[9 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[7 DAYS TO OSCARS] With as good a film that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two” is, it deserved much more than just the three nominations it received this year at the Oscars.

[19 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[15 DAYS TO OSCARS] “Albert Nobbs” brings in three admirable nominations in Actress, Supporting Actress, and Makeup, all of which are high caliber.

2012 Oscars Challenge: [22] The Iron Lady & 2 nominations

[24 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[20 DAYS TO OSCARS] Meryl Streep is by far a frontrunner in this year’s Oscar race, but not because the film she is in is an utter success, but because Meryl Streep is who she is.

2010 Oscars Challenge: Il Divo

IL DIVO Up For: Best Achievement in Makeup Il Divo proved to be a very odd film. The makeup nomination, from my analysis must come from the formation of the main character, Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti. A small, hunched-back, droopy eared man is the basis of this Italian political film. Not sure it quite compares with the complexity and sheer abundance of makeup … Read More 2010 Oscars Challenge: Il Divo

2010 Oscars Challenge: The Young Victoria

THE YOUNG VICTORIA Up For: Best Achievement in Art Direction Best Achievement in Costume Design Best Achievement in Makeup Overall, fantastic film. Emily Blunt is exquisite.
