For Your Consideration 2015: The Martian

Of the many breakthrough stars this year, Jessica Chastain has to be my favorite actress of them all. Present in both “The Help” and “The Tree of Life”, Chastain is also up for consideration in “The Debt”. Though I do not doubt the quality of “The Debt”, I do not see many nominations coming out of this film come awards season. I really do … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “The Debt”
