Back Stage, January 28th – Permission To Make the More Dangerous Choice, by Joseph Pearlman.
The truth in acting is that 90 percent of the performance is the personality of the actor. Personality is the instrument—or clay—with which we can compose an infinite number of characters.The temptation to hide behind doctrine or technique is so seductive because it allows us a way to escape from the danger and fire of facing ourselves.Draw upon yourself, which means using your own perversions, flaws, moments of dishonesty, and manipulative qualities.Make a list of the attitudes, qualities, actions, feelings, or thoughts that are connected to a character that genuinely are not you. When you’re done with this list, take a long look at all the things on it and really be honest with yourself: are all of these aspects things which are not part of your personality or blood memory?With the attitudes and character traits that are completely foreign to you…find a way to embrace and adopt them so that you are in fact, making the most dangerous choice.

Variety, January 23rd – After Oscar Nominations, There’s No Clear Frontrunner, by Peter Bart.
Academy voters try to adhere to the organization’s myriad rules during Oscar season — except for the one barring them from talking about their vote. Academy members habitually chat about their likes and dislikes, but this year the most frequent topic is the lack of zeal for any specific film.This year’s Oscar race is among the most wide open in many years.Though film critics contend that 2013 brought forth some exceptional movies, Oscar voters aren’t launching crusades in support of any specific picture.
