    I think hollywood is a sad a pathetic place if you can get an oscar for doing nothng, Halle has no movie out and she is running around like someone is talking about a movie she was in, but no one hasn”t seen Frankie and Alice. They say is just as horrible as rest of her movies. Hollywood has lost it’s zest.

    JANET JACKSON ALL THE WAY, AND THANDIE NEWTON AND LERETTA DEVINE. HALLE WHO?

  • Lilakoi Moon

    Good for her. But I wish Natalie Portman would win the award. I don’t like it when old winners are nominated again. If they win it once, then we all know they’re amazing actors, there’s no need to nominate them again lol. That’s how I think. It’s like they’re always nominating the same ones and not giving a chance to new talents. Back in the old days, some actress was nominated 4 times. Don’t even get me started on Meryl Streep XD …… I know they’re good and deserve to be praised for every single outstanding performance they give but I just want new people to be nominated and thus be able to win.

  • Lucy

    Haven’t read any reviews on her movie yet and hoe can she be a contender???
    All others names mentioned have their movies presented at the festivals and getting good reviews. Halle’s angle is by making publicity rounds with a new boyfriend?

  • Lilakoi Moon

    *I meant back in the old days, some actress WON four times.

  • Lilakoi Moon

    Can Halle get any fitter?!? Her body is to die for…. I love her Lexus<3

  • Lucy

    Jennifer Lawrence is so unknown. They need good promotion for her. Last year, there were 2 unknown actresses the critics loved, but they just disappeared by award time. Marion Collitard is also unknown especially in US but she won almost every awards she was nominated.

  • j

    she’s baaaack :)

    Go Halle!

  • Dan

    Oscar nominations are something to be proud of, as well as looking as great as she does.

  • SillyB

    HALLE THINKS SHE WILL WIN ANOTHER OSCAR BY HAVING A OVER THE TOP OSCAR CAMPAIGN. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY, THE WORD IS THE MOVIE FRANKIE AND ALICE IS HORRIBLE, I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISE IF OPRAH WAS THE ONE TO DISTRIBUTE HER MOVIE. GO COLOR GIRLS, TYLER PERRY.

  • Brightside

    Halle Berry is an amazing woman. In her forties and still so beautiful, still so talented. How wonderful and inspiring it is to know that, among the plethora of publicity seeking no-talents and grotesque reality stars that blight american and english celebrity culture, there are still those, like Halle, who truly shine. She is a rare diamond among all those fake and ersatz bits of paste and glass that are often featured on this site.

  • Wonder

    @Dan I think we know who you are, a paid critic, go put your job at good use on Thandie Newton. Stop being a a…ss. Do your job.

  • Eric

    @BRIGHTSIDE, GO SALE YOUR BULLSH..IT TO SOMEONE ELSE, WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE. STOP TRYING SO HARD, THE PU….SY IS NOT THAT GOOD, AS WE CAN SEE. HALLE SMELLS OF FAKE AND PHONY, GLASS CEILING, WHAT A JOKE. SHE MAY WANT TO SPEND HER TIME WITH HER KID, THAT GUY LOOKS ALITTLE BIT SNEAKY. BUT WHAT WOULD SHE KNOW, TO BUSY RUNNING AROUND TOWN, KISSING A…SS.

  • Brightside

    @Eric:
    You sound exactly like the sort of ignorant person who will drool over Snooki’s autobiography and probably have pictures of her on your wall covered in semen stains. The sort of person who idolises the d-list ignoramuses of reality tv and the lowest echelon of celebrity culture!

  • Shatiwa

    hhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, someone don’t like reality tv, @Brightside, hey I love reality shows, they act better than most over paid druged up mental illness plactic surgery actors in hollywood. @Brightside sounds like it needs a good backdoor cleaning.Go reality tv.

  • RANKRANK

    Now we get it, the only reason she has been showing up everywhere and with the kid, phony boyfriend (looking like a drunk) and paid the gay sperm donor to keep his loser mouth close, is for all her pr just to get another oscar, lol, but Halle don’t understand, we don’t care and want go see her movie and will know when she show up on Oprah telling lies it want work.

    @Billy:
    Rank Rank…what is it you get? have you not read a zillion times about actors/celebrities who hate the PAPS …Halle Berry has no control over these scumbags, who MAKE money talking pictures. Here you are window peeping into Halle Life slobbering all over yourself to try and get some of her limelight…IF YOU DON’T CARE YOU SILLY IDIOT..WHADDA DOING ON HERE COMMENTING ON HER LIFE…GET YOUR OWN LIFE AND DO SOMETHING WITH IT.

  • beetlejuice

    @Eric: My GOODNESS THE mental health daycare facilities has let the goonies out to play on the computer today…some more early onset of senile dementia of the terminally stupid…

  • truthseeker

    @SillyB: SillyB…love the name, you probably know yourself better than we do…so we except you are a sillyB…and if we take it from there…all you say about Halle is your jealousy…windowpeeping on a beautiful woman who has everything you probably wish you had…life is a silly B and then you figure out you do not have what it takes

  • truthseeker

    @Shatiwa:
    Online forums have become the playground of those who have not succeeded in their lives…so you get the poorly educated, mean, nasty and seriously in need of psychiatric help… they whine about a woman they do not know…she goes about her great life totally ignorant that these low lifes are on here regurgitating their sad sad lives. Most of the vitriol out of their mouths and on to the screen says more about them than it does about Halle

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Billy: Billy the problem seems to be that you are attempting to think…it does not appear to be a skill you have perfected.

