BIG win for Anne Hathaway!! ~~ and Meryl Streep. I mean, not such a big win for Meryl ‘coz she’s got a gazillion awards, but it was BIG for Anne… and her speech, I liked that it was mostly not about her. LOL’ And she was emotional… major points for an Oscar win. An Oscar win should bring her to tears… no? Oscar loves that, right? Emotional Best Actress…

I got 12/16, pretty amazing~~ Slumdog Millionaire won BIG too., including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Young Actor, and Best Composer (aka, Best Score). Not sure about the score win, but oh well. Also… BIG loss for Benjamin Button.

Other winners… Milk for Best Ensemble and Best Actor, The Dark Knight for Best Supporting Actor, Best Action Movie.  And Kate Winslet for The Reader, which I haven’t seen yet~~ For the winners, go here.

GGs are so close!

Where is the Milk LUV? And The Dark Knight LUV? I truly thought that Milk would score a Best Picture Drama, and some other awards…

Is the GG people who nominate a little… mo’phobe? Just saying… isn’t GG aired in ABC? Anyway, there is definitely more ‘conservative’ choosing of films in this one… at least in the drama category.

Click here for the complete of nominees, which include:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road, Slumdog Millionaire, Vicky Cristina Barcelona… in the film categories. And~~~ 30 Rock, Dexter, House, Weeds in the TV categories…

And a nomination for Catherine Keener for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Made-for-TV Film, in the film An American Crime (which she starred with Ellen Page!) and totally FREAKED me out.

I just find it a bit odd that Critics’ Choice Awards have been pretty much different to these nominees… MORE NOMINATIONS and WINNERS in the following weeks~~~

And how is it that Waltz with Bashir gets a Best Foreign nod, and not a Best Animated Feature? Waltz with Bashir > Bolt or Kung Fu Panda.
