Jessica Chastain tied for Best Actress at this festival (with a woman named Flora Ofelia Hofmann Lindahl, for her movie As In Heaven), and frankly, there should be more ties at award shows. We could make them settle it with complex overtime rules that involve on-the-spot acting. Imagine the tour de force if Glenn Close and Olivia Colman had to duel thusly on the Oscar stage, or Joaquin Phoenix and Denzel. Finally, we merge the Oscars and the Thunderdome.
