Oscars,Broads and Burgers!

This year proves yet again to be a tough call for the best of the best when it comes to the Oscars and as a 40 something year old woman myself, I am glad to see older women being represented in film  in all their Goddess glory  so but of course I will only be focusing on those actresses whom I consider “Broads”

Sally Field has had a long and rewarding career first starting out as Gidget in the TV series of the same name in the 60’s.  52 years later she has become and is a fine example for other gracefully aging women..proving that women are much more interesting and dynamic with layers and layers of emotion that comes with experience and loving the skin you’re in..and not afraid to show it or their laugh lines..This year she  is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal  as Mary Todd Lincoln,the First Lady of the United States, to Daniel Day- Lewis’ President Abraham Lincoln. She dominates every scene and even when she ‘s not on the screen her presence can be felt.

Go Sally! and keep going!

Then there is Naomi Watts.  ok.. she hasn’t been on the planet for as long as Sally but she still embodies what it means to be a Broad.She’s always chose very diverse roles from one extreme to the other,from dramatic to comedy.I’ve always been a big fan of her work.Recently,I saw her in J.Edgar Hoover and didn’t know it was her until the end.She’s a chameleon and in my opinion underrated..so this year, at the age of 44, for her to be nominated for Best Actress for The Impossible, well I say, it’s about damned time! Look for her this coming year in Two Mothers playing with another of my favorite actresses,Robin Wright who have love affairs with each others sons.

Talk about being fearless and pushing boundaries! Like I said she’s a Broad.

And then there is Emma Stone,at the age of 25 yrs she’s the youngest of the Broad bunch who is co-hosting the award show with Seth MacFarlane. OSCAR-2013-Promo-Poster-01

If it’s possible,I would like to nominate Seth as an Honorary Burger Broad.

Emma has mostly done comedies in her short life/career and even though I haven’t seen it yet,I’m sure her role as  Grace Faraday in Gangster Squad will show that she is much more than a comedy gal. She also likes cheeseburgers:) her favorite place to munch  in L.A is Apple Pan, a legendary eat-in restaurant that has been around since 1947 that is  known for its apple pies but it also  serves up meals like the Hickory Burger and the Steak Burger.

So that pretty much sums up this years Broads at The Oscars but it goes without saying,  always Meryl Streep <see this link where she is Seussified!)

MirrenBurgerDM2702_468x465 and Helen Mirren are and always will be quintessential Broads.

So what exactly is a Broad? This is how We define it.
