Michelle Williams is “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week”
Michelle Williams broke into stardom on the teen series ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and later graduated to full-length features, most notably ‘Brokeback Mountain’ (2005), for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
In 2006 she appeared in ‘The Hawk Is Dying’ with Paul Giamatti. In 2007, she was in Ethan Hawke’s ‘The Hottest State’ and in Todd Haynes’ ‘I’m Not There’ with Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, and Julianne Moore. In 2008, she starred with Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman in the Marcel Langenegger film ‘Deception,’ and Martin Scorsese film “Shutter Island.”
Along with the Scorsese film, she shot four other films in succession. Independent filmmaker Kelly Reichardt’s ‘Wendy and Lucy’ was shown on September 27 and 28, 2008, at the New York Film Festival and opened on December 10, 2008. Williams was highly acclaimed, with some claiming the performance was her best yet. She is one of a “vivid ensemble cast orbiting around Philip Seymour Hoffman’s harried theater director” in ‘Synecdoche, New York,’ the first film directed by Charlie Kaufman, the screenwriter of ‘Being John Malkovich,’ ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.’
Two other films include director Lukas Moodysson’s ‘Mammoth’ with Gael García Bernal; and ‘Incendiary,’ which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008.
In 2009, Williams was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Williams will next be seen in the romance film ‘Blue Valentine’ with Ryan Gosling. For the Golden Globes 2011, she received a nomination for Best actress in a motion picture drama for her portrayal of Cindy in ‘Blue Valentine.’
Therefore, because of her superb performances including the Oscar worthy acting job she did in ‘Blue Valentine,’ we are proud to announce that Michelle Williams is our “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week.”
