Happy 75th to Four-Time Oscar Nominee Marsha Mason







Simon’s writing had a sort of frame around it, where the characters were a blend of naturalistic and stylistic: they were characters who talked like you wish you always talked, and they existed somewhere between sitcom and reality (there were exceptions to this, of course, amongst his finest writing).梅森在她的三个演技提名roles-1977年的再见女郎,1979年的第二章,和1981年的只有当我笑这个相合的写作风格。她的演技,还有,隐约自我意识,并且投刚刚超越情景喜剧,刚下从舞台上的东西。在某些方面,这是很难知道多少她的方法和执行都在服务西蒙的写作,有多少是她自己的。


只有当我笑遗骸,在许多方面,从不亮或出手特别80年代初遗留下来的,感觉电影可爱的色调,梅森杀死它打谁失去了女儿克里斯蒂·麦克尼克(!)的监护权酒精演员,但有一个 summer to rebuild the relationship while she opens a new Broadway show basically playing herself.梅森费力她的指甲上的所有西蒙的笑话漫画时机,但性能更进一步。在向我们展示了这个女人谁几乎总是演戏,而且是那么害怕让任何人看到谁,她确实是,梅森仔细校准她让谁,当她让他们,以及为什么。西蒙给她写了一个漂亮的小唱段包括一个20分钟的伸展,她在她的朋友复发和显示出来琼哈克特的党和尴尬自己和大家。她小青的剑柄,处理与精度过山车转弯,找到人物的耻辱背后的令人不安的事实。她的大场面与硬质的,光荣的哈克特是影片的亮点:有喜悦在他们的对唱,它大增。

I just watched her guest star on this season's同妻俱乐部

Happy Birthday to a fellow St.Louisan!

The fake Marsha is loving this tribute.She always makes material better than it is on the page, and Only When I Laugh is a tragicomedy high point for her.And she was so hilarious in Frasier, I had almost forgotten that one.It's a shame Judd Apatow or Amy Schumer haven't thought to use her.

A really nice write-up and tribute to her.Thanks.

Eric, thank you for this lovely tribute to a wonderful and criminally under appreciated artist.Marsha brings such humanity and compassion to her work.It's terrible she didn't win the Oscar for OWIL.It's one of the best performances from that decade.Happy Birthday!

I've only seen her in THE GOODBYE GIRL, so I think it's time I see her other 3 Oscar-nominated performances in honor of her birthday.

Looks like CHAPTER TWO and CINDERELLA LIBERTY are available VOD, but ONLY WHEN I LAUGH is only on DVD?

Sadly enough, when searching the (3 different) public library systems here, under Marsha Mason they only carry THE GOODBYE GIRL, HEARTBREAK RIDGE, and BLUME IN LOVE?

Can't say that I'm a huge fan but this was beautiful to read.I love reading about your divas.Let's do some more!Babs and Bujold are also turning 75.Jane Fonda and Redgrave are turning 80!!!

In the 90s, I was a teenage cinephile and first noticed Marsha Mason in NICK OF TIME and 2 DAYS IN THE VALLEY.Neither film represents Mason at her best, but they introduced me to an actress who I was delighted to learn had received 4 Oscar nominations earlier in her career.I often wondered if some director would give her a role that reminded Hollywood of her talents, but nothing has materialized in the past 20 years.

thanks for this Eric.

My personal favorite of her performances is CINDERELLA LIBERTY这是我写在这里but i must confess: I've never seen ONLY WHEN I LAUGH.I was too young for it at the time and it's always been not readily available...though i think you can now rent it on Youtube?.

I feel sorry and deprived somewhat when it comes to Marsha Mason.Sorry that Hollywood must have seen her as mostly a vehicle for her husband's words, and also that her strength was in light social comedy.Good luck finding those made any more.

And I feel deprived because I really think she is probably capable of a lot more and we haven't had a chance to see it.I'm sort of surprised that she hasn't been better utilized by "peak television."

I just saw her in GRACE AND FRANKIE!
And yes please give her more roles now, at least from those Ryan Murphy shows lol

April 3, 2017 | 未注册的批评家Craver

I could have seen her in "Doubt" or in "Osage County" - it's really such a shame only one actress is offered plumb older-lady parts.As the son of an alcoholic mother.....everything about her in Only When I laugh was startling.Especially when she takes that first drink, very nonchalantly when she's with Hackett & James Coco.I thought she was fantastic - loved her as the white trash Sherry in Frasier & now she pops up on "The Middle." I hope she is doing well and is a happy person.

A lovely write-up, thanks Eric.Watching these films as an Oscar fan and actressexual in the early 2000s, the four nominations didn't make much sense on their own until I found out about Neil Simon.灰姑娘LIBERTY仍然是我的泥工的提名演出的喜爱。

奥黛丽玫瑰,并承诺在黑暗 - - 她从70年代两部电影都是现成的DVD,她在这两个了不起的。她是地球提名为后者。
