Dear Oscar voters: Please don’t overlook Ann Dowd for her career-defining turn in ‘Mass’
Ann Dowd famously financed her own Best Supporting Actress Oscar campaign after she earned glowing reviews for her performance in “Compliance” (2012) but the indie film’s distributor, Magnolia Pictures, which picked up the title at the Sundance Film Festival, didn’t have the budget to send out screeners to academy voters. Despite winning Best Supporting Actress from the National Board of Review and receiving nominations from the Critics Choice Awards, Independent Spirit Awards and various other regional critics’ groups, the actor did not end up with an Oscar nomination. Now, almost a decade later, Dowd finds herself in the Oscar race yet again, thanks to another indie film that had its world premiere at Sundance: “Mass.” With Oscar voting commencing on Thursday, January 27, as of this writing, I ask of you, dear voters, to consider Dowd for her career-defining turn in the Bleecker Street release.
