Matt Damon Hilary Swank makes her first crying-husband-less awards show appearance since pre-90210 to present Best Actor. It seems like there's an awful lot of clapping for Terrence Howard ...

But Philip Seymour Hoffman takes it, and all I can say is: ugh. Fine performance, but what a nothing film. Heath Ledger and Terrence Howard both gave performances this year that not only changed their own respective careers – they took characters that could have easily slipped into ciphers and turned them into icons. So, heavy sighs from the Cinematical camp on this one – let's hope AMPAS gets it right.
