    Round 3 - Bracket 3

    Sarah Polley

    vs.

    Franka Potente


    Round 3 - Bracket 4

    Nicole Kidman

    vs.

    Gong Li



    Actress triva:


    When Sarah Polley was 12, during the first Gulf war, she attended a children's awards show in Washington, DC, and was seated at a table with some representatives from the Walt Disney Company. They asked her to remove a peace symbol that she was wearing but she refused. Disney has blacklisted her ever since.

    Ullman

    Rampling
    so tough... I could easily have put McDormand here and might have if not for the fact that I just watched Rampling in "Sous le sable" last weekend, and saw McDormand in "Friends with Money" the weekend before. That's basically putting one of Rampling's alltime great roles and performances against a rather small and single-dimensional role for McDormand (who performed it wonderfully, but hadn't much meat to work with).
