Sally Field in Lincoln (The Last Word)

I don't think I've ever gotten repetitive goosebumps like this before. She was...amazing.

You with me?

5. I hope so. She worked her ass off to go from teen fluff to a great actress...

I thought her speech was heartfelt and refreshing. The cruel snark was simply.... cruel.

6. So true

So very rewarding. On Last Word she also talked about her "out gay son" and her unqualified support of him. She's so much more than I ever knew. Go Flying Nun!

8. After Lincoln Dies...

Sally gets so distraught she begins flying...and teaches Eleanor Roosevelt.

Ooops...spoiler alert!

9. I will be when I see this....

I keep getting e-mails from people who've seen this movie and rave. One comment about Sally Field was that she portrayed "every emotion Mary Lincoln must have had" with a look.

We've got to see this film!

10. Sally Field elevated Steel Magnolias

from cliche soap-opera with just one scene. Her graveside scene towards the end was so raw it was hard to watch.

14. I truly love that movie

and you are so right about the graveside scene. I just can't imagine losing a child. The entire cast was stellar.

15. It was stunning-an Oscar nomination is mandatory...

And I'll be surprised if she doesn't get a win. I never dreamed I would come to respect her this much but she deserved it. Incredible.

Almost as good were Daniel Day Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, Hal Holbrooke and Joseph Gordon Leavitt and the rest of the cast.
