It’s virtually a miracle that veteran actress Charlotte Rampling, along with IFC Films, was able to overcome some big names and studios to score this Oscar nomination.
Add that with no Golden Globe or SAG love, then that pretty much cements her place in the race.
But I would leave this open for a potential upset, and I’m using the word “potential” very loosely.: Reading her sister’s letter.
As far as the Oscars are concerned, they’ve typically loved the up and coming, hot women of Hollywood in a role that either challenges them physically (we used to call this simply “de-glam”) or one that hits the right pocket of the Academy at the right time in their careers.
This year, we have only one previous winner in the lineup with some “overdue” women in the hunt for their first dance with Oscar.
In this race, where Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan have been the talk of the circuit, along with the “narrative” not quite being there for her to win her second Oscar so soon (paired with lack of campaigning), she’s attending the party of the year just as an observer.
If there’s one certainty in any major category, it’s that the talented JLaw will not be winning her second Academy Award this year.: The final dance.
Welcome to our annual Oscar Circuit series, our deep down look into each and every category that will be presented at the upcoming Academy Awards.
Each writer of Awards will tackle a different category, offering up their own perspectives on those specific races.
The beauty and talent of Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan has been well-noticed and even more appreciated over her young career.
