Is she the favorite to win the Emmy?
Julianne Moore looks AMAZING as Sarah Palin in Game Change.

When the clip first showed Ed Harris I was convinced it was John McCain.
The preview reminds me of Recount complete with its ditzy Katherine Harris played by Laura Dern. I can see the teabaggers complaining about how liberals shit all over their women in politics. Keep giving us dipshits like Palin, Harris and Bachmann and you may learn the connection eventually.

Even though I cannot stand Palin and McCain, I might watch it. R1's right, Ed Harris looks exactly like McCain.

Why can't we all just forget about Sarah Failin? Shame on Julianne for even accepting this role. It's only going to give that freak Failin more attention.

It should. It's by the same people.

I'm going to respectfully disagree with the OP.
I said this on the Game Change casting thread months ago, but IMO it bears repeating. There's a 'ripeness' about Sarah Palin that Moore cannot replicate. She looks like a piece of fruit about to burst its skin. Boobs, hips, full red lips - repulsive as she is, it's why she's such a wet dream for so many Rethugs (and men in general). Even Tina Fey's otherwise dead-on impression of her doesn't include this aspect, because Tina Fey doesn't have it either. But it's an important, if largely unspoken, part of her appeal.
Julianne, on the other hand, is too skinny, too delicate, too East Coast neurotic for the part. Moore is a terrific actress, that's not in question. But she's physically wrong for the part.

So who you pick, R7? What did you think of Gina Gershon as Palin in the Funny or Die videos?

Who would be your choice R7?

I'm so used to seeing Tina Fey as SP that my first reaction to seeing Julianne Moore is that she's not as good. She's not even trying to match the accent.

The only thing she's missing is a butt.

I love this description, R7. Much as I hate Palin, she is a great looking woman. I can't think of anyone contemporary who could play her. Maybe Mariska. Raquel Welch would have been perfect back in the day.
I wonder how they'll disguise that weird sloped forehead of Moore's. I guess that's what the bangs are for. I can't see Moore being able to pull this off. She's too much of a city girl for the role.

Is it going to be on HBO? I can't wait to see it.

I disagree, and I'm not saying that just because I don't like her. I think she looks like a geek.

It's all subjective, R15. I consider Palin to be far better looking than Julianne Moore.

You are an idiot if you think Juliana Moore can't do this...she'll be perfect. What's the matter with you jerk-offs?

Sarah Palin is tacky and dumb. Julianne Moore is intelligent. Who is better looking? It is obvious - Julianne Moore, seriously.

Something weird just happened. I clicked on OP's link and when it took me to YouTube, there was no sound on my iPhone and there was. I sound bar at the bottom of youtube's screen, as there normally is.
So I checked a few other YouTube vids and none of them have sound or a sound bar.

It looks like her bottom jaw is paralyzed. Her bottom lip barely moves in some scenes while she's talking.

Maybe because Juliane Moore actually lived in Alaska and knows Sarah's is an affectation.
Sarah did not have "that accent" before she was picked by McCain.

The real standout in that movie is Sarah Paulson.
Do see the movie.
