Take a Look “Behind the Candelabra”

This year, the Emmy Awards are merging their Lead and Supporting Actor categories, so you will have some seriously difficult races among costars. You’ve got contenders Sigourney Weaver v. Ellen Burstyn (Political Animals), Hilary Swank v. Brenda Blethyn (Mary and Martha) and Jessica Lange v. Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story Asylum) along with all of the ladies from the Steel Magnolias remake (Alfre Woodard, Phylicia Rashad, Queen Latifah) competing against each other. Last week added more great performers from the fantastic Phil Spector biopic with Helen Mirren and an astoundingly good Al Pacino…. Now, Pacino is lucky he won’t have to contend with any of those amazing ladies. He will, however, have some seriously big shoes (and capes) to fill if he wants to fend off Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. The latter two Oscar winners will face off in the highly anticipated Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra directed by fellow Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic). Douglas plays the iconic musician while Damon takes on the role of his long time lover Scott Thorson and the film covers their very dramatic relationship. The first trailer just hit the web and it looks fantastic. Check it out below and see which Oscar winner has the better shot at an Emmy when the film premieres on HBO in May.. And head to film’s website for more on Candelabra which also stars Rob Lowe, Debbie Reynolds, Dan Aykroyd and Cheyenne Jackson.
