Julia Roberts Film World Cup

As you are probably already aware Julia Roberts is my favourite actress and over the long lockdown days and now weeks I have really enjoyed taking part in the different polls that have been running World Cup style competitions for films, actors and tv shows etc.

So I have launched my own, round 1 is now live on Twitter. The films are split into 12 groups and the top two films will go through into round 2!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone votes to be their favourite Julia Roberts film over the next few days!

Happy International Women’s Day!

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!

Top 25 – Female Performances in 2019

2019 has been a fantastic year for female roles as I had 41 performances on my long list to cut down to make this top 25. I can only think that is an amazing way to notice the change in more interesting roles for females within film. I feel this list has a very good mixture of different types of roles across the different genres.
