Well, today's basically the last day of 2013 to enjoy my favorite activity: toying with Oscar history and making you read about it. Sigh!
Our final task is a particularly fun one. Let's take the acting winners from Sunday's ceremony, compare each of them to an Oscar winner of yore based on similar roles, similar Oscar speeches, and similar presences. I've got four Oscar-winning ancestors lined up with the four Oscar winners actors from last night. Can you come up with better matches? I dare you.
Both won Oscars for playing quirky loudmouths (Funny Girl, Silver Linings Playbook). Both won Best Actress at or before the age of 26. Both tripped on their way to the stage. Both enjoyed award-nominated breakthroughs at age 19 (The Tony-nominated I Can Get It For You Wholesale for Streisand, the Oscar-nominated Winter's Bone for Lawrence).
