    I’m a huge fan of Michelle Williams and have longed for her to win an Oscar for many years. Do you think she’ll ever find herself a winner? What kind or project should she tackle to get herself into the winners circle?

    Maybe for Sean Durkin’s Janis Joplin biopic!

    She will win an Oscar for a film called Manchester By The Sea, in the supporting role.

    Fingers crossed.

    Maybe Michelle Williams could win this year if Viola Davis ends up suffering the same as other actors/actress had at the Emmys when they reprised their Tony-Winning role(s) on screen.

    Won’t happen.

    Her time will come. She’s a great actress; one of the best of her generation. Oscar voters usually like loud, transformative roles so she’ll likely win when she takes on one of those. And Williams is fine in MBTS, but the role is super slight. She has about seven minutes of screen time over a 139 minute movie. There’s a reason the Spirit Awards snubbed her. I doubt she wins the Oscar if nominated.

    Not this year and people need to get over it.

    I Feel like They are going to nominate Viola in lead like Winslet in 2009

    With Bening and possibly Huppert in the category there’s no point to give Viola the boost when they can award these overdue vets in BA.

    Quoting myself from a previous thread:

    [This is] not a good comparison because Winslet’s supporting campaign looked ridiculous even to the most casual observer; she was first-billed, there was no other actor in the film with a lead campaign, and everyone thought of The Reader as a “Kate Winslet movie”. The whole thing just seemed wrong, even more so than other recent category frauds like Mara and Vikander last year, because they had co-stars campaigning in lead to distract voters from their dubious category placement. Fences has a huge Lead Actor contender in Denzel Washington, and by many accounts Viola’s role is truly supporting. Oscar voters are extremely unlikely to contradict the FYC ads in this case.

    Considering her track record of attaching herself to one fantastic project after another, I would say it’s exceedingly likely she prevails someday, perhaps even in Lead.

    I agree with above posters: she needs a loud and transformative role to win, and I can’t imagine a louder (in every sense) or more transformative role than Janis Joplin. If the film is good, it could be her ticket to the podium.

    She’s a phenomenal screen actress – she has that translucent quality about her that makes a movie star, and she always manages to capture the essence of her role while being incredibly touching and relatable. Saw her on Broadway and the magic wasn’t there, but my dog does she shine on the silver screen.
