  1. Sadly I can see Meryl Streep running away with everything she's nominated for despite her role as Thatcher being extremely underwhelming, she could barely pull our accent off properly. It'll be interesting to see who wins all of these though. I can't wait until the Oscars!

  2. I love the Oscars! I thought "Man or Muppet" was a hilarious song, and I'm glad Midnight in Paris is nominated for something.

  3. Well, I have seen Bridesmaids...and that about sums it up. I am almost finished reading The Help, then I will watch the movie. I am embarrassed that I haven't seen many of these films.


    P.S. I gave you an award over on my blog. Come check it out when you get a chance:)

  4. Love Midnight in Paris!

  5. Yay! I LOVE watching the Oscars! Every year I try to watch all the movies (although I haven't succeeded in this yet).

  6. I can't wait for the Oscars! And oh dear, Madonna is not going to be happy-nor Elton!

  7. thanks for the roundup! I haven't had time to see the nominations.

  8. I've only seen Midnight In Paris, and this year's list made me realize that I need to get out more! However, I did love that move and I hope it wins. :)

  9. I hope Midnight in Paris wins something. I heart that show.
