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

LAFCA Winners (and other critics organizations)

The Los Angeles Film Critics Organization is presumably the most crucial in terms of Academy Awards influence since they're the hometown critics of Hollywood and the industry actually hears what they think on a regular basis.This year,like virtually every organization,they threw their weight behind Alfonso Cuarón's Mexican memoir dramaRoma.They got idiosyncratic (but smart) in only one category this year,Supporting actor,where they honored Steven Yeun who is remarkable in Burning.Otherwise they underlined actors who are already in the thick of the Oscar discussion.Sadly,two women who really needed their endorsement (Toni Collette and Elizabeth Debicki) were left in "runner up"position,a nice nod in their direction,but not helpful to their causes.

After exorcising (not to mention playing chess with,and later playing) the devil,portraying a host of priests,popes,cardinals,and apostles,directors and professors,living-breathing ciphers,and the occasional everyman,von Sydow will be awarded the Career Achievement prize this year from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association...
