Festvials:

  • Sundance Film Festival (2014) – World Premiere

Why? Thompson scored standout reviews for her performance when Dear White People debuted at Sundance. The motion-picture academy sometimes responds well to topical films…

Why not? Seems like more of a screenplay nod than an acting bid, even though Thompson might land an Indie Spirit nod.

Ranking: Unranked as of Sept. 12, 2014
