    Imagine if the cop who arrested Ms. Witherspoon had been an awards nut like the rest of us. The incident might have gone like this:

    Reese: “Do you know my name?”

    Cop: “Yeah, I know your name. And you didn’t deserve the Oscar. You stole it from Felicity Huffman. You should have been arrested for that.”

    The premise that an Atlanta cop would be aware of Transamerica, let alone a fan of the film, is enough alone to make this joke ridiculous.

    Witherspoon played June Carter Cash. That might have been on his radar.  

    Oh, Witherspoon IMO was better than Huffman in any case.

    I agree with ALL of the above.

    That’s a funny joke. I actually laughed. I guess it’s a tough crowd at GoldDerby. Another joke I read is that her biopic should be called “Do You Know Who I Am? The Reese Witherspoon Story”.

    Also, there’s no reason to criticize it as ridiculous and analyze it so much. He said “Imagine if the cop had been an awards nut like the rest of us”. It reminds me of people looking for realism and asking for details about the background of the characters when someone tells a joke.

    I prefered Keira Knightley (and I say this inspite not usually liking any of Joe Wright’s films), but I didn’t really care about any of the nominees that year. Witherspoon’s performance to me is overrated. I don’t feel she really had the spark of June. She tried as hard as possible to emulate the energy and personality, but it felt hollow to me. Knightley’s performance at least was very charming and more empathetic to me. Although had she won, the Paltrow win comparisons would’ve been inevitable. And yes, I also liked Paltrow on Shakespeare In Love, even if she wasn’t actually the best, she was better than Streep and just a tiny slight ahead of Watson for me.

    I prefer the always phenomenal Charlize Theron even in the weak North Country. One of her weakest performances, but that was one of Best Actress’ weakest years anyway.

    Funny joke though.

    That was mean. I still laughed though.

    I laughed at the joke too. And Felicity Huffman was my choice for the Oscar win that year.

    I might just be a really unfunny person, but it didn’t even get a smile for me. But then again, I had absolutely no problem with Witherspoon’s win and I don’t care about her scandal enough to even watch the infamous arrest video.

    Can the cop arrest Tom Hooper for stealing David Fincher’s Oscar? 😉

    …Why is this even a thread? I’m so tired of hearing people wine about Hoffman’s mediocre performance not winning in that godawful film.

    Ya; what a rare occurrence, someone driving over the legal limit. Such, important, global, breaking news…..
