Best Actress Race Should Be A Hot One

When all is said and done with the campaigns (yes, the Oscar campaigns), I can see Meryl Streep as Thatcher, Glenn Close as a man in "Albert Nobbs" and Michelle Williams as Marylin Monroe going at it for what may be the most competitive best actress category in recent memory. Then throw in the other Olsen sister, Elizabeth, in a movie with many "Ms. Who is left to fill it out? How about Kirsten Dunst in "Meloncholia," a movie right up my alley of angst and depression.
Meanwhile, look for the roll-outs now as studios try to build up their stars and movies,. especially those not yet "officially" out. And yes, there was a real reason why that doc was named "For Your Consideration." It is time for that phrase to be used often in the industry. There are rules to follow when it comes to getting that Oscar nominations and it plays out very nicely toward the end of the year.
Just because a movie doesn't make it to your backyard doesn't mean it will not be there in the end. So, when we hear the usual, "But I never saw any of the see movies," it doesn't matter. I like the idea of a movie getting the slow roll out to pick up award season steam and buzz, and if it does well, a wide release follows. I also like the idea of the potential for 10 nominations for Best Picture because that will allow artsy, seldom seen movies in with blockbusters. Will that happen? Stay tuned.
