- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Hope it wins best picture. Really like this movie, it had its flaws ( Forrest Gump II ) but over all, really enjoyed it. AND, I never really understand people who say good movies are too long, I want them to last as long as possible.
- Milk. I know, I know, I should be rootin' for this one to get the gay points, but I just liked TCCOBB better. DO think Sean Penn should get the Oscar for actor
- The Reader. You all know how the Hollywood loves this sort of film. But it is very good. Interesting story, Kate is a shoe in for best actress.
- Frost/Nixon. Now here I would have stuck DOUBT , but the academy loves Opie/Richie. It is a very good story, we saw the play, and loved it. Not every one's tastes and you will need to know a little bit going in. A Tony winning play , a good movie, I thought it dumbed it down, just a little tiny bit.
- Slumdog Millionaire. I am so not on the bandwagon for this movie, which, if things go the way they have been, will win best pic. India is so hot now, you know. I love Bollywood movies. Watch them all the time. Sing, dance, stilted acting, all the things I love! Slumdog just tried to be too many things for me. Sure , it's a good love story, BUT, it's just to dark ....
