Best Supporting Actress
2003 wins: L.A. Film CriticsNominated: SAG Awards; BAFTA; Chicago Film Critics; Golden Satellite Awards Oscar pedigree: Nominated: “Boogie Nights” (1997), “The End of the Affair” (1999) Moore on the importance of supporting roles: “I’m looking for films; I’m not looking for characters.” (Entertainment Weekly, Dec.) What we said: “Moore’s role represents an interesting variation on her anguished 1950s housewife in ‘Far From Heaven.’” – Todd McCarthy (Dec. 11) What they said: “Ms. Moore brings to the role the same luminous demureness that colors her portrayal of an innocent, well-meaning Connecticut housewife whose world shatters in ‘Far From Heaven.’” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times This could be the night: Although she’s not the favorite, Moore is respected, tackles daring roles and might be the most decorated actress without an Oscar. Then comes the rub: Voters may give her the best actress win for the somewhat snubbed “Far From Heaven” and leave it at that.
