    @MacMadame... I was referring to the roles she's chosen over the last few years. Her instincts are really good; she takes roles that allow her to develop her craft. She's not afraid to step out of her comfort zone.

    not sure how to explain it then.. I'm not the only one - Jimmy Carter.. some of the U.S. staff at that time.. The Canadian staff.. all have issues with the lack of accuracy of the movie.. but not to take away from the 'movieness' of it.. as a movie it was excellent and Affleck is obviously also a great talent..

    I liked Silver Linings Playbook a lot - more htan anything else I saw. Tied with Argo. I'm such a sap

    I also thought the role of teh Canadians in Argo was very clear.

    It really is. The eonline pics didn't have the designer's name, though.

    I can't see how Quentin Tarantino is going to lose best original screenplay.

    OK, so I actually really liked the movie. That said, I also really liked Tony Mendez's book account (he was the CIA agent). It wasn't quite as "dramatic" as the movie version but no less captivating, and went into more detail on the behind-the-scenes planning (and gave the Canadians, among others, a lot of credit on their roles helping the hostages).

    The movie is completely inaccurate if you read the book. But it does give credit to the Canadian ambassador.

    They did leave out some of Canada's role however I do think the movie said the Canadian ambassador was a hero.. I think though this was the US government wanting the CIA to get some of the credit they didn't before. However, I think the British and some of the other embassies have FAR more to be upset about. The film said the British embassy turned them the way it was not the case... They hid for awhile and then it was decided unsafe because the students were at the British embassy. New Zealand apparently didn't help either, which in real life they did. One guy took refuge for awhile at the Swedish embassy. But was eventually united with the others in the Canadian embassy partly because they all felt it would be far easier for the person to blend in as a Canadian than as well a Swede.

    But based on the comments that came before yours, you could have been referring to her acceptance speech.

    K-Stew would look pretty if she owned a comb.
