I thought I had already typed Denzel Washington. Can't believe I missed him, and I completely overlooked American Beauty. I need coffee.

I think 2005 was one of the best and hardest Oscar years with three outstanding nominees - Philip Seymour Hoffman for Capote, Heath Ledger for Brokeback Mountain, and Joaquin Phoenix for Walk the Line. I personally couldn't have chosen.
