Friday is almost upon us so to ease into the reverie, here are some new Natalie Portman tidbits.
– The LA Online Film Critics Society handed out their mid-year awards. Natalie was nominated for Best Actress and Annihilation also got several other nominations, but in the end the only success was runner-up for Best Adapted Screenplay.
– Somewhat related, The Playlist has an early look at next year’s Academy Award potentials for Best Actress and Natalie’s Annihilation is mentioned… as a long-shot.
– The Genesis “Jewish Nobel” Prize, which Natalie chose to not accept, was finally given to Ruth Bader Ginsburg who, at one stage, Natalie was set to play in a biopic. It turns out Ginsburg was the original choice for the award, so perhaps fitting that she received it.
