The movie’s title 'Bombshell' is more than appropriate not only for the subject matter but a trio of performances that more than live up to the hype.
From an awards season perspective :
•"One cannot exaggerate how incedible Theron’s turn as Kelly truly is. Not only does she look hauntingly like Kelly at times, but her performance is grounded with a vocal similiarity that is simply a marvel to experience. Hours later we admit we’re still awestruck by her achievement."
Theron is a lock to earn a Best Actress nom and in any other year, she’d be a massive frontrunner to win.
Frontrunner is Renee Zellweger’s transformation into Judy Garland in the indie hit “Judy.”
Theron's work is more impressive, but is it too late to slow down the Zellweger train?
• "Robbie, who was also fantastic as Sharon Tate in 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' earlier this year, is even more impressive in this picture. She makes you believe Pospisil was a real life figure in the proceedings and completely nails one of the most emotional scenes in the movie."
She’d also be the top choice to win the Supporting Actress Oscar, but
“Marriage Story’s” Laura Dern and “Little Women’s” Florence Pugh have a massive say in that race.
This is arguably the best work of Robbie’s career and yes, she’s better here than she was in “I, Tonya.”
• Kidman, is very good, but is the most “supporting” of the three roles.
Lithgow is worthy enough to earn a Supporting Actor nom for his role, but that is such a competitive category.
