Does anyone else think it's strange that Gwyneth Paltrow won the Best
Actress Oscar over Cate Blanchett? I know Gwyneth is a popular choice but I
don't think she's a very versatile or convincing actor, she was adequate
for the part in SIL but it didn't seem to be a difficult or deep role.
Cate's performance in Elizabeth was very convincing and I lost all
awareness that it was a part she was playing. It makes me question the
purpose of the award, I know it is driven by studio PR but I thought there
was some pretence at giving it for the best performance in the films
