Our jury met yesterday. I can't divulge the results just yet, but I can share some new award categories I came up with that were wisely rejected when cooler heads prevailed.
Best performance as the victim of a disaster enduring an excruciating struggle for survival:
1) Naomi Watts in "The Impossible" as a mother vacationing in Thailand with her family who must ***endure brutal hardships in order to find her lost sons and husband.
It's a shame that the world, according to Rapture experts, ends May 21 because that
means we'll miss some interesting end of the world movies. Not necessarily films in which the world ends with a bang, like "Armageddon" or '2012," but more the whimper
kind-- reflective and philosophical.
Like Lars Von Triers's "Melancholia,"
which just premiered at Cannes.
