One of the more surprising facets of the awards season right now must be to the amount of critics prizes Michelle Williams keeps earning for My Week With Marilyn.  Not that she's not wonderful in the part, but it's the volume of prizes she has amassed that's most surprising, making me question not only her status as an actual contender, but perhaps as a dark horse winner...I really can't expect anyone else netting the Golden Globe for Musical\Comedy at this point, even if it's complete category fraud-- the film is light and fizzy, but here presence is the epitome of drama!
