Too Young to Win?

Nathaniel, over at The Film Experience, has done some exhaustive research that proves being younger isn't always better when it comes to winning. We silly Oscar bloggers have been debating privately whether or not we think Jennifer Lawrence…

A Look at Best Actress

It is being said that this is the Year of the Actress. It very may be, and if it is, it's a long time coming. As we head out of the bulk of the year and into a very heated next four months, there are some things we know for sure. We…

Noomi Rapace: The Girl With the Oscar Campaign

This week's official pumpkin ride casts Noomi Rapace as Goth Cinderella in a dress rehearsal test-drive to the Oscar ball. The notion first took root when Nikki Finke reported that Raplace's new agent likes her a lot. A whole lot. Her…

Best Actress: The Heat is On

So far, the field is already half-filled with Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Lawrence. But out of Cannes, came three great performances. I saw two of them, Michelle Williams and Lesley Manville. I missed Naomi Watts in…

The music of John Adams in I Am Love

Frustrating to have a good feeling about a film but be unable to confirm our gut instinct because it's still in the protected pocket of limited release. We've posted as many relevant items as we can find about I Am Love (click the topic…

Access to Best Actress hopefuls

Acting Race Narrows, Except in One Category

Grey Gardens Promos Hit HBO

This is going to earn multiple nominations and awards, probably a win for Jessica Lange or Drew Barrymore. This is one. I've seen a different one as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hdp-wBfR0lg There are also some pics in this…

The Melissa Leo Thing

My friend and tipster has written in to explain his reasoning behind the possibility (no one said definite) sneak attack of Melissa Leo. I though you all might find it interesting. But before you lecture me about the validity of tips, let…

Women, Mothers, Judgment Calls

If there is one theme that weaves through the five Best Actress nominees this year is their own judgment, how they use it and where it gets them.¬† Meryl, Angelina, Melissa, Kate, Ann. Thematically, this is a constant in the five roles,…
