Best actress?

January 5, 2009 |  8:32 am


Film critics love to do wacky things when voting for awards, so you shouldn't be too surprised that a member of the National Society of Film Critics nominated Eve — Wall-E's robot galpal — as best actress. That's the category where most mischief lands. In recent years, various wags at the New York Film Critics Circle nominated Bianca, the blow-up sex doll from "Lars and the Real Girl," and Tom Cruise ("Vanilla Sky") as lead actress contenders. Yes, that's right, actress.
