The reviews have me dread seeing it opening weekend.August 7, 2019 at 9:06 pm #1203015164
If that’s the line-up, then I guess Nic is winning 2nd dildo. Weird, winning supporting actress after winning best actress.
Helen Hayes was the first woman to do so. Followed by Ingrid Bergman who had two Best Actress trophies before winning a third in supporting. No shame in 2nd Oscar wins in the supporting category if you already won a lead prize. Jack Nicholson was the first man to do so followed by Gene Hackman.August 5, 2019 at 10:45 pm #1203012018
Isabella Rossellini.August 4, 2019 at 9:02 am #1203009840
she’ll never do American theater…it seems like she doesn’t even come to the US for press, and she missed the Globes the first time she won.
Never say never. Her hesitation to do an American theater production may entirely be about not uprooting her children from their lives abroad. She’s young enough to position herself for Tony bids in the latter half of her career. Look at Elaine May, Glenda Jackson, and Cicely Tyson.August 3, 2019 at 9:54 pm #1203009361
Well, I’ll be in the minority here since I thought it was a really weak ending to a once great show.
For a show that dedicated so much time to the back story of its characters I personally felt that the ending was rushed and not true to its roots.
Outside of a few characters most of them either had an open ended story or a terrible ending (and yes I get prison is horrible but what they did to some characters story arcs this season is beyond unforgivable).
A big dissapointment for me.
Yeah, a chop to the throat is not where you end a character’s arc.August 2, 2019 at 5:01 pm #1203007779
They better be sending it wide soon because I’ve been waiting for like two months and I need to see another Oscar in the hands of the nurse from Halloween II.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0317524/?ref_=tt_cl_t10 I don’t get what this actress has do with Octavia Spencer?August 1, 2019 at 7:32 pm #1203006455
She isn’t hitting 30, but 25 is totally in reach for her. I wouldn’t expect too many past that. Winning a 4th might also kill her chances of garnering more nods, so she’s either getting nominated at least 4 – 5 more times, or she’s winning on an upcoming one and ending a record-breaking run. That said, she could be the first five-time winner.
A 5-time winner would mean more than 30 nods. And I don’t feel like there is any urgency to go there. Being good isn’t enough with Streep especially when The Iron Lady win relied on it being 29 years since Sophie’s Choice.August 1, 2019 at 1:21 pm #1203006010
On another note, I see Denzel Washington nabbing a few more nominations. He will definitely score at least 10. Likewise, he might be able to break Nicholson’s record and nab 12+ nominations. He probably has a few more leading roles in him, with a whole era of supporting nominations open for the year following. Al Pacino has more of an uphill battle, since his contention for The Irishman after 27 years of little attention from the Academy isn’t even a lock nomination, so I’d say he’s either peaked or has one more to go. De Niro has a better shot at scoring more nominations, but he won’t get to 10 either.
Washington’s done with supporting campaigns. He’ll Streep it in Best Actor whether they nominate him or not.August 1, 2019 at 6:20 am #1203005378
Amy Adams is having 6 right now so she has to be double nominated in 2021, which I just can’t imagine will happen… The actresses with 7 nominations have more prospects than her: Cate – either Bernadette or Lucille Ball biopic, Kate – Ammonite, Glenn – Hillbilly Elegy or Sunset, Judi – Cats (if the Academy loves that movie and she coattails)
Once Adams secures her overdue they’ll have an easier time denying her additional nods because her count is already inflated for someone of her modest talent.August 1, 2019 at 5:25 am #1203005326
Are people forgetting Williams has Brokeback Mountain in her filmography? She has what should have been a Best Picture winner, just saying lol. And also, I’m not sure Williams’ supporting performances were coattails. I wasn’t following awards back then when she was nominated for Brokeback but she definitely didn’t coattail with Manchester by the Sea. She was easily runner up that year and would have an Oscar already if Davis was campaigned in lead, which she was lol.
Brokeback Mountain was never a masterpiece to me. And I don’t think much of Ang Lee.August 1, 2019 at 5:24 am #1203005324
The only way that would happen would be if voters were paranoid she wouldn’t win either category. And just voted her each to make sure a narrow victory was had somewhere.July 31, 2019 at 4:58 pm #1203004663
It’s hard for anyone to win a 2nd Oscar, so I doubt either will but it’s very possible for either of them to win 2. I just hope if either of them only win 1 that’s it’s for lead.
Adams seems like a done deal once she wins. That’s why I have Williams winning twice. If one of them were to win twice.
