Veteran actress Ruby Dee's Oscar nomination for American Gangster was among this year's biggest (and most controversial) surprises. The now SAG winner has been getting considerable criticism for her very brief yet, memorable performance in the Ridley Scott hit.
If she wins the Oscar over favorites Cate Blanchett and Amy Ryan, you can attribute her win to this particular scene (and of course, the veteran factor).
What do you think? Is Ruby Dee a deserving Best Supporting Actress nominee?
