I thought Helena Bonham Carter was brilliant, too. Geoffrey Rush is always great but I think he and Firth were both so good because of the chemistry, not their individual performances.

If you are trying to be funny, you will have to try much harder than this to keep up with the fights here. They are way funnier than your lame joke about a stutter.

No. People who aren't IDIOTS read Consumer Reports. They don't take corporate donations for their evalution of products.

Fact: Voters are former Oscar winners and predominantly AMERICAN.
Of course it gives awards to films from other countries but the OSCARS is ALL AMERICAN. You are lucky to participate so stop your whining about semantics. rolls eyes...I didnt' say it was for Americans only, I said the Foreign Press does the Golden Globes and then you went apeshitcrazy...why, I don't know. I've wasted too many keystrokes as it is.

well, that's your opinion.

but Colin Firth's role was very complex and not very easy to portray. Colin deserves the Oscar Best Actor. he gives justice that very hard to portray role.

Geoffrey Rush maybe a great actor, but his role is not as hard and complex, that is why he is nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

i believe Christian Bale will win the Oscar Best Supporting Actor. his gave a brilliant portrayal in The Fighter.

LOL!

Both films were most enjoyable - Speech and Grit.

Planet of the Apes was good at the time too :-)
