Zoe Kazan to Campaign in Lead, Carey Mulligan to Go Supporting for ‘She Said’

Some breaking Oscar campaign news to report. Last week at the New York Film Festival, Awards Radar editor Joey Magidson saw and raved about She Said. You can see his review of the movie here, which he called brilliant and proclaimed “She Said is a tribute not just to doing the hard work of journalism, but a testament to what can happen when survivors are given a voice.” One of the questions that has been speculated about this season is how stars Zoe Kazan and Carey Mulligan would be campaigned. Well, today we have that answer.

According to, Kazan will be campaigning in Best Actress, while Mulligan will be in the Best Supporting Actress race. This was actually something Joey had mentioned since the film screened, which will actually be gone into in depth during the next Awards Radar Podcast episode. so it appears that Universal agrees with him. Both women seem likely to be in the thick of the Oscar race for She Said, so this isn’t the last we’ve heard of Kazan and Mulligan this season.
