Gina Pareno for "Serbis"


Stinky you've done it again. It's such an interesting compilation of names with something for everyone.

Douglas Racso said...

finally i made it this year! last year my entry was way too late hehehe

Glenn said...

Wow. Not a single repeated performance!


actually there's three repeats: CRUZ, PORTMAN and DEVOS

but still 33 women covered. that's pretty cool. The only Oscar possibility that didn't get a mention was Kate Winslet (really a lead), Taraji P Henson (probably nominee) and Debra Winger (longshot)

Hiam Abbass also got two bids.
