Final Conclusions - Best Actress 2007

  • We have different types of characters and very different actresses, from a French one to a screen legend to an almost debutante.
  • They also had different screentime: Ellen Page is in almost every scene of Juno, the same with Laura Linney and The Savages. Except the scenes with Edith Piaf as a child, Marion Cotillard has control of La vie en rose.
  • On the other hand, Cate Blanchett has to share the movie with other storylines that don't really involve her: the battle scenes with Spain, the love story between Clive Owen & the blond chick, the Spanish villains. Julie Christie's movie isn't really about her; Away from Her is focused on the husband dealing with his wife's illness.
  • It's one of the few times I've actually agreed with Oscar in this category. As you remember it was a justified race between Julie & Marion. If Julie wouldn't have already had an Oscar, she would have probably won. It was the right decision :)

So here's how I scored these ladies (based on the analysis made in previous posts):

1. Marion Cotillard, La vie en rose

2. Julie Christie, Away from Her

3. Laura Linney, The Savages

4. Ellen Page, Juno

5. Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth: The Golden Age
