I watched Being Julia a week ago. It wasn't a spectacular film but Annette Bening singlehandedly redeemed the movie by turning in an incredible performance as the ageing stage actress, Julia Lambert. Poised, calm, overwrought, hysterical, controlled and vindictive - all in the span of two hours... she was brilliant. She thoroughly deserved her Golden Globe, though it must be said out of the other four nominees, I've only seen two, and those two - Ashley Judd in De-Lovely and Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - were great as well.
