I’m excited for this year’s film nominees! Julie & Julia stars two awesome actresses: Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Streep also stars in It’s Complicated, which was written and directed by Nancy Meyers. Nine (while, admittedly, might potentially sexually exploit the actresses) still boasts an all-star cast of women, including Oscar winners Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, and Penelope Cruz. Kathryn Bigelow has gotten all kinds of press for directing The Hurt Locker, and, while Up in the Air gives Clooney top-billing, I have no doubt that Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick will wake up to Oscar nominations in February for their wonderful performances. And Precious! What a great year for the many women involved with this film. Kudos to the Golden Globes for recognizing so many women in film this year!
