Sally Field channeled grief over mother’s death into Lincoln

Read More

Sally Field was featured on ABC Evening News tonight in a story that originally aired on Valentine’s Day. Sally Field has been a beloved part of American pop culture for nearly a half-century. At 66, she has as many Best Actress Academy Awards as Meryl Streep. Pretty good for someone who began on the ABC sitcoms “Gidget” and “The Flying Nun.” “When I started in the business, I started in…

Best Supporting Actress Hopefuls on Variety – Kristen Stewart, Lorraine Toussaint, Kerry Washington, Rosemary DeWitt

Read More

Kerry Washington (Django Unchained), Kristen Stewart (On the Road), Lorraine Toussaint (Middle of Nowhere) and Rosemary DeWitt (Promised Land) discuss their various works. Of these, I’ve only seen Stewart and Toussant – both give great performances worthy of awards attention. We play this Oscar game to win, we pundits, so we predict those we think most likely to get in. But that doesn’t mean that we’re right and it doesn’t…

“Lyrical, grand and immersive,” Lincoln scores an A from EW

Read More

EW’s Owen Gleiberman says Speilberg’s Lincoln, scripted by Tony Kushner, “is one of the most authentic biographical dramas I’ve ever seen.” As the title character of Steven Spielberg’s solemnly transfixing Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis is tall and elegantly stooped, with thatchy gray-black hair, sunken cheeks, and a grin that tugs at the corners of his mouth whenever he tries to win someone over by telling them a good story (which is…

In a recent article on the Oscar race by Christopher Rosen an attempt was made to figure out which actors have the best shot at an Oscar nod in The Dark Knight Rises. There is only one. And her name is Anne Hathaway. Spirited, beautiful, liked by Academy members and the only performer singled out for her work in the film. She comes in at number two on Rosen’s list…

Peter Travers Goes to Bat for Harrelson, Redgrave

Because Rolling Stone is a long lead kind of thing, Peter Travers wanted the info out there that he was blown away by two performances worthy of Oscar attention. Vanessa Redgrave in Coriolanus and Woody Harrelson in Rampart (thanks to Jordan): Rampart Woody Harrelson Directed by Oren Moverman As Dave Brown (Harrelson), a sexist, racist, trigger-tempered police officer  carving out his own definition of justice on the mean streets of…

Talking Melissa McCarthy and Best Supporting Actress

Thelma Adams is assembling a few of us women Oscar peeps for an ongoing discussion of the Oscar race.   This is my favorite one of the bunch so far because the thing about Thelma Adams and Susan Wlosczcyna, Kim Voynar and Anne Thompson is that they’re funny.  So they make a great coffee klatch, just saying.  Here is a bit of it as we drill down McCarthy’s chance —…

The Help Kicks up a Firestorm

Probably those who greenlit The Help never imagined it would be birthed into a racially contentious time in our history.  It’s 2011 and we have our nation’s first black president – the shit has mostly hit the fan, but let’s face it – race relations have never entirely cooled down, not when Rodney King was beaten up, not when OJ was set free, not during Hurricane Katrina’s wrath, not now,…
