Colman was not ‘lazy’, she was filming The Crown iirc.
Her father got sick too- I also think the category fraud stuff bothered her as she said in her BAFTA speech that year so she probably wasn’t that keen to do a bunch of campaigning for the studio. Neither she nor Weisz was at the Critics Choice awards and Weisz missed the British Independent Film Awards too and Stone missed BAFTA. Obviously there could be legitimate reasons with all three of them but when reading between the lines I think they maybe all disliked the studio diverting their roles for award consideration when the film is really about the three women’s journeys as screenwriter Deborah Davis has stated.October 5, 2020 at 2:15 am #1203760423
Nobody thinks Vanessa Kirby or Kate Winslet can win?October 4, 2020 at 4:25 pm #1203759705
Close, Adams, and Williams seem to be the favorites to win their first Oscars.October 4, 2020 at 2:06 am #1203758061
1. The Favourite winning Best Original Screenplay at the BAFTAs along with Best British Film, Best Supporting Actress for Weisz, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.
2. Viola Davis winning the SAG for The Help.
3. Emanuelle Riva winning the Best Actress BAFTA for Amour.October 4, 2020 at 1:46 am #1203758054
Looks like Davis is the favorite right now. This category is shaping up to be way more interesting than last year but don’t count your chickens as the Oscars can disappoint all the time(Best Actress 2017, last year’s acting races, etc). I’d like to see Winslet win a second though as it has been a long time since she’s won and her career has been a bit bumpy since.July 26, 2020 at 3:50 am #1203603363

Haven’t seen Zellweger yet.May 28, 2020 at 2:46 am #1203504678
All six of her nominations were deserved- I thought she was highly deserving for The Reader which isn’t a perfect film but Winslet is fantastic in the role.April 23, 2020 at 4:12 am #1203443009
Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia, Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, Judy Holliday in Born Yesterday(and yes, it is because I don’t like the performance), Elizabeth Taylor in Butterfield 8, Sally Field in Places In The Heart,Louise Rainer in The Good Earth. I don’t care for Jane Fonda in Coming Home, Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby, Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry(unpopular opinion I know but I just don’t find much to admire in the performance besides the end), Halle Berry in Monster’s Ball.
I have seen the majority of the winners in this category and overall the winners are very good. I haven’t seen Renee yet but all of the 2010 winners that I have seen are exceptionally strong.It was a better decade for Best Actress than either the 2000s or the 1990s.April 23, 2020 at 3:55 am #1203442976
The ones that come to mind
- Gwyneth Paltrow (Fernanda Montenegro should have won)
- Reese Witherspoon (Felicity Huffman should have won)
- Julia Roberts (Ellen Burstyn should have won)
- Sandra Bullock (Tilda Swinton, Gabourey Sidibe or Carey Mulligan were WAY more deserving of the win)
- Jennifer Lawrence (Emmanuelle Riva should have won)
- Susan Sarandon (Elisabeth Shue or Sharon Stone should have won)
- Julianne Moore (Rosamund Pike should have won)
- Emma Stone (Isabelle Huppert should have won and it’s not even close)
- Renée Zellweger (Lupita Nyong’o should have been nominated and WON)
I’m personally not a fan of Burstyn’s performance. It was overcooked and overly mannered. I think Roberts was deserving. And Sarandon was magnificent. But these are all just my opinions of course.April 23, 2020 at 3:51 am #1203442966
Portman never said she did the dancing but the studio made that impression on the campaign. Portman was most likely pressured into not saying anything to correct that.April 9, 2020 at 5:45 am #1203417313
She was fine. Her singing was very mediocre though.April 9, 2020 at 5:42 am #1203417308
I continue to support her win.
She gave a natural performance and did her own singing. She had a natural chemistry with Phoenix and was equal to him and the perfect foil to Cash.
I remember all the moaning and whining when she won. Dench was better and Theron was better and Keira was better and Felicity was better and the kitchen sink was better blah blah and more blah.
She was a worthy winner imo and was the “best” compared to all of them.
ETA This is one of Mangold’s best films because he didn’t try to push things and allowed the cast to move beyond stereotypes.
She sounded pretty much nothing like June Carter.
