Hello to all of you! This is my first post here, but I’ve been reading you for two years. I’d like to post this question here and see what you believe about many beloved actresses over the age of 65, who don’t seem to get any interesting parts anymore, with few exceptions.
My personal predictions are:
- Meryl Streep (heading for her fourth)
- Glenn Close (to win in 2021 for “Sunset Boulevard”, if it gets made)
- Maggie Smith (my favorite, predicting her to win Best Supporting Actress next year for “Downton Abbey”)
- Judi Dench (with a more deserving win than the 1998 one)
- Diana Rigg
- Isabelle Huppert
- Sigourney Weaver
- Lily Tomlin
- Charlotte Rampling
- Sissy Spacek
Let’s hope a good and willing writer shows up and writes a killing part for those women to help them win their first or second, third and even fourth (eyes on Meryl) golden fella.March 17, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1202819647
Streep and Smith are the ones with the bigger chances.I would also love to see Judi winning a leading oscar.
Jessica Lange winning is a reach but I won’t stop wishing it.March 17, 2019 at 1:23 pm #1202819654
I’d love to see Sigourney Weaver and Jessica Lange knock it out of the park and win, but unfortunately I don’t see it happening for either of them. Jessica rarely makes movies anymore, and she currently has no upcoming projects listed on IMDb. Sigourney still makes them, but they’re just not as interesting as the films she made in her prime. I mean, 4 out of her 6 upcoming projects on IMDb are Avatar sequels.March 17, 2019 at 1:55 pm #1202819675
I don’t see how Maggie Smith is any likelier to win than Judi Dench or Glenn Close, given that she hasn’t been nominated since 2001 and most of her 21st century filmography is Harry Potter films.March 17, 2019 at 2:14 pm #1202819694
Maggie Smith’s got Downton Abbey which could be a huge success

I wish Sally Field would get a great role in near futureMarch 17, 2019 at 4:57 pm #1202819775
Christine BaranskiMarch 17, 2019 at 5:10 pm #1202819789

I need Sigourney Weaver to get James Cameron to direct her in another Aliens movie and get that Oscar. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.March 17, 2019 at 10:06 pm #1202820049
I don’t think they’ll give Smith another Oscar for playing the same role she has played on TV for years. It would have to be really extraordinary.
I think this whole thing with Close losing has actually raised her profile. She may get more offers now than had she won. She also has some movie in development listed on IMDB that is a continuation of the Anastasia story depicting that woman in old age. So she has at least two big roles she could be considered for.March 19, 2019 at 7:14 am #1202821889
I wanna see someone who hasn’t been nominated in decades to make a comeback and win. Ann-Margret and Glenda Jackson in particular come to mind.March 19, 2019 at 7:54 am #1202821922
I would be really dissapointed if Streep won her fourth before Close wins her first. The gap between the two in terms of overall acting is extremely narrow. Close in my opinion is more talented. Her singing ability, Theater and TV work is way better than Streep.March 19, 2019 at 10:42 am #1202822148
I’m rooting for Julie Walters and Christine BaranskiMarch 19, 2019 at 3:10 pm #1202822353

I’d love Dame Julie Walters to win an oscar. She’s been nominated twice, for Educating Rita (1984) and Billy Elliot (2001). I think it’s possible that she can win if she’s in a best picture nominated film and has a big role. The majority of her recent film roles have been small but she was the best in, for example: Mary Poppins Returns, Paddington franchise, Mamma Mia 2. Her roles in those films were small but she was amazing
