Watch: The Bennet Girls that sing... (featuring music videos from Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Jena Malone)

Image
Which of these Bennet girls (P&P actressesKeira Knightley, Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone, Carey Mulligan, and Talulah Riley) can sing in real-life? All of them! And no, they're not singing as the Bennet girls in the videos compiled here, but you know what? They can all sing and could most definitely form an indie girl group (or play one in a movie), if they ever choose to...someday...in the near future. The first one I've heard was Talulah Riley (though I have yet to hear her sing as herself not in character) as Mary Bennet singing briefly in a scene at Netherfield Ball in Pride & Prejudice movie. According to director Joe Wright, it was her "singing live in front of all those people" in that particular scene in P&P movie. Then, I heard Keira singing briefly in her The Edge of Love movie and last year's Begin Again (in which she sang 6 of the tracks from the soundtrack including the Oscar nominated song Lost Stars). Next, it was Jena, as she actually ha…

Two-time Oscar NomineeKeira Knightley (nominated for Best Supporting Actress for ) looking gorgeous in a Valentino dress attended tonight's 87th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center, February 22, 2015 in Hollywood, California.

Unsurprisingly, Miss Knightley didn't win, as the expected winner Patricia Arquetteof Boyhood won.

Oscar NomineeRosamund Pike (Best Actress for Gone Girl) looking radiant in a custom made Givenchy red dress attended tonight's 87th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 22, 2015 in Hollywood, California.


UPDATE: Of course, not surprisingly, Rosamund's Best Actress category has not been announced yet as the award show is still on...lost to the expected winner Julianne Moore of Still Alice (which not many people have seen...). It should've been RP as she deserved to win for her incredible performance in GG. It would've been nice to be surprise, but all the acting categories this award season has been predictable and boring...no big upset nor surprises. Oh, well...Ros may have lost (better luck next time), but her amazing Amy performance was still unforgettable and a big winner (in my viewing) and her beautiful Oscar dress tonight slays the red carpet and is a winner too!

See several new photos and video of Rosamund looking gorgeous at the

Oscar NomineeRosamund Pikeattended the Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party presented by MaxMara, BMW, Tiffany & Co., MAC Cosmetics and Perrier-Jouet at Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails Friday, February 20, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Best of luck to Rosamund on tomorrow's Oscars! Though seeing as these award shows are always unfair (and always has been for years, especially with deserving nominees overlooked over less deserving ones winning most of the time), it's not surprising anymore. Ros hasn't won any big awards on recent televised award shows for her outstanding performance as Amy Dunne in the box-office mega-hit Gone Girl. I'm not hoping nor expecting her to win anymore (but it would be a lovely surprise, and an upset if she ever does, which is unlikely...but who knows, right?). I'm just so glad (and happy for her) she's nominated and recognized for her amazing performance, which is very well-deserved. Also, it's great that she's been …

Matthew Macfadyenin California?! Yes, he is and he's looking dapper and very handsome too in a black dark blue and white suit without a tie! He made a rare (and unexpected) pre-Oscar party appearance in Hollywood as he attended the GREAT British film reception honoring the British nominees of the 87th Annual Academy Awards at The London West Hollywood, yesterday (February 20, 2015) in West Hollywood, California.
Speaking of Matthew at a pre-Oscar party, I wonder if he bumped into his former Pride & Prejudice co-stars Keira Knightley and Rosamund Pike, both Oscar Nominees (Knightley for Supporting Actress inThe Imitation Game and Pike for Leading Actress inGone Girl) on this one (no pics yet of either Ros and Keira at this same event...though RP's been at a couple other Pre-Oscar parties, which I'll post her new pics here later...) or if he'll attend other pre-Oscar parties or after parties and bump into them this Oscar weekend. It would be an awesome mini P&P c…

Happy Birthday Brenda Blethyn!

Image
Today, February 20th, is the 69th birthday of two-time Academy Award Award NomineeBrenda Blethyn, best known to us P&P fans as Mrs. Bennet, the Bennet girlsmother in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film.

After twenty years of hard work on stage and both television and films, there are not many other actresses who deserved the success, recognition and stardom which Brenda Blethyn has now achieved.

Born in (February 20th) 1946 in Ramsgate in Kent, England, she started her career at British Rail in the 1960s. Saving money during her time there, she took a risk and enrolled herself at the at The Guildford School of Acting in Guildford, Surrey, England and then left her British Rail years behind. Her risk had paid off, by the mid-1970s she was working on stage, eventually joining the National Theatre Company in 1975. (Read more of her Bio on IMDB!)

Rosamund was nominated for Best Actress for her Amy Dunne role in Gone Girl. Unfortunately, she lost...as usual. No surprises for the Best Actress award category as it went to the usual and expected winner Julianne Moore for Still Alice.

Keira was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her Joan Clarke role in . Unsurprisingly, she didn't win (and the TIG film went home empty-handed again)...no love from BAFTA, as usual. She was also nominated for Atonement, but, of course, she didn't win on that one either. Not too mention, the BAFTAs snubbed her for her Elizabeth Bennet role in Pride & Prejudice back in 2006.

Pictures of Rosamund (in her first Oscar Luncheon) and her fellow Oscar nominees (sans Keira Knightley, at least I didn't see any photos of her being there...there goes my hope of seeing her and Ros reuniting in picture together for an early P&P reunion's sake...just not meant to be or rather too early, perhaps? But really, what's going with these two eldest Bennet girls?!?! It's like they were purposely avoiding each other. No single pic of them seen nor any footage of them mingling and catching up at any of these public events or recent awards season. I hope it's not because of Joe Wright and his break-up with RP...but that's in the past! Last time I heard, they were still friends even after RP/JW split...what happened to these two? Only they know, of course. So, it's unlikely, that w…
