    This will only get an Adapted Screenplay nod and that’s it. Chastain won’t get in over the consensus five.

    Except, she will.

    Nothing Chastain did in Molly’s Game was worth putting her in the mix with Ronan, McDormand, or Hawkins, as an alternative front runner – so she’s down three spots immediately.

    Robbie stole all the younger actress buzz that ensnares votes in this category not unlike how Larson, Stone and Lawrence did in their respective years so that slot is taken too – one more spot down.

    Streep also won’t be left out with a picture as timely as The Post. No slots left.

    Chastain will be left scratching at the back door along with Williams and Dench, barring some major seismic shift of public sentiment for the five women listed above. Elba and Costner were better anyway.

    I couldn’t find a Mollys Game thread so I’ll just post here and relate it The the topic. This was a interesting and surprisingly funny movie with a very good, but not too 5, performance from Jessica Chastain. Idris Elba’s accent was so bad. So bad. Michael Cera was hilarious in this.

    Jessica surely can’t catch a break. Maybe this year with the Woman Walks Ahead thing?

    And then she didn’t.

    Really? I didn’t notice, Elba usually has a great American accent.

    Underestimate doesn’t apply to Jurassica unless ur talking about a GG nod.

    He usually does but not in Molly’s Game, that’s for sure. Was the character’s background ever explicitly revealed though? I automatically assumed he was probably originally from Britain because of his accent.

    I don’t think she’s going to score with WWA which already premiered in Toronto last year and didn’t register with anyone. Her ticket is likely to be George & Tammy.

    It was definitely an attempt at an American accent. The character is fictional so we can’t look to see where he was really from. The accent broke very badly whenever he had a speech.

    On the contrary the only reason it’s “being taken seriously” or is part of any discussion is because of Aaron Sorkin. What if Joe Smith had adapted and directed it? … *crickets*
