Just as I predicted when I saw The Fighter, Christian Bale won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar tonight for his role as the pro boxer turned crack addict Dicky Eklund. Bale took over the role from American Brad Pitt, who was originally cast as Eklund.
We see here how a foreign national can come to the US and do a job, literally playing an American, better than an American. Just saying.
