Hmmmm one person reinvents what a film can be like, the other makes a competent action film...

She's Sandra Bullock for God's sake. And the movie is just a cliché.

OK... The Milk of Sorrow didn't win, and despite the fact that I'm Peruvian, I don't think it to be a sad thing. Really, I didn't like the movie, I'd like an actually *good* Peruvian movie to win the Oscar next time... would be cool :)

nice for Argentina, though. Latin American cinema ftw! :)


I thought The Milk of Sorrow was quite good. Very bizarre, darkly humorous.

Carey Mulligan, IMO. But she is less than half Bullock's age, so they probably figure she'll be around for a while.

Finally, I can actually access the forum. Going through 20 pages is a little daunting though. And Kathryn Bigelow is 58. Hottest old chick ever*

*: not counting Helen Mirren's tits.

The Hurt Locker for Best Picture.

I think that may be the only one I got right that James didn't.

Hopefully, everything's back to normal:

Post #14 (12:02 am EST):

I think I'd enjoy these personal tributes to the actor/actress nominees if it wasn't so damn late. These are the kinds of things that would work for Oscar telecasts clocking in around 3 hours. Now that we're headed for something that will clock in at >3.5 hours, it's just too much filler. What amazes me is how good a job was done at cutting out a lot of the fluff and how badly the clock was still managed. This is still an instance of 2 to 2.5 hours of content being stretched out to 3.5 hours, and not by commercials.

Award #19: Best Actress - Sandra Bullock [14/19] - So there will be no real surprises. All four of the acting awards went as expected.

Acceptance speech: ** out of **** - Probably the most gracious speech of the night, but she then launched into a neverending shopping list of thank-yous. When she got teary at the end, it felt like she was giving a performance.

Award #20: Best Director - Kathryn Bigelow [15/20] -

Is Barbra Streisand the "special guest"? I hope not. If that's the case, what a letdown.

Acceptance speech: **1/2 out of **** - generic stuff with about 20 thank yous.

Award #21: Best Picture - THE HURT LOCKER [15/21]

Was it just me, or was this rushed? Hanks didn't even read the list of nominees - just BANG "the winner is..."

Acceptance speech: ** out of **** - typically rambling.

15/21 is a little below my average for the past few years, but well within my usual range.

Some final closing thought in tomorrow's ReelThoughts column. I'll leave this forum open for a few days for comments. Hopefully, no more crashes. :)

$700 million just doesn't buy what it used to.

I'm sure someone in the last 20 pages said it, but IB deserved to go home with more. At least Original Screenplay.
