Calling it now, after the Globe win, The Mauritanian will be Foster’s Adaptation/Angels In America.March 1, 2021 at 12:56 pm #1204074812
Honestly with how wide open supporting actress is right now and how weird the year is, who knows maybe Foster could somehow end up on that stage in a couple months. The movie’s only JUST coming out so if it becomes successful enough it would become the perfect safe, respectable choice for the academy to go with to avoid all the other messy choicesMarch 1, 2021 at 1:15 pm #1204074869
Both McDormand and Foster will do it this year. Amazing.March 1, 2021 at 3:58 pm #1204075174
What does that mean? She’s going to win an Emmy?
The 1-2 punch Adaptation & Angels In America is what set into motion for Streep, the idea of “maybe she should get a 3rd?” for the next decade.
Think The Mauritian will do the same for Jodie, she gets more projects after this year and with 30-40 years without a win, they’ll be a consensus of “maybe she should get a 3rd” like Streep got.March 1, 2021 at 11:35 pm #1204075957
It feels a bit strange because McDormand isn’t venerated by the general public as much as she should be for someone who has 2 Oscars and could very well win her 3rd very soon. I always thought it would be Jessica Lange or Sally Field, but McDormand’s doing far more interesting work.
I think it’s going to be a little while for Cate Blanchett. I don’t actually think we’ve been getting great performances from her recently, even if she is great, but regardless of that: if she couldn’t win a 3rd for Carol, I feel like she’d need both a very strong film AND a narrative to elevate her to Meryl Streep status immediately. I don’t know if anybody’s in a hurry to do that right now.March 2, 2021 at 6:39 am #1204076265
McDormand and Foster won’t win a third one this year.
It’s Blanchett.March 2, 2021 at 7:46 am #1204076431
I think McDormand is a threat to win for Macbeth next year, especially if she loses for Nomadland this year.
I can see both McDormand and Washington getting their 3rd Oscars for this next year, which will be quite glorious.March 2, 2021 at 8:29 am #1204076516
I always thought it would be Jessica Lange
After her outstanding 3rd act career run this past decade on television, I kinda feel she’s gotten enough goodwill to win the to push herself to a 3rd win the second she’s gets a film part that’s even slightly in contention at all.
Not sure if this is a help or hindrance but her two Oscar wins aren’t really looked about that fondly / aged well. Tootsie even then was always “sorry about Frances” prize that robbed Teri Garr and Blue Sky, is well, it’s Blue Sky.March 2, 2021 at 8:30 am #1204076520

Bah, too much competition next year for McDormand to win.March 2, 2021 at 2:32 pm #1204077588
Where is Dianne Wiest? She could also win a 3rd with the right role.
McDormand has the best chance right now, Blanchett will surely win again.March 2, 2021 at 2:45 pm #1204077617
Who else is in the competition? Haven’t caught up with potential nominees for the next award season.
Dunst and Robbie are the frontrunners for 2022 I think.
And if Foster wins, the 13-year-old me would be so happy. She’s the first actress I’ve ever stanned. I don’t even care if it’s not a great performance tbh 😬
