Helen Mirren is The Queen (two in fact)

The new movie poster for the film The Queen looks awesome (previous post about the film here).

It'll be interesting to see how this film is perceived in Venice this week, especially Helen Mirren's performance as Queen Elizabeth II following the death of Princess Di.

I can't help but assume that Helen Mirren will get an academy award nomination for her performance in this modern-biopic.

And what if she wins? Wouldn't it be interseting, especially considering just last weekend she won the Emmy (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie) for playing Queen Elizabeth I in the TV movie Elizabeth I?

That would seem like quite an accomplishment to win awards for portrayls of Elizabeth I and Elizabeth II in the same life time, let alone the same year.

That picture is stunning! So much character and still so beautiful.

I was just thinking about her portrayal of Elizabeth I in the made-for-tv 2 parter (which was amazing and the Emmy richly deserved). I can't wait to see this film. Mirren never disappoints.

Helen Mirren is da bomb.

She's just delightfully evil in Excalibur.
