I didn't see many of the movies/performances nominated-I always rent the dvds after its all over
but I was very happy "Ratitioulle" won-so original and well done. Also Juno for best original screenplay-the story is very real and very sweet (and so well acted).
Overall, it seems a lot of deserving performances didn't make the nomination cut-I don't think that means those who did didn't give worthy performances, just that there were so many to choose from and only 5 will make it to the fianl ballot. While a lot of movie arent' to my taste these days (too violent) there are a lot of superb actors giving great performances but it has to get narrowed down somehow One of my favorite movies of the year, "Stardust" wasn't nominated for anything-just the way it goes.
Having said that, Johnny Depp has
to win some year
