It'd be funny if "Django Unchained" won some awards, because then Tarantino could go on a very entertaining "in your face" press tour :D

also i'm hoping Hugh Jackmans "singing" in Les Mis doesn't get any encouragement :lol: (just kidding) (well he does "sing" better than Crowe or is that a crow)

Amor is best foreign movie. And the main actress Emmanuelle Riva is having her 86 birthday(!). Wow!

i haven't really seen any of these properly (all the way through) except "Django Unchained" and "Skyfall" so i have not much to relate to in all of this.

i've been mainly watching old pre '63 stuff. i accidently downloaded several episodes of "kleiner roter tractor" which seemed quite well done! :lol:

oh and watching some old old twilight zone eps.

Kleiner roter Traktor? I just had to look that up - I have never seen it.

I missed the last part, but as I was only seeing the livestream from ABC where the happening was discussed but not fully shown, it was not too much fun. Maybe next year!
