She will be viewed as a legend in the future, but I wouldn’t call her legendary at this point in time. Her noteworthy performances are too far and few between at this point. Meryl Streep and Katharine Hepburn had a mix of critical, commercial, and Oscars appeal. I think Frances needs a few more noteworthy and widely seen films before she is officially a legend. But with her upcoming projects it will probably be undeniable in a decade or two.January 28, 2022 at 9:36 am #1204756545
Well, her filmography includes a lot of Oscar-worthy performances (The Horse Whisperer, Ghost World, Girl With a Pearl Earring, Her Don Jon, Under the Skin, Match Point). She also lost twice at the 2020 Oscars and was shut out in 2003 despite winning the BAFTA (Lost In Translation was one of the frontrunners of the year on top of that). It’s clear that the Academy has some sort of grudge against her. She’s clearly one of the most accomplished actresses of our generation.
I doubt any grudge exists if she was double nominated in a single year.January 28, 2022 at 7:31 am #1204756332
I don’t get why people take issue with campaigning. Gaga is getting her name out there and increasing her chances of a nomination or win. I appreciate her hunger. It’s refreshing that she’s more upfront about her experience and desire to win an Oscar.January 28, 2022 at 7:06 am #1204756297
Mark Rylance is the only actor who I’d be okay with winning that’s not Kodi Smit-McPhee.January 28, 2022 at 5:50 am #1204756237
The woman in between Smith and Kidman is a Goldderby user who was sure Cumberbatch and Stewart would win based on regionals.January 28, 2022 at 3:23 am #1204756094
My aunt’s friend’s hair stylist is friends with Academy members, and their group messages are all about Kristen Stewart. The Academy loves her and she is dominating that conversation. Don’t take her out just yet!!!!!!January 27, 2022 at 2:00 pm #1204755063
Brie Larson is debatable IMO. Her Captain Marvel isnt really well received and the only auteur (or if he counts as one) She constantly works with was Destin Daniel Cretton, who gave her leading breakthrough for Short Term 12. Thankfully Kong Skull Island was well received.
I don’t think Brie Larson qualifies seeing as how she didn’t have much of a career prior to her Oscar win. Being a major player in the MCU is a big upgrade to where she was pre-Room.January 27, 2022 at 1:56 pm #1204755045
We thought the worst case scenario for Spencer was it turning out to be another Jackie, but it actually would be lucky to be Jackie at this point.
