No individual performance write-up today, but two new site features that I hope you'll appreciate at least as much as my impending thoughts on Rachel Roberts. First, I have surprised even myself by experimenting with a Twitter feed to apprise you of updates and include the kinds of short cultural bulletins, movie-related and otherwise, that I don't have time to develop into full postsincluding very short responses to all those movies I see and then don't review!
Second, for those of you who are tracking my progress in Actress watching, but even more for you gallery types and fellow zealots who want to see the history of the category and pay the proper respects (yes, even to Ali MacGraw), visit the new Best Actress Gallery for a mosaic of the 408 nominated performances, in chronological order. The tiny cameos get bigger, in some cases much bigger, if you click on them, and you can glide your mouse over the tiles to see whom you're looking at. Gray boxes indicate the dozen performances I have left to see. (I'm presuming an average monitor setting of 1024 x 768, but I've included a link to a slightly different version that might be better for 1440 x 900 screen dimensions, which is what I have.) For those of us not in church this Sunday morning, this ought to furnish an opt alternative. Enjoy!
