Is Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Country' comeback Oscar gold?
A lot of awards season seers are whispering 'Oscar nod' for Gwyneth Paltrow's powerful role in "Country Strong," in which she stars, sings and dances. Especially Shana Fiske, who wrote and directed the film.
"I'd love to see Gwyneth get the recognition she deserves," Shana told the Dish Rag at Monday's Elle Women in Hollywood Awards. "This is a complete departure for her. She plays an alcoholic in desperate need of a comeback. She sings, plays guitar and dances... This is a real character role for her and she slips right into it."
Gwyneth, who was one of the actresses honored at the WIH event, sings so well that she's going to perform the title song onstage at the upcoming Country Music Awards on Wednesday (Nov 10).
