In a choice that proves the Hollywood Foreign Press likes people with issues as much as the Academy does, Felicity Huffman wins for her apparently incredible work as a transsexual in Transamerica. She's wearing an awesome dress, by the way - despite that, however, the crowd is bored. Or at least she thinks it is. Happily, she's ignoring them and just doing her thing. (Aw. Her mom thinks little Felicity is on a TV show called The Women. That's sort of close - I wonder which one of them is Joan Crawford.) She also salutes "the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation, and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are," (Thank you, Tivo.) which strikes me as much classier than Tom Hanks outing a guy to honor him when hewon for being marginalized.
