either Meryl or Viola will win… not michelle. BTW who picks out her clothes? Her six yo daughter probably dresses better.

# 2

I agree, julia.

I think the look on Michelle’s moon face is annoying, too. She seems awkward. I saw interviews of her, and she seems SO impressed with herself, and “acting” and the awards nominations. It’s not like she discovered a cure for cancer! I saw My Week With Marilyn and I thought she did a very good job, but she is not Meryl Streep or Viola Davis.

# 3

awful dress for Wiilliams

# 4

Meryl is a legend!

# 5

Will Meryl Streep win again and again and again? i hope is Viola this time! I agree that Michelle is kind of silly or so.

# 6

They say love is blind. Ledger must have been blind in both eyes. Or maybe blindsided?

# 7

Neither, Viola, Meryl or Michelle are the true winners. Michelle should’ve won last year for Blue Valentine.

The true winners this year are Elizabeth Olsen and Tilda Swinton! But of course the Academy plays it safe.

I adore Meryl Streep and I think she is a genius, but I don’t think she deserves an Oscar this year for Iron Lady. Of all the ones nominated,
I would pick Viola Davis as my #1, and Michelle Williams as my #2.

I think Michelle is very shy and uncomfortable and she tries to act like she is fine. That’s why it comes across as so uncomfortable.

Williams could act a little more enthusiastic about being there. She’s always so blah.

I think Michelle is gorgeous. Not many women can pull off the pixie hair but she does with flying colors. I think she is just radiant. This isn’t the greatest dresses but she is usually spot on with the outfits she wears. I don’t know who I want to win best actress. They all did magnificent jobs.

Michelle has such a wonderful legs! :)

@Peapo:
You really should get out more. Michelle Williams is gorgeous? She is nothing but a LITTLE SHRIMP. Excuse me but Michelle is not BARBIE PRETTY.

Michelle PRETENDS to be shy and awkward. Anyone who remembers her on Dawson’s Creek knows what I’m talking about!

Wow Michelle never looked better, and that dress is Chic personified, LOVE IT!

Meryl looks awesome as usual. She’s one classy and elegant lady!

As for Michelle – strange girl. She always looks miserable and her dress choices are always awful. That dress would look cute on a 6 year old. Seriously, at 31 years old you should know how to dress yourself and show a bit more self-confidence.

Michelle Gorgeoues , elegant , and cute .

@Lucy:

..Meryl will win again and again??…let’s get this straight for the last time. THE LAST TIME MERYL WON WAS 1983…CHECK YOU’RE CALENDAR HONEY, THAT’S 29 YEARS AGO AND MERYL IS THE ONE WHO’S DUE SWEETHEART. AFTER THAT JOKE OF A “WIN” BY BULLOCK (PURE PR BS IS WHAT IS WAS) IT ABOUT TIME THE ACADEMY DO THE RIGHT THING FOR ONCE!

I never thought I’d see the day when Meryl Streep is better dressed than Michelle Williams. I love you Meryl but your fashion sense is not the greatest.

@Diane: i agree, that win for bullock was one of the biggest mistakes, so unearned and that was one of the worst movies i’ve ever seen.

What’s with Michelle Williams pose??? What adult poses like that???

@jd: I can point to many an oscar that was ill-deserved, in the end an oscar is just a fancy paper weight. People put way too importance on it.

@Nano:
Michelle is the most calculated human being on the planet. Reality slapped her hard when Heath Ledger passed away. She remains very calculated but the public is not pleased with her and today she tries really hard to act soft and innocent when Michelle Williams is anything but.

@Princess: Whoa I don’t know if she’s THAT calculated but she is definitely ambitious. Nobody has publicists, a super agent and gets 3 nominations before the age of 31 without wanting it or in some part seeking it out. The image she currently projects is def not the full picture.
