Gee, all that was missing was the dun-dun-DAH! after Leo's "...for the criminally insane". True, although I don't see why any of those reasons would preclude it from being recognized in the acting categories. Emily Mortimer, especially seems to be a pretty good candidate in support just based on th...

And while I'm being grumpy, what's with the changing of the pronunciation of "Godot" from "Ga-doe" to "God-oh"? According to director Anthony Lane from a NY Times interview : GOD-dough is what Samuel Beckett said. Also, the word has to echo Pozzo. That’s the right pronunciation. Go-DOUGH is an Amer...

How on earth did the winning song garner so many votes? Granted the competition was lackluster but for that ditty to win by such a landslide was ridiculous. By the way - and unusually so, for such a gay-oriented event - not many attractive men on the stage this year They were probably outside, gett...

The Aviator from this disappointing bunch.

I think Rush will still take it; if there's one thing you can't miss with his acting (especially on stage), it's THE ACTING.
