The awards season is officially upon us. The big Oscar nominees-to-be are getting their theatrical releases for awards eligibility. Spencer captivated movie fans since it first teased the poster and trailer, which hinted at a brilliant performance from Twilight star Kristen Stewart. However, she doesn’t have nearly the same level of excitement for a seemingly-locked nomination as her fans do. Stewart has other motives for her work in Spencer playing Diana, Princess of Wales.

Stewart’s Spencer takes place during the Christmas holidays. Diana is dreading spending the next few days with the royal family. She sees her marriage with Prince Charles as being at an end, but she still must endure the royal family’s exhausting traditions. She combats internal and external struggles as she tries to see a world of independence and freedom with her beloved children.
Critics and audiences alike have praised Stewart’s extraordinary Spencer performance as Diana. She accomplished the accent and captures many of Diana’s mannerisms, but still makes the portrayal her own. The 2022 Academy Awards frontrunners for the Best Actress category include Stewart, Nicole Kidman for Being the Ricardos, Lady Gaga for House of Gucci, Olivia Colman for The Lost Daughter, Frances McDormand for The Tragedy of Macbeth, Jessica Chastain for The Eyes of Tammy Faye, among others.

Variety recently talked with Stewart about all of the Oscar buzz that she’s been getting in Pablo Larraín’s haunting biopic. She bluntly responded, “I don’t give a sh*t.”
“The Oscars are such a funny thing,” Stewart said. “There are so many incredible movies and performances that barely get seen. It definitely says something about where we’re at as a cumulative presence – what we’re looking at, what we care about.”
However, the Spencer actor isn’t ungrateful for the incredible opportunity. She’s glad that the movie has people talking and wants people to continue connecting …
