“The New York Times” Captures 2009’s Oscar-Worthy Performers
February 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
Are you a lover of photography, black-and-white and color? Are you a lover of movies? Really, really a lover … as in you know who Gabourey Sidibe is, are aware that ex-spouses Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron are vying for the Best Director and Best Picture Oscars for their films, The Hurt Locker and Avatar, respectively, and that this year there are ten nominees for Best Film rather than the usual five?
If you’ve answered “yes” to most of the above, then you’ll want to check out “7th Annual Great Performers in Film” in The New York Times Magazine. Vera Farmiga and George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Woody Harrelson, Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal, and more in, black-and-white. Five young actresses who gave breakthrough performances in living color. Backstage images from the “Golden Globe Awards.” And life on the road with Jeff Bridges of Crazy Heart, one of my favorites from last year.
When you’re finished, you’ll be ready to pop the popcorn, pour the wine, and settle in to see them all live next Sunday.
I’m heading out now to stock up … just in case there’s another snow storm. Stranger things have happened.
