The blog C’est la Gene had an article posted a while back during the release of Nine, titled La Plus Grande Actrice du Monde. That’s a big name to uphold… but you know, in honor of the positives reviews that Kidman’s Rabbit Hole has received, and for getting picked up by Lionsgate for distribution and entering the Award race, I decided to take some time to “translate” and dust off on my French.

Kawaii Joyuu is reporting that Japan has just chosen Dare mo Mamotte Kurenai (Nobody to Watch Over Me) to represent them in the next race for the Academy Awards. If they are successful, Japan would win Best Foreign Film for the 2nd time in a row, which would be awesome. I haven’t seen the film yet, but I’m skeptical…
They are also reporting a possible Oscar nod for Mirai Shida… which I’m a little even more skeptical.
First of all, it’s way too early to predict anything considering studios have decided to start late this year, meaning that “most” Academy contenders will be released in November and December. Except for films like Precious (aka. Push) or An Education which premiered at Sundance, it will all be about keeping momentum during new Academy releases season.
Then, as we all know the Academy lurvs English speaking. It is very rare for a non-English lead role to win… It’s happened twice in the Lead Actress category (and once? in Lead Actor with Benigni) with Sophia Loren for Two Women (which I recently saw, *swoon*) and my dear Marion Cotillard for La Vie en Rose~~~
I’m getting excited with this future Oscar race~~~
If it’s Hip, it’s Here has a great post taking a look at Cannes Film Festival, which is about to finish over the weekend… loads of films, some apparently extraordinary… others dividing the critics with controversy, just another year in Cannes~~~ If you really wanna know some of what’s been going on (celebrity-wise), head over to Lainey’s ramblings on what’s been going on there~
Check out some of the Hollywood classic photos after the break, including Ingrid Bergman, Natalie Wood, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, and Geraldine Chaplin.
Hold your breath, otherwise you’ll pass out with this Academy-Award-studded film~
Starring: Double Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis, Academy Award Winner Marion Cotillard, Academy Award Winner Judi Dench, Academy Award Winner Sophia Loren, Academy Award Winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award Winner Penelope Cruz
Directed by Academy Award Winner Rob Marshall.
If you want… it’s so much Ooh La~~~, watch it in HD. xD
Oh, Hugh… what happened to thee~~
But that’s another subject~~ It’s not like I despised Beyonce, and the Disney people on ‘my’ stage. I didn’t like them, that’s all. LOL’
It’s not like their Moulin Rouge number was totally unnecesary, instead they should have performed the Original Songs separately… and NOT have John Legend trying to butt in Jai Ho. On that subject, the drums… VERY COOL.
What else is cool (though mildly surprising…) – JAPAN WINNING, not ONE BUT TWO!!! For Best Short Film Animated – which was great – but also getting FOREIGN FILM, when I so totally thought Waltz with Bashir would win. Okuribito (Departures) took back home Foreign Film~~ I totally FLIPPED.
Other cool moments… Best Actress. GOSH! Sophia Loren… Shirley MacLaine… Marion Cotillard (My Marion, OUR Marion), Halle Berry and Nicole Kidman. AND! Kate Winslet winning! Introduced by Marion! And Sophia Loren with her accent… introducing the fab+++ Meryl! I’d die for an intro of any of those two.
Actually, that was my favorite category of the night, haha. I’m glad for Best Actor… and Supporting Actress~~~ Penelope!! I have to update an old post on Oscar Studded Films~~~
And Tina Fey!! She was funny~~ as James Franco was.
I think I did pretty good on predictions (20/24) … I hope no one did better than me in the contest I entered hahaha.
Slumdog took 8, while Button took 3, Milk 2, Dark Knight 2 – the rest, if not mistaken took 1. xD
Winners and more photos below the break~~
