Jamie Foxx in Ray

Watching it right now. Do you think he deserved the Oscar?

Yes, he was excellent. I don't like how he comes across but he's a very good actor.

A very well-deserved Oscar.

Interesting year. He beat Cheadle in Hotel Rawanda, Depp in Neverland, DiCaprio in The Aviator, and Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby.

Cheadle and Eastwood (it’s his best performance) had some decent buzz, but Foxx was lengths ahead and won the bulk (if not all) of the other awards. That Oscar was his the minute the film premiered.

He was good but Ray is on the bland side, a run of the mill 2000’s biopic. I would’ve voted for Don Cheadle in Hotel Rwanda that year.

I thought his performance was fantastic, and I could not take him seriously in anything because of his character Wanda, from In Living Color.

He really did a fantastic job transforming into Ray, vs giving a great impersonation.
