our nominees in the "they wuz robbed" category are...

Actor in a leading role: Eric Bana, Munich
Actress in a leading role: Dame Judi Dench, Ladies in Lavender
Foreign language film: C.R.A.Z.Y. (Canada)
Music (song): "A Love That Will Never Grow Old" by Emmylou Harris (thanks to Jason for pointing out my glaring omission)

I know, I know. Dench got a nomination for Mrs. Henderson Presents. And let's face it: she can belch and get an Oscar nod. But her performance as the sweetly tortured Ursula in this under-the-radar film deserves recognition.

I've got Oscar fever!

Guess if your brother has ever used these three words in a row "sweetly tortured ursula."

I think they should have nominated Mme Rouge for BIRTHDAY SECRETS AND FOOLISH FRIENDS.

I logged onto the Oscar site at 8:30 and kept hitting refresh til they posted the noms. I share the fever darlin'! This year it's all about Heath and Jake. I'll be on my couch with popcorn at 3:00 for all the pre-game-show red-carpet stuff. I'm an addict.

What does Mitz know?!?! She' not even really a chick.

Mitz, I can't stand the Stanley Cup, World Series, or Superbowl! (See? Kitty can scratch...) Actually, I could stand them very well if they'd strip down to their jockstraps and do extra butt-slapping... Oh, yes...

YJA: I repeat: there was no party. I'm old and fed-up. And we didn't see you at the movie lastnight. Check your voice mail for the invite.

Shora: Heath! Heath! He has to win...

MR, Bana was good, but not great. Hot... absolutely.

Judi is so the best thing ever. She was cooler than what was cool before sliced bread ruled the earth.
