lol. Based on her work in BLL then yes. She was fantastic in it. It’s not her fault that her role was underwritten this season. And even though her role was smaller this season, her performance in episode 2 was fantastic. She should have been nominated for an Oscar for The Descendants.
In season 1 she was terrific. Season 2 she had a few really great moments–the aforementioned episode–but overall she was really uninspired and lost sight of the complex, mysterious, seemingly-apathetic-publicly but electric-privately Jane that she crafted for season 1 episode 1.November 17, 2019 at 7:35 am #1203183095
Could Shailene Woodley have a chance at an Oscar nomination for “Girl Named Sue”? It will directed by Fernando Coimbra and will be produced by Jean-Marc Vallée, Nathan Ross and Laura Bickford. Production will start in late February. https://deadline.com/2019/11/shailene-woodley-girl-named-sue-fernando-coimbra-director-1202786346/
Based on her work in BLL, no.November 17, 2019 at 7:31 am #1203183089

I’m doing it, babe. I’m going to drag that performance. In that scene, she is very conscious of the camera. She’s making it quite obvious that she is acting. It doesn’t feel like a natural performance at all. I just think her performance in I, Tonya is not that good and overrated. It’s only my opinion..
No clue what you watched.November 13, 2019 at 4:04 pm #1203178255
If Scarjo is nominated in both categories, couldn’t that hurt her chances? If she gets some surprise Jojo votes, those same voters likely won’t also vote for her for MS.November 10, 2019 at 10:41 am #1203173539
No chance Huppert gets in for Frankie, huh?November 10, 2019 at 10:33 am #1203173524
Aileen Wuornos wasn’t the most relevant person to play and win an Oscar for, but the performance was somehow as natural as honest. She clearly wanted to be taken seriously as an actress considering the fact that she was a bombshell. Now with Megyn, all I am seeing is awards recognition. She clearly played that role with that intention of getting nominated for awards and probably win. I adore Charlize Theron, but it’s so obvious that she’s thirsty for awards. Moreover a character like Aileen Wuornos is always more interesting to play than a Megyn Kelly.
She wasn’t even going to play the role at first, or so she claims. It’s obvious to me that she undertook this project as a producer to tell an important story about sexual abuse at Fox News a year before the 2020 election. I don’t think she was thinking awards and she herself has said the Oscar buzz surprised her.November 9, 2019 at 6:40 pm #1203172917
I just watched Diane. Mary Kay Place is that good.November 9, 2019 at 1:44 pm #1203172707
Glenn Close in The Wife. Shouldn’t have even been nominated. I’d even rate Gaga’s perfectly “meh” performance before Close’s mediocre attempt. The way she desperately tried to ride that overdue narrative like her life depended on it… I HAVE TO LAUGH. She even wore gold! *Insert Nicki Minaj evil laugh gif*November 9, 2019 at 7:35 am #1203172342
Even though he’s fully sweeping, I found Phoenix’s material (not his performance) lackluster. All he did was the fake laugh instead of crying thing. Overall he was great throughout, he captured Fleck’s essence and staff, but at the same time I felt like the character was written to be multiple people throughout different phases of the film, like it wasn’t the same person from the beginning till the end.
This is a sign of showing a character ark! A lot of people have been complaining about him being one-note so this is in interesting take… I think with Arthur, the shifts are extra pronounced because he’s still sort of shopping for his personality. He’s so, so socially unaware that he takes on these different roles throughout the film–he tries being the self-deprecating nice guy, he tries being the sardonic guy who is too smart for the world..ultimately the final personality he adopts is that of the Joker, in which he finds himself.November 9, 2019 at 7:23 am #1203172322
Also, Ledger vs Phoenix comes off as apples and oranges. They have completely different functions in the films in which they appear, I do agree with what I think John said before that Joaquin is playing Arthur Fleck and Ledger the Joker. I do prefer Ledger, but it’s not a fair comparison as they’re playing nearly polar opposite iterations of a popular character with a somewhat infinite mythos. I mean, Ledger is a supporting character and a foil to Batman, can he be expected to bring out dimensions of his character that are impossible to express through the limitations of the script?
Very well said. Thank you!!!
