Positive Thoughts with Penélope Cruz

So Penélope's not playing a prostitute, a historical figure, a Holocaust survivor or a victim of mental illness... I still think her Oscar odds are pretty good. As my latest "Signatures" post suggests, things should all work out if she just stays positive.

Then again... if she couldn't nab an Oscar for playing a pregnant HIV-positive nun who helps drug addicted transvestite prostitutes... All bets are off.

But I'm leaving the positive thoughts to Penélope.

I'm certainly pulling for Ms. Cruz. My favorite performance of the year by any actor.

I'm comforted by the fact that she'll be amazing in "Broken Embraces" and thus eligible in a lead role next year. But I'd rather she just double up.
