Who's ahead in the Best Actress race? Can anyone top Cate Blanchett? We're handicapping the odds.
Sure, I'm tough on movies, but sometimes I'm just another gushing, adoring fan. Such is the case with actress Catherine Deneuve, the stunning French actress who turns 70 today. Why do I love her so? Let me count the ways.
