Comments/Reactions
YAY for Ivana Baquero & Emily Blunt! Yay! And some love for The History Boys, even if Stephen Campbell Moore and Samuell Barnett were snubbed. Nice to see Leo got in, but disappointed for Jennifer Ehle, especially seeing as the twatty Abigail Breslin made the final 15 and she didn't Ugh. Nice to see Eva Green in there, even if she was supporting. And not that much love for Ewwnited93, which is nice. But Daniel Craig? Eww!

Saw United 93 last night. What was the big deal?

Dan said...

That's exactly what me, and Emma want to know.

Stace said...

thanks for the list and you made great picks.

DL said...

Ewww....Anne Hathaway for Supporting Actress? That's worse category fraud than Jamie Foxx in Collateral.

And I'm sorry to say that I think you're overreacting about Baquero's performance. Just watched Pan's and I didn't think she was even good at all.

I hope Mirren doesn't get nominated. So fcking overrated!

Besty said...

"Sacha Baron Cohen - Borat"
If I see this come BAFTA nominations, I'm not going to be happy.

Emma said...

DL: What?!!! Weren't you moved by her? She was incredible!

Besty: Ugh. Cohen was awful.

a visitor said...

Baquero was not especially good, but it's not like she was anywhere near bad. She was moving, but so were other performances this year. Still, to say she was better than Cruz, Dench, Mirren...? No way.

Emma said...

Thank you for your comment, a visitor. Please stop by again, a visitor! :D

I haven't seen Dench, but I read the book yesterday and cannot wait for Notes on a Scandal. Mirren was good, I thought she was amazing when I first saw The Queen, but now I'm a little "meh". But Penélope was exquisite, and she's my pick after Baquero.

You are kidding when you say Bobby's a finalist, right?

And we're all like Homer Simpson in ways that we care to admit. 8-)
