MOVIE NEWS – There are surprises when the envelope containing the winner’s name is opened at the Oscars, but this year there is one candidate whose victory is almost certain.
Da’Vine Joy Randolph has been nominated for the Golden Statue for her performance in Winter Break, and there are many signs that she will take home the trophy. The actress was nominated for dozens of awards for the film, among which she already won the Golden Globe and four prestigious film critics’ awards. The profession therefore considers him the favorite, but the public also favors him: he also leads the bookmakers toweringly high. The Holdovers was also nominated for four other Oscars, so it looks like a statue for the main character Paul Giamatti, who also took home the Golden Globe for his performance in the film.< /p>
The name of the actress has only recently caught the attention of many people, although Randolph has been excellent for years, recently for example Murderer in the House in the series, where he plays with comedians such as Steve Martin and Martin Short. Randolph feels that he owes a lot to Eddie Murphy, because he learned important professional skills from him during the filming of the hit movie called Dolemite in My Name.
“Eddie showed us how to save energy,” Randolph told the Guardian. – In front of the camera, he tried to be funny, but when there was no recording, he became deathly calm and serious, he almost went into alpha mode. In The Holdovers, I did the same thing, just the other way around: I was happy off camera, I could barely contain myself, then when the recording came, the silent pain permeated me, I healed my wounds.”
In Winter Break, three people are stuck in a boarding high school for the Christmas holidays: a grumpy teacher (Giamatti), a troubled student (Dominic Sessa) and the cook (Randolph), who mourns her son who died in Vietnam. A special relationship is woven between the three outsiders in the forced confinement.
