As Julianne Moore wins an Oscar at 54 she shows that women over 50 are VERY visible!


Article by Ceri Wheeldon

Julianne Moore

As Julianne Moore takes the top accolade in Hollywood as she accepted her Oscar – she showed that being a woman and actress over 50 is no barrier to success – or visibility.

Julianne Moore had been nominated for an Oscar on four previous occasions – but s was her role  in Still Alice where she portrays  an Alzheimer’s patient that won her the coveted award.

It was a role that ONLY a mature actress could portray. A role which also increases awareness of the impact Alzheimer’s has on lives in our ageing society.

It is refreshing to see an actress who embraces her age win an Oscar for a role which highlights an issue facing many in our age group. Apparently there are 42,000 people in the UK living with early onset dementia.

In an industry that appears to applaud youth, it is worth noting that both Helen Mirren and Judi Dench were both also over 50 when they won their first Oscars.

Congratulations to Julianne Moore for demonstrating so well that being a women over 50 is no barrier to being visible or successful. In some cases it can even be an advanrage!