    Halle does not decide she is going to go for the Oscar, the studio who produced the movie decides that based on the level of critical acclaim the film is getting from important critics gives it a chance …so same your unhappy whine for somebody who cares!

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @ske89m2:

    Silly people…why can’t a whole bunch of black women do great acting and all be considered Oscar worthy.?…seems that happens with white actresses…last I look whole bunches of them get nominated and you don’t hear them trashing each other or fans trashing the competition…you black folks need some manners and perhaps just a bit of education…by the way I am black…and just telling it like it is…that whole willingness to biatch about your own people, then get pissed when a white person does the same thing you do…is getting really old…grow UP!

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Shatiwa: If you love reality…that tells us all we need to know about you and the silliness that you consider thoughtworthy…no thanks

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Eric:

    I suspect Eric weighs about 300 lbs and hasn’t had a date in a looooong time…any man who wants to talk about a woman’s private parts online…probably haven’t seen them in a looooooooooooooooonger time is probably a pretty sick little puppy.

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Lilakoi Moon: Okay let’s take that idea and extend it to its silliest possibilities…Let’s say you work at a regular job and you get a promotion and a raise…two years go by and the quality of your work is even better and your bosses say lets consider givinng Lilakoi Moon another promotion and raise…and somebody pipes up and says… I think Lilakoi Moon got a raise and promotion two years ago and since she’s gotten one raise and promotion, I don’t think she should get a raise and promoted again. Ridiculous huh? Actors are working at their crafts–their jobs…why should they get as much accolades and Oscars as they can win. Their work is not static, they are constantly learning and getting better

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Lucy: Are you people brain dead?? Halle doesn’t make this decision…her studio does and the studio who has made the huge investment in the film does this because many critics (Cannes Film Festival) who receive a private DVD of the film in advance of its opening have given it excellent reviews. Based on those reviews the Studios have to decide whether to spend the money on a campaign. They do not do that lightly because its a lot of money. It also requires the actor to be able to travel and promote the movie. Halle has three new films she is contracted to do and a play on Broadway…She also has two new movies completed ((including this Frankie)… People if you are going to B&Moan…at least know what you are whining about!

  • Jackson

    I have never heard of a movie being considered for an Oscar that has not been released. I agree she is fake running around she use to hide and now she is everywhere.

  • From Paris with Love

    Well she won her first one with a role that consisted in wearing tank tops with no bra, getting f*cked doggy style and having her p*ssy eaten while making weird faces LOOOOL s.l.u.t

  • forgetMEnot

    I haven’t heard of this film and it hasn’t been talked about by critics.

    So far, the front-running contenders for Best Actress:
    - Natalie Portman (Black Swan)
    - Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs)
    - Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole)
    - Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone)
    - Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right)
    - Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right)
    - Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine)
    - Sally Hawkins (Made in Dagenham)
    - Naomi Watts (Fair Game)

  • Me

    Halle can act compared to the common person on teh street, but compared to Natalie portman and Merylr streep she needs to take a back seat adn show respect. dont even think her acting is worth a nomination. to win, you just have to well liked adn do as you are told

  • Katie

    People here are alarmingly ignorant and psychotic. Wow I wonder what it is about this site that attracts the lowest of scum. Halle Berry doesn’t decide whether or not she goes for an Oscar, it’s the studios decision based on how well the movie and her performance are received in film festivals. Campaigns are not cheap, they wouldn’t go through all the trouble if the many heads at the studio behind this movie hadn’t come to a consensus. Allegedly, an early review from a major trade said she was “spellbinding” and there’s sure to be more of where that came from. Halle Berry is talented albeit wildly inconsistent so who knows maybe here she finally gets it right again? We’ll see. But people seriously stop projecting whatever real world issues you have onto her. Some of these comments are so disgusting its hard to even read them.

  • mango

    she’s too skynni.
    Her spontaneous and natural talent was never before dictated by a romance, She is choosing so wrong now with Martinez. They do not fit together at all .
    Time to re-focus your attention Halle Berry, and dare to change radicully to what you want ( and are and really need)

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @Billy

    Just go to Youtube.com and do a search on Halle in Poland or Halle in Germany…she does not depend only on Americans for her fame or selling her movies.

  • outofthemouthofbabes

    @mango:
    Your post is beyond silly….how do you tell another person whom you do not know that another person, whom you also do not know is not the person for her??? Can people be addicted to just regurgitating crap online? I think so.

  • beetlejuice

    @Me: Nothing against Natalie or Meryl, but they are both white actresses, and neither have a real problem getting good scripts…sorry black actresses have to work harder and it takes longer to find a good script. Yet you have to keep working to be considered for better scripts, so in the mean time you take the work you can get…duh! old news but sooooootrue!

  • beetlejuice

    @From Paris with Love: What a sick puppy….does mental health daycare give you access to a compuer often?

  • dooliloo

    ..did they mean Oscar de la Renta?.?.? Tha for sure she can pull it off

  • LOL at Dooliloo
