Nicole Kidman's turn as the titular princess in Grace of Monaco looked Oscar bait-y in possibly the worst way—all glittery and self-serious—but Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter revealed that The Weinstein Company isn't placing any awards hope on the film. The movie has been bumped from November of this year to spring 2014, making it clear that maybe the movie isn't up to Harvey's Oscar standards.
Known for making mediocre films like The Artist into Oscar contenders, Harvey Weinstein seems to like winning that little gold guy more than just about anything else in the world. His The Weinstein company already has a lot on its plate for the awards season and even for the best actress rate with performances from Meryl Streep in August: Osage County and Judi Dench in Philomena likely in the running. Kidman may have been too hard a sell.
With Grace of Monaco off the slate that's one less film in an already incredibly busy fall calendar. Another film that may also leave the 2013 awards season race? Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, according to HitFix's Kristopher Tapley. Tapley reports that Scorsese is still editing the film and a bump from its November release (to December or next year for the 2014 Oscar race) may be in the cards.
