Looks like it was her time. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, the competition in Best Actress was weak and she had already spent two decades (undeservedly) getting awards like Cannes, Cesar and David di Donatello.
Oh cmon she at least deserved the cesar for possession. She really did give an amazing performance in the movieOctober 23, 2020 at 2:50 am #1203797829
I LOVE Meryl Streep but I pray the Academy is over nominating her for everything. Especially for light weight films that are borderline mediocre. The Florence Foster Jenkins nod is probably her worst ever. Next to Into the Woods.
the funny thing is even Meryl knows this and rolls her eyes whenever her Oscar clip is shown. Even she herselfs know her nominations are ridiculousOctober 18, 2020 at 9:29 pm #1203787661
I really cannot wait for the oscars tbh. This is already a tedious season and we are barely half wayOctober 16, 2020 at 2:41 am #1203781813

So the Hillbilly trailer has more views on Netflix’s Instagram page than Mank’s trailer and more like a than the two posts about Vanessa and Viola combined? It’s really going to be Netflix’s Oscars audience hit isn’t it?
hillbilly looks more accessible for the mainstream audience whereas mank is movie made for cinephilesOctober 14, 2020 at 10:41 am #1203778264
I like how everybody went from Amy Adams should be in supporting to she should win best lead actressOctober 13, 2020 at 10:05 pm #1203776948
I’ve learnt with this year that all cards are off the table and that really is the real reason why I’m considering Kirby. Only two Actress contenders so far are in films with either raves or great reviews and they’re Mulligan and McDormand. Mulligan seems to be the frontrunner to win the Globe but her film could be too inaccessible for voters. McDormand gives her career best performance but she won 2 years ago and het performance is said to be “quiet”. Then you have someone like Winslet who most reviews say gives a great performance (the more positive ones say it’s one of her best) but her film is divisive af. Not to mention her film is a Lesbian Romance being delivered to an Academy that rejected the more acclaimed Carol in Picture. Then you have Pfeiffer who some pundits say is a lock and some say is getting nominated because of how open the field is and her film is also incredibly divisive and the really negative reviews (The Guardian) say she’s only the MVP by default. And her film is about the spirit of her dead husband being resurrected in the form of a cat. Then Day, Davis and Hudson are all playing famous singers a year after Renee Zellweger won for playing Judy Garland and Taron Egerton got rejected for playing Elton John after Rami Malek won for playing Freddie Mercury. Then you have the fact that both Adams and Davis’s roles are supporting in their source materials and are over-shadowed by the more baity roles of their co-stars. Then there’s Sophia Loren who may deliver the best performance of her life but her film has no buzz for anything outside of her performance. Point being anything can really happen this year and it’s time that we all (whether we’re thinking Davis, Kirby, McDormand, Mulligan, Winslet or Pfeiffer etc are winning) understand that this pandemic has thrown everything off proportion. At the Emmys this year shows that under-performed or got shut out at SAG either swept the acting categories or did better than shows that won or swept SAG. We’re expecting the most random Tony nominations ever later this week. I’m expecting the same unexpectedness to happen nominations wise and potentially wins wise at the Oscars this year. This is why I’m predicting Kirby. Yes she has things going against her but she also has the most buzz going for her and her performance seems to have a ridiculous amount of acclaim (as does the writing and acting in the first 20 minutes of her film). It’s also why I’m considering the possibility of films like The Father breaking into Director and potentially even winning Best Picture or something like Everybody Loves Jamie or The Prom sneaking into the Picture lineup or Promising Young Woman and Judas and the Black Messiah doing well despite not being traditional Academy friendly films. Right now I don’t think it’s fair to say this won’t happen or this is delusional when we’re only in October and are in strange circumstances (you yourself haven’t done this but several people on here have done so). Frankly anyone can win Best Actress at this point (yes even Rachel Brosnahan) and One Night in Miami or The Father could win Best Picture (as could the three frontrunners in the predictions centre but I don’t need to say that).
I agree with you all cards are of the table. I’m most excited to see Kirby and Mulligan in this race. Rachel bronshan might be my third in the list. I dunno about viola yet everybody says she should be a lock but she also just won an Oscar too so that might hurt her. Although I admit it would be nice to see a black woman win best actress since Halle berryOctober 13, 2020 at 3:21 pm #1203776441
This is honestly the most exciting actress race in the last 3 yearsOctober 12, 2020 at 4:14 pm #1203773766
I’d have nominated her over the following : 2012 Oscars – Supporting Actress (Drive) over Janet McTeer 2012 Oscars – Actress (Shame) over Meryl Streep 2016 Oscars – Actress (Suffragette) over J-Law 2018 Oscars – Actress (Mudbound) over Meryl Streep 2019 Oscars – Actress (Wildlife) over one of Aparicio or Gaga In my book she’s (as you said) on the same level as Adams just her films don’t get recognised for her performances.
I always assume she split votes for drive and shame which is probably why she wasn’t nominated. I also think she should’ve been nominated for the bafta for shame not driveOctober 9, 2020 at 5:25 am #1203768297
Frances McDormand shouldn’t have won for Fargo. It was an obvious category fraud for a supporting role. If anything Emily Watson should’ve won for her wonderful performance in breaking the waves or Brenda blethyn for secrets and liesOctober 9, 2020 at 2:34 am #1203768171
I feel that viola and Vanessa are the strongest contenders based on the fact they have the most baity roles. Viola has the damaged bio pic roles oscars love to vote for. In contrast Vanessa has the loud emotional performance that will get voters attention too.McDormand role is too subtle and to soon she’ll get nominated but no win
