Two Best Actress Contenders – Reese Witherspoon VS Julianne Moore 


The awards season is heating up and two names being mentioned for the Best Actress category are Reese Witherspoon for “Wild” and Julianne Moore for “Still Alice.” Who deserves Oscar glory? Is it Witherspoon, already an Oscar winner for “Walk the Line?” Or is it Moore, always nominated but never a bride? Take a look at my movie reviews of “Wild” and “Still Alice.”
