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

Smackdown 2018: Amy,Emma,Rachel,Marina,"and..."Regina King

Presenting Oscar's Chosen 'Supporting' Actresses of the Films of 2018.

Two warring ladies of the royal court,two desperate mothers,and an amoral ambitious politician's wife.That's the 'supporting' actress roll call for the 91st Oscars,亚博主页though two of the characters are leading ladies.Still,we're here to talk performances,first and foremost.Who wowed us,whose take on their characters left us wanting,and are these actresses making the most of what's in their screenplays?[Sad Disclaimer: Unfortunately since we did not receive screeners this season (moving/address problems) we were unable to do the normal screentime count portion of the Smackdown though we're just as curious as you surely are about how the screentime inThe Favouriteactually measures up from actress-to-actress.We won't trust any report till we do our own because we've heard conflicting statements,so we will eventually do the count.]


Here to talk about these five nominated turns are actressGinny O'Keefe,bloggerRobin Write(Filmotomy),two senior Film Experience contributorsMurtada Elfadl,Chris Feil,and your hostNathaniel R.The final collective panelist is the Readers (hey,that means you!!!) who took the time to send us their votes.Okay,let's go!

Beauty vs Beast: Who's the Boss

Happy Monday,Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"poll -- this week we're tackling the two Oscar-moninated performances at the heart of my favorite film of 2018,Alfonso Cuarón'sROMA.Yalitza Aparicio is Cleo,whose pregnancy via local ne'er-do-well charts the course of the film;Marina de Tavira plays Senora Sofia,Cleo's boss whose own relationship is faltering.Two women ghosted,but which is your tops?

PREVIOUSLYRachel Weisz won a BAFTA yesterday forThe Favouritebut even more importantly today she officially wonlast week'sDisobediencepollagainst her fellow Rachel,McAdams -- might as well toss that BAFTA in the trash,Rach!SaidDavid S:

"Rachel her forever,and I never foresaw her career picking up now instead of ten years ago.I love how proud she is of the love scene,which is one of the best and most specific I've ever seen.I would nominate her for Best Actress and Best Supporting this year,if I had the power!The performance even improves on the second viewing.So does McAdams's.It's all just very subtle...I noticed on Letterboxd that almost no one I follow actually saw this.I hope it gets more viewers over time."

Who will win Supporting Actress?Who should win?

2018 may well go down in history as the most volatile supporting actress race since 2007 (wherein four different women won the 5 televised prizes: Globes,Critics Choice,SAG,BAFTA,and Oscar).If you'll recall that historic year,those five prizes went,in order,to Cate Blanchett (I'm Not There),Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone),Ruby Dee (American Gangster),and the final two went to Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton).The only Oscar nominee that year thatdidn'twin a televised prize was little Saoirse Ronan (Atonement).Saoirse even lost the "Young Actress"prize at Critics Choice but she got the last laugh,already being considered a Great by her early twenties with two more nominations since then and momentum for a win should the right role come along and she's still just 24 years old...
