Thursday Movie Picks - Oscar Edition: Best Supporting Actor/Actress
It's time for another Oscar edition over at Wandering Through The Shelves. This week we're focusing on the Supporting categories. Here are three winners that I absolutely love
1) Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight - This is a win that I will love forever. I think The Dark Knight deserved way more Oscars than it actually won, but Heath Ledger's amazing performance being rewarded will always be one of my favorite things. I hate that the Academy tainted this win by also awarding Joaquin Phoenix for a worst performance in the same role.
2) Anna Paquin, The Piano - I feel like no one talks about Paquin being a former Oscar winner any more. I thought she was wonderful in this film and her acceptance speech was so adorable.
3) Mo'Nique, Precious - Mo'Nique being an Oscar winning actress was never something I expected to happen. I knew her as a comedian and here she is giving this crazy dramatic performances. The fact that she got black listed after this makes me want to highlight it. It's not fair.
