I seriously doubt Depp and Adams will be nominated. Stranger things have happened and God knows it has been a really bad year for the women, but I just don't see it.
PEACE.

Yea, Adams? Don't see it either. I was most surprised that Julie Christie didn't make their list for Away From Her.

There's already a LOT of buzz out here for George Clooney to be nominated.

It's always Oscar season.

Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

I thought his movie was really trashy.

Knocked Up was a truly awful movie.
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

I saw LIONS FOR LAMBS on Tuesday and believe Meryl Streep deserves a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category. Her performance is simply astonishing.
ATONEMENT is supposed to be the big Oscar film this year with most critics that saw it in the festivals where it debuted giving it raves.

I assumed Tommy Lee Jones had a lock for VALLEY OF ELAH.

Yes, all in all a pitiful year for women. It's a Louise Fletcher-winning-for-CUCKOO'S NEST-type-of-year. Watch for surprises at the Golden Globes -- Molly Shannon for YEAR OF THE DOG, say. And why not? And yes, Ms. Christie. She may emerge with critics' association lists.

Lots of buzz around that one testing.

And here's something surprising, another article cited Amy Adams for Enchanted.
