2019 has been a fantastic year for female roles as I had 41 performances on my long list to cut down to make this top 25. I can only think that is an amazing way to notice the change in more interesting roles for females within film. I feel this list has a very good mixture of different types of roles across the different genres.
In the 1970s the wives of some New York gangsters in Hell’s Kitchen take over from their husbands when they are locked up in prison.
This isn’t the first time we have heard of people wanting James Bond to suddenly become a woman. I personally do not understand why and quite shocked that Pierce Brosnan has been the latest to come out and support Jane Bond as it is being branded about. I seriously do not understand why. Why should a male character be changed to female when we could just have a brand new franchise and character made up? Stop trying to make everything go overboard towards women. Something I have been rather annoyed about in recent years to be honest.
I want good interesting female characters not some gender swapped Bond. I mean come on as much as I enjoy a good Bond film the character is very outdated in terms of mannerisms which is probably how Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt (Bourne and Mission Impossible) have overtaken the action in the films. So why can’t we have a better Bond instead? Don’t just change the gender in an attempt to be politically correct, make the male version better and more relevant to 2019. We don’t hear people wanting Bourne or Hunt to be made female?
This year for the Best Actress in a Leading Role is a pretty strong one in all honesty and I personally think that is a fantastic thing for women in film! Considering everything that has happened in a past year or two we have seen a rise in good roles for women.
With the ceremony fast approaching let’s take a final look at the five nominees and I will try by best to explain who I think is going to win and who I actually want to win!
Last night the Screen Actor Guild awards took place and here are the winners!
Now these are the ones we have all been waiting for in what is a very strange Awards Season so far, it could well be a rather open race and it will certainly make for a very interesting night! With no clear favourite having had many different films take the awards so far at different events.
A Star is Born
The Razzie Awards celebrate the worst films and performances of the year, surely it should be a clean sweep for Holmes & Watson?
The Happytime Murders
Holmes & Watson
