Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin, Game Change Julianne Moore may not get an Oscar nomination early next year, but she seems to have an Emmy nod — probably the award itself — guaranteed thanks to her performance as U.S. vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin in the HBO movie Game Change. As the v.p. selected to run alongside Republican presidential candidate John McCain, Palin was a source of outrage, disgust, mirth, horror, and/or worship, depending on one's point of view: far-right Christian or secular liberal, Tina Fey / Saturday Night Live fan or non-fan. This year, Game Change not only earned Moore great reviews, but according to The Hollywood Reporter it has also become HBO's most successful movie — 2.1 million viewers — since Joseph Sargent's Something the Lord Made (2.6 million in May 2004). That's quite a contrast from the Sarah Palin documentaries that, whether pro or con, bombed miserably at the North American box office last year. »
