What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than a collage of my favourite actresses who have brought me so much joy and escapism from watching them in films or tv shows over the years!
Over the years the Best Actress in a Supporting Role race has become a lot stronger and that is certainly a very positive and good thing! Showing that the female roles are well and truly improving. Laura Dern has been running away with everything this awards season with some people arguing that Marriage Story wasn’t even her best 2019 performance thinking about her in Little Women! Being full on team Jojo Rabbit I would love to see Scarlett Johansson getting this one!
Best Actress in a Leading Role always offers a very varied range of different types of characters. This year we have three that are based on real life people, one from a novel adaptation and one original character. Renee Zellweger has been sweeping this years awards season!
Rachel Weisz for The Favourite
Something very positive from 2018 was how many fantastic roles in film we had for women, this list was extremely difficult to put together this year as I certainly had a lot to choose from! That can obviously only be a very good thing in my opinion.
Here are the 25 performances that made it onto my list . . .
I still cannot quite get my head around this doubly sad and upsetting news about two screen legends. Carrie Fisher grew up in the spotlight and no surprise that she ended up in show business as well. So many lovely photos have been appearing throughout the day and I just had to pick my 7 favourites. To celebrate the life and love of the mother and daughter ❤
