Nicole Kidman: 'Grace of Monaco' Delayed, Out of Oscar Race

Nicole Kidman flashes a smile while arriving at LAX Airport on Monday afternoon (September 23) in Los Angeles.

The 46-year-old actress was overseas in China attending events for the opening of Oriental Movie Metropolis.

Nicole‘s highly anticipated new film Grace of Monaco has reportedly been pushed to 2014 and it now will no longer be in contention for this year’s Oscar race, according to THR.

The film has originally set a release date for November 27 and because of Nicole‘s past success at the Oscars, it was almost a shoo-in to be a contender this season. The Weinstein Company, the studio behind the film decided that the movie needs more time to be completed and will be releasing it in Spring 2014 as a commercial entry rather than as an awards film.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Nicole Kidman’s new movie getting delayed?

    Weinstein is going to push Amy Adams in American Hustle this year, and then Nicole Kidman next. All very calculated.

    They realized how bad it really is. Poor casting choice.

    The ‘Diana’ disaster with Naomi Watts must have scared them off

    ok Says:

    no it stinks, and they know it will be embarrassing because they KNOW it will flop at the box office and the talk of the season will be how it was mediocre at best. No studio releases a viable Oscar contending film in the spring.

    Newsflash Says:

    To all the nitwit haters: The film was unfinished without a final score at the last industry screening. It is a testament to the filmmakers and backers that they recognize what needs to be done and put in the time to do so. Moulin Rouge was a spring release and is one of Nicole Kidman’s finest, most well-known performances and Oscar nominated. But I’m sure you all know better from behind your computer screen. LOL

    Still looking forward to watching it. Maybe it will make more money in the spring. Moving The Great Gatsby worked out well for WB. People were predicting doom because it was no longer having an Oscar qualifying run but it ended up doing extremely well at the box office

    Is anyone really surprised by this news. Another flop to add to Kidman’s LONG LIST OF FLOPS!!

    Mike: “Just screened this last night for Nielsen. It was horrendous. It didn’t know what it wanted to be was it a comedy or drama? It was like the Princess Diaries. There was no climax. There was no real issue. It was like #princessprobz. She came off as selfish and not likable by the bit. Whoever played Hitchcock did a good job but no Academy Awards here even though I have respect for Nicole Kidman’s performance. There are so many problems with this film I could go on forever!”

    KUNK train derailment is on course and picking up speed ……..

    lac Says:

    Though Kidman was never really in thick of the race, but she at least had an outside shot at being nominated (for Best Actress). Sigh. But then again,maybe they want to save the Grace movie for 2014 then.

    Same thing happened with Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, which is a fantastic film ( and criminally ignored in the Oscars), so who knows?

    Angelina Says:

    @anon:

    I agree with you in regards to it being a poor casting choice. Grace Kelly was an American, she was born in Philadelphia. Nicole Kidman is Australian with an Australian accent. Why put a strain on Kidman’s acting abilities with a fake American accent. Couldn’t the producers of ‘Grace of Monaco’ find an American actress for the role?

    And yes, I do realize that Nicole Kidman enjoy dual citizenship (Australian & America). But still…

    I would suggest Keith Urban go into immediate hiding because (despite the strained smile) Kidman will be furious with this latest career humiliation.

    Carolyn Says:

    Nice to see Nicole back in the U.S. I’m sure she’ll get a wonderful welcome from Keith and the girls when she gets home. Lovely woman.

    Headline should read – Nicole Kidman: ‘Grace of Monaco’ Bumped, NEVER IN Oscar Race

    @Angelina Says:

    @Angelina – your comment is ridiculous. Actors use different accents all the time. I guess Daniel Day Lewis shouldn’t have played Lincoln in your book. Robert Downey Jr shouldn’t play Sherlock Holmes. Cate Blanchett shouldn’t have played Katherine Hepburn. Charlie Hunnam shouldn’t play a California motorcycle gang member. While we’re at it, no New Yorker should play a Southerner. They are ACTORS. How silly would it be to cast an actor based on his natural born accent?

    Not buying it Says:

    Kidman cannot do accents full stop!

    Funny to see every single one of the negative comments is full of stupdity and bile.

    Haters can suck it, Grace of Monaco was not ready, it screened half finished.

    Mike Says:

    Hey up there, ever see Gone with the Wind? She was british playing a southerner & won the Oscar. Duh.

    Mindy Says:

    Kidman and another flop? Who is suprised? If it screened half finished, who cares, do you really want to suffer through the second half?

    Lizzie Says:

    “Grace of Monaco” had a Cannes opening and the critics weren’t too keen on it. There’s quite a few actresses who have a chance at being nominated this year; Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchet, Judy Dench, and no doubt a few others.
    Harvey’s China Metropolitis deal smells strongly of Nicole’s friend, Wendy Deng (Murdoch’s ex). Nicole seems to surround herself with devious people who’s only god is money. This is sad, as she was recently reported saying she had finally found true happiness through marriage and children. That seems to have changed, and she’ll find there’s no happiness surrounding yourself with morally corrupt parasites who only exist to cheat others. If she decides on this road, she can forget ever giving another good performance, it will always be money first.

    @Mindy: You really think the screening stopped after 45 minutes? Dumbas$.
