Winner: Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line

Jamie Foxx, it seem, can't deliver a joke. But after that leaden introduction, the award for Best Actress went to Reese Witherspoon, as expected. Witherspoon seemed to be digging into an extra-deep barrel of Southern charm, and yet that seemed fitting for the role. Despite an obsession with the phrase 'real woman' in her speech, Witherspoon's long-overdue Oscar is now hers .. and it may be that last week's record-breaking paycheck for her talents and star-power in a leading role may now be a bit more of a bargain.
