I find it kind of hilarious how many of the movies nominated for the Best Pictures were so badly received : The Reader, Mamma Mia, Burn After Reading, Vicky Christina Barcelona all got pretty bad reviews, but they are exactly the kind of movies that I could see the Eurotrash, excuse me the Foreign press, loving.

In Bruges should have been nominated for everything it could be. Brendan Gleeson, awesome, the script, amazing. Still, when the world appreciates Colin an angel gets its wings.

I actually liked Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I thought it was funny. I didn't like Mamma Mia. It was painful at times. There is no reason for that movie to be on that list.

I really love Bardim and Penelope Cruz, so I may have to rent it.

Mamma Mia looked like everyone was trying so hard to have a good time they were going to pull something.

I thought of you when I heard the news, Mary. Knew you'd be happy. I liked Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Its a funny movie with a great soundtrack. I was disappointed with Mamma Mia.

I'm hoping to see Frost/Nixon this weekend. From the clips I've seen, it looks good. I'm also probably seeing Last Chance Harvey Saturday as part of Talk Cinema.

Anne Hathaway was amazing in Rachel Getting Married. Her performance really screamed award nomination. (Which is good because I'll be disappointed if Meryl Streep wins. I'm getting tired of people's love affair with her.)

Javier Bardem is up against Colin which is a shame because his performance was excellent. He was funny and you could completely see why people would sleep with him at a drop of a moment.

Yay!!! for Mad Men and Jon Hamm. As well as Tina & 30 Rock.

Well, like I said, they did get a few things right.

Emma Thompson, Heath Ledger, Brendan Gleeson, RDJ, the entire Actor in a Drama list is good (though I could include others). NPH, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey...all good stuff. And January Jones was nominated! For some reason that's a pleasant surprise.

I'm so happy about Colin and In Bruges I'm not even going to bitch about BSG or Life or Pushing Daisies. Watch me.

The television nods were all very solid. We are living in a t.v. era, it is where the interesting and creative work is being done. We need a film renaisance, like the early 90s.

Ok, computer did something weird so sorry if this double posts.

The Eurotrash comment is about the press alone, those people freak me out. Please don't throw rocks at the ugly American.

Our culture is so young that we don't know any better.

Anyway, the other thing I was trying to type was I wish that Mariska Hargity and Tony Shalhoub and the other multiaward winning ilk would offer to not be nominated for a few years. They must have boxes full of statues.

OMG yes! I wish they would take a cue from Oprah (yeah, I said it!) and bow out. It's just disappointing anymore.

misreall, you know that 25% of my excitement is about who's going to show up at the awards ceremony. ;-)

I'm so glad I did my movie meme a day before Colin got the nomination. He was just brilliant in In Bruges, and so was Brendan Gleeson. They were hilarious and heartbreaking and riveting to watch.

I doubt either one will win the actor award, since fans of the movie will probably split their votes (and I'd hate to choose between them, that's for sure) but if only I can see In Bruges win for Best Comedy and Heath Ledger win for Supporting Actor, I will not complain (much) about anything else.
