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

Finally, in much happier news...
Have you heard that Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris,Win Win) is signing projects left and right.Looks like that Tony Award for "Venus in Fur"really did it.Nina,who has previously really had bit roles in movies,has surely arrived.

She recentlysigned on to play the great Guilieta MasinainFellini Black and Whitethe story of two missing days in the life of Oscar magnet Federico Fellini right before the Oscars in 58.亚博主页Are they making this movie just for us?Seriously!She's also set to play Janis Joplin in another upcoming biowithMartha Marcy May Marlene's Sean Durkin helmingafter approximately a million years of rumors of this actress and that actress and sometimes more than one at once,playing her in a biopic.Hollywood apparently just can't letThe Rose(1979) be the last word.Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski even sent up the development hell of Janis Joplin biopics in an arc of30 Rock.Nina alsojoins a huge cast of recognizable actorsin the fascinating soundingThe Disappearance of Eleanor Rigbywhich is reportedly a two-part film told from the husband (James McAvoy) and wife's (Jessica Chastain) perspectives.

This is all a long way of saying learn Nina's name and expect her on an Oscar shortlist in 5...4...3...2....1
