A Good Year For Elizabeth Banks

Among all the great entertainment in 2008, a few people clearly stood out, including the beautiful and funny Elizabeth Banks. Why was this year good for Elizabeth Banks? Because she was everywhere.

The woman was in six — count 'em, six! — movies that were released this year. Some were ridiculous and silly (Meet Dave with Eddie Murphy, Meet Bill with Aaron Eckhart, Role Models with Paul Rudd) while one was ridiculous and raunchy (Zack and Miri Make a Porno alongside Seth Rogen). She got to be in the sweet movie Definitely, Maybe with Ryan Reynolds, and she did a serious Laura Bush impersonation, with Josh Brolin as her George, in Oliver Stone's W. And in just a few weeks we'll see her play a freaky stepmother in the scary movie The Uninvited.

She's got range and beauty and crazy comedic skills, and I wish every year could bring us this much Elizabeth Banks.

She's awesome. I really liked her in Zack and Miri Make a Porno. I saw Definitely, Maybe too but I didn't like her character at all in that movie.

I LOVED her in Zach & Miri Make a Porno. Sweet, funny, lovable...she's inching her way up to my top 5, I think.

that's just funny that she was in a movie called 'meet dave' and then another one called 'meet bill'. that's interesting to me. anyway, i didn't know much about her before this year, and i guess i do know a lot more since she was all over the place :)
