Our group of anonymous UK-based Ampas and Bafta voters reveal their favourite awards season contenders so far. This week’s discussion: the women’s acting categories.
Connecting Oscar-winning films with audiences for over a decade
Renée Zellweger was born to be Judy and she gives her all in this role. Scarlett Johansson in Marriage Story really touched me and Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman should be nominated for Bombshell. Yes, Charlize undergoes an amazing transformation and you could tell she had researched everything for that role — however, for me, Nicole shines.
It’s a wild card, but I’d love to see Annette Bening nominated for The Report. There’s just something about her in that film that makes me take notice. For Bafta, I believe strongly Tilda Swinton deserves a nod for The Personal History Of David Copperfield. The best moments in the film are when she’s on screen.
