    Why does Kidman look so weird in the pictures? I mean I love this woman but she looks nothing like either Lucille Ball or Nicole Kidman?

    Lucille Ball’s Daughter Defends the Casting of Nicole Kidman as ‘I Love Lucy’ Icon

    There seems to be a lot of discussion about Nicole Kidman [and people saying] it should be Debra Messing…I don’t know, but here’s the deal and what you should understand: We’re not doing a remake of ‘I Love Lucy.’ No one has to impersonate Lucy Ricardo [or do] any of the silly things. It’s the story of Lucille Ball, my actual mother — not Lucy Ricardo — and her husband, Desi Arnaz, my dad — not Ricky Ricardo.

    Considering that the plot of the film will follow “a crisis that could jeopardize their careers and another that could end their marriage,” I would not be surprised with Sorkin if he depicts when Lucille Ball was put on trial in 1953 and accused of being a communist.

    Adding to this, by all accounts she was a very serious woman completely unlike her onscreen persona.

    New set photos from Tuesday: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9523281/Nicole-Kidman-Javier-Bardem-play-Lucille-Ball-Desi-Arnaz-set-Ricardos.html

    I take back my earlier comments regarding the make-up job on Kidman. These new photos show that they did a better job than I thought.

    Kidman VS Blancett Australian rivalry dunno why Blancett fans think that shes the best and suit for every role….LOL…i used to love Blancett but after she did Manifesto what a show off acting style it made throwing up just too much overacting Kidman got statue that she’s one of the highest paid actress among Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, J-Law

    Blanchett knows how to have fun actually. It’s an art installation. Actually, I think while Blanchett is a masterful actor, Kidman shows more range in terms of genre. She also has shown acting up to the edge of her capability, just like Huppert. Blanchett is quite different since she more regularly works on stage (Kidman too, but less regularly). In the end, I think they’re supportive of each other.

    So has it been confirmed yet if this film will be released this year or are they holding off until next year’s awards season?

    Okay so apparently Being the Ricardos had its first test screening last night in LA so it looks like it will be released this awards season.

    The best actress competition already feels like it’s packed so Nicole Kidman will need to do some great work in this film to get a nomination this year.
