    We'll see how the evening plays out.
    I found Tommy Lee Jones totally bland and forgettable in Lincoln. I really don't get the love. From here, it looks like de Niro may not be able to win after all (though I'm still rooting for him, and Hoffman). I don't mind Hathaway's win at all (I'm not fond of her performance in retrospect, but I understand the love, unlike TLJ).

    Very, very happy J-Law won. Her speech was genuine and I loved it. I'm also fairly glad Chastain lost Oscar traction with this loss (I love her, but I wouldn't give her an Oscar for a film where I have nothing in particular to say about besides its technical merit).

    Pretty cool that Argo won Best Ensemble (I'd rather it go to the much smaller cast of SLP, but I'm okay with whatever Argo wins).

    Yay for Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin winning again :D Cranston winning is also awesome, as well as Danes.

    I was a little disappointed when Claire Danes won because even though she's fantastic in Homeland, I can't help but feel people just vote for that show because it's new and therefore it's trendy to vote for that show. The older shows get nominees that rarely get any love because everybody's always so focused on the new kid on the block.

    Thrilled with Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Bryan Cranston. All of them more than deserve what they get for those roles.

      That's why I'm happy Damian Lewis -didn't- win (Cranston winning makes it a win-win for me). Homeland's a good show but Season 2 was all sorts of "What? Why?" moments and it doesn't deserve another sweep like it got for Season 1.

      Homeland's the new "It". Mad Men is shelved.

      Also I prefer Cranston over anyone else. :D

      Speaking of Breaking Bad... Guys. Guys. Jane Kaczmarek to make an appearance on Breaking Bad!

          Who knew there were so many film critics societies?

          And what is a film critic society anyway? I feel like I have one with my friends whenever we see a movie together. Wait, idea! PC should have one as well.

          Can we go back in time to 2008 and give Angelina Jolie our award forBest Actress that Kate Winslet stole that year?

          And give no awards to Slumdog Millionaire?

            I'm secretly hoping Breaking Bad derails and turns into a Malcolm in the Middle prequel. :x

            I can't believe Kate Winslet justified her Oscar win 5 years later with... Movie 43.

            I would give a bunch of the awards for Milk that year. True, that's the only movie of the ones nominated for best picture that I saw, but it seemed like a bland year for movies on the whole so I'm probably not wrong in thinking it's the best of the bunch.

            Actually, no. Give Wall-E all the awards. That really was the best thing that year.

              I loved WALL-E and Tropic Thunder, but the best film from that year was, truly,



              Colin Farrell was so bloody fantastic in this.

                They're literally just lots of critics in a city/metropolitan area that meet once a year to vote on awards. When they were first thought up of (I think the New York Film Critics Circle was the first in 1935), I guess it was just easier to invite critics from the area, as opposed to nationwide. Hence lots and lots and lots of critics societies that now vote on random stuff and have every award analysed by the Oscar blogosphere.

                I didn't like Tropic Thunder when it came out, but when I watch it again sometimes, it's a lot better than I originally thought. Not my favorite movie, though, or anywhere near it.

                Tropic Thunder... is that the one with Ben Stiller and Jack Black as movie stars and it turns out the movie setting is a real war zone that they have to make it through? If so my feelings are pretty much the same, it's not a great movie by any stretch but it's one which is definitely good enough for watching in bed when you're too lazy to change the channel. XD

                  But guys... how can you not like that Alpa Chino bit at the start?

                  I'd type up a couple lines but it'd be too risqué. u_u

                  I think the problem with Tropic Thunder for me, even never having seen it, is that it's one of those movies that's so quotable that people begin to abuse the privilege.

                  If I ever hear somebody say "never go full retard" or "what do you mean 'you people'" one more time I might invent a time machine, go back and kill whoever wrote the script so that I could stop the movie being made.

                  It's a new reality competition show on TBS that pits the nerdiest of nerds against each other in the nerdiest of challenges. It's actually a pretty nice show because if you yourself are a fan of things comic-related (or things like King of Thrones) there are a lot of references of such that can be enjoyed. I'm terrible at describing things but it's a cool show regardless. XD

                  That reminds of a game a friend of mine got called Geek Battle where you've got topics like comics, games, fantasy, science, technology, etc. and the questions run from asking you about ports on a laptop to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's pretty fun. Even if you're a pretty nerdy person you still find there are areas you know very little about so it's got a lot of unpredictability.

                  Apply that to more 3D-scape challenges and it's really quite the same. One of the ending challenges week before last was two competitors answering questions about things from Game of Thrones to Chronicles of Narnia, etc, and the ones who answered correctly rolled a large sixteen sided die down a hill into erect figures of knights/wizards and the like.

                  That seems a little over the top. And 16-sided die? Should have been 20-sided.

                  Warm Bodies was a great movie guys, I highly recommend if you want/need something to see for Calentine's day or just whenever. Had a great soundtrack too.
