Yeh. That was weird. Her acting was MUCH, I mean, MUCH better in Doubt yet she lost to Kate for the Reader

Had she won that year I wouldn't have minded Viola or other winning last year

Re: Who is your favorite Oscar's Best Actress of the last decade?

I think Viola's performance in the "The Help" probably deserved the Oscar (it was very moving)but after watching "Iron Lady" I guess I can see why Steep won. It was a solid if not spectacular performance.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Strange to see Maria call someone else young.

BTW how much influence does Harvey Weinstein have? The last 2 BA winners' films are his production

Re: Who is your favorite Oscar's Best Actress of the last decade?

Does anyone know why Kate won for "The Reader" and not "Revolutionary Road"? I remember she was winning all the major supporting awards for "The Reader", except at the Oscars where it was a lead nomination. I thought that was strange. Why wasn't she nominated for "The Reader" at the Oscars in the supporting category (she won the GG, Bafta and SAG so it would've been nearly a done-deal) or for "Revolutionary Road" in the leading category? It's strange...

Re: Who is your favorite Oscar's Best Actress of the last decade?

The Globes put her "The Reader" perf in supporting while Oscars don't put performances in any category before the vote. Members can write the name and the perf where they want, where they think it belongs. There was a lot of discussion about category fraud when people saw that she was beginning to get Supporting noms in awards shows and overall "The Reader" (for some reasons) has been better received than Rev Road by the Academy (noms for Best Pic and Best Director).

It's still possible that she actually got more votes for Rev Road but at the end she got more "number one" votes for "The Reader" (as it's a preferential ballot where members rank 5 performances, the number ones are tabulated first, then the seconds, etc..). And as an actor can't be nominated two times in the same category, the perf that got more votes (or most top votes with more weight) was chosen.

Kate Winslet's performance has never impressed me until I saw her in Revolutionary Road I still don't know why they thought she was better in The Reader than this one

Re: Who is your favorite Oscar's Best Actress of the last decade?

Just because she won an award doesnt mean its her best role. Sometimes actors win the award for their body of work and because they got shafted many times rather than because that role was their best ever. Al Pacino winning Best Actor for Scent of a Woman

did i say i liked the movie? no, i did not. "prometheus" was indeed total trash. all i said was, i used to think theron was trying too hard, but changed my mind a bit recently. personally i think it's even more a testament to an actor's talent when s/he does well in a movie that is terrible.

oh dear but pacino and de niro have been making fools of themselves in recent years anyway (SLP was quite the exception in deniro's case).
