I’m slightly disturbed by this whole Tilda Swinton thing. I know she’s been getting raves for her performance in Julia. This has been going on all year long. She is probably going to get a nomination – even though SAG snubbed her. She is British. The Academy already gave her a prize for Michael Clayton. So, my question is this. If Tilda Swinton gets in, who gets dumped? Our five favorites right now for Best Actress are:
Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia – LOCKED
Carey Mulligan, An Education – LOCKED
Gabby Sidibe, Precious – LOCKED
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side – LOCKED
So then a fifth slot – Helen Mirren, Emily Blunt, Abbie Cornish, maybe Marion Cotillard, and then Tilda Swinton. It’s making my brain hurt. I am hoping for some civil discussion on this very crowded category — pause to reflect on how cool it is that Best Actress is crowded this year. A warning about comments — if this devolves in any way comments will be deleted. Thank you and Happy Holidays.
