Adored it the 2nd time around (today).

Zellweger was robbed.

I think Zellweger not singing at the Oscars confirmed that she had a lot of help in the studio.
If anyone got robbed, it was Julianne Moore. And Gere for not getting nominated.

I loved Julianne Moore, especially in "Far From Heaven", but she and Nicole Kidman (whom I think is one of the great beauties of the screen and one of the best behaved actresses in public) had costumes to work with. Meryl was the real, naked actress in "The Hours".

I agree with you wholeheartedly, glebb, and refer you to our Oscars thread, but again I must remind everyone to Stay on Topic Course. Thanks to all!

I don't think it's been mentionned before, but one of the girls was at the Paris Opera Ballet School a few years ago (she ended the course in 1996). It's the one who does an arabesque at the beginning (well, when she arrives in jail and six of them sing and dance one by one to present themselves, I can't remember the name of the song). It's not really surprising, but it's still funny, if you see what I mean. I wonder why she stopped ballet. Or maybe she didn't. Does any one know if she dances in the US? Her name is Nathalie Chtcherbakova.

Wow, that's the third variation I've seen of her name. The song is the "Cell Block Tango," and she plays the Hunyak. Sorry, I don't know anything about her.

I suppose it's like Nureyev, it depends on which language you speak (in french it's Noureev, for example, and I've also seen it with an "i" instead of the "y", and many other ways too). The spelling I used was the one in the Paris Opera program for the Ballet School performance in 1996, and I'm pretty sure that was also the one I saw in the credits (I saw the movie in english, but since the credits were in french too...).

She's spelled her name both
Ekaterina Chtchelkanova and Ekaterina Schelkanova. Born in Russia. (she took some slack for the Hungarian as, apparently, a few words were mispronounced-who notices these things?)

She was in Center Stage (as one of the Swan Lake soloists) and on Broadway, briefly in "Movin Out"

She was with the Kirov from 88-92 an from 93-95 she was at ABT

hopefully that helps clarify who she is.

Shelkanova was with ABT as recently as 1999 or 2000. She was quite memorable in the lead of Lilac Garden, I thought. I miss her, but it seems McKenzie is more interested in whiz-bang bottle-rockets these days.

Thank you very much Calliope, but are you really sure it's the same, because there is quite a difference between "Nathalie Chtcherbakova " and "Ekaterina Chtchelkanova" (more than between "Nureyev" and "Noureev"). It's not even the same first name! Unless I got it wrong the first time (in the movie, because I'm sure about what's in the program), which is very possible! That must be it, I must have forgotten her first name, and thought I recognised her surname (I got all the vowels OK, and confused a few consonnants!;) ). Sorry about that, I was wrong since the beginning.

In the movie soundtrack it lists her as Ekaterina Chtchelkanova.

yes, you can look her up on www.imdb.com for her film listings.
I don't know where Nathalie has come from?

Yes, after this, I thought I had got it wrong. Nathalie just comes here out of a mistake I made! I confused the two, sorry! Nathalie was at the Paris Opera Ballet school, but I don't know what she does now.

I don't know who was in Chicago (which I haven't seen) but Shelkanova was one of the soloists I most looked forward to seeing at ABT. I was quite sorry when she left the company...
