Congrats Dianne Wiest!
I like Dianne Wiest. I find her amazingly talented and just overall brilliant.
Her work in HBO's In Treatment was perhaps the best acting performance I saw this past year. As a result, I was very happy to hear that she won the Emmy last night for Best Supporting Actress.
I also have a little anecdote re: her. She and I were in the same line at the airport. I forget which podcast I was listening to but when I saw her I kept thinking, 'Well, if I tell her: I just love your work!' I bet I'll make her uncomfortable. Plus, it felt like a big to-do to turn off the iPod and move my bags with my feet at the same time. Plus, public praise makes many people uncomfortable so, instead, I smiled furtively at her and went about my business which at that moment consisted of sending someone a text message about Dianne Wiest being in the same line as I at the airport.
Do check out HBO's In Treatment when you get a chance. I believe I reviewed it when it first played last January.
