More Tidbits

 
And more tidbits to start the weekend:

-During the last two days the press has covered extensively the Natalie’s statements on the pay gap between actors and actresses in Marie Claire article. Ashton Kutcher, Natalie’s co-star in “No Strings Attached”, has also spoken about the issue by supporting her partner through his twitter account.

-A few months ago we learned that Natalie will collaborate with the Boston Calling Festival in a new film line-up, taking advantage of the fact that the Festival changes its headquarters to Harvard Athletic Complex. Yesterday the music line-up was revealed, and also we knew that Natalie’ s contribution will include a showcase of women-produced/directed films to be screened on the festival grounds at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. This year the events will be held between May 26 and 28.

-Today is the last day for AMPAS members to vote the nominees for the next Academy Awards, and we all hope Natalie will be among the best actress nominees for her performance in Jackie. Until we know the answer, here is a new featurette on the film titled “Legacy”:

I’ll admit that I was not excited about Jackie when the project was first announced back in 2012 (was it really that long ago?). I was picturing a forgettable, paint by numbers biopic, and didn’t feel like Natalie looked the part of Jacqueline Kennedy. But when it was announced that Darren Aronofsky was involved in the production and Pablo Larraín was directing, I became more hopeful that Jackie could be something special. After the all the glowing reviews started pouring in earlier this year, I was impatient to see the finished film. Now that I have, I don’t feel like there’s much to say that hasn’t already been said. The hype is real, guys.

Jackie Photography Tidbits

 
Christmas is approaching, and a certain hiatus of news with it. Until the awards events of January begin, Jackie will expand in more US cinemas this holidays. One of the highlights of the movie, apart from Natalie’s performance and the Mica Levi’s soundtrack, is the cinematography by Stephane Fontaine. Awards Daily has an interesting interview with him, in which he describes the difficulties during the shooting in Washington D.C. and the Paris studios.

Also, we have a new “for your consideration” poster, and a couple of behind-the-scenes photos:

Golden Globe Hat-trick?

 
We are less than three weeks away from the 74th Golden Globes and with Natalie claiming a best actress nomination for Jackie, I thought it would be fun to take a look at Natalie’s past Golden Globes experiences.

But first, let’s look at her chances this year. Natalie is in the drama category, which means that some of her biggest awards season rivals (like Emma Stone) are not a threat for the Globes. To this end, a Golden Globe win is more likely than winning a second Best Actress Academy Award.

The Vegas odds seem to back that up. OG.lv has Natalie as the favourite with odds of 7/2 while Variety reports on odds that also have Natalie the favourite with odds of 8/5.

6fc51ffc34c2f9a7236b7e4b6cfca890

If Natalie wins it will be her third Golden Globes win and take her into a third-place tie for most Actress wins. Meryl Streep is way out front with seven and Shirley Maclaine has four.

In 2000 Natalie was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Anywhere But Here. She lost.
In 2005 she was a Best Supporting Actress winner for Closer.
In 2011 she won Best Actress – Drama for Black Swan.

Hopefully, on January 8th, 2017 we’ll see on stage to collect her third win.
