My Favorite Female Supporting Performances of 2015

Every January, I make myself pick out specific performances I loved from the previous year. I spend so much time talking about movies, but I don’t actually give credit to specific performances. The only time I’ll talk about them is when I’m going over the Oscars. Which isn’t the same thing.

I’ll hurry through the categories and then tell you what it means for the Oscar race at the bottom.

Here are your SAG Awards results: (more…)


Pic of the Day: “You’re in love with him, aren’t you? Your poor patient. You think he’s a saint because of the way he looks? I don’t think he is.” “I’m not in love with him. I’m in love with ghosts. So is he, he’s in love with ghosts.”
