I did well this year. Of the major award nominees, I've only not seen four: Vera Drake, Kinsey, Being Julia and Motorcycle Diaries. However, I also didn't see any of the Best Foreign nominees, when usually I see at least two...

What's with the M$B love? Not having seen it, I'm a little surprised.

I saw it today, finally. And, quite simply, of the five it is the best picture. Just...I mean, when you see it, you'll see. It's surprising, and I don't surprise easily.

Hilary Swank is...incredible. Just...wow.

I was all about Don Cheadle, but...Clint, who I normally don't like, made me like him. Plus, he's the only nominee who isn't playing a real guy; so he's acting more than imitating or recreating.

Morgan Freeman has never won an Oscar, and the only other person who comes close to taking it is Clive Owen, but he played the same role on the stage, so that seems like cheating to me somehow.

But not director. Sorry, Clint, but it's time to finally reward the guy who directed the other boxing movie.

You didn't like the "Believe" song from Polar Express? And you call yourself a Sox fan!

I never saw Polar Express...That fake Tom Hanks gave me the heebies.

And the Accidentally in Love song is so catchy...I didn't realise til much later that it was new for the film and not already around.

Much as I like Shrek 2, I've got all kinds of love for The Incredibles, and I expect and want it to win Best Animated Feature, and secretly want it to win for Best Screenplay. Of course, I say that not having seen Eternal Sunshine...

I had to go with Shrek 2, for two main reasons. One, it surpassed the original, and two, it created a wonderful, iconic character in Puss in Boots.

Vera Drake is wonderful. And I never want to see it again, I don't think.

Motorcycle Diaries is also Amazing. And I *do* want to see it again.

Mike Leigh tends to have that effect on me.

sometimes those are the best movies, though.
