Ep. 50 - 2018 Frances McDormand

Best Actress

The year is 2018 and the nominees are:Sally Hawkins - The Shape of Water 2. Meryl Streep - The Post 3. Frances McDormand - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 4. Margot Robbie - I, Tonya 5. Saoirse Ronan - Lady BirdIn 2018 Frances McDormand won her second of three Academy Awards for Best Actress for the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It was her husband Joel Coen who convinced her to take the role. She protested the gig because she felt her character from this socio-economic strata would not wait until 38 to have her first child. Honestly, fair, but I bet she’s glad she accepted the role now! Her fellow nominees included Meryl Streep for The Post - the first time Streep and Spielberg worked together. Sally Hawkins in the Best Picturing winning film, The Shape of Water where she plays a mute woman who falls in love with ‘swamp thing.’ Saoirse Ronan in one of her most critically acclaimed role (oddly not one of my fav films of her’s (though I LOVE Ronan)) in Lady Bird. Finally, Margot Robbie in I, Tonya portraying her version of Tonya Harding’s controversial global figuring skating scandal. Join host Kyle Brownrigg with guest host Rob Browne as they discuss.

Brenda Blethyn won the BAFTA and Golden Globe for Secrets & Lies. Emily Watson wow’d audiences with her breakthrough and theatrical screen debut in Breaking the Waves. Diane Keaton was singled out of the star studded cast in Marvin’s Room playing a woman diagnosed with leukaemia. Kristin Scott Thomas was nominated for a sexy affair with Ralph Fiennes in The English Patient. Join host Kyle Brownrigg with guest host Cathryn Naiker as they discuss.

Frances McDormand is Unstoppable

The Reel Cut

Award season came to an abrupt and awkward end last month with the 93rd Oscars. Banished from the evening were controversies surrounding the lack of diversity amongst the acting/directing nominees, and in the gaping void they left behind came criticism around the reshuffling of the ceremony itself. In a year filled with opportunities for smaller, independent pictures to succeed and bathe in the warm glow of Hollywood's spotlight, the awards suffered their worst year on viewership of all time. Was that deserved and was that indicative of the gongs themselves being given to unworthy pieces of work? Absolutely not. Let's break down why.

Frances McDormand - Actress, Producer

Team Deakins

EPISODE 99 - FRANCES MCDORMAND - Actress, Producer Team Deakins gets the chance to catch up with a long-time friend, actress, and producer Frances McDormand (NOMADLAND, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI, FARGO). It’s a great conversation that hits lots of topics! Fran shares with us the difference for her between acting in theater and in film, what her approach is to acting, and how she learned and added to her craft over the years. She has lots of stories of her experience on the film Blood Simple which was an early experience with a lot of learning and where she met Joel Coen, her long-time partner. We also talk about working with less structure, improv, and playing a femme fatale. Fran shares her experiences on Nomadland, Olive Kitteridge, Mississippi Burning, and The Man Who Wasn’t there. We touch on how she chooses her roles and how she likes to mix things up with “palette cleansers”, playing a supporting role as well as how she feels she is a partner with the camera operator. And more and more! A great discussion with the always interesting and fun Fran! Don’t miss it!
