J. Edgar and Leo’s Oscar

When Leo looks in the mirror in the morning, he doesn’t see a man; nay, he sees the 2009 Kid’s Choice Award Big Green Help Award winner. Indeed, Leo has been nominated three times for an Oscar and come away with his pockets out turned, Hooverville style, each time. Indeed, Leo thinks Leo is due. 

HISTORY! AGE MAKEUP! JUDI DENCH! J. Edgar is Leo’s most naked stab at Oscar glory to date, where he’ll play the, ahem, eccentric FBI chief who ruthlessly suppressed civil rights and may or may not have enjoyed mincing about in ladies clothing. (The buzz around the movie has been coy about whether Mr. Hoover’s alleged sexual predilections will factor into the film, though the presence of Dame Judi Dench as a severely overbearing mother promises sexual psychodrama galore.)

The movie will follow Hoover from his young, communist-skull-busting days through his Kennedy brother-blackmailing glory all the way to his inevitable downfall. (Spoiler: he reaches too far for power and it costs him. KIND OF LIKE AMERICA. GET IT?) It also features the use of disturbing age makeup that makes Leo look not unlike the Jackass guys when they got done up like old dudes and the creepy dancing guy from the Six Flags commercials. Indeed, on the Oscar-Grab-O-Meter, age makeup is one step shy from going “full retard.”
