Any early word on The Goldfinch? Test screenings?June 14, 2019 at 10:13 pm #1202938523
Hopefully Chernobyl wins and the three leads land nominations in their categories.June 14, 2019 at 10:10 pm #1202938521
I really feel that Jodie Comer is criminally underrated. Sandra Oh is great, but Comer is really the whole show, especially in the second season. I think she should’ve won for the first season. I can’t imagine anyone could watch Killing Eve and not be completely blown away by her performance. I hope she finally wins this year.June 11, 2019 at 8:23 pm #1202933833
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Nathan Lane for giving the best performance of his entire incredible career in Angels in America.</p>June 11, 2019 at 8:21 pm #1202933816
Elaine May for me. She wasn’t acting. She was just living. However, Viola Davis ties with her in my mind for a now legendary performance. Honestly, what a lineup of such supremely talented women. We really have been spoiled.June 11, 2019 at 6:37 pm #1202933727
Egerton is phenomenal, but I thought the film itself was atrocious. Bryce deserves a razzie for that awful performance as the mother. I mean, she was overacting with that awful accent and she looked younger than Egerton.June 11, 2019 at 6:32 pm #1202933716
I must admit, I thought this was pretty awful. It was clearly trying to ride on the coattails of Lady Bird and Eighth Grade. Except what made Lady Bird and Eighth Grade so charming was how hyperrealistic it felt. Booksmart could not possibly be less realistic, the characters are cliched and paper thin, and the acting is pretty awful from the two leads. This film has a few laughs, but it tries way too hard most of the time and really just feels amateurish. I think it’s a solid 6/10 and doesn’t deserve award recognition. We’ve seen far superior attempts at similar stories in the last two years. I don’t see award voters taking to this one.February 25, 2019 at 7:48 am #1202793580
She’s going to fade back into British television.
Doubt it. She’s starring alongside some huge names in The Crown on Netflix, which is watched largely by Americans. I think this will make her a big name in America. If you haven’t seen it yet, she’s been turning out Oscar worthy performances in TV shows for years. I don’t see her fading away at all.February 25, 2019 at 7:43 am #1202793560
As I said before, it’s a “meh” film, it’s aging like a pumpkin, and I’m disappointed, but not surprised. I also couldn’t help, but piss myself laughing when a bunch of old white guys in suits piled up on stage to talk about racism. Also, Farrelly’s weird speech about Viggo felt odd, passive aggressive somehow, and super problematic. Also he loves to show people his penis.February 25, 2019 at 7:35 am #1202793543
So happy for Olivia. I think she just made herself a star with that shocking win and a brilliant speech. She didn’t come off as a movie star, but as a great actress and a human being. It’s refreshing.February 21, 2019 at 8:50 am #1202783817
Yet The Wife has higher reviews and notes than Vice, Bohemian Rhapsody and many others nominated movies.
Yes, but while The Wife is mediocre, Bohemian Rhapsody and Vice are just straight up bad. I didn’t claim they were better than The Wife, I simply said that The Wife and Glenn’s performance are both mediocre.February 21, 2019 at 8:17 am #1202783770
I’m still rooting hard for Olivia Colman. I would be happy to see Glenn Close finally win an Oscar, but I just didn’t particularly care for her or her movie. Very mediocre all around.February 21, 2019 at 8:14 am #1202783762
Keri Russell is making her Broadway debut next month alongside Adam Driver in the play Burn. She’s really proved herself to be a great actress in The Americans. I hope she finds some major film roles soon.
I think for my list I’m going to stick to fairly contemporary actresses:
