Naomi is on a heroine chic tour this awards season. I got TEXTS (multiple!) about this entry:
The texters were correct, Naomi Watts is my superheroine of the night. And it’s a stunning dress, too:
Naomi Watts has been out of the spotlight the past year or so, but she decided to come back with a BANG. She has at least 5 films coming out this year, she just scored her second Oscar Nomination, and she showed up to the People’s Choice Awards in sparkling gold heroine chic:
And then, to secure her title as Superheroine of the Night, she presented the award to Tony Stark himself.
I think Naomi Watts was mad I said she’d aged out of playing Carol Danvers (if Carol is headlining what should be her origin story she should be younger than 40) because she showed up to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards wearing this:
Now, from the front this is barely heroine chic at all (though she went with the messy ponytail so I think she was pushing for it): Read the rest of this entry »
Tony and Pepper were flawless Sunday night, but there were a few other superheroes on the red carpet (not as many as last year, we failed to complete a Bingo). Maybe Gwen Stacey doesn’t count as a superhero?
But Emma Stone does.
I like to say I have reality-shifting “chaos powers” along the lines of Wanda Maximoff’s. Just, you know, not so powerful, and with no training. Anyway, lately my chaos powers have been going crazy. For example: I, like many, like to cast my favourite characters and/or cast my favourite actors in my favourite stories. I’ve mentioned before that Naomi Watts and Diane Kruger are my top picks for my best Marvel heroine, Ms. Marvel, and I am infatuated with the idea of Katie Holmes as Jessica Jones. I’ve also been saying since the first of Christopher Nolan’s Bat films (which starred Katie Holmes) that I want to see Talia Al Ghul on the big screen.
Valerie Plame was a for real super spy in the CIA. She was outed by the Bush administration, lost her job, wrote a book, Doug Liman (the man behind the Bourne films and USA’s Covert Affairs) made it in to a movie starring Naomi Watts, and last May they walked the Red Carpet together at Cannes:
I hope they make it all the way to the Academy because this is true beauty.
I would see Salt just for Angie but if you’re wavering here’s another reason to go:
Liev Schreiber is a yummy scowling CIA agent. Let’s see how he does on the Red Carpet:
I can’t decide if this picture is supposed to say “Look! Tom Cruise isn’t the shortest man in Hollywood” or “Well, Emma Watson isn’t THAT tall”:
But it must be the Tony people are having a laugh. Katie’s dress looks a size too small and Danny’s suit a size too big, it can’t NOT be on purpose, right? But you know, now I really want to see the amazingly mismatched Danny and Katie Variety Show. Don’t you?
Let’s look at a few Matched Couples:
Two characters. One male, one female. One Marvel, one DC. One over 80 years old, one over 800 years old. One all-American, one a Greek immigrant — both famous for wearing the American flag.
Captain America and Wonder Woman are star-spangled icons.
It’s the battle of the Marilyns: Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams are at Cannes this week, promoting their films (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and Fair Game, and Blue Valentine, respectively). Naomi was recently cast as Marilyn in Blonde based on the fictionalized memoir of the same name (by Joyce Carol Oates) and Michelle is expected to play her in an as yet untitled film directed by Simon Curtis. So who will be the better Marilyn? And who is making the biggest fashion splash at Cannes?
