Posted by David Ozanich — 10 Feb 2011
Have you been following the Melissa Leo Oscar-debacle? Silly question - of course you have. A brief summary in case you've been busy: Melissa Leo is an actress of a certain age. She's nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "The Fighter." She decided to hire her own photographer to take glamour shots and then personally paid for some of her own "For Your Consideration" ads in the Hollywood trades, bypassing studio-sanctioned publicity. This is simply not done!
Hollywood's been buzzing that the former front-runner for the award has shot herself in the foot due to this "tacky" display. Now the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot has emerged. Enjoy!
