Hello! Just as I did last year, I am making sprite patterns for every acting nominee at this year's Academy Awards! I've gotten an earlier start on the project this year, since the nominations just came out yesterday, so this time, I'm hoping to actually finish stitching all of them either before or during the actual airing of the Academy Awards, instead of a couple of days afterwards. Even if I don't finish on time, though, this was a fun project last year, so it should be cool again.
For today's post, I have the five nominees for Best Supporting Actress. I had a few of these done ahead of time, since I was using an Entertainment Weekly article about award season predictions to try and get ahead with this project, and luckily, all of the actresses that I made patterns for actually got nominations! None of these patterns should be too hard to stitch or perler bead, though, as the case will be again when I post the Best Actress patterns, Jennifer Lawrence's complicated American Hustle hairstyle makes her a bit taller than the rest of the patterns. Also, as is again the case with Jennifer Lawrence, if an actor or actress was also nominated last year, which is true of three of this year's nominees, I kept the same skin and eye floss colors for their patterns. I'm not sure that this is important to anyone other than myself, but I wanted to make sure that was the case.
Anyway, in alphabetical order, today's patterns of the nominees for Best Supporting Actress feature Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle), Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), and June Squibb (Nebraska). All of the patterns were made of the roles for which the actresses were nominated, so it was not some sort of weird oversight that the pattern of June Squibb ended up being in black and white. I do like making black and white sprite patterns, though, so that wouldn't be so bad.
