George Clooney said a day or so ago in Berlin that he doesn’t expect to win any Oscars on March 5th. I don’t know about that. He’s such a good politician and schmoozer and so well liked that he might just take the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his acting in Syriana…for putting on weight, growing a beard and looking vaguely bewildered and lost, or in other words for not playing a variation of that same guy he’s been playing over and over since One Fine Day. The Oscar should go to Cinderella Man‘s Paul Giamatti, but the momentum is swinging toward George…I think.
