Everyone has their Academy Award favorites, and someone has to win and someone has to lose. It was great to see Jamie Foxx win for his amazing portrayal of Ray Charles in Ray.
Morgan Freeman also won best supporting actor. The injustice I mentioned was not committed last night, it has been committed over the course of several years, because the Oscar that Mr. Freeman won last night was his first ever. Unbelievable.
I’ve been watching Morgan Freeman since I was a little boy and he was on “The Electric Company.” He has had many memorable roles, from principal Joe Clark in “Lean on Me” to chauffer Hoke in “Driving Miss Daisy”, to his amazing performance in one of my favorite films, “The Shawshank Redemption”. There have been many more, and I look forward to many more of his films and to seeing him win the recognition he deserves.
