A new Highlight Reel™ vote
So the Madonna Highlight Reel™ vote gave a plurality to "she sucks". So let's go with a different sort of actress.
It might be unfair to say that Emma Thompson is everything Madonna is not. Just because she's adorable and really good as an actress and writer, very funny, gets along with her family...
Okay, I take it back. It might be fair to say that Emma Thompson is everything Madonna is not.
So, let's see what the people think should be her Highlight Reel™ should be. Eight movies are listed, and the standard choices "too many good roles" and "she always sucks". I wouldn't be surprised if some folks have a favorite Emma Thompson movie or TV role that isn't listed. The episode of the Ellen Degeneres' sitcom where Emma Thompson admits to being born in Iowa is pretty high-larious, for example.
I know what I think the right answer is, but I'd like to see how my readers feel. Voting is open until the end of the month.
