Oscars: Melissa Leo wins supporting actress

February 27, 2011 |  6:05 pm

It was both poignant and heartening to see Kirk Douglas having a great time on stage, the stroke making the words a little tough, but the humor putting things over the top. Timing is everything, and he had it.

No surprise that Melissa Leo won. She's had a tidal wave lifting her into tonight, and the role was terrific. I loved her asking Douglas to pinch her. He obliged.

No one's going to debate this one. Emotion overtaking her, nice that we're getting our first bleep and real emotion.

Very cool.
