While I liked this movie and thought Sally’s performance was a good one, at the time, I didn’t think ‘oh this is an Oscar worthy performance’ I just thought it good. So for me, she is not the winner here ..more like an honorable mention I guess. sorry..
As you know I did love this movie and usually love Jennifer more.. Oh don’t doubt me that she wasn’t good, as she was and yeah..the nomination is deserved but maybe it’s the fact that in comparison to some of the others, there wasn’t as much screen time. Yes, I know Judi Dench won for like 10 min onscreen once..but here I don’t it think it should be. Will she win? most likely and I won’t be upset over it.
Yeah I know, everyone loves her and I think she’s been standout in all the fashion leading up to this night to and will probably boggle us with another beautiful dress etc.. And hands down, it was a good performance, but again, same complaint as I have with the movie..choppy..another ‘would not be upset’ though.. 🙂
While I really didn’t like this movie as I felt I’ve seen it before a few too many times, one of the 1st things I said when leaving was..Julia was really good. Both her & Julianne Nicholson held their own against a always strong Meryl Streep, and that is nothing to take lightly..it’s not an easy feat even if you are a REALLY good actress.. She’s my runner-up…
Why is Julia Roberts my runner-up you ask.. because yep.. I am being the sucker here and going for the senior club.. June Squibb was simply put..wonderful in this role. She’s been acting almost all her life, we’ve never known who she was really..then BOOM at 84 years old..YES I SAID EIGHTY FOUR YEARS OLD – she comes out an wows us with a funny, sarcastic, over the top crochety old persons performance that is sure to never be forgotten. That is why she is my pick..
Till tomorrow all when I roll onto Best Director… until then…#peggyatthemovies
