You know what, me too. And I think before that was the year Pulp Fiction was in it.

Doesn't mean I'm gonna do it though. For example you've been telling me every year since 2004 to watch the Oscars. How's that working out for you?

When you look back at the decade, its stunning that the supporting actor winners seem to be so much better on the whole than the lead actor winners. Like not even close.

PIC: No Country For Old Men
DIRECTOR: Coens
ACTOR: DDL
ACTRESS: Charlize
SUP. ACTOR: Ledger (the toughest category, and what it came down to was him being the most talented actor on that list)
SUP. ACTRESS: Zellweger
(another tough one, hard to imagine The Aviator or Vicki Cristina working w/o those specific actresses, but I think Zellweger put her entire soul into her role, best of her career)
