  1. Yes! More love for Tommy Lee Jones.

    And Mathieu Amalric! Another overlooked performance this year. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, this man expressed more emotion with one eye and a voice over than you can imagine.

  2. Am I the only one who finds it kind of tasteless to nominate Adrienne Shelley as Best Newcomer?

  3. I thought it was because it was her first time directing and writing. I'm glad that she got some acknowledgement, but it is kind of left-handed, isn't it.
