A Class Act

We here at Stage-Notes are so happy that Broadway's Jessica Chastain won Best Actress - Motion Picture Drama for Zero Dark Thirty at the Golden Globes last Sunday (Jan. 13).  Visibly moved, she gave a heartfelt and classy acceptance speech.  Incidentally, she also won Best Actress at the Critics Choice on Thursday (Jan. 10) and like a true theatre nerd, quoted Brecht!  To view that acceptance speech, click here

We wish her all the luck this awards season!

Here's a clip of her in the Golden Globes Press Room Q & A.  OK, I admit that I am biased but just listen to her answers.  So insightful, intelligent and answered with poise.  If you can't hear the questions, they are:

>  how would she respond to the movie creating controversy
>  where does she think Maya goes
>  what were her struggles as an actress that she eluded to in her acceptance speech -- even answering this she gets teary eyed
>  reaction to Jodie Foster's speech
>  reaction to her Oscar nomination and Kathryn Bigelow snub
>  How she interpreted Maya
>  How she selects roles
>  What was Kathryn Bigelow's reaction to the Oscar snub
