..............................................................................................

Instigated by Nathaniel's obsession with all-things-Oscar, and inspired by Nick's own Best Actress Project, it seems only appropriate to join in the fun & to channel StinkyLu's innate desire to gather -- yea, to hoard -- nearly irrelevant cultural effluvia toward similar ends. (And since StinkyLulu has an abiding fondness for such folk as Mercedes McCambridge, Sylvia Miles, Eileen Heckart, Diane Ladd, Celeste Holm, Frances McDormand and Marisa Tomei -- the focus of this project seemed nearly preordained.)

So:
StinkyLulu hereby announces a new endeavor...
Supporting Actress Sunday!
(AKA "The Thelma Ritter Project")

Starting next week, each Sunday morning, StinkyLu will publish scintillating opinage upon a recently rescreened "Best Supporting Actress" nominee's performance. As this crackpot scheme hatched quite suddenly, the details (as to sequence, chronology, "rules", etc) remain a little blurry. The category's only been around since 1936 so that makes -- what -- only 300 or so nominated performances to peruse, which means StinkLu'll only be doing this for -- oh -- 6 or so years. Whatever. StinkyLulu does love lists. And projects. And Shelley Winters.

It'll be sweet, silly & (not occasionally) completely obscure.

So be sure to tune in next week, lovely reader, for the premiere installment of
StinkyLulu's Supporting Actress Sundays!(It'll prolly be thomething Thelma.)

Celeste Holm rules my world. Mercedes McCambridge is perfection. Geraldine Page cannot be stopped. And Dianne Wiest could show Renée Zellweger a thing or two about how to act while squinting.

Bring. this. on.
