I could have sworn he'd been nominated for Immortal Beloved.

I actually don't mind that he won. He was very charming in the film. Just think it's asinine the film ever got so much attention. Well not even attention actually, but prestige. It's really no different at all from those OSS films which I'm sure nobody (perhaps rightly) still gives two shits about.

This director and actor have made two other very entertaining throwback films, they are kind of spoofs of 1960s secret agent/ bond type films.

I am happy I watched Moneyball after Tree of Life, so I could let Brad Pitt the regular guy wipe away the memory of Brad Pitt the asshole dad.
Brad Pitt was the only quality of Tree of Life that kept my attention. Yeah, he was saddled with a tough character to empathize with, but for me he succeeded.

Crystal's got French jokes!

I do like Meryl. She seems very down to earth and is usually good for a laugh when she gets up to talk.

And she's living up to that already. Ha!

I must be crazy, as I don't think Streep's ever been any good really. But I don't care a great deal about actors. Or maybe it's just because she's never in interesting movies, so fuck her.

Also, I happen to think Mara looks fantastic tonight,

It's just cool to me that the Academy can separate individual performances from the rest of the cast. That was a challenge in this case.

Plus, Meryl Streep. Yes, she's good at acting.

The stuff I've heard about Rooney's performance is what's making me want to see the movie. I didn't want to at first because I'd seen the Swedish version and had no desire to watch the brutal stuff again. But I heard she's amazing in it.

Well, and there's Daniel Craig, which doesn't hurt.
