    Mrs. Bening marching to her long-overdue Oscar.



    But I honestly can't make myself hope until I see her competition, her film delivers and so on. Too many heartbreaks so far.

    I remember Nyad being a script on the blacklist several years ago. The screenwriter of that was Robert Specland, however. Strange if it's a completely different script with same title.

    This is a great part for her. Diana's an incredibly tough & charismatic person, and iirc it took her many attempts over a few years to complete the swim, fighting storms, hypothermia, jellyfish, etc.

    There's a clip of her being stung by a swarm of box jellies (indescribable agony), but she refused to get back on the boat and swam for another 24 hours before she was forced to give up. It's insane.

    Can't wait for Annette to get her Oscar

    Free Solo was great, so hopefully this turns out well for Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin

    Oscar clip. But God, that video is intense just with her facial expressions!

    Off-topic, but do you happen to know who is this man next to her? Noticed him with Glenn couple of times in 2019.

    Come get your Oscar, Annette!

    Although STX distributing this is worrying.

    I am watching SATC lately and I find Samantha Jones is exactly like Bening. Especially the GIF.

    It's only International rights. I hope Searchlight can back this project domestically.
