There was nothing exceptional about Pike in Gone Girl. She just repeated the ole Blonde White Woman with a vengeance role that so many others before her have done and did it so much better than her. Charlize, Glenn, Sharon, Jessica, Nicole, and the list goes on. Although a very entertaining role, nothing that hasn’t been done before and certainly nothing exceptional. She lost and rightfully so that year.
the pike dilemma is just another case of mistaking compelling character with great performance.January 18, 2022 at 9:19 am #1204735857
I don’t even consider Up in the Air a great movie. It’s a fine movie that certainly didn’t deserve all those Oscar noms. Young Adult and Tully are good movies, but I guess Charlize did 80% of the job and Diablo Cody did the rest.
Yea his work is overrated. Reitman got lucky because of his father. his direction and writing is adequate. Never understood how he was nominated for best director for Juno when affleck directed the hell out of gone baby gone the same year.December 24, 2021 at 9:58 am #1204677368
Why do the people who want Kristen Stewart to win get so upset when anybody suggests that she may not win? There is hardly anybody who has said she isn’t competitive or that she won’t be nominated, but some of us think there are reasonable scenarios for a different actress to win this year, and some of us genuinely feel that she doesn’t deserve to win. There is nothing to get upset about over it.
because they (foolishly) equate it to being a haterDecember 16, 2021 at 6:55 pm #1204661530

Awardswatch just uploaded a podcast where they compared Gaga’s Oscar chances to JLo’s snub for Hustlers and Madonna getting snubbed for Evita. Awards prognosticators are really showing their biases this year.
Lmao they left out the part where madonna dont act and gaga and jenny are great actors. besides gaga already been nominated for star is born so they slow😂and ma jenny jus needs a stronger movie next time. Girl shoud of been in for out of sightDecember 13, 2021 at 11:33 am #1204652394
One could argue that Nicole is but Jessica definitely isn’t.
lol what does “uninspired nominees” even mean. is it because they are both biopics? the award is for acting not for the most compelling character. nicole and jessica played the hell out of lucille and tammy fayeDecember 11, 2021 at 5:46 pm #1204644873
Girl, I’m just glad to see some of the usuals here: You, Estrelas, Wolfali, baby Luca, Bassett, Rachel, DrewN92, QUEEN Vicky L, and now kalle whom I really like. We’ve lost some soldiers, but even though we may push for different women I always enjoy reading y’all takes
where kalle at lol cuz i cant rally for halle aloneDecember 10, 2021 at 11:27 am #1204642486
yup. I’m sure the director whose husband died of ALS would really appreciate being told he only made that movie to get Julianne Moore an Oscar… Jesus. Talk about clueless!
ignorance too. regardless, she was a worthy winner overdue or not. when she was frantically searching for the bathroom and her phone, her speech, at the end when she couldn’t even speak…Girl made still alice into a whole horror movie, she was that good. rosamund just had the most compelling character and the better movie but from an acting standpoint, julianne, reese, and marion were the best.December 9, 2021 at 5:41 pm #1204641050
I mean I’d love to see it but if there’s going to be any Black Actress that makes it all the way to the end this year, I feel it’s going to be Jennifer Hudson and Rightfully so. The way people on here disregard her performance is so strange, but yet will praise Jessica Chastain? I’m not seeing it. I’ve seen both films and although Jessica had some very heartfelt scenes, it just was nowhere on the level of Ms. Hudson.
Because Jessica was phenomenal in a garbage movie meanwhile Jennifer was just adequate. Girl never became Aretha at any point of that disastrous biopic. Mary j was the MVP of that whole mess.December 9, 2021 at 4:28 pm #1204640913
Lmaoo not people still dragging JLo ass when Selena and Out of Sight exist. It dont take a “best actress Oscar nomination” to recognize a good actor.
And comparing her to Gaga make zero sense. not only was both fantastic in their respective films but like someone mentioned, they’re in completely different circumstances, gaga having more edge. Will not be surprised if she gets in. She can and she should.Not now
