Angie said...

haha you're not nuts, it used to be 5 but this year it's 10!

Can't say i'm a fan of having 10 movies nominated. Seems like a cop out.

None the less, several very good movies.

Christoph Waltz better win best supporting actor! Otherwise.. there will be hell to pay.. Nazi Hell!

Disappointed (but not at all surprised) that Jude Law isn't nominated for his role in Sherlock Holmes.

See you on the red carpet!
