Gabrielle Christian has played Spencer Carlin for three seasons on South of Nowhere. Now 23 years old, she has appeared in numerous other TV shows, including most recently CSI: Miami.
Best Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men
Most Frightening: "Sweeney Todd was gruesome, man! But then again I hate anything that has to do with necks. Therefore, seeing them carved up and splashing blood … oh my God, I am going to puke (it was a whole lot easier to watch onstage from the nosebleed seats at the Kennedy Center)."
Character Who Should’ve Been a Lesbian: "Keira Knightley in Atonement — wowza."
Character Who Should Guest-star on South of Nowhere: "Miss Ellen Page! She is so cute and confident. Spence would dig her."
Role I Would’ve Killed For: "Kristen Stewart’s role in Into the Wild (my favorite film of the year). Stewart is smoking hot in it, plus she gets to sing, play an instrument, live in a happening trailer park, and last but not least, hang out with Emile Hirsch (which is even hotter)."
Jenni Olson is currently developing a new feature
film, Get Me Guinevere Turner. Her
first feature, The Joy of Life,
premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, and her historical movie trailer
programs (including Homo Promo) have
been shown at film festivals around the world. She is the author of The Queer Movie Poster Book and The Ultimate Guide to Lesbian & Gay Film and Video, and is a
leading expert on LGBT cinema history.
Best Actress: "Ellen Page [Juno]
is captivating in one of the best-written female roles of the year; she manages
to evolve from wacky and charismatic to poignant and complex."
Best Short Documentary: Freeheld
Best Scene: "The scene most vivid in my memory is from a film
that I really did not enjoy, No Country
for Old Men. But the final scene is absolutely mesmerizing, as Tommy Lee
Jones sits at the kitchen table in the early morning light and describes how he
dreamed of his dead father. Vanessa Redgrave’s final scene in Atonement is similarly gripping."
Gayest Straight Character: "Definitely Erica Bain (Jodie
Foster’s character in The Brave One). The scene where she rescues the hooker
(played by the gorgeous Zoe Kravitz) in the back seat of the car is fantastic!
The way Jodie plays the scene is so sensual and suggestive (and I am not
imagining this — watch it and see for yourself), she seems almost like she’s
going to kiss her. The shot is very tight and intimate. Really provocative."
Best Lesbian Motion Picture: "Itty Bitty Titty Committee. This is absolutely my favorite movie of the year and one of the
most enjoyable, fun, sexy, politically astute lesbian movies ever made."
Most Watchable Performance by a Straight Actress: "Keira
Knightley in anything."
