Will Marilyn Monroe Bring Michelle Williams Oscar Glory?

The New York Film Festival announced that the new Marilyn Monroe biopic “My Week With Marilyn,” which follows a production assistant’s week on set with the icon right after tying the knot with Arthur Miller, will get top billing at the festival this year. The festival’s head of programming changed the schedule, moving the film to the opening slot after seeing Michelle Williams‘ performance. “After seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams,” he said. The coveted centerpiece slot is often a predictor of a future Oscar nomination. I wouldn’t be surprised if the lovely and talented Michelle were headed that way. She looks completely transformed in these first look photos. I can’t wait to see her take on the icon. Even though we’ve seen so many do it before her. [ONTD]
