blah blah blah hello everyone, my name is mayukh tralala and i thought it'd be nice if i ~*~shared my thoughts on film~*~. i, too, am indeed a closeted actressexual like many bloggers -- more specifically, i have a closeted fetish for best actress that i'd like to unleash upon all of you. i'm all for year-by-year dissections of the category's nominations, but, before i delve into that (hah), i'd like to do a countdown of my 20 favorite performances that lost the best actress oscar. i'm planning on doing write-ups/essays on each of them; i'll do more than simply list them. stay tuned!
