      Hope I did not misunderstand the survey question.

    CR,

    I’m sure you didn’t. In going back to your recent article and Leo in WEGG, I took a look at the actors he was nominated with for the BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

    Ralph Fiennes for “Shindler’s List”
    Tommy Lee Jones for “The Fugitive” (won)
    John Malcovich for” In The Line of Fire”
    Pete Postlethwaite for “In the Name of the Father”

    Ok, I haven’t seen the last film, so that’s not helpful. Nor did I see ITLF. So taking those two actors out, let me give you my assessment of the remaining three. SL was an incredible movie and Ralph Fiennes did an incredible job. The Fugitive was a good movie. Enertaining and I like Tommy Lee. However, if the academy had asked me for MY vote, I would have voted for Leo based on his performance of a very challenging role. I’m sorry, but what did Tommy do in TF that was so brilliant? Tommy was…Tommy. That’s why I think there is a LOOOOOOT of politics that go into the awards. If we really awarded people on their talent, types of roles, and dedication to go above and beyond, then I would feel there was more of a competition.

    I don’t know if Leo will ever win an Oscar, but I do hope he wins a Lifetime Achievement or Kennedy Award. Those are more important in my eyes as a consumer.

      LB,

      Ignore me, I need to have my (what I think is periodic) dyslexia confirmed and just get it over with! I hope my reason gap did not impact the survey.

        By the way I think politics is foundation of most of the awards shows and I like Leo’s work too.
