GRACE OF MONACO OUT OF OSCAR RACE


One of The Weinstein Company's biggest Oscar products this year, Grace of Monaco, which they gave a significant push to in Cannes, has been delayed to 2014. It will miss its scheduled debut of the 27th of November and will instead be released next Spring. Its Oscar hopes were already looking slim, what with the strong slate this year, including in the Best Actress category in which Nicole Kidman would have been contending. Perhaps the film isn't good enough - it wouldn't surprise me, Olivier Dahan isn't that good of a director - we've been informed that the film needs more time to be finished. A spring release suggests that TWC are giving up on any serious chances for Oscar consideration next year.
