    I do like the list but Miranda Richardson is a bit of a stretch.I just hope Jacki Weaver gets nominated for her outstanding performance in the little seen but brilliant animal kingdom.

    No Melissa Leo???

    Is interesting they choose Adams over Leo from “The Fighter.” I think Carter will take it as she’s playing the Queen Mother and Brit voters will respond to that. Given how the BAFTAs have more overlay with the Oscars than Globes or Critic’s Choice, does point to how Adams may have more of an advantage there over Leo.

    i think so too. in fact, the GGs and BFCAs have zero overlap with the oscars, but the baftas and the guilds do.

    so leo still isn’t locked imo. maybe if she wins the sag, but i still think adams could take it

  • clair de lune

    soo… if Exit through the gift shop wins…. who picks up the award? lol

    Thanks for any other great article. Where else may just anyone get that type of information in such a perfect manner of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the look for such information.
