the only ones i've seen were Benjamin Button, Milk and The Wrestler.

i'm going to watch the others, but right now i'm rooting for Milk. oh and WallE, that movie was awesome.

and i'm sure by now we all know the only reason Heath Ledger was nominated for The Dark Knot is because he bit the big one. i think if he were still alive, they would've snubbed him without another thought, but his performance was pretty good. even though he is no Jack Nicholson.

anyway, who do you think should win each one??

I cant believe Pitt got nominated for Benjamin Button.
I loved the movie,but i didnt think there was much range or depth to his character. I dunno, it just seemed like an easy part to play.

One can argue, "Oh but he played the old man so well!"
Take away the effects and its probably nothing that spectacular.

I havnt seen any of the other pefromances yet, but theyve GOTTA be better than Pitt!

i do think BenButton is a bit overrated. it was good, but no Oscar-worthy. if they wanna nominate anyone for that, nominate Cate Blanchett. she's fantastic.

Cate Blanchett is great.

I liked Benjamin Button. I definitely think it'll be one of those movies that gets nominated a lot but barely wins a thing.

I saw Doubt last night, and I LOVED it. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams should win the Oscars they are nominated for.
