She was terrific in both movies and Sister Act as well.

I am actually watching the view because I like her - I cannot stand the other women talking over each other.

That is one of my favorite Oscar moments. I love it when an actor that we love,who wouldn't normally be an Oscar contender ,gets the award. That's why I was Sandra Bullock to win so bad.

I just adore her. After seeing The Color Purple, I will always think of her as a heroine. ...And always fear Danny Glover.
