Oscarwatch 2016: Supporting Actress – Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Stewart out Front

http://www.awardsdaily.com/blog/2015/06/oscarwatch-2016-supporting-actress-elizabeth-banks-kristen-stewart-out-front/

All in all …..it is a good read. It is also not the first time in the past few weeks that her name has been mention as a front runner for the best supporting actress category either.

Here is the snippet about Kristen:

One of the most surprising things that happened this year was that Kristen Stewart became the first American actress to win the Cesar for Supporting Actress. Surprising because the French don’t give out those awards to us Americans — never before, in the 40-year history of the Cesar. In one of the strongest turns for women overall, Stewart shines opposite Juliette Binoche in The Clouds of Sils Maria, one of the few films to examine the complicated relationships between women. Stewart is brilliant as the assistant who is plugged into the modern world helping to protect the aging (and self-involved) actress she works for. She represents integrity in an industry that has mostly forsaken it. The two actresses dig deeply into the play within a play, working out the stage relationship between the characters which then reflects on their own relationship. Stewart must therefore be considered among the strongest contenders at the moment for Best Supporting Actress.

You know what stood out in this for me…..is that little blurb about the Cesar Award. One that a few numb nuts say is not one of importance. Only……what they have yet to get through those thick pea brains of theirs is……that is is the equivalent to our Oscar. 

and this right here:

Thus, she made history in receiving this award.  Who knows…..an Oscar could be next. If now now……sometime soon. And……it is my wish for Rob too…….as they both love their craft……making movies.
