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?

Hey, what are you getting me for my birthday?

yours truly

I'm just saying. It's this Friday so you don't have much time!

I suggest a donation to the site (see side bar) or, better yet, a subscription. There are three options on the pull down. But if we only had 300 more subscribers at the price of a cup of coffee a month things would be easier to manage.

My contributions are meaningless to you. I'm the Glenn Close to your average Academy voter.

Nathaniel, would you consider making your Amazon wishlist public?

June 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMarek

Nathan, you got a donation coming as soon as I bounce back from my recent move. This site is essential reading.

June 3, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

sorry man, I can't give you anything but my most sincere BEST WISHES. next year maybe.

You look super thin and moisturized already! That routine is working.

June 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

I promise, the minute I have a steady job I will start donating regularly. I spend more time on your site than I feel right doing for free.

Happy birthday! I sent you a small donation, but I also wanted to send along a thanks for all that you do. I'm a longtime reader, and your blog is wonderful!

June 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

I co-sign what Liz says!

I just want to say this site has the most respectful posters on the planet. How many times do you go to message boards and people are downright mean and hurtful or criticize grammar/spelling...

None of that here ! I'm feeling the love.

I am a near 14 year reader, and this is a terrific site. I am happy to donate today--- early birthday wishes, Nathaniel!

June 4, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDanny Hall

Nat, I was already donating a monthly amount but then I got an email saying you suspended my payments. Do you know what that's about?

June 4, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

I do not. let me look into it.

I asked Ms. Kidman to sing to you ala Madonna on SNL doing her Madonna thang.

June 4, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

Nat, you look so hot! XD
Love both you and your blog!
Happy Birthday!!

June 5, 2014 | Unregistered Commentersolomon

Long time reader, first time poster. I have been reading the blog daily and I feel like I should contribute. Happy Birthday and keep blogging!

solomon - it's an optical illusion. that picture is like 9 months old and somehow i gained a million lbs since then. hence my sudden workout plans - i have been to the gym 3 times this week. go, me.

mrpckles - thank you!
