    I loved the acting but it just didn't really do anything for me.

        That sounds like torture. Unless by watched you mean it was nothing more than background noise for your fornication.

              • The Academy are the ONLY people who liked The Reader.

                Dark Knight gets snubbed. Wow. Best Picture AND Director.

                IN BRUGES NOMINATED FOR ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY! YES!

                • The Reader love is sickening. That Daldry got nominated over Aronofsky and Nolan and the same with Best Picture is a joke.

                  • I havent seen Reader, but from ALL indications, it wasnt that great at all.

                    I guess its 100% true.

                    Do a movie about the Holocaust... OSCAR!

                    • God, I really thought TDK would get in the Best Picture category. There could be some severe backlash for this. I mean, they only got what, Ledger in Supp Actor out of the major awards? Are they assuming that the moment with Ledger winning will be good enough? I dont get it.




                      Comment


                      • Also should be noted the lack of Rev Road love. My personal fav female performance of the year doesnt get nominated.

                          I think that along with The Wrestler and Wall-E getting snubbed for The Reader should have everyone confused. The Reader got totally mediocre reviews and the others were the best reviewed movies of the year. I just don't get it. And since I've seen all 4, I can say that WHAT THE ****.
