Beauty vs Beast: Nanny Dearest

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- today we're wishing a happy 32 to one of our absolute favorite working actresses,the great Mackenzie Davis.If you watchedHalt and Catch Fireyou got it the second her "Cameron"showed up and from that moment on it's just been a long slow waiting game for the rest of the world to catch up.But catch up they have,I think - I mean she is about to star in aTerminatormovie so I think they have.Whether she'll have anything of actual substance to do in that we'll have to wait and see.

But we'll always haveTully!Jason Retiman's 2018 film was one of our faves (Nathaniel gave it several nominations and a win for its screenplay inhis Film Bitch Awards),spinning an exquisite dissociative dramedy out of the newborn fugue state -- it reeks of new parent smell.The film's a showcase for Theron and Davis' easy charms -- one of the year's true pleasures was getting the chance to explore the constant moment of total anxiety in such capable hands.You feel a little bit saner on the far side ofTully.

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sSpring Breakerspollturned out to be closer than I anticipated,given how well James Franco's "Alien"was receieved at the time,but he won it only at 54% -- indeed nobody had anything kind to say about him or his performance in the comments.So we'll share some love for the girls,viaTom G:

"I give credit to Hudgens for trying to take risks with her career post HSM.She did Broadway as well and is generally regarded as the saving grace of the live musicals she appears in on TV."

Marlo/Tully has a messy past but a bright future.

Charlize is straight-up one of the greatest screen actors of all time.Male,female,living,dead,any era,any genre,*tongue pop*.

I have never been ready for how great she is an I hope I never am.

PS the poll should be up and working now -- not sure what'd happened to it at first,sorry!

I think many of us "got"Davis from SAN JUNIPERO!

Mackenzie Davis really stood out for me in one of those terrible Zac Efron films.I am pleased she is on the up.

I voted for Tully because so much of the movie's reveal relies on Mackenzie Davis' acing the tone of that character/concept,and she truly did.Theron is brilliant,probably her strongest work since Young Adult,but Davis was walking a much higher wire.
