Oscar Watch: The Assistant

Julia Garner has already turned into an Emmy darling based on her supporting work as Ruth Langmore in Netflix’s Ozark. Last fall at the Telluride Film Festival, The Assistant was screened which features the actress in a tale of workplace harassment.

Directed by Kitty Green, the buzz for the film and Garner’s performance has grown steadily in the past few months. Now available for streaming, the Rotten Tomatoes score stands at an impressive 91%.

Will Oscar potentially notice Garner? The odds seem long at this point. While many release dates are uncertain, there’s plenty of actresses with awards bait roles lined up over the next several months. Yet I wouldn’t be surprised to see critics pushing for a surprise nod for The Assistant lead. It likely won’t materialize, but it’s at least possible. My Oscar Watch posts will continue…
