George Clooney And Viola Davis Prepare For The Oscars On Entertainment Weekly Magazine!


The race to the Oscars is on! And in preparation for that, Entertainment Weekly has released their newest issue with 2012 Oscar nominees George Clooney (The Descendants) and Viola Davis (The Help).
Viola Davis on The Help:
“First lead role ever in a movie. So it was my first time to really create a character from beginning to end. I’ve always just shown up and, whatever my lines are, I just do it, like almost robotic in a way. But this is the first time I felt a huge responsibility - to the African-American community, to the people who read the book. A lot was on our shoulders.”

George Clooney on the lack of leading roles for women in Hollywood:
“There’s this strange thing that’s happened over the last 25 or 30 years where there’s this decision being made that women aren’t able to carry the box office. Now, Bridesmaids has proved that to be bulls—, and The Help has proven it to be bulls—. But it’s much harder to get a film with a woman lead made. When a man hits 40 is when roles just begin to happen. And for women it doesn’t happen. I find that to be a very concerning issue.”
I'm betting my money on these two to win!
