Did you miss the Actresses? You don’t have to feel so bereft. They’re right here! But speaking of people who are not directly in front of your face, Lesley Manville was not present at this event.  And in looking her up…did you know that she was once married to Gary Oldman? Who left her (for 20 year-old Uma Thurman, I believe) when their child was three months old? I now desperately long for Leslie to score an upset victory at the Academy Awards, and stroll up there and unload on ol’ Gar. You know she has a tale to tell.
