Paltrow Joins Kidman in Tranny Drama for Oscar Glory

It was reported yesterday that Academy Award-Winner Nicole Kidman will be joined by Academy Award-Stealer-From-Cate-Blanchett Gwyneth Paltrow in The Danish Girl,  a new movie about the first post-operative transsexual, Einar Wegener, directed by the man who brought us our favorite kiddie-vampire movie not starring Robert Pattinson, Let The Right One In.

Kidman, who won a Best Actress Oscar for her willingness to don a prosthetic nose in The Hours will be playing Wegener. Paltrow will be portraying Greta, the wife who stood by her partner through his transition. While the thought of these two very stone-faced women being affectionate to one another is in and of itself creepy, we’re more taken aback by what is clearly just another one of their schemes to get another crack at Oscar gold.

Sure, playing a suicidal poet didn’t work. Neither did playing a photographer who falls in love with a guy with Werewolf Syndrome. But, ladies, did it really have to come to this? Has playing transgendered replaced playing mentally-handicapped as the new sure-fire way to a Best Actor/Actress nomination? We hope not. Otherwise we’re gonna have to give Hilary Swank and Felicity Huffman a piece of our minds.
