If you think about it narratively, the film is never told from the point of view of Colman’s character. Yes, the narrative revolves around her character but that doesn’t make her the lead.
It starts from the perspective of Weisz’s character, then we shift to Stone’s character’s point of view as she becomes “the favourite.” However, eventually, we see Stone’s character’s demise and the film ends back in the point of view of Weisz’s character.
So even though we spend most of the movie seeing Stone’s character’s perspective, the movie starts and ends with Weisz’s character, making her the central protagonist, even though she is absent from part of the movie. For this reason, Weisz and Stone are leads and Colman is borderline, but could justify a supporting placement.
I would say with confidence that if Kate Winslet had played Weisz’ character as originally planned, her and maybe Stone would have been placed in lead, and Colman would have been supporting.September 14, 2019 at 9:49 am #1203074536
It doesn’t really look like “the directing” type of movie as much as it is “the screenplay” type of movie.
Kenneth Lonergan got in for Manchester by the Sea. If Marriage Story is as big as predicted, Noah Baumbach will have no problem getting in.September 13, 2019 at 6:50 pm #1203073779
I’m not exaggerating when I say that Don’t Call Me Angel is one of the worst song I’ve ever heard, and I’m a fan of Ariana and Miley.September 12, 2019 at 4:59 am #1203070688
I don’t think Erivo is happening. She would most likely be the only nominee from her film. That can happen with biopics with mixed reviews (My Week with Marilyn, The Iron Lady) but usually the performance has to be raved about it a big name has to be attached. This year Judy fits the bill, and Erivo, with good but not great notices for her performances, and little name recognition, is not getting in.September 9, 2019 at 3:22 pm #1203066359
I’m also predicting a Margot Robbie win but we’ll have to wait for the reception to Bombshell.
Right now I have:
1. Margot Robbie, Bombshell
2. Laura Dern, Marriage Story
3. Florence Pugh, Little Women
I’m really unsure about the last two spots. In my predictions I have:
4. Meryl Streep, The Laundromat (but only because I got her at 100/1)
5. Anna Paquin, The Irishman (because she’s supposed to have a baity role and she has an interesting narrative)September 9, 2019 at 3:41 am #1203064858
I really don’t know if I’ve seen a better trailer in my life, so this is very surprising to me. Props to whoever cut together the trailer I guess.September 7, 2019 at 3:05 pm #1203062441
inb4 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood gets mixed reviews.September 7, 2019 at 12:31 pm #1203062153
It’s set in an African-American neighborhood like Moonlight, it features the ocean as a motif, it has newcomer leads and veteran supporting actors, it’s an artsy A24 auteur movie, and in general reviews have favorably compared the visual style of Waves to Moonlight.September 2, 2019 at 3:04 pm #1203053973
I don’t think Gaga was ever the favorite to win. She was considered as a possibility by most, but the general consensus was that she would only win the golden globe.
Not true, if you were on this site last year during the fall festivals and the weeks that followed, you would have seen how Lady Gaga was the presumed favorite to win.September 2, 2019 at 2:34 pm #1203053937
Excuse me,Wasn’t Leo’s performance in Revenant best acting in lead role in the year 2015.You can’t win 34 acting awards in 1 season solely on overdue narrative.
What was Leo’s performance in the Revenant? He grunted and suffered for 2 and a half hours. His award was 75% based on overdue narrative and 25% based on his “commitment” to the role and weak competition.
