Scene stealer Corey Stoll currently put forth as the best chance for any of the marvelous actors in Midnight in Paris to get recognition. I rather liked Kathy Bates as Gertrude Stein — but, like Stoll, her role is fairly small for Oscar.
Actor Corey Stoll, recently nominated for Best Supporting Actor by the Independent Spirit Awards for his portrayal of Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris will participate in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum’s forum “Hemingway’s Letters: From Childhood to Paris” on December 11, 2011. The afternoon will consist of a discussion of The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: Volume 1, 1907-1922 with Sandra Spanier, the book’s editor, and novelist Ward Just. Scott Simon, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, will moderate, and Stoll will read selections. The Kennedy Library is the major repository of Ernest Hemingway’s papers. A screening of Sony Pictures Classics’ Midnight in Paris will be shown following the forum.
