Telluride: Hilary Swank Angles for Another Shot at Oscar With ‘The Homesman’

14 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Hilary Swank already has two best actress Oscars on her shelf, for Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), which is something that only 12 other women have ever been able to claim. But, having only just turned 40, she is not resting on her laurels. Since her second win, in 2005, she has pursued a number of projects that were clearly intended to be awards bait, but that failed to resonate with voters: The Black Dahlia (2006), Freedom Writers(2007), Amelia (2009) and Conviction (2010).

Zero Gain: Ales Kot talks about Zero

Trevor Hogg chats with Ales Kot about comics and the creation of Edward Zero...

“What is an artist?” asks Ales Kot. “If anything done sufficiently well is art, then I certainly come from a family of artists. My mother was a social worker and became an interior designer; her mother worked at the post office most of her life and her father worked as a steel worker, an army specialist, and a truck driver. My father worked as a miner, then sold steel and then built up a soccer club; his father worked on a high position in a steel factory and taught physics and mathematics while his mother worked in a store selling food most of her life. Thankfully, I was always encouraged to read and write and think on my own, at least by certain members of the family.” Kot believes, “Any merger of visuals and text is comics. »
