Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

An Actor's Director
GuardianSean Penn is returning to the director's chair for a South African romantic drama starring his new squeeze Charlize Theron (originally from South Africa so that's kind of cool) and Javier Bardem.My main concern with Penn as a director is that he's just so heavy/grim.I hope he finds a way for a range of tones here.This will also be Adele Exarchopoulos follow up toBlue is the Warmest Colour as she's playing a journalist

And finally...


AV Clublet's us now the remake ofTime Cop(1994) is back on.I don't care about this but I will take any excuse to post Jean Claude Van Damme's infamous kitchen counter split.It's one of my most vivid memories of 1990s moviegoing.What?

Nat - do you have any information on why "Enemy"has been given such a small,slow distribution even though "Prisoners"just had a big release and did pretty well for a grim,R-rated drama?It played for like 2 weeks in Chicago in one theater which is now only giving it midnight showings and hasn't really registered much anywhere else nationally.What happened?

DJDeeDay -- i assume it's a lack of faith on the part of distributors...i'm not sure.i have no info

I love Penn as a director.He is one of the few actors turned director that seems to know how to master mood.Loved the pledge and into the wild.Ps I saw Cabaret on broadway and williams was incredible as bowles.I loved her british accent.It almost seemed to present her insecurity and naivety very well.She is one of the best actresses of our generation and Alan Cumming was even better.He had the flu when i saw it and he was still amazing.The role of the emcee seemed to be tailor made for both him and Joel Grey.

Enemy was great until the ending - then it was stupid.I don't recommend it unless you are a Jake fanatic (per usual - he's pretty solid).
