Oscar Contest Giveaway – Day 2

oscrYesterday they closed down a section of Hollywood Boulevard so they can start building all the crap for the Oscars. If you remember, last year, this made my walk from the train to my job a hassle because I worked on Hollywood Boulevard. This year, I’m working on Sunset Boulevard, which is right below Hollywood Boulevard and that means that all the traffic from Hollywood will be filtered onto Sunset, hence making my commute to work a hassle once again. So, thanks for the inconvenience Hollywood Oscar circle jerks!

Today’s contest category is for “Best Actress,” and I can’t really weigh in here because of the five actresses nominated, I only saw one of the performances. I think Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty is favored to win because she won the Golden Globe for Best Drama, but Jennifer Lawrence also won, so who knows? I only saw Jennifer Lawrence and I thought she was good, but she also annoys me a little bit, so I don’t really care who wins this category.

1. Who is your Oscar prediction for Best Actress? 

(Jessica Chastain – Zero Dark Thirty, Quvenzhané Wallis – Beasts of the Southern Wild, Naomi Watts – The Impossible, Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook,  Emmanuelle Riva – Amour)

2. What do actress Jessica Chastain, a former Oscar winner for Best Actress, and a Stephen King character have in common?

(This one is kind of hard and if you get it, I will be really impressed)

Bonus question:

3. If I could play any character, it would be someone crazy….which of these crazy characters would you like to play the most?


Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction

Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest

Kathy Bates in Misery

Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?


Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver

Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs

Jack Nicholson in The Shining

Anthony Perkins in Psycho

Last year’s winner for Best Actress: 


I’m the best!! I should win every year….








Former winner:

Remember when I got hysterical when I won? Look at me!

Remember when I won and got hysterical on stage?  Look at me!








Former winner:


Does my mouth look big to you?

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

  1. Kal says:

    1. Quvenzhané Wallis, because her first name alone is worth 34 points in Scrabble.

    2. The link is the “character” of Misery Chastain, the character Annie Wilkes loves so.

    3. Can I go off-list here? Peter O’Toole as Jack, the 14th Earl of Gurney, in “The Ruling Class”.

    • OMG!! Kal you guessed it right! I should’ve known you’d come on here with all your knowledge and give the correct answer 😀
      I never saw the Ruling Class but I love Peter O’Toole

      • Kal says:

        Aw, shucks. I’ve just got a head for names, that’s all….

        The Ruling Class is a polarizing movie; you’ll either completely love it, or sit there dumbfounded, asking “What in God’s name *is* this?” But if you’re a fan of Peter O’Toole, you’ve got a head start. He’s positively brilliant as a schizophrenic English lord, and there are also a host of great British character actors in the film (Alastair Sim, Graham Crowden, William Mervyn, Coral Browne, Harry Andrews, Carolyn Seymour, Arthur Lowe.) If you ever get a chance to check it out, prepare yourself for a jet-black comedy … then dive in. And after you’ve watched it, let me know what you thought of it!

      • No, Kal. You know a lot of things I know about music, etc..and I wondered if anyone would know Misery well enough. I love that you do 😀 I’ll put that movie on my list too

  2. Mary says:

    1 – Jennifer Lawrence
    2 – I have no idea but please tell me
    3 – Glenn Close in fatal Attraction – I thought this was her best role ever (I am not a Glenn Close fan)

    • Wow…I think everyone wants Jennifer Lawrence. Kal guessed answer 2. The character that Kathy Bates loved was named Misery Chastain in the movie and that is the last name of the nominated actress. I would LOVE to play her in Fatal Attraction…so fun 🙂

  3. klpeach323 says:

    1- Jennifer Lawrence.
    2- Something to do with Kathy Bates and Misery.
    3- How about Flea as one of the Germans in The Big Lebowski?

  4. the Elder Sister says:

    1.Well I have no idea about the Oscar (Hollywood’s self pat on the back) Nominations at all!
    2. They are both ugly?
    3. I would LOVE to play Faye Dunaway in Mommy Dearest!!!! ( Sometimes I feel like her when I want my kid to clean the bathroom) And Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs, so believably creepy!!!!

  5. Rachael H. says:

    1. Jessica Chastain
    2. Well since I saw Kal’s answer I’m going to go with a “same here” answer for this question.
    3. Glenn Close in fatal attraction for SURE!

  6. AnnaZed says:

    1. Jennifer Lawrence (unfortunately, I would give it to Quvenzhané Wallis)
    2. Misery Chastain (though other people already figured that out)
    3. I would love to play Joan Crawford in ‘Mommie Dearest’ just for the thrill of pounding on the board-room desk and saying ‘Don’t fuck with me boys, this is not my first time at the rodeo.’

  7. George Monkey says:

    1) Jennifer Lawrence

    2) Apparently, it’s Misery Chastain as stated above … but the other answer I had was that John Travolta dropped a whole bunch of pigs’ blood on both Jessica Chastain and Carrie … leaving both with stringy, greasy and overconditioned hair.

    3) I would be Anthony Hopkins in “Psycho.” Since that never happened. I believe you were looking for Anthony Perkins. Although, Kal is absolutely right about “The Ruling Class” — it’s one of my all-time favorites. You don’t see many musical/dark comedies concerning schizophrenia and British class structure anymore …

    • hahahahaha….did I put Anthony Hopkins instead of Perkins?? This is what happens when you write too early or too late. I’m LOLing about Travolta dropping pigs blood in their stringy hair….LOLOLOLOL!!!

  8. Kris says:

    1. Jennifer Lawrence, although Jessica Chastain was really good too! I go with Jenny Lawrence.
    2. Misery Chastain because of someone else’s comment…..had no idea on that weird question:)
    3. I would want to play Kathy Bates in Misery and even though I am a woman, Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs…..is that so wrong? 🙂

    I love the pictures of the actresses……LOL

  9. Theresa says:

    Jennifer Lawrence

  10. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    1. Jennifer Lawrence because she has really “stepped up her game” as an actress this past year.

    2. I’m gonna cheat and say Misery Chastain just like everyone else 😉

    3. I’d play Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest simply because I could relate.

  11. Y says:

    1. Quvenzhané Wallis has a cool first name.
    2. Search engine came up with Misery.
    3. Glenn Close to play with the soft bunny.
