The Blind Side
Crazy Heart

I didn't watch, but I was upset when I heard Farrah Fawcett was snubbed and Michael Jackson wasn't in the In Memorium.

Michael Jackson? Did he ever act?

I have yet to see The Hurt Locker, The Blind Side and Crazy Heart.

Looking forward to them. (They don't let me out much.)

Man, Sandra Bullock was CLASSY wasn't she? She's awesome.

I soooo need to see The Blind Side. Can't believe I haven't yet. . . Hurry up DVD sales. . . . :-)

Nice post. I'd have to say Best Dressed was Sandra Bullock, though. :-)

I didn't see it. I'm so behind the times on movies it's not even funny!

But I love the make-over you gave to your blog :).

Best shoes... didn't think of that category, and I totally agree with your pick! :-)
But I agree with Lynn, Sandra best dressed. Yes, I LOVED her speech. And Jesse's eyes all teared-up. So sweet.
Tim Robbins' intro of Morgan WAS great! I forgot about that. I lol'ed.
Let me know if you see any of those "wanna see" films. Looking forward to your take.
Have a great week!
