After Kristen Stewart whom garnered glowing reviews for her performance as Princess Diana in Spencer, another actress seems to be joining the¬†conversations: Jessica Chastain in The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Although critics was rather mixed on the film itself (61 on Metacritic and 73% on Rotten Tomatoes), most if not all critics have¬†singled out Jessica Chastain's performance¬†as Chastain's best work in her acting career so far. The film explores the¬†rise, fall, and redemption of¬†the eccentric televangelist Tammy Faye, including the controversy around her and her¬†husband's fraud scandal, her acceptance of LGBTQ views, and reaching out to¬†HIV/AIDS patients at the height of the AIDS epidemic in the mid-80s.¬†Some critics described her performance as "tour-de-force", "unstoppable", "¬†a crazed, committed, effusive, and empathetic performance", "¬†a career-best performance", "the most heartfelt performances of her career", and even one review (it's from GGD's #2¬†public enemy¬†New York Post but :poot:) said:¬†"Tammy Faye died in 2007.¬†Chastain‚Äôs revelation of a performance will give her new life ‚ÄĒ and the voice she never had."

Here are some tweets from those who've seen it

What do you think? I personally think she'll get a Best Actress nomination for this. While the film's quality and competitors from stronger movies (like Spencer) may stumble her way onto a win, a win is not entirely impossible, given the raves she's been getting. Also I think the makeup was quite distracting:selena:but from the people who've seen it I guess it won't really matter once you watch the film. Anyway I'm just glad that she's finally getting recognized again after so long (her last nomination was almost 9 years ago). Oscar or not, but with this and Scenes from a Marriage on HBO right now, to me she's winning regardless :vegas:

Fingers crossed for Chastain, Stewart, and Gaga in Best Actress next year :pray:

I mean she is an amazing actress. The best performance/ movie doesn't necessarily win tho it's who the academy decides they will give it to based on god knows what. 

Forever and Always!

It’s all about Hollywood politics. The academy members vote for whoever they feel should win. I doubt half of them even watch the movies :partysick:

Gaga's Oscar is cancelled...again :bradley: My gut tells me that Gaga's portrayal will be too campy up against these performances. Hopefully she at least snags a nom.

Or four with penelope cruz, kristen stewart lost best actress to her at venice film festival :selena:

Oh wow... I think gaga still edges out Penelope though due to her star power so let’s hope the film will be the catalyst that pushes ga to the top in everyone’s mind

Gaga competing with Olivia again. Interesting.

If you don't have any shadows, you're not standing in the LIGHT.
