i talked a lot of shit about andrea riseborough getting an oscar nod but i just finished to leslie & holy hell did she do a phenomenal job.

she’s right up there with burstyn, cage, & bridges, with one of the best portrayals of addiction in all of cinema.

The Andrea Riseborough thing is a lot more layered than most people want to admit (between what it means for black folks, indie films, and the awards construct). But this quote from Christina Ricci is like… welcome to being a person of color in Hollywood

so you’re telling me the acting branch of the academy has had the power to push through overlooked performances like andrea riseborough this whole time and yet they did NOTHING for these two??

Problem is not that a long list of white actors were happy to champion Andrea Riseborough.

Problem is that none of them felt the need to do it for the minority contenders in lead categories.

Where were the grassroots campaigns, Q&As, private screenings for THEM all season?

The Academy has issued a statement saying they “are conducting a review of the campaign procedures around this year’s [Oscar] nominees, to ensure that no guidelines were violated, and to inform us whether changes to the guidelines may be needed in a new era of social media.”

doesn't need an Oscar, she's WAY better than the other actors nominated. If you still don't know who she is, it's probably because she never does the same role twice. I remember discovering her 10 years ago in Shadow Lover. My favorite actress ever since.

Andrea Riseborough’s performance is amazing, she earned that. My only thing is now that we know that actors can rally like this last minute for a campaign, I’m gonna need Winslet, Aniston, Theron and Paulson to show up like this for WOC in the future. We’re gonna remember this.
