What movie do you think deserves an Oscar?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on March 5, 2006
“I just saw ‘Capote’ at Liberty Hall, and I loved it. It should win best actor. Philip Seymour Hoffman is so good.”
“I think Joaquin Phoenix should get best actor and Reese Witherspoon should win best actress for ‘Walk the Line.’ Having met Johnny Cash in person, I think he did a really good job.”
“‘Capote.’ Philip Seymour Hoffman is the finest actor of our time. Not to mention that Truman Capote was one of the finest writers of his time. Everyone should read ‘In Cold Blood’ before they see the movie, though.”
“I’m going to have to say ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ but I didn’t like the fact that Hollywood made gay people the victim again. I actually thought Jake (Gyllenhaal) had a stronger character role. I’m happy that he’s getting some acknowledgment.”
