BBC News the Olivier Award nominees over in London (home to an ever thriving theater culture) are like a laundry list of people we'd like to see in better movie roles and maybe during future Oscar seasons. Gillian Anderson, Jude Law (i.e. New Hamlet), James McAvoy, Rachel Weisz and Keira Knightley are the most famous ones. But there's still more enticements. Imelda Staunton, Eddie Redmayne, and remember Samuel West who was so bookishly bewitched bothered and bewildered by Helena Bonham-Carter's inner fire in Howards End) and Mark Rylance who, for a brief period was a go to guy for frequently naked dramas (Angels & Insects, Prospero's Books, Intimacy)? They're all nominated. What a group. Makes you want to book a longish trip to London and attend lots of shows.

I was lucky enough to be in London in January and caught Keira Knightley on stage in her now nominated role in The Misanthope. I've always thought she was a decent actress, but nothing amazing, but she knocked the socks off me in this play. She was incredible, to the extent that if she pulled off a performance of this maginitude on film I think theres an Oscar in her sights!

I saw Gillian Anderson in "A Doll's House" in London last summer and she was excellent!!! I was blown away with her performance! I hope she wins the Olivier award and why not even an Oscar soon if she finds the perfect role!

I can't be the only one who heard that there will be a DJ at the Oscars! Joel Madden from Good Charlotte!

Love the formal training link - fascinating piece...

What's your crystal ball say about The Tourist Nathaniel?

I wouldn't really be that interested but I am curious as to how The Lives of Others director can follow up his splendid debut.

Can somebody explain to me why Nicole would mess with that face? The face that brought her success, fame and oscar?

Love her, but silly woman.

You neglected to mention Juliet Stevenson, who is so talented-- and so-o underrated.

Also, isn't it weird how awards, Olivier included, expand/contract the number shortlisted? Seems random to have 6 Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress nominees, then just 4 Best Supporting Actor ones. (Or were there just 4 such total on the London stage this season? *snort*)

Cluster -- I TOTALLY MEANT TO. oopsie. I love her in Truly Madly Deeply so so so much. Oscar nom worthy.

Derreck said...

I refuse to believe that Kathryn Bigelow is 58. 58 has NEVER looked that good.

Michael said...

Nono...

There usually is a DJ at the Oscars but you never see them. They are just there to play music during the commercial breaks.

For the first time ever the Olivier Awards will be streamed online from their official site on the 21st March. Not that i'd expect their servers to hold out for long!

Magicub said...

I want to believe that 58 looks like Kathryn Bigelow, Instead of the way James BCameron looks 55
