Hopefuls are Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler and Langella for Nixon as well as Sean Penn in Milk. CCBB is supposedly a technical marvel, but does that mean the actor should get an award for sitting in a makeup chair for several hours in order to say a few lines?

Is it all about business, politics, and
trying to impress England and France
all of the time.

The movie called "Queen," was pretty good,
and I actually began to believe that the
actress really was the Queen and all, but
damn!!!

Do I get all excited and want to run out and tell
my friends that they really ought to see the
movie because they will really enjoy it.
HELL no.

Do I think that many actors did a fine job,
this year? I sure do.

But I think that Brad and Angelina did a better
job, and the ticket sales show it.

The only reason that I think
that Brad and Angie might NOT get the gold,
this year, would be because the executives
might be afraid that they would have to pay
them even bigger salaries, than they already
earn...and deserve.

(IMO)

By the way:

I stayed up late, last night and I posted
some very nice video dedications
from www.youtube.com

and one was a tribute to Brad Pitt
called, "Brad Pitt The Most Beautiful Man
In The World,"

and another one called,

"Brad Pitt My Favorite Pictures of Him"

and others.

They got pulled off.

Well, they were pretty long ones. Five minutes.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
