saw her in "vanity fair" yesterday.. brilliant. btw, what a nice movie. even if they cut the story badly to fit the 120 min standard, it is still faithfull to the spirit of the book. ironic dialogues, sharp criticism of society.. the actors are all brilliant and the scenes are a delight to watch.

And she seems like the real deal, which is refreshing. Hope she can stay that way in Hollywood. I enjoyed her Oscar acceptance speech too, though she probably should have cut about the last 30 seconds. She was risking getting into Sally Fields "you really really like me" gushing land. But it was still sweet.

What I can't figure is that she manages to speak in very nice voice for her movie roles---everything from Walk the Line to Vanity Fair, so why, when she's out of role, does she use that ghastly chirp, which makes my skin crawl?

I'm glad Reese Witherspoon won last night. I think Walk the Line should have gotten a couple more nominations and another win or two.

I was sure Best Actress was gonna go to Felicity Huffman whom I thought did a great job. Guess the transgender character was a little too gross for the Academy.

Well I haven't seen Walk the Line yet nor most of the movies that won. I usually wait for the dVD version. I just think that any actress with a "dame" designation usually has a head start. ;)

did you see vanity fair? the book is satyrical and the movie does quite well w/ that spirit. the actors are superb. bob hoskins , wow.. and the scenes: the ruined aristocrats receive the rich aunt for dinner.. and she knows they want her money. delicious.
it's direcetd by indian director mira nair.

Never saw Vanity Fair. I've heard Mira Nair is a very nice lady.

I liked Reese Witherspoon in Election as well as in Legally Blonde. She's done good work.
