Oh! This is an interesting year! I like Paltrow a lot, but my choice is definitely Blanchett. I've yet to see "Centro do Brasil" but I neeeeed to.

Sage Slowdive said...

I agree! Another interesting year.

Well, I think I remember you telling me Blanchett was your pick, so maybe she still is.

Fritz said...

Well, now I have seen them all, so who knows... :-)

I'll be on a short trip until Sunday so the dear nominated ladies will have to wait a little until I decide their fate! (insert evil laugh here)

Blanchett for the win!

I think Blanchett will be the winner.

But I'm hoping it's either Paltrow or Streep.

Blanchett was superbly better than her film. Paltrow was flawless, like her film. Streep bettered her film.

Haven't seen the other two. DO you have a link for two.

Central Station is on youtube. I saw Hilary%Jackie one on the DVD of a friend, so I have no link for this one.

Malcolm said...

I'll take a look at it. Thanks!

A very interesting year!!!
Paltrow was such a delight-I stayed through two showings when I first saw the movie. And as a movie it is one of those I can watch over and over and over.
She would be my pick-and I've seen all the performances--with Cate & Montenegro right behind
