    She has the role, though.

    And Hollywood would fawn over having RBG all over Oscar season.

    I kind of agree with this point. What I'm worried about is her American accent.

    The only thing better than Viola winning Oscar #2 this year would be Felicia winning and causing forum-wide meltdowns (especially from the Portmaniacs!).

    I was curious and looked this movie up and it's an A24 film I hope it ends up being good. It's based on the short film, Share.

    I just read the summary for the short film and the actress playing the daughter (Rhianne Barreto) sounds like she could have a pretty good role too. I could definitely see A24 doing well with this if it is critically acclaimed.

    I dunno. They lapped up both The Theory of Everything AND That Turing movie a couple of years ago. I know RBG isn't a man, but this is exactly the kind of biopic they gravitate to. Focus Features too.

    With the exception of Phyllida Lloyd (Which again, she has Meryl Streep and Harvey behind), when was the last time we have an acting nominee for a dubious female director? I know this sounds weird, but let's keep in mind the female directors have to reach higher standards comparing the White male ones, even if they aren't nominated at the end.

    Lady Bird: Greta Gerwig
    Zero Dark Thirty: Kathryn Bigelow
    The Iron Lady: Phyllida Lloyd
    The Kids are all Right: Lisa Cholodenko
    Winter's Bone: Debra Granik
    The Hurt Locker: Kathryn Bigelow
    An Education: Lone Scherfig
    Frozen River: Courtney Hunt
    Away from Her: Sarah Polley
    Little Miss Sunshine: Valerie Feris
    North Country: Niki Caro
    Whale Rider: Niki Caro
    Something's Gotta Give: Nancy Meyers
    Lost in Translation: Sofia Coppola

    The only potential references for Mimi Leder are Nancy Meyers and Niki Caro (For North Country). But Nancy Meyers' film was a cultural hit that year and North Country came as Theron's sophomore effort in one of the most dreadful years in this category (2005). And if we go for Leder's film work on Metacritic and rotten tomatoes isn't encouraging. You may say the TV work is better, but then people like John Wells has similar path.

    Maybe with future News for the Focus switch can help, but I'm currently on the side of "On the Basis of Sex" can be one of the yearly "This had Oscar buzz" pretenders

    Interesting analysis. Oh, and 'Mary, Queen of Scots' was directed by a woman too.

    Felicity can absolutely happen as it's an incredible, baity role that requires spunk and determination, but the overall film won't be highly acclaimed. Script still gives me Battle of the Sexes vibes, but again, it's a timely biopic role. Focus is stacked, as well, and have other actress priorities, so it's difficult to get an official read until a release date, etc.

    Right now in alphabetical order:

    Kiki Layne, Beale Street
    Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me
    Saoirse Ronan, Queen of Scots
    Toni Collette, Hereditary
    Viola Davis, Widows

    Very unsure about Layne for variety of reasons, but she fits the newbie slot. Ronan and McCarthy can emerge as potential winners. Collette benefits from a hip studio and potential critics push. Viola Davis is hugely respected and her biggest role since her Oscar win is a huge McQueen film

    ALTERNATE:
    6) Felicity Jones, On the Basis of Sex
    7) Cate Blanchett, Where'd You Go, Bernadette
    8) Glenn Close, The Wife/Sunset Blvd
    9) Keira Knightley, Collette
    10) Emma Stone/Rachel Weisz, The Favourite

    DARK HORSES:
    Penelope Cruz, Everybody Knows
    Nicole Kidman, Destroyer
    Poorna Jagannathan, A24's Untitled Pippa Bianco Project
    Juli Jakab(?), Sunset

    I don't believe that Felicity needs the film to be raved to be nominated (and also to win). The role is iconic, timely and juicy and the narrative and campaign is written by itself.

    Just out of interest, are most people happy that Felicity Jones took over the lead role in 'On The Basis of Sex' or would you prefer if Natalie Portman had retained that role (also, do we know why Portman declined to take on that role herself)?

    I'd like to see Toni Collette be nominated, but since it's a horror movie and will be released in July I'm dubious (probably a good comparison would be to Essie Davis in 'The Babadook', though Collette is more well known than Davis it just seems like the sort of film/performance that critics love but won't translate into receiving awards attention).

    Felicity can be compared to Suffragette. That looked like slam dunk at the time. Script is borderline 65-70 MC level. Great role but not sure she can overcome a weak film ala Moore, etc.

    Focus also has conflict with Ronan and more films with BP status like Boy Erased. They got lucky this year but different circumstances. The test long destined Actor frontrunner and a latebreaking PTA film with DDL

    In America no one was interested in Suffragette (an English movement) while RBG is an American icon. I think the media will care a lot about this film (even more if RBG will give interviews for example) much more than the millionth version of Mary, Queen of Scots
