And the nominees are…
Lesley Manville – Another Year
Cate Blanchette – Hanna
Bojana Novakovic – Burning Man
Anna Kendrick – 50/50
Olivia Colman – Tyrannosaur
And the Gosling goes to…
Winner: Lesley Manville – Another Year
We weren’t the biggest fans of Mike Leigh’s ‘Another Year’ but Manville left an impression on us with her amazing performance. Manville plays Mary, a spinster who pines for acceptance and wallows in her own self-pity. Mary drowns her sorrows with wine in the company of friends but it’s clear that she is a very troubled person. Manville completely disappears into the character and it’s a real shame that she hasn’t got more recognition. We’re proud here at The Popcorn Junkie to include Manville in our honours.
Please note The Goslings are based on films seen by The Popcorn Junkie editor Cameron Williams in 2011.
