Best Grownup Love Story: Meryl Streep & Stanley Tucci
Julie & Julia
It may be that Julia and Paul Child—who shared a passion for food—were as exquisitely matched and deliriously in love as their cinematic stand-ins. We can only hope that, similarly, the Childs laughed at each other's jokes, rejoiced in each other's successes, and held each other so tenderly as they passed through middle age and beyond. And we can only wish the same for ourselves.
We also loved:
Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer, The Last Station; Imelda Staunton and Henry Goodman, Taking Woodstock; Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern, Whip It; Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin/Steve Martin, It's Complicated.
