The constant gardener

Rachel Weisz looks good, she smiles well, brings life into the character, shows off her heavily pregnant body quite well..

.. but she won an oscar for that!?!?! sheesh.

    this wasnt for a leading role but a supporting role.. for a supporting role, she got waaaaaay too much screen presence in the movie.. maybe they gave it to her because of that..:p
    anyway the other nominations were weak as well.. havent seen junebug though.

    i like rachel weisz more in the mummy series..specially mummy 2 :)
    phreaky is screen presence an important criteria? nicole kidman won her best actress oscar for The hours where her role had just 30 minutes of screen presence :)
    its probably becoz its a brit movie...check out BAFTA...they nominated both ralph fiennes and rachel weisz for leading actor and leading actress prize :)and heres the twist to the story..nicole kidman didnt even get a nomination in BAFTA...ooooh bloody politics :)

    @gullu.. well.. ofcourse its not, i was joking.. :-) but think abt it, you have a bunch of average performances and you need to eliminate quite a few and make everyone happy abt your choice.. but am kinda stuck on my screen presence idea.. see morgon freeman got it for "the aviator" last year over "alan alda" ( do you remember this guy? the senator brewster or sth? ).. he was soooo brilliant, but morgan freeman got it for a rather mediocre role due to sympathy and screen presence. i still think supporting actor role is driven somewhat by screen presence (maybe when you are in a hurry to go to the bathroom and have to make ur choice.. looks like thats the way things go since crash got the best picture).

    jedi - yes

    gullu - hmm.. dunno abt mummy 2 but she was def very charming in mummy 1.

    i think nicole kidman won it coz u know.. she's nicole kidman.. how can u have her act in a movie where she's changed her look (she wears a false nose) and portrays the celebrated virginia woolf.. i mean how could they NOT give her an oscar! :p

    phreak - maybe when you are in a hurry to go to the bathroom and have to make ur choice.. looks like thats the way things go since crash got the best picture hahahaaaa.. perfect!
