This week we are exploring the 1999 cult classic - Election. This dark comedy sealed the deal for Reese’s eventual casting in Legally Blonde, so you know she pulls out all the stops in her role as Tracy Flick. We love that while this movie is over the top, it also provides some empathetic, introspective moments (and some great freeze frames)!Episode sponsored by:Bright Endeavors: https://brightendeavors.org/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bright_endeavors/Use code GIRLCRUSH15 for 15% off your order through May 15th!

One of Hollywood’s most prolific figures working today, Reese Witherspoon has created unforgettable female characters onscreen—and offscreen, with her award-winning media company Hello Sunshine. From Tracy Flick to Elle Woods to Madeline Martha Mackenzie, few actors have as many household names in their body of work as Reese does. How does she approach such roles? “It’s almost like being an anthropologist,” she tells Backstage. “You are studying contemporary behavior and how people interact and then applying it to character.” And her advice for fellow artists is evergreen: “You’re never gonna lose anything by trying. So dare greatly.”An Emmy, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA, and Academy Award winner, Reese began appearing in commercials at a young age in Tennessee, taking odd jobs in film production before dropping out of school to pursue acting. She broke out in “The Man in the Moon,” “Cruel Intentions,” and “Election” before starring in the “Legally Blonde” films, “Walk the Line” as June Carter Cash, “Wild” as Cheryl Strayed, and more. Reese has since pioneered female-led stories on TV, producing and starring on “Big Little Lies,” “Little Fires Everywhere,” and Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show,” where her performance as Bradley Jackson is nominated for two 2022 SAG Awards.

The year is 2006 and the nominees are:Reese Witherspoon - Walk the Line 2. Felicity Huffman - Transamerica 3. Charlize Theron - North Country 4. Judi Dench - Mrs Henderson Presents 5. Keira Knightley - Pride & PrejudiceIn 2006 Reese Witherspoon won the Oscar for Best Actress for playing June Carter-Cash in the Johnny Cash bio pic, Walk the Line. Many people compare this win to Julia Roberts in that they don’t understand how she swept the award circuit for this role. I have seen this film many times and I’ve always loved Reese in it. Is a lead Oscar win? We discuss more on the podcast episode. Felicity Huffman gives one of the best performances in Transamerica. It’s sad to see her movie career didn’t continue to live up to the success of this film. Charlize Theron was nominated for ‘North Country’ a movie about female factory workers in Minnesota and the harassment they endure. Keira Knightley was nominated for Pride & Prejudice and so began her slew of historic film roles. Finally, Judi Dench was nominated in one of the most confusing movies I have ever seen, Mrs Henderson Presents. Join host Kyle Brownrigg with guest host David Brennan as they discuss.
