And the Oscar Goes To...

I just wanted to voice my happiness at seeing Javier Bardem win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor last night for his chilling role as Anton Chigurh in the Coen Brothers' NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. As far as memorable performances of the year go, Bardem's was by far the most memorable, or recognizable for that matter. You mention his name, and most people, even those who have yet to see NO COUNTRY will know 2 things: #1) What movie he was in, and #2) What his character looks like (especially the awesome hairdo). And that, to me, has memorable written all over it. Nice work, Mr. Bardem.
