Julianne Moore, or "Maude" as we like to call her is winning an award at the 2009 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. She has earned herself the Montecito award which is given to "a performer who has given a series of classic and standout performances in his/her career." I think her roles in the Coens' The Big Lebowski and P.T. Anderson's Boogie Nights and Magnolia are more than enough to warrant an award, but those of you who are fans know she's done so much more than just that. Moore boasts 62 acting entries on IMDB and that's nothing to bat an eye at. Along with films, she has successfully acted in televesion as well. In fact, you might have noticed her on 30 Rock last week playing and old flame of Jack Donaghy.

Some roles I think you should definely check out include:

  • Maude in The Big Lebowski
  • Linda Partridge in Magnolia
  • Amber Waves in Boogie Nights
  • Julian in Children of Men
  • Clarice Starling in Hannibal
  • Sarah Harding in The Lost World: Jurassic Park
  • Ruthie in Benny and Joon

These are just out of some of her roles I've seen.  There are plenty of others she is lauded for that I have not seen.  Sounds like I have some homework in store for me.  One of those would be her role of Charley in the recently released film The Single Man.  In fact, there's talk of her being nominated for Best Actress.  If that indeed happens, this could be a big Oscar year for us Achievers with talk of Jeff Bridges for Best Actor in Crazy Heart and Fred Melamed for Best Supporting Actor in A Serious Man.

Moore will be given the Mantecito Award on Thursday, February 11th 2010 at the historic Arlington Theatre.  If you're interested in attending, tickets discounted at 20% will go on sale December 31, 2009.  Check out the article linked below for more information.
