Jennifer Aniston is apparently ‘flattered’ by all the Oscar buzz, or so she tells People Magazine. What Oscar buzz, you ask? Oh, just the Oscar buzz that Jennifer’s personal PR team has been spreading on her behalf. If we’re being brutally honest, Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Oscar buzz’ is all a product of Jennifer’s [admittedly excellent] publicists. Real Oscar pundits and awards prognosticators don’t even have Jennifer Aniston anywhere near the ballots for Best Actress, even though Jennifer’s performance in Cake is said to be one of the best of her career.
However, that in itself says a lot about where Jennifer Aniston stands in the industry right now. She’s a steady and consistent actress who always produces hit after hit, especially in comedy. But she has NEVER wowed the audiences or critics with her acting range, nor has she ever chosen roles outside of her comfort zone. In fact, most of the praise concerning her work in Cake was about how Jennifer Aniston finally, FINALLY took a chance with a role that was different and unique. Having seen the movie, I can tell you that she actually does a great job, but it’s not in any way enough to compete with legitimate Oscar contenders this season. First of all, Patricia Arquette and Julianne Moore [the two leading Best Actress contenders so far] are so far beyond Jennifer Aniston’s league, it’s not even funny. Go to any Oscar prediction site, and Jennifer is listed as an extreme long-shot.
So sure, Jennifer Aniston is ‘flattered’ by the Oscar buzz, and she’s ‘awkwardly and stutteringly’ reacting to the awards season talk – even though all this Oscar buzz is really just the product of her own team stuffing flowers up her ass.
