Well first thing’s first – need to wrap up our last outing with this series, debating who played the best Juliet Capulet. It ended up being a pretty landslide victory for Zefferelli’s 1968 outing with Olivia Hussey as the young lovebird. I’d have to agree with you all on this one! But on to the next big question… who played Josephine “Jo” March of Little Women/Little Men/Jo’s Boys fame best?
I’m restricting you to these (possibly) most-well-known options. Though feel free to write in more obscure or more well-liked candidates in the comments. But who played the best Jo? Get to voting on that poll over in the righthand column!
Just when I thought I was back to the blogging world for good, the realities of life set in once again. It turns out print journalism is struggling – have you heard? Thanks to the bugger of an economy journalists are out of work left and right. And since some recent unfortunate cuts happened due to that lagging economy, I find myself doing the work of more than one person of late. So forgive me while I once again find my footing! In the meantime, answer me this – who are your favorite movie-bound newspaper mavens??

Check back next week for more trailer goodness!
Well, it only took about a month and a half, but I’m finally done updating my Oscar predictions. Check the menu in the top left to take a gander at the new finished categories – Best Film Editing, the sound and music categories, and Best Animated Feature. And here’s my most recent nomination tally below:
In honor of the Tonys playing out tonight, and an inevitable trophy for set design and such for the play War Horse, I thought it the best time to do a bit of updating on my Art Direction predictions for Oscar (just scroll down below the Cinematography and Costume Design sections). And yes, War Horse has risen in the ranks. I doubt its potential in acting and writing, but art direction seems like a sure thing. Check out the picks, and let me know what you think, readers!
Them’s slim pickings this week. I’m a little surprised, actually – with Super 8 coming out and all – that there weren’t more new trailers, but alas, we’re left with these three amongst semi-major releases. I’m particularly excited for Pariah, which I see as a dark horse Oscar contender.
The visual category updates continue. Check out the corresponding page, below Best Cinematography, and let me know your thoughts on the costume race. Is it a Powell/Beavan/Atwood race again this year, or will The Help, Jane Eyre and The Artist manage spots?
Thought it’s been quite a long time since our last “Who Played it Best?” I thought I’d mention our Dracula competition left the quintessential count as Bela Lugosi from the 1931 classic.
But now on to the latest competition. Which one of these ladies played the hopelessly in love Juliet best? Norma Shearer, Susan Shentall, Natalie Wood, Olivia Hussey, Claire Danes or Emily Blunt? Chime in on the poll in the comments!
