2024 Oscars - Best Lead Actress Poll

I picked the ten most high-profile actresses who all have major releases coming out this year and are most likely to be nominated for an Oscar. Who do you think will win the Oscar or who do you hope will win?

Can overdue Annette Bening finally be awarded an Oscar now in the form of an Oscar bait biopic as swimmer Diana Nyad now that Hilary Swank isn't in the running to sabotage her chances as she did twice before? Will Cate Blanchett be considered due for her third Oscar as a boozy nun after having lost for Tár last year despite being the frontrunner? Or will Jessica Lange take precedence for winning that so rare but coveted third Oscar for a performance of a lifetime that made her the first American actress nominated for an Olivier award and netted her a Tony? Will Academy favorite, Todd Haynes, be counted on as delivering nominations for his two lead actresses, Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman, in roles reminiscent of Margo Channing and Eve Harrington, or will they cancel each other out? Similarly, will Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain overpower the other in their 21st century version of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane or will Anne score a nomination instead for her take on a new Carol? Will Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren's biopics as a war journalist and Israel's first and only female Prime Minister respectively lead one to the front of the pack? Or will Lady Gaga finally make up for her snub two years ago for House of Gucci and capitalize on the momentum of Joaquin Phoenix's Oscar-winning performance as the Joker in the long-awaited sequel?

Penelope Cruz in L’immensità is another one I wanted to fit into the poll but didn't have space for. She's playing her favorite role, that of a mother, but this time of a trans son. Cruz's nominations tend to only come from American films or Pedro Almodóvar's Spanish films which is why I'm assuming she might not be a contender but then again, her nomination for Almodóvar's Parallel Mothers two years ago also came as a last minute surprise.

Julia should count her lucky stars she got one Oscar, even at the expense of Ellen Burstyn's second (or Joan Allen or Laura Linney's first and only). No one is clamoring for her to get a second. And if it wasn't for Weinstein, she wouldn't have even gotten a nomination for August: Osage County even though she clearly acted all over Meryl in that.

Some stars don't even have one yet like Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford.

Julia fits in comfortably with the type of star that Hollywood was willing to give one Oscar to but they're never going to be interested in awarding ever again because they're not considered real actors. For example, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Mel Gibson, Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, etc. They all got Oscars for their stardom and all they've done for Hollywood but that's all. Some like Gibson and Affleck never even got nods for acting but got their Oscars for directing or producing.

R18 perfectly stated. I just always assumed when you are over the top star the "actor" thing doesn't apply. Elizabeth Taylor. She was no great thespian.

by Anonymousreply 21May 20, 2023 7:17 AM

R22 Kathleen Turner would agree with you about Elizabeth Taylor being no real actress. Unfortunately, Kathleen doesn't even have one Oscar to her name.

And Liz having 2 Oscars is a special case. Her first one was because she nearly died and the Academy wanted to award her one for that. Plus the fact that she had been nominated several years in a row then without winning so it seemed like the last opportunity to award her. No one would have guessed that Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf would come out a few years later. In hindsight, I'm sure if the voters had known about that movie, they would have waited to just award her an Oscar then. Note that Virginia Woolf was her only Oscar nomination after winning her first Oscar. She is good in it but that's also mainly because she's just playing herself, as a shrill-voiced harridan.

The downside of Liz being awarded that first Oscar is that Deborah Kerr, who was then on her 6th and final nomination, would go Oscarless. To this day she's still the most nominated actress in the Lead Actress category without a competitive Oscar (Glenn only has 4 nominations in this category).

I haven't seen Liz in Raintree County yet since WB still refuses to release it on Blu-Ray but I did like her in Suddenly, Last Summer. That is until I saw the 1993 version with Natasha Richardson in the role and I realized what the character of Catherine was like with a real actress at the helm. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof I also wasn't impressed with but I've never liked any iteration of that play. Her acting was good in BUtterfield 8 but the movie was awful.

Janet Yang was responsible for all the awards EEAAO racked up at this year's Oscars. It was purely part of an agenda. Cate came to the Oscars dressed down and looking depressed because she knew they had rigged the game against her. Not to mention, only a few days prior Michelle Yeoh had flouted the rules and posted disparaging remarks about Cate which should have disqualified her immediately. Not under Janet Yang's presidency.

Yes R30, this is very true. Janet Yang was entirely out of line rooting for Michelle. I agree that Cate knew she was going home empty-handed.

That's what happens when you hire inept people to fill racial/gender quotas.

The fact is, white men are generally the most professional/punctual and most talented at directing/writing/producing/editing/cinematography/composing/costume design, etc.

And they make better leaders than women or people of color.

