No way Walk the Line deserved to be in the best picture category. Everything about it was stale and paint-by-numbers except for Reese Witherspoon, who completely acted Phoenix off the screen. She should easily win best actress.
My best actor would be Ledger, but I still need to see Capote, I hear it's incredible. Ang Lee for best director.
I was also struck by how much Slade looked like John McCain. I wonder if that was deliberate. This has been a fun season so far with all the guest stars and I hope they've got it ramping up to a great finish in the spring.
