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

by Eric Blume

Foreign Watch: Two Oscar Favorites Join the Fray

We've been faithfully updating the Oscar charts daily to reflect the submissions inone of our favorite categories.We'd call it our favorite but then how would Cinematography,Production Design,both Actress categories,and Costume Design feel?The deadline for submission is just a few days away so in a week or two the Academy will make the list official.Generally speaking,there are one or two surprises from our charts once they do -- a sudden addition or replacement and maybe a single disqualification.But if this list holds we are just short of the all time record number.The are currently 82 submissions,which is one shy of the record from 2014 (theIdayear).

Among the newly announced films areAfter Image,a biopic of an avant garde artist, by Andrzej Wajda for Poland andThe Idol,the true story of a man who competed on "Arab Idol," from Hany Abu-Assad of Palestine.Oscar loves these two directors so they're surely threats for the finalist list.Poland has submitted films by Honorary Oscar winner Andrzej Wajda a total of nine times in their history and four of those were nominated:The Promised Landin 1975,The Maids of Wilcoin 1979,Man of Ironin 1981,andKatynin 2007.Meanwhile both of Palestine's nominations in the Best Foreign Language Film category come from Hany Abu-Assad:Paradise Nowin 2005 andOmarin 2013.Can these men work their Oscar-hooking magic again?

Updates to the charts (part 1,part 2,part 3) also include new contenders from Argentina,Bangladesh,Jordan,Kazakhstan,South Africa,and Turkey.
