    Tom Cruise and Robert Downey.

    Fucking phenomenal.

    Frank Langella could be the best person of the bunch, but he shouldn't be nominated.

    And Franco for Pineapple Express.

    I know it became kind of a cliche to say, but Heath Ledger really does deserve best supporting actor. His Joker was incredible.

    I wish they had separated the supporting actors by genre, so Tom Cruise could win solely based on his dancing.

    Was "Mamma Mia" really that good, or is it an indictment against the film industry that it's considered among the five best comedy/musicals of 2008?

    Wall-E should not be slummed off into the animated category. If it's a comedy, it was the best of the year. If it's a drama, it surely was among the best. I haven't seen the year-end releases yet, but they'll have to be very good to beat Wall-E.

    Have you seen Frost/Nixon yet? It's brilliant.

    It's a travesty that "Burn After Reading" is nominated for anything. The Golden Globes probably just want Clooney to show up.

    I love that Cruise was nominated. Too bad Ledger will win that category in a walk.

    I can't wait to see Benjamin Button.

    In Bruges was a comedy/musical?
