“Happy-Go-Lucky” is considered Hawkins’ defining role và it brought her very close to nabbing an Oscar nomination. If her work in “The Shape of Water” is on par with her breakout, then she’ll easily find herself back in the Oscar conversation this year. Some reviewers are even calling Elisa her best performance ever.

“Elisa is, for any number of reasons, the kind of role that comes along just once a lifetime. Hawkins meets it with the performance of one,” Robbie Collin of The Telegraphwrites. “The London-born actress’s keen observational eye, technical control và puckish comic cảm biến have been evident in …but here they’re wed khổng lồ an emotional intensity and shivery eroticism that make you wriggle with delight.”

Variety praises Hawkins’ work as “marvelous” & “aheart-clutching silent star turn,” while The Playlist raves that “Hawkins is so perfectly expressive you kind of forget that .”

Wordless performances have had great success with Academy voters in the past: Marlee Matlin won Best Actress for “Children of a Lesser God”; Holly Hunter won Best Actress for “The Piano”; Jean Dujardin won Best Actor for “The Artist.” It’s too early lớn tell whether Hawkins will join their company, but the rapturous đánh giá prove she’s a contender to watch.
