Oscar-worthy Movie: Far From Heaven (2002)
Is there better proof of the Academy's incompetence than the fact that Julianne Moore, one of the greatest living American actresses, doesn't have a trophy? After all, she's been nominated four times for as many unforgettable roles, most notably as a porn industry vet in Boogie Nights, and a suburban wife coping with the discovery that her husband is gay in Far From Heaven. However, it wasn't even until the most recent Emmys, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Golden Globes that she took home her first major awards for her role in the TV movie Game Change.
We're confident an Oscar will soon follow. Let's hope it's not a Scorsese-esque bestowal that recognizes her achievements for the wrong film.
