These aren’t exactly blockbusters. (Not a peep from Sweeney Todd, and no awards for Old Men either.) In fact, I’ve seen exactly one of these films: Away From Her. I’m glad Christie won for her mesmerizing performance.
And even though I’m not sure about I’m Not There, I do want to see Blanchett as Dylan:
The Savages looks pretty great too. Here’s writer and director Jenkins with stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney:
I don’t know anyone who has seen There Will Be Blood, and I couldn’t even find any comments about it in the AfterEllen.com forums — and we’re quite a moviegoing bunch! But I just checked IMDb, and it looks like there are very few women in the movie. No wonder we’re skipping it.
The Envelope has the full list of honorees, as well as the second- and third-place winners. (Members of the society ranked three choices via a weighted ballot; winners had the most points and also appeared on a majority of the ballots.) Here are some notable silver and bronze placements:
