Dunst should have won Supporting Actress for Interview with the Vampire and wasn’t even nominated… would have been nominated for Melancholia if Von Trier hadn’t opened his big mouth, but then that just shows how political the voting bodies are, punishing an actor by association. I’m already bored by the prospect of JLaw winning another Oscar next year when there are many overdue actors still waiting recognition.
I really don’t see her winning one in the next couple of years. Don’t look up will maybe result in a nom, the soldier project seems to be troubled by the script (2 writers were added and there will have to be re-shoots).February 8, 2021 at 2:18 pm #1204031776
She could have, maybe, yeah. But she didn’t so we’ll never know lol. That’s exactly it. She needs to actually DO those roles that showcase her range, and the same goes for Robbie! Her roles in Bombshell and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood are just okay-fine-kinda-lazy, what on earth am I supposed to use as precedent to think she’ll WIN other than the fact that everyone keeps saying it, so the self-fulfilling prophecy must come true
Not disagreeing here! I think the next few years will be interesting!
And yes to the looooong overuse nom (and win) for Legend DunstFebruary 8, 2021 at 11:53 am #1204031322
As for JLaw, she is not overdue by any stretch of the imagination. She’s talented but outside of Winter’s Bone, the hype just made her stagnate. She won so early she didn’t keep challenging herself the way that, say, Emma Stone did. Stone also won too early but c’mon, let’s not pretend that she’s not trying her darnedest to really grow as an actor in things like Battle of the Sexes, and The Favourite. Now, I’d probably say her range is better than Lawrence or Robbie’s, because she actually has kept consistently impressing me, even if I still don’t understand why she’s getting another Yorgos Lanthimos lead role. C’mon man, give that to Dunst for not making On Becoming a God in Central Florida with her. I dunno. Since Robbie keeps getting plum roles, I’m sure to see the hype at some point I suppose.
Neither Stone nor Robbie had two franchises that take up a lot of time, though. I’d argue that Lawrence’s habit of working with the same directors over and over again isn’t helpful either. It’s actually crazy to think about how few directors she has actually worked with. Poor choices are to be blamed as well. That’s why I’m so curious about the Lila Neugebauer since I hope for a return to her indie roots (because I’d like to pretend that those awful x-men movies, Passengers and Red Sparrow don’t exist…).
Imo, Lawrence could have played Billy Jean or Tonya Harding as well while I can’t see Stone or Robbie selling something like Winter’s Bone. I really like all three and think they each have unique strengths. Their respective ranges can probably be discussed in about 10 years when they each have longer filmographies.February 6, 2021 at 5:15 am #1204026540
With amsterdam and babylon it looks like a bright and beautiful future award wise to margot robbie. Imagine the gag if girlfriend don’t win for neither.
I’m really curious to see how Amsterdam turns out…Considering that DOR had originally written the part for JLaw and the overall talent that is involved (I wonder if Anya will maybe end up overshadowing Robbie…)February 6, 2021 at 5:03 am #1204026524
Sam needs to have his ego taken all the way down. This was dreadful. Critics didn’t drag him nearly as hard as they should for his obsessive behavior against the “white woman from the LA Times” that he couldn’t stop talking about and using writer’s black face through JDW to drag her to seem woke (it deserves a 20s MC alone for this). John was atrocious but Zendaya was pretty good. Of course Jared Leto acclaimed this as one of the greatest black and white films ever: terrible taste for a terrible actor.
Agree with everything you said!!
P.s. Did Leto really say that?! LMAOJanuary 30, 2021 at 12:51 pm #1204010033
Wow… This must have awards potential if Apple buys the movie for that amount of money…January 30, 2021 at 9:05 am #1204009773
Fixed it for you!!. I wonder if the likes of Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya, Florence Pugh, Elle Fanning and Eliza Scanlen are belong to different generation than Stone, Larson, Robbie, Ronan etc???
Yep, I forgot Debecki who does belong to that group.
Zendaya, Steinfeld, Florence etc. are part of the next generation (generations with actresses mean your five-ten years apart, not 25)January 29, 2021 at 10:37 am #1204008637
In terms of fame and box office success, Emma Watson is the number one by far. 8 HP movies and 1 Disney movie which did 1 Billion Dollars. The problem is that Emma Watson is a very mediocre
True! How could I forget…I guess my opinion of her as an actress just completely influenced her overall position in my mindJanuary 29, 2021 at 9:19 am #1204008520
So here are my first thoughts on what at this point in time I see with win potential in each of the races at this point. I’ll be doing this weekly. First up Actress Margot Robbie – If her performance is acclaimed or Amsterdam ends up being a big contender then she’s winning quite easily imo. There is a sense that Hollywood seems to be dying to award Margot Robbie. She’s arguably the biggest star of her generation, she’s been building a big prestige repertoire so she isn’t really considered anymore as a “welcome to the club” actress and frankly she’s beloved. She reminds me of Nicole Kidman in the early 2000s. This woman has received 5 SAG nominations over the space of 3 years and 6 BAFTA nominations (and potentially 7 this year for her producing work) over the space of 6 years. She probably was second for Bombshell. To me she’s the one to beat for now. Frances McDormand – She has zero chance if she wins for Nomadland this year (but who knows because McDormand is quite beloved) but if she loses for Nomadland this year I can see her building a narrative for a third acting Oscar. That Nomadland performance strikes me as one that will have a lot of passion and I can see that passion turn into goodwill that can benefit her for her showy performance in The Tragedy of Macbeth. Obviously this theory is skewed if she goes supporting. Jennifer Hudson – I am not predicting her to get nominated as of now but I am getting Bo Rhap vibes (sans the controversies). Halle Berry – If Viola Davis loses Best Actress this year the narrative for another black actress winner will be strong. But what about having the first black woman win Best Actress twice. Again I am not predicting her for a nod as of yet but Netflix seem like they may push her hard (they’ve kept it for a year for a reason) and this could be her big Oscar comeback. It seems like it might be a strong auteur piece. Viola Davis – I do wonder if the film will actually come out for this season but the premise of this film sounds baity af. Viola Davis WILL win a lead actress Oscar eventually even though it may seem unlikely that will happen for Ma Rainey. I can see a potential loss springboard her momentum for the next Oscar season.
Pretty much sums up my thoughts (except for calling Margot the biggest star of her generation, I don’t think this generation has one particular star imo Stone, Robbie, Ronan and Lawrence all have things going for and against them). Brie Larson, Emma Watson and Kirsten Stewart are the second tier of that generation.January 26, 2021 at 10:08 am #1204002894
ok, so Streep is doing a president who tries to discredit the media and the astronauts in Don’t Look Up. looks like a satire of Trump. she is coming for that supporting actress nom
Not only Streep! I think DiCaprio and Lawrence (if they have dramatic scenes as well as comedic ones) are very likely as is BP. The Academy is overwhelmingly Democrat, if it’s not terrible they’re gonna eat this up because of the subject matter alone. Critics aswell.January 24, 2021 at 6:56 am #1203998651
9/10 the actresses “forced” upon the GP actually have the charisma and talent to back it up. There is so many instances of Hollywood trying to make some good looking white guy with average talent into the next Tom Cruise, then when they fail they get “redemptive indie star” arc. Remember this 2014 esquire triple cover
OMG yes…I do remember…dark times
Which actresses were you talking about btw? I don’t think I can think of nine let alone ten….
