    Marilia Pera, who played the prostitute on Pixote, won the National Society of Film Critics and Boston Society of Film Critics (as lead). She was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress at NYFCC. Did she really had a chance? Did she finished at least on the Top 10?

    What do you think of Marilia’s performance in the GG nominated film Pixote?

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I thought she was excellent and would’ve made a worthy supporting winner. The film was unjustly snubbed for BFLF, too.

    If justice existed in the world, Marilia Pera and Sonia Braga would have already been nominated for an Oscar (Pixote and The Kiss of the Spider Woman)

    She probably was 6th. The movie was very popular with critics and in the industry and they do like nominating foreign actors. Plus, her performance was all-caps AMAZING. Can’t believe she was snubbed for Elizabeth fricking McGovern who not only did nothing in Ragtime, but was also terribly miscast.

    Curious why you think she was miscast? Nastassia Kinski was supposed to play the part but Milos Foreman (her boyfriend at the time!) decided her English wasn’t good enough for the part. Don’t know much about the real Evelyn Nesbitt so curious to hear your take.

    I thought she was far too skimpy for the role and not mature enough for such a tragic character. Kinski would have done a great job with sucha role.
