Playing someone as iconic as Marilyn Monroe was certainly no small challenge for Michelle Williams, and the actress really dove into the part to make it a believable transformation. She underwent physical changes to look like her, nailed her voice and mannerisms, but Williams's best achievement was that she didn't just imitate Monroe. She created a new character for audiences to meet, and brought the '50s legend to life. We're continually impressed by Williams's acting, and My Week With Marilyn is yet another victory for her, which we think will translate to a Golden Globe.
