Sonic’s just waiting for someone to beg him to come back from on high. To get huffy and leave in response to one post is so immature. All I did was question the basis of his vitriolic response to one contestant on American Idol. And clearly I hit a nerve.

Back on topic: Damien, in which categories did Victor/Victoria win?

...considering that I only really mentioned in the previous post that I'm glad that Paul Schneider and Sam Rockwell were getting attention, I'd like to say that your comment came out of nowhere but that wouldn't necessarily be the case, would it?

...incidentally, seeing as how Sonic has said "Later" (who knows how long that'll last, but be it as it may) does that mean that the only straights on this board are Zahveed, me, and Moviewes?

Just come out and admit it, Sabin. You wanna fuck the hell out of Casey Affleck.

Wow. 'The Assassination of Jesse James...' takes 8 nominations. I'm pleased to see Paul Schneider and Sam Rockwell receive some attention. They both gave great supporting performances. Especially Paul Schneider whose faux humanist anguish I've detested for several years. He stuck out like a sore thumb in David Gordon Green's films. Yet somehow in 'Lars and the Real Girl' and 'The Assassination of Jesse James...' he found his calling as the polar opposite: men with a little more piss and vinegar than those around them. In 'Jesse James...', he validates the twenty minute-long excursion into showing us what happens to the remnants of a gang after the band breaks up (whatever you please); and in 'Lars', he's been ready to smack the shit out of his brother for so long that this blow-up doll bullshit is almost a different kind of annoying escape for him.

I still find it amazing that 'Lars and the Real Girl' seemed to thrive in most circles for Ryan Gosling's performance and yet for me the movie almost works in spite of its obnoxiousness.

Agreed. A skrieking mess of a performance and a sheer toad of a character. I would've liked to have seen Philip Bosco on this list.

4. Emmanuelle Seigner in La Vie en Rose

What a wonderful performance. This was a very competitive category this year (really, any of the five actresses could've realistically taken the Oscar home), but in re-watching La Vie en Rose, Seigner's Titine is a true stand-out. Her performance haunts the rest of the film.

OTOH, I can't support any nominations for the completely odious Knocked Up. Even Mann's comic, scene-stealing turn.

Thanks Pen -- corrected it.

Victor/Victoria won 9. Interestingly, that was another picture Patricia Norris worked on.
