Hilary Duff Will Someday Win an Oscar
Mark my words, someday it will happen. Now, I don't think that Hilary Duff is a particularly good actress (has anybody else suffered through Raise Your Voice?) but, for God knows what reason, she just seems to be the type of pretty young thing that with the right role could win a Supporting Actress Oscar. Just picture it: Duff playing a recovering meth addict who, while selling her body to support her habit, got pregnant and had to give up her child so he/she could have a better life. With some type of baity role like that, which combines two of Oscar's favorite "types" (drug addict and whore with a heart of gold), and the fact that she would gain extra press with the "Who knew?" aspect, she could be accepting a little gold man of her own one day in the future. None of her upcoming project really scream "Oscar" at me but I have faith that one day I will be proven right. Come on, Hilary! Take that biopic role that fulfills every cliche of the genre; people will forget it in 10 years, but you'll have an Oscar!
