Reply to "What About Amistad?"

The final scene when John Adams addresses the Supreme Court.---Black Viking

The academy award for that sequence?

I didn't see the caliber of performance there.

I think Hopkins' nomination was a deference gesture to the significance of the movie.

He was the only actor nominated.

I don't think his was the best performance in the film.

In supporting roles:

I thought Hounsu's was better.

I thought Freeman's was comparable, but no 'big scene'.
