Oh my God! How did you get White Banners? :D

Anyway, I'm hoping Bette wins though I haven't seen the others so this sounds stupid, I think. LOL :D

I amparticularly excited about your reviews as I don't know this performances that much. :D

I'm rooting for Norma. The last half-hour of Marie Antoinette was simply devastating.

Sage Slowdive said...

No doubt, Norma vs. Bette, with Norma probably getting the edge.

Shearer for win.But Bette and Wendy were also great.In fact,i only saw those three.

Louis Morgan said...

Davis or Shearer I suppose. I doubt it will be Hiller since I recall your comment on my review of Howard's performance in the same film was not particularly positive about the film on a whole.
