    This is getting hilarious!! The “Tom Hooper directing malarkey” showed up here too!! And he was nominated but the film wasn’t…

    And I seriously hope Ann Dowd gets nominated tomorrow. Hathaway seriously needs some competition. Otherwise, the Supp Actress race could be all over. Do the Academy members “like Sally Field, do they really, really like Sally Field” so much so as to give her a 3rd Oscar? And Helen Hunt has already won one (for Lead Actress).

  • A pretty ordinary list of winners, but not bad by any stretch. Just a bit on the safe side…
