sass appeal

Loved Hailee Steinfeld's performance as Mattie Ross in True Grit.

LaBoeuf: You give out very little sugar with your pronouncements. While I sat there watchin' I gave some thought to stealin' a kiss... though you are very young, and sick... and unattractive to boot. But now I have a mind to give you five or six good licks with my belt.
Mattie Ross: One would be just as unpleasant as the other.

LaBoeuf: I've just come from Yell County.
Mattie Ross: We have no rodeo clowns in Yell County.
LaBoeuf: A saucy line will not get you far with me.

I so so so wanted her to win best supporting actress! And didn't she look lovely?

Well, I guess one way to look at this is that at least Hailee lost the Oscar to another actress (Melissa Leo) with sassitude.

Yes, Ms. Steinfeld looked fabulous.
