Jennifer Jason Leigh has received the following awards and nominations:
About the Film
Role: Daisy Domergue, a.k.a. The Prisoner, the fugitive of bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell)
U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.
U.S. Release Date: Nov. 13, 2015
Why? Voters overlooked Leigh for Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle (1994) and Georgia (1995), despite her kudos from critics. Leigh is the only woman with a prominent role in Quentin Tarantino’s latest.
Why not? Oscar’s only recognized one Tarantino-helmed female performance; The Hateful Eight as a whole might fall short of expectations. Diane Ladd might steal the overdue-veteran thunder this season.
