I think Netflix has a slight problem. I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and debuted just a few weeks later on Netflix with no fanfare. Yesterday they released the trailer for The Most Hated Woman in America starring Melissa Leo Full Story

Uneasy is the head that wears the crown It would apply to Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, once all kings of the box office. For now though, RDJ’s reign seems pretty secure. He was first out with Iron Man 3. They came, they tried, they were turned away. It’s unlikely now that any other movie this year will match or exceed Tony Stark’s take. Full Story

Casting rumours are just like regular rumours. Everyone reads the first headline but no one ever reads the denial and subsequent dismissal. Take Melissa Leo for example. If you were to google Melissa Leo you’d find several pages of links reporting that she’s to be Mags in Catching Fire citing Variety as a source. Full Story

I interviewed Melissa Leo like 2 hours after she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She was really, really lovely. We were at Sundance.

Sarah, at the time, compared them to a “foot wound”. Full Story

Kate cusses back

As you know, Melissa Leo dropped an f-bomb at the Oscars in reference to Kate Winslet making it look “so f-cking easy”. Now Kate has answered back. Hilariously. In an interview with Zap2it, Kate replied: "Everyone dumps all this sh-t on me, all the f-cking time. Full Story

Oscar Undecided: Melissa Leo

Written by Sarah Last week during the liveblog someone asked if I knew of any examples of when Oscar campaigning has backfired. I couldn’t think of any off the top of my head (Deadline includes a list in the article sourced below), but now we have a contemporary example. Full Story

Keep your mind off it…and predictions

Tomorrow morning. You know. We all get up at the ass of morning and wait for the announcement – Oscar nominations. There will be a lot of white-knuckling tonight. But not from Melissa Leo. Love her. When I talked to her on the carpet last night at the Red State premiere, she was like – it’s an honour, but just like an audition, you have to put that away, you have to know there’s more to this than that kind of recognition. Full Story
