Naomi wants it too
Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are spending NYE in St Bart’s with their children. Here they are on the beach today, perhaps some downtime before awards season and what’s looking like a very possible Oscar run...and win?
She’s been nominated for both a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe. They’re saying that her momentum has been building steadily and her campaign has been subtle but effective so far. Oh yes, of course, Naomi wants it too. With the exception of Joaquin Phoenix, we know by now that they all want it, right?
According to Awards Daily, Naomi Watts is the Academy’s perfect alternative to Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain, even though both their films are getting much more attention. People love Silver Linings Playbook, sure, but she’s just so young and there’s a big career ahead for her (think of Kate Winslet), and similarly, Chastain, some of them would feel like she just came out of nowhere, and that it would be too soon to give her everything...
But Naomi, Naomi’s been around a while. She’s worked with great people. She’s popular among her peers. She has a lot of friends who’d vote for her, not only for her performance on this film, but for her body of work -- good work, solid choices, and she hasn’t really had to be a c-nt to anyone else to get there.
It’s a race, it’s a race, it’s a race! We open 2013 with a legitimate race! Happy New Year!
