Introducing "The Class of 2009" - The 4th Annual Supporting Actress Blogathon - January 17, 2010

StinkyLulu's pleased to invite all aficionados of actressing at the edges to the 4th Annual Supporting Actress Blogathon, this time celebrating the "Class of 2009."
The Class of 2009
Supporting Actress Blogathon
Sunday, January 17, 2010
(the Sunday before the Oscar nomination ballots are due)

All bloggers -- no matter the usual focus of their blog -- are invited to contribute to this collaborative compendium documenting 2009's hardworking crew of Supporting Actresses. All you have to do is develop a post detailing your thoughts on any single Supporting Actress performance from 2009. Please limit yourself to one performance, performer, &/or film per blogathon post. (BUT do feel free to spread your love & develop multiple entries.) There's no need to "sign up" or "claim" a given performer/performance for the blogathon. (We'll just see how things stack up.). Finally, in addition to obvious "contender" performances, commentaries on obscure, ineligible, no-chance-in-hell &/or idiosyncratic performances are especially welcome. Like the blogathons for The Class of 2006, The Class of 2007, and The Class of 2008 this year's blogathon aims to accomplish a complex, diverse and fully-rounded portrait of the Supporting Actress Class of 2009.

Just email StinkyLulu with your plans to participate as soon as possible. Promote the blogathon on your own blog if you wish, linking to this post and using these graphics (poster, button, panel). Then, no later than the crack of dawn on the morning of January 17th, send along the link to your blog entry/ies. StinkyLulu will post links to all participating blogs throughout the day.

I'm so torn ... but glad that so many performances I subconsciously considered are featured on the poster!

I am definitely there. I don't know about others, but I feel thus far 2009 has offered a nice foray of supporting performance that [sadly] won't be seeing Oscar or any other awards by their names.

Glenn said...

Yes! Excited as always. Quite a few contenders to write about this year (and I haven't even seen the obvious ones).

Slayton said...

I'll be there :D And I've already got my choice!

Cal said...

Mulling over who to do but I'll definitely be here. I'd never miss this!

Robert said...

I'm definitely in! I'm a first timer, not sure who to do yet but I'm working on it...haha. Can't wait!

Loved reading all the past Supporting Actress blogathons. I am ecstatic to participate this year. I have not seen all but I have a few passionate choices (I'm gonna stray away from Mo'nique, my fav performance and the frontrunner, and go for some longshots like Melanie Laurent or Patricia Clarkson). I couldn't get a link to the email but I hope this comment will suffice. I cant wait!

CLNY said...

The perf I am highlighting came from a movie that was released in December 2008 over in America but only became available in my country in 2009. Is that okay?

StinkyLulu said...

@Jaded: Sure! Send it on in!

Hi Stinkylulu. I have my post for Melanie Laurent in Inglourious Basterds. I know she's campaigning for lead but I still saw it as more of a Supporting performance. My email is not working well so here is the link to my post for the supporting actress blogathon:
