Why i chose Winslet for the win because of her acting ability. it is unique kind of performance not that much dialog instead of that her eyes are talking, her gesture are talking her face are talking …its phenomenon lonely to happy to sadly what a complete acting style
1. Kate Winslet : BAFTA & OSCAR
2. Frances McDorman : huge gap acting between Frances and the rest actor in this film that making her performance lil bit over acting alias too much
3. Viola Davis : this is not her film… this is chadwick boseman film…. She couldnt handle heavy dialog u can see from her eyes shes think too much what acting she should do
4. Vanessa Kirby : same kind of acting from the start to the end… the main issue is the story of this film is ridiculous , having birth at home at least she knew the consequences instead of that the helper got in to jail and accused couse of it, suddenly she came to the court and acting like an angle to save the nurse
5. Carey Mulligan : Big problem big issue for me is her drunk acting is terrible… her eyes dont tell any intoxicated at all… be carefull guys when you do drunken acting….
Andara Day is too much a new kid dont know from nowhere suddenly got another shot to win…. Lady gaga doing some movie and TV series a lot before she got film award attention… so sad for bunch of actress who really dedicated her performance for acting didnt get any vote couse lack of fans
Zendaya, Malcolm & Marie kind of laughable movie… shes only 24 and acting like she has been married for decades with bunch of issue and many bad kids….
Thanks for the laughs. Again. You first posted your ‘analysis’ in the Best Actress thread, got understandably ignored, so then you really had to copy and paste it into a new thread and embarrass yourself all over again, huh? I hate to bump this up in the forum, but literally couldn’t fall asleep without commenting. “She couldnt handle heavy dialog”? “her drunk acting is terrible”? Jet Li?? SIGH. and all that to stan and predict….. Kate Winslet? brave. confusing. oh so dumb. Goodnight.December 12, 2020 at 9:19 am #1203914416
lol this is why i hardly ever post here. people always rudely attacking different opinions. i never said Meryl was bad in The Prom. in fact i did say she was the best thing in an otherwise abysmal musical (imo!.) i never said it has no chances at nominations at GG or SAG. i was talking exclusively about Meryl getting nominated for an ACTING OSCAR for this, which i think are slim at best. the movie’s currently barely even holding on to a fresh RT rating. It is not based on any classic or beloved Broadway property. Viewers are eating this up only because of Murphy, the cast and Netflix. It is not an acting Oscar contender, maybe a throwaway technical nod.
Btw, shoutout to my two favorite posters, wolfali and Bassett!
Let’s keep the Mulligan momentum going, y’all.December 12, 2020 at 7:20 am #1203914154
No offense but if while watching The Prom, liking the movie or not, you don’t realize both GG and SAG are gonna eat this up, you are not doing that good of a job at predicting.
Like they ate up Into The Woods? Please. And Streep was name checked for that across the board, ending up dead last in the Supporting races that year.
I don’t claim to be an expert in predicting. i just think The Prom is a shit movie that has no place in an acting OSCAR conversation.December 12, 2020 at 5:22 am #1203913988
Just hate watched The Prom. It is peak Streep award season blindness, if some are thinking she’ll get a Best Actress nod for this. Sure the fifth slot is wide open, and she is certainly the best part of this over the top cringe-fest. It is still nonetheless just a supremely mediocre musical Ryan Murphy just happened to shit glitter all over. This is not Chicago. This is not an Oscar contender. If Streep is to crash the category yet again, it will certainly be for LTAT, though i hope she doesn’t get nominated at all, because like seriously, enough. (And before anybody comes for me, i LOVE Streep.)
Mulligan for the win. Period.May 13, 2020 at 5:03 am #1203479178
When Kimmy is on hold calling Donna Maria, make sure to press 3 and Keep Listening. Two words: Taco Snake. And Kemper’s pained facial expressions all throughout a demented rendition of 12 Days of Christmas are everything. Emmy justice for Kemper!
Other than that, yea, this should have been just a regular movie. I agree with forwardswill. The runaround with all the options was a bit irritating and really took me out of the quick comedy pace of the plot. And so by the time the ending came, i literally thought the story was not even at half point.. I was also expecting some Lost-style twist after Kimmy found the second bunker, but since it was just one standalone episode, i guess they needed a clean finite ending.
Titus’ cover of “Free Bird” was bonkers, surreal and absolutely blissful. They should put it on iTunes.April 23, 2020 at 6:12 am #1203443171
The real debate between Schlafly and Friedan:
Oh man. This was.. painful to watch. The real Schlafly really wasn’t the witch, she was the devil herself, wasn’t she? So deluded, so narrow-minded, so self-righteous, exploitative and just wrong.
I wish the Betty episode version of this debate did not have to end with Schlafly “winning” the debate by using Friedan’s divorce to get her to lash out, but i understand it was done for dramatic TV effect. I really don’t care for the show humanizing Schlafly anymore, as much as i revel in Blanchett inhabiting this character. I love how the real debate actually showed Friedan speaking passionately about housewives and the ERA defending their rights, which the show has not stressed enough, focusing too much on pitting midwestern housewives against east coast liberal feminists as a vicious rivalry. I love how the real Betty also acknowledged Schlafly bringing up her divorce but used it to talk about her personal economic struggles which resulted from it, rather than getting emotional. End of rant. This clip was just.. a lot as a gay man to handle.
