If Leonardo DiCaprio Does not walk away from the Kodak theater with an Oscar tonight, I would be VERY disappointed in the Oscar folks. One movie after another the kid proves that he is one hell of an actor . I used to think he’s just another good looking kid who thinks he can act, which turned out not to be the case. This is his third Oscar nomination. He was also nominated for 2 Golden Globe Awards this year for both of his roles as leading actor in Blood Diamond and The Departed.
UPDATE: HE DID NOT WIN. However “the Departed” won four Oscars for: Film Editing, Adapted Screen Play, Director, and Best Motion Picture of the year!
By the way Forest Whitaker won the best Actor this year for his role in “The Last King of Scotland“, which he also won the Golden Globe Award for. He plays the role of عيدي أمين the Ugandan dictator. I did not see this movie yet but there has been alot of buzz about Forest….they say it’s a one of a kind performance…:
“Forest Whitaker gives one of the great performances, and not just of last year—his portrayal of Idi Amin is the stuff of legend. What makes it special is how Whitaker humanizes and fully realizes the dictator. After spending time in Uganda, with Ugandans who were deeply affected by Amin, Forest truly became the character. No disrespect to the other nominees, but there’s no way anybody else even has a shot at this”
