Is Michelle Williams destined to be on the C-list for the rest of her life?
She's really not much of an actress. I've seen her in various films, and I say she's watchable but not much more than that. Easily forgettable in the acting department and astoundingly homely for someone in the entertainment industry. Her only claim to fame and only major accomplishment in life thus far is marrying her much more famous and talented husband Heath Ledger.
HL Troll: I am glad to see you are still alive, I was a bit concerned...mainly because I never thought I was going to be able to tell you I hope you fall into a vat of acid.
No one even cares about Hesth Ledger anymore. And I'm sure Hollywood cares more about her 3 Oscar nominations than some dead guy she had a baby with (they were never married).
F&F for you, troll.
I agree. She's bland.
R2 sure she was nominated, but so was Heath. But unlike Heath, she never [italic]won[/italic] an Oscar award.
Goop?!...Is that you?
I don't know, I liked her a lot in Meek's Cutoff and Blue Valentine.
But unlike Heath, she's still [italic]alive.[/italic]
She's excellent, what are you talking about? She tends to play the same sort of role a lot but so do most actors.
She does a beautiful performance in Wendy and Lucy and she carries the whole film by herself.
And the fact that OP is using the term "C-list" already says a lot about his or her shallow point of view.
I don't think she has any interest in being a *STAR* I think she is a serious actress who is interested in good parts. And I'm answering a troll, but I like MW a lot and her performances are always enjoyable and surprising.

Yes, because the wife in BBM was just like Marilyn Fucking Monroe.
Where do some of you people come from?
I feel bad for OP with the Heather obession.
I thought about JOn-Erik Hexum for a long time after he died. What a loss. So preventable if the prop department was on the ball.
Move on, OP.
Life is for the living.
I liked her until I saw her horrific and greatly overrated portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. That was painful.

Relax R12, I was saying she was good. And she does tend to portray intense, depressed women on the edge of a crisis. Marilyn Monroe was the exception.
Better a C-lister than a D-lister!
Michelle Williams was better than Ryan Gosling in Blue Valentine I thought. She's a quality actress.
They were both great.. But she really shined in that one..
I've always been bored with both her looks and acting.
I like her. She's the only current actor whose movies I choose to see because of her.
She exhibited zero star quality during the Super bowl halftime performance.
Simple fact: Michelle Williams murdered Heath in cold blood.
The Heath Ledger troll, not content until this meme becomes reality
Not every celebrity wants to live their life in the circus of the A-list. I respect that.
She was fantastic in "Wendy & Lucy", she made me cry.
There's a long list of really bad actresses out there who get work because they are on their knees in front of that fug smelly monster Harvey Weinstein, so STFU, OP. Why not discuss actresses who suck, literally?
Not every actress has to be breathtakingly beautiful, sometimes it's actually about the acting. Imagine that?!!

Never say never. She hasn't died, so chances are she could still be nominated again and even win.
As a longtime Marilyn Monroe fan, I think she was exquisite as Marilyn. She really did capture the insecure and unstable Norma Jeane that I've read so much about in her biographies. Those who object to Williams' performance are only looking at the surface and only know her as the sex symbol with the wiggle walk and girlish voice. That was not Marilyn. It was an act. The private Marilyn was more like Williams' portrayal -- laughing and giddy at times, depressed and distant at others. Yes, she didn't look EXACTLY like Marilyn, but that didn't bother me. I think she captured her essence perfectly.
I think Michelle will win, why she's the hottest actress around except me and the one who won lead, Jennifer something.

Oh, puhlease, Mr. "long time Marilyn Monroe Fan". I know a few things about Marilyn (and acting) myself.
Much of that film was supposed to be Marilyn's sexy "public" persona and Williams didn't capture any of that. She didn't come across as authentic at all.
I like her films, i enjoyed one of her earlier films, a comedy set in the nixon era, don't remember the name but it was funny!
The OP is destined to be Z-list for the rest of his life.
She can do comedy too. She was very funny in DICK and THE BAXTER.
I never thought about her much except for she was that girl from Dawson's Creek. Then I saw her in Brokeback, she was an absolute revelation. That scene where she catches them kissing is some of the finest acting you will ever see. Period. For that scene, which lasts all of a minute, she captures every single nuance and runs the gamut of emotions, and she does it all without a single word, it's all on her face.
I kind of hope so. I can't help it. I never liked any of her characters.
R33, I think the undercurrents and overt expressions on her face when Ennis comes over to have dinner with her, the kids and her new husband take the cake. A total master class and proof that there are no small parts.
She's higher than C. She was terrific in Blue Valentine, and held her own with Heath in Brokeback.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
