There's still the Critics Choice Awards to look forward to on Thursday. I can't believe that in a room full of her friends and co-stars, we have yet to get any pictures of Pfeiffer with any of them. Hopefully we will get some soon.
At the end of her part, where she looks to her left and smiles, I wonder if she's looking at David or Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw or Meryl Streep. Not that it matters, I'm just a nerd for stuff like this, Lol.
Well, I may eventually forgive the HFPA for going with Laura Dern because they cut to a beaming Michelle when David accepted on behalf of the Big Little Lies team. I loved those brief moments and I laughed out loud when Nicole Kidman cheered when Michelle’s named was called. But I still think her performance was better and the role more difficult than Dern’s, who was shrill and one note IMO.
For pure beauty, class and as an example of how to age gracefully, no one can touch Lapfeiffer.
Sad that there are no photos of her at the ceremony mingling with other celebs. Love that David and Michelle were sitting right behind Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and when Kidman won Steven tapped David on the shoulder to congratulate him. I love their friendship

I'll be totally honest and say I didn't love her outfit (well the skirt part anyway), but she herself looked amazing and it was so nice to see her get some recognition after 28 years on such a big stage.
I don't know where she'll go from here. She may want to work more, but I presume she'll always be picky and easily spooked when it comes to projects. Lets just hope she surprises us and gets many more nominations in the future. I feel like the industry is waiting, she just needs to want it more than ever.
well...i think it's a now or never situation for Michelle and im sure she knows it...i mean she had an amazing year, succesful films and series, much publicity, her "comeback" made headlines internationally....so i don't think it's easy to repeat that hype if she takes some kind of a break now.... i mean what's the point in taking a 2 years of again?? Plus she has 2 unreleased films already...so i believe, even if she doesn't feel like doing it, she will try to be "visible" in 2018 as well...!
This is mainly why I want her to mingle at these functions. Introduce herself to directors or producers, actors she hasn't yet met, that might help her get more offers. But on the other hand, I really can't blame her for not wanting to do that, especially if she has anxiety like she said. You have to give her credit for even going at all.
I'm sure she has something in the works, she HAS to be getting more, better offers after working with Aronofsky and giving a fierce performance. Where is Kyra? should help too, at least with indie directors. I know that David Lowery, director of Ain't Them Bodies Saints and A Ghost Story, saw Where is Kyra? in 2017 and apparently really liked it.
I sunscribe the words of Michaelh and hope that David will creat a great role for her at tv or movies. Michelle could have done Laura Dern's role or Nicole Kidman's role.
Im sad for Sally Hawkins too, because she is my second favorite actress and she lost the award (I hope she wins at the Oscars). I love Frances Mc Dormand but she has 3 or 4 Globes.
And with the honorary awards, the Globes allways give the award to their 'friends', like Streep, Washington, etc. etc who have a lot of Globes, what a silly thing.
As for the Academy they give honorary Oscars to people like Jackie Chan.............. without words. Actresses of the level of Dorothy Mc Guire and Eleanor Parker never had one. Hope is not Pffeifer fate... but one can very happy and more talented without one.
In the meantime, we'll have fun here ¡¡ Nice to meet you

Actually, McDormand had never won one until last night. Her and the rest of the cast from Short Cuts were given special ones for their collective contributions to that film back in the 90s, but she herself has never won despite being nominated numerous times over the years.
Sally won her first time out back in 2009 for Happy-Go-Lucky...n she deserved it!!

Did you notice that Michelle gave Saoirse Ronan a standing ovation when she won? Too bad she kinda snubbed her, although I'm almost certain she didn't see Michelle. Would've been nice if she hugged Michelle or something considering ICNBYW was her first movie.
