How Is It Possible that Hillary Swank Has Two Oscars?!

Jodie Foster, Sally Field, Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Vivien Leigh.....HILLARY SWANK?!

I never saw Boys Don't Cry, and I'll never see Million Dollar Baby either. Because I hate Hillary Swank. I remember her from her Beverly Hills 90210 days. She was Steve's single-mom, Peach Pit waitress girlfriend. She was so frickin' annoying. And stupid. I couldn't stand her. I did a little happy dance when she and her kid went back to North Dakota or wherever they were supposed to be from. Thank God, I said.

As it turns out, it was her firing from 90210 that left her free to take the role in Boys Don't Cry. I was intrigued by the movie because it deals with a transgender person, and for whatever reason, transgender people are generally included with the gay, lesbian, and bisexual community. But Hillary Swank? No. I had just gotten rid of her from 90210. I would not endure her stupidity nor her gigantic jaw again. I heard the movie was good, but I just couldn't bring myself to see it. When she won the Oscar, I thought, "She just got that because she took such a difficult, controversial role." I let it go. Hey, even Cher won an Oscar.

But two Oscars? That's putting her in some rarified air. I can't believe it. I cannot believe it. What is going on in this world that Hillary Swank has two Oscars?

  • Kerrie, Glad you're on my side!

    Dan, People tell me that her body is great, but I can't get past her face because, frankly, a good body isn't that hard to find in Hollywood, so I require the whole package.

    Jean, Did you hate her on 90210? You didn't say that you hated her there, so I'm afraid that you were....a fan? Yikes!

  • It's like Leonardo Dicaprio getting a lifetime achievement award. Our standards are lowering maybe as we consider exactly who deserves to be classified as truly great?

  • Our standards are lowering, I'll give you that. And I'm still not so sure what the deal is with Leonardo Dicaprio. Is it just me or does he still look like a geeky, skinny, undersized teenager?
