Happy New Year. Oscar nominations come out this month. Let me ease into 2013 by praising an actor who never has been nominated but should have been for his work as a real-life network TV celebrity. John Turturro excels in Quiz Show. The film looks at the game show scandal in the 1950s that lead to a Congressional investigation. Turturro is Herbert Stempel, the brainy contestant who has the right answers but the wrong looks for network purposes. Herb is a man born to be a runner-up simply because he's not handsome. He knows this and he constantly shakes his fists at The Fates.
