[Blind Gossip] This actress started her own rumor that her movie is going to be nominated for an Oscar!
That Oscar “buzz” was generated by her own camp. Her team has been pushing incredibly hard for something – anything! They just want a nomination that they can promo for the next couple of months.
Best Picture? Best Actress?
NOOOOO! I can guarantee you that there will not be a nomination for any major award (Best Picture, Best Director, etc.) They might throw her a bone, though, like a nomination for a Supporting Actress. Not Lead Actress, though. Nor will it result in a win. The nomination would not be about her acting performance.
What’s wrong with her acting performance?
It’s not terrible, but she plays the same character in this movie that she plays in every movie. She has no range.
So, if the nomination wouldn’t be for her performance, what would it be for?
Nobody else will disclose this, but here’s what’s being pitched by her camp: To balance out the demographics of the nominees. To bank off her [January 2020 performance). To have her plug the show incessantly for the next couple of months.
Don’t all the nominees wind up promoting the show in some way?
Yes, but she is a relentless self-promoter and has a bigger social media following than just about any other potential nominee and god knows the show needs better ratings.
It’s a shame that nominations aren’t strictly about the performance… but let’s get our actress to the ceremony to boost those ratings!
