Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Barkhad Abdi is having a "Good Time"

byMurtada

You know who might be having a big 2017 in film?Barkhad Abdi.He has three interesting projects coming out,starting withDabkawhich will play this month at the Tribeca Film Festival.Written and directed by Bryan Buckley (The Bronze) it's the true story of a reporter's risk-taking adventure that gave him an unprecedented first-person account of the pirates of Somalia.Evan Peters plays the reporter Jay Bahadur on whose best selling book,The Pirates of Somalia: Inside Their Hidden World,the film is based.Abdi plays a local fixer who helped Bahadur embed himself with the Somali pirates.So he hasn't gone very far from the world of his Oscar nominated performance inCaptain Phillips(2013).

Which of the First-Time Nominees Will Return Soon to Oscar?

Some years ago now I did a study on how often actors win second nominations.I can't find the figures at the moment but I believe it was around 42%.Obviously it's not as many as we pretend each Oscar love-in season.Though it's arguablyeasierto win a second nomination than it is a first -- they're already considering you if you will -- that doesn't mean it'seasy,if you get me.The Oscars are definitely a pyramid in shape.亚博主页There's onlyone actorwith 18 nominations and there are hundreds of thousands with 0.I don't mean to be a bummer,just to underline how special and rare the Oscar experience is even for celebrity actors.Lineups likeBest Actressthis time,which I believe has the highest average nomination countof all timein an acting shortlist,fool us into believing otherwise but the majority of first nominations are alsolastnominations.

the first-timers this year that DIDN'T win: Chiwetel,Sally,Barkhad,Fassy,June*should we do a fashion post?

But let's stay optimistic!

Who among this year's first-time nominees do you think will be the first to be invited back?Explain your choice in the comments.I think I'm going with Sally Hawkins only because her work has been really solid for a long time and now that they've noticed her,perhaps a rush of even better roles will happen?It's not always easy to predict. I mean,who among us thought that Jonah Hill would be the first among the new men from the class of 2011 to do it?There's no wrong answer.At least not for another year or three.

If you like this poll,there are more,you know.Vote on those,too!

15 Days Til Oscar ~ Supporting Oscar Chart Fun!

Have you voted on the polls yet?I feel like you haven't voted on the polls yet.Supporting ActressandSupporting Actor,in particular,have been bereft of your attention.While you're there check out the new "how'd they get nominated?"analysis on both of those categories

Did "Katniss"help Jennifer Lawrence win a nomination for "Rosalyn"and how much did "Plunging Necklines"factor into each of theAmerican Hustlenominations? The percentages are cooked up in my very own science oven.They're 100% accurate!
