Philip Seymour Hoffman had a great year in 2007. In addition to the critically acclaimed Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (released on DVDlast week), he won an Indie Spirit Award for The Savagesand was nominated for an Oscar for Charlie Wilson's War.
The former is a black comedy about an estranged brother (Hoffman) and sister (Academy Award nominee Laura Linney) who come together to take care of their dying father (Philip Bosco), while the latter is Mike Nichols' political satire about a Texas congressman (Tom Hanks) who, along with a wealthy socialite (Julia Roberts) and a portly CIA agent (Hoffman, natch), funds the Afghan war against the Soviet Union.
