Best Actress Academy Awards Nominees: Michelle Williams

By SMW Staff

This Sunday, five women will get a shot of Oscar gold. They are all more than ready for their close-ups, as you’ll see from their profiles, here:

In Brokeback Mountain, Michelle Williams, the teen from Dawson’s Creek proved she was capable of subtly nuanced performances that aptly relayed the bittersweet sadness of her characters.

Critics’ favorite, Blue Valentine, is a movie that chronicles the disintegration of a marriage.

Needless to say, it is a perfect role for Williams, and, finally, she is given the star turn she deserves.

Here’s hoping the Oscar gods agree.
