Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

10 Things I Link About You

Deal Central Anne Hathaway will star in a modernized version of Taming of the Shrew. Good luck besting braying fab Elizabeth Taylor, Anne. 
Movie|Line Michael Haneke is actually aware of that lolz twitter account in his name. Too cool or perhaps too Haneke to care.
AV Club Mike D'Angelo on the art of compression in Moonrise Kingdom (the letter sequence is my personal favorite in the film)

Vulture attends a slew of parties and eavesdrop on Jennifer Lawrence (who loves Kara Hayward from Moonrise Kingdom) and Damian Lewis who does it gangnam style... no really.
Pajiba on new television series in the works including a Heathers adaptation and a new drama from... Cher (!)
A Blogwork Orange on the director blame game regarding Oscar snubs
Movies on Demand has a ton of  nominees for your instant renting perusal. I almost didn't link to this because their press release was so condescending. Why yes, Movies on Demand, I do actually know just how Quvenzhane Wallis made history this week. Duh!

Stale Popcorn Glenn appreciates a gorgeous raven-haired threeshot of Lucy Liu, Marion Cotillard, and Salma Hayek. And the Globes surrounding it.

So glad to hear someone else point out that it wasn't necessarily Zeitlin and Haneke who took the spots of Affleck and Bigelow. I saw faaaaaar more people predicting Haneke than David O. Russell. Maybe Haneke was the clear #3 (or even higher).

It's pretty sad to see people blaming the little guys (in terms of their films' U.S. exposure).

Best part about the Vulture piece: Imagining myself as the horse to Damien Lewis' Psy.
Secret part about the Vulture piece: Jennifer Lawrence talking about a future role and realizing that her Oscar is imminent you guys!

Jane Fonda' 's new dream is to work with David O. Russell. Funny, this has immediately become my new dream as well!

The word 'snub' has started to really bother me lately, when they nominate I am sure the Academy actively votes for someone and not against. That academy members actively voted against Affleck or Bigelow is not really what happened. Same with any other 'snub'.

Jane Fonda is such a nice lady. And a brilliant actress. Somebody give her a movie, now!

Wow JFOND preferrs Sally Field over Anne Hathaway thank goodness somebody else saw past the no doubt fanntastic I dreamed a dream scene and saw that the rest of the performance is self concious and lacking in depth.

I never thought that Zeitlin and Haneke were the last placers, to be honest. For them to get in without the other nominations, they clearly had a lot of support and #1 votes. David O'Russel probably did too, as SLP was clearly beloved if Jacki Weaver was nominated. The other categories were expected, and even the director nomination was a bit surprising although not totally left field, but Jacki Weaver's nomination solidified the LOVE and support for the film.

I honestly think the last two spots would be Lee and Spielberg. They still got #1 votes, but probably not as many since they were expected to be nominated. That's likely why Bigelow and Affleck got left out, because they didn't get as many #1 and possibly a few less votes because people figured they were wasting votes on frontrunners, and wanted to try and nominate their absolute favs. Little did they know, the academy would actually be a bit different this year and more voters than usual were rallying behind the acclaimed underdogs.

I'm not upset that Haneke and Zeitlin got nominated. I haven't even seen their movies. I'm upset that Russell, whose movie I did see and who I admire, got nominated over the much deserving Kathryn Bigelow. Affleck did a great job with Argo, but I wasn't as enamored of his work as many others.

Regarding Jane, God, I love this woman! I think it's ironic how much she loved Jodie's speech. Ms. Fonda should have gotten the Cecil B. DeMille Award this year.
