Toronto Film Festival 2004 Winner 

Reuters reports that top honors at this year's Toronto Film Festival were taken by Hotel Rwanda (People's Choice Award) and Omagh (Discovery Award).

Among the actors being chatted up at Toronto as potential Oscar nominees are Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda), Liam Neeson (Kinsey), Jamie Foxx (Ray - I've seen the trailer, and this one looks great) and Kevin Spacey (Beyond the Sea). No mention was made in the Reuters article of actress nominees. What's up with that?

The Washington Post nodded to the same actors, but also gave notice on some of the actresses. Annette Benning was noted to have "drawn high praise" for Being Julia, but this note was made external to the Oscar commentary. The women in the same sentence as "Oscar" were Joan Allen (Yes) (I think she's just fabulous) and Laura Linney (Kinsey and also P.S.).
