I kinda think Gwyneth Paltrow won for her best work. I don’t think she can ever top that, actually she reached her limits and yet she still wasn’t even the best from that lineup lol, which shows how limited she is as an actress from one part, and how undeserving she was. But she fits the topic, so…
My favorite from her is Royal Tenenbaums.May 21, 2019 at 4:54 am #1202902877
Weisz should have beaten King in supporting.May 19, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1202900349
Guys I’m about to enter full stan mode. The film is predicted to open to 20 million (with a 5 million budget) but we know Blumhouse movies and Octavia’s movies always over perform. Also, idk if it’s because they know my google searches but I’m seeing Ma’s ad EVERYWHERE. When I scroll on Instagram, on Facebook and before every YouTube video. I wouldn’t be surprised if the opening weekend climbs as high as 25-30 million, especially if the reviews are good (speaking of that why don’t we have any reactions from the trailer?). Anyways, May 31st we all need to go and support queen Octavia!!!!
Ma will be huge. Everyone I know wants to see it and the demographics are multi-generational and multi-racial.May 18, 2019 at 4:12 pm #1202898989
The only way Close will win an oscar is if she gets a disease or something tragic happens to her, like Elizabeth Taylor´s first win. Otherwise, she´s just getting an honorary one.
Near death only works for hot chicks: Taylor’s first, Jolie’s Hersholt.May 18, 2019 at 12:57 pm #1202898865
She can easily win two Oscars. A good strategy for the 3 movies is all what she needs. The movies needs to hit theaters in the most suitable period. A mid sept-nov release is what she needs. A good Oscar buzz and the opening of awards seasons will automatically translate into nominations from critics circles and the precursors. Netflix backing her up will also certainly help.
The movie with Mila Kunis looks baity af. If she delivers I mean if she really does, the critics will align and possibly the precursors. At this point she doesn’t need to sweep. SAG especially might want to check for someone else, but if she can win a GG, some few critics awards and a heavy campaign, I believe the Oscar is hers.
SB is a given, only if the movie is actually made. This is an Oscar caliber role, she will automatically be nominated. What the movie needs is a Joe Gillis (really famous to guarantee some visibility and B.O good numbers). They also need a hot ingenue for the supporting girl role Emma Stone would kill that part, a veteran actor for Max ( an actor that will follow the path of E Grant and Sam Elliott). If the movie is actually critically acclaimed all the cast will got nominated and Glenn is the one who will ultimately win. A great cast will definitely support her win.
For Close to win two Oscars on Oscar night would mean everyone is nervous that she’ll lose both categories and want to ensure she’ll go home with one.May 18, 2019 at 8:05 am #1202898601
It does seem like the loss or just the publicity from this season has really energized her film career.
If you look over her films for the past few years it was either small parts in big movies or just stuff I never even heard of.
2 or 3 big roles announced in the last 2 months is pretty good.
Close will get her proper third act if the Academy is forced to acknowledge her at every step.May 17, 2019 at 10:55 pm #1202898258
Good that Glenn is securing film work. Hoping her 7th loss was a wake up call for a mercy victory likely in supporting actress.May 15, 2019 at 6:31 pm #1202895603
Finale was wonderful, but I still think the show should have ended after season five.
Regardless, JLD earned her 179th Emmy with that episode.
I think my favorite part was when Selina called Marjorie “Peppermint Patty.”
Season 5’s finale would have worked as a series finale. A cruel one that isn’t as satisfactory as what we got. Season 6 of Veep tarnished its initial faultless legacy.May 14, 2019 at 8:49 am #1202893457
1. Roma was overrated.It didn’t deserve Best Director and Best Cinematography over The Favourite, a far more dynamic and innovative film. It seems as if it just won because the industry loves Cuaron and loves that he was able to get it made.Fine but to actually win? No.
Correct.May 13, 2019 at 9:20 pm #1202892860
The show is rarely funny for me and the finale was no exception, but this was definitely sharper than the last several episodes and is exactly what the show needed to reaffirm itself as competitive and the safe bet for the series Emmy. The stocks of all of the acting contenders rise too, as does the episode in writing, directing and editing.
Is it the style of comedy or the thematic material that left you cold about the show?May 12, 2019 at 10:08 pm #1202891226
The finale works for me. The cameo of a beloved cast member made the whole thing extra significant. Veep was faultless in its first five seasons. Season 6 was the beginning of long in the tooth. Julia’s cancer diagnosis caused a delay forcing a re-calibration for the 7th and final season. Can’t say things didn’t end strangely but it satisfied.
