Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments The biggest movie/entertainment award show in the US (yes, I know we have a million of them ... can't get enough of themselves, I guess), the Oscars, will be airing on Sunday, February 27th.

I haven't seen all of these, haven't heard of some, but thought it might be fun to see if ya'll wanted to pick your winners here and see how close you are once the winners are announced.

I'll post the list of nominees in below. You can just list your choice for winner.

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments I noticed that "The Social Network" won a ton of Golden Globe awards. Including best picture, which I thought was a joke. I liked the movie, but definitely didn't think it was better than the others listed. Hope it doesn't win an Oscar. Just my opinion. ;)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments I've marked the winners in bold.

CyberAlmu | 302 comments I so happy Javier Bardem didn't make it for the Actor in a Leading Role...


message 6: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments Don't like him? I liked him in "Love in the Time of Cholera" and he was a trip in "No Country for Old Men". I haven't seen "Biutiful" though.

CyberAlmu | 302 comments Not at all.
Maybe he is a good actor, which I don't know because I dont watch his movies. I don't like him because he's a . I also dislike Spanish movies, in general. Too much drama

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments I haven't seen any Spanish movies, that I'm aware of, but have seen a soap opera or two and they are seriously dramatic. Funny to watch even though I only pick up 1 out of 20 words throughout.

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2488 comments The only movies I had seen were Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland.

I watched. I really wish they'd trim the show down. Less skits, tributes etc.., And start it at 8 instead of 8:30. I have to get up at 6:30 and I just can't stay up until 11:30.


message 10: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments They always run long with that one. Plus, they drag out the "big awards" till the end to get you to keep watching. That's why I like the Golden Globes better.

We've seen all the Best Picture movies except for Winter's Bone and Toy Story 3.