Fantastic episode though, the conclusion of the debate scene aside. Ullman was fantastic, and surprisingly restrained. I was worried she was going to be a caricature, but she played Friedan with precise focus and necessary dose of humor. The phone call between Friedan and Steinem in the end was perfect, and one of my favorite scenes from the show so far.April 18, 2020 at 6:21 am #1203433490
I just rewatched The Hours yesterday. It’s not a great movie, but the amount of talent on screen makes it intensely rewatchable. The three stories are also very well paced and weaved together, with occasional moments of true emotional poignancy (Meryl’s scenes with Ed, especially the last one, Julianne’s bathroom scene, Nicole’s train station scene, Toni’s only scene.)
SO many great actors in small throwaway roles.. Atkins, Martingale, Danes, Collette, Janney. And yes, Miranda Richardson, who was great as always but the role just did not have much going for it. Unlike Kity, whose entire story we experienced in just one short scene, and Collette acts it beautifully, going from upbeat and spunky to listless and devastated.
Can anyone also please enlighten to me as to why Virginia full on made out with her sister Vanessa played by Richardson. Every time i rewatch the movie, i have to check Wikipedia to confirm they were indeed blood sisters, and it makes me squirm. It appears that maybe they wanted to allude to the fact that Woolf was bisexual, but as far as i read, her and Nessa were not in an incestuous relationship. I suppose the make out was to be a catalyst for the “Did i not seem better?” confrontation, but still, it is just such a WTF moment. Anybody has another read on that moment? I really bothers me every time.April 16, 2020 at 11:09 am #1203430418
She was a co-lead, and IMO there was nothing borderline supporting about her role.
The Danish Girl is just as much about Lili’s transition, as it is about Gerde’s experience, and their marriage overall. Sure, the movie’s title references Lili and her transition propels the plot, but Gerde was just as much of a fully realized character with a full emotional journey arc, and she had bountiful screen time on top of that.
Her supporting campaign was a completely strategic and consciously fraudulent move to boost her winning chances, because Lead Actress was Larson’s to lose that year.March 9, 2020 at 2:52 pm #1203376115
She was a co-lead, absolutely no question about it. There is not the slightest argument you can make for Mara’s placement in Supporting (which occasionally you can, in rare borderline cases.) One could even argue that Therese is the true lead of Carol. The category fraud here was blatant and infuriating. Just like Vikander’s.March 5, 2020 at 6:27 am #1203371826
Not the right thread for this but it has yet to be said… Renee Zellweger is a two-time Oscar winner because she can do something marvelously: she brings herself to every role and yet she becomes entirely different, reflecting her heart, self-deprecating sense of self, and versatility.
No Chicago GIFs? Criminal :p
I actually really love Renee, but you have to agree she is a bit of an unlikely two timer, especially considering all the actresses mentioned in this thread even who only have one.March 5, 2020 at 6:01 am #1203371793
OK. Here’s what i absolutely love about Bates. You can just look at a picture of her in character, and feel their essence and the backstory. What move is this still from?
I hope she does win a second in her career. She is one of the greats and I’m so happy she is working regularly again and staying in the spotlight.March 5, 2020 at 5:48 am #1203371780
Roberts and Winslet don’t feel like a two time winners…
Seriously? We’re living in a world where Renee Zellweger has two Oscars. Roberts and Winslet can definitely get there. They just need to get back to work. Perhaps steal Kidman’s agent?
The only thing that is absolutely certain in this world is that Close will evidently never win a first.January 16, 2020 at 3:23 am #1203287349
The movie is not a horror. Like, not at all. Damn superb dramatic thriller though. Whatever the circumstances, it is a shame it went nowhere awards wise, because it definitely deserved Picture, Actress, Supp Actress, Cinematography (the eclipse scene, my god), Screenplay.
Judy Parfitt still gives me chills upon every rewatch. Her “husbands die” monologue.. while needlepointing! that single silent tear at the very end.. who won Supp Actress that year again? i rest my case.
and Bates.. her best role ever, on par with Misery and Primary Colors.
Glad to see the movie resurface in conversations in recent years though as an underappreciated classic.January 13, 2020 at 7:32 am #1203280858
Essie Davis, Toni Collette, now Lupito Nyong’o.. so sick of the horror performance bias, and biopic bait mediocrity always getting in. Guess we’ll always have Black Swan? ..
And Ronan gets in for another coming-of-age hamfest, in a remake..
Johansson for the win.January 13, 2020 at 6:43 am #1203280485
The Farewell shut out completely HURTS. No lead/supp Actress, no Screenplay, no goddamn Picture. SHAMEFUL.
Not surprised with Ronan and Erivo (barf) getting in, ahead of Awkwafina and Nyong’o, but still, dang Academy, you really could have earned some major brownie points here.
ECSTATIC for Bates. Supp Actress (with the egregious Shuzhen snub) actually looks pretty darn good, even tho Dern is sadly sweeping.
Parasite for the win in everything. Screw Hollywood.
