Review | Elizabeth Mitchell’s Phenomenal Performance

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardQuestion: The April 11 episode of Lost was so good it actually made me upset because Elizabeth Mitchell’s phenomenal performance Mitchell’s role in Lost would almost certainly be deemed “supporting,”might just take the Emmy away from Connie Britton of Friday Night Lights. Connie would be lead actress, of course, so wouldn’t it be perfect if Mitchell were nominated for supporting actress so both these outstanding ladies could get the awards they deserve? Who actually makes the decision about which category an actor is eligible in? Is it the producers of the show, the networks, the agents? And do you think they take into consideration the possible competition when they make that decision?— Sarah E.

Matt Roush: My understanding is that it’s the actor’s call to submit their own name, in consultation with the studio, the network and no doubt their management. It’s not uncommon for strategy to play a part: How else to explain how Jon Cryer finds himself nominated in a supporting category for Two and a Half Men when Charlie Sheen, the other “man” in the title, is nominated for lead actor? You’re right that Mitchell’s role in Lost would almost certainly be deemed “supporting,” unlike Britton as Friday Night Lights’ co-adult lead. As much as I admire what Mitchell is doing on Lost, I still think it’s going to be a long shot for that show to get its due this season, given the perception (much of it shortsighted) of its fall from grace.

Scoop, Secrets and What It’s Really Like on Lost Island

Part of “Old Info And News”

3x15  Left Behind  set Elizabeth Mitchell.jpgWhen you walk into the main camp, you honestly feel as though you have crawled inside your TV set and arrived on Lost island. In fact, I actually thought I’d walked into a shot and ruined some kind of panoramic scene, because everywhere I looked, the Losties were just hanging out together and being Losties…Jorge Garcia (Hurley) and Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) were deep into a game of Scrabble. Evangeline Lilly (Kate) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet) were giggling and girl-talking in the corner. And Josh was flipping his signature Sawyer hair while ponying up to the fruit juice bar next to Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) and Daniel Dae Kim (Jin). Just a regular day on set, waiting for the cameras to roll. They all bust ass, learn their lines, shoot their scenes, and when they stop, the cast will either hang out together and eat a meal, take a nap in one of the tents or hit the beach to go surfing.

The only downside of a Lost set visit? You do not want to leave!

Starbulletin Small Interview

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot blue tshirt elizabeth mitchell (4).jpg“Lost” star Elizabeth Mitchell had a “fantastic time” with Evangeline Lilly while they filmed last week’s wet and muddy-while-handcuffed-together episode. “We were freezing!” she said. That’s why she and Lilly huddled in a tent between takes, drank hot tea covered in towels, and giggled. “Well, she was chuckling,” said Mitchell. “I was giggling, because I’m more girly. But we were definitely having a wonderful time.”

Lost Redux: Juliet, Forever Alone in a Crowd

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgAmazing, right? Elizabeth Mitchell knocks another one out of the park! What did we ever do without our beautiful Juliet? Now, let’s dissect this episode…

WHAT WE LEARNED

Poor Juliet:  Juliet is playing our Losties, but she’s a mama bear torn away from her family, and she will do anything to get back to them—you can’t blame her for that; it’s human nature. And she’s all alone in this, trapped between psychotic mad scientists in one corner and very pissed-off castaways in the other (not to mention the fact that Ana-Lucia killed her lovah, Goodwin!). Even though I love our Losties first, I can’t help but feel for Juliet.

Fan Plea of the Week:  Craig in Alberta, Canada, writes: “Please tell me that Kate and Juliet will eventually get along. I think they are both great; plus, if Kate likes her, then Sun, Sawyer and Claire will, then Jin and Charlie, then Hurley, so it will all be good and everyone will stand around holding hands!” Awww…

By the way, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out my exclusive one-on-one with the truly lovely Elizabeth Mitchell for tons more on what she thinks about the character of Juliet and her relationship with Jack, Ben and all the rest of the folks on that uncharted desert isle…

Review | Emmy Ballot – Juliet: Lost’s First Lady of Mystery

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardJuliet: Lost’s First Lady of Mystery

But, soft! What light on yonder island breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun.

Apologies to Shakespeare. OK, apologies to everyone. But how can anyone who’s watching Lost these days not have fallen under the spell of Juliet Burke? So alluring, so enigmatic, strangely both warm and chilly beneath that elusive Mona Lisa smile, forever challenging our assumptions about her ultimate motives. Is she good? Is she bad? Probably both, right? Is she, as Jack declares (and which provided the title of Wednesday’s excellent, twisty episode), “one of us”? Oh, Jack, you deluded, trusting, overprotective fool.

Whatever she is, Juliet’s one for the ages. Even in last fall’s much-derided “pod” of episodes that introduced us to her and the Village of the Others, Juliet stood out, an object of fascination as she asserted control over her captives, while betraying an underlying sense of desperation. Elizabeth Mitchell nailed it from the start, but she really came into her own as a full-fledged Lost-ie this week. I agree with Michael Ausiello. She deserves serious Emmy attention.

Juliet is both manipulator and one of the manipulated, and even when she’s calculating you can see in her eyes that she’s trapped. That’s some powerful acting. The one thing Jack said that is ultimately correct about her: “You want to get off this island more than anything else in the world.” She is one of them, except when she isn’t. (The fact that her infiltration was planned, and the Claire health crisis was rigged, propels the show into loony sci-fi land again, but still, an effective emotional reversal.)

The episode also delivered plenty of answers, or at least provocative new theories, about what’s happening on Mystery Island and certainly about what brought Juliet there: to research and hopefully fix whatever it is that’s killing all the pregnant women. (What an arbitrary island: It cures cancer, heals the lame, but somehow disallows new life, until Claire arrived, to emerge?) What does this mean for Sun? Now there’s a great story to take to the end of the season.

I also loved the flashbacks more than usual, especially as they pertained to life on the island that was happening while we were looking elsewhere. Once again, as in the season opener, I was floored by the sequence in which the Village of the Others watched in amazement as Oceanic Flight 815 broke apart in the sky above. How unnerving to see Ben jump immediately into action, ordering immediate infiltration into the camp of the survivors and for lists to be made, then zipping over to Mikhail’s amazing comm center to start compiling info on the passenger manifest. That led to the wrenching moment in which Juliet was shown via satellite remote that her sister Rachel and nephew Julian were still alive (as of September 22, 2004, the historic day of Lost‘s premiere). In Juliet’s hysteria, Elizabeth Mitchell didn’t just rise to the occasion. She was an occasion.

We all know what happens when Lost introduces new characters that feel out of place or distracting from our primary focus and enjoyment. (R.I.P., Nikki and Paulo.) Juliet Burke is not one of those characters. She really is “one of them,” or better yet, “one of those.” In other words, a keeper. Whatever Ben has in store for our beloved beachcombers in the “week” to come, Juliet’s actions and reactions will be something to watch, to ponder, to enjoy. To me, she’s no longer just an Other. She’s other-worldly.
