it.

    Crackleking I agree with you about Cumberbatch, but the plot makes it seem like a much more extreme role, not a subtle one. Or maybe both. Again, I must read the book!

    I’m hoping for Jane Campion to finally win Director, and Kirsten Dunst to win her first Oscar on her first nomination which is the only appropriate way to reward her for all those unrewarded years.

    I don’t know, Cumberbatch can definitely go bigger and louder if he wants. The role is going to call for a lot of different kind of sides and I feel like he’s going to nail them. Only concern is the accent, but honestly even if that’s not perfect I don’t think it’ll hurt his chances if the film’s a success and he gives a great performance.

    I think an advantage Cumberbatch and Dunst have on their side is they haven’t been in any big prestige projects like this in quite sometime. In particular, Dunst has a pretty good comeback narrative in store.

    Plemons could easily become overshadowed because his character is a lot quieter and reserved by nature, but we saw last year how they’re not opposed to nominating quiet performances if the film gets enough acclaim (Yeun in Minari). If the film does well, I think he’s in particularly since he has a lot of goodwill in the industry.

    You know? I would’ve been a lot more skeptical about Cumberbatch if it wasn’t for the fact that THE Nina Gold was the casting director. I like Cumberbatch, I don’t love him (I don’t think he was deserving of a nod for The Imitation Game for instance). He did a pretty good Midwestern accent on August: Osage County, not too worried about that plus obviously they had a dialect coach. I think he’s had quite a few prestige projects? He hasn’t gravitated to indie films and TV shows like Dunst has, he’s (unfortunately) made a lot of those stolid British prestige drama-type films (after Sherlock).

    I agree re: Plemons. He’ll have plenty of screen time, and with the two brothers it’s a study of contrasts because George is the sweet, portly one (Phil is super studly in the book lol) who manages to woo Rose. I think the film will hit and therefore Plemons is almost a sure thing.

    Rose is an incredible character, especially for what happens to her, what she does, etc. etc. Dunst has a LOT to play with as well and the thing is: she’s done shades of this stuff many times before. If she goes in supporting…yeah, she can easily win. It’s a co-lead role that’ll dominate in supporting. In Lead it might be tougher unless she becomes a frontrunner with the Volpi. And yeah, whatever you want to call it, an overdue narrative or a comeback narrative, she has it, there’s no question.

    The most intriguing factor for me is Kodi Smit-McPhee. It’s a more substantial role than Plemons’ and it is so good. It could launch this kid’s career into the stratosphere.

As much as I want this film to hit, if Cumberbatch is not REALLY baity it won’t hit, and in that case I worry for his career because you cannot get a baitier role than this. The film needs Cumberbatch and Dunst both to get raves. Plemons just needs to be his solid, consistent self, the role doesn’t require that much out of him and he’s done it all before so I think he’ll do a great job. If Smit-McPhee fucks up, well that kinda fucks up the ending, but with some clever editing you can hide it and still make it work lol.

    I’m reading the book, I’m at the first 30-40s pages. I’s very good and already moving. Looking forward to the cast that will for sure deliver, but I’m mostly hyped for Cumberbatch who, imho, is one of the best working today and I was a bit tired to see him only in Marvel stuff (or in unfortunate projects, or in cameos). Also big fan of Campion here. I’ll be at Venice Festival and can’t wait to see this movie, it should play on September 2nd.

    She can! She definitely, definitely can. Better role than McKenzie (though who knows about McKenzie, she’s a composite character). If the film manages to hit all 4 categories (Dunst in lead), I’d say one of Conroy and McKenzie could get in. Conroy has a lot more material in the book than I remembered.

    Personally I do think that Cumberbatch’s performance will hit but don’t expect it to be on the level of DDL in TWBB. DDL is much more dedicated, method actor than Cumberbatch. Saying that I am willing to call him the frontrunner as I expect the performance and the film to be good enough to drag him there.

    Fair to be skeptical. I am too. The role is definitely amazing enough. Whether he reaches the meteoric heights with it is obviously up to him and we don’t know yet.
