Well.... Jolie, Depp and Ronan ?

NGNG !!

I am going to rest, good night ladies and gentlemen.

Go Marion, go !

What can I say? I'm a rebel :)

Jolie -- because she's won every time she's been nodded by the HFPA. Christie is my alternate.

Depp -- solid performance, eight prior nominations w/out a win, he's due

Ronan -- that's my NGNG prediction for the night, most certainly :-)

Cheers and I hope you wake up to some good news in the morning!

Here's hoping! I wonder if a Jolie win would damage La Christie's chances?! I suppose it doesn't matter either way, since I think they may well have given it to Angie since she would attend, unlike Julie. I think it's ALL about the SAG though, really.

I wish there were youtubes of the Critics Choice Awards, I could only find Daniel Day-Lewis on it.

Dorothy Porker said...

You're right, loomer. I will be *very* scared if Marion loses the SAG. Although I'll cling on to the hope that, like Brody, she'll come in and take the Oscar without the SAG.

10/14 for me, sucka!

k_obrien said...

and 3/4 of my alternates became the actual winners.

AND I predicted Extras.

Dorothy Porker said...

OK ok, I bow to you :)

k_obrien said...

I accept your submission.

The battle has just begun. There's SAG and Oscar yet to be conquered, and I can assure you, I shall emerge victorious. And, oh, how glorious it shall be. It is then, and only then, that the true victor will reign...in short:

I TOO CAN COMMAND THE WIND, K!
