Jessica Chastain – Zero Dark Thirty
Marion Cotillard – Rust and Bone
Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook
Helen Mirren – Hitchcock
Emmanuelle Riva – Amour
Quvenzhané Wallis – Beasts of the Southern Wild
Naomi Watts – The Impossible
Rachel Weisz – The Deep Blue Sea
A lot of people try to dismiss Cotillard's chances but if she gets nominated (and IMO, she will) nobody will be able to say she was weak after all. She's been a frontrunner since march, hitting all major precursors and even if she backed up a little bit when Lawrence & Chastain came out, she has always been here. Let's be clear, I really don't believe she can win the oscar (Its gonna be Chastain or Lawrence) but a nomination has always been a sure thing IMO. We all knew it was gonna happened since she succeed so well in Hollywood & with indies, some fans tried to push her in supporting for Inception, then she scored with Nine (Critics' choice & Globe) & finally she gave a nearly oscar worthy performance in Midnight in Paris, making friends along the way and building one of the best post-oscar career I've seen in years.
It's not a surprise at the end, it's pretty fair actually, after all it's gonna be only her second nomination & honestly she deserves it because the performance worth it & because she kind of earned it like Naomi Watts. IMO the Oscar race is between Chastain & Lawrence but the SAGs & GLOBES will be a 4 way (Chastain, Lawrence, Cotillard, Watts). I predict the same lineup than the SAGs for the Oscars.
Both Realness and Nanny look stunning !
This is me dancing with Realness. I actually really danced with her later that night on Billie Jean.
And here's a crap one I took of Nanny.
Long time lurker, recent poster, so forgive me if I'm starting off on the wrong foot with you all, but...
Realness? That's stupid.
Lol I just remembered Watts replaced Chastain in that Diana movie and Chastain wrote a post on Facebook about how Naomi is one of her favorite actresses and her performance in Mulholland Drive is perfection.
here is Vanessa Redgrave with Emmanuelle Riva last night...new Besties
I really hope Realness is now Chastain's official AD moniker.
So the BAFTA... cleared up little
It cleared this up: Mirren is happening
I think it's safe to say it's down to 7 - the five who were nominated for BAFTA + Wallis & Watts. So either we'll get same lineup or they'll replace one of them, Yes Sherlock is being smart tonight.
"It's better to over analyse than not analyse at all." NM. 2000.
Watts is on the cusp. She could be Jolie'd (BFCA + SAG + GG + no BAFTA --> no Oscar)
Chastain, Cotillard, and Lawrence have everything.
Helen Mirren is 4th -- she has GG + SAG + BAFTA, and...is Oscar-winning dame Helen Mirren
5th spot: Watts (vs. Riva vs. Wallis)