No wonder Hollywood has turned into such a mess the past decade, with many clueless women and POC in positions of power via affirmative action.

Why classify people? These days everyone is more or less accepted ... People will always say: ‘Him, he’s less handsome’; ‘Him, he’s too black’; ‘He is too white’ ... someone will always be saying ‘You are too’ [this or that] ...

If Andrea Riseborough could score an Oscar nomination for her little seen or heard movie, then Lange will have no issue raising awareness of her film. She is a film legend and adored by many actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Chastain, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, Naomi Watts, etc. Her performance as Mary Tyrone made her the first American actress to be nominated for an Olivier Award and she won the Tony in a career best role. She will have no trouble being nominated, let alone collecting her 3rd Oscar.

As for Lady Gaga, the first Joker was a monumental hit and won Joaquin Phoenix his Oscar. The character of the Joker has now won two Oscars so it's not ludicrous at all to believe that his distaff counterpart, Harley Quinn, will get a nomination in this long-awaited sequel especially when played by Lady Gaga who is the last great movie star who gets older viewers to actually buy tickets to adult prestige films.

[quote] Ridley Scott has a good news, bad news fall. The esteemed director has had a big hit and a big flop simultaneously. You see, even at 83 there’s still room for things that haven’t happened before! Scott’s “House of Gucci” — even with mixed reviews — has taken off at the box office. In two weeks, “Gucci,” starring Lady Gaga, has made $33.6 million. At MGM, they must be opening Champagne after so many flops. But Gaga won the New York Film Critics Award for Best Actress on Friday which spurred audiences into theaters. An NBC special on the history of the Gucci murder didn’t hurt. So “Gucci” is a hit. Now all they need is the Gucci family filing a lawsuit, and the PR will go through the roof. (Not like the MGM PR department has done a thing. But they can reap the benefits.) The bad news: “House of Gucci” has made more than 3 times the money Scott’s “The Last Duel” has taken in domestically– and in just two weeks. It’s actually made made more than “The Last Duel” earned worldwide ($29 mil).

If the play was a big hit, I'm not sure why a recreation of that play as a movie would be considered terrible. This is hardly Dear Evan Hansen or The Color Purple. Not to mention this is just the start of Lange's cinematic comeback.

And yes, LG was added to give the allusion she belongs in this company. That is a very typical psychological tactic. It’s along the lines of “everyone knows this person is_______” “It’s common knowledge”. Very obvious. OP put her in this poll for those reasons. Now he’s in meltdown when she’s criticized.

What's with the knocking of The Color Purple, aside from the obvious? It's a hit broadway adaptation of a beloved book and movie. It's bound to be good.

Spielberg and Winfrey are producing. It's a guaranteed Best Picture nominee right there.

Fantasia for Best Actress and Taraji for supporting.

Viola will go in supporting for AIR where she will most likely win her second oscar.

This mediocre cunt has no business in the acting categories when it was revealed her two song noms were shams- she changed ONE word in Diane Warren’s already finished song (it’s online), and Mark Ronson is the one who won for Shallow. There were five writers on that but Lady Gaga NEEDED an award.

R105 is a hero for exposing the Madonna freak. And lol at thinking the Golden Globes have credibility. Because Madonna has no Oscars but a measly little Golden Globe, the Madonna freak is posting that the Oscars have no value but the Golden Globe does lol. The Golden Globes have always been jokes and they have even less credibility now that they couldn't even get a TV channel to air them live. Imagine pretending the Golden Globes have validity because it's only the award Madonna was able to pick up.

Gaga is already an Oscar winner and very soon, she will have a second Oscar to join her first, this one for acting. She got backlash for House of Gucci because the media wanted to punish Gaga for her starpower and her crossover appeal in the midwest amongst conservatives. They could not handle the idea that she could be considered a peer of Nicole Kidman, Olivia Colman, Penelope Cruz, and Jessica Chastain which is why the Madonna freak is casting aspersions about this poll.

R116 A Map of the World was the movie where Sigourney Weaver was lead and Julianne Moore was supporting but thank you for reminding me about that because she did deserve attention for that film. Both actresses did actually.

Maps to the Stars came out in 2014 and had her playing an aging actress. Before Frances McDormand shit in a bucket, Julianne played a very similar scene. Julianne is basically playing Christina Crawford.

by Anonymousreply 122May 22, 2023 1:48 AM

R121 That was fake news I'm afraid.

