Julia Roberts Career Tribute After Fourth Oscar Nomination: Video

EXCLUSIVE: With last week’s Supporting Actress nomination for August: Osage County, Julia Roberts earned her fourth Oscar nom. She’s been named once before in the category for Steel Magnolias (1989) and twice for lead actress — for 1990’s Pretty Woman and of course her Academy Award-winning performance in 2000’s Erin Brockovich.  But it has been 13 years between nominations. When she was honored with the Spotlight Award at this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival, organizers put together an entertaining reel that spans the breadth of her career that bookends those supporting nominations for Magnolias and August. Looking at it you see what I would call the definition of a modern movie star.  Here it is:

  1. are we giving her award for past work. In that case vote me in. If it’s for augustus, still haven’t seen it. hope to soon.

  2. Julia deserves to win her 2nd Oscar for August: Osage County. She gave the best performance out of the five nominees and hopefully academy members vote for Julia. If more people had seen the film she would be the expected front runner.

  3. Julia is the best!
    So talented, so luminous, an actress and a star!
    Love her! She really deserves to win that Oscar, she was brillant on August: Osage County.
    Brings us much more Jules!

  4. her acting skills are underestimated. she was terrific in august. she had such a bubbling anger but still controlled for the screen and not the stage. wonder why they didnt include clips from closer (which she should have been nominated for) and duplicity (which i found to be a smart and admirable comedy even if it fell under the weight of its cleverness).
