Anne Hathaway - We loved you as a princess, we loved you in Prada and this year in Rachel Getting Married you fearlessly stepped into the shoes of someone struggling with addiction and grief. I think you’re an amazing example for every young actress in the business because you are not afraid to show both your dark and your bright side. This is your first nomination, I have a feeling there will be many more after this and by the way I think you have an extraordinary voice, so keep singing too!
Remember when Anne was nominated for an Oscar? :)
and now she has won. I can’t handle this right now.
Directors Martin Scorsese and James Cameron have different ideas about the use of CGI in film:
“My big concern is that the image, ultimately, with CGI, I don’t know if our younger generation is believing anything anymore on screen. It’s not real.” - Martin Scorsese
“When was it ever real? There was kind of a wall there and nothing over there. There are 30 people standing around. There’s a guy with a boom mic, there’s another guy up on a ladder with his ass crack hanging out. There’s fake rain. Your ‘street, night exterior New York’ was a ‘day, interior Burbank’. What was ever real?” - James Cameron
She was a blonde-haired, blue-eyed stunner, so much so that Marilyn Monroe mounted a failed campaign to have Lange’s hair dyed brown for her co-starring role in Bus Stop, lest the audience get distracted by a competing beauty. She falls into the “phenomenally pretty” category: no matter what she was wearing or how she wore her hair, the bright-eyed blonde got better looking as the years passed. There was a demure, troubled quality to Lange’s reserved screen presence, making her an ideal choice as the ill-fated Selena Cross in Peyton Place, the 1954 melodrama that supposedly blew the lid off of middle-class, WASP America. That quiet, mysterious demeanor earned the very young actress both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. Regrettably, no one else capitalized on Lange’s brooding sexiness, and she wound up with mostly forgettable, wholesome roles, finally settling in television with the popular series “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.” By the way, that’s Lange as Charles Bronson’s wife in Death Wish and as Laura Dern’s mother in Blue Velvet.
