I'm having a serious brain freeze. Who's between Vera and Rachel?

So you didn't like any actresses who weren't nominated?>

Oh, Ellen Burstyn in Requiem For A Dream. Yeah, she looks very different in that picture then she does during the rest of the film. And yes, most of the performances that are my favorites are nominees, but I do like some unnominated ones. (Kristin Scott-Thomas in I've Loved You So Long, Sally Hawkins in Happy Go Lucky, Evan Rachel Wood in Thirteen).

So weird I don't recognise her, she looks so young. But I haven't seen that in a while.

Who's between Gabourey Sidibe and Melissa Leo? And I know I should know who's between Charlize and Laura Linney but I cant' seem to place her...

joe burns said...

In between Sidibe and Leo is Laura Linney in You Can Count On Me ad between Theron and Linney (for The Savages), is Felicity Huffman in Transamerica. Did you like my choices?

Sara919 said...

Okay, I've never seen You Can Count On Me and it's been awhile since I've seen Transamerica.

I do like your choices, at least from the performances I've seen. Are you going to make a list for your favorite lead and supporting actor nominees?

joe burns said...

Oh, you should see You Can Count On Me! What performances have you seen and which ones haven't you seen? And probably not, maybe, but I'm not really into the male categories.

A lot of yours I haven't seen, but I thought that Abbie Cornish was just okay in A Bright Star and you'll now my thoughts on Berry soon. Just my opinion. Glad that you like You Can Count On Me too!
