Oscar Do-overs: The Results of EW's 'Recall the Gold' Project
If Hollywood revoted on past Academy Award winners, would the winners change? Entertainment Weekly conducted an Oscar recall, mailing ballots to the film industry elite, to find the answer. The results are in. The verdicts are surprising.
Charlize Theron just about disappears into Wuornos, a prostitute who murdered seven men — who she alleged tried to rape her — over 12 months in 1989 and 1990. The actress gained weight and went through extensive makeup for the Oscar-winning role, but Theron's real feat was capturing Wuornos' damaged rootlessness, communicating a lifetime of abuse and rage in a burning blink of her eyes. —Adam B.
