Midnight in Paris
Octavia Spencer, The Help
Christopher Plummer, Beginners
Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
I hear Meryl Streep gave an outstanding performance. The best should always win. Although I know may were rooting for Viola Davis and Michelle Williams.
I Have yet to see the Artist. But I think from the hype we all knew it was a shoe in.
Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
Jean Dujardin, The Artist
Love this movie!
The Director gets his's point across so well and thoughtfully. The whole movie is structurally sound, yet still is very funny and quirky. I was first told of it by my mom, (it didn't have that much advertising) and then I watched the trailer, I quickly knew I was going to love it, and didn't even finish it. Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, and Other than that little slip up it's a wonderful love and other stuff story that is just sappy enough to keep your attention though the serious scenes. Watch it!
MY WEEK WITH MARILYN
This one was ok. It was a good movie, but it almost hurt a little to watch it, because it could have been amazing. Michelle Williams was spectacular, she was Marilyn. Every scene with her, you really couldn't take your eyes off of of the screen. But pretty much every other part of the movie was sub-parr. From the fleeting cinematography, to the choppy unfinished plot/characters it just didn't savour what it really had. Nevertheless it's still worth watching to see its retro aesthetic and Michelle Williams, just don't expect too much otherwise.
