    Campion winning would be absolutely awesome.

    It’s a shame that we think our favourite directors & films need  the validation of a politicised popularity contest, but here we are.

    Yeah……… sigh, I agree.

    Not just directors, but as a Dunst stan, I’d be FINE watching her incredible work for the rest of my life, but it is a little like…..c’mon man, give her the damn Oscar so she can get the roles she wants because as of now she’s making so few films! Unlike prolific actresses like Kidman and Adams, she’s SO PICKY! I’d like to see her get the kind of Women Talking-Frances McDormand projects that make me so excited for the future of movies, y’know?

    Yes, it’s Dunst’s time for the nomination and win, she’s so overdue.

    My feeling is, if we are going to have Oscars, and they are supposed to reward the Best, they should in fact reward the best. AMPAS get it wrong more often than right, but I always relish the chance for them to get it right.

    Yeah for sure. There’s legit great films this year that are in the mix, in the conversation and would be historic wins. I wish Petite Maman was in there but I’m happy TPOTD, The Lost Daughter are at least, and I’m hoping Flee and Passing get critical boosts. Flee, TPOTD, TLD would be fantastic BP wins; Passing is not as good as those perhaps but it contains a Tessa Thompson acting achievement that would be historic and amazing & yeah, I’m hoping AMPAS gets it right.

    Dunst’s performance is also Oscar-worthy (The Beguiled probably was nod-worthy, this is win-worthy, even if it’s not, I dunno, Melancholia) so I think recognizing her due with this really works. It wouldn’t be an undeserved-only-because-overdue win for me so 🤷🏽‍♂️

    How can Dunst be overdue for a win at the Oscars when she has never been nominated?
    Overdue is someone like Paul Thomas Anderson nominated 8 times I think or before him Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock.

    Dunno why this bothers people so much. Feel free to quibble about how overdue must necessitate prior nominations, but there are people who use it to mean people who have never been nominated and should’ve been many times and won by now (like Janney, King were said to be & Blunt, Dunst, Carrey are said to be). No need to quibble over the word, there’s no standard Oscar Dictionary definition. That doesn’t diminish PTA in the least, in fact I’m pretty sure Dunst stans and PTA stans have a lot of overlap, so relax lol

    Dunst is undoubtedly overdue a nomination. I think this will increase her chances of winning the whole thing

    Overdue a win could refer to a large number of noms without a win- hello Thomas Newman.

    Confession: I kinda wish Jane Campion would make another film based off a Thomas Savage book because A, they’re ALL autobiographical and his mother (Rose, played by Dunst) appears as different characters in all of them, B, THEY’RE SO GOOD. There’s one called The Sheep Queen which is based on Savage’s grandmother, super headstrong matriarch. She’s Savage’s mother’s mother, and honestly even looking at TPOTD the film I really wish Campion would make it because I’d be pretty darn curious as to Rose’s family, hehehe, and also I kinda missed Johnny (the father who killed himself who is in the TPOTD the novel). Anyway, highly recommend the book too, in case anybody is curious. Savage >>> Steinbeck for me.

    Also: did anyone notice that Rose had TOO MANY PAST LIVES? Lol she played piano for the moving pictures (she says this), she was also at some point a florist (you see Rose gardening briefly + Peter mentions this), we see her keeping an inn—what DIDN’T she do?!?! Why didn’t Campion get rid of one old career lololol, she literally kept them ALL

    Playing pianos for the moving pictures sounds like a part-time gig. It’s perfectly reasonable for someone to be a florist and an innkeeper at different points in her life, as well as doing a side job now and then.

    Yeah lol, you’re right, but I can only confirm that because I’ve read the book, and how…………. did you know it was like a part-time gig? 😉 I’m not sure most contemporary audiences would, I certainly didn’t until the book made it clear it was a very working-class profession. It’s a very smart historical observation, it’s a compliment, I promise lol. When I first read that in the book I was like “hmmmmmmmm was her family rich or sumfin??” Turns out no, but…

    I have one very big, very substantial problem with the film however, and it has to do with the fact that one does not simply cast Adam Beach for a 2-second part, especially when that part is Native American and has his own POV in the book.

    That whole scene plays totally differently in the book FYI. I don’t know what you guys took away from it. The valence is changed, but I’m pretty sure the intention is mostly the same. That was a mistake (From looking at Adam Beach’s filming schedule, I’m guessing the 3-month pandemic break had something to do with it but still…)

    Decisions are always made as to what to omit from an adaptation. The Native American storyline in the book is a good one, but I assume Campion wanted to focus on the character studies of the main protagonists. Wonder if she’s been asked about this?
