Well, I saw “The Glorias” early this morning. I had to wait until midnight to see it, so I don’t think I got to bed until about 3 a.m. Bette is terrific, as always, and captured the spirit of Bella Abzug. She certainly provides the dynamic the movie needs. Not sure of the time frame, but Bette’s character appears in about the last hour of the film, and is in maybe 4 or 5 scenes–all with Julianne.
The last I saw on “Awards Daily” which is a website like “Gold Derby”, they had Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander as Oscar potentials in the Supporting Actress category, which I found rather odd. Even with four different actresses playing Gloria Steinem at various ages, Julianne Moore should clearly be in the leading role category. I might also say the same for Alicia Vikander as they seem to share about the same on-screen time. Bette was very good, but I’m not sure her part would be considered large enough for award consideration. Thank God she showed up, though. The movie really needed Bette’s energy. So far, the IMDB score is not being very kind, with Metacritic thankfully much better. The reaction all around, with Bette’s performance seems very good. Bette’s on a roll, and I’m loving it.
