Third time was not a charm for Julianne Moore. Nor was the fourth.
The fifth Oscar nod has to be it. Portraying a memory-impaired Alice in ‘Still Alice’ with such finesse, the 54-year-old’s talent might finally score her an Oscar win this year.
Even with fierce competition from her fellow nominees such as Rosamund Pike (‘Gone Girl’), Felicity Jones (‘The Theory of Everything’) and Reese Witherspoon (‘Wild’), Moore’s performance in this film has made her a clear frontrunner to take the coveted gold statuette home.
But just like the family at the centre of the film, it was very much a team effort that made ‘Still Alice’ such a gripping and moving drama devoid of any dull moments.
