Beyond the ingenues. We are sick of talking about Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman -- all beautiful young actresses whom we consider overrated. We are predicting that 2008 is going to be the year of the older actress. We expect (hope) to talk a lot more about 29-year-old Katherine Heigl (27 Dresses); 33-year-old Amy Adams (Sunshine Cleaning, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day); and, most important, the return of 31-year-old Rachel McAdams (The Lucky Ones, The Time Travelers Wife).
