"... Tilda Swinton is wasted in a thankless role ..."?!?

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided that she was good enough to be nominated for a Golden Globe for her work in this film.

The prestigious British Academy of Film and Television Arts decided she was good enough to bestow her work with a BAFTA Film Award.

And the holy grail of film acting, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (where her own peers vote for the award) decided to give her an Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role!

On top of that, nine other industry and/or film critics associations deemed her work worthy of - at the least - a nomination.

So, the question remains, what did Mr. Gaita do while he was watching the film? Was he distracted by the phone, or maybe popping some popcorn? I'm just curious!

I was grossly under-rested when I saw Michael Clayton in the theater and slept through at least a third of it. Even under these circumstances, I could tell Ms Swinton was anything but 'wasted' Her reaction in the final scene alone is the kind of brilliantly subtle acting that's often overlooked - I'm really glad that her performance was as well recognized as it was.
