Nicole Kidman Won't Get Oscar Nomination for "Grace of Monaco"

Posted: September 30th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Nicole Kidman WonSubmit Comment
Nicole Kidman is considered a great actress, but also box office poison, since her last fifteen films failed to make a profit in theaters. Her next movie is "Grace of Monaco," in which the actress portrays Grace Kelly.

It's not clear whether there's an audience for such a film, but "Grace of Monaco" was recently acquired by The Weinstein Company, which makes money by getting their films and actors nominated for Oscars.

That plan started to take shape for "Grace of Monaco" when the studio set it for a November 27th release in order to make the film eligible for the Academy Awards. Does this mean that Kidman will end up with another Best Actress nomination? Not really.

The studio now announced that it has pushed the movie to spring of 2014 to give it more time to be completed. That decision pretty much killed the film's Oscar chances and any real potential to become a box office hit, making many wonder whether the film is a big mess.

The Weinstein Company was able to secure Best Pictures nominations for three consecutive years with "The King's Speech," "The Artist" and "Silver Linings Playbook." This year, the studio will be pushing "The Butler."

Meanwhile, early predictions are naming Sandra Bullock (Gravity) and Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) as two favorites for the Best Actress Oscar.

Just because the last fifteen films she's been suck doesn't me she's the poisonous factor in the equation, just that she makes sh*tty role choices.

Has it really been fifteen films since the Human Stain, because that flick was decent.

Wow, I really don't know where to even start with this one. But here goes:

"It's not clear whether there's an audience for such a film, but "Grace of Monaco" was recently acquired by The Weinstein Company, which makes money by getting their films and actors nominated for Oscars."

Is it ever clear if there's an audience for a film? Is a biopic about one of the most famous American actresses of all time really a scary bet?

Also, The Weinstein Company hardly makes their money by getting their films and actors nominated for Oscars. In fact, studies have been done to more or less confirm that the amount of money spent campaigning for Oscars hardly earns a high ROI unless the film was a box office success to begin with.

"The studio now announced that it has pushed the movie to spring of 2014 to give it more time to be completed. That decision pretty much killed the film's Oscar chances and any real potential to become a box office hit, making many wonder whether the film is a big mess."

Man, you really could not be more incorrect.

April 1st, 2011. Do you know what opened on that day? The King's Speech.

Weinstein biopics that had limited releases this year include Fruitvale Station and The Butler. Both films have enjoyed good box office returns and are very much in the Oscar race.

Is it more difficult to get an Oscar nomination if the film is released in the spring? Of course. But in this case, it's definitely not out of the question. It's all about the campaign at the end of the year. Bernie released in 2012 to very quiet buzz and still resulted in a Golden Globe nod for Jack Black at the end of the year and he stayed very much in the Oscar talk until nominations were announced. And this was through a company with not even half of the resources that TWC has.

Do I care if Nicole Kidman gets a nomination or if Grace of Monaco is successful? Absolutely not. I generally hate biopics and this sounds like fairly flat material. But your reasons for dismissing as a soon to be box office flop come only from your own weird mind and nothing else. And to intimate that an actress who has 3 Oscar nominations and 1 win is completely out of the race is just ridiculous. Nicole Kidman got an Oscar nomination from a film that had limited release in December and barely broke its budget only 3 years ago. Learn to know what you're talking about before you talk, please.

@velocityknown

Shut up. You're stupid. No one wants to hear your bullsh*t. Don't question the all-mighty Alex. Praise Alex. Alex be merciful.

Take your blasphemer logic some place else. Go f*ck a pig in the shower! I'm gonna f*cking kill you with a sniper rifle!

I'm cutting myself right now.

Kidman handles serious and mature projects (usually) that most people don't care for and therefore won't make any money...

Like in this case, ask any joe schmoe if which Hollywood actress became the Prince of Monaco & probably you'll get a blank stare or a shrug.

Question is...why should the average audience care of the about Grace Kelly? How can the film makers make the story interesting?

"Is a biopic about one of the most famous American actresses of all time really a scary bet?"

Depends. How much did the film cost? It all comes down to production cost versus the BO reciepts. You can spend 200mil on Transformers because you know you have an audience that will triple that investment.

If Grace of Monaco cost 5mil, well then, even though you won't hit the golden demo, who don't know Grace Kelly from Fred Astaire, you can still expect enough older people to buy tickets to perhaps triple or quadruple your investment.

That's what ROI means. Return on investment. How much you get from what you put in. The more the merrier, at least in the US.

As for Oscar bait and all that, dunno. A film perhaps aimed for the Oscars but appearing in the spring probably won't generate as much cash as a similar film appearing in the fall, just because latter year films pick up more receipts from award buzz.

Hard to say though that Weinstein and Company always aim to make their money from Oscar buzz, though, without looking at perhaps a ten year interval of their releases. A few recent releases isn't a big enough or wide enough data sample.


Anywho, you spent a lot of talky-talk telling Alex what he and everyone else knows, which is of course the obvious.
