My Bologna Has A First Name

Reese Witherspoon, in vintage Christian Dior, won the Best Actress Oscar last night for her work in 'Walk The Line' while Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Best Actor award for 'Capote.' Reese was in a movie in the mid-90's called 'Freeway' with Kiefer Sutherland in which she was brilliant as a troubled teen while Hoffman made us sit up and notice in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' and 'Magnolia.' Other winners were: Gorgeous George/Best Supporting Actor in 'Syriana,' Ang Lee/Best Director for 'Brokeback Mountain' and the Best Picture/'Crash.' Aside from the music that the orchestra played at the start of each acceptance speech and Charlize Theron's ridiculous dress, it was a successful night in Hollywood. And we didn't see one Oompa Loompa.
