Because she’s his, he walked the line…

I admit it. I was skeptical. I heard the words together and I thought somebody was taking the piss. I thought something wasn’t right there. Those words were ‘Reese Witherspoon, Oscar winner‘. Star of such weighty movies as ‘Sweet Home Alabama‘ and ‘Legally Blonde‘. She was likeable and more than competent in these movies, and others such as Cruel Intentions. But Oscar Material? Surely Not.

As it turns out I was wrong. She was Oscar material. A deserved winner ahead of her fellow nominees including previous winners Dame Judi Dench and Charlize Theron. Not too shabby. She turned in a great performance as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line. She proved that she can take on the serious roles and also had the voice for the role (despite some overly gratuitous use of autotune at times). It’ll be interesting to see what she’s like in Rendition.
