Julianne Moore is a master of bringing to life real-life characters, whether they be a war-hardened crime-scene cleaner or a broken woman seeking to regain her sense of self after an affair. She plays such different characters in a variety of projects, including movies, TV shows and video games. Her extensive career has spanned parts of seven decades, starting out as a struggling young girl thrust into the entertainment industry by her parents’ tough but loving upbringing. As a child, Julianne Moore displayed talent that was so impressive that her early performances were often ignored, and in fact, she was scorned for speaking her mind.
This hardscrabble childhood also gave her a host of experiences that would shape her later acting career. At a tender age, Julianne Moore discovered she had an incurable inferiority complex, and this drove her to spend her life perfecting one skill: writing. It was a life-long ambition that would prove to be fruitless, however, as Julianne finally became a celebrated writer in her own right. Julianne Moore has since shown a passion for the written word, and in fact, there are some of her novels, which are dedicated to those who write them, and want them to reach the world. The strength of Julianne Moore’s work in films and on television has made her the toast of the town, although it’s her much more acclaimed play, The American President, which has earned her the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Other well-known actors with an impressive acting career include Goldie Hawn, Reese Witherspoon and Drew Barrymore.
A break in the acting world would find Julianne Moore portraying another iconic character in a science-fiction movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas (in which she again played the same role as Holly Golightly): in this film, Ms. Moore plays Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska. While not technically a science-fiction film, The Nightmare Before Christmas was panned by many movie critics for cribbing from a similar story premise, the aliens called Vrilians, who had abducted the President during a massive snowstorm. With the exception of a few brief mentions here and there, the plot of The Nightmare Before Christmas was essentially the same as that of the original book. The movie simply added a different twist to the tale, using the same characters and taking the tale in a different direction. Regardless, Sarah Palin still remains a beloved figure in the hearts of many Americans.
A more comedic acting career would also feature Ms. Moore as the sexy love interest of Brad Pitt, in the movie Money Talks. While the portrayal of the character ofMoney was cringe-worthy by many, it nevertheless managed to garner Ms. Moore an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, an honor that was shared by several other actresses of Hollywood who were less deserving of the award. Of course, one must take into consideration the limited Oscar recognition that Best Actor goes to performers who perform films with very mainstream themes. Nevertheless, Money Talks did become one of the highest grossing films of all time, paving the way for Ms. Moore to begin her own impressive acting career.
Finally, in terms of American television shows which have achieved success worldwide, one has to give thanks to Julianne Moore for playing the lead role in the groundbreaking drama entitled The Nanny Diaries. Set in the seedy underbelly of modern day Manhattan, The Nanny Diaries follows the daily life of the young daughter of an affluent family as she attempts to provide her mother with a better life. As the show progressed, many people across the globe discovered the unique story of Julianne Moore’s performance, which earned her an outstanding award at the 2021 Academy Awards. Ultimately, the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy or Drama went to Julianne Moore for her performance in The Nanny Diaries.
It must be noted that in case any American actresses are unable to win any awards at the Oscars this year, they should not feel disappointed. Over the years, there have been many movies and performances which failed to hit the greatness mark but have still managed to capture the hearts of movie lovers. In fact, American actors and actresses have bagged many of the top honors throughout the years including Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars, but no woman has managed to capture the coveted Golden Globe Awards for this year. Hence, instead of worrying about what else should be done to capture the biggest honor in their acting career, American actors and actresses should simply focus on enjoying their success instead. Once they realize how lucky they are, their appreciation will surely follow them all the way to their next Oscar award ceremony.
