    She got the speaking voice down, but I’m just not seeing Whitney at all.

    Ackie looks interesting but I don’t think I’ll check it out to find out for myself lol.

    Maybe it’s just me but I feel no different about this movie than I did before seeing it (both in terms of my Oscar predictions and my thoughts of this movie). Just as before it looks like Ackie could be a sole contender on the basis that her performance might be good and the film could be a commercial hit. And likewise at the same time my thoughts on this film’s purpose just being that of a studio trying to capitalise off of Whitney Houston as some sort of intellectual property remain the same.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Interview with Naomi. Kasi calls Ackie “phenomenal” in the role

    Its very telling that you’d compare a BLACK woman to a man. Where are the mods, chile?

    The youtube comments are surprisingly VERY positive! This could be a hit

    The script sounds pretty bad, but that’s expected considering it’s from the “writer of Bohemian Rhapsody”.

    I think acting wise, I wouldn’t rule her out yet. She’ll definitely get in somewhere, maybe the Globes and SAG.

    Yea the movie itself looks pretty biopic standard, but Ackie herself certainly pops. Nowadays that’s all you really need so if the movie is at all successful at the BO I’d say she has a pretty good chance of getting in.

    I hated it. The lighting is ugly, the shooting angles are horrible, the framing is totally pointless, the production design is serving Lifetime movie, the few lines of the script were generic and unintentional, it didn’t have a single cut of Ackie’s “great” acting which is worrying, and she also didn’t convince in the lip-syncing clips which is the worst of all. Surprisingly, the costumes were on point. If Chastain can win for a movie with all the same flaws (one that did as bad as it gets at the box office), Ackie should get a nomination based on the bait alone.

    I get the impression this will be an audience hit. I expect Naomi to get in.

    Stanley Tucci’s prospects in Supporting Actor are currently underrated.

    Yeah, I can see it getting a very high audience score and doing ok with critics. Better than Respect did.

    The performance is looking great, but was make up not used on her?
