Gabourey Sidibe & Carey Mulligan

Bullshit. Utter bullshit. Tonight's Best Actress award will likely be handed to either Meryl Streep (Julie and Julia) or Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side). Bullshit. Utter bullshit. Excuse my rant but I cannot fathom how anyone who's seen Precious or An Education could cast their vote for anyone besides Gabourey Sidibe or Carey Mulligan. The votes should be split between these two--not the Biopic Queens who starred in two of this year's least interesting films. If there is a Movie God, and I'm not sure I believe there is, one of these two talented women will take home a statue tonight. If not, at least Hurt Locker will win Best Picture. Right? ... Right? Bullshit. Utter bullshit.

Yeah, not really happy with Sandra's win. Great movie, I thought, and she was pretty good. But an Oscar?

Carey Mulligan had the best performance of any of the nominees, in my opinion. Newcomers usually come away empty-handed at the Oscars, but I'm sure she'll be recognized a lot as her career progresses.

I wished Sidibe or Mulligan would have won. Both were excellent.

Mirren was also excellent in Last Station, but like someone pointed out, no one saw that, so she wasn't even in the running.

I need to see Blind Side to see what the fuss was about.
