some obligatory bitching: - original screenplay is weak this year but no way King's Speech is in the top 7. NO WAY in hell - some terrific scores that always get overlooked: 'Never Let Me Go' / 'The Ghost Writer' / 'The American' - Valhalla Rising for makeup but no cinematography is not a great look (and Cronenweth's TSN is some of his most flat and uninspired work to date) - I can understand The American missing in most categories, but screenplay?? I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT - Jim Broadbent continues to be underappreciaited around here. - No 'Mysteries of Lisbon' for costumes means that I have to vote for 'Made in Dagenham.' I guess I'm ok with that. - Marion Cotillard's performance in Inception is bafflingly well-regarded considering how bland and brief and one-note it is. - wtf is with the Bening snub? She was the best thing about that movie - Kunis is blegh - Alice in Wonderland's costumes are gross - Rabbit Hole is underrated - Has no one seen 'Poetry?'
some nice things: - True Grit DOMINATED - Carey Mulligan is a nice surprise - Corbijn getting in is the silver lining I choose to see - Mike Leigh for director YES PLEASE - Replace Bening with Portman and lead actress would have been perfect - Ruffalo shouldn't be here but his face in that picture is hilarious - production design is literally flawless - makeup is virtually flawless - Scott Pilgrim's tech nods are the shit
Thanks again, pendragon. Sorry we're all crusty bitches.
I thought the love for Black Swan was dead and buried. So glad I was proven wrong! Now can you haters stop being so noisy with your hating?
Always nice to see Carey Mulligan getting some love. Same with Gosling, who got in for the one that is perhaps his best performance to date. The Corbijn nomination was unexpected... I hope you guys don't forget him when we get to 2007.
