SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

British actress Lesley Manville is a veteran of such Mike Leigh films as “Vera Drake” and “All or Nothing,” but she is little known in Hollywood.

That’s changing with Leigh’s “Another Year,” in which Manville is the mirror reverse of Sally Hawkins’ eternal optimist in the director’s 2008 film “Happy-Go-Lucky.” Manville is heartbreaking as a lovelorn woman who sees everyone around her getting at least some of what they want, while she perpetually holds an empty glass.
While reviews are mixed at best for Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls,” the ensemble drama does offer some excellent performances, with Loretta Devine and Kimberly Elise among the standouts.

Other possibilities: Helena Bonham Carter, “The King’s Speech”; Marion Cotillard, “Inception”; Minnie Driver, “Conviction”; Cecile de France, “Hereafter”; Greta Gerwig, “Greenberg”; Gemma Jones, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”; Keira Knightley, “Never Let Me Go”; Mila Kunis, “Black Swan”; Ellen Page, “Inception”; Rosamund Pike, “Barney’s Version”; Sissy Spacek, “Get Low”; Olivia Williams, “The Ghost Writer.”

New Films International says it has acquired the worldwide rights to Christopher B. Landon’s “Burning Palms,” an edgy comedy set in Los Angeles.

Starring Zoe Saldana, Dylan McDermott, Paz Vega and Rosamund Pike, the film interlaces five stories set in different Los Angeles neighborhoods where no taboo is left unexplored as each character careens toward a dark and often comic fate, the producers said in a synopsis released Wednesday.

“We are excited to be distributing ‘Burning Palms’ worldwide and we are planning the U.S. theatrical release for early 2011,” Nesim Hason, president of New Films International and New Films Cinema, said in a statement.

“‘Burning Palms’ is a smart, independent, cast-driven film that we expect will be a breakout film in the United States theatrically and deliver in the international marketplace,” added Ron Gell, New Films chief content officer.

Are two wonderful performances enough to help Rosamund Pike enter the awards race?

On Thursday, I linked to Jeff Wells’ declaration that British actress Rosamund Pike (left) deserved to be in the Best Supporting Actress conversation because she was the best thing in both “Barney’s Version” and “Made in Dagenham.” At the time, I had seen the former film (in which she is indeed terrific) but not the latter. But now I’ve seen “Dagenham” too, and I can’t resist reprising the link and saying that while I love Sally Hawkins in the film, and I know that Miranda Richardson is no doubt the smarter Supporting Actress call, Wells is right: Pike has the best scene in the movie, she’s tremendously moving in it, and she fully deserves to be in the mix.

Lone Scherfig‘s An Education is recognized by most as being the career-making vehicle for Carey Mulligan, but it also featured a promising supporting turn by the 31-year-old English actress Rosamund Pike. Since last year, Pike has been slowly but surely building an impressive resume, which will include two possible 2010 Oscar contenders: Barney’s Version and Made in Dagenham.

As expected, Pike‘s strong work has been earning her more job offers across the board, and The Playlist is reporting what might be the most interesting of all. Nick Hornby, the Oscar-nominated scribe of An Education who also wrote Fever Pitch and About a Boy, is planning to write an original comedy script with the hopes of having Pike play one of the main characters.

This is hardly urgent news, but over the years, Hornby has gained a steady following of fans of both his novels and his screenplays, and anything he is working on is likely to stir up interest. Similarly, Pike‘s recent evolvement, which will probably hit a peak once her two aforementioned contenders are released in the U.S., will surely provoke some intrigue of its own. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more of this project.
