Arctic Hey thanks for posting these! did you watch the "press release"? LOL It was lame. Granted I only saw about five minutes, but it seemed really silly, like they were trying to look all important but couldn't quite pull it off.

What do you think of the results?

Robert | 111 comments I had forgotten these were even going to be announced so I missed the actual "show".. I was surprised to see "Sweeney Todd" honored - though it certainly deserves it. I haven't seen "Diving Bell" or "Atonement", so no comment there. I also thing Cate Blanchett was well-chosen for "I'm not there"..for me the biggest surprise - and most welcome one - was the award for "Extras" as best comedy series. It's the only tv program I actually made a point to watch last year...

Alison I haven't seen Atonement, but I feel like I have. Haha. I really wanted to see No Country win. But I hadn't seen the other nominations, so it's a little unfair. But I really thought it was THAT GOOD.

I thought Julie Christie was a shoe-in for the GG, as well as the upcoming Oscar (Dear God, please let us have a show!) I have seen Away from Her and she is brilliant and the most gorgeous person I have ever seen for her age (or any age). The movie is a little slow, but the pace actually suits it. It's very wintery.

Daniel Day Lewis--shoe in for the Oscar as well in my opinion. He's just a scene stealer, and so crafty. Awards people love Cate Blanchett, and they should because she's awesome and has great range. I should have listed the nominees so we could compare. Javier--of course he would win. I think he's going to get the Oscar, also.

I have seen only one episode of Extras, but I so loved Ricky Gervais on the British Office. I would give him an award, just so he'd be encouraged to keep working.

I didn't see the press release. I was a little surprised to see David Duchovney win--that was out of left field. Keep in mind, I don't get to see half of these shows or movies, but it's still fun to have an opinion. :)

Melissa (melissaharl) Hi, just joined this group so I'm coming in a little late. I thought Cate Blanchett was fabulous in I'm Not There, and I see today that she's been nominated for Elizabeth - Golden Age for the Oscars as well.

Like others I haven't seen all the nominated films or performances, but I did like Julie Christie in Away from Her. I agree that she's amazingly beautiful. Maybe it's the bone structure? As someone who's had both parents suffer from Alzheimer's or senile dementia, though, I thought that she was way too capable or aware at points. Could have been the cinematic need to telescope events.
