The Facts

This Year
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
Festivals: N/A

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.

Notes

Ranking: No. 1 as of Mar. 16, 2015
