I will not merely be cheering for Mirren this oscar night, but continuing my insane worship of her as well. She is one of the worlds best actresses, I swear. All you have to do is watch Prime Suspect 1 and you will see what I mean. Honestly–watch it now, or as soon you possibly can. I've told you all about it once before, you have no excuse, now rent it! Done? Ok.
Not only is she a complex, accomplished actress and woman, but she is witty, ballsy, and grows more attractive each year. In an industry that dares to sell Sienna Miller and Gretchen Mol (have they given up that dream yet) like bland packages we are supposed to love just for the mere fact that they are young, it is nice to have someone you can actually admire succeed in the industry by doing project far more interesting than Factory Girl and Rounders.
