The film fans amongst us will know that today is Oscar day, and while our Reese is not involved in this years ceremony (she might attend, I don’t know – I’ll keep you posted), I thought it would be fun to do something here to mark the big movie event. So I racked my brains for an Oscar special with a difference, and came up with a big Election update! Many people think that Reese was overlooked for an Oscar nomination for her performance as Tracy Flick in this movie, but not only that, it’s director, the great Alexander Payne, is nominated at this years ceremony for Best Director for The Descendants.

Reese says she has remained friends with Alexander Payne over the years, and even mentioned in her recent live iVillage chat that they had talked about working together again. Just last week she presented him with the Filmmaker Of The Year Award at the ACE Eddie Awards. Of their movie together, Reese thinks that it has a “wonderful sense of honesty and reality” and says it’s director has a “unique voice”. She recalls her casting in the movie, saying “We had this weird meeting, then suddenly, the next week he offered me the role. He’d only seen `Man in the Moon’ and he was sure I could do it! I didn’t want to call him and say, `That was nine years ago, things have changed a little.’ But it worked out.” To this day Alexander says he still receives compliments on Reese’s performance in the movie, and has said of his Election star “She’s going to be interesting for a long time”.

Tracy: “Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with you and ask for things, but now, I really must insist that you help me win the election tomorrow because I deserve it and Paul Metzler doesn’t, as you well know. I realize that it was your divine hand that disqualified Tammy Metzler and now I’m asking that you go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong so that I may carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.”

We’re sure Reese is rooting for him at tonight’s event, and he certainly deserves to be recognised for his funny, moving and relatable movie The Descendants. As well as that movie, Reese has also recently revealed that she loved The Artist and Beginners.

TRIVIA: Did you know? Director Alexander Payne wanted to associate Tracy Flick with straight lines, and Mr McAllister with circles. He admitted that he didn’t think he did that very well throughout the film.

I’ve updated the Gallery with lots of Election-related photos, including stills, posters, a promotional shoot and pictures from the premiere. Check out our still-a-work-in-progress filmography page for the movie to read some interesting trivia about the movie. And scroll further down this post for videos from a few interviews Reese gave for the movie plus a couple of trailers.

Enjoy all these Election updates! And as always, don’t be shy – if you have something to say/if you want to share your thoughts on this movie etc. then leave us a comment!
