Hurt's so good!

I was thrilled this morning to see William Hurt on the Oscar nomination list. Your review of his work in "A History of Violence" was one of the reasons I went to see it. When you said he “sounded notes we’d never heard before”, you were so on the mark. What a fantastic feature role!

I am sorry that his nomination was at the expense of Don Cheadle’s [in "Crash"], but William Hurt definitely deserved to be recognized. He, like Jeff Daniels [not nominated for "The Squid and the Whale'], is one of the unsung great actors of our time.
