I’m Just Sayin’ – Shirley MacLaine Shouldn’t Get the Golden Globe

I was just checking out the Golden Globe nominations and I am in shock and disbelief that Shirley MacLaine was nominated, for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television, for her portrayal as Coco Chanel in the made-for-tv movie of the same name.  Really?  Is she that deserving? If I remember correctly, she was in about 15 minutes of the film. Her dialogue consisted of reciting a string of quotes attributed to Coco Chanel. And, the icing? She didn’t even have a French accent! When Coco Chanel premiered I was pretty vocal about how disappointing MacLaine’s portrayal of Chanel was. To see her nominated for such an uninspiring performance is almost insulting. I’m just sayin’.

  1. i completely agree! the only thing i remember her doing was draping a curtain or something around the model in the beginning of the movie and nervously smoking a cig. my grandma could’ve done that.
