Yeah...I remember last night I made a comment to you...hahaha...about how "all you do on your blog is review movies"..hahahaha! That's cool, I know nothing about movies. The irony of it is that I was actually into dramatic arts but changed my mind.

I just made a comment about you on my blog too, curiously enough. Ve a leer

If you ranked someone as 1, does that mean you think they'll win? I ask becasue you picked Reese for best actress. I saw the movie, loved it, and thought she was amazing. I don't know that I would pick her to win though.

And Reese is totally gonna win.

1. You have the movie categories dead on, with Brokeback for sure winning.

2. I'm only banking on Lee for director. This category is always crazy.

3. 5th one's a wild card for actor for sure. Why isn't Ralph Fiennes nominated and Weisz is?

4. Don't know what to think about actress. Love Reese, sure Felicity is good but I think this one sucks more than supporting actor.

5. Gotta see Gardener. Weisz. This one's up in the air. Love Keener, not sure what they'll do with Bello if anything, they'll nominate Williams just so they can ignore her, and don't even get me started about Thandie Newton from Crash. I can hardly fucking stand to see her left out. I'd have put McDormand ahead of Junebug though.

6. If Jake is nominated, I'll be happy. That's it.
