How accurate was Julianne Moore's Sarah Palin? Judge for yourself!

YouTube user flammable2002 put together this compilation of clips comparing Julianne Moore's performance as Sarah Palin in Game Change to the real thing, and it's pretty damn impressive. (video via Slate.)

Were it not for the fact that Moore is clearly a good bit shorter than Palin, it would be difficult to tell which one is which, although I'm happy to say that the inclusion of the Katie Couric footage has vindicated my criticism the terrible back double who stands in for Couric for part of the interview (you can see my real-time unhappiness in the live blog I did of the film). I suggest that Julianne Moore submit this video as her Emmy reel, because it showcases just how phenomenal her performance is.

  1. Everything about this woman is already fictitiously scripted. Every word that comes from her mouth is bought and paid for. I don’t know if HBO can Sell Sarah better than she sells herself. She’s cut-throat when it comes to her money and you can see just how scandalous she’ll get for the cash with The Ecstasy of Sarah Palin at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html Watch the cash rain down as she teases the public and bats her eyelashes for the green.
