    I watched a few episodes of that but got kinda bored with the general "look-at-me-I'm-Zooey-Deschanel-doing-crrrrrrrrrrazy-things" vibe it had going on. If you're into that sort of thing, then it's definitely the show for you, but it's not for me, to be honest.

    It wasn't even necessarily just her character I found funny though, I liked her roommates too.

      THANK GOD! I have been waiting for this for like a week now. And I've decided I'm going to start on the Oscar competition the second the nominees are announced because the GG one was a failure due to my poor planning and time management

      Looking for some ambient, instrumental music like that of World's End Girlfriend.
      If you aren't familiar, this sort of drone-like, layered and atmospheric almost sounds. Think post-rock.


      Can be electronic, or classical sounding.

      Forgive me if you heard of these before, but I love them (just picking a random song by each not necessarily my favorite);
      Spoiler:


      Beautiful song, skip to 1:00 if you don't wanna hear the intro.

      The Mercury Program is my *favorite* instrumental band by far.

        Regarding the Oscars, I have seen 0 of the nominations for best picture, 0 of the nominations for best actor, 1 of the nominations for best actress, 0 of the nominations for best animated feature, and yeah, I think you get the picture. Bottom line: can't feel it in me to care about the awards this year.

        I've only seen one of the nominations for Best Picture, and although I'm assured it won't win, I still hold a vain hope that it will. That is The Help, by the way. Either way, I care. SO MUCH.

        The one thing I was a little surprised by and delighted about was that Melissa McCarthy was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Bridesmaids. I know she won't win (Octavia Spencer hopefully has that award in the bag) but I can't help but think how amazing it would be for Melissa to win an Emmy and an Oscar in the same awards season!

        If Jonah Hill wins an Academy Award... thats it, I'm giving up on life.

        I completely agree. I have a hard time believing he was so good in Moneyball that he warranted a nomination for an Oscar, but far be it from me to disagree with the Academy. But if people like him start winning, the Oscars will start to lose their reputation as the big deal that they are.

          Yeah, I was surprised Jonah Hill got nominated for Oscars. Always pegged him for an incredibly average actor, but I haven't watched Moneyball yet. I'll check it out.

          Having watched Drive, getting a nomination for Best Sound Editing is well-deserved. What I don't get however, is Ryan Gosling and Albert Brooks not getting Best Actor and Supporting Actor nominations respectively, and Drive itself not getting Best Picture nomination.

          Kudos to Gary Oldman for getting a nomination after years of acting!

          Viola Davis was legendary in Doubt, even though she had only those 10 minutes on-screen. I haven't watched The Help though! This makes me want to watch it, haha.

          I am fairly certain that Viola Davis is the black Meryl Streep

            I watched The Help and Moneyball these past two days.

            Viola Davis was phenomenal as she was in Doubt. Definitely worthy of her nomination, though personally I think Glenn Close will win. Close hasn't won an Academy Award her whole career and if I had my druthers, she would be getting the win. I personally LOVE Viola Davis though, but I think she still has many opportunities ahead to redeem herself.

            Loved both Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain, but if it had to go down between the two for Best Supporting Actress, it'd be Chastain. She portrayed Celia glowingly. I loved every scene of her.

            Having watched The Help, I'd personally replace Jonah Hill with Albert Brooks. Hill gave a fine performance, but I thought Brooks from Drive was much more engaging.

            Brad Pitt deserves his nomination, definitely!

            Both were great films. Hatteberg's home-run in Moneyball gave me goosebumps of epic proportions I tell you.

            I'm working on it, so much to do so so much to do!!!!!

            Also, I went and saw Hugo today on my uncle's recommendation, it is definitely worth the 11 Oscars it was nominated for. It was magical and wonderful, I loved it!

            And Rest, I'm so glad you liked The Help but I disagree with you about Glenn Close. I think Meryl Streep will take out the award this year, and if she doesn't I will be SO ANGRY

              I heard Meryl Streep did exceptionally well for her Thatcher portrayal. Really, it's anyone's game!

              I'm planning to watch Tree Of Life soon. I don't know what to expect, people have been saying different things about it.

              I'm going to watch Zombieland tonight at my friend's, haven't seen some comedy in a while. :D

                If you've never seen anything by Terrence Malick before, the experience watching Tree of Life will definitely be 'interesting'. You'll definitely have something to say about it afterwards. Even if you have seen Malick stuff before, it's a lot more out-there than his previous work. Please come back and tell us me what you thought of it! :D

                M-Meryl Streep didn't win her Screen Actor's Guild Award......... this puts her Oscar at serious risk. Like..... if she doesn't get the Oscar for this role, then I honestly have no idea what she has to do to get another one. I'm truly stumped.

                Clearly it's Hollywood's liberal bias at work. Clearly.

                I saw The Artist the other day and I was quite happy with it. For someone who doesn't care about classic Hollywood or how the movie evoked all those old timey actors like Cary Gable and Clark Grant it was still fun and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes movies.

                  I keep telling you Viola Davis has the Oscar in the bag. You keep pushing back in denial but when Feb 26 comes along, it'll be Ms. Davis on the Kodak stage with her little gold man.

                    And Viola deserves it, her performance in The Help was amazing, but Meryl became Margaret Thatcher like nobody else could! She is universally known as the world's greatest living actress - I'm fairly sure that's her official title now or something - and yet when it comes to the Oscars she's always the bridesmaid and never the bride! It's a JOKE!

                      yeah, i just read about the Star Driver film, too.
                      but it seems like it'll just be a retelling of the series, no?
