Emily Watson


  1. Cate Blanchett Elizabeth I, 1998    .Second choice after Catherine McCormack, until the Bandit Queen’s Shakhar Kapur saw a play in Sydney... and exploded Cate’s career.
  2. Audrey Tatou, Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain, France, 2001.    Paris realisateur Jean-Pierre Jeunet wrote Amélie - an Amélie having grown up in England - when thinking of the “naivete and positivity” of Emily’s character in Breaking The Waves, 1996. However, she was pregnant. She left her mark on the movie: Amélie was named after her.
  3. Renée Zellweger, Bridget Jones’ Diary, 2001.       Emily was (rightly) among the Brits (rightly) seen for Bridget:  Rachel Weisz, Kate Winslet.  No hard feelings. Emily and Renée later made Miss Potter, 2006.
  4. Julianne Moore, The Hours, 2002.   Watson and Gwyneth Paltrow were seen for Laura Brown, planning to kill herself with pills. She was not alone. Two other women were determined on suicide in differing time zones and locales. Including Nicole Kidman with a famous fake nose as writer Virginia Wolf.   Before handing her the Best Actress Oscar on March 23, 2003, Denzel Washington said she’d won by a nose.  
  5. Harriet Walter, Atonement, 2007.     Both Emily and Kristin Scott Thomas were invited to play the mother of sisters Keira Knightley and Saoirse Ronan..
  6. Florence Pugh, Black Widow, 2019.  Scarlett Johansson was the titular Natsha Romanoff, of course. But there was a battle for Yelena Belova between the favourites, Saoirse Ronan, and Emma Watson. Plus newer-comers Australian Alice Englert (from Jane Campionl’s Top of the Lake serries) and the Israeli actress and model Dar Zuzovsky. The win for Oxford’s Pugh came at the end of a magical two years in films and TV: Lady Macbeth, King Lear, The Little Drummer Girl, Midsommer and Amy in Little Women.
