A handicapping friendo who didn’t see Substance in Cannes, and therefore was unsure about Demi Moore‘s chances of snagging a Best Actress nom, got in touch yesterday: “Does Demi Moore have a shot at a Best Actress nom?”

HE to friendo: “Moore soldiers through Substance, but it’s a smart body-horror exploitation film with a feminist sheen. Appreciation and respect, but no Oscar action. Okay, she might be nominated because of the metaphor of women suffering on the altar of wanting to looking younger, and because voters might figure Moore deserves an honorary gold watch because she’s a former Brat Packer in her early 60s. And because it’s a weak year.”
