Cate Blanchett, portada de Vogue

By Juan Bautista - 16 de diciembre de 2013 13 Comments

Si hay una protagonista con nombre propio en esta carrera esa es Cate Blanchett. La australiana está cada día más cerca de su segundo Oscar gracias a su interpretación en "Blue Jasmine" que va camino de convertirse en su trabajo más laureado, dominando la categoría de Mejor Actriz desde el arranque de temporada de premios de la crítica.

Aprovechando su privilegiada situación, la edición estadounidense de la prestigiosa revista 'Vogue' la lleva hasta su portada de su próximo número en una sesión fotográfica de Craig McDean.

    1. Y sigue...


      *Please Note: The WFCC Top Ten Hall Of Shame represents the ‘don’t tell me to shut up’ sidebar contribution of individual members, and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the entire Circle. Or may even dissent from an awarded nomination. Also, members may be objecting to particular characters in a film, and not the entire movie.

      Clarification: If an aspect of the movie is intentionally negative to make a point, rather than offensive, that is not under consideration for this category.

      "The Canyons"
      Women depicted as powerless and manipulative. Plus, the acting is horrid.

      "Spring Breakers"
      No depth, little plot and a pitiful depiction of today’s college kids. Gratuitous in nothing more than flesh and violence. A grossly and dangerously skewed depiction of young women and their values in today’s America.

      "Captain Phillips"
      The whole might of the USA coming down on 3 starving Somalis?! Repulsive. When the obscenely beefy SEALS arrived and the audience started to cheer, I felt I was watching a ‘macho’ director brainwash audience members into blindly accepting the worst stereotypes of jingoistic male behavior.

      "Blue is the Warmest Color"
      I went in knowing almost nothing except general buzz but I hated the sex scenes which were way too long and midway thru I couldn’t wait to flee the theater. Coming out I read how many takes Kechiche required and I was thoroughly repulsed. Who was this for? Then I read the graphic novel and discovered that critical plot points were deleted. Like the fact that Adele’s parents find her in bed with Emma which is why she has to move out — and I was enraged. A three hour movie, and Kechiche is so busy salivating over his actresses that he can’t bother telling a coherent story. Hype for this film makes me nauseous!

      "Blue is the Warmest Color"
      It’s so obvious a dude with a fetish directed this, it’s not only unappealing, it’s creepy. His overcompensating hubris isn’t worth the praise this is receiving.

      "Bastards, Les Salauds"
      All of the women in this film are depicted as complicit in their own oppression and exploitation. Though it’s a patriarchal system that they exist within, they refuse to fight for themselves or each other, even when a minor is involved. The indictment then is not of the men but of the women. I found this problematic and disappointing from Denis.

      The women in this group make meaningful choices each year so they speak for me in these areas, the lone exception being Sandra Bullock’s performance in "Gravity." She’s a fine actress, but I found the character to be whiny, cowardly, and full of the wrong stuff – a damsel in distress who needed a man (even if it was just her imagination) to pull her out of danger. I can hardly believe they’d send someone so panicky into space. Give me Sigourney Weaver any day.

      "Dallas Buyers Club"
      Shame on "Dallas Buyers Club" for completely ignoring the LGBT as a group who drove the fight against AIDS to the forefront. The only time gays were mentioned was to let Matthew McConaughey’s homophobic redneck character get a laugh at the expense of Jared Leto’s transsexual character. The film made it seem as if the whole AIDS community stood on the shoulders of Ron Woodruff when in fact, groups like Act Up were starting the war for proper testing and more drugs way before Ron entered into the picture. It completely demeaned the backdrop Dallas Buyers Club was utilizing for their own characterizing “hero” agenda. Also the film took an extreme opinion against the AZT drug in favor for a plot line when in fact it was helping some patients. The only saving grace was Jared Leto’s fantastic performance but unfortunately it wasn’t enough.


    2. Y al final...


      Enough Already
      Why is it that when actresses and even screen goddesses hit a certain age, they’re all cast as nags and shrews. No matter how accomplished any of these films may be, the tally of older actress shrewish nags on board is really high this year, as usual. Including Oprah Winfrey in "The Butler," Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in "August: Osage County," Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins in "Blue Jasmine," June Squibb in "Nebraska," Kristin Scott Thomas in "Only God Forgives" and Julianne Moore in "Carrie." Refreshing exceptions being Judi Dench in "Philomena," Yolonda Ross in "Go For Sisters" and Mary Steenburgen in "Last Vegas."


    3. Creo que hablo en nombre de mis compañeros al pedirte, Felipe, que rectifiques y retires lo de "machismo" por el simple hecho de no publicar unos premios que no tienen ningún peso y que, en verdad, con su hembrismo no hacen ningún favor al género, en general, ni a la industria cinematográfica.

    4. De hecho era una broma, supongo que los premios eran muy largos como para colocarlos en un solo post.
      Pero no comparto eso sí de que no tienen peso, porque yo consideraría que la de San Diego o Indiana sí que no tienen peso, eso es relativo a quien lo mire.


    5. Y lo de hembrismo, bueno la industria del cine (como todas desgraciadamente) siguen siendo machista y hasta misógina, lo que obliga a que las mujeres críticos se reunan a celebrar las mejores películas que reconocen el aporte de las mujeres en un mundo donde aún se las discrimina. ¿O es que acaso Hannah Arendt, una de las mejores películas del año, ha recibido algún premio en esta temporada? No. Pues tal como entiendo que los críticos afroamericanos se reunan a celebrar las películas que muestren la vida de la comunidad- y que en los premios se tienden a obviar- comprendo que las mujeres en la crítica hagan lo mismo.


    6. Que pelotudo que sos Felipe

  3. En hitflix ya han publicado a los ganadores de Chicago, no sé si será fiable:


  4. Me encanta Cate, aunque prefiero a Kidman. Incluso, aunque me caigan encima, Kidman es mejor actriz, solo que Cate ha elegido mejor sus papeles. ¿Cómo le hubiera ido a Kidman haciendo de Elizabeth o de Katherine Hepburn? Ojalá Cate gane, el Oscar como secundaria por esa actuación tan solo correcta en The aviator es muy poco para ella.
