Man, I just thought Toni Colette was outstanding in this movie, and thoroughly deserved a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her work. She was the glue that held that family (and film) together.August 23, 2014 at 11:02 am #313425
I don’t think Kudrow will be nommed for a Globe tbh… She wasn’t nominated the last time, and her show nor her are hot enough to warrant one next year. The Globe will be between Schilling and JLD, with the comedy series race also between Orange and Veep, and for the Emmys, it’s between JLD, Kudrow and Poehler, who I have a feeling could finally get her victory for the final year of Parks. JLD will presumably have 3 for Veep by next year, so they may feel it’s time to move on.August 23, 2014 at 7:48 am #313423
I hope this doesn’t bomb.January 29, 2014 at 1:44 pm #137096
Diane Keaton is indeed borderline supporting in Annie Hall, as Jennifer Lawrence was in Silver Linings Playbook…
But Christoph Waltz being in supporting was quite accurate. I think it would be more category fraud calling him lead. Jamie Foxx is the only lead in that film. Waltz is clearly his sidekick, and dies 20 minutes before the end of the film, thus giving him supporting status. Foxx is lead, everyone else supporting.January 28, 2014 at 6:34 pm #137085
Amadeus – Tom Hulce clearly should’ve gone supporting; Abraham was the sole lead in that film – he carried it on his back
August: Osage County – Yes, both Streep and Roberts should’ve gone lead, but Roberts definitely would not have made the cut
Notes on a Scandal – Both Blanchett and Dench should’ve gone lead; I think both roles were strong enough to warrant 2 leading nominations, both would surely have made it in.
I can clearly see why it’s done though strategically; I mean if two leads from the same film get in, you know only one has a shot at winning realistically. It must suck for two leads (or indeed two supporting) actors to get in from the same film

I’m surprised Heaton won in 2000 with Bad Moon Rising. She’s so damned unlikable in that episode, I don’t know how anyone voted for her. I want to kill Debra in that episode. I thought Heaton’s win was more deserving for The Cannister in 2001. Now that’s a great performance.October 15, 2013 at 5:38 am #304466
I always thought Kaczmarek was out of place in the lead actress category, even though she was the only lead actress (and hell, the only actress) on the show. Same goes for Patricia Heaton and Patricia Richardson. Heaton did well in lead actress with 2 wins, but I still think Debra was a supporting character to Ray on ELR. Richardson was definitely, like Lois, a supporting character on Home Improvement and both of these actresses would have done better in that category I think, in spite of the fact that they were the only female regulars on their shows.
