Who' s "overdue " for an oscar, REALLY ?

I read here that bloody Margot frigging Robbie was "overdue " for an oscar, and I felt like puking. It made me physically sick. Not that an oscar means anything anymore, but is there no bottom to that well of mediocrity ?, Now, who really IS overdue for an Oscar ? can be a competitive oscar or a lifetime achievement

Sigourney should have won for "Aliens" in 86.

Glenn for "Dangerous Liaisons" in 88.

Isabelle Huppert for "Elle" in 2016.

Sally Hawkins for "The Shape Of Water" in 2017.

At this point dear Glenn is like a brown banana.

Almost literally.

Glenn will get one once Sunset Boulevard debuts!

Glenn should have Oscars.

Margot Robbie is energetic and fun and should be happy if she's invited to attend an Oscar party.

Not if Salome is released the same year!

I'd say Annette should have won for The Grifters in 1990. She showed tits and bush!

Not Michele Williams or Amy Adams or Naomi Watts. No matter how frequently critics claim they are.

I wouldn't call Margot overdue for an Oscar but I don't think she's that bad OP.

R15, Shelley Duvall as Millie Lammoreaux in 3 Women is my all-time favorite screen performance, and she was also wonderful in The Shining. Would fully support an Honorary Award for her.

Isabelle Adjani, Isabelle Huppert, Judy Davis, Sally Hawkins, Sigourney Weaver, Barbara Hershey, Tom Wilkinson, and Ralph Fiennes are overdue to me in that they should have won at least one of their competitive races and have strong bodies of work overall.

Most egregious cases of an actor going completely unrewarded by the Academy during their lifetime? Gloria Swanson, whose impact on the medium of film at the very least merited an Honorary award, and Albert Finney, brilliant in many films, particularly in the curiously overlooked Shoot the Moon with Diane Keaton.

Most overdue for a second win? Sissy Spacek. Best filmography of her generation, versatile, inventive, and reliably imbues her performances with intriguing subtleties.

[quote] , and Albert Finney

and Alan Bates ? the fact that he only had 1 nom and no win is a crying shame for the academy

I think it's weird that reese witherspoon , Julia roberts, that chick who has two and looks like a horse, bullock and co have an oscar and Michelle Pfeiffer doesn't. there is something deeply wrong in that

I think the Oscars need to give an “in hindsight” award to honor a film or talent that was overlooked. They can call it a legacy award.

by Anonymousreply 40November 20, 2022 2:50 PM

Definitely Michelle Pfeiffer. No more Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock.

by Anonymousreply 41November 20, 2022 2:54 PM

Michelle is too mannered in speech to play any recognizable human beings.

And Glenn and sigourney probably won’t win because of the #overcorrection.

by Anonymousreply 42November 21, 2022 2:07 AM

Definitely Albert Finney of the deceased. But that’s because he never showed up.

Even his nominations - aren’t reflective of the many many other times he was deserving of one.

I, myself, ME is long long overdue for my second Oscar.

R44 for what Julia, cackling hysterically in Bali for 90 minutes?

by Anonymousreply 46November 21, 2022 5:34 AM

I actually thought jroberrs was surprisingly subdued in ticket to paradise. In fact, everyone was. It could have used some more ribald humor and a bigger comedic set piece or two. I wonder if the whole thing was just a cleverly arranged paid vacation to Bali for CAA talent because that script was meh.

Michelle should not have turned down The Silence Of The Lambs, saying it was distasteful.
