"Big performances and big personalities tend to have the edge. It so happens that all the acting categories this year have one or both of them. In supporting actress specifically, Janney has a bigger performance and a bigger real life personality." - Joseph

"Are you all OK with the Del Toro sweep? He would be my 4th choice." - Peggy Sue

"Poor Timothée!😔 Al least he has a chance to win the Spirit Award 🙏🏻 Or is Kaluuya going to upset?!" -Amirfarhang

Curio: Heather Theurer's Disney heroines

Alexa here with your weekly art post.  This past weekend was another big win for Disney; clearly the public at large did not have the same trouble talking the family into seeing Maleficient as I did (my daughter didn't want to see that movie about the "scary fairy").  From the trailer I was entranced by the look of it, but I'll have to wait. Reading about the painterly, Pre-Raphaelite stylings of the film reminded me of Heather Theurer. Theurer is a painter who has done a series of oils of Disney heroines, transforming them with a realism akin to the Pre-Raphaelites.  

So far she has completed Cinderella, Mulan, Rapunzel, Lilo, and Merida...


I hope she has more to come. You can see more of her work on her website.

There's something about that Lilo one that makes it warm and familiar, even though I've never seen Lilo & Stitch. I also love the Mulan one. It's mesmerizing! Looks like something that could be hung up in someone's house. The Rapunzel one looks like it would in a stained glass window. .

I LOVE that Lilo & Stitch one, but the Mulan is GORGEOUS.

I have never commented on any of these kinds of post because I haven't been overwhelmed, but these are amazing. I also think that Lilo and Mulan really stand out.
