The Red Carpet is sometimes more fun and creates more buzz and tweets than the actual Oscar awards.  The financial benefits of having a specific designer mentioned by a star on the Red Carpet can mean millions for the brand. The Red Carpet is FREE MARKETING.  Advertising dollars today are fragmented so determining the best ROI (Return On Investment) for promotion the concept of people tweeting, posting, pinning and sharing with their friends in social media what happens on the Red Carpet is of extreme importance to the stars and the brands they are representing on the walk.

  4. Judi Dench for “Philomena”
  5. Meryl streep for “August: Osage County” 

Meryl Streep is the Cosmic pick for Best Actress for her role in August: Osage County.  

August: Osage County  shows the vulnerable raw emotions of many personality types found in families all around the world.

The film is an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony winning play by Tracy Letts.   Watching the riveting dysfunctional family yelling and degrading each other was reminiscent of watching Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.”  The intensity, the reality, the total immersion into the anxiety of the situation will take you to an emotional place that either you can learn from or will be terrified because of the reality that is being portrayed.

Family mental issues sometimes seem to be the “Mothers” fault and Meryl Streep portrays is the the ultimate “mom mess” sharing absolutely no FUN with this dysfunctional family.    She says “I am truth telling and some people are antagonized by the truth.”    The dad, Sam Shepard drank and the mom, Meryl Streep, self medicated with pills to get through life with the children being collateral damage. The parents thought they were doing their best to provide for the kids and what they did was for them.

The film covers:

  • Depression
  • Prescription drug addiction
  • Suicide
  • Death
  • Alcoholism
  • Incest
  • Resentment
  • Rape
  • Adultery
  • Aging

Love it or hate it August: Osage County has a message everyone can learn from.  The viewer will find characters and situations they can relate to and might even inspire some behavior modification from.

Meryl Streep provides an Oscar winning performance for Best Actress in a Leading Role.  

See you at the 86th Annual Oscars Awards on Sunday March 2, 2014 7 pm EST and 4 pm PST.

  1. Meryl Streep and Judi Dench both nominated for Best Actress. That’s cruel! We should have not to choose between these two awesome ladies!!! It’s not fair!!!! I want them both to win!!! Is there any way to make that happen?? Pay somebody under the table or something. :)

    • Fun idea… 2 winners.. and you are right.. all very talented nominees! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.. yes very funny!

  2. You’re right, Meryl played the matriarch as the mess of all mothers. Unfortunately I know a mom who also has a prescription pill and “wine” problem. Along with the same narcissism and selfishness that Meryl provided us with a look at through the film’s “eyes”. The interesting thing is when all 3 daughters left her. The film left me wondering one thing: Did Julia Roberts see that she was turning in to her mother and realize she had to address the problem and change before winding up alone (and the reason for her not going back?) or will she continue the same path of sociopathic self love?

    • Carine… great thoughts and that is what the film does.. makes us think.. who are we turning into.. are we the bad mom. Then the key is.. did we get the message. Thanks for stopping by Whats cooking!
