I :hearts: Babel. Many people just don't have the capacity to understand it, so they instead, classify it as shit.

I'm pretty sure those who nominated her have already viewed the movie. What's kind of funny to me is how folks who haven't even seen her performance in Dreamgirls instantly have a problem with her recieving a nomination. :o

I mean, really?? I like Beyonce and all, but we've all seen her act, and I can't imagine any of her acting is worthy of any nominations :D

I wonder why Hudson gets a supporting actress nom, when her character's supposed to be the star of the movie?

I took a shit today which looked and smelled exactly like the two previous shits I took.

That's enough proof for me, so I classified Iñarritu's third film using the same system.

I hope Sacha Baron Cohen shows up as himself and not as Borat. He's actually sexy when he's cleaned up.

Babel was shit as was brad Pitt's performance. Rinko Kinkuchi was good as was Adriana Barraza but anyone with a background in Telenovelas could have done thos crying/desperation scences. Some could have even done it better.

I do however love Amores Perros, didn't see 21 grams though.

Alejandro González Iñárritu is an amazing director.

Remember this! Pia Zadora has won a Golden Globe. The Globes people today just nominate and vote for who they think will win Oscars in order to puff up the legitimacy of their awards, but within the industry, the Globes are shit and actors don't care.

I love Babel, but I feel that Brad Pitt really ruined the movie for me. He just couldn't pull off those crying/yelling scenes and it made that segment of the movie unbelievable for me. Iñárritu should've went with Sean Penn again.

I can't believe Hugh Jackman was just fucking ignored like that (THE BEST MALE PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR) and Leo was nom'd for his annoying accent in Blood Diamond.

Happy for Cruz, Mirren, Blunt, Rinko, & Ejiofor though.

Babel was awesome, so was The Departed, I hope Leo gets the award in the bag:)
As for Kinkuchi, well, she played bad, but ever since seing her everything:o I can't look at a japonese girl like before:o

Can't wait to see Babel and Dreamgirls... the story isn't appealing for me but with Condon as director must be good :D

I know everybody talks about Meryl, but for me it was Blunt and Tucci the ones who were great... Maybe is because we all are used to Streep being great in all her films :o :p

well, Meryl was the Queen Bee in the movie but Emily got most of the laugh-lines in the movie and was memorable. She even stole some scenes from the Queen Bee. I'm glad she's nominated :D:D but too bad she won't win.

Btw, she is also nominated for best supporting actress in TV/mini-series which prove that she might very well be the breakout actress this year ;)

Few observations :
Little Children gets nominated, meaning it'd boast their chance for the fifth slot.
Can the Clint-love get anymore obvious :o.
No Lauren or Kelly from GG :sad:. Anyway, Lorelai has been very whiny this season. Not liking the latest season.
It looks like it's going to be Whitaker/Mirren year.

I know. Gosling really got snubbed. He held that movie together and he is always amazing in any part he plays. I thought The Notebook would be his big break, but I think he wants to stick to low-key indies and not the award-winning type movies, and I admire that.

True, she stole a few scenes in that movie. And Meryl herself said that she considered Emily Blunt one of the best actresses she's ever worked with.

I'm always terrified of the Leo-with-an-accent roles and Blood Diamond just confirmed my fears. Anyway, the film was ok by the end.

For me, it was OK, since I am unfamiliar with a white SA accent, it seemed OK, he even attempted to speak some broken English which he definately nailed. I liked Blood Diamond much more than Babel or the Fountain, but then again I am an Action and Adventure Freak:wavey:
