Amanda, when is Tuessday? That's for all the shit you give me about my spelling. Curious to know though, you put Meryl in your pick for best actress. I would have thought her to be supporting. How do you decide if someone is supporting, or lead? I guess it's obvious in most cases, but I would have thought Anne Hatheway would be considered lead in that movie with Meryl being supporting. Although, I suppose there can be 2 leads.
