  1. Jim Carrey for The Truman Show = amen. Also Colin Firth and Heath Ledger. 😀

    • It’s such a crime that Jim Carrey hasn’t received any Oscar nods yet The Truman Show or Eternal Sunshine already merits him, to say the least, a nom. And I even preferred Colin’s A Single Man perf and Heath’s Brokeback Mountain one than their Oscar winning performances. Nevertheless, at least they received Oscars. 🙂
