This year’s Academy Awards nominations are on the mind of the actress who played a woman in a 1990s cult movie that got a movie festival into trouble.
Judy Garland, whose character in the movie, “Girlfriends Club,” became a sexual object of love for a group of men, is one of four actresses to win an Oscar for their work in the category “Best Actress,” with a nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.”
Garland’s film, a 1990 cult hit that went on to become a hit film, made more than $300 million worldwide and earned Garland a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her role.
Garland’s film also earned her a nomination in the Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Film Editing for the film’s original version.
While Garland has received awards for her work on “Grown Ups,” she has never been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, but that could change this year.
She is up against two other nominees, including Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, who also starred in “Grooms Club.”
“Grooms club” is nominated in the Best Actress category this year, alongside “Gentleman’s Agreement” and “The Piano Teacher.”
Other nominees in the “Best Film Editing” category include “An Inconvenient Truth,” “The Theory of Everything,” “Black Swan,” “Ida,” “Little Women,” “Moonlight,” “Muse” and more.
The best film categories will be announced on Jan. 20 at the 67th Academy Awards ceremony.
