1. - Minnie Driver, Good Will Hunting, 1997. Julia was among five British nearly-Skylars: Gabrielle Anwar, Helena Bonham Carter, Rachel Weisz. When the writer-stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, Oscars in hand, thanked Minnie Driver, the simultaneous translation on French TV said they thanked... beaucoup de chauffeurs!
2. - Renée Zellweger, Bridget Jones's Diary, 2000. At least she was British (but not lumpy/dumpy) unlike such diarists as the Arquette sisters, Julie Benz, Selma Blair, Nicollette Sheridan, etc.
