Judi Dench hasn’t scored an Oscar nom since 2006’s Notes on a Scandal, but her fortunes could change with Philomena, a drama that sparked a bidding war at Cannes this year. Dench stars as a real-life Irishwoman who ventures to America with a journalist (Steve Coogan) to find the son she was coerced into giving up for adoption decades earlier. While shooting last winter in Northern Ireland, London, and Washington, D.C., Coogan helped the 78-year-old actress keep her mind off the cold. ”He’s the most brilliant mimic — you shut your eyes and you can be in the car with Sean Connery,” she recalls. ”Steve made me almost cry with laughter every day.”
