    This guy is gay for sure. All his little arm candy bimbos don't fool anyone. Least of all his boyfriend bad shit (brad pitt for those of you that don't get it). Left winged retardo.

    God this guy is a mutt. He needs a haircut and I'll bet he also needs a bath. He's a terrible actor and I think he's just plain ugly. His nostrils are so freakishly huge - all the better to snort that crap with I bet. Please just shave and then die already.

    It's very nice to see both Kenneth Branagh, Max Von Sydow and Meryl Streep nominated. It means there is still good film making going on - not just "movies" being made. By that I mean "Kung Fu Panda 18" or "Fast and Furious 9", you know? You'd think there were no more good books being written, when we know there are more stories out there. My own cousin is a writer/director embarking on his second major movie. It was marvelous when I was able to see his movie, which was such an original, on Showtime. Between The Decedents, Iron Lady, Moneyball, Hugo, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, et.,al., I'm glad our history of cinematic entertainment is not left to: Man on a Ledge.

    He's the sexiest man period. Johnny Depp is lagging way behind. Do you recall the scene in "Meet Joe Black" when his character made love to Claire Forlani's character? My, my but he is just a perfect specimen of a human male!

    I object to Rooney Mara's nomination. That was so silly. I simply cannot believe that.

    I'm glad that there are a few comedy films nominated. Usually the academy only nominates dramas. This is good. All are deserving.
