Will Phillip Seymour Hoffman Be a Victim of the ‘Bode Curse’?

philip_seymour_hoffman.jpgBy the way, the Oscars is Sunday, and one nominee in particular has been getting some Bode Miller-style cover treatment in the lead-up to the Olympics of Film. A quick scan of the newsstand has Capote star Phillip Seymour Hoffman — one of our favorite L.E.S.-sightings — on no fewer than four glossy covers, including Jason Binn’s L.A. Confidential and, oddly, Paste, which we thought was a music magazine.

Nonetheless, a toast to “P.S.Ho,” his apparently efficient agent and a Best Actor nod. Hopefully he’ll sidestep the “Bode Curse,” and his night at the Academy Awards will turn out better than Miller’s fortnight and a half in Torino.
