    I saw I Am Love yesterday, and it’s an absolutely glorious performance by Swinton, as usual. She also gave a great performance last year in Julia and was completely ignored. Is there a sentiment among the Academy that, “oh, well she already has an Oscar, that’s enough”?.

    ‘I Am Love’ has me feeling awkward. You know that horrible feeling when an actor you love gives a performance you’re kind of lukewarm on but the rest of the world seems to love? That’s me on Swinton in ‘I Am Love.’

    I mean, she cannot fail, the woman is a goddess. But, like that New Yorker reviewer commented, the performance kind of feels like a compound of some of her much stronger prior performances. To me it looks weaker by comparison. I don’t know. I just wasn’t really feeling it.

    If I ruled the Oscars, Tilda would already have god knows how many nominations, and three Oscars: 1 for Edward II, 1 for Michael Clayton, and 1 for Julia.
