Julianne Moore in Bus Stop

No Julianne isn't remaking the classic Marilyn Monroe flick. She's just staring at me provocatively from every bus stop and newstand in Midtown.


Now, I like seeing Julie everywhere I go, but do you think she had it in her contract to avoid bus stops and newsstand and streetcars within a mile radius of her own apartment. Because how weird would that be to see yourself on every corner?

I love how even missing an Oscar nomination has brought us this bizarre Julianne Moore renaissance. She's certainly made it through the post-2002 wilderness. Fashion profiles, Tom Ford, Sundance, advertisements, photoshoots...keep it coming!

Suggested FiLM BiTCH category: Best Comeback/Return to Form.

Although comebacks are so precious and fleeting that you might not want to start jinxing them...

I think Savage Grace marked Moore's return to form much more than A Single Man did. Not that she was bad in the Man.

Savage Grace would've been a comeback if it'd had the loyal devotees like Tilda Swinton does for Julia. But for a little-seen film that went through distribution hell I don't think she got much more than soft applause. Overall, Blindness' crappy reaction made her break even in 2008.

Savage Grace was a step in the right direction, but not the kind of thing that put her on red carpets and made obsessive fans like me scream SHE'S BACK! It was more of a "She's back?"

James T said...

I agree. I wasn't talking about return to belovedness but pure acting form.

either way... SHE'S BACK! ;)

Does anyone else find that photo a little...off?

I'm watching her on Inside the Actors' Studio. She says her three most formative acting moments were Uncle Vanya with Andre Gregory, [safe], and Short Cuts. That's a pretty good snapshot of the kinds of roles she's always taken, minus the 50's housewife fetish.

Man it's kind of sad that she won't walk the red carpet on Sunday as a nominee. It's been seven years now since her last nomination. Think of that her 4 nominations came within 6 years! It's really been too long of a break.

Will she ever get another nomination? Will she ever get the win?

@Hayden: IMO, the bad reception of Blindness was really not fair. Powerful film, absolutely underrated, and at least Moore's performance should have got some attention. She didn't get anything for it, not a single nomination, and she was really superb. Her best performance since Far From Heaven.

Anyway, it's really a relief that she's out of those Freedomland/Trust the Man days.

Incidentally, I finally caught A Single Man a couple of hours ago, and I was even more impressed by Moore's performance (as well as Goode's, who I've never noticed before) than Firth's. But Nathaniel, no FB nomination? What gives?
