For your consideration... the bitches:
I find it very sad that these three lovely, icy, fantastical bitches/witches will almost certainly be ignored during awards time. Each is (debatably) the best part of her film. Each is unique and obsession-worthy. And each is trapped in a genre film, and hence, preordained not to be award-worthy. Damn. But isn't it great that we get this huge concentration of fantasy bitch supporting actresses this year? I love a good trend.
FOUR YOUR CONSIDERATION...
Nicole Kidman (The Golden Compass)
Michelle Pfeiffer (Stardust)
Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter: The Order of the Phoenix)
in the categories of...
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS,
Film Bitch "VILLAIN OF THE YEAR"
And while we're at it, add:
Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton)
She may not be in a fantasy film, but we love her just the same. Besides, she's an honorary member of this year's fantasy witch/bitch club, for her past performance in Narnia. I hope at least this performance gets Swinton recognized finally. Clayton is doing well so far... the path seems clear. The Golden Globe and Critics' Choice nominations will tell us a lot. Cross your fingers.