[quote] First of all, I’ll say this, that [Gaga's] lines that she had in Italian were actually the best of any of the other actors. She really nailed the lines that were in spoken Italian. That kind of sways me to believe that there was a little more intention with her accent, because I see that she has a command of the language itself and that she understands the mechanics and definitely put some effort and time into it. A lot of the time she really gets the vowel sounds correct. You have to kind of slow down and pronounce each one the way they’re pronounced in Italian. For example, when she said, [using an accent] “I get bored”: The vowels were all executed perfectly. The other thing in that line are the Rs. If you can’t roll or trill your Rs in Italian, you’re going to sound American no matter what. She did a very good job of trilling, I would say almost all of, her Rs. For reference, Rs in Italian are made the way you pronounce the letter D in English. Your tongue just kind of lightly taps the gumline above your front teeth, whereas with Rs in English, it’s more guttural, in the back of your mouth. Another thing she did well is when she pronounces her th- sounds. Italians really struggle with that because they don’t have that aspirated th- sound. She says that more like a D. The downside with that, though, was that it was inconsistent, and she at times would slip out of those perfect vowel sounds and say things like kill instead of keel. She also had a very American-sounding H sound, which is another sound Italians don’t usually use. For example, in Italian, hotel is pronounced OH-tehl, like you don’t even hear the H. But she would often say the H words with a very natural American accent. It’s pretty tricky not to slip into those American sounds when you’re so accustomed to saying those words a certain way, especially when those vowel sounds are kind of hidden, tacked onto consonants that we use all the time in English. Another thing that came up was the fact that Italians, when they speak, they really love to use their hands and gesticulate. Going into it, I thought I would see a lot of people gesticulate the wrong way, because it’s almost like sign language. Italians literally have 40, 50 different hand gestures that all mean something very unique, very specific. If you use it the wrong way, it’s super-obvious to an Italian. But what I saw was that basically nobody gesticulated, including her—there just wasn’t any gesticulation. Overall, her accent conveyed an Italian spirit to me, if that makes sense? Despite the inconsistency.

Setting the record straight on Gaga's Italian accent. More from the link I posted above. Haters, please educate yourselves before casting judgment.

"Lady Gaga has talked a bit in interviews about how she wanted her character’s accent to reflect class differences and regional differences depending on who she was speaking to. How do you think she did with that?" "I definitely noticed a change when she was at that party, the lunch at the ski slope with all of [Adam Driver’s character] Maurizio’s friends. It got a little elevated for sure, a little more fluid. I did notice that that shift in that scene and certainly when she’s in the scenes at home, the little she spoke, I can see how maybe she pushed the accent a little bit more. She was doing something there."

"She also has talked about how she stayed in character for nine months. What do you think of that as a strategy for getting the accent down?" "I believe that, especially because when she spoke Italian, her spoken Italian was quite good. I got the feeling that she’d been speaking a lot of Italian and practicing her Italian. With regard to the accented English, I think you might run into an issue if in character for nine months and you’re doing a few things incorrectly, you might just be reinforcing something that’s not quite right. But I think that, if done correctly, that could be a very good strategy. Ideally, I think anybody attempting to do an Italian-accented English should get as much of a command of the Italian language as possible."

"Her accent got a lot of attention when Salma Hayek’s dialect coach from the film said she thought Lady Gaga sounded more Russian than Italian. What did you make of that?" "I think that that criticism might be in part due to some of the vowels not being crystal clear. I can see where there’s something going on with some of the vowels, maybe the I sounds, where there’s a little bit of a fluctuation in the vowel sound that can give it the kind of sounds you get in Russian. But it didn’t sound like a Russian accent to me. It sounded like a unique, not exactly standard Italian accent. There was a kind of a uniqueness to it, which perhaps is based on the original Italian dialect that her character in real life spoke. I don’t think it sounded Russian per se."

I think if the script were any good, Streep would’ve picked it up. It probably went to Bening after Sigourney Weaver passed.

I wouldn't be surprised if the time is ripe for Winslet to get another nomination and, depending on the competition, a win. She's had something of a resurgence after a decade of "meh" movies where she only got one nomination (Steve Jobs) following her win 14 years ago for The Reader.

In the last year she won every TV aware for Mare Of Easton, before that she got string reviews for "Ammonite" and just recently won a TV BAFTA for "I Am Ruth".

[quote] As for Lady Gaga, the first Joker was a monumental hit and won Joaquin Phoenix his Oscar. The character of the Joker has now won two Oscars so it's not ludicrous at all to believe that his distaff counterpart, Harley Quinn, will get a nomination in this long-awaited sequel especially when played by Lady Gaga who is the last great movie star who gets older viewers to actually buy tickets to adult prestige films. They will not dare snub Lady Gaga a second time.

This is, by far, the most asinine, idiotic, deranged bullshit I've ever read in my life. Gaga fans are fucking delusional.

