    Patricia Arquette’s starring in a new CSI, plus she was just on Boardwalk Empire/won an Emmy for Medium, but she has Linklater’s Boyhood this year.

    Viola Davis is going more into TV these days

    She’s a two-time Oscar nominee. And mostly known for her nominated film work. She doesn’t count as a television actress winning an Oscar.

    Glenn Close?

    Her celebrity is from her film work which includes the five nominations from the eighties at the height of her popularity. She’s a film actress slumming in television.

    “Slumming in television” — this isn’t a Close role, but I don’t think there have been that many better parts for actresses in the last few years than Homeland’s Carrie Mathison. Some TV has been on par with the strongest films recently (though, sure, I still prefer film).

    Fair enough

    The broader point is that there are actors who might win Oscars ahead in part because of their TV work. Matthew McConaughey is a film actor who very well might have won his Oscar this year in part because of his concurrent TV work. That’s the spirit in which I include Davis and Close.

    I get that the more specific – people known almost entirely for TV – does cover a different group of people.

    Michael C. Hall is great actor, better than 90% of Oscar winners i think and I can see him making it big in film and win Oscar one day.

    ”Slumming in television”

    Television will never be as prestigious as Film. It is a snob’s attitude but one rooted in the reality that Film is simply more seductive. It is a medium that requires a single work within two to three hours to tell its entire story.

    I think attitudes are starting to shift a bit, especially with prominent talent moving in TV’s direction (and I say this as someone that has always preferred watching a film to a TV episode).

    Where Television is superior to Film is the opportunities in casting for older women and minorities. Since most series are ensembles they usually make space for all sorts of people to fill those spots. While Hollywood rather populate its stories with roles for men and almost exclusively white.

    A big factor for me is the lack of ads every six minutes. But alas, that is apparently changing. I dont go to films for the prestige factor or because they need to tell the entire story in a few hours. And I especially dont go so I can be told which phone company to use, which drug to pop, and which car to buy.

    Gawd I hate that.

    People often tell me they’d rather be at home where they’re comfy and can drink beer, without having to negotiate the outdoors, crowds, and high prices.

    O-kaaay then.

    As for the question, I have very little idea.

    Good points, though I think that in Margulies’ case, she didn’t exactly have the greatest film career after ER, which could have left a negative stigma, and her schedule on a network TV show probably limits her shooting opportunities. Though I heard she was pretty charming in City Island.

    Margulies was excelent in City Island, pitty that film did’t get much award success.

    Fey could win for writhing and producing. I don’t think she could win for acting, the academy usually ignores comedic performances, unfortunately.

    Anderson is amazing in The Fall. Haven’t seen House of Mirth, but I have read some excelent reviews for her performance, so it’s on my to-watch-list.

    Michael C Hall is another great actor. I do hope he gets some big film roles.[/quote]

    C.Hall was pretty fantastic in “Kill Your Darlings” and was also good in “Gamer”. In a weak year, he could’ve gotten in for ‘Darlings’.

    Gillian Anderson’s excellent work on British television and her penchant for smart independent films could lead to some attention with the right part (I like to think she received some well deserved votes for The House of Mirth in 2000)

    Absolutely! And don’t forget “Hannibal”. She is damn good in her guest starring role. Talk about embodying fear.
