Can we make a new thread lol?November 30, 2021 at 5:05 pm #1204616326
Blanchett looks fantastic in Nightmare Alley and the screening for the film is today/tomorrow!November 30, 2021 at 5:01 pm #1204616318
I’m so sick of people saying that if one wins an award they are automatically the front runner like wtaf? Olivia Colman’s Gotham award DOES NOT place her as the front runner. The only thing that can be benefit from this award is that if it gains more interest/attraction to the public domain to watch the film and nothing else. Also, her competitors/fellow nominees were so weak (Not even Gaga, Stewart or Kidman were in this category/awards competition…
Now, Rachel Zegler in West Side Story. She is not winning the Oscar nor getting a nomination (highly unlikely). I’m much more interested in Nightmare Alley where Rooney Mara is lead in a Del Toro film which could allow her to have an even better chance to get in than Zegler. However, I do believe Blanchett will steal the film and win possibly Best Supporting Actress taking away Mara’s chances possibly.
In my opinion, Stewart and Kidman seem like the competitors in this battle with; Colman,Gaga,Cruz,Mara,Hudson,Chastain,Thompson,Haim and others in no particular order fighting for a nomination.November 29, 2021 at 6:46 pm #1204613764
I mean Hudson could happen, but you are reaching with this BR comparison. I’m so tired of “they played a legend” being used as a reason someone will get in. We have three people playing legends (Kidman, Hudson, and Stewart) and two people playing real life people (Gaga, Chastain). I don’t see a scenario where all five get in, and Hudson is looking like the weakest next to Chastain because Respect has no other narrative going for it other than Aretha’s legacy.
Actually, Kidman plays BOTH plays a Real life figure and a sitcom famous character. Therefore Kidman plays 2 different individuals all the others don’t… that is why Kidman has an advantage because her role is much more difficult and make her win.November 28, 2021 at 7:30 pm #1204611481
Victor I am curious to know your line up. As far as I have seen you are skeptical about each and every actress this year. Please update your predictions Gaga is bland, Kristen is whispery, Nicole in sorkins movie so she won’t win. Please update your predictions.
this is a jokeNovember 28, 2021 at 5:55 pm #1204611287
There is a lot of praise for Being The Ricardos with more and more putting Kidman in their predictions and even some saying that ‘this is Kidmans best performance’.November 27, 2021 at 5:31 am #1204609021
Can these ‘lady Gaga stans’ stop comparing her to other formidable actresses. I love Lady Gaga and all but I think she is better in the music industry rather than the film industry. It’s like saying these ‘tiktokers’ are better than the musicians/singers/dancers.. I’m not hating on Gaga but I would rather listen to a new album by her than seeing House Of Gucci.
In my honest opinion, Kidman seems likely to win with Stewart not far behind. Although Kidman’s film hasn’t been released yet, the praise and reviews seem promising so yh.November 26, 2021 at 7:51 pm #1204608596
Chris James says on Letterboxd about Being The Ricardos:
Such a fun watch! Sorkin’s best directorial effort by far (but that’s a bit of faint praise).
Never doubt Kidman. She nails the precision of Lucy’s comedy and allows us to see a new side of her off camera. It’s another incredible performance from her. The movie is most successful when it’s exploring the many friends fractures behind the scenes of I Love Lucy (a great ensemble). The frequent flashbacks are less successful and feel at odds with a final act that was tense, but maybe didn’t earn the payoff we got.
All in all, the perfect watch for the holidays. Parents will LOVE it!November 26, 2021 at 5:28 am #1204607454
Being The Ricardo’s are getting terrific reviews: E.g on letterbox;
Much closer to what I would expect from Aaron Sorkin: Director. A breeze to watch (I’d rewatch it, easily) while it lets its actors reel off dialogue to more measured editing speed. I still don’t understand his visual concepts, though. Still, it’s oddly old-fashioned in its look and sound. Kidman and Bardem are fantastic. She’s winning the Oscar, right? – Glenn Dunks
Looks like Kidman is going to get her 2nd Oscar!November 25, 2021 at 3:52 am #1204605667
Cate Blanchett looked sharped in Del Toro’s final trailer. I expect her performance to be phenomenal and be nominated and win in the race. I feel like this is going to be a Dunst VS Negga VS Blanchett race.November 25, 2021 at 3:47 am #1204605660
Ngl HOG is really boring in my opinion and not entertaining at all especially the screenplay.. This review accurately symbolises my feelings about this whole movie: https://youtu.be/tLxQWft-V3Q
1. Nicole Kidman – Being The Ricardo’s
2. Kristen Stewart – Spencer
3. Olivia Colman – The Lost Daughter
4. Penelope Cruz – Parallel Mothers
5. Rooney Mara – Nightmare Alley/Alana Haim – Licorice Pizza/ Jennifer Hudson – Respect / Jessica Chastain – The Eyes of Tammy Faye.
-NOTE: Actresses in 3-5 im currently skeptical about and I’m only 100% sure on Kidman/Stewart specifically that order also.Not now
