Emma Stone picked up the Best Actress Critics Choice Award in Louis Vuitton

There’s been this interesting and strange feeling around the Best Actress race. While I still believe that Lily Gladstone will probably win the Oscar for Killers of the Flower Moon, Emma Stone is definitely becoming a major contender. Not to mention, Sandra Huller might be sort of an undercover favorite for some voters. Still, it feels like Emma might peel off a lot of voters when push comes to shove. I find that interesting. Emma ended up winning the Critics Choice Award for Best Actress. The only reason this didn’t happen at the Globes is because Lily won Actress-in-a-Drama, while Emma won for Comedy. If they’re in the same category, who gets the votes? Last night it was Emma. Emma wore this custom Louis Vuitton which reads, to me, like she honestly didn’t believe she would win. This dress screams “I’m just happy to be nominated.” Hm.

Lily Gladstone wore a custom Christian Siriano in a gorgeous shade of blue, possibly the best and most flattering dress I’ve seen on her during the awards season. I absolutely hope she goes with Sirano again for the other awards shows.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph wore another great dress, although this Jovana Louis feels slightly overworked. Too many elements. She won another supporting actress award – she’s really going to march through the awards season, picking up everything.

Greta Lee in Loewe. She’s been wearing some offbeat designers and I don’t think those looks have been doing her any favors. While this fabric is really cool, it would have been great if the design wasn’t “a pair of trousers and a long-sleeved polo.”

Tracee Ellis Ross wore one of the best “It’s just the Critics Choice Awards, I’ll wear a black dress” dresses. This is Fendi – so good!! So flattering.

    I’m rooting for Lily. That blue dress was gorgeous.

    I don’t think there’s anything particularly strange or mysterious about Emma’s win. If you’ve seen Poor Things you’d know she gave an absolutely mind-blowing performance. She’s truly exceptional. Lily is too, but it really is more supporting, so the category fraud whispers probably aren’t helping. Not to mention that Emma is incredibly popular among her peers, so she’d have a leg up even if people weren’t voting on merit (which in this case, they absolutely are.) So I really don’t think her accolades are the result of some nefarious forces. She gives an incredible performance, with far more screen time than her main competitor, and her coworkers love her. Of course she’d be a frontrunner.

      I still think Lily will pull it out but Emma was amazing. It’s really a two horse race. The performances, and the movies, are SO different from each other too.

      Lily is really supporting but I think people call voter fraud more when you go into Supporting when you’re a lead. (I love Viola Davis, who should’ve won for The Help, but she definitely did this for Fences.) If you think your role is strong enough, despite screen time, to go in lead, go for it. Worked for Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.

      Lily going lead definitely made this a virtual lock for Da’vine. She’s picking up everything and is the closest thing to a sure bet as there is. I can’t even remember who she’s competing against.

      • LTA says:

        You’re 100% right. What has stuck in my mind is the more recent situation where Michelle Williams submitted for lead for The Fablemans, and the considerable blowback that received. But I think a lot of that blowback has to do with the fact that a lot of people just did not like that performance. In Lily’s case (and as you pointed out, in Hopkins’ as well) if the performance is strong enough, the screentime ultimately isn’t an issue. And as you said, Lily going for lead has absolutely made Da’vine’s Supporting Actress Oscar a lock. Which I’d be thrilled with, though I do wish Danielle Brooks was getting more attention (on the flip side, I really don’t know what Emily Blunt is doing on all these shortlists.)

    I really wish they didn’t make the background with these red carpets black. It makes it really difficult to see so many of the dresses!

  4. TQ says:

    Tracee Ellis Ross looks fantastic — the dress is so beautifully tailored it fits like a glove. And love the Siriano on Lily Gladstone — agree that the color looks amazing on her.

    I think Emma will win the Oscar but I’m rooting for lily. Emma has already won one, it won’t really change her life or career to win again. She’ll still be one of this highest paid actresses around with her pick any of role. But this seems like lily’s big moment, so I’m rooting for her.

  6. J says:

    I think her dress is nice and her acting good, but I’m still so disappointed in her for taking on that awful movie Poor things. She says in interviews how she had to unlearn things – and I think she really shouldn’t have done that. The movie is so gross w the premise of putting a baby brain in a woman’s body and having that character go on to be so sexual. She’s not magically fully grown, she is a child still. It’s so messed up yet people celebrate it. The world is strange.

