Susan Sarandon of "spanking grown men at an Of Montreal show" fame, of course.

I hope that this year they go back to just showing clips of every nominee for acting categories, instead of having those tedious cloying introductions by the other actors like last year.

I guess it would be cool if a female director won Best Director, though I have zero interest in seeing The Hurt Locker.

I actually liked the intros by other actors.

If Bullock doesn't win, I'll finally give the boycott a rest and see Avatar. Fair trade, Academy?

Same here, it went a long way towards enforcing the honor of being nominated and a part of the discussion as opposed to just winning the award. It's the matchup between presenter/actor that makes it worthwhile though.

So was Sandra Bullock that good in her role? Or is this her Erin Brockovich moment?

I don't know who I'd want to win over Bullock. Meryl could finally get another Oscar after her bajillionth nomination (she hasn't actually won in many years, right?), but I don't think she should get her second for Julie & Julia. She was delightful, but eh.

I may or may not be playing in the thread tonight. My eyes have been giving me some trouble, and I think too much computer time is the culprit. We'll see if I can stay away.

I still haven't seen The Blind Side, making me 9/10 on the BP nominees. Didn't see Julia & Julia or The Last Station (who else did?) either, so I'd have to go with Carey Mulligan over the lame Bullock/Streep combo.

Streep hasn't won since Sophie's Choice in '82, but she's been nominated 15 times overall, I think.

No last-minute reprieve for those of you caught in that cable war, huh?

I think this is the first year ever that I haven't seen ANY of the nominated movies. So I'm not too invested in who wins/loses, but I'm a sucker for a good awards show, no matter what.
