Best Actress 2015: Is red the new gold?

Read More

by Jazz Tangcay Will 2015’s Best Actress race be The Year of the Redhead? It’s only July and some might consider it a bit too early to be making any predictions about who’s going to win, but we can’t help ourselves. Amy Adams is already generating buzz for her upcoming role in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes. Julianne Moore already has one award under her arm after winning Best Actress in…

Amy Adams Gives up Seat for American Soldier

Read More

Reporting on the events she saw on her flight, Jamele Hill witnessed Amy Adams giving up her first class seat to an American soldier, something the flight crew has never seen before but frankly, they should see more often. I’d go so far as to say that any American soldier flying in the US from combat should automatically be upgraded to first class. “I was on a flight from Detroit…

OscarWatch: An Early Look at the Best Actress Race

Read More

As we head into another Oscar season you’ll see an array of representations of male characters of all ages and walks of life. Old, young, fat, thin, handsome, unattractive – you name it, they never run out of stories to be told about them. Women, such is not the case. Women have the choice of being the Bond girl, the superhero love interest, the regular love interest who helps male…

Leonardo DiCaprio and Amy Adams – Their Fate in the Balance

Read More

When both Amy Adams and Leonardo DiCaprio won at this past weekend’s Golden Globe awards it looked like they might have momentum to get into the Oscar race.  Their Globes wins, plus their BAFTA nominations make this seem very likely indeed.  It is going to depend on how much the Academy “liked” August: Osage County’s Meryl Streep, and how much they “liked” The Wolf of Wall Street.  The Academy is…

First Look at American Hustle

Read More

Last night was the first screening of American Hustle. The film is under a review embargo so I can’t really “review” it but I can give some brief notes. First off, Jennifer Lawrence steals this movie, as she steals every movie, playing Christian Bale’s wife. Pity any actress or actor who acts in the same movie as she does. She is a hurricane. If she hadn’t already been discovered by…

Best Actress: Cate Blanchett and her Challengers

Read More

This year, it feels like there is Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine and everyone else.  It isn’t that anyone is confident Blanchett can win. When Anne Thompson suggested Blanchett was the frontrunner she was was pounced upon by many of her colleagues who said the often heard Oscar season phrase, “no way.”  Even still, here it is September and a few performances insist upon sharing the spotlight. Most of the…

Picture of the Day: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Together yet again

Read More

This time for David O. Russell’s new movie (aka Valerie Perrine and Roy Scheider).  And Amy Adams and Christian Bale too.  Some photos come from JustJared.  Jennifer Lawrence is shown in these pics reading what looks like a script, though she famously does not look at the script, or her lines, until the day of shooting.  She says it’s worked well for her so far, helping her to react more…

Vanity Fair Before they Were Famous

Read More

Vanity Fair put up a gallery of photos of the young ones from days gone by.  You’ll notice an enduring trend going all the way back to the early days of Hollywood – cheesecake sells.  Actresses are measured by their hotness – almost like cuts of beef in the butcher display case.  There really is no fighting it.  Human nature, marketing – you get the idea.  But they are worth…
