My only regret is that “The Iron Lady” and “My Week With Marilyn” were up for awards in the same year. Meryl Streep, is a genius and deserves the award. A year earlier or maybe later, “Marilyn” and Michelle Williams, would have had a shot at the recognition the picture and the actress deserve. Williams, was amazing, as was Streep. But Streep is, well, Meryl Streep, and there is only one. I also think “Margin Call” was hugely underrated, but it’s all subjective, isn’t it?
A plea to the studios: Please don’t wait 11 months to release all your best work. Last year was dry as a desert followed by a December deluge.
