Awards Preview: "The Reader"

Guys, like just about every other movie, I didn't see The Reader.

This is the 10th out of 10 films I have previewed for awards season, and I actually know nothing about it. Well, I saw the poster today in the movie theater, but other than that... nada.

The only thing I can say about The Reader is that it's possible Kate Winslet's performance takes away possible votes from her performance in Revolutionary Road, leaving her deprived of a nomination. Apparently, however, Weinstein Co. is pushing her as supporting actress for this film, a move which seems kinda silly, since she's the star of the movie.

Sorry for being a half-assed d-bag, but I'm in the process of making a midnight snack. Priorities, people.

The Reader looks incredible. Watch for the trailer online... Kate Winslet plays a Nazi prison camp guard. She had an affair with a young boy before she became a Nazi, she liked it when he read to her... she leaves him, and years later he is a law student studying her trial. Ralph Fiennes is the boy, grown up.

As we can see in the Golden Globe nominations, I don't think we have to worry about votes being split as she is in two different categories, Best Actress for Revolutionary Road and Best Supporting Actress for The Reader... I don't know. Two completely different characters and performances. She is the new Meryl Streep... even though Meryl Streep is clearly still going strong.
