Saturday Extra: John Turturro for Best Supporting Actor

It's the home stretch for Oscar candidates, and I'd like to put in a vote for an unlikely candidate.

"Transformers" is probably the most entertaining movie I've seen all year, and Turturro's performance as the goofiest government agent ever is the greatest comic performance of the past five years. (Sorry, Borat.)

He probably could have won for any of a half-dozen other roles ("Do the Right Thing," "Barton Fink"), but it seems appropriate to finally win for a robot movie that's so oddly...human.
