I’m presuming that these GQ photos of Blue Is The Warmest Color‘s Adele Exarchpoulos vaguely allude to Tom O’Neil‘s longstanding suspicion that aging male horndog Academy members occasionally like to nominate at least one or two alluring breeding-age (i.e., under 40) females for Best Actress. That’s the legend, at least. A tedious and sexist theory, of course, but with everyone dismissing the 19 year-old Exarchopoulos as an unlikely nominee due to her being relatively unknown (and because IFC Films won’t spend diddly-squat on her campaign), I’ll take any advantage I can grab. Why am I so interested? Because Hollywood Elsewhere has been Ground Zero for the pro-Exarchopoulos forces since Cannes, and I’m in this for the long haul.
