Hurray for Philip!

The highlight of last night's Oscars ceremony for me was watching Philip Seymour Hoffman win the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Truman Capote. I have enjoyed his acting ever since I first saw him in Happiness. I have not seen Capote yet, but I look forward to watching to that opportunity. If you haven't seen any of his films, be sure to check them out. Even if the movie itself is terrible (The Talented Mr. Ripley), you will be interested in his character.

Congratulations, Philip!

He's certainly come a long way since "Twister"! Great supporting work in "Boogie Nights" & "Magnolia" amongst others. Then he was the lead in "Owning Mahowny", which was not seen by many (including myself) but it's supposed to be very good.

Just to let y'all know--he's from Rochester! I have only seen him in Along Came Polly--I'm sure it is not one of his better works, but he did teach me what "sharting" is ;-)
