An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

Nominations Day

Hold the phone, put your tea down, stop the clocks – it’s here. The day we’ve all waited for. Oscar nomination day. We made it.

I’m sure you’ve seen the lists out there but I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t write MY own little list, would I? And to go with it – my picks of who I would like to see win 🙂
