you are right. So I shall rephrase it: based on her performances in Midnight and Dark Knight, I am not super surprised that she hasn't been nominated for any of her English-speaking roles yet.
Jeffrey Wells already in full crusade mode for Before Midnight, saying it is a contender for acting and screenplay

Legend Bening for "Look of Love".
LOL...Bening will remain Oscarless until the night she recieves an honorary Oscar...but even that won't be a real 'Oscar' and it won't be televised so no one will care and it won't count.
After the catastrophic promotion of "Two Lovers", If James Gray has accepted to work again with Harvey then he must have been extremely convincing & harvey must have big plans for it.
Gray said multiple times that "Lowlife" is gonna be his best work & that Marion was the best actor he ever worked with, so that's mostly the reason why I believe she's gonna be great. Cannes will certainly seal her fate. If she gets at least the same buzz than the one she got for "Rust & Bone" then she should make it without too much trouble after all it's with James Gray, Harvey & an English speaking role this time. Of course if she wins the acting prize or if the movie wins a prize then she will undoubtedly be there (Only one prize per movie can be given at Cannes).
Also, "Lowlife" was actually ready for Toronto but they pushed it to 2013. I suspect it was because of Cotillard with "Rust and Bone" and Phoenix with "The Master", Harvey certainly believed in both of them (didn't happened for her, unfortunately). I don't think Gray would've waited 9 month to release his movie just to be at Cannes, we all know how excited he is about it, look at his interviews. They certainly moved the schedule because of them & because he was scared to overshadow SLP and/or Django. On another hand it's a smart move because if the next Gray is the masterpiece Gray & Harvey seems to believe it is, then maybe it was best for Django, Silver linings Playbook & Lowlife. Harvey is good but 3 movies, it's a lot to support if you want them in all the big categories.
Well there is hope yet for Cotillard...
Maybe she will star in 'The Artist II' and get to show off her silent movie queen skills...
Streep/August: Osage County
God I hope not! aside from Blanchett/ Winslet I'm already hating that line-up
Seyfried and Wasikowska are two of my least favorite young actresses.....Streep is a ledgend but I'm tired of her always getting nominated for okay performances
Of course I have not seen these performances they might blow me away....you never know, I'm being negative
Legend Mara - lighting up our screens since 2009
Winslet also seems pretty likely. Reitman has had a good track record as of late, and it's a baity role (depressed single mom).
I doubt Lovelace happens anywhere (I don't know if the post-Sundance buzz will be 'loud' enough), and Carol is possible, though I would think Wasikowska would drop to Supporting so they could try to more easily milk it for two nominations.
However, Bullock (Gravity) and Cotillard (Lowlife) seem like two other good year-in-advance picks, in addition to Streep and Winslet. Gravity already has very positive word on it from early screenings, including for Bullock's performance. Cotillard's role is incredibly baity (immigrant tricked into life of vaudeville) and she has Weinstein and probably some residual good will from this year.
After this year's Best Supp Actor/Actress redux, I won't be surprised if Actress is the next one that will have five comeback nominees or even winners. Of course, five comeback noms already happened here before in 94. So it's really possible to happen again. If there are five comeback noms, I'd say.. Streep, WInslet, Bullock, Cotillard, and maybe Watts for the last spot. Or if winners, then replace with Kidman/Blanchett. That's gonna be a riot here. Halle Berry better be happy she's not in contention.
Also, Reitman's last feature failed to grab her lead actress a nod (Theron in Young Adult), though of course Winslet easily gains traction than Theron and the latter is seen in a lightweight movie. But I don't think Winslet is an easy comeback nom. And it still aches that Theron missed last year. Her performance in Young Adult >>>>>>>> the five nominees combined.
So is Kidman going supporting for Stoker?
