For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration ★★½ 2006 (PG-13)

Writing team Guest and Levy drop their patented “mockumentary” format, but not their sly satire in this send-up of Hollywood's awards season. Marilyn Hack (O'Hara) is a fading actress stuck in a bad low-budget movie until an Internet rumor deems her performance Oscar-worthy. As the buzz grows, she and her costars (Shearer, Posey) begin campaigning for nominations and the studio head (Gervais) becomes interested. Levy and Guest get the most out of their ensemble cast (including themselves), especially O'Hara. Fred Willard and Jane Lynch are a highlight as clueless entertainment show hosts. 86m/C DVD . US Catherine O'Hara, Harry Shearer, Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins, Christopher Moynihan, Jennifer Coolidge, Fred Willard, Jane Lynch, Ricky Gervais, Bob Balaban, Michael McKean, Ed Begley Jr., Jim Piddock, Rachael Harris, Eugene Levy, Carrie Aizley, Christopher Guest; D: Christopher Guest; W: Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest; C: Roberto Schaefer; M: C.J.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
