Give Us Moore

Special to MSN Movies

How is it possible that Julianne Moore has never won an Academy Award? Of course, the Oscars are the Oscars — they have a proven track record of not honoring those who have routinely deserved golden boys (Alfred Hitchcock, Cary Grant, Stanley Kubrick are just three who come to mind). But with movies like "Short Cuts," "Magnolia" and "The Hours," for heaven's sake — a movie that practically has "Oscar Winner" embossed on its screening passes — you'd think Moore would have nabbed that coveted statue at this point. But no matter. She's still one of the most important and in-demand actresses working, a woman with not just an outstanding, singular talent, beauty that's much like her work — both powerful and delicate all at once. With her newest movie seeing release, the romantic comedy/drama "Crazy, Stupid, Love." (co-starring Steve Carell) we're taking a look at 10 of Moore's greatest roles. This wasn't an easy task, because there are so many terrific performances on this woman's resume (check the stretch from "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" to "Children of Men"), so don't get angry, just look further. There's much more of Moore to love.
