At the 2001 Academy Awards, 4 out of the 5 actresses nominated for best actress played the role of a single mother - Juliette Binoche for "Chocolat," Julia Roberts for "Erin Brockovich," Laura Linney for "You Can Count on Me" and Ellen Burstyn for "Requiem for A Dream." And in 2010, 3 films featuring fatherless families, "The Switch," "The Back Up Plan" and "The Kids Are Alright" were released consecutively - prompting declarations that it was the year of the single mother. How did the single mother figure become discursively symbolic of a policy of inclusivity and diversity of behalf of mainstream popular cinema? Are these recent configurations of motherhood reflecting a more inclusive attitude towards lone motherhood in general or do these new representational strategies veil more familiar conservative accounts?
