To be fair, one could say the same about Jennifer Lawrence. Other than The Hunger Games franchise which most people saw for the popular story not for Lawrence, all of her films that weren’t directed by David O Russell have flopped at the box office and with critics. Serena, Dark Phoenix, Passengers, Mother, Red Sparrow??
Passengers made over 300 million. Margot Robbie wishes she could have a flop like that.

Some of y’all are going to get mad but why do you consider Margot Robbie to be a “movie star”?
She has never had a solo hit movie and her franchise outings (Legend of tarzan, Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, The Suicide Squad 2) have all flopped.
Her only successes are with bigger male stars (Wolf of Wall street, OUATIH).
Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone both have bigger box office clout and won for movies that were huge at the BO.
Maybe Babylon and Barbie will level Margot up but at this point why is she considered a movie star by goldderby stans?February 14, 2021 at 10:54 pm #1204042578
Forbes just published a great wee article about how audiences are only showing up for known IP now, we’ve now reached the stage where old star+concept vehicles are trying to franchises now. https://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2021/02/13/hollywood-is-desperate-to-turn-old-blockbusters-into-new-franchises/
Fleabag and Atlanta were the shows that made PWB and Donald into stars in the first place and those shows were original. And the biggest show of the year The Queen’s Gambit isn’t based on any blockbuster and audiences showed up for that. So I’m not sure I follow the logic of the article.January 31, 2021 at 6:21 pm #1204011403
McConaughey still had Interstellar post Oscar and that was a box office hit.

I know Portrait isn’t eligible, I just meant it could have done really well this year with nominations if it was.September 7, 2020 at 12:22 am #1203690485
Is “Bacurau” eligible to be submitted this year by Brazil? I have heard a lot of buzz about that film.
Also if “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” was submitted this year it would have a chance at not only International film but some above the line nominations.Not now
