Best Actress Nominees and Wine Pairings 2018
Middle Sister raises a toast to the Best Actress Oscar nominees!
What wine pairs best with each of these fabulous women?
Most of Frances McDormand’s characters march to a different drummer, just like Rebel Red. In this movie she portrays Mildred, a grieving mother who devises a provocative method to motivate the police investigating the unsolved murder of her daughter.
Girl & Dragon pairs perfectly for a movie about a girl and a lizard. As Elisa Esposito, Sally Hawkins plays a mute janitor whose lonely existence is transformed when she discovers a secret project in the government lab where she works.
As Tonya Harding, Margot Robbie plays the figure skater who first became famous for her athletic prowess and then infamous for her possible complicity in an attack on her rival. Mischief Maker is a perfect complement to this straight-shooting woman.
Saoirse Ronan plays Lady Bird McPherson, a high school senior who longs to break free from her hometown and her sometimes tumultuous relationship with her indomitable mother. She is smart and smart-alecy too, like our very own Smarty Pants.
Meryl Streep is the queen of drama. That’s why Drama Queen is the obvious choice for toasting to Meryl! She portrays the publisher of The Washington Post, Kay Graham, who must overcome her self-doubt while deciding whether to publish the Pentagon Papers at a critical juncture in the paper’s history.
