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

4 days until Oscars.亚博主页More trivia fun.

Four is today's magic number so let's share some Oscar trivia.

Makeup prosthetics for Christian Bale as Dick Cheney (photo fromAida Dombrinstagram)

Why yes,we're so glad you asked.In addition to thepreviously discussed costume designer Sandy Powell(The Favouritemight make it four for that genius),Makeup artistGreg Cannom,who previously won Oscars for亚博主页The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,Mrs DoubtfireandBram Stoker's Dracula,might well win his fourth for giving Christian Bale that realistic looking Cheney bald cap and thick neck inVice.If Cannom winshe becomes the second most awarded makeup artist of all time (after category king Rick Baker -- who appears to have retired?-- who took the Oscar an incredible 7 times).Now,technically,Cannom is already the second most awarded makeup artist but he's currently holding that honor in a tie with another three time winner Ve Neill (she won for BeetlejuiceandEd Wood,as well asMrs Doubtfirealongside Cannom).Interestingly enough both Cannom and Ve Neill each won Makeup Guild awards this past weekend forViceandA Star is Bornrespectively.

Katharine Hepburnis the only person to ever win 4 acting Oscars...亚博主页

Christmas at TFE: The Lion In Winter

Members of Team Experience have been asked to share their favorite holiday film.Here'sDancin' Danwith his...

AH,Christmas!That special time of year when family gathers around the tree to shower each other with love,presents,and good tidings...and backstabbing,long-held resentments,and petty grievances!Which is exactly whyThe Lion in Winteris my kind of Christmas movie.

Of course families love each other.That goes without saying.But no family is perfect.For many people (I'm tempted to say everyone,but you never know!),going home for the holidays is a prospect that inspires fear and dread.You may only see these people once or twice a year,and there's only so long that certain things can go unsaid...

Doc Corner: 'Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood'

Amy Winehouse died seven years ago today and several years removed from its Oscar win and box office success,Asif Kapadia'sAmylingers in the public consciousness.A popular work of non-fiction due to its remarkable access to the story of a spiralling genius.For me,however,Amyremains a personal bug bear;an unethical and cruel work of documentary filmmaking that uses the words of its dead subject against her.

It was purely coincidental then that I thought aboutAmywhile watching Matt Tyrnauer'sScotty and the Secret History of Hollywood.The two films definitely do not share the same world,but this revealing piece of Inside Hollywood muckraking does raise questions about ethics all its own.I admit I got a bit of a salacious thrill out of it,but that doesn't stop me questioning whether I ought to have.

The Furniture: Matte Paintings at the End of an Era

"The Furniture,"byDaniel Walber,is our weekly series on Production Design.You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Over the course of the past year,I've done an informal retrospective series on the Best Production Design nominees of 1967.It isn't an especially "New Hollywood"lineup,despite being the year of "Pictures at a Revolution."Four of the nominees are lush period pieces,three of them lengthy musicals.They often feel like extravagantly-designed chaos,whirlwinds of sets and props that spin out of control.This is true of boththe hilarious brawls ofThe Taming of the Shrewandthe dated,stereotype-laden adventures ofThoroughly Modern Millie.Camelot,the winner,manages to split the difference between Old Hollywood excess and New Hollywood sexuality.

The final two films,both Best Picture nominees,are a bit less of a thrill.Guess Who's Coming to DinnerandDoctor Dolittleare,respectively,the most realistic and most fantastical of the five nominees.However,despite their differences,they both underline the inadequate end-point of old-school studio design.

You Need Serious Hair!

Kyleback in the house to address a very serious topic:Hair.Caution:Joyhairdo spoilers ahead.

The extent to which certain moments of David O.Russell'sJoyare deliberately soap opera-y is an open question.The movie's latter scenes,in particular,draw on clichéd images of toughness: pleather jacket,sunglasses,and,of course,newly shorned hair.It seems that nothing says a woman is serious quite like taking matters,i.e.,her hair,into her own hands.

I'll happily debate the merits of having a narrative arc reveal a woman to be a badass—since most already are in my book—but I'd rather hear what some of your favorite DIY hair-cutting scenes are.Here are three of the most dramatic that leap to my mindafter the jump...
