Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan both deserved Oscar nominations for Freaky Friday.
I loved Jamie Lee in that one. Her comedic timing is gold. She is just so underrated outside of the horror fans realm.
The biggest limitation I think is that it was a Disney movie, hence the script was very light. If she could’ve been allowed to play the character with more risks, she would’ve been a worthy nominee. I know Depp got in, and Andrews won, but those are very different scenarios.March 10, 2020 at 9:55 pm #1203377785
Poor Glenn gets such abuse for her gold dress. Streep wore gold for two of her Oscars. Maybe Glenn figured if it worked for Streep….
I know 🙁 Glenn no doubt thought it would be her night. Most of us did. White seems to be the color most winners have worn in the last years.March 10, 2020 at 11:09 am #1203377167
Yes, confirmed. That’s the order in which we’d go down. That was the question, wasn’t it?March 10, 2020 at 10:50 am #1203377119
Gaga. Was. Never. Getting. The. Oscar. Over. Colman.
Even with a hypothetical Golden Globe win in Actress, that ASIB movie lost so much steam that its major strength became the song. If Glenn in a fucking gold dress did not beat the British joy that is Colman, Lady Gaga was never going to accomplish that either. I mean…March 10, 2020 at 10:45 am #1203377100
If category fraud was going to win that year, it should’ve been Mara. That being said, as I’m a stickler for being in the right category, I’d have given it to Jennifer Jason Leigh, even though I liked Mara’s performance better.
I hate when a new performer like Vikander (no beef with her) has a year where she’s pushed down our throats (It girls), which leads to an Oscar decision that affects many others more deserving work. I am now pissed for what they did to Mara 😠March 10, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203377080
Because that would have lowered the chances of both Blanchett and Mara to win and the Academy “followed” the distributor’s suggestion or “instruction” of who should be considered for lead and who for supporting. However, it’s not always the case that when 2 actors/actresses are both nominated in lead none of them ends up winning, as proven by the cases of for example Terms of Endearment (MacLaine and Winger) and Amadeus (Abraham and Hulce).
Why on earth would they think Cate was competitive in Lead just a couple of years after BJ? That just fucked up Mara.March 10, 2020 at 10:33 am #1203377058
Definitely a lead. The sad thing is, she probably would’ve been nominated if she went lead. I agree with the above, that while Mara and Blanchett are co-leads, if I had to choose which one is the real main character, it’s Mara, as we start the story with her and she’s the one who really changes.
A brilliant performance that, I think, deserves more love.March 9, 2020 at 9:04 am #1203375687
Oh no!!!! The Exorcist is one of my Top 3 movies. Max was brilliant in it. Rest In Peace.March 3, 2020 at 4:25 pm #1203369536
You so realize their characters are supposed to be incompatible right?
The portrayal of incompatible romantic interests does not exclude the notion of chemistry. There have been movie couples shown as “oil and water” on the surface but their scenes show powerful and passionate interaction. I had none of that in MS.
