    ...why is it that recent best actress winners have to be in films where they do basically soft core porn and act like whores to win that award-last year, halle berry won the award for monster's ball, where she did a graphic scene that bordered on x rated and this year diane lane has the front runner buzz for being in a flick about a wife who cheats on her husband for no good reason other than she gets the itch, with similarly graphic scenes...

    Is writing scripts really getting THAT hard that screenwriters can only resort to graphic sex and foul language to grab attention???:shrug: :shrug: :confused:

    I haven't seen unfaithful-i watched monster's ball when it hit sat this month-almost turned it off when sonny shot himself, but DID turn it off when the sex scene hit, mainly because it was more trash than i cared to see-didn't go back for the end of the flick either...

    What on earth is wrong with sex? Either doing it or watching other people doing it. Almost everybody's doing it. Your parents probably did it. I would rather watch Halle doing it than watch someone eat with their mouth open or blow their nose into a nasty handkerchief.

    Yes, you are a prude. Send me all your movies that depict people having sex. ;)

    I know what you mean. These actresses seem to sell themselves to the studio. At the risk of upsetting some of our female readers, the whole thing comes down to one thing. Women will do anything if the price is right (of course men can be the same way). It's a pity that some actors and actresses lower their standards to be the "best" in the business.
