DDL and the Ladies
George Clooney knows it. If Daniel Day Lewis is in the running for an Oscar, everyone else can pretty much take the night off.
From the looks of the new Nine trailer, he’s assured of at least a nomination next awards season.
DDL stepped into the role originally confirmed for Javier Bardem who dropped out due to exhaustion. Seeing DDL in these scenes it’s hard to imagine anyone else. And as always, he’s a sexy, sexy, sexy beast. Am not usually a fan of musicals… but cannot wait to see this one. He’s on the Lifetime List, non?
Each lady looks magnificent, yes even the Granny Freeze. And Fergie too. The extra weight is great on her. Kate Hudson absolutely sparkles. My Marion is sublime. Dame Judi owns them all. Except of course for Sophia Loren.
Harvey Weinstein is pushing Nine hard starting the campaign very early this week at Cannes. Although Nine is not screening (Rob Marshall is apparently still cutting the film) Weinstein is throwing a Nine party and a cocktail. Penelope Cruz will already be at the festival supporting Pedro Almodovar. Word is right now she’s his first pick for an acting nomination. At least two other ladies are expected to show up on the Croisette in support as well. Harvey wants this one badly.
For now get your first taste of DDL. Nine opens in November.
