Rooting for Hailee Steinfeld…

I’m rooting for Hailee Steinfeld for several reasons. 1. She is the daughter of one of my best friends from my years as a Flight Attendant. 2. She is absolutely outstanding in her portrayal of Mattie Ross — just try saying the lines she was given as confidently and as naturally as she does. AND 3. While each and every actor/actress nominated is worthy of the honor, I’m flat out tired of Oscars given toward roles that portray women as dysfunctional or victims. Blaaach.

The character of Mattie Ross is like many women I know – courageous, intelligent, independent, strong and full of grit.
