    She’ll probably be nominated for an Oscar in 2014 for her role in August: Osage County.

    She is one incredibly talented lady. I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t notice her until she was in one of my fave movies (Paris, je t’aime) and she was so good in it that since then I have tried to watch other things she’s in.

    I became a fan of her during her run as the neighbor in The Riches (great show, btw) and have followed her ever since…especially Justified.
