Supporting Actress: My Ballot & Yours

"Carrie Coon who in her screen debut steals Gone Girl from the much bigger names. Also can we just talk about how between Nora Durst and Margo Dunne that no one has as impressive a breakout in 2014 then Coon. " - Eion Daly

"Agata Kulesza blew my MIND in "Ida," so she easily gets my top ballot." - Lawson

"Keira Knightley. She just seemed like that rare person who can make you want to be better. So endearing, charming and she also has moments where she shows that she knows more about the world. A silent revolutionary." - MCV

YOURS? And what'cha think of mine?

My Fair Linky

The Poison Pen on the shifting gaze of cinema, objectifying men and, specifically, Gene Kelly's ass
Stale Popcorn Nicole Kidman goes totally 'My Fair Lady' for the races in Australia
The Advocate another gay role for Benedict Cumberbatch. He'll play the "fifth Beatle"  Brian Epstein in a new biopic
Movie City News David Poland talks to Sally Field for Lincoln 

Vulture considers the Looper effect. New time travel films are coming, one from Leonardo DiCaprio's company
Movie|Line talks to the LEOgend. She's in everything lately including Flight
/Film Paul Thomas Anderson screens 20 extra minutes of The Master, to be included on the DVD release 
Guardian Skyfall is breaking records well before its US box office debut 
Empire a look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin in Iron Man 3 
Cinema Blend Maggie Smith's recent health scare was, very thankfully, much exaggerated by rumors. But there's still no word on whether she'll return to Downton Abbey for a fourth season.

Finally, have you seen Elizabeth Olsen on the set of Oldboy? She's giving you Maggie Gyllenhaal realness.

Right? I also love that she's standing by a Catering and Extras sign. As if.

2nd time gay for Benedict? What was his first?

I cant still quite get over his villian in Atonement. He was despicable in that that I am still quite repulsed by him.

Elizabeth Olsen is ready for that Octomom biopic.

I want to hear Nicole shriek: "Dover, move your bloomin' asssss!!!"

to murtada:

He was really creepy in Atonement. I like the bloody war scenes in that film but I’m so scared of him that I don’t want to see that film again. I couldn’t believe he was the same actor playing William Pitt in Amazing Grace. He was so good in it!!!

He’s a really chameleonic actor and I thought he’d be a great character actor but not a leading man (because he isn’t the typical handsome man). I’m glad someone with his talent is gaining so much popularity. He really deserves it.

His other gay role was in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He was a good guy in it.

Hey Nathaniel,

This is Angelica Jade from The Poison Pen. Thanks soooooo much for featuring me in your links, I really appreciate it! It truly put a smile on my face that you liked my post enough to mention it especially since I have been a fan of your writing for a while :)

- - Nicole is flawless, no one else came close to looking as fabulous as her

- - I have always thought Elizabeth Olsen looks and sounds like Maggie Gyllenhaal's young sister. Someone cast them as sisters quick!

Gene Kelly's ass is still a thing of majesty all these years later. Sigh. Those costume designers knew what was up!

Will never get over the renaming of Melissa Leo as LEOgend. I seriously crack my shit up whenever I read it because I always imagine it said as exaggerated as it reads.

This Skyfall buzz is practically fever pitch now, I love it. Dying to see it this weekend.

Thank the heavens for that Maggie Smith news/update/calming of everyone's tits.

Dead @ Maggie Gyllenhaal realness. SO true.

brookesboy -- don't we all!

Thankfully, she seems a bit more ambitious than Maggie, who seems to go into hiding a lot.

Elizabeth Olson looks like she's doing a biopic of Angelina Jolie!
