If the Academy thought about not wanting to give people too many awards, then Viola Davis would have an Oscar right now instead of Meryl Streep. And I agree with what was said: there is no way that if “Lincoln” wins Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, it is going to lose to Best Actor. If it wins all those awards, it’ll be because of Daniel Day-Lewis. They don’t care if its Oscar history. If it’s a good performance, they’ll go for it.


The opening music was from The Master, right? It was great…


Uh…did Terrence see the Les Mis review in EW yet?

Clayton, you say that you have a horrible feeling that Joaquin will get it in front of Jackman, but don’t you like Phoenix’s performance better than Jackman’s? Why is that a bad feeling?

Hope everyone’s enjoying the improved sound quality. My wallet hurts from my new mic, but it’s worth it…
