Catherine Zeta-Jones has your Oscar on her mantle. Though it isn't collecting dust because she's a crazy person who'll make sure everything in her space is clean.

So I have no idea if this is the appropriate place, but I just figured TFE readers might like to know that the blu ray of Before Midnight is currently $6.99 on Amazon. Get 'em while they're hot!

It's interesting only one actress ever has won in her 50's (Shirley Booth at 54) but five actresses (Hepburn 2x) have won in their 60's.
There's still a chance, Julianne. 8)

3rtful: Um...are you ACTUALLY suggesting she should have won for The Hours and not Far From Heaven? Really? Whatever bizarre conception of Oscar robbery floats your boat, dude.

Both of Moore's Supp. Actress bids are win worthy. The first mistake of Best Actress in the first decade of the 2000's was a second Oscar for Hilary Swank.

Hi,Nat,i know your love for Moore,but this is 1 performance you have never really dicussed,what were the reasons she wasn't nominated,i love her in it and would place her 2nd behind Monique that year,you are The God Of Moore tell me more..

Love her in her brief turn in A Single Man, she almost had another nomination for that film.

I loved Julianne in this and was very disappointed when she wasn't nominated. If it weren't for Mo'Nique, she would have been my pick for BSA of the year.

God, that laugh. Remember her laugh in the film? So scary and sad and cringe-inducing and pathetic. That alone should've gotten her the nom, especially above Gyllenhaal (who I usually like but not so much in Crazy Heart).

I know i was assured Moore would get the nom with Firth in the race.

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermark

my guess is that there was just too little of her in the movie and with the great actresses (other than Streep) after a while they take them for granted and unless something surprises them, they just start ignoring.

She's not a bad actress. But I'm being to think she's a divisive one.

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Blame Harvey.

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCinesnatch

I wouldn't have minded a nom for her in this role. Then again I LOVED that film and wish it had gotten more than just a Best Actor nod.
