Aterthoughts on last post

In my opinion, Basinger is one of the worst winners ever in this category. I mean, L.A Confidential is a great movie but this performance left a bad taste in my mouth. She never delves deep enough into her character, nor does she make it special enough to warrant that "true supporting performance title". I don't understand why she even got a nomination. Even Driver (whose work was occasionally inspired but annoying and two-dimensioal) was better then her. My Ranking (I have not seen Moore's performance yet): 1. Joan Cusack 2. Gloria Stuart 3. Minnie Driver 4. Kim Basinger

I forget the name at the moment, but the supporting actress in The Wings of the Dove was phenomenal, then add in Moore and Stuart and that's my top 3. I don't have any opinion on Bassinger or her win. It's just blah for me. I don't hate it like that Connelly woman though...so...oh well.

I think her name was Alison Elliot. What do you think of Cusack's performance?

I agree with you. Basinger is one of the worst winners.

What's your ranking?

In and Out is a mixed bad for me...it's somewhere between B and B-. It could have been so much better...but it's not bad. Cusack would round out my top 5 with I don't know maybe Fisher from Titanic. The thing about Cusack is that she is a phenomenal character actress but some of her good work are in films that are horrid. Take Friend With Money for example. Horrible film, but Cusack is great in it. Even in teenage fare like Ice Princess...she really needs a good role in a prestige flick. Maybe Woody Allen should write something for her.

I liked In & Out. I thought it was hysterically funny. I totally agree that Woody Allen should write something for Cusack. What a great team!
