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 . . .
Mary Poppins makes a magical return as she must continue to look after the Banks children. This time Michael is struggling after the death of his wife and raising his three children Anabel, John and Georgie. About to lose the house on Cherry Tree Lane his sister Jane is trying to help the best she can.
We don’t really have too long to wait now for the return of Mary Poppins and I have to admit that I completely love this trailer! It really shows the magic they have created with the character we already love so much. Also I didn’t know about some of the cast!
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the sequel to the very successful Mamma Mia from 2008, this time we get a proper look back to what Donna went through and how she ended up in Greece and pregnant with Sophie.
I thought it was about time to take a little look back at the world of film a whole decade ago, yes really we have had Heath Ledger’s Joker for that long now! I was seriously hoping for a re-release at the cinema in all honesty, felt it would have been perfect to celebrate the 10th anniversary.
I am going to take a look at some of the films that I enjoyed most from 2008, this might be looking back to having seen them for the first time at the cinema or just catching up with them later. It’s actually quite scary when you look back 10 years and not realise which films were actually released then and we can now call old. I would think most of them are standing the test of time pretty well in all honesty.
The top award an actress can hope to win which also means Meryl Streep will somehow be involved! I think this year we have been given five fantastic performances which are all very different and from very different types of films. That certainly shows that this has been a great year for the roles women have been getting, especially considering the very negative time Hollywood has had. This will be a very good celebration for talent and roles.
Let’s have one last look at the actresses who have been nominated for performances in a leading role . . .
Again this year nine films have been nominated for the top award of Best Picture, always creating good talking points around film as people can often never understand why some were nominated and then go onto win. I think this year is actually pretty strong and a decent range, but I will get more into each individual film.
