2020 Oscars Challenge: [20] “Bombshell” — Three Nominations

At this point in the season, it would take a lot for anyone to usurp the front-runner Renée Zellweger. If anyone is, it seems more likely that it will be Scarlett Johansson. The experts place Charlize Theron as the next in line, but at that point, it will likely be a toss up anyway.

Movie Review: Young Adult (2011)

YOUNG ADULT BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMARCH 25, 2012 “Young Adult” and all its unrelenting qualities are not Jason Reitman’s nor Diablo Cody’s best work.
