    I'm very happy for Abigail Breslin. There are many talented child actors who come across as creepy and too adult like in their roles (Dakota Fanning and Haley Joel Osment, I'm looking at you) Abigail is a great actress, but has always managed to come across as a kid. But I do NOT understand how she qualifies in the supporting actress category for that movie, but Toni Collette was submitted in the best actress category. That makes no sense to me!

    ^ Mmm, I think that Toni was sort of caught between supporting and lead actress.

    Anyone remember Keshia-Castle Hughes in Whale Rider? Gosh, I loved her in that movie.

    I would agree that any of the roles in that movie are caught between supporting and lead. I guess that to my way of thinking, they're all either one or the other.

    Agreed. That movie had pretty much the entire main cast on a level playing field in terms of acting.

    I am happy that "An Inconvenient Truth" was nominated for best documentary. Bravo!

    Will Smith had my support for Best Actor, just after seeing the preview from Pursuit of Happyness.

    I'm actually not at all surprised by the Dreamgirls best movie 'snub'. I haven't seen it though I've heard good things about it, but what I hear is how the characters make the movie and not so much the movie itself.

    Also very excited Ryan Gosling got nominated for Half Nelson. That is such a well deserved nomination!
