Winner of the Dean's World Blogad!!!

Wow, was it ever close!

There were some fun entries and several close to the top of the judgement. There were at least three I would have no problem crowning as the winner.

However, in the end, there can be only one.

Maria de Medieros played "Fabienne," the utterly clueless woman to Bruce Willis' "Butch," in Pulp Fiction. Medieros, played utterly against type in creating a pathetic character with whom male and female audiences were charmed. De Medieros, a Portuguese film director and actress, created a searing picture of a woman living exclusively for love and connection.
The winner: Hatcher.

This was a well-stated argument. It showed knowledge of the actress, her style and what she had to create to be believable. It was also an obscure choice, one clearly chosen just for this topic.

Hatcher, you can contact Dean by emailing him via his website, Dean's World.

Nice work.

Thanks! I can sure use the advertising, too!

I guess my choice was "chosen" to fit the contest, but then, you did ask for what I thought was the most impressive bit of acting was...

I'm still blown away by De Medieros' peformance. She was also in Harry & June, playing Anais Nin, and did equally credibily, I think.

I understand that she's going to be in something new--I haven't even heard a name of a film yet, though--but she's one of those performers that you really need to see every performance.

I only wish I knew Portuguese, so I could see some of her other film, as well as her direction.

I'm sure imdb.com will have the goods on her.

Again, thanks!

By the by,

I judged by simply rating how convinced I personally was be each answer. Yours surprised me, then in the midst of my surprise, convinced me too. Good pick.