Kate was wonderful in the quiet romantic film, Labor Day. I'm also surprised she didn't get any glowing accolades for Wonder Wheel which she felt was one of her most emotionally trying performances. Perhaps it was too soon after Blue Jasmine or the fact by 2016, Woody Allen's reputation was far worse than in 2013.

by Anonymousreply 230June 15, 2023 8:08 PM

R230 Kate has been in a series of duds since 2013 and is only recently returning to form with Ammonite, Mare Of Easttown & I Am Ruth. I wouldn't be surprised if The Academy welcome her back with a nomination for her Lee movie if it's any good.

She shouldn't have won for The Reader, that was Weinstein again. She was deserving for Sense And Sensibility or Eternal Sunshine.

R223 if Annette had gone Supporting for American Beauty (she was in about 1/4 of the movie) she would have been a winner 23 years ago and spared us hearing how Angelina was in love with her brother.

by Anonymousreply 231June 15, 2023 8:21 PM

Kate also has HBO's The Palace coming out this year plus she's working on another TV project with Todd Haynes. Ammonite wasn't that well received though. Early talks for nominations for her and Ronan quickly fizzled out.

Annette won the BAFTA for American Beauty and was the favorite that year. Hilary Swank was the dark horse winner.

by Anonymousreply 232June 15, 2023 8:28 PM

Hillary won lots of critics' awards including NY and LA plus the Golden Globe, she wasn't a dark horse winner that year at all. The movie didn't qualify at BAFTA til the the following year as it hadn't been released there

by Anonymousreply 233June 15, 2023 8:34 PM

R233 I always heard that Annette was the frontrunner but I suppose you're right then. Do you or anybody know who was the frontrunner for1989 when Jessica Tandy won? I remember hearing that people expected Michelle Pfeiffer to win for The Fabulous Baker Boys especially as she had won basically all the precursors minus the BAFTA.

by Anonymousreply 234June 15, 2023 8:38 PM

R234 I think Michelle would have been the main bet, she won the Globe for drama among many other awards including NY and LA (where she tied with Andie McDowell for Sex, Lies And Videotape!)

Tandy won Boston & Kansas and several others plus the Comedy Golden Globe.

My pick for 1989 would have been the smashing Pauline Collins for Shirley Valentine but she didn't have much traction in the US.

I don't recall this but guessing Tandy, while not a shock win as she was a sentimental choice in a Best Picture winner, was likely far from a dead cert.

Back then BAFTA was held after Oscar so wasn't predictive. In the 80s it tended to favour Brits. Plus a lot of movies that won acting Oscars were released later so competed the following year when the heat had cooled. A good example is Streep competing and losing BAFTA for Sophie's choice a year after she won every award going for it.

by Anonymousreply 235June 15, 2023 8:49 PM

R235 Thank you for confirming. It seems Michelle won all four critics awards and the GG so she likely was the frontrunner. I wonder if she's the first actress to have won all the precursors but lose out on the Oscar. Maybe it occurred again with Cate Blanchett for Tar because I thought she won almost all the critics awards as well.

That was probably Michelle's best chance for an Oscar but I don't begrudge Jessica Tandy the win especially after how badly Hollywood treated her for most of her career. I'm glad she had a late career resurgence.

Meryl's loss af the BAFTAs for Sophie's Choice may also have been because she won the BAFTA for French Lt's Woman the year prior. What surprised me more is that while Jessica Lange was nominated in the Best Actress category, it was for Tootsie and not Frances. I guess the BAFTAs chose that specifically because she had already won the Oscar for it, albeit in the supporting category.

I can definitely see Lange scoring nods for Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Places, Please. Her professional narrative is impeccable and precedes her, as does her iconic status as one of cinema’s premier actresses. Her highly successful forays into television and theater, which exposed her to a whole new generation of viewers, only underscore her stature and legend. We’ll see.

Apparently Jessica will win several awards for "LDJIN" including the Volpi Cup, NY critics, LA and BAFTA. She will lose the Oscar and Globe to someone who intends to play a slippery game, even claiming her legendary husband is on his last legs.

Jessica will triumph in 2025 though getting a clean sweep for Places, Please including her third Oscar. She will be helped in part when a climatic scene where she rips off her wig and screams at her audience goes viral on tik tok, making Jess a hit with the youngsters who start streaming her old movies and trading quotes from Titus, Blue Sky and King Kong.

She will also win another Emmy and SAG for the Dietrich biopic on TV and come out as a late in life lesbian during her Golden Globe Cecil B DeMille Award speech. Shortly after she will replace Glenn as Norma, due in part to her resurgence as a Box Office star, which unfortunately leads to her demise when a deranged Close cleaves her with the "Fatal Attraction knife" during the first day of shoots.
