"Director Erick Zonca knew from the start that he wanted Swinton to play the eponymous anti-heroine in his new film "Julia,"... ... "She is a very special actress because she doesn't belong to the Hollywood system."

Well my Oscar Overture had more hits than I thought! My "guesses" for screenplay, sound and of course Ratatouille all came in (no contest for the animated movie really). The rest was pretty well fore-told but I was surprised by Tilda Swinton's award, not that she wasn't really good as the 'white bitch' Karen Crowder opposite George Clooney's Michael Clayton; however she may need to be careful in selecting scripts to avoid being type-cast: hard, white bitch from cruel White Witch (Narnia) with the odd short drama in between - 'Julia' looks a good bet too: out this month (I think) French writer-director Erick Zonca makes his English-language debut, inspired by John Cassavetes' 1980 film 'Gloria'.
