The preconditioned, primal love for pretty little things is not what makes European culture superior. Try and come up with some better indications in the future.
Not that. I mean, Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, just to name three, and it's not like they were all terrible by the way - well, they'd never even been nominated for a major prize in Europe. Maybe Europe would be wrong, but it's a fact.
Natalie Portman's performance - which is, let's face it, very good, but this isn't the point - would easily win, for example, a Cesar. It's the kind of edgy acting turn that we like here - not an easy one, not the kind which makes one confortable. This doesn't necessarily mean that the Academy did it right - though I am sure that, for once, it did.
