When Oscar Got It Right


I’m always bitching out all those Academy Awards given to undeserving actors simply because they didn’t get it the year before or because they just had a tracheotomy.

But occasionally, Oscar gets it right, actually conferring gold on the person who gave the best performance of the year in that category. No, really, it happens!

Just to name a few examples, this crazy but inspiring phenomenon includes:

Halle Berry in Monster’s Ball

Chris Cooper in Adaptation

Emma Thompson in Howard’s End

Denzel Washington in Training Day

Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton

And maybe one or two more.

Your choices for who got it and deserved it? (The Oscar, that is.)
