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

When I was younger I was probably a bit of a snob about [taking on blockbuster roles].But they've gotten better.I've flirted with several of those films,having meetings and getting close,but ultimately it never felt like they'd really be fulfilling.There were too many requirements that went against my instincts for character.I've been spoiled.I've never had to make those compromises.I've not met a director yet with one of those films where we go through the script,they say: ‘You know what,fuck this set-piece,let's focus on the character!' I understand,but it's best I don't do it.

Telluride Lineup
The high altitude festival kicks off today with the following 27 film lineup.TFE never attends Telluride because it is against our "deeply held religious beliefs"to pay for the privilege of giving a festival free publicity (unlike most A list festivals you have to pay for a press pass).Titles in red are also playing at TIFF some of which have already played Cannes or Berlinale and some of which will also play NYFF.Titles in blue are playing NYFF but not TIFF which is a roundabout way of saying we'll be seeing most of them within a month,just not this very weekend!They'll also be giving awards/holding tributes to director Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs),Rooney Mara (Carol) --Nick made a funny-- and documentarian Adam Curtis (Bitter Lake) so Oscar Campaign Season has officially begun.Speaking of Rooney,here's the new poster forCarol.Unimaginative but pretty!

Off Screen
Vulturesmart negative review ofMiley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz.I like the album quite a lot more than this but salient points made
Broadway BuzzKathleen Turner to costar in "Would You Still Love Me..."Off Broadway.It's about gender reassignment surgery.But not her characters (sorry,Friendsfans).Her child is considering it in the play.
NYTa profile of a "fit-model".I include this because I had never heard of this job until I became friends some years ago with a girl who is one!(Hi,Jenn!) People get this job not from magazine-beauty but from having ideal/average proporations/measurements for clothes-sizes.It's always neat to realize that each industry has jobs you've never imagined that people can actually earn livings from.

I can't believe Telluride is giving Rooney Mara one of their tributes.What is there to even say about her?Maybe she'd be worthy in a couple of decades,but she's had a career for all of four years.

Suzanne,right?I forgot to include Nick's link here which i alluded to but he pointed out that the eventwould be short.

September 4,2015 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I'm happy for Tom McCarthy,who needs to redeem himself from the abomination that was The Cobbler.

September 4,2015 | Unregistered CommenterPam

The Many Rantings of John article is interesting,especially since THR is calling it for Maslany.Do you watch Orpah Black?YOU SHOULD!Especially if you enjoyed Sense8.

September 4,2015 | Unregistered CommenterBD

BD -- i tried to watch Orphan Black but didn't make it very far.VERY impressed with Maslany's work but otherwise I thought the writing / storytelling was weak.but maybe i'll give it another chance.or skip ahead a season or something.

September 4,2015 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

The trailer for "Carol"is captivating,but the poster is underwhelming.C'mon movie studios!

September 4,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoel V.

Yay for Candis!I found her to be very good on the underrated "Dirty Sexy Money"-- there was an episode where she had a scene with Donald Sutherland in which he tries to pay her off to leave his son's life,and she more than held her own.That was a really fun show that never recovered after the writer's strike.

"From a novel by the author of The Talented Mr.Ripley"?I dunno,just makes me feel sad that they're trying so hard not to mention Patricia Highsmith's name.

September 5,2015 | Unregistered CommenterEdward L.

Thanks for the link Nathaniel!I agree that Mad Men's love would be better spent on the acting trophies,though Hamm's work on Kimmy Schmidt may cause the dreaded vote-splitting.And I can't imagine the actors aren't thinking right now that if they had aired the entire seventh season together that they would have had a much better shot at a trophy (particularly Hendricks).

September 5,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJohn T

John T -- well except not because nothing was budging the needless double for Breaking Bad (which split its own finale to win two trophies for everything).sigh it's a gross cycle that will perpetually cause problems.

September 5,2015 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

RAMS is so good.Have Iceland selected it yet?Is it an Oscar nominee yet?

I was personally quite proud of my Telluride tweet...

"The greatest trick the Telluride Film Festival ever pulled was convincing the world it has clout and isn't just as shameless as Toronto."
