  1. Holy hell, all those nominations for Johannson in Her. I'm seriously going to have to see it just to check out how one can deliver voice performance that is apparently so brilliant.

    1. The reviews RAVE her, and this could really be a groundbreaking nomination if it happens...and I think it will!

      I'm so excited for her and the movie and I can't wait to see it!!!

      :P

  2. Wow! The local St. Louis film critics have quite the list of awards. I need to make sure I can't become a member again. There used to be one called the "Gateway Film Critics", and I needed to review more recent films.

    Also, a lot of these are very predictable.

    1. I've thought about looking into my local film critics society, but my lack of ability to see movies relatively quickly wold work against me, I'm sure.

  3. Really hoping ScarJo can get that Oscar nod after all of these notices. Watch out for Harrison Ford tomorrow in the SAG nominations. He's my NGNG pick.

    1. I'm predicting Ford right now too, although I doubt highly he gets an Oscar nomination.
