Friday night, Sharon and I saw Judy at the Century 14 theater. We are starting our annual quest. From now until January 13 when the actual nominations are announced, we will be guessing which films, actors and actress might be included.
Judy is a biographical drama film about the life of American actress and singer Judy Garland. It takes place in 1969. Most of the film is set in London as she arrives for a run of sell-out concerts at the Talk of the Town.
The film stars Renée Zellweger as Garland. It includes Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon in supporting roles.
Zellweger's performance is very, very good. While I don't think that the film will be nominated for Best Picture, I would be shocked if Renée is not nominated in the Best Actress Category. The early buzz is that she is the odds on favorite to win the award.
