COMMENT DU JOUR
HONORARY OSCARS GO TO...

 "...and will these three great artists appear on the actual Oscars show?" - Rick G.

"To dig up some tabloid history (not that it was buried deep) for a footnote, Reynolds' "love rival" Elizabeth Taylor won the same humanitarian award in 1993. It sort of goes to show that everybody got theirs in that situation, except for Eddie Fisher." - Hayden W.

"Congrats to these three! They are all deserving of this honor but I STILL can't believe the Academy has pass up Doris Day AGAIN!" - Anthony

Curio: Happy 81st Clint 

Alexa here.  Clint Eastwood turns 81 today, and while last year was a big birthday, once you hit 80 every year deserves to be commemorated, right? Personally, I can't wait until December to see his J. Edgar with Leo in the title role. In the meantime, here are some indie poster designs celebrating a few of Clint's classics.

You know you're waiting for Beyonce to play Esther Blodgett -- having Clint direct her to another Hilary Swank level upset against____________!

/3rtfull -- bite your tongue!

I don't even love clint eastwood but these posters are choice. especially the lead profile/gun number.

Hmm. Not really a hyper fan of Clint as a performer either, even though he's appeared in some very good movies. John Wayne's probably the same way.

Agree with Volvagia. Unforgiven and The Good, The Bad & The Ugly are such great westerns, probably my favorites along with Once Upon a Time in the West (and No Country for Old Men could be considered a western too I guess). But I don't know about his performances. I think he's better at directing.

He's better at directing, but, as a performer, has a lot of charisma and sometimes he was capable of twisting his persona to so really great performances. The best movie he starred in is probably The Beguiled, a masterpiece of sadism and sexuality that really deserves a remake by Almodovar.
