The awards-season success of Emerald Fennell's "Promising Young Woman," a revenge thriller in which a woman methodically wreaks vengeance after her best friend is sexually assaulted, has spurred conversations about sexism in Hollywood and female empowerment on screen. Correspondent Holly Williams talks with Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan about the film's message and its fearless, complicated heroine.

Frances McDormand move over. Carey is on her way to win Best Actress Oscar...and definitely much deserved. She blew me away as did the film What a surprise...and a wild roller-coaster of a ride. Two thumbs up...

Ok, so you people, at the, Top, and the, Bottom, that's, WHITE people, only, mind you, are in deep conversation, and complaining to the, Italian Mafia, for their, past, verbal replacement of their, family. And you are, complainingly, telling them, to, STOP, so they can, speak to their, family. You are in deep, conversation, about this. They want to chat with you, Mafia, and fellow, White, about, WHY, and HOW, you were able to actually, and literally, replace their family! Let's get talking. We are in deep conversation. About all of these, White topics. We love these topics. And we love, the topics, ranging from, the year, 2012 (you know, the end of the, Human World, as depicted on the, Mayan Calendar), to whenever things rounded off ;) . We tried to end, our, People. Humans. We tried to end, our lives. There is a lot, to investigate. Hello, it’s, ME!, Brittney Lee Hill Collier. My Destiny, is to be, a famous, British actress, and a Royal, for the, United Kingdom. To date, I figured out that, Henry Cavill (he is the famous, British actor, who plays, Superman. He played, Superman, in, “Man of Steel,” which came out in the year, 2013), Tom Ellis (he is the famous, British actor, who plays, Lucifer, on the American, television show, “Lucifer.”), Russell Brand (he is the famous, Comedian, and British actor, who married, Katy Perry), Johnathan Rhys Meyers (he is the famous, Swedish actor, famous for starring, on the show, “The Tudors.” He is also, very famous, for starring, in the movie, “Match Point.”), and Louis Garrel (he is the famous, French actor, exalted, for starring, in the movie, “Ma Mere.” He is also, very famous, for starring, in the movie, “The Dreamers.”), are supposed to be my, Husbands. That means, all 6 of us, have it in our, Destiny, to be the, Kings, and Queen, of the, United Kingdom. Gosh, I’ve been trying to figure out, which famous, White actor, was my Husband (or, Husbands), since the year, 2011, or so. :D HAHAHA! So now, I’ll be traveling, back, to the, United Kingdom, from Fullerton, C.A. (Fullerton, C.A., is in the, Country, of, the United States, within the, County, of, Orang n e.). I went to the, United Kingdom, in 2020, during the, current, Global Pandemic. FACT. I’ve known the, Global Pandemic, was fake, since, it began. FACT. Now that I know who my, Husbands, are, I just have to wait, a month, exactly, and then I can travel, back, to the, United Kingdom, for the final time, to meet, and marry them. I will be, meeting them, in the city of, Essex. YAY, for me :D ! I have, 5, Hot Husbands. I’m so excited! They are, super sexy: beautiful, fun, wild party guys, intense, confident, cocky, and genius, Celebrity. I am lucky. I know (already), that they will, value, Monarchy, and Tradition, just as much as, I do, by the time I finally meet them in person. They better

There is a line in the movie that made me not want to see the movie. Some dude says being falsely accused is every man's nightmare. She responds with Do you know what every woman's nightmare is? She TOTALLY dismisses the fact that a woman falsely accusing someone is one of the most disgusting thing a person can do. Of YOUR son was falsely accused, you'd want the woman tarred and feathered.

@tori2dles Andra Day is on a whole other level of performance to Carey Mulligan in United States vs Billie Holliday, it’s literally something else. The only one other actress that can rival Day is Viola Davis.
tori2dles 20 өдрийн өмнө
Have you seen Andra Day in The US vs. Billie Holiday? I think she’ll get it. I wish the Oscars could have a tie because Carey was outstanding and so thought provoking. But Andra Day was also outstanding and Billie’s life and brave decision to keep singing _Strange Fruit_ even though she was being persecuted for it was also thought-provoking. Just the song itself and the imagery of it does me in. Anyhow, Carey in PYW was absolutely phenomenal.

...TOO much personal opinion and social tribalism here. Why cant people be more about entertainment, and less personal interpretation of social issues? I dont go to a film to see a "mans movie" or a "womans" movie...or black film....or Hungarian movie, i go because i want to be entertained. If i want politics, or social comment...ill go online ....

That movie was so amazing. Her performance was transformative. I wish there were words ENOUGH to express how much I loved this movie and each actors/actresses truly multidimensional facets to their characters. I didn't feel like I was watching a movie...I felt like I was watching someone I know. I didn't feel like they were "acting". That's a big deal with me. It's what makes a movie great versus good.

She reminds me of a British Michelle Williams, a chameleon who's good at everything, even her supporting roles have been the glue that's held movies intact. I thought she should've gotten nominated for Shame.

What about Waters, Harris, Tlaib, Omar, Bush, AOC, and many others who have called for violence, and destruction of property. Assault on law enforcement. Anarchy. They have called for all of these things time after time. While cities were being burnt down. Businesses looted. Court houses burned. Law enforcement killed. This is insurrection! This is criminal. This place's Americans in danger.

Would have been nice for the character in movie to have met someone without ulterior motive, with only a want to help another soul and spirit heal. That is Oscar worthy movie. We can speak whatever we want. Action is louder then words. Lead by example. And frankly, their is to much assualts. EMOTIONALLY or physically and both in the world today.

I was around when Thelma & Louise was released. Back then there was no shortage of men expressing alarm about "all the violence against men" in that Oscar nominated film. Taking stock, T&L shot air holes in the rear of a patrol car before making the the officer climb in the trunk -- so he could breathe. They blew up a tank truck in the desert (but not the obnoxious driver). They only killed one guy - the rapist. Yet plenty of guys Rashōmon'd what they saw on the screen.

Not a big fan of the film, kind of bleak to destroy your life in order to avenge your friend. Also the ending is highly unrealistic, the guys could have just called the police and said it was self defense, because technically it was, and no one who is a doctor would be stupid enough to try and burn a body with a metal necklace on it. Also idek what Laverne Cox’s role even was, she could have played a bigger part in the movie. Seems like they threw her in for diversity.

@Marianne Souza it is the most unpredictable category this year as every award is won by a different actress but Viola Davis won the SAG Award (a safe predictor) while Frances McDormand is an Oscar perennial, although the one that really deserves to win is Vanessa Kirby for her heart rending work in Pieces of a Woman

I think it's neck and neck between her and Viola Davis. Also, I think it helps that her only other nomination was over ten years ago. I remember when An Education came out she was being publicized as the next Audrey Hepburn. I think she's made a lot of really wise decisions since then in the roles she's chosen to play, this character embodying a lot regarding our current times.

It was. And I’d love to see her win it. But I think Andra Day will get it. Her portrayal of Billie Holiday was outstanding. Sometimes I wish there could be a tie. Anyhow, I’m guessing since Viola Davis and Frances McDormand are somewhat recent winners (& McD has 2 Oscars), maybe they Academy will give a newcomer a chance.
