She's not young and sexy.
She did get a BAFTA nom so there's a chance she'll get in instead of Kunis.

people blame her for starting the plumped lip trend.%0D %0D young and sexy doesn't exactly describe Melissa Leo by the way.

Her character made me wonder how a woman with no visible means of support could afford so much bad plastic surgery. %0D %0D I mean, was it actually done in a back alley for cash, or did she inject her problem areas with cooking oil herself?%0D %0D

R3, that's shocking. I've never had surgery or chemical injections.

It's too bad that her plastic surgery is her running theme, because she actually gave a good performance. It's funny how someone mentions something, and then everyone else has to add their twist to it - the cultural meme for BH is her bad plastic surgery, nothing else. It's been said already. Can we just be done with it and move on? You're not making any unique observations by continually bringing it up.

I'm sure having a much younger boyfriend had something to do with it. As others have noted, it's a shame she fucked up her face since she is a very good actress.

If she'd left her face alone, I'm sure she'd be an attractive older woman. AND would probably get a lot of work offered since she's a very good actress. As she looks now, her deformed looks make it difficult to cast her.

" the cultural meme for BH is her bad plastic surgery, nothing else. It's been said already"%0D %0D But I didn't know who she was when I saw the film. I sat there thinking "Who's the woman with the bad plastic surgery? She looks kind of familiar, I wonder who she used to be..."%0D %0D I didn't recognize her until about an hour into the film, so there.

"the cultural meme for BH is her bad plastic surgery"
It's true. First thing anybody says when her name is mentioned is, she's the one her got those lip injections, right? It's a shame, because she really is a good actress. I think Nicole K. is eventually going to escape having the same fate, because she still looks good and she (so she says) is laying off the botox.

What's the category: Best Impersonation of Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest? She was so far over the top, like a sledge hammer.

Posters like R6 who use expressions like "cultural meme" should be banned from DL for their "cultural asswipery."

Her character was written and directed as a cartoonish caricature, like Winona Ryder, the French guy, and most of the others. I guess she did what she could with it, but it's probably too ham-handed even for an Oscar.

Love the scene where she is threatening to put the pink cake in the bin in a huff, "Then it's garbage" fave scene!

She looked ghastly in Black Swan. I hadn't seen her in films for a while and was taken aback. Oh well, can't be 21 forever... Here she is in a better light (wig?).

Well, we'll always have that first shot in HANNAH & HER SISTERS of her old face, if we have nothing else to remember her former glory by.

It actually made sense that BH's character had had a lot of plastic surgery done. She was obviously conflicted about giving up her career, witnessed in how she often switched off from being her daughter's coach to being her daughter's competitor. Of course she would try to preserve her "youth," quixotic though the quest was.

Is their anyway we can complain to the Academy about asking for a last minute nomination for Hershey? I think it's valid, who do we talk to?

BARBARA HERSHEY has played a variety of interesting roles. She is terrific, i like seeing Barbara in a movie.
I absolutely adored her in 'The Portrait of a Lady'. What a villain! A very very very interesting one, full of charm and mystery...
She also gave incredible performances in 'A Killing in a Small Town' and in 'Shy People'
I also liked her a lot in 'Lantana'. She has played in many good movies actually. I'll mention the 'Hannah and Her Sisters', 'Falling Down' and 'Beaches' as well.
She is charming in her movies.
And yes, i liked her in 'Black Swan' too!

Was it CGI that gave the character of Albert Nobbs that slightly feminine edge? There were a couple scenes I actually believed the part was being played by a real woman! Amazing work, G.

R42, it's a rather disturbing film, especially that scene. But Catherine Burns' (in an Oscar-nominated performance) does extraordinary character work that is well worth the watch. She has a very haunting monologue. I think it's on YouTube.
