Superhero movies have a certain bias against them when it comes to awards ceremonies, for more often than not, they’re not nominated for any “meaningful” awards. It’s true that Heath Ledger won an award for his role as Joker in The Dark Knight, but many believe that was a sympathy win because of his death that happened before the film released. Suicide Squad won for “best makeup and costumes”, but that’s not exactly a “major” Oscar. However, there was hope with Wonder Woman, maybe not to win Best Picture, but for at least director Patty Jenkins to get a nomination. Sadly, that didn’t happen with the Golden Globes.
I first came to know Kat Kramer when she sent me a friend request after reading my praise of Lily Tomlin’s work in Grandma on Sondra Currie’s Facebook page about two months or so ago. Kat Kramer, also known as Katharine Kramer, is Hollywood royalty. The daughter of the late filmmaker Stanley Kramer and the goddaughter of her namesake Katharine Hepburn, she has kept both their spirits alive as the creator of the Films That Change The World series. She’s also a versatile singer who has recorded an album of covers of Mick Jagger’s solo work, and an accomplished actress, having done many classic stage roles, as well as making appearances in movies by filmmakers like Henry Jaglom and Paul Weitz.
