It should but I’m sure Damon pitched this movie with the intention entirely on the duel it’s self. I think the studio would push her for supporting to make it easier to cumulate those noms. Looking at this thread however I fear the comp is harder than lead for a debut performance to get in. She’s goes for lead? She’s not getting in. One movie I’m strangely fixated on is the eyes of tammy faye. It feels like it would do well at the globes and no where else if it ends up with a green metascore. On the men side I’m putting all my stock into the tragedy of macbeth, looking forward to cumberbatch however and Isaacs mass
You do know why they duel, right? The plot hinges on Marguerite no matter which way you slice it. And sure some of the other stuff about jealousy and politics will come into it, but they brought in Nicole Holofcener for a reason and I doubt it’s to write a secondary character. Comer herself recently described the character as someone who ‘risked her life and reclaimed her life’. She’s going to be significant.
They also have a potential additional Supporting Actress push in Harriet Walter.February 25, 2021 at 11:59 am #1204061352
I love jodie and she is a great actress, but there is something that makes me skeptical about her winning. I feel it’s too early for her to win an Oscar and I don’t think she’s as loved as she was before (thanks to the controversy of her trump supporter boyfriend) and the film is controversial, but I can see her being nominated as a supporting actress Idk…It all depends, however, on the reception of the film
Pretty sure the whole ‘Trump supporter boyfriend’ thing was a classic ‘Twitter blows up over nothing’ moment with little actual substance.
I don’t think she’s winning. But I do think she’ll go Lead.
Like you said the film’s subject matter is controversial – I imagine the studio will want to avoid any accusation that her character is just there in service of the story of a male lead. She’s the lead female character. The entire plot hinges on her. Based on what I know of the plot she’s likely to be in most of it.February 25, 2021 at 11:11 am #1204061251
Leaked: Adam Driver’s audition for House of Gucci https://twitter.com/m_bee4/status/1321702140730134528?s=21
Needs to do more comedies.
Also I think someone mentioned this earlier in the thread but geez his hands are gigantic.February 25, 2021 at 9:21 am #1204060945
Stefani Germanotta is not winning acting Oscar anytime soon. Why? Two words: Ridley Scott. He isn’t what he used to be anymore. He hasn’t had critically acclaimed movie in 20 years.
As others have said, The Martian (seven Oscar nominations) exists.February 25, 2021 at 8:55 am #1204060863
Did they do these photo shoots for W magazine this year in the same location or was it done remotely (i.e. were they all in the US?)
They look overwhelmingly like they were shot in LA, but Kirby and SBC definitely look UK.
On a related note I really don’t understand the photo they used of Vanessa Kirby.February 25, 2021 at 7:36 am #1204060673
I’m exicited for the official stills. The visuals for this movie should be stunning (I mean the locations alone are incomparable). Can’t see them not doing loads of press and photoshoots given the subject matter. Millions of people are currently on twitter discussing the fact that Gaga has brown hair (lol). It would be insane to not try to pre-emptively control some of the photos released for the film, especially with such a stacked cast.
Yeah the locations are incredible.
And I think we can fully expect big fashion spreads etc etc, definitely with Gaga and potentially with some of her costars as well.February 25, 2021 at 2:34 am #1204060331
Someone mentioned this already but I have a feeling they will do something like Neon did with Spencer. It’s a starry cast and a high profile film so I feel like they’d do some sort of promotion to build hype. After all most of their Oscar competitors (even those from less high profile films) are already doing this to generate audience interest before it’s safe to go back to theatres and watch these films in the Autumn/Winter.
Exactly. And they know photos from the filming are going to be in the press – official early stills would mean they can avoid the first image being something like Gaga leaving her trailer with slippers on or whatever.
Plus releasing a still of this will cause MASSIVE hype in the Gaga fandom. Even the news of the name change and the release of this photo yesterday was all over Twitter.February 25, 2021 at 2:24 am #1204060306
Gaga always looks like she’s already in costume but I lowkey thought this was a still from the film lol.
I wonder if they are doing early production stills? It seems like the kind of project we might get a ‘meet the Guccis’ style shoot for. If nothing else then to control the first image that gets seen, as if it’s all location shooting there may be paparazzi pics.
Plus Gaga has 46m Instagram followers so an early shoot/still would be a good way to get it out there.February 25, 2021 at 2:12 am #1204060278
cast already in Rome https://twitter.com/gagadaily/status/1364713090571501569?s=20
Adam Driver finished a project literally four days ago. That man does not rest.
Gaga looks great in this photo – almost like she’s already in costume!February 23, 2021 at 11:48 am #1204057118
Lady Gaga should ask Gillian Anderson if she can borrow her box from The X Files.
The Gillyboard! Apparently that’s now common parlance in Canadian TV production.
Is Maggie Gyllenhaal also the writer of The Lost Daughter?February 23, 2021 at 11:39 am #1204057104
I hope Driver wins but in a way I want Bradley Cooper to win because his thirst for an Oscar is getting irritating and coming across as patronising at this point.
Haha same – part of me wants him to never win because I don’t particularly rate him as an actor but the other part wants him to so he dials back his intense thirst because I just can’t take the cringe. I also think he deserved a maximum of one of his previous acting noms. I have him missing for Nightmare Alley too.
Driver is a significantly better actor IMO, which also makes it interesting to me that Lady Gaga is going from having Cooper as a scene partner to having Driver. Very intrigued to see how they do together (and not just because she’ll probably have to stand on a box for most of it).
