Manuel here. We all know it’s much too early to start drumming up 2016 Oscar talk (not that that’s stopping the folks at Sundance who are already championing Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, a film we already had on our radars). But, then the Zoolander 2 team release this viral video and well, Wiig is making a great case for a Best Supporting Actress nomination.
And before you scoff at me, remember that a Justin Theroux-penned outrageous comedy character that borders on caricature has already heard its name called on Oscar nomination morning. Oscars—and kidding—aside, 2016 looks to be a big one for Wiig what with that other high profile action comedy that reteams her with Bridesmaids co-star Melissa McCarthy.
