Gwyneth Paltrow is a wan waste of celluloid. She won because she cried
at the Golden Globes. She used her father's illness as well as her
grandfather's illness to win her the Oscar. The Golden Globe speeches
are calculated attempts at votes. Before the Golden Globes, Blanchett
was the front runner. After the waterworks, Paltrow had it locked.
Perhaps, Susan Lucci should do that sometime.
