Gran Torino, really? David, you said this movie was horrible, what's happening?
HOORAY DARK KNIGHT!
No Doubt & Revolutionary Road on the Top 10 list, interesting...
Josh Brolin?! for Milk?! But...you forgot about Heath Ledger, NBR. Grumble.
Okay, so, a pretty strange spread. Between this, the Spirit Awards and the Gotham Awards, Frozen River & Vicky Cristina Barcelona are now on my list of gotta-sees. But it's gonna take a lot more for Gran Torino to receive that honor. And yay! No Seven Pounds anywhere yet! Does that mean I don't have to see it? P.S. I'm not a Will Smith fan
Interested to see how the rest of the awards season pans out. Methinks this is gonna be an unusual year.
