Thoughts
- Philip Seymour Hoffman was completely nominated for the wrong film! Whilst he was good in The Savages, that film belonged to Laura Linney. His best performance of the year was in Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead.
- I’m really happy that Ellen Page has an award now, even though Tang Wei was my favourite from that category.
- Yay for Schnabel winning Best Director and Kaminski getting cinematography!