    • elizabeth says:

      I was just talking about this with a friend! She’s not magically a full grown adult; she’s developmentally about 5 years old. It’s really disturbing.

    • Yup, Me says:

      A baby brain in a body with adult hormones moving through it would likely be sexual as fuck, though. It’s got the parts and the engine with no training about when and where to appropriately express it. A lot of impulse and ego. Limited restraint or self control. About anything.

      • J says:

        That is so incredibly disturbing. At Yup – I am sure that is what the people making the movie (and the writer if the book before it) thought as well. Disgusting. Completely awful thought process entertained here.

      • J says:

        At Yup – well, who knows, what an awful thing to even spend time thinking about. That is my point – what you’re saying seems to be what the people who made this book and movie all agree and seem to celebrate. They spent all this time and effort imagining it into a movie for all to see and ponder as well. All of which is
        Absolutely disgusting and horrifying to me. I can’t believe this is a thing everyone is applauding and rewarding.
        This is part of why so many inappropriate and depraved things happen to the vulnerable

    • Torttu says:

      I will never watch this movie if I can avoid it. But it sounds as messy as the ridiculous movie “Old” in which the toddlers who physically age in a day somehow also gain life experience and (spoiler alert) when rescued are normal ten year olds. Or whatever.

    Greta Lee is a Fashion GURL and has been for years. I love that she has brought real fashion to the red carpet and not just pretty dresses. I wish more folks would do that. I’ve loved most of what she’s worn this awards season (especially that Loewe dress she wore to the Golden Globes – that was chef’s kiss).

    I’ve liked most of what Da’Vine has worn as well – except for this dress. I agree, it has far too many elements competing with each other. It looks like a design school student project.

    I also like Lily’s Siriano. I think she should stick with him for the rest of awards season.

    • LaraK says:

      DaVine’s dress is correndous. Why is it that whenever designers dress someone bigger than a size 8 they always want to clump fabric at their middle to show how much they “don’t care” and how “comfortable” they are with their size? Like, make something flattering! Take a page out of Christian Siriano’s book and actually dress the lady. Ugh.

      • BQM says:

        I haven’t liked any of Da’vine’s. I wish her stylist would take a look at Octavia Spencer for gorgeous plus size couture. She always kills it.

  8. elizabeth says:

    Lily’s skin is always so amazing. It’s luminous and poreless. She always looks otherworldly to me.

  9. Torttu says:

    Poor Things is a movie you’d have to pay me a thousand dollars to sit through. I absolutely can’t stand the trailer.
    Also, there are too many awards shows in January.

  10. DeeSea says:

    Wow: Tracee Ellis Ross took my breath away with this look. Stunning. I love her. Speaking of love, I love what Greta Lee was going for, but the attempt didn’t land. Great idea, poor execution.

    • Glamarazzi says:

      Ditto for Tracee – a dazzling look for her. Everything’s coming together, and the fit of the dress is perfection.

  11. NewfoundlandQueeen says:

    Emma is just stunning. It’s that smile, the unique humor and intelligence, the big eyes! She must really chafe so many women who waste time injecting all sorts of nasties, spending thousands each year trying to look like a truck stop version of a Real Housewife — it’s not the filler that makes someone pretty, it’s the light inside and she proves it ….

    • Jj says:

      I used to adore her. Right until I saw that she made such an utterly disgusting and truly horrifying film. In my opinion it is way too close to almost glorifying what I consider basically a thought experiment of something akin to grooming and abuse of and child and mentally disabled .

  12. Jen says:

    I hope Emma Stone wins. Her performance in Poor Things is an all-timer IMO. I don’t think Lily is the best of the year, let alone in that category (Sandra Huller is a very close second). But Oscars aren’t always about rewarding the “best” so who knows!

    • J says:

      As a fan of the film, can you explain how you can enjoy it despite the premise w the baby brain? I just cannot compute and am wondering if someone can explain. I will not argue or respond I honestly want to know the thinking behind it. To me, I can’t get past this. It goes against everything I think is right and all my protective instincts. I just don’t grasp how.
