I don’t understand how any objective fan or voter could call Glenn’s performance “good” at all. She portrays a horribly written character as an over the top caricature. Dern’s win was egregious. But it will certainly be better than Close’s.
I don’t know. While I don’t think this performance from Close is the greatest to potentially win, she had scenes where I can recognize a voter wanting to reward her for those. Dern did not have those scenes, and really won an Emmy instead that year.

The producers are really doing Kandy a disservice with this double shantay. First, they heightened the Tamisha drama, and even fixed the next episode (hula hoops for sex, what kind of s**t), and then had Kandy eliminate Tamisha in a lip sync she barely won.
Then, she has continued to coast on her “personality” that keeps being ripped apart by fans, and has positioned her runways to be graded on a curve. While I think she actually demolished Symone in this past lip sync, they should have eliminated her and let her develop her drag similar to Aja and Shangela. Being eliminated is the best thing that could have happened to her.
I have a feeling she will be sticking around for a while now, and she is going to continue being ripped apart each week. Plus she is horrible at PR, so her career will really struggle and even tank similar to the former Phi Phi O’Hara.
Also, I still think Symone is ahead but with her dancing and singing being pretty horrible as we saw a glimpse in the disco challenge, this past challenge, her limits in the lip sync… I think she is now in a place where she could lose her top spot to Rose, Gotmiik, and Olivia.

Exactly! Aside from Laverne, he gives my least favorite performance in the film. The suggestion that some have made about his role being nomination worthy is laughable. Maybe it isn’t the poor quality of writing for his character as it is his overall lackluster portrayal that didn’t do it for me.
Low key if Jennifer Coolidge had one big scene or maybe even just two more regular scenes I’d be campaigning for her. She was my favorite supporting player.

I’d love to see that happen, but the movie’s too indie for AMPAS. I’d also love to see Yeri Han get in, but unfortunately A24 ran her in the wrong category
BAFTA was so her last chance and unfortunately she was nowhere on the “longlist”

Like exactly what do you want me to say? I said imagine how victims would feel after watching the film and particularly the ending this is different from what you’re implying go read again!
It isn’t. Went back, read it again, you said imagine being a rape victim. This is exactly what I have been implying. Like you don’t know who you’re asking that question to or what they’ve been through. Very traumatizing.

Yeah it’s trolling. Imagine expressing your thoughts on a film, and have someone go “Valid, but now do it again but imagine being raped.” That’s trolling, disgusting, and offensive to millions of people.
Anyway, glad the film is getting visibility. It’s definitely topical which will help her stay in the conversation.

The film is offensive, and I can’t imagine how they would feel after watching this, particularly the ending. I don’t care what you think I said cute refers to the quality of the film which could be replaced by good. there are other elements in filmmaking than the screenplay, the detecting, production design, cinematography, costumes etc… I can dissociate them from the screenplay.
You don’t get to just say “imagine being raped” in regards to speaking on the film. This is more offensive and inappropriate to any victim of assault or trauma. Just because the movie doesn’t end like the Color Purple doesn’t mean it’s offensive. It’s tough to watch. Life is tough. Being a woman, being a victim, and dealing with trauma are tough. Understanding the routes of the Me Too movement is tough stuff to talk about.
Glad you like her wardrobe and hair.

I mean kinda?! I understand what she was trying to say. I do understand and totally respect why someone would be completely turned off by it though.
She just goes there with it, and many people and women will really appreciate and be glad so many points were made in this film. But yeah some men in the academy will surely be turned off, and I can see some people refusing to even think about why she went that route.

Can you? Imagine being a rape victim and watching Promising Young Woman… not going any further cause this isn’t the place for that. Glad you enjoyed it.
As one, I’m not offended and the multiple points of the movie were made. It is satisfying because she managed a way for it not to end so rough and sore, while providing HONEST truth of the real world, it just is hard to see the reality of the world sometimes. Especially, when you like the main character so much and her performance. Also your “imagine being a rape victim” disgusting.
Like don’t defend yourself calling the film “cute” again. We know what type of person you are now.

End of Year predictions Globes: Chopra, Colman, Goldsberry, Yuh-jung, Seyfried CC: Bergen, Burstyn, Close, Colman, Seyfried, Yuh-jung SAG: Burstyn, Chopra, Close, Colman, Seyfried (Fishback 6th) BAFTAs: Close, Colman, Ehle, Hart, Mbatha-Raw, Seyfried Oscar: Burstyn, Close, Colman, Seyfried, Yuh-jung
Why do I keep seeing Goldsberry pop up in predictions, is she eligible for the globes? I know she can’t happen at the Oscars.

The ending is upsetting for a viewer but with all of the points it makes… it’s masterful and satisfying in the very last three minutes.
Just wish Laverne Cox was more fleshed out!!!
Ready to see Kirby, Day, and Zendaya! But I feel Mulligan is going to be my favorite performance of the year like Pike in Gone Girl.

Well, we watched the same film, at least there is that.
Well I think I watched the film, and you watched over the film. Reading some of your other comments just seems you didn’t grasp it, or understand the theme and missed all of the nuance. Not saying you have to LOVE IT, but calling it cute shows you might need to take a little more effort and care when you watch a film.

Anyway regarding Carey Mulligan chances, I think she’s not winning and I’d even say she’s not safe for a nomination. She’s not showy and lacks Oscars scene which could severely hurt. The screenplay um I don’t know what to say, the dialogues are not sophisticated enough and it’s kinda sloppy at times I’d even say ridiculous. The romance was underdeveloped and I wished we got to learn more about her past, this was is a bit disappointing as it’s very on the nose. Anyway not predicting anything at all until this gets more traction and eventually precursors/guild noms. I wouldn’t mind a nomination for Carey cause that’s what her character deserves.
I just watched the film and respect your opinion but I definitely have a few issues with this post. Firstly, there are quite a few Oscar scenes in the film. The first 10 minutes, the scene with McLovin. Any part of the nurse scene. (Which will probably be the clip.) It’s the kind of role Amy Adams needs because if she had something like this she could win but her roles are always too subtle to pack enough punch for the gold. Carey Mulligan has the subtleties but also quite a few punches in the movie, even a few jabs here and there.
Also, disagree with the romance point because it was developed to where it needed to be. Especially with the outcome of that relationship. The script was very well written the only thing that was underdeveloped was Laverne Cox’s character. Unfortunately, she just seemed like tokenism. With a few more scenes and fleshing out she could have been a better character, and her arc would have been WAY more impactful with the ending.
I don’t think she could win it is too early to tell, and she could miss but I don’t think she will or the film will. Her performance is pretty similar to Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl. There’s going to be a lot of passion for it because the complexities and the likability of Mulligan just makes it work so well. You can’t picture another actress playing this role. With the Pike comparison I see her being second or third if she keeps her momentum going. I feel like Davis or someone else will come in and just sort of sweep the awards like Moore did that year.

The Great Gatsby. They always rely far too heavily on the material which is silly for a book like Gatsby. I feel like someone like Greta Gerwig could give it a fitting adaptation though.
Carey Mulligan and DiCaprio were too good for that movie to not do what it was supposed to. It was a hit at the box office specifically for their parts in the trailer. They delivered in every Lana Del Ray montage in the film, but it just wasn’t what it was supposed to be.
