Variety critic Guy Lodge thinks Rachel should win the Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars

Quote:
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Rachel McAdams, “Spotlight.” Okay, this was a tricky one. I believe Rooney Mara gives, by several country miles, the most affecting, expressive and technically immaculate performance in this category. But by no stretch of the imagination is it a supporting turn: As the principal eyes, ears and heart of “Carol,” Mara has a scale of canvas to paint on that secondary characters simply can’t match, and to capitulate to the studio’s dishonest strategy is simply unfair. (Ditto another leading lady in the field, “The Danish Girl’s” Alicia Vikander.) Which actress, then, did the most for her film from the sidelines? In this field, I’d say McAdams, whose tacit empathy, focus and listening skills assist — support, even — some of the most riveting thespian exchanges in Tom McCarthy’s well-knitted ensemble piece. Written off as a “coattail nominee” by some, she does exactly the kind of smart, selfless acting at the edges that this category was made for.

EDIT: Another piece where it says Rachel should win and it's on Time.

Quote:
Should win: McAdams is superb as a diligent, compassionate reporter. But because Spotlight is widely considered to be an ensemble film, she’s likely to be overlooked.

Sam Smith loved 'Spotlight':

Quote:
Which of this year’s nominees are you rooting for?
One hundred million percent my favorite film, and I just think it should win everything, was “Spotlight.” I’ve never, ever in my life been in a cinema and felt so uncomfortable and affected by a film like that. I’ve never had that experience before in my life. I really, really hope that goes home with some awards. I thought it was absolutely incredible.

Aw, great quote from Sam Smith I wonder if he also gushed about About Time to Rachel, since he also tweeted about that one

Thanks for the article and tweet. A great column by Sacha on Spotlight:

So proud that Rachel has been a part of this movie. Thanks Lis

This award season has been a blast. I'm very happy and grateful that Rachel has got the chance to be such a big part of it I still can't believe sometimes that she's got nominated for an Oscar! What a tremendous ride it has been with Spotlight since TIFF. Part of me wants this award season never to end because it's been great for Rachel And another part of me is looking forward to seeing her next projects May this Oscar nomination be the first of many to come for her Best of luck to our girl and Spotlight tonight at the Oscars!

Sorry for the second post in the same thread on the same day but it's a very special day Kayleen gave a short phone interview about being Rachel's makeup artist this award season - I've been waiting for this for a long time and wish it were a duo interview with Rachel but it's still great to read her take about this special award season
