In the film industry we have seen many exceptional productions, made so by incredible special effects, animation processes, Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) and the like.

The gift of the individual performer is bared to the audience, where the audience feels the essence of the character transported by its performer.
The John Adams production has accomplished this by giving these performers the opportunity to display the essence of their talents. It is evident they gave their all.
The professionalism and talent of the entire production is of the highest quality, the realism and fidelity to the times is very impressive.
The attention to details, the very talented cast and the unique ability of Tom Hooper to capture what words cannot describe, has made this production a true work of art.
Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney professional eclectic careers are and will continue to define them as great actors. Both have reached for the best performance have not only achieved it but have surpassed it.
Paul and Laura do not only deserve the Oscar but they should be recognized has to have given their all, in an effort to help the audience better understand the complex multi-dimensional and existential realities of two historical individuals that have truly shaped the genesis and future the United States of America.
Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney have with their performance added the unique and the exceptional to an already fine production.
A truly multi-dimensional performance. Thank you Paul - thank you Laura for a rare gift.
