When Hugh Laurie won for House, I thought she might have a shot. Hollywood Foreign Press...she's foreign...**crossed fingers**
But alas, biopics and confused sexuality carried the night.
It had to be kind of an awkward moment in the casting process when the producer called Felicity Huffman and said...
"We think you'll be perfect for this role."
"Really? What's it about?"
"Transvestite. You'll be perfect...er...I mean I don't think you look like a man."
"A transvestite? Why not call Nicolette Sheri..."
"Definite Oscar possibility."
"I'll do it!"
