Surprisingly, LA Critics chose Lopez.
Out of the 3 contenders I saw (her + Shuzhen and Dern) she gets my vote too.November 4, 2019 at 12:58 pm #1203166039
It’s interesting Tyson said that. I’m not American, so a lot of nuances escape me, but probably the whole welfare thing was the reason she turned down the role.
Also, Claudine was such a messy movie, at least to me. Carroll elevated it a lot, but still – she was fifth, lucky to have been nominated (70s were a mess when it comes to Best Actress category).October 28, 2019 at 6:18 am #1203155692
Wasn’t Page second for Summer and Smoke? She won the Globe, was nominated by NYFCC.
The case can be made for Sweet Bird too although maybe Davis was ahead of her. Interiors is another tricky one – I believe she was the second in lead and would have been behind Smith in supporting.October 22, 2019 at 12:40 am #1203147176
Baz Luhrmann is mine. Sadly, after Moulin Rouge he’s getting worse, but only Get Down was a disappointment for me. Yes, I do like a lot of stuff in Australia and Gatsby.October 18, 2019 at 1:40 pm #1203142908
All About Eve is the best acted in my opinion, but followed by:
On the Waterfront
Gone with the Wind
Terms od Endearment
Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf
From the more recent stuff:
Shakespeare in Love

Love her, but she’s often nominated over more deserving contenders:
The Post – Chastain, even Dench
FFJ – Adams
Into the Woods – Chastain (or Kulesza, but that was never going to happen)
AOC – Thompson
Music of the Heart – Witherspoon, Roth, Weaver, maybe even Paltrow
The Iron Lady – Swinton, Theron
She was perfect and deserving in Out of Africa and Cry in the Dark.August 27, 2019 at 12:36 am #1203042275
Can’t believe it’s not Ryan Murphy’s production for FX/Netflix.August 27, 2019 at 12:34 am #1203042271
Love Linney, but I have no idea how she pulled that off. After Globe nominations I thought she was 8th-9th in the line, behind Jolie, Knightley, Adams. I would not nominate her myself, but it’s hard to complain when a truly gifted performer receives recognition.
It was also puzzling to me that some pundits thought her nomination was expected and a nod for Blanchett (Globe, SAG, Bafta nominee) was a surprise in the category.August 23, 2019 at 6:03 am #1203035959
I think it looks bad, despite the impressive cast. Norton might have gotten a nod for a role like this 20 years ago.August 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm #1203033627
Kinda weird it is not written/directed by a woman or a gay man, but the teaser is pretty great. Only that one camera movement (close-up on Kidman) was kinda WTF and made me question the tone of the whole thing. Still hoping this is the story that gets Theron her overdue 3rd acting nom.
Also would not be surpirsed if Lithgow turned out to be the George Sanders of this.August 13, 2019 at 9:37 am #1203021968
It looks beautiful visually and there are signs that Ronan and Pugh will be up for awards.
Does not necessarily scream Best Picture contender though, but neither did Lady Bird and after that movie Gerwig deserves to have our trust. And yes, Chalamet in period clothes is HOT AF.July 17, 2019 at 6:27 am #1202981017
Catherine O’Hara should submit The Crowening. Levy, as the straight man of his show, does not really have a competitive tape IMO.
Chlumsky should go with the episode where she had her abortion rant (‘Pledge” I think).July 12, 2019 at 1:03 pm #1202972745
I think Witherspoon can forget about her acting Emmy. As executive producer she is going to have a hard time explaining this. Kidman won last year and is overshadowed by costars this time, so does not matter for her.
Also, feel sorry for Arnold.
