The Oscars

They stopped using white actors in blackface to play black characters. They mostly stopped using white actors with black wigs to play Asian and Native American characters. When are they going to stop using pretty actors to play unpretty characters and thin actors to play unthin characters?

SFGate reports:
Zellweger won for playing a character in frumpy clothes and a layer of dirt from working the fields, a year after "Cold Mountain" co-star Nicole Kidman received the lead-actress Oscar for wearing a fake nose to simulate Virginia Woolf's plain-Jane features in "The Hours." This year's lead-actress front-runner, Charlize Theron of "Monster," gained 30 pounds and was disguised behind dark contact lenses, false teeth and splotchy makeup.
