Telluride: Hilary Swank Angles For Another Shot At Oscar With 'The Homesman'

by Wochit 1:07 mins

Hilary Swank already has two best actress Oscars on her shelf, for Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby, which is something that only 12 other women have ever been able to claim. But, having only just turned 40, she is not resting on her laurels. Since her second win, in 2005, she has pursued a number of projects that were clearly intended to be awards bait, but that failed to resonate with voters. Now, however, she is starring in a film that in no way adheres to the traditional Oscar-baiting formula, Tommy Lee Jones' western Homesman — and she may have her best shot yet at landing her third nomination. The Homesman premiered at Cannes in May, but had its North American premiere, and additional screenings, this weekend at Telluride, which also honored Swank with a "career tribute" (one of several that she is being lined up to receive this award season).
