Probably the winner if she went Supporting, but now she might miss the lineup entirelyTalk about coming out of nowhere. Highly supported by industry titans, this performance could surprise everyone on nomination morningThe Babylon divisiveness certainly didn’t help her causeNever materialized in a real way. The film’s tepid response did not helpNever got any footing with Don’t Look Up, but this seems more what the Academy is looking for

The film never got a start and despite good notices for Ackie, she’ll have to waitToo small, too foreignThe breakthrough candidate from one of the spotlight International entriesThe film never gained the traction she neededBones and All was never going to be an Oscar play. Too bad because Russell is remarkable
