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

Only one "woke"at a time

by Deborah Lipp

One of Oscar's best moments.Iranian-American engineer Anousheh Ansari accepting on behalf of protesting Asghar Farhadi

If I may use this year's vernacular,Oscars are woke.亚博主页Except,well,they can only be woke about one thing at a time.Last year after the Oscars,亚博主页Iwrote aboutthe powerful "spotlight"(see what I did there?) the Oscars brought to the issue of rape and sexual violence.亚博主页And I'm going to acknowledge,that yes,that was amazing.

But rape is so last year.

This year was all about diversity and inclusion.Those are wonderful topics,those are topics that matter to me.The diversity was beautiful to see.The powerful immigrant voices—from Iran,Mexico,and Italy,among other nations—moved me.It was important that people of color were not merely supporting characters—even though the winners were in the Supporting categories,they supportedother people of color...

Pictures from the Oscar Luncheon


The question on a lot of people's minds afterthe SAG Awardsis how political are the Oscars going to be.亚博主页If there was any doubt in anyone's mind,Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs put that to rest.Addressing those gathered for the traditional luncheon,she alluded to the banned Muslim nominees,Asghar Farhadi and others,by pointing to the empty chairs:

Today we celebrate you.Your work and your achievements,but everyone knows there are some empty chairs in this room which has made Academy artists,activists.There is a struggle globally today over artistic freedom that feels more urgent than at anytime since the 1950s.Art has no borders.Art has no language and doesn't belong to a single faith.No,the power of art is that it transcends all these things.And strong societies don't censor art.They celebrate it.

By calling the nominees "activists",Boone Isaacs is sanctioning political speeches at the ceremony which could make for an interesting show.Still the mood was not somber at the luncheon,and many nominees took the time to socialize.Isabelle Huppert and Michelle Williams caught up at the cocktail hour.Others did that even while taking their places for the annual class photo.More favorite moments after the jump.

The Oscar Week in Four Quotes and a Video


In this new weekly feature we will follow the Oscar contenders and examine how their many interviews and appearances impact their chances.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone

AsSilencecontinues to screen andHacksaw Ridgecontinues to do well with award bodies,Garfield is making the rounds including the Hollywood Reporter Roundtable.When asked which actor he'd have with him if he was stranded on a desert island,he said:

Emma Stone.I love Emma.She's all right.She can come.

This comes after Emma casually mentioned in herVogue 73 questions videothat the best gift she received was a hand-made rocking chair.Guess what Andrew told THR in that roundtable?Yes you guessed it.He learned how to make a rocking chair as part of his preparation forSilence.Oh these two and their amicable breakup.

Meanwhile Emma is everywhere.
