Who is the actress in the lower left-hand corner of the photo montage?

StinkyLulu said...

Seema Biswas in Water


thank you for hosting this. I'm amazed at the number of women cited and it's so cool that it's not just the usual suspects. if only awards season would show as much film-loving variety

Nick Davis said...

I agree! The variety is delicious, and the write-ups have been great fun to read. I hope there are even more coming!

StinkyLulu said...

I'm only aware of one (for sure) that's still on it's way. Other than that, we can just keep our fingers crossed...

But the range? Exactly what I hoped for... It's like Xmas all over again!

Ash said...

i agree thrice- what a great bunch of choices-and what a delicious idea Stinky! props to you!

Craig Hickman said...

Thanks for hosting this, StinkyLulu. I feel like a part of something fabulous, and who doesn't love that feeling?!!!

J.D. Judge said...

This really is a good idea. Thanks for hosting it. Kudos.

SamuraiFrog said...

I love that no two people picked the same person. Great stuff!

Kamikaze Camel said...

Yeah, I'm shocked that there's so much diversity.

Well done StinkyLu! You deserve big props!


it's also nice that half of the frontrunners are absent. nice to hear about other performances in such a good year for acting.

JS said...

Darn, I would have liked to have written about Phyllis Somerville in "Little Children." :(

Otherwise another great feature. I like getting convinced to watch even more movies (Nick & Nathaniel's being most convincing in the "why couldn't I see it that way?" sense).

StinkyLulu said...

Back atcha y'all on the "props" point. It's been a totally awesome "if you build it..." kinda thing. And given that I didn't ask folks to "claim" who they were writing about, I'm frankly shocked that we didn't develop a few "piles" on particular perfs. (Indeed, my big gay fear was that it'd be all about Blunt & JHud, with one or two others.)

And, to JS and others, I'm still accepting posts... So if the actressexual spirit so moves ya...

criticlasm said...

I did email Stephen Holden and let him know about it, so who knows.....?

JS said...

Thanks! I'll get right on it. :)

Kamikaze Camel said...

Holy crap! I just watched Water. Seema Biswas! Yowza.

StinkyLulu said...

I know, kamikaze, I know.

Biswas and Epps are -- I think -- my favorite performances of the year.
