Anne Hathaway though. Far out, she was amazing. If she doesn't get the Oscar this year, there is something horribly wrong.
I like Anne Hathaway, but she probably won't get nominated. They'll probably nominate Helen Mirren, Judi Dench and/or Maggie Smith, Jennifer Lawrence, whoever stars in Zero Dark Thirty, and someone from small independent movie that only Mr Cat Dog has seen.

I'm working again so I'm finally gonna get around to seeing Les Mis on Saturday, I've abstained from listening to any of the songs that have leaked onto the internet because I don't want to ruin any of the experience for me, lol. I've especially tried to to avoid anything that features Anne Hathaway because I REAALLLLYYY don't want to hear anything from her before I watch the film, I'm soooo excited to see this!!!!!!!!!!

OSCAR NOMINATIONS AAAAAAH OSCAR NOMINATIONS AAAAAAAH!

Although, on topic, that Tom Hooper got snubbed for Best Director is not a great sign for Les Mis' hopes for Best Picture. Add Ben Affleck to that as well... looks like it's gonna be Lincoln. Still, exciting. :D

I think, even if she doesn't take home the win as is rightfully hers, Anne Hathaway will at least be nominated. This movie is kind of a big deal and there has been so much Oscar buzz around her for the role that if she is snubbed entirely it would cause much raising of eyebrows in the Academy's direction.

Sasami-san@Ganbaranai - I should not have doubted SHAFT, that first episode was fantastic. The art, the music, the totally unexpected stuff that happened, the voice cast and characters. I loved every second of it.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - Major Spice and Wolf vibes, almost skipped this but the first episode was pretty entertaining.

Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman - If Robin Hood had superpowers he would be Roman. The pacing felt off in the season opener but I guess it gives the viewers a taste of what the show will be about. Lots of potential here.

Inferno Cop - Trigger saving anime.

Gintama - Oh my word we're finally getting the Courtesan of a Nation arc animated. It's going to be wonderful, and a decent number of episodes.

It's too early to say but this might actually end up being a god season for me.

Oh, I already dropped Tamako Market. KyoAni will never top Nichijou it seems.

Amy Poehler for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series in the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Parks and Recreation is golden.

That would be nice, but it's probably not going to happen. She'll never get the love she deserves, unfortunately.

I didn't see the whole show last night, but Anne Hathaway deserves everything she gets <3

Also, so so happy Adele won for her Skyfall song!

It was a pretty good show actually. Tina Fey and Amy Phoehler were hilarious hosts. Wish that they were shown more throughout.

Yeah. It was strange that they weren't used more. Like coming back from commercials and what not

Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Miserables. I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.
The two best lines of the entire evening lmao

My favourite line in the ceremony was when Amy Poehler remarked, "When it comes to torture, I trust the woman who was married to James Cameron for three years!" Although my favourite segment of the ceremony was the Will Ferrell/Kristen Wiig introduction of the Comedy Actress Award:



"Judi Dench... where did she come from?!"

I missed that! Hilarious. When Will Ferrell comes out, you know funny stuff is going to happen.

Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell should host next time. They'd be great.

Poehler had most of the good lines. Fey seemed to be more like set up for Poehler's punch-lines. That one was great

Will and Kristen though... started good. But then it went on way too long and got annoying, just like SNL

I watched a bunch of award videos on Youtube so I'm caught up.

I enjoyed Wiig and Ferrel's little stunt, but like TRIFORCE said, it did get a little tedious near the end. Drawn out a bit too long so it was just dragging after awhile, haha. It was humorous though, and could Hathaway and Jackman talk any longer? I nearly fell asleep watching those two's speeches!

Did you catch Tommy Lee Jones when they were teasing on Meryl Streep? That killed the mood for me. :\

By the way, if you guys know who Grimes is, Emily Blunt kind of looked like her in that video. :D

This segment was by far my favorite part of the Golden Globes, every second of it was beautiful and I know how hard it was for her to get up there and confess, albeit in a delightfully roundabout way. I'm so proud of her, I've always respected Jodie and I think even her shout out to Mel Gibson was wonderful. She's such a good person.

I've always liked Jodie Foster in everything I've seen her in. Silence of the Lambs is one of my favorite movies, but I think the first movie I saw her in was Nell. I really should watch that again.

Silence of the Lambs is a fantastic movie! Sir Anthony Hopkins is quite something to behold as Hannibal Lecter.

Cat Dog, I bet you could come up with some pop culture reference for any direction this thread takes.
