Rule 5 Oscars+

Been a while since I put up a Rule 5 post. Busy, busy, busy.

I thought I’d put a little Oscar eye candy out there for y’all. Let’s start with the Best Actress nominees.

And the Oscar goes to…

Patricia Arquette!

Now, if you notice, there’s one image here that falls just a bit short in the Rule 5 department: Meryl Streep.

She is without doubt the finest and most heralded American actress of the last half century; in my opinion, only Kate Hepburn comes close. But I also think that what aids her tremendous range is her Everywoman quality. She can do everything precisely because of her average appearance. In short, she’s just not Rule 5 material.

So with that in mind, here’s the plus: two of her co-stars from Into The Woods.

Emily Blunt:

…and Anna Kendrick (because, Anna Kendrick! Duh.):
