Few deals, some Oscar bets at Toronto film festival
Corrections are required. This is not the first time that you, Reuters, have misinformed other media especially those at the Toronto Film Festival that this film stars Annette Bening, Naomi Watts…..etc. and they’re all quoting you.
As per the official cast listing that has been publicly announced, this film stars Naomi Watts, Annette Bening…. You people have once again slighted Ms. Watts and deprived her of what she deserves just because you think Ms. Bening is a bigger name.
I don’t agree with your assessment that deviating from the order in some official cast listing means our story “misinformed” anybody, much less that it needs correcting. Both actresses are in the movie, right?
This story was from the Toronto International Film Festival, whose synopsis listed Bening first.
But look, just for you, here’s a picture of Watts and not one of Bening
