Cool! Saoirse's acting was great, and although Ruby Dee was also amazing in American Gangster, I'm happy to see that she's receiving recognition for her good work. It must be hard to be an Oscar judge sometime, to choose between men and women who all deserve to win.

Thanks ovenmitt! I don't know why I made that slip — I just posted a Ruby's profile this morning! Maybe because they're two shades of pink / red :)
